Ask Joan: Linda asked, “What is an easy way to access music on an iPhone?”
Linda says: What is an easy way to access music on an iPhone? I know how to go to a search engine and find a tune . I would like to help my mom, who is on palliative care, have access in an easier way–perhaps set her up an app, play list (I do not know how to do this) or something. Suggestions?
Here’s my answer to Linda’s question:
The best app for an iphone I found was:
Here’s why I like the Pandora app:
You can let Pandora access your microphone on your phone, then you can ask Pandora to play certain types of music for you, you can say, “Hey, Pandora play Elvis Presley” and it plays Elvis Presley music.
“Hey, Pandora, play 50’s music,” and it plays a radio station that plays 50’s music.
“Hey, Pandora, play the top 10 Country Hits,” and it plays a radio station that plays country hits.
“Hey, Pandora, play classical music.” and it plays a radio station that plays classical music.
When it plays a song, it shows the lyrics and other artists who sound like the one to which you’re listening.
Pandora has a premium program that you can pay extra to listen to specific songs or watch an ad to listen to a certain song.
Free software to download to a computer:
Freemake Music Box
Download to computer from https://www.freemake.com/free_music_box/
Freemake has an app but I couldn’t get it to go to my iphone from where I live. Perhaps you’ll have better luck.
If you or someone in your family wants to help set up a play list for your Mother, they can easily do that using the software you can download to a computer.
Here’s why I like Freemake Music Box:
- You can put the name of a song you want to listen to and the artist. It will show you examples of that song. You click on the + sign and it is added to your play list. (My Play List).
- It will begin to play all the songs on your list when you start at the top.
(They have an app for an iphone but it says it is unavailable for Pineville, NC where I live, when I tried to download it.)
There are many apps out there for music that cost money. These are free and don’t have a lot of ads.
