Today we're featuring a guest post from our friends at Retronyms. They've built some amazing community features into their app Tabletop using the SoundCloud API and have open sourced their CloudSeeder Devkit. This post was written for us by David Shu. David is a software engineer at the Retronyms and has worked on a number of iOS apps, including Tabletop and Dokobots. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA.
We recently built a SoundCloud-powered community into our app Tabletop, a modular audio environment for the iPad, using the CocoaSoundCloudAPI. The project, CloudSeeder, lets users browse, stream, favorite, and comment on Tabletop tracks without ever leaving the app.
As developers, we discovered tons of talented users in our Tabletop community. At the same time, our users found inspiration from each other and a new showcase for their creations. To share in the excitement of community creation with all developers, today we're releasing the CloudSeeder Devkit as open source on Google Code.
