Spotify Vs iTunes



I've had Spotify installed ever since Gail Porter reviewed it on the Gadget Show in April. I've used it increasingly since then until right now when I realised I've not used iTunes (in which I have a lot of purchased music) for weeks! Over the past few years I've scrobbled all the music I've played in iTunes and on my iPod to last.fm and now this suggesting new music for me to listen to in Spotify!! I'm loving the combination of Spotify and Last.fm.

I've not used my iPod since my holidays as in the UK I listen to Spotify over a 3G connection on my Dell mini 9 netbook as I'm usually on the train or something!

I'm now considering the monthly subscription to Spotify which gives better quality music and no adverts. Though at £9.99 it is a hard sell over the free version - perhaps at £5 a month I'd jump.

My iTunes collection is looking rather lonely now...

Yeah but have you tried Grooveshark? If you've got your laptop up and running log into icloud.com and listen to Grooveshark for free. No audioads!

Grooveshark (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grooveshark) sounds suspiciously like a platform to share unlicensed material. Spotify is fully licensed and therefore legal in the UK.

I am sure that Spotify will beat iTunes in future.
