Great Music on Android Apps

The Google Play Store has many music related apps to choose from, but some do stand out from the crowd.

It would be impossible to look at all of them, so here we have chosen five of them that we think are some of the best there is.

Great Music on Android Apps

DoubleTwist

We have talked about DoubleTwist a lot around these parts and with good reason. DoubleTwist became a favorite of Android users that had deep roots in the iTunes ecosystem, and still is.

However, besides just offering a simple, seamless way to sync your music between iTunes and Android, DoubleTwist is a fine music player in its own right.

The basic music player download is free, but if you are looking for a little more in-app purchases are available to unlock the full power of the app. It has a lot to offer, too. Beyond the visual appeal, you have an equalizer, high quality album artwork, a “What’s next” list that eliminates “the guess work of what’s coming up next” and support for a whole bunch of different audio formats.

Add videos, podcasts, wireless syncing to your iTunes library, sending music to your Apple TV and other devices, DoubleTwist isn’t just a great music player. It is a great all-round media player.

3 (Cubed) (Free)

There are troves of apps that let you jam out to your MP3 collection, but 3 (aka Cubed) aims to make the experience more visually interesting than the rest. This sleek music player stuffs your tunes into an interactive 3D cube, which you can swipe left and right to sift through your songs and flip up and down to sort through your albums.

This Last.fm-compatible app has a basic feature set, but its unique level of interactivity makes it worth a download.

Shuttle (Free)

Shuttle is a free, lightweight, feature-packed music player that also offers some neat extras for paid users. Shuttle’s interface is reminiscent of the stock Google Play Music’s card UI, and the player comes with an equalizer, gapless playback, album & artist downloads, and Last.

FM scrobbling to name a few of its features. It also takes full advantage of Android UI features, with lock screen and notification controls and widgets. Users who upgrade to Shuttle+ ($0.99) gain additional interface customizations, as well as tag editing and Chromecast support.

Google Play Music (Free)

The default music app from 4.1 Jellybean onward, Google Play Music is definitely a step up from the old Android music player.

The app sports basic player functionality, sorting by album, artist, and genre, as well as an equalizer, but that’s not where the real action is. Google Play Music builds in cloud streaming playback, allowing users to upload their music library to Google’s cloud locker, streamed on demand.

A new Google Play Music All Access program can even provide ad-free streaming from a library of more than 18 million tracks. Add in integration to the Google Play store and this one is player you should not overlook.

Amazon Music

With the debut of Amazon’s Prime Music program, the Amazon Cloud Player received a major overhaul. Now renamed Amazon Music, the app allows you to play locally stored music, create and edit playlists, and stream music to your car or home stereo via Bluetooth.

The real selling points though are the market integration and cloud locker streaming. Users can search for and purchase new music and then stream or download tracks and album straight into your device to enjoy at your leisure. With an Amazon Prime subscription, users also gain access to a massive library of music that they can stream and download at will ad-free.

JetAudio Music Player Plus ($3.99)

JetAudio is another desktop music player that has taken the leap to mobile with the JetAudio Music Player Plus on Android devices. The Android version of JetAudio plays a whole bevy of music formats, from the bog-standard MP3 to more uncommon formats such as FLAC, OGG and APE.

The app comes with a host of options such as playback speed control, gapless playback, and crossfade, fade in and fade out, a 20-band equalizer, Bluetooth headset control support, tag editing and widgets.

Spotify

Spotify gives you instant access to millions of songs – from old favorites to the latest hits. Just hit play to stream anything you like. Spotify works on your computer, mobile, tablet and TV.

You can also browse through the music collections of friends, artists and celebrities, or create a radio station and just sit back.

Soundtrack your life with Spotify. Subscribe or listen free.

Pandora

With over 100 different music artists/genres, Pandora Internet Radio (also known as Pandora Radio or simply Pandora) is a music streaming and automated music recommendation service that serves as “custodian” of the Music Genome Project.

The service, operated by Pandora Media, Inc., is only available in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. The service plays musical selections of a certain genre based on the user’s artist selection.

Another nice feature of Pandora is it has a thumbs up/thumbs down feature to play the songs you like the most. Both free (have to put up with commercials) and a paid version for just a few bucks a month.

What people are saying!

I received these as a complimentary pair when the Sports pair arrived and didn't work. To note, my wife has another pair of the Sports earbuds and they have been working fine for over 6 months. These Concert earbuds however outshine the Sports line. The bass is very good for a small earbud, as well as the overall sound quality. I have Shure headphones that sound marginally better, but cost 4 times as much as well as Beats by Dr Dre (which stopped working) that didn't sound nearly as good. Great overall value for the quality of product.

Excellent headphones. Customer service was superb when I contacted seller. Great value, with even better sound.

Over the top sent me a pair of these to evaluate so I could see the improvements made in the slider volume switch as well as the great sound.I think the improved slider switch will eliminate any problems I experienced with the other units.It is now safely inside the case where it cannot be damaged or knocked off. Sound is very full, much better than the original Samsung earbuds, much louder than the originals... maybe half again as loud with very full sound.I bought a $130 set of B*se earbuds a while back. Sound on them was so low that I couldn't enjoy the music. I quit using them because of the low sound volume. These are actually much better in my opinion.

I ordered Over The Top Services Sports Earbuds - Model gs27 The Logan Collection 4th Generation Stereo Headset and they didnt work the way I expected so I returned them. Over the top send me a free pair of the Concert earbuds to make it up for my disappointment and to be honest these are great earbuds. The sound is great and oh boy, they are loud. Love them! I would recommend them.

These are amazing ear buds, and available at a fraction of what is on the market right now. My husband has a super expensive pair that he uses for running. They were totally over price and boasted noise cancellation, super bass etc. He left them at work the other day and used mine out of desperation. After his run he came home an apologized for not being a believer in my ear buds sooner. These ear buds have incredible sound, are 100% noise cancelling and are not heavy or intrusive. I use them when I am working out and I want to zone out and not be aware of everyone around me. I use them when I am on my lap top working and want to drown out the outside chatter. There are several different sizes of buds that come with the set, and simple directions that explain how to get the best sound quality and fit- all at a very affordable price. I have these with me everywhere I go. Very happy with this order.

Oh, yes I love them!!!! Now, I can use my I Phone to listen to my fave audible books, music, and not be afraid I would miss my phone calls. When I am feeling the need for the funk, triple funk bass sound, I flip the switch and get deep soul loving vibrations, that have had me dancing through grocery store aisles. A flip back to the vibrant treble makes for crisp audiobook clear sounding narration. As a professional music review critic (LMR Hot Music Reviews), I NEED to hear every instrument, which I am happy to say these earbuds surpass in expectation. Great bang for the buck, with interchangeable bud covers for different sized ears. More dependable and safer than Bluetooth technology because of the phone jack, and mic that allows you to place and receive calls, record messages or work with face time call options. Slips easily into a pouch and into your purse or wallet. Even when jammin' to the music, your teen can't say "I didn't hear your call!" Another GREAT stocking stuffer for the upcoming holidays! This is a must have!

In all the years I've been buying things online I have never felt the need or the inclination to write a review for products that I have purchased, good or bad. Music is a big part of my life and am critical when it comes to sound. I have been searching for a really good pair of earbuds for years without having to break the bank. I have tried so many different ones $150 or less. I have finally found what I've been looking for. These Concert Earbuds are the best I've heard so far! I am not a paid online critic. Just another customer. Both highs & lows are clean and powerful. And I am saying that without having to break these in. Alot of earbud purchases claim there is a breakin period before they will sound their best. Not these. The earbud cushions may be the most comfy I have tried. In short, I love these earbuds! I challenge anybody to find better earbuds than these at anywhere close to this price! Maybe some over ear headphones may top these, but I don't want over ear headphones. I have not jogged with them in my ears so can't comment on that. Don't think twice ...just buy a pair of these. You won't be disappointed.
