A video of the proof of concept:
I sent an application to create a Spotify App, but it was rejected due to:
"That’s because you have a Guitar hero feature in the app."
The App is a simple Guitar simulator as another Guitar simulators, ex:
- Guitar Freaks: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar_Freaks (was released in 1998 seven years before than the first Guitar Hero)
- Rock Band: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockband
- Frets on Fire: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frets_on_fire (an open source version)
I sent an e-mail trying to show the error to the Spoify team, because I want to do a Guitar simulator, not a Guitar Hero copy :( , and now they told me:
"It is not the fact that it is similar to Guitar Hero per sé it is the fact that we cannot have games with these concept in Spotify."
Ok, then I don't know why the app was rejected :( , the reason "we cannot have games with these concept in Spotify" is stupid, I don't know what kind of apps they want to have in the store...
