iPhone, with the right set of applications and services, a convenient device for listening to music. iPhone has replaced the iPod and opens up many possibilities for those who listen to music on the phone. App Store, besides Spotify and Pandora, there are dozens of apps that recognize songs, lyrics, and even the meaning of songs. Users can listen to the radio and rate other members' playlists.
Below are ten of the most useful apps for listening to music on iPhone.
Shazam is an app every music fan should download. Yes, Siri can recognize songs too, but the Shazam app can do a lot more. With it, song recognition occurs instantly.
The app can be configured so that every song it finds is automatically added to the Apple Music playlist. Once the song is recognized, you can preview the lyrics, buy it, or play it right in the app if you're connected to your Spotify account. Auto Shazam listens to songs even when the app is closed. This is a great way to get to know every song that is played in the cafe.
Musixmatch is the best lyrics app for iPhone. The application has a user-friendly interface and a huge collection of texts. You won't find this in Apple Music.
Another nice feature of Musixmatch is the widget. When you have a song playing, or when you recognize it, the widget will immediately show its lyrics. So you can start singing along without having to unlock your phone.
Musixmatch – to find lyrics, Genius – to understand them. Genius will not be able to show lyrics when the song is playing. The application is aimed at understanding the meaning of the songs.
