App Review: ShareMyPlaylists on Android

App Review: ShareMyPlaylists on Android

ShareMyPlaylists.com is the top Spotify playlist-sharing site. With close to 45 thousand playlists, no other playlist sharing site comes close in terms of catalog or features. SMP has just launched a free mobile app on two new platforms: the iPhone version has been out for a while now, but this week saw their arrival on both iPad and Android. TechCrunch have covered the iPad version, so here’s a look at ShareMyPlaylists on Android. ShareMyPlaylists [...]
Spotify Says Hello to the Walkman

Spotify Says Hello to the Walkman

Spotify’s new feature announcement is great news for its freemium users, casual listeners and iPod owners. If you’re one of these: rejoice! You can now benefit from cheaper-than-iTunes MP3 purchases, wireless syncing and Spotify-lite on your mobile. But for Premium users like myself there’s not too much here to get excited about. When I signed up back in ’09 for Spotify’s cloud service in the sky, I shifted [...]
How To Sync Your Local Music With Spotify Mobile

How To Sync Your Local Music With Spotify Mobile

CAUTION – THIS PAGE IS PROBABLY NOW OUT-OF-DATE Paul Brown recently wrote a great article on Why Spotify is an iTunes-killer worth paying for. In it, he mentions that you can sync your local music with Spotify on your mobile. This feature’s been around in Spotify for a while now but it seems that not everyone was aware of it. Instead of having to use cables or manually copy files to your phone, Spotify can sync them for you [...]
The Pansentient League’s Guide to the Galaxy Tab

The Pansentient League’s Guide to the Galaxy Tab

I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab at the weekend and have now had a couple of days playing around with it. I wanted a tablet mostly to replace my Eee PC netbook, which I’d use for browsing and tweeting while watching TV or lounging about in bed. I bought an unlocked Galaxy Tab for £499 from my local Phones 4U store. It doesn’t need a SIM card so I didn’t have to take out any kind of contract: this makes it essentially a wi-fi [...]
Placeshifting Your Music to Android Smartphones

Placeshifting Your Music to Android Smartphones

Although Spotify has over 10 million songs, there are sometimes bands I’d like to listen who aren’t on there yet: The Beatles, Rammstein, Arcade Fire, Oasis and some of these bands too. Spotify also lacks audiobooks and audio-drama (such as the excellent Big Finish Doctor Who range), so there are occasions when you’re forced to listen to those things your grandparents talk about: MP3 files. Since I listen to music on my [...]
Hey Spotify! Voice Commands on Android

Hey Spotify! Voice Commands on Android

Here’s a quick video demonstrating Spotify’s voice commands. The search works perfectly, but Spotify is supposed to be launchable using voice commands too but I can’t get it to work. Sorry about the focus and glare in this clip, it’s my first attempt at a video :p
Spotify + Chrome = Awesome Launcher for Android!

Spotify + Chrome = Awesome Launcher for Android!

Here’s a short video demonstrating how to select a band name from a webpage on your PC then launch some tunes on Spotify for Android. I use this at work where I can’t run Spotify on the desktop, but can listen to it on my Android smartphone instead. The video shows the Google Chrome web browser, the Spotify Chome extension, and the Google Chrome to Phone extension.    
A Delicious Way to Manage Spotify Playlists

A Delicious Way to Manage Spotify Playlists

CAUTION – THIS PAGE IS PROBABLY NOW OUT-OF-DATE Managing Spotify playlists has always been tricky whenever you have more than a few dozen playlists to keep track of: you soon end up with a big long list of albums and playlists that’s difficult to search through. As a workaround, I  used the Firefox Bookmark Manager to store my “overspill” of playlists (where a playlist is usually an album or custom list of songs). I [...]

Top 10 Essential Android Apps

It’s been a while since we posted an Android update, so here’s what I reckon are the current Top 10 Essential Android Apps. Everyone will have their own personal favourites, but these ten apps are what I recommend any new Android user should check out first.
Android Apps for Spotify

Android Apps for Spotify

Android smartphones were made for music: with their fully-enabled multitasking feature, expandable memories and unrestricted choice, an Android phone makes iPods and mp3 players obsolete. Factor in Spotify and you have access to million upon millions of high-quality streaming music tracks. As well as the official Spotify Mobile app, an increasing number of Spotify-related apps have appeared for Android. Here’s a look at what’s [...]
