With Weather Underground launching its Android app last week, the music offerings in the Android Market continue to explode. To help you keep the tunes blasting all summer on your Android phone, here are some cool and new Android apps that let you take your music wherever you go.

New music apps

Popular on the iPhone, Wunder Radio is expanding its horizons with its new Android app. For $6.99, you get local, global and Internet radio, with browsing and search options to help you hone in on what you want. Save podcasts for later listening, get artist information and follow the Twitter streams of your favorite radio stations.

DoubleTwist has made a huge splash on Android phones, thanks to its full suite of features. The free media player syncs your computer and phone content, letting you take your own music with you. For music, DoubleTwist gives you a great deal of freedom to what music you can listen to, and where.

Rhapsody’s free Android app is the opposite of DoubleTwist’s, with a full music subscription service. Stream music without paying, or sign up for an all-access account. Create custom playlists, access your music on your computer or television, and purchase songs for your permanent collection.

Clear Channel delves into the mobile realm with iheartradio’s free Android app. You can search hundreds of radio stations, from rock to sports talk, and also save your favorites; you can also view lyrics and see upcoming performances for artists.

Updated music apps

Spotify may not be available to Android users in the United States, but the free P2P music app is still making waves. With a computer interface option, you have better access to your content across multiple devices. Spotify’s recent move to TV makes us all the more anxious to get our American hands on this app.

MixZing’s Android app recommends songs based on your mood and listening behavior.  The $6.99 upgrade gives you an ad-free experience, custom home screen widgets for your music and downloads for free songs.

The bTunes app has also seen some growth since its updated release earlier this year. Expanding its device compatibility, bTunes works on more than just the Motorola Droid. The $1.99 app brings an iTunes-like experience to your Android, complete with music library search, album art and voice commands.

Slacker Radio’s free Android app is all about personalizing your music experience. Create custom recommendations and playlists, and tap into over 120 stations.  Best of all, Slacker Radio helps you discover new music. The iPhone version recently got an upgrade to support caching for later listening—an upgrade for the Android version is sure to follow.

Sticher’s free Android app brings you all your podcasts to your phone, so you don’t waste time syncing your content. The podcasts are actually streamed through Stitcher, so you’re not taking up any memory either. The app will be supported in the upcoming Ford SYNC Android package, giving you hands-free interaction while driving.
