ive given up buying music, i listen to everything on pandora but I'm after a small mp3 player (similar to ipod shuffle) that will allow me to sync songs to it from a pandora like service (dont mind a monthly subscription), im wanting to use this when Im running so dont want a big bulky thing and dont want to take my phone with me.

google play i dont think will let me sync songs to a shuffle, as i think it needs its on app (so android or ios).  

anyone know of a service that has drm free sync for subscribers or allows syncing to a nano?

I would have thought the "smallest" being the ipod touch with Spotify offline playlists. Not heard of anything smaller.

Same idea as you


But then I found this:
Sync to iPod via itunes

yeah cant really find a device that works with these services. wont be a problem in a few years where mobile streaming is cheap enough, but currently way to expensive and need to sync offline.

thought there would be a small android music player but i cant find one.

I don't think you can usally save streaming music services. I recall vodafones music system a few years ago allowed you to download music and it was unmetered over 3g. Not sure if it still exists. I recall trialling it on my small nokia candybar phone which would be almost as small as a nano, and it worked quite well, and I think the music saved offline too.

you can offline sync a bunch of services, google play, spotify, rdio, but only on certain apps/devices. tryign to find a very small device that a service supports.

ipod shuffle + spotify only syncs music you actually own.

i mostly get sick of listening to the same stuff over and over, so like services like pandora that always plays different stuff, and want to change the synced songs once a week or so.
