If you are a music lover, i.e you listen to a lot of music, you deserve to have the best music listening experience on your phone. This is the ideal case, but then you open up the Play Store and look up for Music Apps. After seeing the tons of Music Apps, you go back to using the stock app as you cannot decide which one is good for you. This is what happens every single time. But we have got the work done for you. After trying a lot of music apps, here we are with our recommendations for the Best Music Apps on Android.

If you are subscribed to Online Services for listening to Music, you have fewer options as you need to stick with the default app provided by them which is good most of the times, If you ask us for the good music subscriptions, Spotify, Saavn, Wynk Music, Jio Music are some of the online music streaming services we prefer on a personal note.

Wink, Wink, let us stick to the main topic for now.

  • PowerAmp Music

Music App Homescreen
PowerAmp SS by ~Neeraj

We talk about Music apps and this app doesn't get a mention is beyond science. It's simple yet with many customizable audio options. The UI isn't modern yet. For someone who gives first priority to UI would declare it as UGLY even after the revamped UI. Don't get me wrong, the New v3 UI feels way better than the past, but still, something feels lacking. It’s not the best out of the box, but do some tweaks as per your liking and it will stick in your app list for a long time.  

  • 10 band graphical equalizer
  • Crossfade, separate treble and bass adjustment.
  • Lyrics support via plug-ins.
  • Download/Search missing album art.
