Top 5 music apps for iPhone 5s

If you are not satisfied with the stock music player of your iPhone 5s, try some third party music apps. This article introduces you 5 popular music apps.

It's no doubt that cellphone has displaced the traditional music player like MP3 player and CD player. You can see many people use their iPhone or Android phone to listen to music. In my opinion, iPhone is a better music phone than Android phone as it has most features of iPod – the most popular music player in the world. But the stock music app of iPhone is not so perfect. It's just like most stock iPhone apps – they are plain, easy to use but only have simple features. Even though the latest iPhone 5s has adopted the new iOS 7, it doesn't change a lot in music play.

But don't forget that the iPhone 5s is a smart phone. We can install many third party apps on it. If you are not so satisfied with the stock music app of your iPhone 5s, try another one. In this guide, I'll list 5 popular music apps for iPhone 5s. They are not only simple music player but also provide many interesting features. Hope it can help you make a good decision.
