Everyone loves Spotify Wrapped and all the intriguing insights it brings, but it only happens once a year. What if you want to keep track of your Spotify stats all year long on one of the best iPhones?

Fortunately, I’ve found a way to do just that using a third-party app called OK, it’s not quite the same as Spotify Wrapped – there are no Instagram-style stories backed by your favorite tunes – but it’s a great way to dive into the data if you want to know how many hours you’ve spent indulging your secret love of lo-fi indie pirate metal. is free to get started and lets you see your top 50 tracks and artists at a glance. Subscribe to its Plus tier ($6 for a lifetime membership on the official website) and you unlock a whole lot more. That includes much deeper info on your top tracks, artists, and albums, as well as insights into the way you listen. As well as that, the paid-for version banishes the ads for good.

There’s another aspect that data nerds will love: your listening history. You need to import this (see the steps below), and that means you might have to wait a few weeks for Spotify or Apple to gather the required data, but it opens up a whole new world of musical insights. You’ll also need the paid version of for this, but a lifetime membership is affordable if you get it directly from the app’s website (it’s cheaper than paying on the App Store).

Once your listening history is happily deposited into, you can learn far more about your listening habits than you thought possible. The app will show you your total minutes listened, how many artists you’ve given a spin, how many albums you’ve explored over the past month, and a lot more.

It also rustles up a bunch of interesting visuals to help you easily digest your stats, including streaming charts and “listening clocks” that show you what time of day you spend the most time listening. It’s all absolutely fascinating.

Often, the results can be surprising. I had no idea that 73% of my top tracks are “energetic” but only a mere 5% are “speechful,” for example. If you enjoy data like this and all the associated insights you can glean, you’re going to love this app.
