    I know this has probably been dealt with before, but I think enough time has passed since I saw this mentioned and there might be some new good apps for this.... so what's the best way to get music on the Passport?

    The old BB Word Music store was great! But now that's it's gone, I found 7Digital to be a disaster and I don't really want to use another Android port.

    Any suggestions?

    My suggestion would be to buy yourself a spotify premium membership and get the android spotify app. If you specifically need music to download to play later while your offline, build an offline playlist (spotify lets you). I haven't tried google music yet, and I heard apple music will also be releasing an android app soon so you could try that too. But I personally have been a spotify premium use for years now, use it across all my devices, and I love it.

    My issue is that I don't need a subscription. I just want to buy the odd song to download it to my device and play offline (like on a plane). One would think that this *should* be relatively easy to do???

    I would say qobuz. Files are high quality, and there is no use restriction.

    I use Amazon. I do think the old BlackBerry World was way easier.

    I'll be watching this thread. Started a similar one a while back and nothing simple. I know that when BlackBerry removed the music from BlackBerry World, 7digital was forced to make a statement saying that they are still partners with BlackBerry, but it's just not the same and I haven't purchased music since they removed it from BlackBerry World.

    Stupid move really unless there was some issue with 7digital that I am missing. Would like to just purchase through Amazon, but was offered a bunch of workarounds. Ehhh.

    Perhaps but its downloaded via their Hmv mobile site. Its for buying music and not for storing or anything else. I don't think its the same. You just buy music and download to your device. It doesnt gravitate to a site like 7digital to buy or download music at least not here in Canada. SO im not sure what you are talking about.

    When I downloaded the HMV app, it said that I had an existing account. So when I asked for a password reset I got an email from 7Digital.

    It's the same service. Even the app is almost the same.

    I have spotify premium, you can cache a lot of music to the device for offline use (like the airplane or out of cell range). Just get the app from Amazon.

    The cost is $11.20 total per month, so about the cost of an album of 7 digital. It works well unless you specifically need Taylor Swift 24-7.

    I still use 7D for specific album purchasing that I want, if I have to I just use my desktop to download and make a CD, USB or transfer over the music via wifisync via link.. The mobile app works well on the Passport, just try to remove the bar and zoom out for the most view area.

    I've used 7D and the download bit rate was lower than stated getting lower music quality!

    I like using Fast Tube. I'll build a playlist of songs before I go out. There are some limitations...you're not actually "saving" the music and you're stuck with the order you saved the music on...but it works.

    I've liked 7Digital in the past (particularly when they were integrated with BlackBerry World), but I agree that their current app isn't an awesome experience.

    I use Google Play music now and I sync my downloaded/purchased music with my Passport.

    I copy all of my music from my Mac to a SD card. I don't want music only on my phone.
    You can use Link to sync your music or just copy it over. Blend works too. Buy it on your computer, copy it over.

    I just started to use Amazon Music, I downloaded the app from the Amazon App store. It is linked to my Amazon account. The purchased music can reside in the cloud our you can download to your phone. I tend to download so i have easy access to select the right music for Story Maker

    My favorite was Amazon Mp3...on legacy phones. BlackBerry World & 7Digital don't have as much of a selection, I had a hard time finding certain artists.

    I'm currently using the newer Amazon Music store. I'm like you I'd rather download the songs/albums to my sd card to listen anywhere without data because well it's my music.

    Amazon is way to go. Mp3 files can be placed on any device and/or install amazon mp3 app and play from there since your purchases are available on amazon cloud.

    With BB10 you don't need an App to download music. Buy it, download it, save it (in the cloud and/or locally) and enjoy! It's very, very easy, and you're not tied to any one service!

    Through my public library, I can download 5 rights free songs per week (using Fregal), so I get more than 250 songs a year free, and use HDTracks (for lossless FLAC), Amazon, and direct purchases from musicians. I have completely stopped using iTunes thanks to Blackberry.
