Well over a year ago I designed a concept for a native OS X Hype Machine player just to see how one might fare, and if anyone was interested in it. I've used Hype Machine more in the last 3 years than Rdio, Spotify, Soundcloud and iTunes because there's a lot of good remixes on there, and people are great at submitting the latest songs.
Alex Marchant got in touch, asking if he could use the .psd to try and get an actual build going. By the start of this year we had something that worked, was a little buggy, but did what we largely used Hype Machine for - the 'Popular' tab, which is pretty much like a radio of the latest tracks.
Since then we've had chats with Hype Machine themselves, progressing the design, and almost becoming the official app but deciding to stay separate while we test the waters. We're at a stage where it's a usable product with a few kinks and enhancements to be made.
Other sections that people are asking for like Feed, Blogs, Genres have been designed and may be added soon if time permits. It's a spare time project between the both of us but I'm glad the reception has been very warm, and users have been more than helpful in letting us know about bugs, and supplying suggestions.
