Music is a common language that unites people - it's pretty much universal - even animals understand it. In that spirit, and since many of us here at Aptoide are musicians or DJs, we felt it made perfect sense to celebrate the Word Music Day by providing you with the best music apps for Android that you can find on Aptoide.

This selection covers several different types of musical apps - from music identification and streaming to music making and even musical social media apps! Sounds good? Time to get funky!


1. Shazam

You know when that song comes up and you're stuck without knowing what it is? No matter where you are, if you hear a song you like but don’t know, Shazam is sure to solve the problem. With Shazam you can simply hold your phone up to identify the track, buy it, and share it with friends. However, you have to play the track for Shazam to identify it – humming won’t cut it..


2. Spotify

Spotify is hands down the best way to listen to music on mobile or tablet! Search for any track, artist or album and listen for free. Make and share playlists, and build your biggest, best ever music collection.

3. MusiXmatch

MusiXmatch is pretty much amazing, because - guess what - it matches lyrics to Spotify tunes, which allows you to read lyrics to music on your device, and it's perfect for singalong! Karaoke, anyone?


4. Soundcloud

The SoundCloud app lets you hear more of what you want to hear, basically. If you're in need of a tool to quickly and easily save and share your music, messages and even audio interviews, SoundCloud is for you. Sounds good, doesn't it?

5. Mixcloud

Mix cloud is pretty cool, as it lets you search, browse, discover and stream a huge collection of high quality audio. It is basically Soundcloud but for DJs, Radio Producers & Podcasters. Use it to follow your favorite DJs and to get notified about new uploads.

6. Tradiio Free Music

Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Drake - these are all names that reached the top, but who's next? With Traddio you decide which new artists reach stardom. Try it out to listen to fresh new music that you’ve never heard before!

Download and Play

7. Snaptube

The easiest way to download videos, period. SnapTube is pretty amazing, I'll tell you that. It is a complete package for entertainment on your smartphone, and it is super exciting for video and music lovers. Snaptube allows you to download videos from YouTube, Facebook, dailymotion, vuclip, vimeo, metacaf, and listen to your favourite tunes while offline.

Music Making

8. Caustic

The best Digital Audio Workstation, similar to an old school classic called "Reason". Allows you to connect several different synths and drum machines, and even provides a really cool mixer, sequencer and a number of different effect machines. Perfect for anyone trying to get into musical production.

9. Electric Guitar

Electric Guitar is b-a-n-a-n-a-s! It sounds so real! Even allows you to change the note pitch by bending the strings. Also has a really cool chord mode that allows you to realistically play any guitar song and become an air guitar pro!

10. Cross DJ

Really feels like Traktor or some other professional DJ systems. If you get two mobile devices (preferably with a headphone jack!) you can really do a live dj mix and even scratch! If you're okay with automatic beat matching, you can even mix internally using the auto sync and the crossfader. Really cool for beginner DJs!
