Spotify goes for the iPod users

Offering the streaming music service to the iPhone and Android users is not enough for Spotify. They want more and they go for more. The company’s latest offering targets iPod users, allowing them to download MP3 playlists to their beloved media players. All iPod models are supported, including classic, Nano and even Shuffle, and accessible from the new “Devices” section.

But that’s not all, those of you with the Spotify app running on the iPhone or some Android-based device can now sync playlists wirelessly without a premium subscription.

According to the music company’s CEO Daniel Ek, “Spotify really is the only music player you’ll ever need.” No need to switch between music players and create playlists more than once – they [playlists] can now work with multiple devices, making your favorite tunes easy to carry around.

Presuming you’re not a premium subscriber, you can still buy songs from Spotify: 9.99 EUR for 10 tracks, 12.99 EUR for 15, 30 EUR for 40 and 60 EUR for 100 tracks.
