It plays a huge part in fueling my workouts and keeping my drive alive so I wanted to share some of the tools I use to keep that music fresh and always available.
How does having access to all of your music on all of your computers and devices sound to you?
How about having all the music for FREE?! And doing it legally in a way that the artists are happy with?
I'm going to show you how in this post!
First, you need to download Soundcloud on your phone and register at the Soundcloud website. Here is where you can find the new and trending music of all generes. Plus it is FREE to create playlists to organize your music. Here is an example from my soundcloud account.
Another way I keep music ready for me at all times is with
Google Play Music.
This site and app allows you to store ALL your music
(50,000 songs) for free in the cloud so they can sync automatically so you can find on all your devices, computers, and phones!
Using Google Play, a program can be downloaded to your computer that will connect to iTunes and automatically sync select playlists or all of your music.
Anytime you add new music to your iTunes playlist, it will be synced to Google Play so that your phone will also have access to it.
Now Google Play and Soundcloud both require an internet connection to access your music. Make sure you are aware of your data usage if you do not have an unlimited plan (which I couldn't live without.)
If you want a way to sync AND store your files on your device, you could also use
Dropbox, Microsoft One Drive, and Google Drive.
I use all 3 so that I get the max amount of FREE space
Dropbox gives 5GB to start with more space free if you invite users who join. I'm up to 16.5 GB FREE :)
Google Drive gives 15GB of free space for any type of document. Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, or files shared with you do not count towards your storage limit!
