Spotify ad-eraser appears - don't use it though...

23 August 2012

spotify-logo We love Spotify but if you’ve got the free version, listening to the same ads over and over again can be a soul-destroying experience. If only there was a way that you could mute the adverts and give you a music-only experience.

Well there isn’t. What there is though, is a piece of script that will mute the ads, but it’s only recommended for people who are in a region where they cannot pay for the ad-free pro Spotify.

Got that? Although theoretically this script will leave dead air where the ads are, you REALLY shouldn’t use it unless you’re unable to upgrade to a pro account.

Okay? Why are you winking at us like that?

    Great. I don't use spotify anywhere near enough to justify paying for it, what really pisses me off is the volume of the ads. FAR too loud compared to the tracks you play.

    or just use grooveshark with no audio adverts...

    But grooveshark has about 3 tracks on it.

    pay for it you cheapskates. it's an excellent service and worth every penny of the £120 a year. i've not bought a cd since signing up. and i've stopped illegally downloading that i never started in the first place.... what's wrong with my eye? there's a weightlifting bug in there and im trying to suffocate him, but he keeps lifting my eyelid up...

    Are the ads really there to support the software, or do they deliberately play the same ones to annoy you into buying it?

    What the fuck is "Apple script"?
  • Youngy
    Why not make it clear that AppleScript is on Mac's, so this only works on Mac's.

What do you think?
