Student or military discount helps. I'm not sure if that applies outside the US but I use a friend's student info to get my discount. I pay same price as the cheapest plan for my HiFi. So worth it

With the amount of music I listen to, €20 per month is still cheaper than buying it all individually and having the HDD space to fit it.

Ah shame. They should offer it outside the US if they offer it inside the US.

It is worth remembering spotify later this year is releasing their "HiFi" plan at cd quality I believe they said. So you could wait to try that as well. Idk if they announced pricing yet or availability worldwide.

Yeah, I heard about that. I think it's coming to Ireland later this year. I probably will wait for it as I'm already part of the Spotify infrastructure. And as much as I think their app is way too stripped down, I am used to it and have multiple playlists that I like.

The worst part about switching music apps is rebuilding libraries. You'd think a smaller company like Tidal would implement some sort of feature like that to help get people to try and maybe stay in their ecosystem.

It's the same with note taking apps. I've been a user of Evernote for a decade, but their latest update completely ruined the experience. The company saw a mass exodus of customers and clients so it wasn't just me. But there was no way of transferring notes to a different app. The competitors seemingly had no way of installing a import feature into their apps. The only way to transfer them was manually.

There are websites for transferring libraries, but I can't really recommend them as it's a pretty obvious security risk - much like GOG Galaxy 2 plugins. As in, official APIs aren't crafted with easy switching in mind, and as such they utilise your full credentials / session cookie.
