Spotify is cool, really cool, but it has also got its limitations. Especially if you're one of those users that don't want to become a subscribed user. And even more, if you intend to use the app on your mobile device. There are solutions of all kinds, from the most illegal options to paying for everything you listen to. Whatlisten (any similarities to WhatsApp is pure coincidence) is in the middle, an appealing tool to be able to listen to and download music straight to your smartphone or tablet.
OK, but how does it work?
Well, the first thing that you've got to do is figure out where to get hold of it because Whatlisten isn't available in the Play Store. To install it, you'll have to enable the option that allows the installation of applications from unknown sources. However, you're probably aware of this fact at this stage.
Once you've opened your new app, you've got two options: search for whatever you want to listen to or incorporate your music to lists. You can search for whatever you want, although the application offers you a list so you can find your bearings:
- Best songs (includes recommendations, your history and the songs you listen to the most).
- Best artists.
- Best albums.
Once you've carried out your search, you can add the best tracks to your favorites, and place them or remove them from lists. But if there's something cool about this app is that within each song we can view the lyrics of the latter over a blurred image of the album. You can choose if you want each song to play once, to repeat it, add it to favorites, check songs and artists of a similar style, enable random playback, and access related videos on YouTube.
But that's not all. See that arrow that appears up in the left-hand corner on the toolbar? You've only got to tap it to download your song without any delays to the device you're using. Apart from that, the app can be quite chaotic until you start getting the hang of things.
