Many individuals who own smartphones are big music lovers. You can enjoy doing any number of tasks related to music with your Android, iPhone or Windows Phone, all while keeping it protected in a leather case. Music and music sharing is as accessible as it has ever been thanks to the variety of great quality apps that can be downloaded through the app store. Here are the top 5 apps that every music lover needs to feed their music addiction.
Pandora Radio is one of the best music apps available for free on the iTunes App Store, Google Play and, most recently, the Windows Phone Store. You can create your own custom radio stations to listen to music based on an artist or band of your choice. The app will play that artist or band and others its database deems as similar, which is a great way to be introduced to new music you have never heard before. Pandora is even ad free on Windows phones for the first year, which is a great perk.
TuneIn Radio is a great free app that allows you to listen to music from radio stations anywhere in the world. It is available for all the major smartphone platforms and provides more than 70,000 stations for you to stream directly and tune into music. Locate your favorite station from your childhood hometown or one that you enjoyed listening to while you were visiting a friend or family member overseas. The app works in the background while you are doing other things on your phone. You can save stations and songs to your presets for quick and easy access as well.
SoundHound is a great app that is available in both free and paid versions. It is useful when you are looking for information on a certain song, such as finding out the name of it as well as the artist. When you access it, you can play, sing or hum a tune and the app will recognize it and deliver information on that song. You can also be open to new artists, free song streams and more. Even view lyrics in real-time while your music is playing.
Spotify is a great free app that provides you with access to any number of songs that you can enjoy listening to on your iPhone, Android or Windows smartphone while on the go. You can choose to listen for free or subscribe to a monthly premium membership. The free version only allows you to listen to stations in your own country.
iHeartRadio is one of the most beloved music apps for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone, and it is free. With it, you can enjoy listening to any number of live radio stations that can be streamed over your data or Wi-Fi connection. You can also create custom commercial free stations by selecting a specific artist or band. Like Pandora, the app will play that artist or band and others that are deemed similar.
