They say that music holds an enormous power over us. In fact, it’s not uncommon to have several music mobile applications in our mobile devices. Music may bring back memories from the depths of our mind and make us experiment all sorts of feelings. It’s undeniable that music and melodies are part of our life and our daily grind. This is the reason why we wanted to dedicate an article to music. Or almost so, as we will be discussing the best music mobile applications for Android.
As you can see, we love coming up with lists on our Yeeply blog. We already have one with the best mobile applications for turning your smartphone into a mobile office and also one containing 2014’s top 10 apps. Besides, all indicates that you − our blog readers − also liked our mobile app list-making fever, right?
Therefore, we have decided to prepare another list. In this case, one with Android’s 6 best music apps. They are all apps worth having in your device and using every day. And by the way… we will even get to dance a bit! These music mobile applications for Android are not just music players. Get them running on your device and let music flood the space around you:
Top 6 music mobile applications for Android devices
This is the first mobile application that we’ll include in our list. And it’s also the most traditional one on our list of Android music apps. Despite being like a traditional music station, it’s among the best mobile applications for Android in this category. With Pandora you can listen to stations sorted out by artists or music styles, but also discover new music fitting your musical tastes.
It shares some similarities with Spotify, a giant among this kind of apps. And likewise to Spotify, its only drawback is that your playlist gets interrupted by commercials. It’s yet one more among the bunch of mobile apps that are free to download and choose to include internal ads as their means of monetisation.
This is a classic among music mobile applications for Android and iOS. It’s the mobile version of Soundcloud and has been conceived directly as an online service. You can access all of kinds of music, remixes, sessions and songs from a great number of artists with this app. It’s an online audio distribution platform where users can collaborate, as well as promote and distribute their music projects.
Many of us use this platform as a front page website to find new melodies and now − through its Android music app − we can also access contents from our Smartphone. Its only downturn is that you need 4G or Wi-Fi to play songs, because a high download speed is required.
Available for Android
3. Sing! Karaoke
Music lovers, karaoke amateurs and those who enjoy belting out the best songs or the current hits will be interested in Sing! Karaoke, the third app on our list of music mobile applications for Android.
The good news is that if you’re a lousy singer, this app enables you to improve how your voice sounds or apply amusing effects. You can sing a duet, a song among a larger group of people and share your songs with the rest of the Sing community. It’s both a karaoke on your phone and a community to meet other karaoke fans. And don’t forget to share on social networks! And although its song catalogue is currently a bit limited, new songs are being added on a daily basis.

4. Singstar Mic
It may not be one of the most widespread music mobile apps, but it’s an excellent app. This is the perfect app for music, karaoke and PlayStation’s SingStar fans. With SingStar, you will no longer need microphones to sing and enjoy a good karaoke session.
We’ve included this app in our list because besides being a good app, it has been released quite recently and deserves to be better known and more widely used. In addition, you can also create your own playlists. It works both with PS3 and PS4, is completely free to download and is also available for mobile devices such as your iPhone.
5. Musicness App
Far from being a traditional music application, Musicness is a music-related mobile game. From all the music mobile apps for Android we initially wanted to include in our list, we decided to choose this one because − besides being an app that has been locally developed in the city of Valencia − it’s one of the most interesting apps.
It comes as a trivia game about music bands and artists of your own choosing. Its slogan encourages you to become your favourite singer’s fan number one. It’s a source of curious facts, but also challenges you to beat your friends. From all the mobile applications for Android we’ve included in our list, this one is our favourite. It’s a good example of how gamification can catalyse engagement in mobile applications. Especially through its best fan ranking feature.
Available for Android and iOS
6. Dubstep Drum pads
And, last but not least on our Android music app list comes Drum Pads. It’s a funny app based on a cube with buttons that emit different notes in dubstep style and with which you can create your own music. With this app you will also be able to create melodies out of its several pre-engineered basslines. And it’s a fun and entertaining app too. However, it’s missing the possibility of recording the songs you create.
