11 Best offline lyrics apps for Android & iOS

It was damn hard, but we did it! In the list below, you’ll see only the best offline lyrics apps. Every app is checked by the author, so be sure that only the good stuff is on your way.

Some apps have an offline mode which implies that you can save your favorite lyrics and view them later without internet connection. Others, like Lyrics Mania and Lyrics Match, offer you to download the lyrics of all the songs that you have in your library. There are also a couple of apps that do not necessarily have an offline mode, but we’ve figured out how to substitute it. Read on, my dear friend, to learn about the apps and about the tricks!

Genius — Song Lyrics & More

This one is really dope! If you ever searched for lyrics online, through Google or through any other search engine, then you probably know the most popular lyrics website which is Genius. Good news – this website is not just a website. People who stand behind it also created an app both for Android and iOS that is able to recognize lyrics, find them and show them to you in the most convenient way possible.

And it is not just the lyrics! There are explanations too. Like, for example, if you are not really sure what an author meant to say by that line, you can just tap on it and view various kinds of interpretations. This helps a deeper understanding of a song. If it sounds great, then you just must try the app or the website.

As for the offline mode, well, just like in many other apps of this kind, it is limited to saving your favorite lyrics so that you could view them later without internet connection. The search of the lyrics is quite simple – you can let the app absorb the sounds around it, type the info yourself or use a voice search is that is what you are used to do.

Genius is not just a lyrics app – it can also provide you with recent updates from the music world and play new music videos while simultaneously showing you the lyrics. As I have said, the app is really dope! Get it, use it, enjoy it. This is actually the one that I personally intend to keep.

QuickLyric – Instant Lyrics

QuickLyric is an app that is accessible only on Android at the moment. However, an iOS version is coming soon, so if you have an Apple’s device, it is worth checking out whether it is already out there or not.

The app is just fantastic for finding lyrics. And not just for that. There are such features, as karaoke, identification of music that you hear around you, floating mode and, of course, offline mode. It is truly amazing that all of that is free. Well, because of the fact that it is free, there are some ads that can pop up at times, which is not very nice. You can get rid of them though by buying a premium version of the app.

quicklyrics app

Don’t let this fact scare you though. You can use the app without paying money which is great. Here’s what you get from it. First, the app offers you to change some of the permissions on your device, so that, for example, it could work simultaneously with other apps on your phone. Then, it is time for the magic to begin! As soon as you start playing a song on your device, the app will turn on the floating mode (if you allow it to) – a little window on your screen, where the current lyrics are shown.

If you want to see the whole text, not just a couple of lines, you should open the app and press the renew button. Every time a new song is playing, just press the renew button and the new lyrics will be revealed to you. There is an extremely large collection of lyrics. The app can even recognize rare Russian songs, so it kind of tells you a lot about it! If you love listening to songs in different languages, Quicklyric will help you to make clear the words and phrases that you don’t understand.

Offline mode works in a tricky way. The app remembers the lyrics that you’ve been looking at and adds them to “Saved lyrics” in the menu, so that you could get back to them at any moment. All in all, I hope you see how amazing this app is! I had so much fun playing with it and therefore can assure you that it is really worth trying out!

Lyrix

Lyrix is one more app for Android that is able to save your favorite lyrics and reflect them offline. The app is based on the community’s added texts, so practically all the data that you’ll find there was uploaded by other users. There are millions of lyrics of songs from all over the world already, so you can be certain that in at least 80% of cases the app will do its job and find the necessary lyrics. If you don’t find the necessary lyrics, well, you may contribute your verse!

The blatant disadvantage of this app, from my point of view, is that its search doesn’t really work. Well, it is not like with the previous app, where you just play a song and the app gives you the lyrics. Here, you need to enter the name of the song and sometimes the name of the author too in order to find what you need. It is strange that there’s no such feature – it would be very handy, but alas. There is a voice search though – you can use it instead of typing if you want to.

The design of the app, as you see, is magical. The interface is really nice to look at. There are some ads though that apparently cannot be removed. One last thing that is worth mentioning about this app is that subscription or registration opens up new features such as submitting your own lyrics.

A little trick though (LIFEHACK TIME): instead of using apps like Lyrix you can just Google lyrics that you want to find and then make screenshots of them. Of course, it is not that convenient to read text from screenshots and there are some limitations that come with that like there is no ‘copy-paste’ option, but it is just one more way how it can be done. 

If you don’t find the described method convenient enough, then Lyrix is definitely worth a try!

Lyrics Mania – Music Player

Lyrics Mania is a lyrics app that has also got an offline mode. This app even allows you to download the lyrics of all the songs that you have in your library at once! How cool is that? No more online searching – everything is stored there already.

The app can identify music that is playing on your phone, which is great – it means you don’t need to type words in order to find the needed song. The lyrics are reflected on the screen in a quite freaky manner – they go like in karaoke: one line after the other. But you can just go through the text yourself if you wish. Both variants are available.

lyrics mania

The great thing about this app is that it lets you translate the lyrics right away, which means that it can reflect both lyrics of the original and the translated version. This feature is just wonderful for those who learn languages using songs.

Just like other lyrics apps, Lyrics Mania contains some advertising. To get rid of it, you need to buy a monthly or an annual subscription. If you don’t want to do it, then alright – you can use the app for free if you like. Finally, both iOS and Android versions are out there. So, what are you waiting for? Push one of the download buttons below and enjoy the app!

Shazam

Who hasn’t heard of Shazam? This is the most popular app for identifying music that you can inadvertently hear on the streets, in cafes, in shops, etc. Not many people know it, but the app is also good at providing you with quality lyrics and reflecting them in a really nice way.

shazam lyrics

There is no ‘offline mode’ in a traditional understanding of it. But you can always think of something that you can do if you take into consideration what’s given. It may sound tricky, but it is actually easy. When you tap ‘show lyrics’ button or whatever it is, you’ll see a little shy icon on the corner of the screen. This is a ‘share’ icon. So, why not to send the lyrics to your most favorite app that you use frequently? You can even message them for god’s sakes!

As for me, this invented method of saving lyrics is even better than an offline mode. Sure, different people have different preferences, but if you find this way of using Shazam convenient, then go ahead – get the app (if you don’t have it already) and enjoy it to the fullest!

Musixmatch – Lyrics for your music

And yet, one more popular lyrics app. Musicmatch is one of the biggest collections of lyrics out there. You can find practically anything you want. And what is great, the app can show the translations to your language or to some other language beneath the original text. Since the app is so famous, it has already acquired all the features that go hand in hand with lyrics apps – identification of music, synchronization with other apps, karaoke mode, floating mode, and more. Everything is shown on a beautiful minimalistic interface.

musicmatach app

Unfortunately, ads are also shown on this beautiful minimalistic interface. To make them go and to get an access to the desired offline mode, you need to buy a subscription. The price is biting! (Ouch) But wait, you don’t need to ignore this option just because of the price. If you can stand the ads, then you can just use that sharing feature described in the review above. A penny saved is a penny earned, huh?

Upon the whole, there is no particular need to say how wonderful this app is. Its popularity speaks for itself. Now that you know what other options are available to you, you can decide whether you want to check this one or not. I can guarantee you though that it wouldn’t be a waste of time!

SoundHound

SoundHound is an identifying app, just like Shazam. It can identify even such subtle sounds as humming. So, for example, if you remember a tune of some song, you can hum it to the app and there is a good chance that the app will identify it. You see, SoundHound is powered by Houndify and therefore has some special abilities to recognize both songs and voices.

The app is great on its own. There is a number of great features, but when it comes to lyrics, well, it is not that good at it. That’s why the app is closer to the end of our list. It can find the lyrics and, more than that, you can do it in an original way – just by saying “Ok, Hound, show me the lyrics to…”, but there is no offline mode.

soundhound app

You can, of course, make screens or invent some ways to save the lyrics, but this feature is not stipulated so to say. Plus, there are ads. The ads can be removed, of course, and either way, you can enjoy the app, especially if its other features float your boats!

BTS Lyrics (Offline)

BTS Lyrics is an app created for all the lovers of Korean culture. The app contains all the lyrics of BTS’ songs. There is a complete collection that can be accessed offline. Not only that. There are different kinds of translations of those songs. Is it even worth rambling on about this one? If you know what BTS stands for, you’ll probably want to check the app out! If you don’t, then just scroll down to see other wonderful apps.

MetroLyrics

MetroLyrics is an iOS app. The app, as well as the website it is based on, has one of the largest databases of lyrics. This is a relatively old app that doesn’t have those advanced features attributable to other lyrics apps. It has a search engine, of course, but only a manual one. It also can sync to last.fm. Well, you know, this is a kind of stuff old-schoolers would appreciate!

One of the most popular features of the app is finding out what other people in your region are listening to – it is called mapping and, by the way, can be found in SoundHound as well.

metrolyrics app

You can view biographies of musicians. their photos and albums, the news related to them. As for the lyrics, it is not just dry texts – there are some interpretations as well, just like in Genius. Upon the whole, this is a good stable app without any modern frills that can just do its job.

Lyrics Match: Music Player

Lyrics Match is a smart music player that can import lyrics automatically so that you could view them while playing a song. You can even download the lyrics of all the songs that you have on your phone though just one tap! Ain’t it great? The player itself is quite cool – it even has an embedded equalizer.

lyrics match app

There are some ads, but they are not that annoying. You can get rid of them at any time if you want to. So, there we have it – a smart cool-looking app that shows you lyrics of the songs that you really love – I believe if you took the time to download something, then you must definitely appreciate it. Well, of course, these days people tend to use such apps as Spotify to find and store music, but if you are picky as hell and like to choose everything with your own mind and with your own hands, then this app will definitely suit you.

No need to Google that song anymore – everything you need is inside the music player. If you like this idea, then go to the app store and see if it works out for you!

Lyrics Library

Lyrics Library is a simple minimalistic app that lets you write, edit and download lyrics. This is the easiest app on this list – it doesn’t have a sophisticated search engine or a big collection of songs. But at least its offline mode doesn’t suck and, by the way, there are no ads whatsoever.

lyrics library app

If you want to, you can even add cords to the lyrics. So, basically, the app works as a good note taker – only there is a collection of texts that is constantly updated by other users. If you don’t find what you need, you can always download it from other resources and add it to the library. Lyrics Library is what you can use to store them all in one place! The reviewers seem to love it. Get the app and check its advantages yourself.


This is it for the best offline lyrics apps. I hope you’ve found your favorite one. Thanks for reading up till the end. I wish you to encounter lots of good music with excellent lyrics and, of course, be smart in choosing apps!
