    "Soundcloud is one of the best music apps for Android because it has the best search feature. Other apps restrict you on what you can find but Soundcloud gives you feel control to find remixes and collections."

    "Shazam is a pretty awesome app. It's amazing what technology can do nowadays. You can turn on the Shazam app, and it'll listen to the music it hears in the background. It will then tell you what song is playing and the artist who is singing it. It's awesome. So many times I'm listening to the radio, and really love a song, but have no idea who sings it. Shazam works very well, however every now and then it doesn't know what a song is."

    "Pandora is fairly well-known, and for good reason: it does the job it purports to do, which is to continually play music that you like. The more you use it, the more it becomes aligned with you own tastes. I find that it is best if you are using it to play background music while you are working or doing other stuff. The downside is that the app itself is somewhat harder to tweak. This is not really an all-purpose music app, but as long as you don't think of it that way, you'll probably find it useful."
