Turn up the volume with the top music apps for smartphones. Long gone are the days where we toted around clunky audiocassettes and CD players, and now even MP3 players and iPods are becoming things of the past. These days, you have your pick from endless music apps, right on your phone, ensuring that you’ll always have tunes on the go.
The Recapp realizes that not all music apps are created equal. Some make you pay for your tunes, some limit the amount of songs you can store—the details you don’t want to worry about when all you wish to do is jam out. You’ll also need to find a music app that caters to your streaming preference. Do you want to listen to your own music library (that you’ve spent years building), or do you want to create radio feeds for new music listening?
That’s why we break down a whole boatload of music apps for you. Download an app that allows you to tune in to your favorite radio station, browse the top music apps that offer personalized feeds, and even get an app that plays soothing sounds before bedtime. We at The Recapp take care of the hard part: figuring out which music apps are the best and which are ones make us want to tune out. All you have to do is find a pair of good headphones.
