If you want to learn everything there is to know about Receptify and how to use it, then this article will help you with every little detail.

What is Receptify?

Receptify Herokuapp is a web app that will allow you to know which are your favorite songs, artists, genres, and more on Spotify, Apple Music, and Last.fm.  This app will scan the playlist history of a user, and it can also range from a month, to six months up to all-time history. After it scans the user’s activity on the app, it will create a list of your favorite music.

However, the thing that makes it fun is the style in which this list is presented, which is in the form of a sales receipt. This might seem like a small detail but it’s actually quite fun and original to do this and it makes for a great way to share your favorite music with others.

This web app was made by Michelle Liu and is hosted by Herokuapp. It’s also worth noting that this app is very easy to use on your phone and you can easily use it with Apple, Last Fm, and Spotify.
