S.t.A.M.P.

If you’re a recent convert (like me) from Spotify to Apple Music, you know that one of the only real headaches is the loss of your playlists.

STAMP (Spotify to Apple Music Playlist) solves that problem . It’s a brilliant script that migrates your Spotify playlists to Apple Music. Here’s how it works:

  1. Download STAMP
  2. Export your Spotify playlists
  3. Run STAMP
  4. Create your playlists in Apple Music

Full instructions are on the STAMP homepage. I used it after seeing it on Product Hunt and have to say it works pretty well.  It works by taking advantage of Mac OS accessibility features to “type” searches for each playlist item into Apple Music and then “click” through the process of adding that to your music collection.  It doesn’t actually create a playlist but that’s simple enough.

It’s not perfect: it choked on my larger playlists and got thrown off by songs with nonstandard and lots of non-alphanumeric characters. That said, I was using v1 for free. V2 (not free) might be better.

Some tips:

  1. Make sure you save your exported playlists as csv files if you don’t pull directly into STAMP
  2. You'll still have to create a playlist after you import your music. Go to your music, select the recently imported items and right click to create a new playlist from them.  
  3. Open Apple Music and click on the “new” tab before starting anything (see below)
