An easy, hassle-free way to download your favorite songs and videos from the internet
Windows 8.1 / Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
Songr is a program that will replace all the other music sharing software that you use because it searches the web to find new music for you. It gives you multiple ways to search for songs and can download songs almost instantly from YouTube.
Though you do not need to do a lot of set up to install and use this app, you will need to change the settings to use your preferences. You can click on the Search Engine settings to select only the search engines that you want the program to use, but you can also tell it to use all 15 search engines at the same time. Search preferences let you select the quality of the MP3 files you want to look for on a scale between good to excellent. It even lets you enable Google Spell Check to make sure that you do not spell band names or song titles wrong.
Using this app gives you the option of looking for music via YouTube too. If there is a song that you love, you can open the YouTube video in a new tab or window, copy the URL and paste the URL into the box on the program. It will then download a copy onto your computer and save it for you. With the Discover Music option, you can learn about new bands and hear songs you never heard before.
Songr offers plenty of customization options for your downloads too. You can have the program shut itself down and close all windows once downloads complete, or you can have the program shut down after a download finishes and you click to listen to that track. The program also lets you choose how you want it to save your music. The HD option downloads and saves songs in a better quality format when it can, but this option will make your downloads take a little longer to finish.
Some of the issues you might have with this program is that it frequently suggests paid music and it may not find all the music that you want to hear. It gives you the option of searching for songs through Amazon and other sites, but if it finds what you want on one of those sites, you need to pay to download the song. Songr is one of the best choices for those who want to download music from YouTube though because it lets you save copies of every song in your playlist.
Songr is a free, frequently updated application that allows users to swiftly search for and download MP3 songs on the web using a specialized search engine system. Songr unifies over 10 websites, including YouTube, to search for songs on the web and download them using MP3 format. The developers of Songr emphasize that their application does not establish any peer-to-peer or torrent connections, so users can feel secure with the benefits of direct HTTP-supported downloading.
Songr shines itself in the spotlight with its clean GUI that returns search results within a few seconds. Users can preview, stream, and download songs out of a detailed, simplified list of search results. The application organizes the results into columns and the user can then sort them into further categories. Each column contains data related to the song search result such as its name, bitrate, website source, and download speed.
With Songr, users don't need to wait for slow searching or download speeds. The songr application runs as fast as the user's internet connection does. Although the initial launch requires no configuration, experienced users might find themselves tweaking settings for personalized search results and program functionality.
The only flaw spotted while using Songr is the lack of the option to resume a download once stopped. You can't pause downloads once stopped - instead, you must restart them.
Songr was last updated in 2013, and users can expect updates in the future. Songr is extremely portable and supports Windows XP up to Windows 8.1, the latest operating system offered by Microsoft.
