Whether you’re working at your desk, somewhere along your daily commute or sweating it out at the gym, everything is better when you have a soundtrack. Smartphone apps are a godsend when you have to be mobile, but they have one small problem: Most of these music apps require WiFi or a 4G/LTE network to stream your latest jams. Sometimes you don’t have access to the interwebs, like if you’re stuck in an elevator or in a tube underground. Here’s a roundup of seven kickass connection-free music apps that won’t kill your vibe.


1. Spotify Premium: Not to state the obvious here, but when it comes to music apps Spotify is hard to beat. Yes, there is a monthly subscription fee, but if you truly love taking your music with you wherever you go then the price is worth it. Admittedly you can’t rock out to Taylor Swift, but Spotify has one of the most comprehensive music libraries out there.

3. Musify: Another handy music management app, Musify lets you save all your songs in one place. The app allows you to shuffle and create custom playlists – plus, it can divvy up your music by country as well. Time to get to listening worldwide.

6. Apple Music: We can’t talk about music apps without mentioning one of the rising stars: Apple Music. Sure, it only launched June 30 of last year, but it’s quickly become a serious competitor against music streaming giants like Spotify. It’s easy to see why — not only does it have access to essentially the entire iTunes library, it also has T.Swift.

7. Spinrilla Pro: If you can’t live without hip-hop, Spinrilla is the app you’ve been waiting for. The app gives you access to all the newest hip-hop mix tapes from your fave artists, DJs and producers. You could listen for free online, but for a just $0.99 a month, you can download the mix tapes for offline listening too.
