Best apps…A Spotify primer

An impressive number of of artists and songs are available on Spotify.

What it is. “There’s no reason to be allergic to the hype”: Spotify, a music-streaming service that had its U.S. launch last summer, offers a free, legal way to hear nearly “every song you’d want to hear and then some.” And it makes sharing music easy. To get started, go to Spotify.com and download the app. There’s no charge for the version with ads or a $5 monthly fee to block ads. 

The hook. You’ll be impressed by the number of artists and songs available, but “the core of the Spotify experience” is its way with playlists. More than 500 million user-curated playlists are available, and you can create your own and share them through Facebook and similar sites.

Extras. Among the many “awesome” apps that augment the Spotify experience is TuneWiki, which displays the lyrics to every song you listen to.
