Mote.io is now available for iOS and Android!

Mote.io is a mobile app that lets you control websites like Pandora, SoundCloud, Grooveshark, Rdio, Vimeo, Hype Machine and more with your phone. 

Be lazy! Control the music while walking around the house, in bed, or sit back and watch some Vimeo videos on the couch.

After more than a year of development, Mote.io is finally available in the App and Google Play stores.

A Labor of Love

People have called Mote.io everything from a pet project to a start-up. They want to know how big the team is and where they can find our office. The truth is I’ve been working on Mote.io alone in my apartment in my spare time.

I built the first prototype of Mote.io because I wanted to be able to favorite tracks on Hype Machine while having a drink with friends. The feeling when I first got everything working (even if the remote was just a gray checkerboard) was amazing.

I spent the last year trying to package that feeling up and bring it to you. I hope you feel the same way when you sync your phone for the first time.

Thanks!

It would not have been possible to get to this point without the support from my family and friends, as well as the thousands and thousands of open source contributors who built the foundation that powers Mote.io.  

Standing on the shoulders of giants,
