Amazon Music

☀☀☀ Amazon Music is OK, but you have to have an account. A music subscription is $9.99 per month for a non-Prime user or $7.99 per month for Prime users. (A Prime subscription runs $99 per year) Amazon Music boasts millions of songs, no ads, and, of course, you can create playlists. Music helps me write, think and create. But there are other music apps available for free, such as Spotify and Pandora (so long as you don’t mind commercials). For those not ready to commit, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial. — Olivia Davila
