Spotify downloader that we don't recommend

Below results often appear when you google Spotify playlist downloader, but we don't recommend them for below reasons.

1 GitHub - ritiek/spotify-downloader

  • Spotify-Downloader downloads songs from YouTube in an MP3 format by using Spotify's HTTP link. It's not an app or a website with user-friendly interface. You need to be a technical professional and know how to code to use it.

2. Spotify Downloader for Android

There is an Android app called Spotify Downloader, which allows you to download Spotify songs on Android devices for free. You can download the apk from Aptoide or GetJar . You just need to enter your spotify user account name (or any account name), click on the playlist, then select the tracks and click on 'Start'. You don't need to use your password or authenticate. Seems pretty easy, hah? But the user ratings for this Spotify Downloader is only 3.21. Many users complain that it often says there is a problem with internet connection and couldn't download anything. Besides, it downloads songs from YouTube, not Spotify. Sometimes it doesn't download the entire song, sometimes only a minute and a half of it.

3. www.playlist-converter.net/

Actually it's not a Spotify playlist downloader at all. It only allows you to convert your Spotify playlists to free text, Deezer, SoundCloud, CSV and link.
