Best Apps for Music Lovers

Samsung

Don't be surprised if your friends lean in a little closer this year while you're listening to your Samsung Galaxy tablet or smartphone. With Samsung's Level™ headphones, earbuds and wireless speakers, combined with the hottest apps available in the industry, you can now get the best sound on the best tracks, with more choices in music than ever before.

Shazam

Shazam

If you hear a song you like, launch Shazam. Let Shazam listen in and, once it gets an audio fingerprint, Shazam can tell you the song's name and the artist. It doesn't take long for Shazam to identify a song. Often, it just has to listen for just one second. The app works in nightclubs, while you're in the car listening to the radio and even when you hear a song in the background of a TV show. This app is so accurate, it's hard to find a song it can't get a read on.

For an ad-free listening experience with access to exclusive features, upgrade to Shazam Encore.

Best Jazz Percussion

Best Jazz Percussion

Try your hand at a new beat with the Best Jazz Percussion app, a virtual drum kit that includes 14 realistic sounds, including a bass drum, snare drum, chimes and a hi hat. This fast-action drumming app supports multitouch so you can play with all of your fingers at once, or bring in a friend or two to play along with you. This is a great app for kids to help them gain new coordination skills too. Once you get your beat down, record your track to share with your friends.

AmpliTube Free

AmpliTube Free

Turn your smartphone into a mobile multi-effect processor for any electric guitar or bass guitar with the AmpliTube Free app. Simply connect your guitar to your smartphone, and this app gives you an entire rig right on your touchscreen.

The free version comes with a digital chromatic tuner and three stompbox effects—delay, noise and distortion—as well as a lead amp, speaker cabinet and two microphones. If you need additional effects, like a wah, flanger or fuzz, these and five other effects are available as in-app purchases.

Piano Master

Piano Master

You don't need to be a professional musician to enjoy playing your own music on your tablet or smartphone. Piano Master is a free game-based music app that turns your mobile device into a mini-piano. Follow the notes displayed on your touchscreen to play a variety of famous songs. The first 15 songs are free, with many more available in the app's premium version.

The app has several difficulty levels designed for children, novice piano players and even the musically proficient.
