Legal ways to get music online for your mobile phones


Mobile phones have developed and evolved into such powerful machines that it is now packed full of features and capabilities that used to be handled by separate devices. For example, many mobile phone owners have ditched their dedicated digital audio players and now use their phones to listen to music instead.

There are many sources online to get music that you can then download to your mobile phone. We’re not talking about illegal means of getting files but rather the legal sources for getting music. Below are some of the best sources for getting legal music files online:

Rhapsody

One of the biggest and fastest growing online music service is Rhapsody. The online service boasts of millions of users and offers a wide array of music from different genres. The Rhapsody service allows you to download playlists, full albums and singles directly on to your mobile phone through its official apps (available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone). As an additional service – and one that is gaining a lot of popularity, Rhapsody compatible equipment like DVRs, home audio systems, TVs and audio players can access Rhapsody’s service. This truly frees up music and allows you to enjoy it in different venues.

Bearshare

Bearshare is a peer-to-peer music application that allows you to download completely legal music files. Bearshare.com’s free music downloads are some of the most diverse online. Fans of different music genres will definitely have something to enjoy through the Bearshare service.

Spotify

Another popular music service is Spotify. The service, which originated in Europe, is one of the most popular services around. Much like Rhapsody, it is a music service where you can listen to music streamed to your device of choice. There is also an option to download the music so you can listen to it when you are not connected to the internet. Spotify also has Spotify Radio, which is a cool feature that allows you to discover more new music.

Pandora

Pandora is another music service that offers users a way to discover more music based on a single song, artist or genre. Your initial “seed” will be used by Pandora to find other songs that have the same musical qualities as the one you suggested. Your initial seed is fed through the service’s proprietary Music Genome Project, which is an extremely exhaustive analysis of music.

You can create various stations based on those suggestions, which you can then listen to on your mobile phone.
