Tricks of Downloading Spotify Songs You'll Regret to Miss

Spotify

Spotify, a commercial music streaming service that is now making waves around the world, is undoubtedly attractive to music buffs with access to fluently play millions of songs without having to purchase or download songs from Spotify and worrying about copyright issues. However, being a free user means that you should sit through banners and audio ads with limitations of five skips per hour as well as no access to offline playback.

Certainly, you can switch to a paying premium customer that is allowed to download Spotify songs for offline usage requiring no network by just pressing the "Available Offline" at the top of the playlist. But you can't take downloaded Spotify tracks outside of its client for playback in other programs as you wish though you have paid. And I'm afraid you should say goodbye to iTunes though you love it very much for you can't no longer use iTunes to sync music. Indeed, becoming a premium member is not as perfect as what you imagine, particularly after I tell you that you can get audio recorder for free to record songs audio from Spotify.
