Napster

Going for a song

Like Spotify, Napster’s mobile app also has the ability to download and save songs for offline use. This allowed me to listen to the new Blondie album on my iPad – even in the Wi-Fi dead zone in my back bedroom – and it will also avoid busting your 3G data cap when you’re out and about with your iPhone.

I know that many people still resist the idea of ‘renting’ their music in this way, but the lure of virtually unlimited music rentals is pretty tempting – and there’s a free seven-day trial available before committing yourself to a monthly subscription. ®
