STAMP has been founded by Bartosz Hernas, Mike Hernas and Chris Kaczor in one night (really).
After Apple released Apple Music, we wanted to switch from Spotify and we realised that there is no way to transfer playlists over.
We have been waiting few days for someone else to come up with anything and we realised that if you cannot count on others, you can always count on yourself.
We've built tiny script, that was clicking through iTunes to add all our Spotify playlists and we made this script public. Lacking domain and wanting to have short URL and not "SpotifyToAppleMusic.hern.as" we used an abbreviation, which came out as s.t.a.m.
We've added p. (meaning "parser") and ended app with s.t.a.m.p.
It sounded good enough and stayed with us till this day.
Obviously we support many more services now and we got a cool sounding domain, but we kept the name due
- not having better ideas
- logos, descriptions, app names used STAMP everywhere, soo.....
Trivia? Mike & Bart are twin brothers. Christoph's last name means drake in Polish 😜.
We are currently working from Berlin area, although none of us can speak German 😞.
Have an idea for STAMP?
Want to meet for a beer in Berlin?
