If you’reÂ looking forÂ free music, Fildo is a decent FREE app for streaming and downloading MP3’s.
Fildo allows you to search various MP3 download sites and stream or download songs instantly, and then sort them into playlists. One cool feature is that when you stream a song, the lyrics instantly show up so you can sing along.
Also, the app is Mango enabled and plays music in the background without an issue. And the selection of songs seems to be great; I had no trouble finding the songs I was looking for.
The best thing about Fildo is that you don’t have to manually go to various websites… you simply search for the track and the app combines all the results in a user-friendly list that is faster and better than any other app I’ve seen yet!
However, the interface in Fildo can be frustrating and laggy. The advertisement in the app blocks the UI thread and oftenÂ causes the app to lag for about 2 seconds. Also, the UI design is very basic, with the home screen still containing the word “Menu” instead of something more personalized to the app. Overall, the UI doesn’t feel very polished or professional, and your downloaded song collection could use some organization via artists, albums, etc instead of being one cluttered list.
And the app also lacks a Now Playing screen, so you can’t tell which songs are next in your current playing list. And what’s really frustrating is that you can’t use the great lyrics feature for songs you downloaded! Also, if you start a download and then leave the app, the download will become corrupted instead of downloading in the background, and you’ll have to manuallyÂ delete/redownload the song.
Overall, Fildo has an excellent selection of music and it certainly functions as a free source of music, but the user interface can be frustrating at times.
Nevertheless, Fildo seems like the best free music app I could find on the Marketplace right now. Download Fildo for FREE!
