Music apps offer music lovers access to millions of songs with a simple click of a button. The following are three of the most popular you can download to your mobile device today.
iTunes and the iPhone are in part responsible for the mp3 revolution of the Noughties, so it’s no surprise to see Apple is still at the top of the music app market. Apple Music contains a seriously impressive library of more than 40 million songs and subscribers can download any song to their personal library to listen offline. You also get access to thousands of playlists covering a multitude of genres, dozens of radio stations including Beats 1 and recommendations for new tracks and artists based on your music choices. Apple Music is available on iOS and Android.
Spotify is one of the most popular music apps in the world and features a catalogue of more than 30 million songs. Once signed up, you can search and listen to any track, artist or album for free, and there’s a strong emphasis on creating and sharing your own personal playlists. Spotify also hosts a wealth of podcasts and music videos, and there’s hundreds of personalised radio stations waiting to be discovered. Other great features include a personal Discover Weekly playlist released every Monday, collaborative playlists you can make with friends and a radio selection based on genres and artists. Spotify is available on iOS and Android.
Deezer is one of the more recent music apps to be released and offers subscribers unlimited access to more than 43 million tracks. The app’s main selling point is its Flow feature, which plays random songs from the app’s library based on the user’s personal tastes. Other nifty features include on-screen music lyrics, playlists and mixes inspired by tracks, artists and albums, live radio stations and lots of podcasts and audiobooks. It’s available on iOS and Android.
