Spotify has been around for a good year and hasn't changed much; it's still one of our favorite applications for music on demand and music library management. Taking cues from iTunes, Spotify integrates your existing music libraries with its own giant catalog of songs from artists all over the world. Where it trumps iTunes is that all the music is pretty much available to stream for free, with offline functionality for an addition 10 bucks a month. In the in-app advertisements, claims like "Piracy is overrated" are quite justified; Spotify is seriously one of the most easiest ways to grab just about any song you can think of, and stellar for discovering new music.

And while we've already covered the highlights of the layout and the general functions of the service, Spotify has since then been pushing users to take advantage of its own app catalog to further enhance the playlist creation experience.

Apps are available from bigger names and sites like Billboard charts and well-known musicians, as well as discovery brands like Hype Machine help users discover new music from just about any genre. And while users can already explore curated lists from their synced friends via Facebook, Spotify apps are in some sense the company's response to address the need for more curated lists.

It's not surprising that the actual number of apps in the catalog is rather small, but then again there's really only so much you can do with music playlists. From our experience, most of the apps are centered around music discovery and suggestion, or syncing with well-known discovery sites like Hype Machine. They are interesting for a bit but few apps really add any new legitimate features or functions to the music listening experience, except just visual reorientations of artist spotlights. My personal favorite was simply the TuneWiki lyrics plugin; it basically turned my Spotify app into a makeshift karaoke so I can secretly sing and rap to myself at work. Other apps that were also interesting included Fuse, an app that highlights music of artists who make headlines or appear on the news.

Your favorited apps will follow you whenever you log onto Spotify, no matter what machine you're on.

If you're looking for a free, legal way to get all your favorite songs on your computer, stop living under a rock and download this now.

"I love this app for any mood I am in!"

November 04, 2014  |  By pdumou6293

 |  Version: Spotify 0.9.14.13

Pros

It never has glitches, they update regularly, I can find almost all of the music I am looking for, an if I don't there is something else to fit the bill. I have been using spotify for a year and will not use anything else...Bye Bye Pandora! Happiest I have been in a long time, and now I am a premium member (for past 4 months) and extremely happy with that choice as well. I gotta go, going to listen to my workout folder now.

Cons

when you make a folder, sometimes the Radio station veers away from the music you are wanting it to find or play, the algorithm seems a little loose. but, I will say my folders/playlists can be a bit eclectic, so this may be the reason. (that is why rating is 4.5 stars)

Summary

Download free version, Use it, Love it...later on pay for premium and love it even more. Personally, I wouldn't want to live without it. And feel free to follow me if you join.
