Cool Looking for free music? Here are your legal options

A lot of people ask about "free mp3 download" apps and 90% of those fall under a legal grey area (if not being downright illegal).

So I thought it helpful to show people they can still get good music without breaking the law or resorting to dangerous* and illegal means.

* some of the free mp3 download apps have been known to include malware

So here are ways to stream, share, and store music that are legal
(to the best of my knowledge)**


Google Music



Google Music China



Amazon MP3




iTunes
- (if you have to use an Apple product... )



Spotify
- (free & paid options for download/streaming)



Pandora




Slacker




Audiogalaxy




Last.fm -
(playlists/scrobbling, social music discovery)



Grooveshark
/ Tinyshark


Caution: May not end up being legal. From what I know they wanted to be legit, but they are being sued by the RIAA.

Also, Grooveshark is a service, Tinyshark is an Android app from a different company/developer used to listen to Grooveshark. Grooveshark's original app was removed from the Android Market by Google in April 2011.


Rhapsody




Jango




Digitally Imported




TuneIn




MixTape.me
- ( Playlist sharing, social discovery)



BlueMuze
(music & playlist sharing via bluetooth & WiFi)
* full disclosure: this is my app




Rdio




Datpiff




RingDroid
- (Makes ringtones from songs on your phone, open-source)




Mog
- (Music on demand)



Jamendo - (Royalty-free music)



Audials - (some purchase-able music, some radio)



Live365 - (user DJ'd radio)


etree.org - (Artist approved trading)



Your local library

You can often borrow music from your local library, and discover some great stuff in the process.

I know with roms you have to have a physical copy and then it's OK. Does this apply to music too?

From what I understand of the law (US law), If you have purchased a CD, then you are allowed to rip the music from it and use the mp3s on any device you own.* This is called format shifting and is perfectly legal.* In some countries like the UK (I think) format shifting is not legal.

When you give a copy to someone else you (may) be breaking the law.

And if you want to make your on music ringtones, may I suggest ripping your tracks off your CD that you bought and upload your .mp3 to a site called MakeOwnRingtone.com

You can edit the track to what part of the song you want as your ringtone and download it onto your cellphone!

Ringdroid works pretty well for that as well for just making ringtones on your phone without having to upload

Once I've made my ringtones, I uploaded them to a site called Mabilo.com which also has an Android App when you can download many other ringtones including your own.

Default Local libraries

You might want to cehck with your local libraries. Some have some type of subscription service for their members that allow them x number of music downloads a month. Ours has something like this where we can donwload up to three selections a month for free. I realize that isn't much but my wife has been doing this for a year which translates to 36 new songs. I am not sure how widespread this is but it is something our library does.

I think that some on the original list are US only, namely Google Music, Amazon MP3, Pandora, Rdio, Slacker and MOG.

So I'd like to add one to the list, for the benefit of AF members who are in Mainland China, like me.
Google China Music:
Google China Music(in Chinese)

Free legal streaming and MP3 downloads. It's only available in the PRC, not including HK, Macao and the rest of the world. Has a lot of western music as well as Chinese music. I use it a lot.

Just thought I'd add that Spotify is now offering 6 months of free unlimited music after which you either become a paid subscriber or are kicked to an ad supported version with a 10 hour a month limit.

I am not sure however if the free 6 months includes the ability to stream from your smartphones.

Being a paid subscriber myself, I can say that Spotify is awesome. The phone app can be buggy, but it's still relatively new. I'm sure once it's been revised a few times it should only get better. $10 a month is a pittance if you buy music on the regular. Just add a new playlist each month. If Spotify were to charge me for all the music I have set up on my account, I would owe them 26 years of subscription fees.

Be warned, there are artists and labels that have still yet to reach a deal with spotify. So be sure to search their catalog beforehand. My personal music tastes made me go with Spotify over MOG, Rhapsody, etc..

Default Hip Hop Music

Just thought I'd include that Spotify presenting 6 several weeks of free limitless music after which it you can either be a compensated customer or are started for an ad supported version having a 10 hour per month limit.

I don't know if however the free 6 several weeks includes a chance to stream out of your mobile phones.

As being a compensated customer myself, I'm able to state that Spotify rocks !. The telephone application could be buggy, but it is still relatively recent. I am sure once it has been modified a couple of occasions it will only improve. $10 per month is really a pittance if you purchase music around the regular. Just give a new playlist every month. If Spotify would charge me for the music I've set on my account, I'd owe them 26 many years of subscription costs.

Be cautioned, you will find artists and labels which have still yet to achieve an offer with spotify. So make sure to search their catalog in advance. My own music tastes helped me opt for Spotify over MOG, Rhapsody, etc..

Try radiotracker! I use it for gathering techno music, which is hard as hell to find. There's free mp3 editors to cut and add fade in and fade outs as well.

I've used it on windows (Which it was designed for) andlinux under 'wine'

Audials Radiotracker 9 - Target exactly the music you want on Internet radio and record it in MP3 format. Enjoy any radio station or podcast

There's nothing illegal about "Recording" music

I'll take a look -- not sure how legal this is but seems like it should be OK

I had issues with Ringdroid. Some of my ringtones would not get a good sound to them. I assumed it was because Its using the phones limited resources and the phone was incapable of the better sound (EVO 4G) but others said they have great success with this. I just use Audacity and upload them to the phone. I find that easiest for me. Besides the computer has a lot more resources than my phone

You spent a lot of time putting this list together. I hope Forum members will take note ( so to speak) and use these resources, thus staying out of trouble.

You could try radio tracker, you can record over a dozen internet stations at once. The you can get mp3directcut (Which is legally free) to add fade in/fade out points. Or you can cut tracks out of an extra long recording and so on. I've discoverd a lot of music this way.

Or you can try polderbits. It records off of your sound card as .wav format and can be saved in high quality mp3 format. Just disable ALL sounds on your computer! Imagine, anything you can listen to in high quality, you can capture it. There's nothing wrong with RECORDING for personal use.

You take it from there! Lol

i use an app ever since Android Eclair 2.1, and it's no longer in the Play Store, but the APK can still be found online on many sites. it's ad-supported in-app and has a small footprint on internal memory

As far as I know this is not a legal way to get music, it is also (IMHO) dangerous. Thos types of apps are know for invasive advertising and possible malware. They are removed from the Play store for very good reason.

I have never had any trouble with it. And there are dozens just like it on the play store. Free music download and mp3 music download pro are two examples. And the ads are no more invasive than the Go Launcher ads...they're banners and only exist on the app itself.

It may be hard to detect, or the malware may not affect your device. Some malware is specific to working with certain root exploits that are patched on many phones. Or the author pulled the app from the market for some reason.

Either way, the app was removed from the Play Store and the OP is wishing to discuss music apps that do not include apps that download from an unknown source. That issue is just compounded by the fact that a user has to search and sideload the APK.

They tend to violate copyright laws for media piracy.

Google regularly removes these sorts of apps for that reason.

7digital United Kingdom | High quality DRM-free MP3 music downloads(UK) have free MP3s regularly, usually samples of new artists.

for creating ringtones from your own music, Audacity is hard to beat.
But you'll need the LAME encoder plugin to export in MP3 format.

There is also a huge range of effects and sound processing plugins available, A selection of which are included in the Audacity download.

For the 4th time typing this out:
Great list.

I've gone through a bunch of it looking for HTML5 compatible streaming audio/radio, and so far GrooveShark's the only option for devices that cannot register in the PlayStore.

Everything else is expecting a PlayStore install process or a Flash compatible browser.

If anyone finds more options for streaming playback for HTML5 or non-registered Android devices, please reply or send me a PM.

Thanks!

I also suggest checking out Emusic.com. They have free tracks to download and a subscription service as well. They also have an app in the Play store. I'm a long time subscriber but just saw that they have the app..Off to download it to my phone and check out what can be done with it.

Cheers!!

I'm always leery of 'Signup for free' offers. 80% of the time I am just ruining a perfectly good fake email account on those..

I tried to stream some songs but the status bar kept saying 'purchase'.

So it may be a good suggestion as a general music app/site, but I'm still searching my brains out for an alternative to Groove Shark (they are involved in some massive legal fuss that doesn't bode well for their future) for streaming audio without app support.

I suppose if someone on the forums with some rep was to point out a known-good APK, I could try that route as well, but I want to be the one rooting my droid, not some teenager in China.

Google Music China is no longer operating. Google pulled the plug on it late last year. Probably because it couldn't compete with Baidu Music. Might be worth updating the OP, or I will do it?
