|Bottom line|| |
Xbox Music feels more like a first foray into music streaming rather than a finished product; it's functional, but it needs more features to compare with established apps like Spotify.
The best free streaming-radio app on the market, iHeartRadio takes some of (but not all) the best features from TuneIn Radio Pro and combines them with Pandora-like functionality.
With its enormous catalog of on-demand streaming music and its built-in social features for discovering new tunes, Spotify is an absolute must-have for audiophiles and casual listeners alike. But free users, beware of intermittent eardrum-piercing ads.
With its impressive menu of listening options (particularly for premium subscribers), Slacker Radio is one of the best streaming-music apps on the market.
