The coolest subscription-based music streaming service which turns your phone into a melody machine
by on April 14, 2010
If there is one thing which the iPhone has over an Android handset, it is iTunes. The link between iPhones and Jobs’ music service is one that Google-heads only dreamed of. Until now.
Spotify is the next best thing for those looking for a music fix. To run the app on your Android phone you need to subscribe. You will also need to make sure your phone contract allows a lot of web use as you will be streaming music to the handset. This is okay if you are using WiFi, but on the go it will be 3G and this could get pricey.
Layout-wise, those familiar with the desktop version will feel right at home. There are nice additions like the What’s New tab and unlike the iPhone version it can run in the background while you still enjoy games or update your update your facebook status.
The real drawback is if you are using an Android handset without a 3.5mm jack. This is a bugbear as the supplied headphones aren’t great. If you have a Hero though, then Spotify on Android is for you.
