Spotify playlist downloader for iOS and macOS

I have tried a few Spotify ++ app to download music from Spotify, but they all got revoked for some time. Luckily, I have found a shortcut called Spotify Playlist Downloader, so I can use the stock app, Shortcuts, to download music from Spotify.

In case you haven’t used the Shortcuts app. Shortcuts is an app for automation, which was first introduced in iOS 12. To add a shortcut to your shortcuts library for the first time from an iCloud link, you need to first create a shortcut by dragging any action in there and run it once). Then you need to go to Settings > Shortcuts to toggle on the option Allow Untrusted Shortcuts.

This shortcut only works for Spotify playlists. Let me show you how it works.

Step 1. Get the Spotify Playlist Downloader shortcut by opening the link in Safari and tapping Get Shortcut.

Step 2. Open your Spotify app on iPhone or iPad. Copy a playlist link. You can also run the shortcut from Share Sheet.

Step 3. Open Shortcuts app and run the Spotify Playlist Downloader shortcut. The shortcut will show you all the tracks in the playlist, you can select some of them to download if you don’t want to download them all.

When the process is complete, you can open the Files app, and then select iCloud > Shortcuts > Music to check the downloaded MP3 files. As far as I know, Shortcuts app does not work very well in the background. I suggest you check the downloaded Spotify tracks only after all tracks have been downloaded.
