Apps to download songs


Music downloads constitute a major part of what most of the users tend to do on their smartphones. Using a reliable and trustworthy service or app for the purpose is a lot more important. There are a large number of third-party sites and apps that promise to fulfil your needs, but in the practical sense, it is quite scary to use them. Many of them tend to be illegal and may violate copyright restrictions. Let me bring out a few good music downloadable apps that help you in this regard.


It is one of the most vibrant music streaming services out there. It does have a good UI. It is one of the wells-designed services among the competitors.

  1. Guvera Music

This is a largely unknown player. The service seems to be intentionally keeping a low profile. It does feature a good library. One of the most disappointing features with the app is the ads it keeps showing up. In fact, the ads ruin your music experience to a large extent.

However, the app seems to have been taken off from Google Play Store recently. Though I am not sure of the reason, you can search for the apk link by searching for the app.


Well, that was a small list of Music Download Apps that are more legal in nature. I know there are plentiful of apps promising to do the same for you in the app store, but most of them tend to be spurious. I would advise you to be cautious with such apps.



In fact, almost all of those mainstream music streaming and download services seem to be almost identical to each other. Gaana and Wynk tend to be better placed by a whisker though. Please note that none of these apps will allow you to download music without a subscription. All ten apps featured above have a great interface except Hungama which needs to do something with its interface to stay in the competition.
