    Beware: it needs Java.

    It sure looks nice, but I can't shake that too-good-to-be-true feeling. How are these guys pulling this off? I am hesitant to even try this app because the landing page does nothing to gain my trust. It feels like a proposal for a pipe dream app that isn't sustainable.

    Please correct me if I'm missing something.

    I installed it on osx but it kept closing immediately after opening :/

    Went through the trouble of installing Java and tried it on Mac OS. It does not function nor look absolutely anything like what's presented in the landing page. Spotify connect, nowhere to be found. Perhaps not bad for an Alpha but I am just disappointed that they would set such high expectations for a service that is in no way close to ready for usage.

    I might get some flak from you and the other designers that worked on this but the first thing I've seen that seems odd of a Mac app are the 'window' controls on the top right corner.

    Also a major thing I would change is move the left side-menu on the right, is easier to get to with the mouse.

    Just my 2 cents.

      How is a right-side menu easier to get to, than a left-side menu?

      And have you wondered why menu's are often on the left?

        For me and usually on a larger screen, right hand side menus are more accessible. Most of my time I'm with my mouse in the right side of the screen ( because the right hand is my dominant one ) and if I don't do the extra effort to reach something, that's good.

        I don't really know where you found out the menus are often in the left, because all popular sites and templates have them ( menus, sidebars, CTAs ) on the right. Even DN.

        I'm not trying to offend you, just expressing my opinion.

          This is absolutely 100% not true.

          Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, ESPN and many, many, many of the largest sites in the world have their menus on the left. DN doesn't even have a menu on the right... they display ads on the right on most pages.

          For a proper comparison, you shouldn't compare "popular sites" though, so you should check out Spotify and Rdio. They have their menus on the left. iTunes also has their menu on the left. In terms of content flow, western cultures read from left to right, so it absolutely makes sense to have the menu system for a music app on the left.

    It's essentially pirating, yes.

    TL;DR: Music aggregator service taking illegally uploaded mp3s from VK (Russian social network) and presenting them through pretty UI.
