Spotify 1.0.43
Play and hear audio tracks without any fees whatsoever

iTunes has become a major player in the music industry as it made buying music easy. Instead of walking in to down and purchasing a CD, or even ordering from an online store, you simply select the album, click purchase and it’s downloaded to your computer. What possibly could be better or easier than this system?

What if we told you there was a way of listening and streaming the same tracks, for free, without moving away from your computer? If you have a fast broadband account, streaming high quality audio from the Internet is a distinct possibility. Streaming high-quality video is another matter entirely.

Spotify is the latest Internet sensation. It enables you to setup a free account, download the player to your system, then select the tracks you want to hear. You can setup a play queue with your favourite tracks, so you don’t have to individually select a track every time you want to hear some music. You can listen to online Internet-based radio, too, through your Spotify player.

As you can imagine, there’s a Premium option, too. At $9.99/£9.99 you don’t get any adverts in your Spotify player, far higher quality audio (320Kbps) and various member-only exclusives.

The downside for us is that you can’t stream your Spotify tracks to your wireless devices, which you can do through iTunes and Airport Express. If you use a commercial third-party tool such as Airfoil, you can override this. You can’t use Spotify to manage or sync audio to your iPhone, iPod or other mobile device, either.

Verdict:

The latest Internet sensation will enable you to listen and stream audio tracks to your computer without paying any fees (Premium option available)

Spotlight: Free Full Software

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
