Best Music Apps
Listening to music is not only able to uplift you and brighten your mood, it also capable of enriching your knowledge and generally making you a more complete and serene person. That’s why having the ability to do so directly from your smartphone is such a great convenience, you don’t have to carry around a separate device to enjoy your favorite tunes, just plug in your earphones and you’re good to go. Naturally, if you want access to tons of great music, or you have specific requirements about how it is reproduced, you’ll need an app which enables you to listen to the music you want, the way you want to do it. We tried to mention some of the most interesting apps of this type, but there are lot more of them out there, and some of the ones that didn’t make it to this list may suit you better, so don’t stop searching until you’re perfectly satisfied with what you’re getting.
This app is not about music reproduction, but it will appeal to all the music lovers out there. Basically, it analyzes your music library, and based on what it determines about your taste, it gives you info on the tours of your favorite bands or bands that you may like. It comes with customizable alerts and a concert calendar that allows you to easily view all the info on your favorite band’s gigs. Songkick is a completely free app, and it is available for iOS and Android devices.
The full potential of Spotify only comes to shine with paid subscription, but the app is pretty handy even in its free incarnation. If you decide that you don’t want to pay $9.99 a month, you’ll still have a great radio service that Spotify provides, although you will have to tolerate the ads. If you, however, want the full service, not only will the ads be removed, but you’ll also be able to sync your music libraries, listen to your favorite music when offline, and easily share the tunes you like with your Facebook friends.
This great app excels at offering music suitable for the occasion you find yourself in, and giving you relevant suggestions based on your input. The playlists that it offers are put together by professionals in the field, so you are not just getting a random set of songs that may or may not have to do anything with what you wanted. Like Spotify, the free version of Songza is ad supported, but the subscription that will, aside from providing more content, remove the ads is quite a bit cheaper at only $0.99 a week.
This one is aimed at those who create music, rather than on those who only enjoy it. Basically, Garageband, as it name implies, allows you to easily record your own songs, and comes equipped with a ton of options that allow you to not only capture your music, but also edit and produce it. While it is mostly intended to be used for finding the right song structure and experimenting with different effects, it offers enough options that it actually allowed one band to record an entire album in it.
