FEATURES
  • Completely Free
  • Listen to any song by any artist
  • Organized by Artist and Album
  • Save Favorites and Playlists
  • Send Playlists to friends
  • Works on 3G, 4G or WiFi

How does it works?


Can we really listen to any song?
When you select a song, Ghosttown uses the YouTube API to search for and play the song. Just about any song by a known artist will work.

Where is the app available?
You can download Ghosttown from the Android Market

Wow, i am impressed. Does exactly what it says! Sometimes finds live versions of the songs though, instead of the album versions.

No download is NOT available because that would violate copyright restrictions and Youtube terms of service.

It use whatever connection you have at the time ^^

So if wifi is what you have when you use this app that’s the only connection it will use..
