DESCRIPTION:
This app is a frame for the web app. The advantage of using this app is that you get an experience much more similar to a native app, with several additional features (see list below). SpotCommander must be installed on the computer running Spotify (see website for instructions).

SpotCommander is a remote control for Spotify for Linux, optimized for mobile devices. It's based on HTML5 & PHP, works on any device with a modern browser, and it's free and open source.

SpotCommander is the most elegant, intuitive, feature-rich & universal remote control for Spotify, exclusive for Linux users!

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:
If something doesn't work as expected, or a desired feature is missing, please report an issue before giving a low rating.

There is no official way to remote control the Spotify client. That is the main reason why some features are not available. SpotCommander's features are made possible by different methods & hacks, and may break if Spotify changes something in its client or web API.

    It took a few minutes to install on an Ubuntu build and a few more minutes to install on LMDE the manual way, but works flawlessly. When I get paid, I'm donating ASAP. Thank you very much.
