-Spotify in white Rdio Look




An interesting open source project is currently being distributed. It answers to the name Spotio is essentially something quite simple, namely a theme for the Spotify client for the Mac. About the sense or nonsense of a new look for a program that has certainly run in the background anyway, may certainly be argued. Spotio coats Spotify with a white paint, so that the client looks as it once did the streaming service Rdio. Perhaps it is so that you will probably not last a lifetime with Spotio – firstly because the client has no update system as Spotify (if the fix works, is the theme currently overridden), on the other hand is perhaps Spotify not pleased that you fully serving the customized client to download – since the package includes not only a theme, but the complete client.


Also, the program does not work when installing from third-sources is not permitted on a Mac. This setting can be found under System Settings> Security in the General tab. Here, the point must be made “no restrictions” on. The trick with the gatekeeper outwitting on Control + Open from the context menu did not work. All in all, one thing that you should adjust only temporarily. Why the whole thing? The developer Devin Halladay gives it away:

I sorely miss Rdio. It was the perfect music streaming service: quality streaming, massive selection, perfect UX, beautiful UI, and wonderful social interaction features. When it was bought by Pandora, many of us were left out in the dust and were forced to choose between lesser services like Apple Music, Spotify, and Google Play Music.

I know this little theme can not recreate the amazing productsthat Rdio what, but I’m really glad did I found a small way to pay tribute to Rdio’s product and UI in my own way. This is not perfect, it is not Rdio, but as of now it’s the Closest we’re going to get.
