Why you need the Gaana App in Your Life

The Gaana App, brainchild of developers 'Times Internet Limited', is the number one music app in India. From modern Bollywood to British Pop you can find it all here. Whatever your music styles and tastes, whatever your genre preference, Gaana lets you search the internet for your favourite tunes in downloadable format and lets you save them directly to your Android device.

The first thing I noticed about the Gaana App was the diversity it offers. Not only in choice (which is huge) but in terms of accessibility and mobility. It not only lets me make and carry playlists in my pocket it also lets me share those playlists with my friends, with social media or with my groups. Anyone who has the app can create their own playlists and then let their friends judge them on it... Be it harshly or well – everyone wants to share their favourite tunes with others. The Gaana App lets me be the DJ at parties by having ready made playlists to hand.

The Gaana App gives you the choice of either Hindi or English, opening itself up to the two worlds presented by the two different languages. With its easy access and fluent style I can see it taking off in the west before too long, as India already seems to recognise its value. Another thing I love about it is that the Gaana App creators have a visible and strong online presence. If there are any problems with the app I can simply go online and contact them, making the lines of communication clear and beneficial for all. If you don't believe me you can pop over to Gaana.com and see for yourself!

The Gaana App is similar to the Netflix of music. It offers options for trending music, new releases and top chart songs – it even sports some 'Gaana Specials', songs that they endorse that are ones to watch out for in the future. Gaana takes an informed and wholehearted approach to music that spans across cultures, there is very little room to criticise an app which is so dedicated in its task.

A few final thoughts then. The Gaana App works best if you and a group of your friends all use it. In that way you will get the maximum benefit to be had from sharing and finding music. There's no reason not to download the Gaana App, however, since it is a perfectly well functioning music search engine even for those hermit types who don't want to show off how spectacular their musical taste is! I would recommend the Gaana App particularly to those who speak English, as I would like the developers to have as much success in English native countries as they have had in Hindi. If correctly marketed I predict that the Gaana App will go a long way, and hopefully in a short time... the sooner my friends get it downloaded the sooner I can start sharing songs with them! I won't be too eager though, I don't want any of them stealing my DJ spot!
