But I discover that there is no download link for a free Spotify account. Do you have some issues when getting Spotify tracks onto SD card? What can I do for syncing Spotify songs and playlists to SD card?
Yes, when you are running out of your phone's memory, you can choose to move Spotify to external SD card. However, so far this way works well for Spotify premium members, who have the ability of downloading music for offline playback.

Solution Two: How to Move Spotify Music to SD Card for Free Account
The method mentioned above is unstable and sometimes is invalid.
