Hello it would be nice if there could be an application like Spotify or deezer.
Sorry everyone, Spotify's rate limiting is too much for this app and I don't have good enough, inexpensive servers to handle the project. For the app to be as accurate and useful as possible, it has to update as much as possible. The minimum for LaMetric is 5 seconds.
Spotify managed to rack up 486 downloads on the LaMetric store.
That's obviously 486 requests to my server every 5 seconds. It just couldn't handle it, and I have more important projects that require the processing power. Also, Spotify understandably rate limits their API, so I can only get information from Spotify for a limited amount of users.
I changed the time to 1 minute intervals, which still didn't help with the rate limiting, as it's still 486 requests a minute.
I have open sourced the project on GitHub, here. You can set up your own application and server infrastructure if you have experience with that. For non-developers, I'm sorry, but I don't think a Spotify nor Deezer app is possible without the app being unreliable.
Would it be possible to modify the app in order every user can enter its own spotify API key ?
...that would be propably a good solution.... or even better Team up with Spotify to geat a Special API for this since i belive this app will become huge sucess and ist an top plus for spotify and a win win Situation !
Still the App i use now Mostly on my Device since i ever wished having such a Monitor for my Music!
Thanks. Yeah I also have this problem, I contacted LaMetric about it and they told me how to fix it. I'm at the airport fixing it now.
I will test on my clock when I return home :)
I just made this app. Search "Spotify" on the app store.
Same thing as Patrick - I am not able to connect me to my Spotify account - It comes back everytime to the login button :(
I have an Android 7.1.2 with the latest LaMetric version 2.0.1
One of the greatest apps for the La Metric - it sometimes display a ! is that a bug or what does it mean? But thats just a minor flaw.
By the way im having the again and again login Problem too try to go to the Website which is opening behind and Login there then Restart Lametric App - or use an iPad or iPhone from a Friend to login (need do it just once and u stay). It worked for me till fixed ;)

Same for me. As i selected the "Notification" options, sometimes the "!" pops up several times in a few minutes.
