It’s time for yet an announcement for all you API lovers out there; a library making it really easy to implement SoundCloud streaming in your Cocoa apps. It’s built specially for the iPhone SDK 3.+ but should work for desktop Mac apps as well.
The library is a vital part of the SoundCloud iPhone app and will be used in the upcoming CitySound iPhone app as well. It’s written by Ullrich Schäfer and open source under the Apache License version 2.0.
To sum up, this library…
- makes it easy to implement the non trivial task of streaming audio in Cocoa apps
- nicely integrates with the existing Cocoa wrapper for the SoundCloud API
- supports streaming of public and OAuth protected tracks
- fits in commercial apps as well as music hack day mashups etc.
Feedback, questions, and suggestions are welcome in the SoundCloud API Google group!
