Best Music-Related iPad Apps for 2010

Dec 29, 2010

Of all the apps I reviewed for the iPad on Appolicious in 2010, these were my favorite. It includes BOTH music listening and music creation apps.


Aweditorium is one of those very special iPad apps. Next to Flipboard it’s one of the best iPad apps of 2010. An amazing assortment of independent artists, a really unique interface, share your recommendations, save them, discover new music! A true aural and visual experience.

Requires iOS 4.2 to run


Reactable mobile

Reactable mobile allows you to Improvise and create music based on the instrument design used used by Björk on her Volta Tour. Spin, strum, change instruments, pitch, percussion sounds and more on a truly creative app from an interactive instrument that was once only on stage, and is now in your hands!



This is by far the best app to display your music collection, and use as a music player on the iPad. Grabs all the album covers from your collection and then turns them in a large grid. Cool concept!



I agree with others, this is one of the best, if not THE best percussion app on the app store. Zero latency means the sound hits your ear as you tap on the drums or cymbals. Bonus bongos too!


Spark Radio Lite

I like Spark Radio Lite- and I don’t typically say that about most of the online radio apps in the app store. They do try to get you to the Pro version though with a lot of features marked “Pro.”

But you do get to mark favorites, browse by genre, and visualizations are built into the free version. I just wonder how long these “skin-based” apps will survive with the popularity of Pandora and others on multiple platforms (iPhone, iPad, connected TVs and Blu-ray players, Roku, Boxee Box, and Apple TV).?
