Naming Your Application
If you are registering your application with us (on the My Applications page) you will need to enter the name of your app. This name will be used in communications to your app’s users when you seek authorization to access their data. We have a few pointers to consider when naming your app:
It shouldn’t imply endorsement by Spotify, but suggesting to users that it is “for Spotify” is acceptable.
It cannot begin with “Spot” or be similar to “Spotify” in sound or spelling.
Your Application’s Logo
Your logo should not include, or look similar to, the Spotify logo.
Using 30 Second Preview Clips
If you’re using the 30 second preview clips you will need to ensure that you link back to the full track on Spotify. We’ve provided buttons of various sizes in our resource downloads above for you to use.
For example, the app Tango does this well. In this particular example the button links to the full track on Spotify: http://open.spotify.com/track/2ZpjnusToPrH3KCFKJIcTJ
Another example can be found in our tutorial Creating an Artist’s Page.
Spotify Log In Best Practice
We’ve also created buttons that you should use when asking users to log in with their Spotify username and password.
Spotify Create / Add to Playlist Best Practice
With our new playlist endpoint users can create new playlists or add tracks to existing playlists from your experience. We’ve created buttons in Spotify style that you can use to indicate these actions. Again, you can find these buttons in our design resource downloads above.
