With “smart” mobile phones getting more and more popular in the late 2000s it was clear that the the journey of the Llama will continue there. In 2010, when Android was still on Version 2 “Eclair” we started an effort to bring the media player that we all love to Android and released the first version by the end of that year. Soon it entered the Top10 Android App Charts in the Play Store
Besides being part of the digital music revolution at Winamp I joined a Munich-based startup called Songpier as lead developer. Songpier was a musician promotion platform that turned songs into an app for all primary platforms. Fans had free access to selected songs of an artist and were able to explore news buzz or shop tickets and merchandise.
Back in 2009 I’ve contributed in a competition for designing the cover art of an EP for the norwegian band Theatre of Tragedy. I’ve adapted an image of a forest in my hometown that had been destroyed by bark beetle to match their current album’s fiery colorization.
During my last year at high school I was hired1 by AOL (the former owner of Winamp) to revamp the whole Winamp user interface and combine separate windows (player, equalizer, playlist, …) into a single tabbed user interface. At that time Winamp was one of the most popular media players for Windows—with more that 80+ million unique users per month. And yes, you once had audio files on your physical hard drive

Keeping things organized is key to master tasks at work and at home. In digital life you can choose between a plethora of apps and services that want to support you at staying organized. I’ve iterated through a few of these as well—especially after the shutdown of Google Inbox and my Trello “ToDo” board becoming not manageable anymore. Soon I have found myself very comfortable with Microsoft To-Do 1, a lightweight task management solution that focuses on getting stuff done today. You basically fill an one day micro-iteration from one ore more of your backlogs (=lists).
Microsoft To-Do is the successor of Wunderlist after its Microsoft acquisition ↩
