Anyone who knows me knows that I am a massive fan of Spotify. There is a simple reason for this, I like to be able to take my music collection everywhere I go and with Spotify I can! With the Windows desktop application for my main computers and laptops, and the BlackBerry mobile client for when I’m out and about. Offline playlists too that are downloaded so that I can listen even without an internet connection.
The social features too are really useful. If I’m in the house and hear a song I like coming from someone else’s computing running Spotify, I just ask them to send me the track and they can do it in 2 mouse clicks!
The selection of music is massive, sure there are some bands that aren’t on it, but that’s not Spotify’s fault. Some artists appear to choose not to have their music available for streaming. As for sound quality, I’m yet to find a higher quality streaming service.
The other thing that is great about Spotify is the online community. Its mainly a community support forum, but there is much more to it. The staff are so nice and I have met a lot of very intelligent people who are also Senior members like myself. There is also a rewards program, so giving lots of help to other members brings its own benefits! The community also regularly run competitions. Here is my most recent entry in a photo contest showing that Wales loves Spotify!
