This project was – conceived and built in 7 weeks – during Intrepid Pursuits' Apprentice Program. Intrepid is part of Accenture Digital. Mixity was designed and developed for both iOS and Android.
Based on client conversations, our MVP goal was personal music discovery while prioritizing Spotify Premium members.
App Flow & Wireframes
Upon entering the app, the user is prompted with a login via Spotify Premium. Based on client feedback, the MVP was prioritized for only Spotify Premium members. If a user doesn’t have a Premium account, then they’re provided with a value carousel of what Mixity has to offer.
Users can browse through 30 hardcoded cities' playlists, beginning with 5 featured cities pulled from the list. This is a jumping-off point by providing what locations are most popular, and encouraging users to develop curiosity to dive deeper into what’s good, where. Users can also activate location settings to keep their city at the top.
Each City Playlist is a living playlist, showing songs from artists performing in that city that month. Users can shuffle, favorite, and save it into their Spotify account as a specialized playlist for that month. Using SeatGeek’s API, Mixity finds the city's upcoming shows, artists, and their respective genres. Mixity then uses Spotify API to pull the top 2 songs from each musician, filling the playlist.
Users can share the song via social media, or save the individual song in Spotify. Users can navigate back to its original playlist via the Music Player.
Look & Feel
With this look and feel, we provided two directions for the client, shown below. The client chose Option 2, and we took elements from both options in order to best showcase Mixity’s brand.
