Music sources for Android users
« on: February 05, 2021, 07:01:26 am »
I wrote a very simple open source Android app to gather walkout songs from YouTube called 'Simple Song Collector'
You can download it from here:

https://github.com/UpAllNite-Software/simple-song-collector/releases/download/beta-1.0.4/ssc-beta-1.0.4.apk
(may need to long tap and select download link on newer Android devices)

You may need to change your Android settings when prompted to allow installation from your browser and override safety warnings, but there are no ads, tracking, or malware included so it should be safe to do so.

Just enter title and artist in the search, pick the best match, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs will be able to see and use them in the My Music selector.  There is a choice of music or video search from the three dot in the upper right.  Some songs seem to only be available in the video category.


The Simple Song Collector is based loosely on an open source project called Newpipe.  If you would like to check out the original with all the bells and whistles, you can get it from here:

https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/releases/download/v0.20.10/NewPipe_v0.20.10.apk

Search for your walkout songs in the app search bar, pick the best match from the result, tap it to open details, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs will be able to see and use them.

Some other Android options include the free online video converter at amoyshare.com   https://www.amoyshare.com/video-to-mp3

Put in the song title and artist in their search bar and their web site will locate the youtube video for it and let you download as an mp3 music file. You can either download on a pc/laptop or directly on your Android.   They do limit you to 10 per day, but that works reasonably well in a couple days to get all you need for the app.

A little more expensive would be buying the songs individually from Amazon, download on a pc and copy to your device with usb cable.  You can also use the Amazon music app to purchase and download on your Android. They charge like 1.19 per song.

A little less expensive would be buying the songs individually from mp3million.com , m.mp3va.com or similar discount mp3 sites.  They charge around .10 per song and the files can be directly downloaded on your Android.
