Have you experienced the frustration of building a playlist through the Amazon Music app, only to have dozens of songs disappear as your playlist either reverts back to a previous version, or disappears altogether and comes up with the playlist empty? You probably already tried searching the Amazon forums, only to discover that not only is there no relief, but that Amazon is shutting their forums down! We can’t help with the forums, but we can help with your missing music playlists! In fact, it’s likely not that the songs actually disappeared – it’s much more likely that it is the app.
If you have been frustrated trying to figure out how to export the list of songs and music from your Amazon Music playlist, well, you’re not alone. In fact, a search for this holy grail of playlist exports shows that people have been trying to export their Amazon playlists for years, to no avail. Now we’ve cracked the code – at least until Amazon finds this article and figures out how to thwart this method.
Ever wish that while you were listening to a song on your phone you could also see the lyrics? Well, you can, whether it’s music that you have resident on your phone, or you are listening to a music service such as Pandora, or, yes, even Spotify.
We’ve talked in the past about the Amazon Music service (also called Amazon Prime Music), and we’ve raved about the Amazon Echo, through which you can stream your Amazon music cloud library, but Amazon has changed how you upload music to the Amazon Music cloud service, so here’s how to upload iTunes music to Amazon Music.
Facebook has quietly started rolling out an option to save links, videos, events, places, music, books, movies, and tv shows that your friends have posted, so that you can go back and review and refer to them at your leisure, in your “Saved” section.
If you have added lyrics to your songs in iTunes, and are used to displaying them while a song is playing on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad, but now they aren’t displaying in iOS 7, fear not, you just need to know where to find them.
I was trying to free up space and I unchecked all the music on my iPhone, synced, and there are still 113 songs on my phone! What gives? How do I get all of the music off my iPhone? Why isn’t iTunes doing what I tell it to? Here is the answer.
The scene was a pudgy man being chased around by scantily clad girls, but it wasn’t an homage to Benny Hill, it was Kim Dotcom’s launch party for his re-emergence back into the .com world – his new site, Mega (not to be confused with his now defunct file sharing website, Megaupload). Mega outdoes Dropbox by offering 50GBs of free file storage, unlike the 2GBs offered by Dropbox.
Amazon has just launched its autorip service – Amazon Auto Rip. So just what is Amazon Auto Rip? It’s a bit of a misnomer, as you don’t have to rip anything – the CD is automatically ‘ripped’ for you, which is why it’s called Auto Rip, and added to your Amazon Cloud Player (you can also play it on your iPod or other MP3 player). And it’s retroactive back to 1998!
The social media world is buzzing with opinions about the new Myspace now that they have released the new version. Ever since it was announced that Justin Timberlake was one of the new partners involved in reviving the dead social media site, the Internet has been flooded with speculations as to how the newly revamped site will compare with Facebook, Pinterest, Pandora, Songza and, of course, how it compares with the old Myspace.
Some iPhone 4, 4s, and 5 users who are running iOS6 are finding that they have a rather annoying issue – iTunes music or podcasts automatically starting to play after they receive a phone call.
Justin Timberlake is again bringing sexy back, this time to Myspace. Unveiling the new Myspace on Monday, Justin Timberlake and his two fellow investors, Chris and Tim Vanderhook, premiered a video presentation to company employees. The new design is sleek, graphically pleasing, is easy to use, imports Facebook contacts, and brings together users and their favorite artists. As Tim Vanderhook put it, “In a single sentence, it’s a social network for the creative community to connect to their fans.”
One of the biggest frustrations that iPad owners have had is that with the latest OS upgrade Apple has completely done away with the ability of the device to display stored lyrics from iTunes in the music player when playing music (not to mention that the music player generally now sucks – more on that in a moment). What do we mean by display lyrics stored in iTunes? What, you didn’t know that you can add lyrics to your songs in iTunes, and have them display when you are playing your music? Well now you do (by following that link)! And here’s how have those iTunes stored lyrics display on your iPad while you are playing music.
Ok, we’re about to share the greatest little secret: there is an app out there that works with your iTunes library to add lyrics to iTunes for your songs – all of your songs (or at least pretty darned near all). In case you weren’t aware, there is a function that allows you to add lyrics directly to the information associated with each of your songs in iTunes. And you can do it manually (search, find, copy, paste, lather, rinse repeat), but this little app does it for you automatically! We love this app!
