Spotio Brings Rdio-Style Skin to Spotify on Mac

Mac: Spotify’s darker design is great, but not for everyone. If you’re nostalgic for the light theme of the now defunct Rdio, Spotio is a clever little hack that will change Spotify’s skin to give it a similar look.

Spotio essentially records your existing file. To install Spotio, download the app from designer Devin Halladei’s site, close the existing version of Spotify, then open the new version ( you need to override Gatekeeper to do this ). If you like the new design, please copy the Spotio file to your Applications folder to replace the official version of Spotify. It’s hard to say how long Spotio will last, or what exactly will happen when Spotify inevitably updates its app. That said, Spotio is a good proof of concept and a temporary respite from Spotify’s dark design.
