Interaktionsspel på Spotifys app-plattform (Swedish)
Spotify wants to explore the possibilities of social gaming within their desktop client. Thanks to their Spotify Apps API it is possible to build applications that integrate with the Spotify library while using modern web technologies. This thesis work consists of exploring what is possible using the Spotify App API and the most modern web technologies available. The main theme and goal of the Spotify App is to engage users in a social context. Creating a quiz application, which users can play along with using their smartphones, does this. This is targeted towards people being in the same room, sharing the experience. There is also a focus on usability and both group discussions and think-aloud interviews have been conducted regarding the development and design of the product.
