  1. The list is really good and everyone needs this pages. Thankfully my boyfriend is DJ and I don’t need to bother about these things anymore as he does that for me. Just dropping him alist of songs I love and then I have them. Great article though.

  2. I always listen music via Spotify. I have a paid account and I love it. I really use it a lot. I have several music lists. And it’s so easy to add songs and listen to them. Shazam is very handy to have on your phone for whenever you hear a song and don’t know the title or singer anymore.

  3. I was using Shazam for some time, but haven’t been using any of the mentioned above. I think this post comes as a real refreshment and gives us more detailed information about the apps we all need, have and frequently use on our phones. As I read on the forums, Spotify and Sound Cloud are very good, so I think I’ll choose one of them.

  4. My favourite site to discover new music is really SoundCloud, because there are lots of unsigned artists. It is really a place to listen to uncommon artists that are far from the major label artists we can find elsewhere. I didn’t know about Gaana, I might have a look at it someday. Anyway, great article!
