      Guest • Aug 2015 Disagree   Agree
    • TuneIn Radio is a privacy invader. The app demands permission to read and upload your contacts. Ask why a radio app would need that. (Answer: because like for so many "free" apps, you pay with your privacy - they use your private data to make money.) They're very explicit about this in their "privacy" policy. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

about Spotify Feb 2016

Love the desktop version of Spotify. Lots of songs, playlists and very easy to discover new music and artists. I do feel that the app version needs a lot of work. I tried using on my phone (Android OS) and found it very difficult to use. No option to choose song, have to listen to whole playlist.

Note: opinion solely on free version of Spotify.

about Spotify May 2014

I tried it before but now I have reinstalled it since I wanted to listen to some artist instead of on YouTube.

Would just like to comment saying that Spotify has an excellent library full of artist.
If I want to stream something and share it with my friends, Spotify is my guy.

Though I tend to look at stuff on YT first.

I prefer to download

Sorry I like to have a .mp3 on a hard drive rather then streaming. Or watch it on YouTube since the official artist uploads it.

Also I saw somebody use it and it had an ad (die)

Spotify isn't available in Germany, but you can use "Simfy".
Its exactly the same software and offer as Spotify. Of course, there is a free version, too.
