Songr is a program that lets you search for, find and download, or stream music from the internet without using P2P sharing programs.

P2P sharing programs gained popularity in the early 2000s as more people began having access to the internet at home. While these programs helped you find thousands of movies, television shows, and songs, the programs also required that you shared your own content with others. You never knew who had access to your computer or when your ISP might shut you down for illegal downloads. Though Songr recreates the some of the benefits of those old programs, it lets you search for legal music from your favorite artists and bands.

This program is a lot easier to use than you might think too. When you first load it, you'll see buttons across the top that determine the way you search. It uses a number of specialty search engines that search legal websites and other spots on the web to find all the music you want. You can also use Google spell check, which will catch any misspelled words that you use. It also lets you select the quality of the songs you want to find.

You actually have two options when it comes to the songs you find. One option lets the app automatically play the song as soon as the download completes, but you can also ask the program to save a copy of that file on your computer. As long as you have a music playing app or a media app on your computer, you can create your own playlists from those songs. You can also use other apps to transfer music files to your phone. Songr also has a feature that lets you search the web for videos too.

Though Songr claims that it finds legal music and videos, you always need to check and ensure that you download legal content. Any illegal downloads you save may get you in trouble with your ISP. You may not like that it cancels all your downloads when you experience a service interruption. If you lose your signal, you'll need to do a new search and choose the files you want to download. Songr developers last updated the software several years ago, but it still performs just the way you want.

Pros:

  • Searches up to 10 different directories for the files you want
  • Can use the program to find both videos and music
  • Lets you search by sound quality
  • Can either stream or download the content you search for
  • One of the easiest music search programs to use

Cons:

  • May result in you saving copies of illegal videos or songs
  • Does not offer many customized search features
  • Its user interface looks fairly outdated
  • Does not let you pause downloads or resume downloads after internet issues
  • Last update came out quite a bit ago
