Many people have music echoing in their ears all day long. They listen to songs on their mobile phones, on the radio, on mp3 players, tablets and even online. If you, like so many out there, are always on the hunt for the next best thing when it comes to songs, you need to try one of these apps.
1. Pandora Radio
This is the app for music lovers from all over the world, and what makes it so special and unique is that, rather than give you a variety of genres to explore, which could generate confusion, this app gives you the chance to create your own playlist, based on songs you already own. This app will take a song, a genre, even an artist and give you a list of other songs and artists that are similar and that you might enjoy.
Songza does require a sign up the first time you open it, but even that is not complicated. Sign in with your Facebook account and you’ll get a library of tunes ready for your ears. You can pick the channels you might like based on genre, which is pretty standard, but where this app begins to heat up is in the fact that it allows you to choose channels based on certain activities, such as going to the gym, your mood or even a culture you like. As you go along, you can add the songs you listen to, to your collection in order to hear them over and over again.
The app for those who don’t like overcomplicated apps, AccuRadio arranges its channels by genre and allows you to listen based on the types of music you like. Where it really distinguishes itself has to be with its own channel that is a space in which you can find new music you might like, as you go.
4. TuneIn Radio
This app is a middleman between you and various radio stations. It is a hub in which you can choose the channels and decide on which suits your musical tastes the best. If you like music, but you’re not in the mood for a song, how about using this smart app to find a business show, a sport show or a talk show so that you can mix things up and stay informed. Had enough? Simply switch back to the music and the show goes on.
This app is a one-stop shop, a vast network of channels that all collect in one place, and allow access at the touch of a button. Add songs to your playlist, listen to songs you’ve never heard before and best of all, share it on Facebook or Twitter, so that your friends know just how trendy you are. One of the most unique features of this app is the ability for the user to select a song, and then tell the DJ they don’t like it. It’s like being in the studio yourself.
