Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Freegal™ Mobile Application is a completely free and legal way to access a collection of almost 9 million MP3 songs via your local, subscribing library. The Freegal offering includes many of today’s top artists, a fantastic retrospective collection, and music from around the world.
Once you have downloaded this application, you will be able to search to see if your local library has contracted for the Freegal service. If they have, you must have a valid library card (if not call your local library). If you have a library card to a Freegal library, you can join the millions of people around the world getting a select number of MP3 downloads courtesy of their local library.
Library Ideas, LLC, the parent company of Freegal, is a company dedicated to providing digital solutions to libraries and schools of all kinds around the world. We urge you to support your local library in any way you can.
What's New in Version 2.2
Improved language support
What I like about this app is that, through my library membership, Freegal allows me to download five free songs a week. But there seems to be some glitches. 1) if my song list is too long to fit on the screen, I can't seem to add those songs at the bottom of the list to a playlist. When I scroll down and then let go to check mark the song (or to play it, for that matter), the list scrolls back to the top. 2) The other thing is that when I'm deleting letters in the search field, after I delete the last letter, the app closes. I'm not sure if these glitches are related to problems with my iPad or if they have to do with the app.
Not as described, no help
This app is supposed to provide the MP3 file, but there seems to be no way to actually get the file and move it into your iPhone library. You can only play it in the app. Connecting through iTunes doesn't allow you to get the MP3 file out of the app either. Better to not use the app and instead download the MP3 file on your computer, then add it to your iTunes library and sync it to your phone that way. There is no help or FAQ on their website.
