As a newbie who has just purchased a Samsung S3 mini I do not know how to download music to my memory card in order to listen to music offline.
Could you advise which app download from the app store as currently I am "working blind" - my phone is syncing on my pc but I cannot see what is actually happening on the phone .
I am thinking of switching from O2 to Giff Gaff to gain unlimited streaming. It is an o2 subsidiary. Good or bad idea do you think? I thought this might solve the hassle of constantly downloading. When they say "unlimited internet" do they mean "unlimited data allowance" - and would this also lead to the drop out problem if I stream in my car as opposed to downloading to an SD card.
I am hoping if I manage this I can do the same with Google Play and leave Itunes forever.
Any opinions? Cheers.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just having a read at the release notes from when SD card storage was reintroduced. They say:
Please note: if you were using the Spotify app already and you want to change the location where your playlists are stored, you need to exit the Spotify app, go into your device's Settings, Apps, Spotify, then tap Clear data and Clear cache.
So make sure you are running the most up to date version of the app and then give it a go?

How do I move songs from phone memory to SD card?
I signed up to Spotify Premium in January 2015. I got a 32 GB SD card in February. I’ve been downloading music to listen to offline and have just found that my Samsung S3 mini phone memory (built-in memory) is full and none of my downloaded music has gone to the SD card. Pretty frustrating. I’ve looked up the community advice. Uninstall and Reinstall Spotify – done, but makes no difference. Now I see an option to delete all from Spotify except the app itself. Have I really got to take this option and start again downloading everything with a new destination (ie SD card) or is there a SIMPLE way to just MOVE my songs from phone memory to SD card?
Some people have had luck with Apps2SD apps on the Play Store. You could always try manually moving the \Android\data\com.spotify.music\ folder from your phone memory to the sd memory then reboot!
It may then detect the new location and continue using it; else it may become corrupt and you will then have to perform a clean install; the guide details the steps to take to ensure a full 'clean installation' is achieved - This includes checking redundant folders and a REBOOT!
