    I just started using iTunes Radio to listen to different music and before that, I had Pandora. I've heard a lot of hype about Spotify and how their service is the best for the price. What other services are out there? Any recommendations?

    I don't know what you're looking for, but Spotify is, IMO, the best. But you might try Rdio.

    I've used Rhapsody for years, and am very happy with it. I stuck with it when Spotify came to the states because it seemed to have a better music collection and paid the artists a bit more. I'm not sure that's true any more or not. I think it's the same price as Spotify/Rdio.

    What do you like about Spotify? I'm also interested in the price plan(s) and quality. For awhile, Pandora was my goto app for music.

    I've tried maybe 4 music apps. Spotify just seemed to work best and look nicer. I don't like paying a monthly on any of them. So I just do free stuff now. Mostly been listening to a lot of Radio Paradise. I don't care much for most of today's music.

    I wrote this on the best music streaming apps a while back, but much of the information is still valid. Spotify has a promotion where you get 3 months for the price of 1. You might qualify for the student discount.

    I really enjoy Beats too.

    Here's the link to the Spotify 3 for 1. If you signed up previously for a trial, you are not eligible. I'm guessing a unique email address is sufficient to trip up the filter.
