Due to limited take-up, we will no longer be using Freegal from 12th December 2018.
Please note you can save your existing downloads by following the below instructions from the Freegal site:
How do I download a song on my computer?
When you've found a song you want, click on the "Download" link next to your chosen song. At the prompt, select Save and choose where you want to save the song. If you're not presented with a prompt, try right clicking the link and choosing the option to save the link (i.e. Save Target As, Save Link As, or Download Linked File, etc.). This will let you choose where to save your song.
How do I backup Freegal Music from my iOS mobile device into iTunes?
Open up iTunes on your computer and you should see an icon of your device appear in the top left, under the player. Click on the icon to open your device.
On the left of your computer screen you will see Settings. Select "File Sharing" which will open the "File Sharing" screen and scroll down to Freegal Music
How do I transfer songs via iTunes?
Freegal music has its own iOS Application that can be downloaded from the App Store. Some users may still wish to download songs to their PC and synch to their mobile device, as they will have the advantage of having a copy of their music their computer's memory.
Apple, the manufacturer of the iPhone and the iPad, has created their devices without the ability to download music directly, unless going through the iTunes store or using an approved application. To get music on the iPhone, iTouch or iPad, Freegal recommend the following procedure:
- Download Freegal files to your computer desktop by doing the following:
- Press "download now"
- Press "save"
- Direct download to desktop.
- Next, import the file into iTunes. We believe the easiest way to do this is: Open iTunes then drag the file from the desktop to the open application. The next time you sync your device the Freegal file will be both on your "home base" computer and your mobile device.
