  • Declare independence from iTunes with Spotify premium

    Posted July 7, 2012 - 7:35 am

    Sick of your current music-management software? Invest in a Spotify membership and declare independence from iTunes, Google Music, or any other music app you're fed up with. iTunes in particular is becoming pretty bloated, especially for Windows users--but I've barely seen it over the past few months thanks to Spotify and the new ability to upgrade my iOS software on my iPhone itself.
