    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone could help me out.

    I'm thinking about moving from itunes to Spotify, but I'm wondering what will happen to my itunes library? Presumably the songs are all on my computer and I can simply move them over?

    Just wondering if anyone had done the switch and could help me here Thanks. Heard there's a free version of Spotify, which would be good for me to try.

    Post any other reasons why you like it over itunes; I'm thinking about changing because it seems cheaper. Ta!

    Yeah, you can easily include your iTunes library in Spotify, it's under the 'Settings' tab, but is generally included as default!

    You're right, I downloaded Spotify, went to 'Library' and all the songs I got from itunes were already there...

    Looks nifty so far, cheers mate.

    Could someone just clarify to me how Spotify works?

    I know you pay a monthly subscription instead of paying for individual songs, but surely there must be a monthly limit on the amount of songs or something?

    Thanks if anyone can answer, but I'll check on google

    Spotify is a streaming service, so you don't actually own or download any songs. You pay a fee that gives you unlimited, ad-free listening (£5 a month) as well as a lot of extra features (£10 a month premium service).

    Ahhh right, thanks a lot

    So for 10 pounds a month (roughly) I can just easily browse music and listen to it. Are people basically paying for the convenience? I have the free version and can play music, so why are people paying? Is it just to get rid of the adds and use the apps etc etc?

    And why does it have a downloads tab that says 'music you buy from Spotify...'? Sorry for all the questions
