15 Killer Music Apps You Should Start Using Today

15 Killer Music Apps You Should Start Using Today

I cannot imagine my life without music. I wake up to the sounds of my favorite tunes each morning, work out, travel my commute listening to music and work with my headphones on most of the time, and I just can’t count how many significant moments in my life are deeply connected with a certain song.

If you are, at the very least, even a tiny bit passionate about music, I bet the next 15 music apps will instantly become your favorites!

1. Musicovery

La-interfaz-en-la-app-de-Android-no-es-la-mejor-lograda-pero-cumple

    Musicovery is an awesome app that enables you to personalize and adjust your playlists according to your mood with just a few clicks. After synchronizing the app for the first time, you’ll constantly have offline access to top recommended songs from the website, along with your phone library.

    Open the mood pad and roll your finger to start playing the samples. If you are satisfied, just lift your finger and a playlist will be generated from the last song rolled over. Also, the app automatically adjusts your playlist by analyzing genres, decades, moods you’ve chosen and your interactions with the app – e.g. “I like/I don’t like” ratings and skipped songs.

    So far, Musicovery proved to give the best customized playlist for me.

    iOS (free) and Android (free)

    2. MP3 Downloader for SoundCloud

    Free Music App

      This nifty app developed by Freemake lets you download tunes from SoundCloud onto your device without any copyright breaches. You can browse through numerous lists, search your favorite beats and singers offline and have the music steaming without wi-fi.

          All running enthusiasts know how inconvenient it is to be tapping the volume key all the time, according to your listening environment. It gets even more annoying while driving, as your hands are busy.

          The Autovolume app solves this problem by automatically correcting the volume based on the data from built-in speed and motion sensors.

          Also, this app features a number of pre-set sound adaptation modes based on the activities you do – skiing, working out, driving, jogging etc making it my go-to app for sports!

          Available for Iphone only as of now.

            Currently there are some 100.000 sounds to choose from, and like me, I bet you will find (or create) the perfect tune to make you fall asleep instantly!

                    10. iHeartRadio

                    iheartradio2

                      djrun-uso

                        This is another amazing app that all jogging geeks will love! DjRun will analyze all the songs from your library and match their beats per minute rate with your stride, or even adapt the playback tempo like a real DJ.

                        As the app uses your phone’s accelerometer, it can instantly adapt to your pace to matter which activity you are now into – skating, hiking, skiing or even gliding.

                        Currently the app supports three modes:

                        1. Auto – picks a song based on your current stride rate.

                        2. Pin – fixes your stride rate at the number you want.

                        3. Training mode – the stride rate will follow a predefined profile set by the user or taken from the app.

                        Android (free)

                        12. Karaoke Anywhere

                        Advertising

                        screen480x480

                          Ok, admit it, even if you don’t have a sweet voice, you still love singing out loud your favorite songs. At least, at home anyway. Karaoke Anywhere lets you choose your tune of today from a free library of 10,000 songs.

                          Plus, if that’s not enough, you can purchase an extra 40,000 songs. Lovely design, huge beautiful lyrics and high-quality background music – what else would you wish for in a karaoke app?

                          iOS (free) and Android (free)

                          13. Mono

                          13

                            Mono is an amazing new music discovery app merging together an artist browser, music discovery engine, concert finder and playlist engine with friend sharing and much more! I love the clean simple designs and the ability to sync my music from various channels including SoundCloud, YouTube music files and Subsonic.

                            For now, available on Android only.

                            Android (free, but with a yearly subscription of $0.99 to get unlimited access to all features)

                            14. Chordmaster

                            chord

                              Everyone who love playing the guitar (or just learning) should have this app on their phone. For $.99, you get unlimited access to some 7,800 guitar chords, along with a beautiful visualization of all notes and fingerings on a virtual fretboard.

                              By merely tapping the screen, you can view the selected chord at any position up and down the guitar neck – a handy feature for beginners. Also, you can strum the virtual strings to play and hear each chord and compare with your own results.

                              All the chords are neatly categorized in Root, Chord Type and Chord Variants, making them easy to search and save. However, the best feature Chordmaster introduced is  the “lefty mode” that displays left-handed guitar diagrams that rarerly could be wound elsewhere.

                              Currently available for Iphone, Ipad and Ipod touch only.

                              iOS ($.99)

                              15. Musyc

                                A gorgeous, graphical musical app, crafted by Fingerlab, where you can create music with your own touch. Get into your zen state by bouncing peculiar colorful shapes around the screen and producing the sounds of 88 instruments!

                                It’s a harmonious and tranquil game you would likely love playing more than the highly-addictive and seemingly never ending Candy Crush. Currently, Iphone only with an Android version soon to be launched.

                                iOS (free)

                                8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                                8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                                Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

                                1. Zoho Notebook
                                  If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
                                2. Evernote
                                  The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
                                3. Net Notes
                                  If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
                                4. i-Lighter
                                  You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
                                5. Clipmarks
                                  For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
                                6. UberNote
                                  If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
                                7. iLeonardo
                                  iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
                                8. Zotero
                                  Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

                                I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

                                In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
