The Best Music Apps for Your Smartphone



Music is a big part of our lives. It is the background to many of our memories and can make or break an atmosphere. It is also a great way to keep productivity up during the day. There are many different music apps that you can use, but not all of them are created equally. Some have more features than others, and some have better sound quality than others. We’ll review the best music apps you can use to get the most out of your listening experience!


SoundCloud is an online audio distribution platform that enables its users to upload, record, promote and share their originally-created sounds. Users can easily record and upload audio to the site, which can then be played or downloaded by other users.


There’s a fair share of streaming services for music, but Bandcamp is unbeatable if you’re an independent artist. This site has fantastic features: search tools, a hashtag system, and artist showcases. In addition, it gives you all the network features of a typical social media site, where you can listen to or buy music from the artists you follow. 


Vinyl lovers, here is your new favorite app! Discogs is a mandatory app if you’re an LP or record collector. You can find the editions of all albums by every musician and track content created by the community. It also helps you keep track of your collection and what records you have. Importantly, Discogs is also an online record store. So when you find the edition and disc of your choice, you’ll be able to see if there are any retailers or collectors who have them for sale. You can also access the sales section for used and new CDs, vinyl, and music memorabilia.


Spotify is one of the leading music streaming services in the world, and its app is also one of the best. The app offers a wide range of songs, albums, and playlists from artists all around the world. So whenever you feel like listening to your favorite artist or playlist, Spotify covers you. You can also create your playlists and share them with friends. Spotify is free to use and comes with offering music based on your interests and past listening sessions. In addition, premium users can listen to songs on demand, without ads, and use the download button for favorite music lists.


Tidal is an app based on the same idea as Spotify, but it does a few things differently. For one thing, there are about 90 million songs that you can stream for no cost. This app’s creators also partnered with record labels to offer first-time listeners music from famous artists for free. The app is available in 61 countries and on mobile, tablet, and PC.

Then, one tap will identify the song and offer you the option to purchase it. In addition, you can find info about the track, artist, and album and find safe sites to buy it from.
