Anyone got invites for Spotify? I’ve found a free software client for it and want to try it out using their day pass option (£0.99 for 24 hours). But:
You need to be logged in to order a day pass. You get can get an account by becoming invited by a friend or buying Premium.
Premium is the £9.99 a month option. So it looks like you can’t get a day pass without either first having bought at least one month pass or being invited…
You have email
You can get a login from a UK IP address for free, I’m pretty sure? At least, that’s how it worked for me…
AFAIK libspotify based clients only work with premium accounts. Use the Windows version with wine—it works just fine.
Yeah, I just found that out :-( So I forked out for a Premium account anyway. It’s fine, but testify (the only GUI client I could find) could certainly use some work!
You also have Jotify (http://jotify.felixbruns.de/), the Java client for Spotify, using a java port of the despotify library, and also the ncurses client example in the despotify (http://despotify.se/) package.
I’m just testing out the HTTP-Gateway of Jotify which is, quote: “A standalone HTTP-Server including a simple Web-UI […]” that lets you stream and play music in an HTML5 Audio capable browser like Firefox. :-)
