    "Decent app, it says any song but there's tons of missing content from plenty of artist. It's an ok app if its your last option but I wouldn't recommend it."

    "The app works pretty well.. sometimes slow to sync correct album dates, artists.. but it eventually catches up just fine. Another thing I slightly dislike is the widget but everything else is at least tolerable."

    "With so many streaming services out there, finding one that is good is a bit hard. Some don't have enough music, while others don't even have what I'm looking for. I came across Free Music Ninja recently and decided to try it. I have to say, it was just what I was looking for. Plenty of music and every artist I listen too. I highly recommend trying it out!"

    "Jamendo is a great website if you need stock music. It has a large catalogue and lots of choice from indie artists. Not great for listening to major bands but useful if you need music for licensing or business needs. "
