If you love music but don’t have an extensive collection of your own, you may be wondering if there’s a way to listen to your favorite tunes without sitting in front of a radio. If you own a smartphone, it turns out that listening to your favorite music can be easy with the help of a few handy apps. Whether you’re looking to stream music, listen offline, or find your favorite album from 10 years ago, there’s likely a music app that can help you listen to music your way. Here are a few popular music apps and what they allow you to do:
- Pandora – This free app allows you to create stations by artist, genre, or time period. Then, Pandora will play recommended songs based on your preferences. You can even “thumb up” or “thumb down” songs to help the app learn more about what you like. Pandora also offers a paid premium membership that allows listeners play any song at any time with unlimited skips.
- iHeartRadio – The iHeartRadio app lets you listen to certain radio stations and podcasts, and also lets you create stations based on your favorite songs or artists. This app also has a number of helpful features. For example, you can look at the lyrics of a song while it plays, read an artist’s biography, and even set an alarm so that you wake up to your favorite tunes.
- Spotify – Like Pandora and iHeartRadio, Spotify allows you to search for a specific artist or genre of music, and then plays recommended music based on what you chose. There is also a paid version of Spotify that allows you to download music you can listen to offline, as well as play any song you want at any time.
These three apps make it easier than ever to listen to your favorite music wherever you are. Of course, if you’re listening through a speaker in your One 51 Place Alachua, FL, apartment, be sure to be courteous to your neighbors and keep the volume at an appropriate level.
