Napster is a name known to most music lovers. While it ascended pretty quickly as one of the favorite ways to get music at the beginning of the 2000s, the service was quickly banned due to several lawsuits regarding copyright infringement.
Napster is an app created after the rebirth of the service, designed mainly, but not exclusively, for the company’s clients. Nowadays, Napster is a subscription-based digital music service that aims to allow you to listen to music wherever you are.
The program comes with a clean interface split between the song list and the audio player. Napster can work both online and offline.
While the program doesn’t require a Napster account to work, some features are reserved for the service’s clients. Thus, access to the Internet radio stations and to the CD burning feature is blocked to regular users.
The software can play various audio files, whether bought with Napster or already on your computer. The tracks on your account can be played online or downloaded to a directory of your choice. Other tracks you may have on your PC can be played by dragging and dropping them to the program’s interface.
The entire music collection can be viewed by genre or artist. Music playlists are also supported by the app in order to make the process more enjoyable.
The software allows you to define a download directory and organize your files in subfolders by artist and album name.
Account issues can also be addressed with the help of this app, such as billing options, payment information and track purchase history.
All in all, Napster is a nice app, with a few basic features. The software is easy to use and intuitive, which means that inexperienced users should find it easy to work with.
