Millions of people are streaming their music these days with apps such as Spotify and Pandora to mention just a couple. But those apps can’t cover every way I like to listen to or use my music. I like the ability to move my tunes between devices including hard drives and USB sticks. That means purchasing singles and albums for my library. So what are the choices?
I’ve never been a fan of iTunes, and since getting a Priv I’ve avoided Google Music. I prefer not to “feed the beasts”. For my needs I’ve settled on 7digital.
7digital is the service that drove the original media store in BlackBerry World. When that service expired 7digital put their app in BB World as a replacement. I’ve been using it before then and continue to do so. They have a website as well which lets you download your songs to PC for storage anywhere. Any activity/purchase is reflected in both the website and app.
As you can see, there are menu options that let you browse the store, check out the music you’ve purchased, view your downloads, and use Genre searches for finding new music.
The settings are numerous. Two of my favorite options are to download FLAC versions of my purchased songs, and also to be able to download to my SD card.
Browsing your list of purchased tunes lets you download them to your device, stream them, or play them from your already downloaded location.
As you can see you have all the usual controls available to you for playing your music. I tend to use a different app for playing songs on my device but for checking out your 7digital library it’s all there.
If you’re like me and want to take total control over how and where you listen to and store your music, be it in the cloud, on your numerous devices, or anywhere, and you want choices in the quality and size of your tunes from mp3, AAC, and FLAC you owe it to yourself to check out 7digital.
Available in BlackBerry World and Google Play. Enjoy your music!
