Can you take me through the main areas of the Freegal App?


Home Screen.   This screen shows certain featured albums, and allows quick browsing of the TOP 10 recent downloads by your fellow library patrons, and the TOP 10 recent downloads of all the Freegal users in your country. The upper right corner has your weekly download allocation, and the number that you have used in the current week. The search icon is in the upper right side as well. The play button is to play a song clip (or stream the song if your library has a streaming subscription), and the downward pointing arrow is to download music. The bottom of the home page has the major functionality buttons described below:

My Music:  “My Music” is where all your songs are stored.  Once you download a song, this is where it goes.

Playlist: This is where you can create shortcuts to your favorite music.  Most people will use this after they have downloaded a lot of songs.  This way they can separate their classical music from their workout music, etc.  You can create multiple playlists to organize your music.  Once you create a playlist, you will have the music both in “My Music” and in the Playlist area.

Browse: In this area, you will be able to quickly browse the most popular Artists, Songs, Genres, and Music Videos by selecting these options from a navigation bar at the top of the screen in the Browse area.

More…: This section contains the Settings page, where you can logout of the application, and the My Music Videos page. The My Music Videos page holds your music video downloads just like your My Music page holds your downloaded songs.

If your library has a streaming subscription you will see a Recent tab instead of My Music, and the My Music page will be grouped in the More… section with My Music Videos and Settings. The Recent page contains a list of all songs that you have streamed that particular day.

As a Freegal Music user, you can download a song again for the purpose of having a copy in your iTunes and in the Freegal Music App.  You can do that within 2 weeks of your original download by accessing your library’s Freegal site via a computer, and accessing the “recent downloads” functionality on the navigation bar of the home page
