    "Deezer is a music streaming app for listening to more mainstream media, but maybe isn't as custom as Soundcloud where you could upload your own music. But this music streaming service has a pretty large library and it's pretty customizable."

    "A descendant of the Zune and Xbox music brands, Groove is a subscription based music service from Microsoft that allows users to stream millions of ad-free songs to their computer and other devices. Radio stations are also available. The best feature is the ability to download songs for offline listening! I use this feature daily at the gym. Highly recommended alternative to SoundCloud with a larger catalog and better user interface."
