The "Double Download"

Depending on how you listen to music you may want to download your songs within the Freegal App on your device and then within two weeks you can go to a computer and re-download those same tracks and store them for future flexibility.

Don't forget those downloads

Create a reminder on your calendar to download your tracks every week.
