  1. Mark tracks that have already been listened to better

    Instead of using tiny check mark, you could gray out an entire track that's already been listened to, or place a green dot next to it the way that Beatport Pro desktop app does.

  2. Make the track preview window bigger

    It's too small. There's all that space at the top that could be utilized.

  4. Track Skipping Intervals

    It would be awesome to customize the amount of time a tracks skips when we press the left/right arrows. If we can't set the skip time to a specific length of our choosing, which would be preferable in my opinion, then maybe a few options would be adequate. 10 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute would be great options. Excellent work guys!

    Crates primarily displays feeds of tracks, which often contain hundreds/thousands of tracks. If you sorted by artist, label, or track name, the returned list wouldn’t be very useful.

    Could you guys give some examples of columns you’d want to sort by, and in what context?

    Crates now supports filtering by Beatport genre, release date, and musical key, so I think that might cover most of the use cases here.

    In regards to adding or removing columns – I like that idea. What columns from Beatport would you want to be able to add, besides genre?

  6. I would love the ability to actually customize my own keyboard shortcuts

    The arrow keys may have been hot shit in 1996, but these days most peoples hands gravitate towards AWSD (Games) or ASDF (Typing).
    The ability to set these ourselves would, for example, probably speed up listening and skipping through tracks.

  7. Allow an option for me to share my cart with anyone through a private URL

    I've always wanted this feature. So that I can get friends to come in and listen to my cart and then give a thumbs up or thumbs down to the items in my cart.

  8. Feature: "Chart Score"

    It's my understanding that Beatport doesn't release the number of times a track has been bought or played, correct? One way Crates might be able to give tracks a popularity ranking could be thought something like a "Chart Score".

    Every time a track gets posted to a chart, it gets one point. You could then sort tracks based on Chart Score to get a good idea of what tracks are blowing up. For example if I click on "Black Cow" by
    Booka Shade & Yaruba it appears on 30 charts by my count. That would give it a Chart Score…

    Thanks for the feedback Ryan – you’re right that we could capture a “Times Charted” every time we load the track, but tracks only get loaded when a user plays/selects them. This means the data would only get updated on tracks users are selecting, so I don’t think it’s that valuable.

    The other thing is that not many DJs are posting Charts on Beatport right now, for various reasons, so I actually don’t think “Times Charted” is a very meaningful metric until Beatport expands their playlists/charts. It’s not a priority of theirs right now, unfortunately.

    We’ll definitely keep an eye on this once we get access to the new Beatport API next year though, hopefully. :) Keep the feedback/ideas coming until then!

  9. Feature: Add Support for "Beatport DJs"

    I really LOVE Beatport DJs, its the only reason why I still go to Beatport at all instead of using Crates exclusively.

    If you're not familiar with it, Beatport DJs allows you to follow Beatport users who have created profiles in the Beatport DJ system. If you're following someone and they release a new chart, it appears in your feed. I've been building up the DJs (all of whom are generally producers and want more avenues to get people to listen to their tracks) I follow and now get four to five new charts every week, which provides a great…

    I’ve asked Beatport if the list of DJs you follow is accessible via the API, but it doesn’t appear so. I’ll update here if we here back from Beatport.

    Building our own DJ follow system would be an alternative to consider, but it’s a bit messy considering Beatport differentiates between Artists (producers) and DJs.

    In the mean time, you can easily access any chart on Beatport in Crates. If your Beatport Chart URL is this: https://pro.beatport.com/chart/springtime/343296

    Then you can access it on Crates by putting that last number in this URL, like this:

    http://crates.co/chart/slug/343296

  10. Add "Next Track" and "Previous Track" buttons to the player

    Add simple fast forward and rewind buttons around the current play/pause button.

    Jay, have you tried using the hotkeys? You can quickly skip to the next track or previous track without needing to use a button. Click the ? at the top of Crates to see all the available hotkeys. Will that do the trick for you here? :)

    Out of curiosity, what interests you guys more:

    (1) Infinite Scroll – more tracks constantly load, without you needing to click to the next page?

    (2) More Tracks Per Page – Just more tracks per page, like 100 or 150, like the Beatport site?

    Thanks for feedback!
