I use spotify premium thanks to spark, will definitely be trying out the apple music though. might end up subscribing to both in the end as long as spark keeps it included with my plan. will also depend on the NZ pricing of apple music but as long as I keep getting itunes cards when on special it should be alright.

Spotify does have web playback now which is (iirc) OS independent, just uses HTML5 audio.

Personally I do like Spotify because it has the best developer libraries, for instance I can use Spotify with a Raspberry Pi because of their SDKs, the only issue is that certain features like Spotify Radio is missing.

I use spotify here only because I get it via Spark. It does what it says on the tin and suits my needs ok.

Lets start with that "list" that has been circling the internet:

odd that Xbox music isn't on the list.  $us9.99, can stream, buy albums, stream your own albums from onedrive, listen offline etc.  I use that mainly.

I also use Spotify on occasion - because I get it for free and want to look at someones list of suggested music.
