Free Music Download - App Review



Downloading music for free, especially legally, seems an excellent idea for an App.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
There are a number of buttons on the home screen which give you access to various functions:


Browser
This is similar to the naive Safari iOS browser. You either pick a bookmark which has already been stored for you, or enter a url that contains downloadable music files.

Most websites have not been optimised for use on an iOS device, which means that it can be a little difficult navigating around (especially on an iPhone or iPod).

Once you have found what you are looking for download the track(s) you want.

Downloads
Having followed the instructions above, you will now have a red badge indicating the number of tracks waiting to be downloaded.

Player
This automatically creates three playlists for you: all songs, recently played, and recently added.

In order to sync new tracks with iTunes, you will need to access your iOS device through your PC and copy the files.

Settings
This is where you can opt for the browser to prevent redirects that open external Apps, as well as synchronising music files

More Apps
No prizes for guessing what this does!

Cost
The App is free and supported by advertisements, which appear at the top of the screen. You obviously need to be careful about data download if you are not on Wi-Fi, or an all-inclusive plan.

Indispensability
If you're in the lookout for something unusual then, this is a great way to find it.

Dependability
Songs can take a while to play, or more than one attempt. This is not necessarily a reflection on the App itself but will detract from your overall experience. The App supports mp3, mp4, m4a, wav, and aif files.

Security
Just remain aware that you are downloading files; it is always possible that some ill-intentioned person will attempt to share a virus. I would stress that there was no evidence of this during testing, merely being very cautious.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Would earn a higher score with more music availability.

  1. Music Noow is a non-commercial, ad-free site which features text obtained from Gutenberg, read, recorded and released for the public’s listening pleasure. You can even volunteer to read, or just download to listen from LibriVox’s acoustical library of good books.
