Unlimited Music Downloads

Music is really important and essential part in our day to day lives, as we listen to it daily in some form or the other. These days downloading music is really simple and quick process. However unlimited downloads is really an issue here as most of the music streaming apps doesn’t allow its users to download unlimited songs for free.

Spotify

Founded in 2006, Spotify is a European American media-services provider. It has over 248 million active users with 131 million paying subscribers. Spotify is a really good music streaming app that let you choose your favorite genre and recommend you latest music tracks as well. However, this app stopped its download feature in 2013 and the option to download music was region specific.

As for artists this app pays royalties based on the number of artist streams in proportion of total songs streamed. This app also faced criticism from famous artists like Taylor swift and Thom Yorke, who argued that it doesn’t compensate musicians fairly.

This raises the issue why it is not possible to download unlimited music everywhere. Only the paying members gets this benefit while those are not paying or couldn’t pay for the service have to look for some other way to download music.

This is where apps like soundcloud comes to play that allows its user download and upload music for free. Although you can upgrade to premium services for better upload and streaming qualities.

Soundcloud

However, some users disable the download function to their music files which is not that big of a problem. As there are several web apps that can convert soundcloud to mp3. These are also free to use as well, you are just required to copy the URL of the audio file that you want to download and paste it on the designated box, and you are ready to go.
