iTunes Versus Spotify

The Spotify download page is where you can get a free version of the web’s most popular music player. Spotify has taken the world by storm since launching in the US in 2012. The Spotify download is far superior to Pandora because you can choose the music you want to hear. Pandora guesses what type of music you like and serves up various artists that meet that criteria. Spotify lets you choose which artist, album or song you want to hear.

Similar to Pandora the Spotify download is free and can be installed on your desktop or laptop computer. Listening to music on your desktop is free for Spotify users. You can search by artist, song, album or playlist and create custom playlists based on your tastes. Pandora allows you to search by artist or song, but then serves up their own mix of music that matches your selection. So the Spotify download is superior in that the user has much more control over the experience.

As with most music people want to take it with them. This means having access to your music from your smartphone, iPod or iPad. Spotify has an excellent mobile app that you can download for free. However, in order to enjoy the same features from the desktop, you must agree to a $9.99/month fee. This is a great value because you have the ability to listen to any song when you want to without buying it.

In order to enjoy Spotify for free you do have to endure advertising which is not terribly disruptive and is a small price to pay for the convenience of listening to your music on demand.
