Use Napster’s huge collection of music to stream or download some fresh tunes
The days of queuing up at the local record store to get your hands on new releases is a thing of the past. Getting hold of new music is a vastly different experience to ten years ago.
Now, the digital age has long taken over. Cloud-based music streaming services are becoming more and more prominent, and Napster’s very much a part of that movement. Offering unlimited access to a collection of millions of songs in return for a monthly subscription, Napster houses this service in an excellent app – as well as a desktop version.
Napster’s intuitive app lets you search, download, stream and listen to any track from its catalogue. New music is added every week to bolster an already formidable collection, Users can stream their music wherever they are in the world, as long as they have a data connection, but also listen to their favourite tunes when they’re offline by downloading songs to their device. It all comes to fruition through a fully-featured app that’s incredibly easy to master.
In this tutorial we’re going to focus on getting hold of new music. You’ve got your subscription from Napster (it’s free for a month – so there are no excuses) and now you want to make the most of it, it won’t be long before your CD collection becomes obsolete.
