The Spotify mobile app is here! Let there be music!
The world has spun slightly off its axis this morning as the Spotify mobile phone app has appeared, sitting there begging for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android platform users to download it for free and access a portable world of six million tracks.
Spotify’s head honcho Daniel Ek has told Sky News how it works, saying: "For example, you can see all tracks by Madonna, which albums she has, which artists match her. You can press any track and it starts playing instantly. You also have playlists, which can be stored on your phone, so they also work on the Tube or anywhere that you can't get reception."
Up to 3,333 tracks can be stored for offline play and playlists can be updated through your Spotify account on your computer and then transferred across to your phone at your leisure.
The major snag is that the service is only available to Spotify premium subscribers who pay a tenner a month, but is that really so bad when you look at the range of music you get to choose from?
We’re off to fire it up now. Breakfast, getting dressed and doing toilets can all wait on this day of all days…
[EDIT] To celebrate, we've created a Spotify playlist for you lot to stick some of your favourite songs on. Go on, let us into your souls and give us the tunes that make your lives worth living.
