3 Freegal Music

This is one of the most popular music downloading apps, and for good reason. It gives you access to millions of songs, and you can download music in several different formats. It will also help you rip music from videos. Overall, it’s one of the best apps out there for this purpose. One possible con, though, is that it uses the “freemium” model, so not everything is free. The basic version is free, however.

4 Spotify Music

Usually Spotify is more of a streaming app, but you can download music from it, too, under certain circumstances. It has a huge library of music, at any rate. One of the cons with this app, though, is that you usually have to pay to download music, which might kind of defeat the purpose for you.
