Spotify was one of the first sustainable on-demand music streaming services. Spotify currently supports iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and streaming on the web. It plays host to over 25 million tracks and offers more exclusive content and deals than any other on demand streaming service currently available for iOS. With curated playlists, custom stations, offline listening, and more, Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services in the world. The Spotify service is currently available in more than 50 countries worldwide.
The Spotify app for iPhone recently got a facelift to reflect a more clean and iOS 7 like design. One of the most attractive features of Spotify is that it gives free listeners a few more options than many other services do. For starters, you aren't just limited to random stations. iPad owners can play any song, anytime for free. iPhone users can play any artist, album, or playlist on shuffle at any time without ponying up any cash. Premium subscriptions for Spotify are $9.99 and remove all ads. All premium subscribers get offline listening and much higher audio quality, up to 320 kbps. If you're a student you can score a 50% discount on the Spotify service as well.
When choosing a music streaming service, most folks that choose Spotify do so because of the vast library it offers in combination with exclusive deals it has with many artists. Before committing to any service, we always recommend taking advantage of any free trials a service may offer and making sure the artists you like are available. Just like Rdio and Beats Music, Spotify also offers a no commitment trial so you can check out all the benefits a premium membership has to offer before committing to a subscription.
