Apple V.S Spotify: 5 Differences You Might Have Not Known

Do you remember the time Spotify just dropped in South Africa, local celebs from all over Africa were snapshotting it, screen-grabbing it and live streaming it! Forgetting about the longest living online music streamer being Apple Music.

Apple V.S Spotify: 5 Differences You Might Of Not KnownSource by:

#Watch Own The Block Season Two / S2 here

Well, now that we have 2 top-rated music streaming services… we thought let’s weigh their differences and see who’s really in the lead here.

The #OwnTheBlock team who are leaders in street-rap battles, music business, and entertainment across the Southern hemisphere have listed a few key differences that we think you should know, take a look:

1. Subscriptions:
Spotify offers a full-on free sign-up on their mobile App and website, where Apple Music allows a 3-month free trial only!

2. User Experience:
Apple Music starts to prompt their users by asking them to select genre-types and artists that they might be interested in, where Spotify recommends artists and music, which is a bonus for the user and if its an upcoming artist, while, then its a bonus for the artist.

3. User Interface
Both look pretty cool — & come across as being the main hubs for finding new artists, music, playlists, videos, and concert shows from around the world.

Also, see: Aqeem Jones releases his new music video – ‘No Hotline’

but there is 1 thing that stands out when looking at the Apple Music App and that is the saving and downloading of music content, where Spotify makes this a little bit more complicated when browsing its artist’s pages than being straight to the point such as Apple music.

Anyways, both Apps are pretty cool and we recommend them, imagine a world of songs and entertainment at your fingertips!

The chairman of Cape Town improvement Rob Kane says they can confirm that a 24 hour Cape Town is in motion.

Over the past few years, the CBD has been working on a safer Cape Town by tightening its security detail and making the town area as welcoming as possible for people to enjoy during the day as well as the night.

The city believes that this shift will have significant advantages for small business as well as businesses belonging to the nightlife scene and who promotes entertainment.

A few great facts in having a 24 hour running Cape Town:

  • An increase in Tourism
  • A decrease in unemployment
  • This promotes citizen security
  • Creates a better sense of belonging that could cause a decline in mental illnesses

This means that the entertainment industry can now create way more opportunities that will have a much more positive effect on revenue streams, such as clubs located in 24-hour cities like Berlin.
