David Friday Sweets: Drag and drop uploaders

Tuesday’s Taylor release revealed two new apps built by our friends Christian Stropp and Dorian Roy. The apps are built on top of the SoundCloud API and are very similar in terms of features – letting you upload audio to your SoundCloud account by simply dragging and dropping files onto the apps.cloudpost

  • Christian’s app is called CloudPost and works on Mac OS 10.5 or later.scuplogo
  • Dorian’s app is called Scup and works on both Windows and Mac OS but you need to have Adobe AIR installed.

Note that these apps are not maintained by SoundCloud. Please send feedback and bug reports to Christian and Dorian. Also, CloudPost is open source if you want to contribute to the project.

The first time you launch your desktop uploader you need to connect the app with your SoundCloud account.

auth

Just click the button and you are automatically forwarded to SoundCloud where you can allow access to your account.

connect

Note that the app is not storing your SoundCloud password. Instead it gets a temporary key that you can make unusable anytime by revoking the access on your account settings page. This is good if you for instance work temporarily on someone else’s computer.

revoke

Once the app is authorized you can start dragging files onto the drop window.

drag

The files are uploaded automatically but set to private by default so no one can access them until you hit “Send Set”.

scup

You can add information and drag artwork onto the image box. You can also add more tracks by dragging files onto the application.

info

If you make the set private you can enter email addresses to the people you want to share with.

private

When you are done with the settings, hit “Send Set” and the set ends up on your account page.

We think these apps are pretty cool and would like to thank Christian and Dorian for developing them! Try it out and let them (and us) know what you think.
