A roundup of the top 5 iPhone apps for finding and downloading free music online.
The great thing about smartphones these days is that they’ve basically become portable computers that give users the ability to listen to and watch pretty much anything their desires whenever and wherever they want.
This means finding quality content is an ongoing need – especially the free kind – and it seems like music in particular.
The only difference is that you can’t share music, making music downloading far safer than on a desktop PC because one can’t be accused of distributing copyrighted material.
