Our own Jeff Benjamin told you about an Apple Script for exporting your Spotify playlists into Apple Music. Now there’s now an even easier method to migrate your music to Apple Music as someone has built a dedicated app to transfer Spotify and Rdio playlists to Apple Music with a single click.
Created by two guys from California who call themselves Move To Apple, their new app aptly named Move to Apple Music automates the process of migrating all your music and playlists from Spotify or Rdio to Apple Music, in exchange for $4.99.
Beyond importing your songs, this Mac-exclusive software also produces your Rdio and Spotify playlists in the format iTunes accepts. “We don’t block your computer while transferring your songs, feel free to use it,” says the blurb.
The app uses the official login API from all services so it won’t access your data directly.
“We use this great library called mitproxy in order to intercept the data iTunes sends to Apple’s server,“ their FAQ explains. “In that way we can replicate exactly the same request as iTunes would do when you click on ‘Add to My Music’ button.”
Note that there is a 30 second delay between each import ”to keep the iTunes API happy“. Paying for the license allows you to install the app on no more than two computers.
And here it is in action.
I haven’t tried Move to Apple Music yet as neither Rdio nor Spotify are available in my country. For what it’s worth, developers claim their app has imported nearly 150,000 songs over the course of eight days.
The $4.99 app can be downloaded straight from MoveToApple, but you’ll be out of luck unless you have a PayPal account as that’s the only payment method they’re accepting for the time being.
