    So, I either suck at the search function or a thread about this specifically does not exist (probably the former, sorry in advance if thats the case). I currently use Music Wizard to download Mp3's to my phone, and it works well but doesn't have much in the way of new releases and a lot of the results have strange characters in the titles (some chinese looking, others I have no idea).

    What do you use? Is there an awesome app out there for this? I have no issue paying for a quality app...

    Do you know if you pay for the service or per mp3?

    You pay per MP3, the app and service are free. Most songs are 99 cents each, you get a better deal if you buy the whole album as they are $7.99 or less most often and have more than 8 songs usually.

    Also, with Amazon MP3, you get a "normal" mp3 file. No DRM or anything like that. I have found it very useful.

    Have you tried "MP3 Download" by "Neferty Solutions"? Works better than Music Wizard and It's free...

    You can also try Music Junk. Not in the Market but the .apk is discoverable via Google. Of course, the music downloads are illegal since no one is being paid.

    For me, by far, this is the best one out there. It will give you the bit rate and length of song, so you don't accidentally download a bunch of ringtones like on other mp3 downloaders.

    Try off market app tubemate...it has the option to DL youtube clips in different resolutions or as mp3. although when you download as mp3 it wont convert just renames filetype but still plays as mp3 on android device. i only use this because youtube practically has the biggest database of music.

    Google would prefer taking a hands-off approach as long as they aren't malware. But for sure these methods of obtaining music ARE illegal. The apps themselves? Hard to say. But the downloading the users do is most certainly illegal (except public domain stuff of course).

    However I do agree with "to each their own" and I'm not here to judge anyone or any app in particular, just to give some general tips that our forum users may find helpful. :)

    Download, install and try out GTunes. You can download all the music and search everything you want to. AND even transfer the music you download to your computer and still have the MP3's.
