Android, the mobile operating system acquired by Google, is taking the smart phone market by storm. Owing to this popularity of the Android platform, thousands of apps have been developed for the phones based on it. There are apps available for every imaginable purpose in the Google play store. For this article I will be focusing on the best music applications available.
TuneWiki is a media player for Android phones. It has all the features that a media player needs, along with some awesome new features, like the real time lyrics. When you play a song in TuneWiki, it fetches the lyrics of the song and displays them as the song proceeds. You can also opt for the song lyrics to be in your preferred language, though currently it supports only 40 languages.
SplashPlay is an application that assists you in learning the guitar, on your phone. The basic app is free, but to experience all the features of the app, you have to pay. It displays chords and notes of the songs that you are playing. It is usually more beneficial to people who know the basics of playing guitar.
This small app lets you keep a log of the songs that you hear on your device, and it does it automatically once you install the app and login to your Last.fm account. After that, whatever you play on your phone music player will be noted down on your Last.fm account.
Nothing much to say about this application, as its name says it all. It lets you record your music or other rehearsals, along with your annotations on them. You can also mail a copy of this rehearsal to anyone, for later reference.
CLiCKin 2 Da BeaT
CLiCKin 2 Da BeaT is actually a game. It is a simple game that involves music and video. All you do in this game is, tap some randomly appearing points on the screen of your phone. You can even create your own levels for the game.
Hit It! Lite
Hit It! Lite is an application for drum enthusiasts. Using it, you can play drums on your mobile device. Just tap the screen or shake the phone, to enjoy some awesome drumming. It comes in a free and pro version.
This little free application lets you add and listen to streams from the Shoutcast radio stations. This is a background app and comes with a few default station directories, which you can edit as per your needs.
Here is another application for guitar lovers. But this one doesn't teach you anything, it just lets you enjoy the playing. The sounds produced do not sound artificial at all and the interface is also very easy to use.
The list of music apps for Android doesn't end here. There are many more available and a lot more are in the making.
