Sorry, No followers
According to software engineer Stein Magnus Jodal, the developer behind the open-source music server, Mopidy, online music streaming company Spotify poorly managed its libspotify SDK and APIs, resulting in broken hardware and software applications that relied on the Spotify platform.
EMI Music is one of the leading international music companies. An extensive list of some of the world's most popular recording artists are represented on the company's labels. Some of these artists include the likes of Lily Allen, Bat For Lashes, The Beatles, Beastie Boys, Luke Bryan, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Gorillaz, David Guetta, Iron Maiden, Norah Jones, Lady Antebellum, Massive Attack, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Pink Floyd, just to name a few. EMI Music now provides the OpenEMI API that allows developers to access this music content and integrate it with other applications.
