It is difficult to imagine a modern society without audio recordings and headphones. Just go to the subway to see this. Consider the best free apps for downloading music on your iPhone, as well as listening online.
We have compiled a rating for you from 3 programs that have wide functionality. Also added the popular social network Vkontakte, which is popular in the CIS.
We will get to know each of these applications separately.
These programs are united by one task. playing music. Despite this, each of them has its own unique set of functions. Consider the application in more detail.
It is worth noting immediately that 3 months of use are available for free to the user. Despite this, the application ranks first in our ranking because of its simplicity, excellent navigation and convenience.

Now consider the features of Yandex.Music. On the device screen, several tabs are available for selection:
Categories are displayed on the main page, as well as new tracks by popular artists. I would like to note that the collections are collected more on life situations, and not on genres (for example, “For a wedding”, “Eternal hits”, “Background”, “Peppy”, etc.), which is very convenient. You wanted to be sad. they opened the selection “Sad” and enjoy it.
The “Recommendations” tab displays audio recordings that the artificial intelligence system has considered the most suitable for you. The selection is based on the latest tracks listened to, playlists compiled, and many more factors. The system also makes up the “Playlist of the day”, which, according to the program, you will like. Updating occurs daily.
The name of the Radio tab speaks for itself. Choose one of the categories and turn on the necessary radio station, which is broadcast via the Internet.

The application is different in that it does not have its own library, as in previous applications. To use it, you need to download music from one of the cloud storages (Dropbox, Google Drive, Yandex, etc.), and then give the application access to the specified files.
The service is installed through the App Store. [Appbox appstore id1289293705]
The program is completely free due to the displayed ads at the bottom of the screen under the navigation menu. The principle of operation is as follows:

And now a short video with experience with the application.
