In the early days of the internet, I remember first coming across Napster and the epiphany I experienced on the realisation that I could find and download music to my hearts content. Of course back then, downloading a song on dial-up connections would take forever. We all know of course what happened to Napster and that seemed to be that.
My second epiphany occurred when I first came across Spotify, a completely free and legal music service that’s supported with advertisements. It’s shocking to think that the music industry who consistently failed to adapt to the way music fans want to enjoy music finally did something right. It’s as simple as searching for a song or an artist and pressing play, you can share your playlists and if you pay for the premium service you can sync your music to your portable devices.
How could they make this already brilliant application better? Well they’ve just introduced an update which allows you to import your own music collection from iTunes into Spotify and Facebook integration to share music more directly with your friends. The video below explains it far better than I can, so watch it.
UPDATE: If you don’t want to wait around for the latest update, you can be a little sneaky and download it directly from here!
