There are many reasons why we use our smart phones on a daily basis. For some, they use it to get work done, for others they use it to play video games. And I know that it is hard to believe but some people even use them to make telephone calls. But for most people, the number one application that gets used on the smart phone is the music player. Even though you have the ability to play video, it is hard to do that if you are actually walking. Listening to music is the one piece of entertainment that you can enjoy while you yourself are on the go and not in a vehicle. You may have a large library of music at your disposal in your Android phone but there is a good chance that you are going to want to listen to music that is not already on the device. There are several applications that will help you do that.
These applications that we will talk about will stream music to your Android phone. Some of the music comes from online radio stations and some of the applications will allow you to listen to music from radio stations that are actually on the air. One such application that will allow you to do this is known as the iHeartRadio app. It will allow you to play over 400 local radio stations over the phone. This app is great if you miss the sounds of your local DJ spinning records. It is even better when the stations that are featured are in your area. This means that you do not have to be in the car or at home to listen to what they are spinning.
Another app that allows you to listen to the radio while you are on the go is known as Pandora. Pandora is one of the best streaming applications around. They have been highly reviewed and they seem to have a high quality product. Once you create a log in and listen to the station long enough it will start to learn your listening pleasures. Now instead of telling Pandora what you would like to listen to, it will tell you what it thinks that you would like. If you are serious about your streaming music then the Pandora app for the android is one that you should really check out.
Another app that receives very good reviews is the simply named the Android Radio app. This app is simple for people to use. You pick through the menu for the type of music that you want to listen to and you select the station that you want to hear. There are no special features and extras that you have to worry about. Just click and listen. If you are a person that just wants to listen to music without all of the fluff of the other applications, then this is the one for you.
Android based phones are really good for people who want to listen to music while they are on the go. There are more applications than what we have listed here that you can listen to. Just go through and pick one. Then you can enjoy your commute with the sounds of good music.
