Yeah... idk i will stick with Tune in radio or Sound cloud. 10$ was a bit high although it did allow you to listen to any song you wanted.

Tune In is amazing for local radio and just over the air radio period. I dont think you can really compare Tune In to Spotify. Sound Cloud....maybe. You can get full albums by the artists on Spotify

This is an amazing update. I've been using it today and it works very well. As long as your playlist on Spotify is over 20 songs then it'll shuffle the playlist (although it will add in a random song every once in a while). If there's only one song then it'll throw in random but relevant songs. It works just like the desktop version on my iPad.

I rather pay the 10 and get full access but to each their own. Spotify is a great service and hope it brings them more cash flow.

lol@piratebay..

I know Spotify does with a catch. You have to take offline off every so often. I think its a 30 day max, then you have to stream and start the 30 day limit again. Not really sure.

Tune In...you can record songs playing over the air. I never tried it..I would record the morning and evening talk shows mostly.

Deacon - You can with Google Play music as long as you upload from your own collection. To listen to something you haven't loaded yourself offline or online you have to pay for the subscription.
