  • Soundtracking 2 of 9
    Music Apps - Soundtracking via Babble.com
    Soundtracking is the app for people who can find a good music track that personifies, well... just about everything they do on a daily basis. Soundtacking has the core discovery & sharing features to keep it on par with the other music apps, but what makes it special is it lets users add locations, photos, and captions to the music they're listening to in order to share it with other app users — as well as the world, via popular social networks, email, and SMS.
  • Shazam 3 of 9
    Music Apps - Shazam via Babble.com
    If you're one of those people who hears a catchy tune on the radio, in the elevator, in the department store, on TV, or everywhere you go, and feel you MUST find out more about it: Shazam is the best music discovery app out there. By opening up the app and holding your phone up in listening range of the song, you can find out the song title and artist, purchase the song in iTunes, read the song's lyrics, or navigate to the YouTube video.
  • Twitter Music 4 of 9
    Music Apps - Twitter Music
    If you want to make sure you're up-to-the second on the latest news, there's no place like Twitter. So it makes sense that Twitter Music is the app for people who want to stay current on the latest music. Just like following users, hashtags, and trending topics, Twitter Music lets you discover new music based on popular and emerging bands, as well as find out what your friends and favorite artists you follow on Twitter are listening to.
  • DoubleTwist 5 of 9
    Music Apps - DoubleTwist via Babble.com
    If you're a music snob who has painstakingly curated an extensive music library collection via iTunes, but defected to Android, DoubleTwist is the best way to listen to your iTunes library on your Android device. You can manually or wirelessly sync your library, and stream your library to other compatible devices, as well as discover new Podcasts and listen to ad-free streaming music.
  • Pandora 6 of 9
    Music Apps - Pandora via Babble.com
    No special features, integrated social network, or other bells and whistles interest you. You just want to pick an artist and let the music flow. Pandora is your choice if you want to let the service play suggested songs that are similar to your favorite artists. With Pandora, it's easy to curate the perfect playlist to listen to for hours by simply tapping the thumbs up/down button while a song is playing.
  • Slacker 7 of 9
    Music Apps - Slacker via Babble.com
    If you don't want some "bot" telling you what you should be listening to, and would prefer your music hand-picked by professionals in the music biz, Slacker offers Pandora-like "set up and walk away" operation, but with music curated by actual experts versus an algorithm. 
  • Songza 8 of 9
    Music Apps - Songza via Babble.com
    There are some people who can listen to any type of music at any time. Others are "mood music" listeners. The Songza App not only taps experts to curate music, but the app plays music based on different factors like time of day/week, where you are, and what you're doing. Whether you're at work, working out, going to bed, or just waking up, Songza has the songs to "get you in the mood."
  • Spotify 9 of 9
    Music Apps - Spotify via Babble.com
    For those music lovers who want it all, Spotify is the service that offers a humongous library of music that you can play/organize any way you want, an integrated social network to share your music with friends, and music available to stream according to any artist, album, or genre — as well as suggested music based what your friends are listening to, and music picked by artists or celebrities themselves. If you want it, Spotify probably has it.
