Spotify gives you the freedom to create playlists with any song you would like, with a limit of 6 skips each hour. Built-in the app is the ability to create your own stations, branching off of a playlist, song, artist, or even album. If you are an artist looking for a way to take part in the music distribution of your own songs, you can create a profile and as you post on iTunes, the music will transfer over. With Spotify Premium subscription, there is absolutely no limit on skips, no ads, and you can listen to any song offline.


Soundcloud is the best app for music distribution purposes. It is the most popular underground music platform, where up and rising artists can share their music and support other artists, as well. Not only does Soundcloud let you stream music, but gives you the ability to create playlists and interact with other people and their playlists.
