Title: App Transfers iTunes Songs to Spotify in Seconds
Post by: humblelad on October 22, 2012, 11:20:58 PM
Many of us listen to music on our iPhones everyday. To do so, we often switch between the Music app, for music from our iTunes libraries, and the Spotify app. This back and forth can get annoying. Luckily, M2S for Spotify has come to the rescue. With the app, users can send their songs to Spotify right from the iOS device. Best of all, the Spotify music library is updated in real time.

Created by Neuron Industries, the $0.99 M2S for Spotify app was initially rejected by Apple. In fact, according to the appís creators, the Cupertino giant rejected it eight times.

To understand what M2S for Spotify does, itís important to first see what it doesnít do. For one, your music files arenít actually pushed to the Spotify app. Instead, the app sends metadata to Spotify. In other words, your music is matched to Spotifyís database and becomes streamable anywhere that the service is available. Additionally, you must be a Spotify Premium subscriber. This package is $9.99 per month.

The reason to love M2S for Spotify is how easy it works. The app can transfer a song list in seconds by sending up to 10 song names per second.

Plus, the app is iTunes Match compatible. This means that a userís entire music library or playlist does not need to be physically synced to an actual iOS device. If a user is subscribed to iTunes Match, M2S can access their iTunes in the cloud and send it directly to their Spotify Premium account.

Finally, you may transfer up to 5,000 song names into a Spotify playlist.

Say you love The Beatles, but canít access their music in Spotify. You can listen to the bandís album Abbey Road inside the Spotify app on your iPhone using M2S. To do so, click on the icon within the M2S app, activating Appleís Music app. Then select Albums, and then Abbey Road. From here, select the entire album or certain songs for use through Spotify then hit Done. Finally, you can add the selected songs to an existing Spotify playlist, or create a new one. Within seconds, Abbey Road is listed as a playlist in your Spotify account.
