Users can 'Explore' all of the shows that have been uploaded to ShowStream. The 'Editors Picks' section gets updated weekly and features the best of the best.
You can also explore ShowStream's database by artists and shows based on a number of metrics.
Each show has a score that is determined by the users of showstream. Shows Can be upvoted or downvoted, or added to the queue.
Artists have a total score which is a cumulation of each individual show's score that they uploaded to the stream. The Profiles display each show that a specific artist has uploaded to ShowStream. In future versions off the app artists will have the ability to list their upcoming shows and sell tickets to those events.
Artist Upload Show
When artists upload a show they are required to set a date, the price of the show, and a venue name. They then build their setlist from the audio file they uploaded.
ShowStreams search functionality was Inspired by Medium's. The search form will return values for artists, users, and venue names.
Every show a user upvotes gets added to their library. Users can also build playlists from the shows that they upvoted. Downvoting a show also removes it from the library.
The Feed's functionality is pretty basic at the time being, but when venues get added into the mix, it will be much more interesting. Right now it only notifies a user when an artist they follow uploads a show, or when another user follows them.
The Queue functions like the browser's search history, with the most recent song played at the end of the list. When a show gets added to the queue, it is appended to the end of that list and 'queued' up to be played next.
