In the previous article, we've introduced you how to convert Spotify music to iPod with ease. You might wonder whether it works the same on iPad. Of course, it does. Let's cut to the chase.
Part 1. Spotify Free or Spotify Premium
Spotify offers a free subscription and a paid subscription. The differences between these two plans are:
Free subscription enables you to play Spotify music online but with ads on 160kbps.
Spotify premium enables us to download Spotify music for offline listening without ads on 320kbps.
If you are not sure whether to purchase Spotify premium or not, you can check this quick guide here: Spotify Free vs. Premium: Should I Pay for It. My advice is, if you have more requirement on the listening experience, like ad-free and audio quality, then a paid subscription will be your good choice.
