Every week, our staff will handpick an app from the past two weeks that we believe is a must-download for your iPhone or iPad. These apps will always be from various categories, but they are chosen because our own staff members love it and have been using them daily. So here are this week’s picks! Enjoy!
Still haven’t found the perfect streaming music service for your needs? Then you will want to give our App of the Week a spin: Beats Music.
This slick designed app looks amazing on your iPhone, and is quite intuitive to use. It’s a paid subscription service, starting at $9.99 a month, but you get a free 7-day trial to check out the service for yourself. And if you’re an AT&T Family Plan subscriber, you get up to three months for free, and you can also get up to five Beats Music accounts for a subsidized price of $14.99 on your AT&T phone bill.
When you sign up for Beats Music, the app will have you tell it what genres and artists you like, love, and hate. Based on these decisions, the app will have a good idea of what music to start you off with, and as you like or dislike songs and albums, it will become more tailored to suit your tastes.
Users can create their own playlists from within the app, and save music for offline listening as long as they have enough space for it. Audio quality is pretty good for streaming, the choices are pretty solid with over 20 million tracks available. You can manually search for tunes, pick from top lists based on your tastes, or even get curated content from the experts.
The real magic behind Beats Music is The Sentence feature, which is like Mad Libs for getting music for your current mood. Just fill in the four sections, and Beats Music will start playing the perfect tunes for whatever you feel like listening to at the moment. During our use, we found these mixes to be pretty accurate.
We’ve been putting Beats Music to the test for the past few days, and so far, we like what we see. It’s recommended to take advantage of the free trial to see if it will fit your needs in a music streaming service. You can get it for your iPhone for free in the App Store.
