Music junkie? Here are the ten best music apps for consuming and creating tunes.
August 14th, 2018
Based on our experience, we estimate that there are probably a billion different music apps on Google Play and the iOS App Store. Those aren’t exact figures, but we reckon we’re not far wrong. With all this choice, we thought nailing it down for you could be useful and a real timesaver.
The best apps for listening to music:
• Google Play Music – offering a free version and a ‘premium’ version where you need to pay a $10 monthly subscription that gives you access to Google’s massive song database.
• Apple Music – Apple’s first music streaming service that offers access to any song in the Apple Music library — no matter where you are for a $10 monthly subscription.
However, there are plenty of other apps in the sea, such as:
• Youtube Music (Free/Subscription)
• Spotify (Free/Subscription)
• Pandora (Free/Subscription)
• Vevo (Free)
• Shazam (Free)
The best apps for creating music:
Like we said, there are A LOT of options out there! However, our all-time favorite is…
• Garageband – The mobile GarageBand isn’t so different from its desktop brethren. You can play and loop a variety of instruments, from cello and acoustic guitar to drums and synths, using your iPhone’s touchscreen display
If you are not a Garageband lover like us you may want to check out these other apps:
• FL Studio Mobile ($14+ Fees)
• Forscore Mini ($10)
• Musyc (Free)
• DJ Studio 5 (Free)
• Ultimate Guitar Tabs (Free)
