It’s been a couple of years since Unify launched and it’s still going strong, transferring millions of your tracks from iTunes to the Spotify cloud. With over 12.5k downloads and counting, this little app has proved to be a handy tool for any muso.
Spotify does allows you to import your files in one (albeit clumsy) swoop, but it simply links to the files on your machine and doesn’t find the song in the cloud allowing you to access them from anywhere. Spotify also doesn’t provide you with any control of what you want to import. This is where Unify fits in.
Download the app and give it a try.
It’s been a good week for Unify. It’s had some great coverage on fantastic blogs like Lifehacker, The Next Web, DinSide (Norway), Feber (Sweden) and Mac1 (Norway). Not to mention some brilliant Twitter coverage - Some people have even been sharing their Unified playlists on Twitter. Send me your epic playlists!
I’ve now reached over 2000 downloads when I was only aiming for 100, Yay! Rock on.
Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions. I’ve got some small improvements lined up for an update soon.
Here’s 3 little facts..
I’ve finally released a major new update (0.5). Unify now has a modern new look as well as loads of improvements under the hood. It’s around 4x faster at loading and checking your playlists.
You’ll notice a nice little orange album icon. This area displays all the albums your iTunes Library. Just drag them over to Spotify the same as you do with tracks.
Thanks to the generosity of Adobe, Unify now has a trusted certificate. That means you won’t get a warning when installing the application.
I’ve made a few updates to the live version, now 0.31
- Improved support for multi-select
- A bug-fix with the demo version not working
- Improved reliability of finding your iTunes Library
I also have some new features in the pipeline Including:
- Album search (drag entire albums over to Spotify)
- Much faster scanning
These features should be ready very soon, I’ll keep you posted. Go get it now and receive all these updates for free. www.getunify.com
I’ve updated Unify with some small improvements. Some bigger ideas are planned for the next version, but for now this should keep things running like clockwork :)
Unify will automatically update on startup. Alternatively go download it now.
Here is a list of changes (Version 0.2)
- Added multiple select support SHIFT+Click, CMD+Click and CTRL+Click (CTRL for PC only)
- Added cache for results (i,e, Clicking another playlist while one is scanning doesn’t mean you have to start again, good for long playlists)
- Improved the font used on the PC version
- Fixed app name in taskbar/dock
- Fixed white screen on startup
- Fixed visual glitch in load bar
- Added a different icon for smart playlists
- Added a title in playlist area
- Added an animated ’loading’ icon on playlists
- Upgraded to jQuery 1.4 and all it’s glory
Hello everyone :)
Welcome to the little blog about Unify. After a few small naming issues, I have finally launched my latest little Air application. I plan to use this blog to discuss future developments and features and also explain some of the behind the scenes stuff.
Firstly go download Unify :) It’s fun.
I would love to hear what you would like to see in Unify. The new Air 2.0 is soon to be released and that means I will be able to enhance Unify with some slick new features. So i’m listening…
