The best streaming music apps for iPhone, whether you need huge collections, offline access, or international reach. Can't stop the signal!
Looking for the best iPhone apps to stream all the songs you want to listen to? While Apple offers their own music streaming, iTunes Radio, there are lots of other options in the App Store that are just as worthy of your attention. From downloading and listening to tracks offline to serving up up the perfect playlists for your next party or event, there really is something for everyone. But which streaming music apps for iPhone are the absolute best?
Radio streaming services take the heavy lifting out of finding music to listen to. They differentiate themselves from on-demand streaming music services by taking the work out of curating your own content and playlists.

So if you aren't interested in offline downloads and just want to hit play, follow along to figure out which one is right for you.

As if the world wasn't blessed with enough streaming music services, a new report suggests the folks at Beats will be joining the party in the not too distant future. In speaking with The Next Web, Beats COO Luke Wood has outlined some details for the forthcoming service:
Spotify continues to try and edge ahead in the streaming stakes, and their latest addition is a big one; they now have the full back catalog from Pink Floyd available to stream. Music from Pink Floyd is available on competing services, to buy and to stream, but Spotify takes the crown as the only streaming service to offer the full and complete works of Pink Floyd. And, for premium members, that means you can take it with you on your iOS device as well as listening along on your Mac.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and SVP of internet services, Eddy Cue reportedly met with Beats Electronics CEO and Interscope-Geffen-A&M chairman Jimmy Iovine to discuss his and co-founder Dr. Dre's planned Project Daisy Music Streaming service, among other things. According to Poornima Gupta and Ronald Grover at Reuters:
As is often the case when fall approaches and an Apple event draws near, rumors have begun to swirl about Apple starting a Pandora-style streaming/subscription music service. Even though Apple has resolutely stuck to iTunes purchases for music, and added the subscription-based iTunes Match music locker service, the allure of true streaming solution is such that everyone and their journal of record seems to agree Apple is working on something like it, to launch sometime.
