Spotify Hearts iPod – Announces New Download Service
Spotify, the streaming/playlist service from the UK with over 13 million tracks available for instant listening, has announced better integration with Apple’s iPod product line.
Translating Spotify playlists into MP3’s that users can then listen to on the ubiquitous iPod has always been an exercise in patience. However, Spotify claims that’s all going to change. For the first time, users can manage any iPod classic, iPod nano and iPod shuffle in Spotify. Simply connect an iPod to your computer via your USB cable and watch it appear in the new ‘Devices’ section of your Spotify sidebar. Sync all the MP3s contained in your Spotify playlists to your iPod, and purchase the rest through the all-new Spotify download service.
Your playlists are special to you. You’ve spent untold hours putting together your own mix-tape masterpieces on your computer and want to take them with you, but without the trouble of having to buy each track separately, switching music players or breaking the bank? Then look no further.
Spotify’s new MP3 download service makes it possible to own your playlists in one easy step. By introducing a range of MP3 bundles, we’ve been able to offer you some of the most competitive prices available – from as little as 60 cents per song.
