The best free music download apps for Android and iOS

The best free music download apps for Android and iOS

Downloading music seems to be going the way of the dodo, with streaming services like Spotify and Deezer taking over the helm. Still, you might be interested in some ways to download some tunes for free to have on you when you're offline. So, here we've listed some of the best apps to help you do that (legally).

These apps allow you to download songs (if they carry those tunes) for free. However, you should remember that just because something's available as a free music download, this does not equate to it being legal as the owner of the song might not have given permission to the site to do so.

There are tons of free downloadable music content on pirate sites that are guaranteed to be illegal, so ensure that you have Creative Commons or Copyleft permission before downloading any MP3s.

Jamendo Music: Ad-free downloads and offline playback

Jamendo Music allows you to listen to and, more importantly, download over 600,000 tracks without having to fork out a cent. What's remarkable about this app is the fact that there are no nasty advertisements that get in your way. Whoever said that there is no such thing as a free lunch? A gem pops up once in a blue moon.

Simple, easy and completely free! / © Jamendo

In order to use this app, you will first need to sign up for an account. Once you have done that, you can play any song at any time of your convenience without any interruptions. The interface is simple and easy to use, with Jamendo has attracted a community of more than 3,500,000 users already - and the number continues to grow daily! They also offer royalty-free music for commercial use, now how about that for content creators?

Audials Play: Perfect for radio recording

Audials Play is one of the best ways for anyone to download music for free on an Android device, but it takes an unconventional approach. While you can download tons of music with the app, all of the music will be sourced from the radio itself. Clearly an out-of-the-box solution, don't you think so?

AndroidPIT best free android music apps audials
Record music from tens of thousands of radio stations with Radio Player by Audials / © NextPit

Audials Play offers a total of 100,000 radio stations in MP3 and AAC format, in addition to 260,000 podcasts that are sorted by country and genre. Audials Play can record whole broadcasts on-demand or save the stream with automatic song separation. You will be able to play the music or broadcast again at a later time, even when offline. There are no ads and in-app purchases to suffer from, and it also does not display any banner ads in the app. While it does not play commercials, there are some broadcasters who earn some money by playing radio advertising, so that is something to take note of. 

The user interface is simple enough that a couple of taps on the menu, and you can begin recording. This comprehensive, well-designed app boasts discovery features, EQ controls, and Chromecast support to boot. What's more, Audials Play allows you to schedule recordings ahead of time, letting you nab those tunes in advance. 

SoundCloud: Best for quality and quantity

SoundCloud is one of the best free music apps if you are more than happy to settle for lesser-known hits, as the app is popular with independent or more obscure artists who upload their tracks here so that anyone can play them for free. In addition, many tracks here are also available for download.

AndroidPIT best free android music apps soundcloud
SoundCloud is an amazing place to discover free music (for now) / © NextPit

Touted as the world's largest music and audio streaming platform, it has more than 200 million songs while offering a wide range of genres that cannot be found elsewhere, such as DJ sets, hand-curated playlists, remixes, and freestyles – apart from chart-topping albums and mainstream releases.

The free version mainly offers independent artists, and is perfect for music enthusiasts to discover new tunes or a new artist, or perhaps be part of an emerging genre. Popular artists will most probably put their songs up here behind a paywall, so don't be disappointed if your favorite artist does that!

SoundLoader: Quick and easy downloading

SoundLoader is an interesting addition to this list because doing so is easy. In fact, it takes just three steps to store your favorite tune on your handset. Just copy the song's URL, launch SoundLoader, paste the link in the dialog box and tap 'Download'. That's it!

SoundLoader offers hassle-free and fast downloads / © NextPit

There are no irritating pop-up ads to contend with, either. This app allows you to make a backup of your favorite songs in a jiffy. Do take note that it is your responsibility as the user to gain permission from the content creator before republishing, redistributing, or reusing downloaded audio.

SONGily: Simplicity personified

SONGily is a free app that offers a simple interface that lets you search and play or download the music that you want. This is assuming they carry the track, of course. Your mileage may vary depending on what you're looking for, and a famous song search might sometimes lead you to a bunch of covers, live versions, and remixes that are legal to download, as opposed to the official album version.

Nonetheless, there's still a ton of great tracks available for free, so it's well worth checking out. Do take note that this is an ad-supported app.

RockMyRun: Best for workouts

Claiming to be "the best running and fitness music app", RockMyRun allows you to download music for offline playback (you can also cache it). RockMyRun delivers DJ-mixed playlists for workout soundtracks and more.

AndroidPIT best free android music apps rockmyrun

You can match your BPM to your heart rate, filter the playlist length to match your workout time, or make use of the myBeat feature to automatically change the tunes so that it suits your current state. What's better than specially curated DJ mixes for your workout style?

Palco MP3: A very niche app

Palco MP3 is a free platform for independent Brazilian artists who want to share their talent with the rest of the world. Currently, there are more than 1.4 million songs from over 126,000 artists spread across 60 genres to get your booty moving. I understand that this is a very niche market, but anyone who wants to try something that is different from your everyday tunes would do well to give this a go.

AndroidPIT best free android music apps palco mp3

This app allows you to stream radio stations, curate playlists of your favorite tunes and download songs to your smartphone for offline listening. Whether you're looking to rock to some samba, bossa nova, hip-hop or electronica, Palco has it covered. So dive in and discover what Brazil has to offer.

Advanced Download Manager: Best for quick downloads

Advanced Download Manager lets you download up to five files simultaneously, including MP3s and MP4s. There is a wide array of settings that let you customize how you would want to download these files, including limiting the download speed (so that you need not chew through your monthly data quota quickly before you find a Wi-Fi hotspot), as well as the number of simultaneous downloads. Interestingly enough, the download speeds using Advanced Download Manager are commendable.

AndroidPIT best free android music apps automatic download manager

Searching for free musical tracks via the in-app browser can be a very convoluted experience, but once you have zoomed in on your target, downloading said track is a breeze. For those who are still running on Lollipop and Marshmallow, you can download songs directly to your SD card - assuming your smartphone supports expandable storage. This app has ads.

Anghami: Best for Arabic audio

Fancy some Arabic or African music? Anghami targets users from the MENA region (Middle East & North Africa), and offers a very similar service to Google Play Music. For those of us who don't live there, it's an excellent source of free Arabic and North African tunes.

The free service isn't unlimited, and you will experience some ads, but that's worth the entry price if you want to be more cultured and discover new music from a different continent.

Hungama Music: Best for Bollywood fans

If you're a fan of Indian music of different genres, Hungama's got you covered. This app has a huge database of songs (15 million and counting) including Bollywood numbers, songs in Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Tamil, and Telugu, among others.

A wide variety of Indian music at your disposal / © NextPit

Not only that, but it also has videos that can be downloaded and viewed using the integrated player. When you use the app for the first time, you'll get a certain amount of free downloads for free, so select your favorites carefully before considering whether you want to pay for anything more.

You can download the Hungama Music app from Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Loffee: Best for Lo-Fi Music

Loffee is a simple but wonderful little app for fans of lo-fi beats and laid-back music. This is the kind of stuff I'd listen to on a long train journey, or while lazing around the house on a Sunday afternoon. The different playlists are coffee-themed - such as Dark Roast, Fresh Grinds, and Roasted Beans.

loffee
Slick and effortlessly cool. Loffee is a Lo-Fi hit / © Google Play Store

The UI and artwork are slick. Everything about Loffee just seems effortlessly cool. You can pull up information on the art or music at any time during the shuffle and there are links to Facebook, SoundCloud, Instagram, and Twitter that let you explore further. Loffee works even when offline, and all music has been used with permissions from the artists.

Since you won't need an internet connection to stream music, this is perfect to enjoy while you are in the woods, spending time in your weekend cabin and away from civilization. It is also ideal for long flights or car journeys when cellular signal can be patchy and non-existent.

While paid apps like Spotify do offer the option for offline listening, why pay when you can get something for free?  After all, long gone are the days when we were proud of our MP3 collection, having amassed gigabytes upon gigabytes of them in carefully named folders. It is time to get on with the program.

Note from the editor: In a previous version of this list, Google Play Music was nominated as the best option for Android fans. However, as the service has been discontinued by Google, which now uses YouTube Music, we have removed that option from the list.

Which of these apps are you using right now?

    Hi, thanks for your kind sharing. I use a laptop more often than a phone, so I am used to using a desktop program called Joyoshare Screen Recorder to record and save a music file. I think one of its advantages is that it can save any part of the audio. I'm glad to share it here in case anyone would need it.

    "Youtube Downloader" is what I use. Found it on
    XDA developers site. I think it's on F-Droid too. You can download just the audio, in several formats. It's free, but I donate couple times a year. Regular updates & improvements. Developer is very quick to fix any issues. The app also has internal notice when updates are available too.

  • Arkane Elayne Mar 11, 2019 Link to comment

    All these apps are great but they look and feel old. Most of the times these app developers don't invest the required time in building a good UI/UX. I personally recommend Atomic Music Downloader (com.thecodrr.atomic). Its easy, fast and also has the most intuitive UI in the whole category. Good article by the way.


  • Patrick Brewer Jan 2, 2019 Link to comment

    Why would you want to install another app to your phone when you can just use website like ZippyAudio to download music?


    • Arkane Elayne Mar 11, 2019 Link to comment

      Because most websites are cluttered with ads (so are most apps) but if you can find a good Android app for downloading music; nothing beats that. You get good streaming support, a better interface, download history, easy management etc. But you are of course right that for only downloading music nothing beats websites. I personally use Atomic Music Downloader on Android Play Store; its fast, easy and relatively ad-free.


  • Rocabella Green Dec 14, 2018 Link to comment

    hey, nice information, I like your sharing, I got a tool called wonderfox free hd video converter factory, a good program for downloading music easily. Share with you.


  • Albin Foro Sep 17, 2018 Link to comment

    I always like to remind users that a lot of public library digital services include music apps available to residents and paid by city taxes, simply for picking up a library card: e.g. in Toronto the Play Store has apps for huge Naxos Classical and Jazz libraries (NML and NML Jazz), and Hoopla Digital indie music (also movies and comics). I also prefer the human-curated streamed "stations" on the former Sky service (now Radiotunes, JazzRadio, ClassicalRadio, etc.) to the algorithmic playstreams on Pandora, etc. which can be "trained" for half an hour or so but eventually drift into Tops-of-the-Pops to sell the trendy hits. Nice that this article has some specialized audience suggestions.


    • George W. Oct 6, 2018 Link to comment

      Great suggestion about the 2 Naxos apps. I love libraries and use their public computers to manipulate playlists. My mobile phone is my "jukebox". Music takes up a lot of my SD card storage space. Naxos is one of the best music services around. You can't download, but making the custom playlists are just as good.


  • Bhavesh Jun 29, 2018 Link to comment

    Really great article. Thanks for the sharing. All apps are good and normally I use Google play music app. But when I want to listen to Gujarati movie songs, folk songs, Classsical songs then I use Jalso App.


  • Akash Popat Jan 18, 2017 Link to comment

    Hi

    I would just like to suggest my own app for a addition in the list or a new list as I think my app is better then all the other apps in that category. You can download the app from theytd2.com and should judge for yourself. Hope you like it.

    Using an mp3 download site on the web like mp3dld.com has always been a much better option than using another app that has more features than one would ever need. If you just need music, its all you need.

    From what i have been reading alot of people are saying these apps are the best thing since sliced bread but all i keep installing is CRAP! I've noticed some I've had in the past that worked great have now followed suit. What happened? Nothing works! Im using an LG android and the only thing that does what it claims is spotify and pandora but we all know u cant listen to it offline and u cant customize a playlist without paying for premium. I tried 4shared and its not available in my country. As if i live in Antarctica. I live in murica! If anyone knows of an app that's not full of it please let me know. Im looking for one that u can save to your phone. One that u can listen to even if your phone service has been disconnected! I dont know about everyone else but im really tired of wasting my time and risking the well-being of my phone by installing shady apps bcuz none of the safe apps do what theyre suppose to.


    • tony zavala Oct 30, 2015 Link to comment

      You're probably gonna have to root your phone or get Getflix here on abroad pit. You can get a lifetime subscription for like 40$, and you'll be able to stream from just about any music or movie/video app for free and 4ever. Now I now it's a one time fee but you'll also be able to install it on 8 devices/computers, so technically if you know a few people that use, say netflix then you can somehow make you're money back or just bless them with the ultimate capability. Anyway there's also smart dns proxy but you now know the gist of it. A close friend of mine gets a kick out of making others think he hacked the site they're streaming from. Have fun.

    I hate torrents and such, you get trojans, incomplete files and more. I recently got a tip from a friend: Usenext is a service that legally offers tons of downloads in high speed (music, games, movies..) for a montly fee. BUT you can check the 14-day trial, load 300GB stuff for free and KEEP that no matter what. So say you download 10 days straight and then quit easy via your account on usenext and thats it.

    I personally like Soundloader for Soundcloud http://www.androidpit.com/en/android/market/apps/app/com.gruebeltech.soundloader2/soundloader-for-soundcloud which allows you to download music from soundcloud for offline listening. As many artists upload their work to Soundcloud for free themselves, it's piracy guilt free downloads!

    The artists make such a small margin on downloads, but they gain so much from the free sharing of their music and subsequent ticket sales. I don't necessarily think it's a bad idea for the artist or audience. Download the TED app http://www.androidpit.com/en/android/market/apps/app/com.ted.android/TED and check out the awesome video 'The art of asking' about music piracy pros and cons :)

      That's just you trying to make some excuses. Unless the author himself allowed free download, it's piracy. Period!

        that's true story. I wont try to accuse you but one of my theories is that black app stores can cancel revenue from your app store but since you dont give out music it wont matter you. (IMPORTANT NOTE: JUST A THEORY, I wont accuse anyone)

        @bojan seems we understand each other quite well since we know that we both like anime.

    I personally thinks that it's unethical to promote pirating music. Artists and musicians work as hard as app developers too. Just because they're in the different field doesn't mean we can ignore their rights.

      many times probably even harder.

    wait a sec, this reveals controversy.
    you can download music for free, for which you usually have to pay, which is piracy.
    one of you (Loie) said at the topic of alternate markets, about the topic why Blackmart wasnt in the list:
    "AndroidPIT doesn't support pirating apps, and only getting paid apps for free when the deal is officially closed with the developers themselves."
    so pirating apps is bad, but Music is okay, hm...

    but seriously, I dont want to attack anyone, it just caught my eyes and is irritating me...

      Read the disclaimer.

        might be true but still they dont list such methods for apps and similar things, and they are straight against it, which looks stupid when looking at this article even with the disclaimer.
