Music Streaming Header

Everyone knows about Pandora's music streaming app. During your Lake Norman commute, you might want something a little different from Pandora's algorithms and stations. That's where the rest of these iOS and Android music streaming apps come into play. Get the music you want in both free and paid versions, and your commute will melt away, as you listen to new music and your old favorites.

Spotify

Spotify

Download the Spotify app for free on Android and iOS. Spotify has a huge library of music, and it even offers a pretty significant collection of classical literature in audiobook form. In the free mobile version, you can add artists, albums, and playlists to your music collection, then play them for free on shuffle. In the premium subscription, you can play any song, anytime, listen without ads, and save music for offline listening.

iHeartRadio

iHeartRadio

Get radio stations from around the country with the iHeartRadio app, available on iOS and Android. It has AM and FM radio stations from across the country, which means you could be listening to a New York City station during your Lake Norman commute. Plus, you can create a custom radio station with a thumbs-up and thumbs-down feature that remembers your favorite songs.

Tidal

Tidal

Free to download on Android and iOS, Tidal is a music streaming app offering high fidelity sound quality. They have more than 40 million tracks in their catalog, recommendations based on the music you love, and playlists music journalists created that will introduce you to some great new music. You can also mark tracks, artists, playlists, and albums as "favorites" and start your own music collection. A Premium subscription is $12.99 a month and a HiFi subscription is $25.99 a month.

Amazon Prime Music

Amazon Prime Music

Download the Amazon Music with Prime Music app to your iPhone or Android phone for free. You don't have to be a member of Amazon Prime to enjoy this app, either. Amazon Music lets you stream from your cloud-based music library or straight from your device. Prime members can create ad-free stations by artist or genre, and you can skip as many times as you want.

Apple Music

Apple Music

Despite the name, Apple Music isn't only available on iOS devices. Android users can download the Apple Music app for free. Start with a three-month trial, which gives you access to Apple's catalog of 30 million songs. Once you start listening, Apple Music experts will create lists of recommendations for you. They also offer radio options; you can listen to artist interviews on Beats 1 or tap into radio stations that Apple Music editors curated. After your trial ends, Apple Music is $9.99 a month.

Make sure you create your playlists and find your favorite radio stations before you put your car in gear, so you can concentrate on the road while your music plays in the background. You'll be excited to hop in the car and begin your commute every morning once you start streaming great new music with one (or all!) of these fantastic apps.
