There is no shortage of music apps available, and many of them are free. I seem to try just about every one I find because, well, I love music and I am always on the hunt for these programs. I use apps to help clean up my library, I use special players, I backup music to Google Music and more.
My latest find is called MP3Jam. It is a simple but surprisingly capable free tool for locating and downloading anything from individual songs to entire albums.
If you are anything like me then you have a large computer-based collection of music and that library is, at least partially, a mess. Over the years I have tried countless solutions to fix that mess, but one I have long heard about, but not tried is MediaMonkey. This app does more than just attempt to clean up your library — it also serves as a player, streams to DLNA devices on your network and can sync with mobile devices.
In fact, the app boasts a long list of features — manage media, identify tracks, tag, organize and rename, automatic library updates, download music and podcasts, sync and backup with mobile devices, record and convert, burn, play and stream to devices.
The radio is a very important medium for me. It gives me the ability to quickly receive my daily dose of entertainment, music and news at the same time. And the best part about the radio is that you have such a wide choice on what you would like to listen to. However, most built in radio apps are poor and that’s why I use TuneIn Radio on every mobile device I own.
First discovering the app on my Nexus 7 I soon downloaded TuneIn on my Windows Phone too. Since that point I’ve been using the app everyday while on transport or waiting for lessons to begin. Read on to find out how great TuneIn Radio can be on your Windows device!
For those who have a Windows Phone handset produced by Nokia, you likely are aware there is a Nokia suite of apps that the device maker has created specifically for its customers. The suite includes Music, Maps, Drive and Transit. Now the Finnish company is starting to make some of its apps available for Windows 8.
Previously, Nokia had supported Windows for backing up your phone via copying your contacts, calendar and photos from existing Nokia phones to the Microsoft SkyDrive service.
Recently Nokia Music rolled into the Windows Store with a brand new Metro, or Modern UI, style app that installs right to the new Windows 8 Start screen. The new app also will work on the Windows RT platform, which is the ARM-based version of the new operating system that powers such devices as the Surface tablet.
Spotify is an application which has seen massive success across the globe with both its desktop and mobile versions. Spotify, for those who haven’t heard of it, is a database of millions of songs which can be listened to free of charge. The service is also available in subscription services giving users access to much more. However, another service which has stared to see massive growth, especially in America, is Rdio.
Similar to Spotify, Rdio has a desktop and mobile form factor. However, today I’ll be mainly focusing on the mobile version of the application. This, in my opinion, is far better than Spotify’s alternative and is well worth a thorough review.

One thing everyone has in common is music. You may have your favorite genre and bands but you almost always have your music. I always don’t have the time to download the songs I want and load it in my device. Come on, who has the time for that? And when I do, there isn’t a lot of memory left for me for other stuff like files and apps.
This is where Amazing Music gets the spotlight. With this app, you can listen to awesome music on the go and it doesn’t take up much memory space and also, you get to listen to the latest trending music. Well, isn’t that amazing? Now, let us dig in to the app and see what else it offers.
Media consumption is likely a large part of your day-to-day activities. The method by which this media is consumed varies depending on personal preference. Local media libraries are often consumed and managed via a media player. Unfortunately, however, the default media player inside of Windows is often considered to be sub-par when compared to some of the feature-rich, well-polished, and free alternatives that are currently available.
If you are not satisfied with your current media player, I have compiled a list of my top six favorite media players that are available for Windows.
Apple released the highly anticipated update for iTunes December last year, and the redesign has caused much controversy around the Globe. But what do we think at AppStorm?
I have had enough of talking about video, TV and Media Center-type stuff for the moment. It is time to move to the other side of the spectrum — music. It seems like, for many of us, our music library is in a more or less constant state of disarray. If you are, like me, always looking for a solution to organize it, and prefer free, then there are several options available out there.
However, my favorite over the past few years has proven to be MP3Tag. Over the time I have used this, it has proven to be the simplest, but also the best, solution of the many I have tested and thrown away, some of them I even paid before and then hated!
