1. Pandora (Free, US only)
If you listen to internet radio, you definitely know about Pandora. It is how radio should be – a personalized service that sends you only the music you like on your phone. This app is free and requires no subscription fees, though you do need to reside in the US to use it.
Just enter your favorite artist and Pandora will play songs by them along with similar artists that Pandora recommends. You can rate the songs and bookmark favorite artists that you've discovered as you listen. Pandora also features hundreds of music and comedy genre stations ranging from Dubstep to Smooth Jazz to Power Workout. The Pandora app really works best when you're connected to wi-fi so you can stream the songs without worrying the buffering.
2. TuneIn Radio (free, Pro version for $0.99)
If you love radio but want to tune in radio on your smartphone, you must check out this free music app Tuneln Radio.
TuneIn Radio lets you find and listen to local radio stations wherever you are and save them as presets. I love to use this feature while I'm traveling. You can also enter a song or artist and you'll instantly have a list of all the radio stations around the country that play that song or artist. With a push of a button you can then listen to that radio station from your phone. If you want to record what you are hearing on the radio, maybe you can turn to its pro version.
3. TuneWiki (free)
TuneWiki is my favorite free music app and is really a great alternative to the default music player on my phone. Besides playing the music on your phone, TuneWiki have some added features to make it stand out from the rest of the free music apps around. While playing a song, the lyrics scroll across the screen in time with the music. Quite lovely feature!
