We’ve posted about other music download utilities in the past, and thought that Songr would be a good one to cover as well. It’s a free program that can be used to search for music around the Internet, and more often than not can find high quality versions of the songs you’re looking for. There is, of course, the legality aspect to this, but the odds are pretty good that if you want an app like this you’ve probably found other ways to get your music for free as well. It also incorporates purchasing of the music from online stores like Amazon so it isn’t completely focused on piracy.
Here is a quick overview of the features:
- Pulls in results from a bunch of different MP3 search engines
- Full album searching (isn’t quite as nice as the individual song search)
- Download YouTube videos and even extract the audio as an MP3
- Double-clicking a result opens it in Windows Media Player
- Search for songs by lyrics
- Automatic app updating
- Portable version available
- Buy Music from Amazon and other online stores
The app has been downloaded over 1.1 million times, and if this is something that interests you I recommend grabbing the portable version because it is the easiest way to give it a try.
