SpotSearch: Lyric-based Search for Spotify Mobile

SpotSearch: Lyric-based Search for Spotify Mobile

Tweet SpotSearch is an app for Spotify Mobile (iPhone and Android) that finds a song on Spotify based on some lyrics you enter. In a way it’s similar to Shazam, but instead of playing it a sample of music you type in some words from the song instead. Maybe you have a tune in your head and you can’t remember what it’s called or who it’s by. If you know a line from the lyrics, use SpotSearch to find and play the song in Spotify. Using [...]
Spotify Mobile Faceoff: iPhone vs. Android

Spotify Mobile Faceoff: iPhone vs. Android

Tweet Spotify Mobile on iPhone and Android are both reasonably mature apps now, having been launched simultaneously back in September 2009. At the time, the Android version had a slight edge in terms of features, with its unique ability to Sync Over 3G, a What’s New area, and most crucially the ability to play in the background. But the iPhone version seemed to take priority at Spotify and within a few months it had caught up then taken [...]

Spotify Says Hello to the Walkman

Tweet 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

Tweet 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 via WiFi. So to complement Paul’s article, [...]

Spotify’s Friends & Enemies (UPDATED)

Tweet They love me, they love me not… here’s a graphic showing Spotify’s friends and partners (on the left) versus their “enemies” and competitors (on the right).
