One must have folder on your iPhone should be a a folder full with music apps. Now… there are a lot of cool apps out there but not all of them a good. IMHO the ones below are the iPhone best apps to listen music.

Also please note that there are other “music apps” as well, but there might not be for listening music on your iPhone/ iPod Touch but to either recognize songs (Like Shazam and SounHound ) or to make music.

Do you think there is any better music app for iPhone? Let us know in the comments

Wow… (by La Bob17)
I’ve had this app for almost a year, used it every day, loved it! Now, I have to pay to listen?! Deleting it today…disappointed.

I wonder how many one star reviews last.fm needs to figure out that charging a subscription fee for something that has been free for years was a bad move.

App deleted.

Cut it out (by Joshua Auriemma)
Stop with the "minor fix" updates. We know you’re just tying to get a new set of ratings. At least specify what you’ve patched.
Almost the perfect music choice! (by Fourdafunofit)
I love this app and have been using it forever. Finally broke down when I was using it for a party because the commercials were killing the mood and thought I was gonna get ripped off. But that is the best $30 bucks ever because it seemed to expand all my stations to include newer music and the no commercials really makes a difference when you are in the middle of a workout or a house party. The only thing I would need to make it perfect is the ablitity to play the exact song you want when you create a station. Seems like if you put a specific song then it is purposefully pulled or put way back in the rotation for that station. It would also be cool if you could build a playlist inside of pandora of tagged songs. I use to use the free app to find music to download. If I could do this I would only use pandora anytime I had wifi or good signal syrength.

Really. (by Randy Frederick)
You are clearly all idiots. This is an app for people who HAVE the service. It is LIMITED as of now. It is WELL WORTH the small monthly fee they are asking. This is an amazing music service. Deal with it and get over yourselves.
Amazing App- Other reviews don’t get it (by SSVII2)
People, the only way you can use this app if you pay for premium ($10 a month). You don’t need an invite if you are willing to pay for it.

Even if you get an invite, that is for the free desktop version which you can’t use on your phone.

I highly recommend paying for premium as this app changes the way you listen to music. Can’t live without it
