    "Oh Spotify. I'm not 100% sold on this but I feel like it's a bit over my head. There's so many things going on that are available that it kind of makes my head spin. I think I'll look a little more into it. "

    "I love my streaming music and I'm particularly fond of YouTube Music on the iphone. I'm already extremely familiar with the interface and have a premium 'red' membership for ad free experience. For me, it's simply the best choice to discover new songs."

    #3Soundcloud App

    Soundcloud App

    Soundcloud is an app that offers you the possibility to listen to offline music from their catalog by paying a monthly subscription.

    "This is a terrific idea! Just about any musician in the world or anybody else who has something to say uses Soundcloud to upload their audio. Soundcloud itself is free, as is this app, unless you want to upgrade to a premium service for $10 a month. You can also use this app to upload your audio. So, for both creators of unique and truly indie sounds, and their listeners, this app should offer long hours of exploration and enjoyment."

    "Jalso is a newer music streaming app that purports to be able to de-throne Spotify in one particular niche area - music in Gujarati. The interface is easy enough for my mother in law to use, and she enjoys hearing her favorite Gujarat songs every day."
