1. Pandora Radio

Pandora Radio is one of the best music streaming apps and has a very popular name in the music space. You can create your personalized stations based on artist and songs you choose. It utilizes its immense database to pick out the similar music. The best part is that the database is based on the actual music. You can add more artists and songs to add more varieties to your radio stations.

The free Pandora supports ads that means while using it on your iPad; you will see ads. Moreover, it has a premium version as well that is ad-free and costs mere $36 per year. Anyway, this is the best music app for iPad in my opinion.

2. Slacker Radio

Slacker Radio is quite similar to Pandora Radio. It has hundreds of radio stations, and each station has a good number of artists programmed into it. It also offers live radio stations, and apart from the music, Slacker Radio does offer news, sports, talk radio, etc. You can personalize the music experience with the custom stations.

Spotify is a free app for a limited trial period, and then you have to sign up for subscriptions. Though it charges more than other music apps, it does have a great quality. Spotify is similar to Pandora with extended features. You can create your own radio stations based on the artists and song.


Additionally, you can search for your favourite music to stream, and also you can make your own playlists. If you connect your Spotify account to Facebook, you can share these playlists with your friends as well to let them know your favourite tracks. Spotify has few radio stations based on genres.I am not a great fan of it, but it is the best music streaming music app for iPad for many users out there.

4. Apple Music

Apple Music is the default music app for iPad Air/Mini/Pro which you don’t need to download as it is preinstalled on your iPad. Though Apple Music was not favourite among Apple users, after they bought Beats Radio, they build this music app on the foundation of Beats Radio. And, this is one of the nice music apps for iPad users. You can create custom radio stations based on the songs and artists.
