Android music help

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hey ocn I have a galaxy s3 and I'm stumped on where to get music for it. My mom doesn't like to use her credit card on the android store. Is there a better place to get music? Or is there a way to get a android gift card, kinda like a iTunes one? I I was just so use to how easy it was to get songs on my old iPhone, and that's what I kinda miss. And I want the songs to be good quality because I have klipsch headphones and a Polk audio sound system in my truck. I thanks in advance:D

Gift cards.

There's also Amazon's music service (Amazon MP3?) which accomplishes largely the same basic function of purchasing and downloading music. I believe you can use iTunes to put music on Android phones, but I have no idea how as I refuse to desecrate my computer with iTunes. The main advantage with going through Google Play will be their music service's cloud system. You can place 20,000 of your own songs on their servers (anything purchased through Google doesn't count towards the limit) and have access to it whenever you have any sort of data connection. Also allows the option for downloading specific songs and playlists so you have something to listen to when you don't have data.

I downloaded the music from the Google play store onto my phone and pinned it to it. Do you think it's good quality once you pin it? And how do I put music onto my stock samsung music player instead of the Google play one once I do bought the songs?

1. I think is stored however it is listed on google play so most will be pinned at 320kbps.
2. You can't really use the samsung music player with pinned gmusic. Gmusic stores the songs somewhere with a bunch of scramble digit file names. The best option would be to download your play music to your pc transfer the songs manually and use the samsung player then.

It's pretty typical mp3 quality. I don't think the google music downloaded to your PC is any better.

If you are streaming to your phone you can choose high or low quality to save data but as far as I know what you see is what you get when you pin the music to your phone.

Maybe I skipped over it, but why aren't you transferring music from your PC to the SD card on your phone?

If you have google music or have uploaded everything to google music it's more convenient to just download from the cloud.
