App Review: Spotify

My Samsung Galaxy (Vibrant and now S3) is an extension of me. When I first got it a few years ago I was really skeptical that it would be worthwhile to have a smartphone. But from the day that I got it I was constantly finding a new use for it. I can’t possibly imagine life without it anymore.

So modeling after The Happiness Project blog I’m making Tuesdays my app review day. I had over 100 apps on my old Vibrant and now I’m a little more selective with the S3 but I’ll just keep at it until I run out of apps to review. Maybe if I get close you’ll leave some ideas on apps I should review.

Alright so the app that I’m currently raving about is Spotify.

Spotify can be used on a variety of platforms like your computer (PC or Mac) or smart phone (iAnything or Android).
Regardless of what device you use you have to download the Spotify app.

I love Spotify because it’s cost-effective, has nearly everything I’d want to listen to, and has an offline option.

I can listen to music offline if I pay $9.99/mo for Spotify Premium.  If I buy music outright I might pay about $1/song.  So if I can find at least 10 new songs per month then it makes sense.  So far I’ve used Spotify to explore new artists and new albums.  Usually music is available on Spotify when the album is released to the public.

Even if you don’t want to pay for Spotify Premium, just try out the basic Spotify.  I have been using Spotify (no premium) for almost a year now.  I only switched to premium because they launched their Android mobile app and now it makes perfect sense to have premium so that I don’t have to worry about needing to stream music.  If there’s a song you hear on the radio that you just can’t get enough of, Spotify is your answer.  Check it out and you won’t be disappointed.
