Kahlil Gibran once said, “Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.
” Isn’t it true? To help our readers who use Android based smartphones or tablets enjoy music at its best here we present to you top five music apps that include music player, streaming and download apps.
Poweramp has been one of our favorite music player for a long time. It supports a large variety of music file formats and offers software equalisation controls; a ten band graphical equaliser to achieve the desired sound stage, and also to manipulate treble, bass, stereo X and other controls manually using sliders.
Poweramp offers metatag editing and also downloads album art for files. Apart from creating playlists, the app allows adding songs to a temporary queue list.
Shazam is the music recognition engine that identifies some of the popular tracks being played anywhere with low ambient noise. Users can even hum the song tune and the app will surprise you by identifying the exact track. Once the track is identified, users can explore the different versions, watch videos of the track on YouTube and even buy the track from Google Play and Amazon Store.
LyricPlay can be used along with the songs to sing along with the tracks. The app also has a homescreen widget for quick access.
Enjoy free unlimited music streaming through this app and browse through the large library of songs – Bollywood, English and even regional. The app offers over thousands of playlists that have top songs listed to enjoy uninterrupted music. Users can set those playlists or songs as their favourite and also share the details over the social networks.
Radio Mode allows the user to build an automatic radio station to stream similar kind of songs. While the basic app shows some ads, one can subscribe to the Gaana+ to download the songs and listen to the music in higher quality.
Google Play Music
Google’s very own Play Music acts as a bare-bones music player to play most popular variety of music files. For those who could not gain access to Google Play’s music library, this would be a good alternative music player for you.
It will classify the songs on the mobile phone by Genre, Artist, Album and Songs. The Play Music could even play FLAC files. This simple and easy to use app allows creating Instant Mixes and Playlist without any hassles. The only thing it does not offer is a volume slider in the app user interface.
How would you identify an amazing song that you probably have heard after a long time or probably for the first time? The SoundHound app makes it really easy to identify it. SoundHound is an innovative app that is based on music recognition engine.
Open the app and let it listen to the music, and it will analyse the song to find out the song being played in couple of seconds. The search results help the user with online streaming links for the song if they are connected to a high speed network. One can also bookmark these songs to be checked later. The app also offers charts which basically lists the most popular songs along with their lyrics. Search for the song in YouTube to watch the music video or check out similar artists to enjoy more songs.
