 Spotify has hit the US!
That's right!

I've been waiting for Spotify to hit the States for almost 3 years now (sorry Canada).

www.spotify.com

I must say, this thing is really badass! :o

I am paying for the $9.99 version (there is a free version), with it I get to listen to anything I want (assuming it's part of their 15 million song library), as many times as I want, online or offline (yes, no internet required), and on my phone as well.

They way it pulls and integrates with your local music files though is quite clever too. Lets see you have 3 MP3s (or whatever) from an album, well all your local songs are pulled into the Spotify player so you can play them. But, now if you click on the album art for those songs, all of the sudden you have access to the whole album! it just steams the songs you don't already have.

I am really very very impressed with this.

Oh and it will sync all your music to your iPhone or Andriod phone for you over wifi :)

so how does it work, if it needs to stream the songs, how does it work offline.

It Caches them. If you don't go back online for 30 days though it will assume you stopped paying the monthly fee and turn off the cache.
