Steve Heinrich on FreeYourMusicPricing

Looking to switch (subscription) music streaming services? Make transferring your playlists and songs easier with FreeYourMusic. All works inside THEIR cloud, so no up/downloading by the user. A way to move their collection of playlists and songs from one music service to another. This saves a lot of time for those with a ton of songs collected in one service. I would say it’s probably worth the premium cost considering the time saved and amount of music services offered. The premium plan also offers some nice syncing and backup features for those who move services often. Personally, I would just pay once to transfer somewhere else then cancel. 

There’s also the (apparently) free Tune My Music according to Daniel Da Rocha
