Spotify's mobile app has "gone free," but the only way to listen to your music sure sounds awful.
The smartphone app, however, doesn't work exactly like the PC service. Users can access their playlists and music albums, but they have to scroll through their lists randomly using a "Shuffle Play" button. Users can't pick the exact song they want to play right away, and will have to shuffle through their playlists.

Yesterday we brought you Reggie and the Full Effect covering He is Legend. Another one of James Dewees' perks for his Kickstarter was to play on a fan's demo/recordings. James ended up playing on an AP.net user's entire album, and as explained by the fan, "it's one of those things I had dreamed about as teenager when I first started writing music." The resulting album is up on Bandcamp in its entirety.
