Peel

In 2006, I was frustrated with how hard it was to follow great music websites. This led me to design and develop Peel, an MP3 blog reader and player rolled into one. In 2011 I released a completely revamped version that supports smart playlists, keyboard shortcuts, SoundCloud, last.fm scrobbling and includes a plug-in system.

Tónlist.is

Tonlist.is is the biggest digital music distributor in Iceland. I wrote a Mac application for improving the purchase experience for Mac users. The design was heavily inspired by the iTunes Music Store available in Apple's iTunes. The application lets users purchase and download music and have it automatically added to their iTunes library. Unfortunately the application is no longer available for download.
