"Amazing free software, you gotta try this out"

August 03, 2009  |  By Jack-Bxp

 |  Version: Spotify 0.3.12

Pros

Streams music to you PC without any noticeable buffering, it's like no streaming i've ever seen before - it seems instant. Make playlists. Share playlists. Large database of music. Very small memory usage. High quality music. It's free.

Cons

It doesn't have a complete music database, lots of classics i can't find - but i searched a lot just to test it out. The free version comes with add banners, also after you play a few songs, you will be interrupted by a 20 second audio advert.

Summary

I have a large music collection already, but there is always more music to find - and Spotify is great for me in this sense. Type an artist or song title in the search box and it will give you a list of all the songs either by that artist, or all similar songs with that name. Has detailed info on the artists, also can recommend similar songs, but it's not yet perfect at this. Gives you the option to buy the songs you like, if you want to pay. I just like to find new songs, then download them using a P2P program like Limewire. The music is great quality and it's easy to spend a long time on Spotify, i like it a lot. I noticed that by pausing a song at the end, then selecting a new one, it's possible to avoid the audio adverts. The adverts are really not that much of a problem though, when considering what a great program Spotify is. You can always go premium and pay, then there will be no adverts, i tried this and found that after purchasing the premium version - it's best to close the program and restart, to get the version with no advertising. I think though, once my premium month is over, i will just use the free version - as the adverts are not a big issue. I am really amazed that Spotify is free and i'm sure the music database will continue to grow. It stores a cache on your PC to speed up the music transfers, acting like a P2P program, don't forget to set a limit - the default is 10% of your free space, i set mine to just 2GB. It's the best free program i've found for a long time, i recommend trying it out.

"Not available in the USA"

May 12, 2009  |  By amyiw

 |  Version: Spotify 0.3.12

Pros

Don't know because I cannot use it

Cons

Link on cNet for me is a dead link. Going directly to the website, it tells me that it is not currently available in the US. Maybe there is some other way to download it?

Summary

These are the supported countries at this time according to their website, May 2009, Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France and Spain. They stream in Ogg Vorbis and it sound as it would be great but currently unusable for the USA.

 |  Version: Spotify 0.3.12

Pros

Huge library of songs, growing all the time.
Instant playback (no buffering time).
Unlimited plays of songs.
Can make handy playlists and then you can send the code to someone else and they can play your playlists.
High quality

Cons

Audio ads every now and then (can be eliminated with a subscription but they aren't that bad. The ads are generally either for music or good causes).

GET THIS NOW!!!!
I have no idea why the world doesn't know about Spotify. ALL of my friends at university use it almost daily.
