The YouEar is an application that allows you to listen to music through streaming, without having to pay a single penny for it. This is an alternative for those who don’t want to pay the monthly fee charged for most known platforms like Spotify and Deezer.
Although the developers of the program did not disclose the source of his repertoire, the entire library of YouEar audio is external — that is, the service has no licensing of songs and rightfully so your catalog can be a little more limited.
For fun, just use the search field to make a search by the name of melody, album or artist. Then choose the desired track in the list of results and enjoy at will. You can also create playlists (playlists) and mark certain songs as Favorites, making it easier to access at a later time.
Finally, the YouEar also allows its users to put their songs to the internal memory of the phone, saving them as files in MP3 format. Is a nice feature for those who want to listen to tracks in other media player. It is worth noting that, to download more than one item at the same time, it is necessary to access the application settings window and increase the maximum amount of simultaneous downloads.
I don’t think the YouEar will be your free replacement of Spotify: wherever come the music library of the application, it definitely doesn’t come at the foot of the catalogue offered by traditional streaming services. The amount of songs present in the platform is ridiculously small – during our tests, we can find several relatively famous songs on the internet. The search works by English rock group Radiohead, for example, the program only returned five or six of the Group’s most popular songs and nothing else.
In addition, the YouEar interface is not the best. Missed time of Capriccio draw the utility, which has menus and buttons pretty messed up. The ads that appear on the screen also bother you, and you can only remove them by purchasing the full version of the software – and, well, the free edition is unable to convince anyone to put his hand in my wallet to invest in YouEar Pro.
The quality of the melodies is also questionable, and the fact that you can download them in MP3 to cell phone – even if such a feature is appreciated by some – demonstrates that the program is linked to the practice of piracy. In short, unless you search for a freeware to download some songs from time to time directly by your cell phone, we do not recommend the YouEar: use official streaming platforms remains the best option to enjoy their favorite bands anywhere.
