SoundCloud is an online music and podcast streaming platform, which allows you to discover, stream, access to millions of music around the world. Different from other common streaming services, SoundCloud is capable of allowing SoundCloud users to upload and share their originally-created songs directly. With the SoundCloud free account, you are able to listen to over 120 millions of audio tracks from established and emerging artists. But you have no rights to save songs for offline listening on mobile except that you subscribe the SoundCloud Go for $4.99 per month or choose the SouldCloud Go+ costing $9.99 per month. Plus, not all audio tracks are downloadable, since only individual tracks can be downloaded and playlists as a whole are not available.
