Music iPhone Apps Review

Why iPhone Music Apps?

When considering an iPhone music app, look for an easy-to-use program. iTunes offers nearly 80 iPhone music apps that provide everything from Native American Flute playing to Top 100 lists to Guitar Tablature. Many choices and features are available; some apps are functional and others are just fun.

All programs utilize the trendsetting touchscreen features of the iPhone and iPod Touch and some even allow you to play simulated instruments through the screen, such as flutes, pianos and drums. Other programs are meant for music instruction teaching music reading skills, ear training, rhythm and timing.

Numerous programs are also just for music listening, such as radio programs, Christmas music, mood music or ways to organize and play your music, such as Zones and iZone, which let you access your music through your home’s Wi-Fi connection.

Music iPhone Apps: What to Look For

Regardless of the type of iPhone app you decide to use, it should be easy to use, with logical button placement, and both embedded and online help and support. You may even find that several iPhone apps offer similar functions, so try out a few before you decide which one you like best.

Features
Apple offers many types of iPhone music apps through iTunes for the iPhone and for the iPod touch. The features you want will depend on the type of app you are interested in.

If you are looking for an iPhone app to help you find new music or if you want to listen to popular new releases, you may want to look for a “Top 100” type program that supports the kinds of music you enjoy. There are also “radio” type programs that can help you organize your favorite radio stations. Since there are several of these types of programs available, you can compare a few to see which one offers the features you are looking for.

There are also many types of apps that can help you play music, such as guitar tuners, pitch to note type sound analyzers, metronomes and more. These helpful iPhone music apps should be easy to use and above all, useful.

Many iPhone music apps actually play music; you can find apps that play flutes, drums, harmonica and even bowls. These apps are fun and very affordable, often just 99 cents, so they are worth trying out and can satisfy whatever kind of musical whim you may have.

Interface
All iPhone apps should be easy to use and should work well with the iPhone or iPod touch’s exclusive interactive screen. However, some are easier to use than others, so you may want to test a few similar programs out before you decide which one is right for you.

Graphics
iPhone music app graphics should be clear and concise. They should make reading music and interacting with the screen easy and logical. Graphics should also load quickly and function well without any glitches.

Stability
Apps that have been available for a while should be fairly stable. The developers contact information is available for you to report errors, so they can fix them before the next update.

Program Size
Most iPhone music apps are extremely small files, many under a MB. So you should not have to worry about downloading most of these apps, unless you are really close to running out of memory space on your iPhone or iPod touch.
