How to convert offline Apple Music On PC

Apple-Music-14

iTunes Converter for Win has been released. To Windows users, they have a good helper to convert any iTunes audio files on PC, including offline Apple Music.

If you want to listen to Apple Music offline, you need to download it at first.

Because Apple Music is a cloud based service, adding favourite tracks and playlists in Apple Music will add them to your collection in the cloud. If you don’t turn on Apple Music, you don’t have access to your musical cloud record, and the only way to listen to the music is to stream tracks while online. No offline copies, no playlists, and no bookmarks (just the struggle to remember your favourite albums you’ve recently been listening to).

If you want to backup the Apple Music files and want to listen to these music files really non-internet, iTunes Converter for Win can help you.

First, go to download and install the Apple Music Converter on your PC, run it.

Second, click the button Add, you can choose the different iTunes library to add the audio files to convert.

2015 the Best Selling Songs and Albums on iTunes 

2015

“Uptown Funk” was the biggest-selling song and Adele’s 25 was the biggest-selling album

iTunes unveiled its list of the top-selling songs and albums of 2015 Wednesday, with Adele’s 25leading the album ranking (to the surprise of no one) and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars taking the top spot in the song standings with “Uptown Funk.”

But while Adele may have been the one breaking all the records this fall, the iTunes list should remind the world that Drake had a big year too. The Toronto rapper couldn’t top the “Hello” singer’s massive comeback album, but he is the only artist to have not one but two albums in iTunes list of the top-selling albums of 2015, unveiled Wednesday.

Drake’s is-it-a-mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, the first album to go platinum in 2015, landed the No. 2 spot on the list behind Adele. His collaborative album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive, is at No. 6, sandwiched between Justin Bieber and Kendrick Lamar.

On the songs list, “Uptown Funk” dominated the year, but the other big winner might be the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, which appeared on the albums list and had two songs—Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” and the Weeknd’s “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”—crack the songs ranking. With Wiz Khalifa’s and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again” scoring the No. 3 spot, you could say it was a big year for movie soundtracks in general.

You can check out the full list on iTunes.

Biggest Selling Albums:
25, Adele
If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, Drake
1989, Taylor Swift
Fifty Shades of Grey (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), Various Artists
Purpose, Justin Bieber
What a Time to Be Alive, Drake & Future
To Pimp a Butterfly, Kendrick Lamar
Beauty Behind the Madness, the Weeknd
Compton, Dr. Dre
Montevallo, Sam Hunt

Biggest-Selling Songs:

“Thinking Out Loud,” Ed Sheeran
“See You Again,” Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth

Special Sales for iTunes Gift Cards

 

123

It never hurts to get a nifty discount.

That and it’s nice to build a nice cache of iTunes gift cards to use all year round, especially if they’re available at a discount. Discounted iTunes gift cards are one of the only ways to save on apps, music, movies and even your Apple Music subscription.

A couple vendors are selling discounted iTunes gift cards this holiday season. Currently, the best deal of the bunch is a $100 iTunes gift card for $80 via PayPal Digital Gifts on eBay. The gift cards arrive via email within a few hours of purchase, but the limited time offer is only available in the United States.


The best deal (for U.S. readers) appears to be from PayPal Digital Gifts on eBay, which is offering a $100 iTunes gift card for $80 (or 20% off) with no apparent limit (Jason bought four of these bad boys). The auction listing notes that “limited quantities” are available and the discounted cards sold out in a few days last year.

Staples is offering a 20 percent discount on $25, $50, and $100 iTunes gift cards. (limit 3, expires December 5, 2015)

Best Buy is offering a “buy one, get a second at 20% off deal” on iTunes gift cards (for an effective discount of only 10%). You must add two eligible cards to your shopping cart for the discount to appear.

We’ve received reports about $100 of iTunes gift cards for only $75 from Rakuten.com (via SlickDeals.com), which sounds like a better deal until you realize that:

1. You must pay with Visa.

2. There’s a limit of one $100 card per customer.

3. They charge sales tax (at least in California).

Using Rakuten, the total for a $100 iTunes gift card comes to $83.75 (after tax), which is more than the eBay/PayPal deal above.

What have you seen? If you find any great deals on iTunes gift cards, please share them with us via comments and social media and we’ll update this post.

Reblog from http://www.powerpage.org/the-best-deals-on-itunes-gift-cards/.

After you purchased the gift card, if you want to buy some music songs, the iTunes Music Converter can help you make full use of the Music.

If you have some protected Movies to convert, M4V Converter Plus is a good helper.
