A Better Way to Download Music than iTunes
Summer is now coming into full swing, and we all are using our iPod’s or other Mp3 players wherever we go to listen to some good tunes. While many of us rely on iTunes for this service, we would like to introduce Amazon’s online music store, Amazon Mp3, and to see why we think its better than iTunes read on!
There are a few reasons we like this better than iTunes:
- It’s cheaper- yes, it’s usually only a $.10 difference from the iTunes’ pricing when purchasing individual songs, but albums on Amazon Mp3 can go for as little as $5.99 rather than $9.99 on iTunes or other stores, and all you hardcore music lovers out there know that when buying a lot of songs, this can save you a lot of money.
- It works with all iPod’s and Mp3 players- No worries about it working with only specific music players. Amazon has made all of their tracks in the open Mp3 format, which means that any music device– iPod, iPhone, PSP, Cell Phone, you name it– can play these songs.
- Works with iTunes and Windows Media Player- Love listening to your songs in iTunes or Windows Media Player? Have no fear; again due to that open Mp3 format Amazon uses, all of these songs will work with those and other Media Players on your computer, and yes, you can use those players to transfer your music onto your Mp3 player as well.
- Has all the major music brands- Want the latest Coldplay or Chris Brown song? Well, Amazon got it– and often for a better price.
