Building the Future of Our Desktop Apps (atspotify.com)

Hmm, just 20 minutes before seeing this I was bemoaning the state of Spotify Windows desktop app. Seriously, still no EQ in 2021? And they seem to have removed any simple in-app way to manage cache/prevent download of songs, compared to years past.

I find it interesting watching the web coming to the desktop through projects like Electron and at the other end of the spectrum coming from native to the web with things like Flutter.

It feels like a race to see which one can overcome its shortcomings the fastest.

desktop app future is an oxymoron.
