Well, well, well, what have we here! Spotify has been making some ground in the Internet music streaming market for a little while now. A thoroughly well thought out business plan and an excellent product to boot. Premium subscription fee of £10 per month is not exactly cheap, but if you think that the cost of an album is around £15, you should be saving in the long run. Make sure you have a flat rate data tariff or you could get stung.

As a non-registered Spotify PC user, registration was a breeze, a little too easy maybe? Once I’d downloaded the application from the Android market I was done. If you have Spotify running on your computer and you also press play on your phone, the track will be instantly paused on your computer. This is to stop you using the same account in more than one location at the same time and to you Mr Spotty Man I say, furry muff! The only downside so far is that if you drop from the 3G network to 2G, Spotify really doesn’t like it and stops until you are back on 3G again.

If you have an Android phone, I say do it, do it now! And if you have an iPhone, I say get back to your marketing. No really someone needs your thought leadership somewhere…
