Keeping your favorite movies, music, and everything else with you at all times.

Filled with both up-and-coming and established acts, Bandcamp is one of the most exciting music marketplaces today. Their app is still a bit disappointing, shirking music discovery and purchasing but recently adding a weird social network-ish feature. But it does one cool thing—instant streaming of your Bandcamp purchases. That alone makes this app a keeper.
Free
If you're an audio nerd or just prefer to have a lot more control over your music collection, take a look at DeaDBeeF. This sprawling app supports mp3, ogg, aac/mp4, alac/mp4, flac, ape, wv, wav, tta, mpc, sid, mod, s3m, nsf and more. There's also a 10-band equalizer so you can get your tunes sounding just so. Perfect for all of those live recordings of Steely Dan concerts you've been hoarding.
.99/month
Hulu has long been the king of streaming TV. It's the best choice for when you want to see current shows and not wait until they're collected for sale or streaming on another service. But it also has a deep well of great movies to draw from, most notably the Criterion Collection films. If you need to see Brooklyn 99 on your Nexus 6, then this is the app for you. Hulu
.99/month
Netflix was the original streaming movie service, and though you can't manage your rental DVDs from the app, it's still essential. While it's fair to complain that content on Netflix will sometimes just disappear, the service has started creating its own content. Original comedies, cartoons, documentaries, and smash-hits like House of Cards make Netflix a must-have.
$20
Have you ever needed (I mean, really needed) to catch your favorite show but found yourself nowhere near a TV? Technology is finally here to solve the problem with Sling TV, an inexpensive service that lets you watch live TV on any Android device. Get ready to cut the cord and kick cable out of your life.
