Spotify for iPhone hits the US App Store

Spotify for iPhone has finally hit the US App Store.

Take your existing Spotify playlists with you on the go - listen to them during your commute, in the gym or on a flight. With ‘Offline mode’ you can listen even when no connection is available. Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone to merge your catalogue with ours, no cables required! Download and get started directly from your mobile.

  • Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone
  • Create and sync playlists
  • Receive music from friends via the inbox
  • Star your favourite tracks
  • Scrobble tracks to Last.fm
  • Access to over 13 million tracks from our catalogue
  • Offline playlists – listen to music with no mobile connection and avoid using your data allowance

Personally, I'll be sticking with iTunes and iCloud for my music streaming needs, but I'm old school and actually enjoy listening to my local radio. However, Spotify is a great alternative to iTunes and offers features that Apple does not. Will you be jumping ship?

Spotify is available for Free for iPhone and requires a free Spotify account. There are also premium and unlimited accounts available starting at $4.99 per month.

Moe NYC says:

I jumped ship. Love Spotify. I paid the $9.99 to use the offline listening since I spend 1.5 hrs in the subway each day in NYC. I like it so far.

Kingdavidfive says:

So how do you get an invite or do you have to pay for the services

lgreenberg says:

You need an invite for the free plan. You can simply sign up for one of the two paid ones now.

lgreenberg says:

"I’ll be sticking with iTunes and iCloud for my music streaming needs" - Leanna, I didn't think "streaming" was part of iCloud's features. Am I wrong?

Chris says:

Yep. iTunes does not offer streaming.

rajkumr says:

I think you need the premium plan @ USD 9.99 for mobile access

lgreenberg says:

Yeah, that's right. The only thing that's free is the desktop version with ads. Desktop without ads is $4.99 and Desktop without ads & mobile access is $9.99.
I wish they'd offer a choice of desktop or mobile for $4.99 instead. I'd rather just have it on my phone not the desktop.

Nicholas Lancaster says:

How does this compare to Slacker radio?

stueysays says:

thelinu5 says:

I still got invites to share. Give me your email here and I'll send one right over.

lgreenberg says:

Yeah that makes sense - I just don't know if it's fair to call that "streaming." Where as with Spotify you can put together an entire playlist before hand and play it without having to download anything.

lgreenberg says:

Yep. But to hear the on your phone you need the premium plan.

thelinu5 says:

I got 15 invites to give away. Drop an email address here or contact me on twitter @thelinu5

JustHadToReply says:

I use both. Is it really obligatory to stop using iTunes if I use Spotify? I don't understand this jumping the ship thing...

Lvrxdealer says:

Linu5 my email address is Lvrxdealer at gmail
