Today, we can listen to music on our Android and iOS devices in several ways. If we want, we can go to YouTube and listen to our favorite music there. But YouTube has its limitations, just like any other Internet server or tool.

What if you want to download your favorite songs currently or from some fruitful life stage or a beloved movie or video game you played or bet on platforms supporting Ethereum by the link to an Android and/or iOS device? Can you do it and if so, how? In the rest of this article, we’ll tell you more about how you can download music to your own Android and/or iOS devices and listen to it whenever you want!

One note: some of these apps will require you to enable installation from unknown sources within your device.

# 1 Fildo (Android)

There are two different versions of the Fildo app: one is the “Music Player” in the Play Store, but that won’t bring you the MP3 downloader or download capability, which is the most important thing here. Getting the APK from the legitimate Fildo website will give you access to the edition of Fildo that enables free music downloads.

Once you have that, use the app’s search to find the specific songs or albums you want to search for. You can also use the various “Top” charts from the various music sites that the app integrates with if you want to explore hits.

Search for the album or song you want, press the “+” icon in the upper right corner, then select the appropriate option to download music, create a playlist, or listen. The app also lets you create playlists and gives you access to lyrics. You’re able to locate the tunes you download even if you don’t have the app because they are saved to the internal storage of your device.

# 2 Audiomack (Android & iOS)

If you want to know that the music you download won’t infringe copyright and are also open to checking out new talent in the Hip-Hop, Electronic, and Reggae genres, give Audiomack a try.

This app gives a platform to artists without official distribution, while still having a content filtering system in place to ensure that the stuff on it’s of good quality. This goodwill project has already landed hip-hop stars like T-Wayne, Fetty Wap, and Migos to record deals, and gives you the chance to help discover the next big star.

# 3 YMusic (Android)

With YMusic, one of the more tasteful and professional-looking music download apps, you can listen to any clip from YouTube as an audio file and even have it run in the background on your phone. The cool thing here is that you can also download videos as audio files.

You have the option to download them in M4A and MP3 formats, and it has a great library user interface that subsequently allows you to manage your music files just like you would in a music player app. Downloaded songs are saved on your phone, so you can easily access them through your favorite music player.

YMusic is perhaps the most practical and dependable alternative on this list, despite the fact you have to obtain it elsewhere than the Play Store. For these reasons, the application has received very high ratings from many users. Why not when it’s top quality?

# 4 NewPipe (Android)

NewPipe is another app that gets the job done when it comes to downloading music. It’s open source and is constantly being improved. It also has support for SoundCloud, MediaCCC, Bandcamp, and FramaTube downloads (all currently in beta).

By default, the app opens as the YouTube interface. Simply select the video you want to download, then click the download icon in the top right corner and choose whether you want to download it as video or audio and in which format you want it.

Tap the menu symbol in the upper left edge, then the large red “NewPipe” icon at the top, and then choose SoundCloud or Bandcamp as your new service of choice.

# 5 GTunes Music Downloader (Android)

GTunes is another app you’ll need to download from the Play Store that searches several major music download domains for your queries, you’ll find millions of artists and songs across generations. The search options are pretty rudimentary, so this is best used if you know exactly what songs you’re looking for and just want to download and download them.

It’s not the best app for music discovery, so if music discovery is what you’re most interested in, you’d be best off choosing one of the other options on the list.

Additionally, GTunes has a built-in player and offers the ability to cut songs and set them as ringtones. It’s all pretty basic stuff, but it makes an impression and makes for one great package.

# 6 SONGily (Android)

The free version of SONGily is ad-supported and the first thing to say is that this app has access to a great amount of music, new and old, from artists both mainstream and obscure, depending on your tastes you’ll be able to find anything here.

Next to each song you find, you’ll see options to play and download the songs you’re listening to, and they recently added a feature that lets you download videos as well. It’s exactly the kind of app that we can imagine Google doesn’t like too much, so don’t be too surprised if it disappears from the Play Store, if it hasn’t already.

# 7 TubeMate (Android)

The finest apps for downloading free music occasionally aren’t even intended for that use. You can save videos from YouTube in a variety of formats, which includes audio-only, with the program TubeMate.

You undoubtedly already know that YouTube serves as one of the finest locations to listen to music, and now that TubeMate is available, it’s additionally one of the finest places to download music. TubeMate is available for download through the official website (Google doesn’t permit it on the Play Store, most likely due to YouTube interference).

You’ll also be asked to install MP3 Video Converter, which works in tandem with TubeMate to help convert videos to audio when you attempt to download the clips as audio (M4A or MP3).

Why Aren’t There More iOS Apps Listed?

Based on Apple’s App Store guidelines, downloading videos from websites such as YouTube/Facebook/Dailymotion is prohibited. At the same time, some of the Android apps included in the list are in conflict with Google.

For example, NewPipe accesses YouTube without using an API or serving ads. In short, Android as a platform is much more “relaxed” about these things, users have a greater degree of freedom, which is actually one of the main reasons why there are significantly more Android apps on this list.
