    IMPORTANT: Make sure you allow opening applications from anywhere in your Mac's Security preferences, otherwise this app will not work.

    This is a really, really bad advice. You can get the same result on an app basis by right clicking on the .app icon and click Open; the OS will ask you if you want to trust the app and will sign it for you.

      It's really not bad advice, this is a common setting that most designers and developers have enabled. Bad advice would be to disable System Integrity Protection, but I'm not asking for people to do that. macOS sandboxing would prevent any damage done by unidentified apps, anyways, and the Spotio target audience is designers and developers (the only people who used Rdio), so they know how to handle themselves.

      I do agree that I need a better workaround than asking everyone to enable this setting in their preferences, but allowing apps from anywhere is a perfectly fine thing to do. No harm will be done to any Spotio user through enabling that setting.
