You can opt for a premium subscription which eliminates ads and gives you more freedom in the app. You can create collaborative playlists with your friends and share them with other users. This also gives you a chance to explore podcasts that offer a variety of topics if you’re more interested in podcasts. Spotify’s library has over 20 million songs, audiobooks, radio dramas, poetry, and speeches. Spotify also offers discounted premium subscriptions for families and students, which is a great way to access all your favorite songs on the road without spending too much money.




The Metro Manila Development Authority has developed an app to make driving and navigating much easier for various users. You can monitor the traffic situation through a map or line view. You can also get updates from MMDA about any disruptions or accidents that can affect your time on the road. Most importantly, you can share and file a report directly to the MMDA’s Twitter account.
