Challenges

Sync the songs from the app with the website

The app required to sync all the songs with website at regular intervals.

Allow users to listen an audio clip of a song for just 15 seconds

The app would allow an initial stage user to listen to just a part of the song instead of the full song.

Allow two users to guess the songs they are listening and add the other as a friend

We had to integrate a game-like feature that would allow two specific users, who frequently pick up the same songs, to guess the song the other user is currently listening to. If one of the user is correct in guessing, they can view each other's profile and invite the other to be friends.

Solutions

In order to effortlessly sync the songs from the app with the website, we finally came up with the idea of keeping one service running in background on low priority mode that will eventually do a certain stuff without compromising battery drainage issue of the device.

To allow the users to listen to just 15 seconds of a song, we used user FFMPEG library that converts the full audio to few seconds audio. Ultimately, this allowed us to manage two songs from our end, i.e one is a sample song of 15 seconds and the other is a full song which can only be played after the user purchases the song.

To integrate this game-like feature, we created an algorithm at the back-end that kept a track of user’s activity and songs which are head by each user. At the application end, we managed the flow of gaming notifications, that would notify the users about the happenings.
