The whole thing started with a quest for a native Spotify client for Linux. At that time, no native client existed (today there’s a beta client for premium users) so I decided to start doing one myself.

While I was searching for information about APIs etc for Spotify I somehow (I really don’t remember) bumped into Jamendo. After trying Jamendo for a while I decided to do my client for that service instead because I really like the concept. It’s pretty much the same as open source software but instead of developers putting code on the web, artists put their music on the web available for anyone to enjoy.

In the past, I’ve tried to create a desktop version of the application a couple of times but never got so far until now. With QtQuick and the N950 I really got the motivation and I hope I'll keep it.
