Pandora Radio is one of the most downloaded free apps from the App Store because it’s simple and works incredibly well. Pandora sets itself apart from other Internet radio apps because it compiles customized playlists based on the music you like. Pandora’s recommendations are usually spot-on, and I find it very easy to navigate. Unfortunately, you’re limited to 40 hours of free music per month (it costs $0.99 to upgrade to unlimited usage for 1 month, up to $4.99), and you can only skip up to six songs per hour and 12 songs per day.

iTunes Radio

iTunes Radio is Apple’s answer to Pandora: a streaming, radio-style music service that builds its playlists based on the songs or artists a user likes. While it’s not as refined as Pandora (which isn’t surprising; Pandora’s had years to perfect its offering), it’s built into iTunes and iOS, is tightly integrated with the iTunes, and provides tons of great music for free. If you subscribe to iTunes Match, it’s ad-free.

4. Musixmatch Music Player App For iPhone

Musixmatch is the world’s largest lyrics catalog, giving you synchronized song lyrics with multilingual translations for all your music. The free music app for iPhone XS/XR allows people to sync lyrics up with their songs so they line up really well when you listen to it. There was a song I was listening to and the lyrics were synced terribly so I decided that I would sync them so they would not be terrible. I did this and then when I listened to the song again the lyrics were synced well, the way I did it. If I tried to listen again the lyrics went back to the way they were synced before as if I never synced them. I did not even receive any points as if I had never even synced. I tried it again with still no such luck. Why would they give me this feature if they won’t let me use it. Or even worse, pretend they will let me use it but then destroy my work.
