4 Apps For Downloading Free Music On Android
With all the things we can have on our phones today, music still seems to be the number one desired commodity. We roam the Internet on our computers in search of the latest tracks, music for workouts or relaxation, new titles by our favourite artists and more. And most of the time, we have just a few requirements to the files we download: that they are what they say they are and have a decent quality of sound. Luckily there is no shortage of music apps for the Android platform, and quite a number of them are also free.
Here are a few Android that can help you search for, download and sometimes even play music for absolutely free.
Note: Now when you hear the combination “free music” you might instinctively start wondering about copyright. However, you will find that the majority of applications will offer you Copyleft or CC licensed files.
Copyleft is a form of licensing that allows for the public distribution and editing of the creative work and CC Licensing (Creative Commons) is a public copyrighting license that enables free distribution of a typically copyrighted piece, when the author is willing to give the people the right to use and share his work.
4Shared must be one of the biggest names out there and is primarily known as a file sharing service for storing music, video, photos and more. 4Shared music focuses on giving you access to an abundance of music tracks, shared within the app, as well as upload your own. You can do a quick search for the title or artist you are looking for and play the song within the app before you download, to make sure that this is what you’ve been looking for. With 15 GB of free storage space, you can knock yourself out downloading the tracks you like and then grouping them into playlists for easy non-stop streaming.
Music Maniac Pro
Music Maniac Pro is not a music player in itself, but it will do a great job of downloading tracks to your existing MP3 player. This particular application focuses on Copyleft and CC Licensed files. That means you can download all the available music completely legally and guilt-free. The application itself is easy to navigate and you will get a hand of how everything works fairly quickly. All in all, Music Maniac Pro is the place to go for copyright-friendly music solutions.
Music Download Paradise
Similarly to Music Maniac Pro, the app will help you locate Copyleft songs, as well as other various music files. The application comes with a powerful Download Manager, that lets you download numerous compositions at the same time –which makes it a great choice for multi-taskers. As expected, the app allows you to search for content, based on the title, artist or album. The interface is clean and simple, but be careful when tapping around, as you may hit an ad (there are quite a few of these) instead of the needed file.
GTunes Music Download
GTunes Music Download offers a more comprehensive approach and gives its users a three-in-one solution: music downloader, music player and music editor.
The downloading part works in pretty much the same way as with other applications: you search, you scan the results and you download the tracks you want. The fact that the app comes with its own music player means that you can play the downloaded tracks right there and then and the player will also scan your phone for other music files to add to its library. Editing is a really nice additional feature to have, especially with a free application, and it lets you change the tracks you have downloaded, as well as make them into ringtones.
