40 Music-Focused Phone Apps

From Music-Based Matchmaking Apps to Clever Cosmic Music Apps

— August 5, 2013 — Lifestyle
Music apps make our lives easier by delivering songs upon search. Some even make it more convenient for its users with already-compiled playlists. The music app industry has changed drastically since its commencement, because music is no longer searched by just title or genre, but by the mood it exudes or the subculture it represents. Music concierge systems distinguish songs by emotions, letting you choose what you literally feel like listening to.

Music apps are getting evermore creative visually, too. The Planetary iPad app by Bloom Studio is worth noting. Its unique concept symbolizes music in terms of astrology; albums are grouped into planets, artists as stars and singles as moons. Visually, the app looks galactic. The size of each cosmic rock varies depending on how many clicks they've had.
