    "Garage band is a amazing tool for to use for recording and making music that is not connected to wifi. You can easily record whatever instruments your using and upload them straight into it. You can then edit and modify them however you like by using the editing tools in the app. Best of all you dont need wifi to use the app. This is seriously one of the best music apps to create music.

    "This search is rather broad, so this app might fit within the search somewhat. This is less a pure music app though, and more about music creation tools. This could be what some are looking for, but is likely not going to fit the needs of most people with this search."

    "This program is fairly amateurish. The sales pitch is really annoying. It shows that they don't have much of a product when they have to hype it with gimmickry."

    "This is a fantastic way to listen to music, even when you don't have access to wifi. There's an endless amount of music to choose from, and great options for creating playlists or albums to listen to, online or off. This has become the only music source I bother with, regardless of where I am. I've got a few tiny gripes about the interface, but nothing to ruin the otherwise awesome musical experience."

    "AmpliTube for iPad is not so much as a music app like Pandora or Ghanna but an app to amplify instruments. It is a pricey app at $9.99. Functionally iTunes and Amplitude work together so you can set up your amp and then switch to iTunes to play songs"

    "For music without wifi I downloaded Vectorscope. It's not really for listening to music per se, but more for analyzing the wave form and mixes of songs. For niche players, it might be passable. For general consumers, it isn't great."
