All anybody seems to be talking about lately is streaming ... and with good reason! The days of vinyl records, 8-tracks, cassette tapes, CDs, even MP3s are things of the past. Not a day goes by when you don't hear mentions of iTunes, Spotify or Pandora. Streaming is the new king.
If you're anything like me, you stream a LOT of music. At work, on the way to work, at the gym, before bed and first thing in the morning.
And better yet, you don't need an iPod or special device to take your entire music library with you wherever you go. You can host every song you own on the cloud, so you can play music on your phone, tablet, computer, even through your TV. You'll just need to decide which service you want to use.
For that and other apps you'll want to make your streaming experience perfect and designed just for you, Komando.com has you covered. Here's our list of apps that any music lover needs to check out.

Have you ever listened to music that was just WAY too loud? Or maybe it's too quiet, or the bass is over the top or you can't hear the vocals.
A good mix makes ALL the difference, and a bad one can ruin your night. Now, you can have more control over your music with the Equalizer+ app.
With this app, you can play your downloaded music, and adjust your volumes and frequencies however you want. There are 10 different genre presets to choose from, or you can customize your settings for different songs. Even better, there's a fun visualizer where you can see the music waves animated on your screen.
Listening to music is a great way to fall asleep, but there is just one little problem; you don't really want the music playing all night. That's especially important if your gadget is running off the battery. Fortunately, there are ways to turn off music automatically.
On an Apple gadget, simply open the Clock, choose "Timer" and then set "When timer ends" to "Stop Playing." In some Android music players, you can find an option to stop playing music automatically in the settings.
However, some Android music players, including Google's Play Music app, don't have this option. That's where the Sleep Timer app comes in handy, for Android users.
Simply tell it what music app you're using (it even works with YouTube), how long you want it to run for and you're set. The app will turn off the music after that amount of time. Simple!
