There are a number of different options for creating a music app. Which one you use depends upon your needs.
Ask yourself a few questions before you start building. Are you planning to distribute your own music? What goal do you have in making the app? Is there a way to make money from your app?
What are the main possibilities for music-based Android apps?
There are a few basic scenarios for music apps. The first is for those who want to share samples or sample tracks from an album, using the app as a means of convincing people to purchase the album on iTunes. This is an easy type of app to make. Build a basic webpage with mp3 links to the songs you want, and the app is all but done. If you don’t have your own website, you can use Tumblr, Posterous, or even Blogger to create your page.
Can I make an Android app from a radio station?
Some people want to make full radio stations. There are a few reasons for doing this. Some just want a radio station that they enjoy listening to, while others feel that creating a great radio station app gives them a place to run advertisements for another business without paying for advertising time on the air.
A great tool for that type of venture is Radionomy. In the future, we will discuss how to use Radionomy to create your own radio station.
