Freegal (rhymes with legal) allows you to download 5 songs for free every week and keep them forever. These songs are in the MP3 format and are DRM-free. You can also download music videos from Freegal but each video counts as 2 downloads. Here's how to use Freegal:
In the top-right corner, you will see numbers next to a blue music note. This is the notification area that will show you how many of your 5 weekly downloads you have used.
Songs you download via the Freegal site will not automatically sync with the Freegal app in case you have it installed on a mobile device. However, songs you download with the Freegal app will show up as being downloaded when you sign in to the Freegal site.
