Play counts, select by least recently played

iTunes used to be an awesome way to manage your listening to music. You could create Smart Playlists that would play on your iOS device. The awesome thing was that it could keep track of Play Date and thus give you songs you hadn't heard in time period X.   Now iTunes still works this way if you are on the Mac desktop, but all of these features are broken for correctly syncing this playlist to an iOS device.

 

Dropbox allows one to upload a bunch of MP3 files and then play them. It wouldn't take too much more coding to make some play counts, last played dates, and then Smart Playlists.  You all seem to be chomping at the bit to expand the utility of DB: music would be awesome.  Nothing on the market like it now, I can attest!

I'd be highly surprised if this was ever implemented. Being able to play files within Dropbox is intended as a preview only, and not as a full-featured media player. It would just be added bloat that the majority of the users would never use.

I use dropbox to send music and demos to other people and i would like to know when they listen/play the idea and i would like to have a play count number to see the amount of times they played it and get a notification if they download the files.

Show Play Count when you send an MP3 - WAV - AIFF - AUDIO FILE

 

This would be so helpfull for manyy Artists!

 

Thanks!!
