    Well Spotify is by fay more complete in terms of catalogue music that Grooveshark and I been using it more than 1 year (UK, Spain and now US). There are differences if you register your account in the UK or US the easy example is if you seach for David Gilmour in the US you got all the music he made but not even one disc in the UK. Also if you upgrade for the Premium Service make sure you check in the Spotify app or Program (PC) the "High Fidelity Streaming" for better sound (320kpbs, the free service has 128 kpbs).

    No!! That's a kid's comparison.
    I have used all the apps and my iTune itself has 2.8 TB of music but nothing compares to spotify.
    I mean it.
    Use it for few weeks n see if you can let it go.
    I can't .......
    I signed up for free then unlimited but premium is the way to go.
    Hey 9.99 is not much for the stuff we get with premium.
    I have searched and listen to those songs, I could never imagine I will find it in a app.
    Free/ unlimited doesn't attract me, because still I have to sync my iPhone, so its like iTune but I don't own those songs.
    It does happen to me that all of sudden I remember a song, which I really wanna listen at that moment but I can't because I don't have in my iPod or in my spotify free/UL.
    And by the time I get back home.
    The charm is gone.
    But with premium I have every song with me.
    And I am lucky to have my grand fathered unlimited data plan.
    This is my point of view, but I will never dare to compare spotify with any other apps.
    They deserve all the credit and my $9.99 every month.
    Sounds like a advert to me...

    It does sound like an advert, but it's all true. My buddy told me that he got Spotify, and I kept telling him I was more interested in Pandora One just because it would feed me bands maybe I've never heard of, and Spotify doesn't do that. But I still have the Pandora app (and hack) on my phone, so the only thing I don't get with Pandora is the higher quality audio.

    I ended up getting Spotify Free, got the app on my phone and realized I couldn't stream from it, which I really wanted. So I bought into it and got a Premium account thinking, "Yeah, I'll give this a try for a month and see how much I don't use it." Turns out in the couple days that I've had it I've used it a lot really. I use it at the gym mostly but I'll pick up an aux cable for my car and use it even more.

    It's definitely not for everyone, and may not be for me after this first month. But I'm giving it a try, so far I'm impressed with it.

    Thanks. 'Cept I'm not sure what you mean by the, "Free let's you stream online from your computer" part. Doesn't seem like I can stream a damn thing from the computer with this free service.

    All it seems I can do is directly transfer music to my phone (like iTunes) and take a look at their catalog (none of which i can listen to, unless paid).

    Thanks again.

    Does anyone know ho many devices, at the same time, can be online with a single account? In other words, can two devices, under the same account, be playing at the same time?

    Update: Spotify gives Premium (maybe the same for Unlimited) subscribers 4 invites. I've used mine up, so if you got one of mine, spread the love to the others here.

    Just an FYI, I'm a premium member and when I used up my initial 4 invites I sent support an email requesting more invites and they dropped 10 more invites into my account.
