Tubalr is now on Android!
Last night was a pretty big milestone in Tubalr’s history. Going mobile has been by far the biggest request, and nearly 3 years later…. it’s finally a reality. Around 1pm, v1 of the Tubalr app went live in the Google Play store.
Before reading on, go download the app, after all that’s what all this wait was for.
First I’d like to give credit where credit is due! The app was created by Iheanyi Ekechukw, a Notre Dame student who randomly shot me an email one day asking if he could tackle the app for a class project. I said sure, and got to work on a few API end points he would need and we discussed the flow of the app… after that he got to work.
All functionality that you have in the web version is now available through the Android app, minus creating accounts. For those that don’t know, here’s what available:
- Specific artist or band playlists
- Similar artists and bands playlists
- Genre Playlists
- Reddit Playlists
- Ability to build & listen to custom playlists for registered users.
Anyways, it’s done, it’s free, it’s v1… go download it! As always, shoot any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ve always built Tubalr with the feedback from its users and the Android app will continue to be built that way.
