We were inspired by wanting to all attach our phones to our respective speakers and play music at the same time in our dorm. We wanted to a way to share music instantaneously over the Internet, across language and cultural barriers. A way to listen to music together with your father halfway across the country, a way to share a special song with your long-distance girlfriend. We wanted to make a music sharing experience for people everywhere to listen to music with others. Thus emerged SongSync.
Technically, we're most proud of essentially eliminating the latency issues and using a scalable and strong backend. All the people at TreeHacks could connect to our service and everyone could play the same song on their devices simultaneously!
