Spotify: Listen to new music, podcasts, and songs review
Spotify is a music streaming app. It is available for free, but offers a paid subscription to unlock new features and remove some limitations of the free edition. The app is available on iOS, Android, Windows, macOS, and many other platforms.
Design, interface & usability: Portable Music Player
The design of the app is great, both visually and functionally. It makes your phone look like a portable music player with its buttons and other interface elements. The backgrounds are usually dark, making it pleasant to look at the app and setting the right mood for music.
It is also very user-friendly as controlling the player is performed with very illustrative buttons and selecting a track from the library is easy. Each track or album is presented with a cover art, which helps to save time searching for something specific.
Features: Listen to Everything the Way You Want
Spotify’s interface is not the only benefit of the app. It also has a set of amazing features, bringing the user experience to the whole other level. First of all, you can download music and listen to it offline, instead of always spending data to listen on the go.
Another great feature of Spotify is the smart playlist system. Spotify analyzes your preferences and suggests tracks and albums that might suit your taste. And last but not least, Spotify has a huge music library with both popular artists and those who are just getting started. The playlists you create can be shared with the public or synchronized between your devices.
Security: Accounts Could Use More Protection
The only major problem of Spotify is that the app does not offer multi-factor authentication. The accounts get hacked from time to time without the users even knowing they got hacked. The hackers just sell the account information, and other users just add their devices to the hacked user’s account.
- Accounts are not protected enough
