From the start, it was clear that digitization would bring the ability to acquire music for nothing, in a mostly-anonymous setting (that is, until a record label subpoenas your ISP for your IP address). I decided to investigate seven paid and seven free apps designed for downloading free music to an iPhone, to find out more about these mysterious apps, which feature similar names, and whose developers tend to be anonymous.
Typically, they include a web browser that you can point at music blogs or other places on the web to download whatever MP3s are linked from there.
His point is valid, but any app that lets you download from the web could also be used to grab music from sites that post it without permission, which is probably why Apple doesn’t allow its iOS version of Safari to do the same.
Having a problem, I know the application is kinda’ old, but when I try to search for an app, I get a little message in Chinese with a little green button on it. For many of us, the availability of so many truly free, truly legal music sources means we no longer bother hunting for stuff on file sharing networks.


Music Free Download Pro directed me to a dummy site that didn’t appear to be associated with the company, while iDownloader Free led to a blank tumblr page. I used the same criteria for each app: I tried the Stereogum Gum Mix (a list of free MP3s from the respectable indie music source). The market is crowded with opportunistic, elusive developers apparently looking to publish cookie cutter apps fast and move on to their next project.
I guess the little green button is a refresh button, so I press it, and the same thing happens. As popular as they are, within the hand-curated iTunes store, my prodding found a seedy underbelly replete with fake websites, bad grammar, and copycat features.
The aforementioned Music Box app linked to an old WordPress website that hasn’t been updated since 2010.


Out of those nine, only two responded (Free Music Download Pro and the somehow unrelated Free Music Download Pro Plus). All of the apps managed to download it smoothly, and the files played properly upon completion. Questions remain about the smartphone as a platform for downloading music from the web, as these apps appear to occupy a hazy middle ground between sites like The Pirate Bay and the iTunes music store.
I asked the HeavyRotation Apps developer who made the former, about the finer points of getting a music downloader app into iTunes.
