Personalize Your Music With These Great Apps

Streaming music is huge. Millions of listeners are now turning to music streaming instead of listening to the radio. These awesome apps allow you to customize your own listening experience by giving songs you like a 'thumbs up' and those you don't a 'thumbs down'. That way you hear more of what you want to hear.

Pandora

Pandora Media, Inc.

A free music and radio app that learns from what you like

Pandora is a free music and radio option that allows you to create radio stations based around the artists and songs you like. You can customize your stations even further by voting up or down the songs that play. It has a good library of tunes, but not as comprehensive as some of the other options available.

LiveXLive

Slacker, Inc.

LiveXLive Powered by Slacker, formerly Slacker Radio, is a totally reimagined music streaming app that lets you listen to your favorite music and watch live streaming performances for free, all in one place

Slacker only has about 10 million songs compared to the 14-15 million of a Mog or Spotify. However, Slacker does claim to have more than 10 times as many songs as Pandora. It also has some distinct advantages over the top apps on this list. For example, Slacker has a free version, which works on mobile devices. It also features more than music, with comedy, news, and sports stations. A Slacker Premium membership adds on-demand music features to Slacker's Internet radio. These on-demand features are not as robust as those of other apps; I had to delve two to three levels into the menu just to delete a playlist. You also cannot scan through parts of a song. Overall though, Slacker has some nice features and the prospect of combining on-demand music with an excellent personal radio service may be enough to justify the $9.99/month cost of Slacker Premium for some.

DEEZER SA

You can download the Deezer app, but after I logged in with my Facebook account, I was informed that Deezer's music services are not yet available in the United States. It's a shame, since Deezer has over 15 million licensed tracks and 30,000 radio channels. We'll hopefully see them soon.
