What are the best Android Apps for downloading music?

I'm new to Android phones and want to find a music downloading app that will let me play the music that I buy on other music players. Are there any ones that will do that? I was investigating Amazon MP3 and Google's music store but both make it sound like you can only play the music you buy from them on their app and their app only. My thinking is that if I buy music, I should be able to play it on basically any music player I want, just the same as if I bought the cd.

    In my opinion, the best app is actually Google Play Music. The reason that I think this is the best way to do it is because of the way it easily automates everything for you. When you install the program onto your computer, you choose which folders you would like to monitor for music. Then any time you add songs to those folders (or their subfolders) it is automatically uploaded to Google Play. If you have Google Play Music on your phone, you can stream anything in your music library. The speed is amazing, it streams almost instantly.

    The downside to this is that if you are not connected to a WiFi network, you are using mobile data to stream the music. It does not use a great deal, but you need to be conscious of it. Now that the carriers are forcing us into these "share everything" plans with data caps you can go over without realizing it. If you still have unlimited data, use it to your heart's content, but unfortunately when you do your next phone upgrade you are unlikely to keep the old plan, regardless of what was promised to you.

    Additionally, once you have your songs in Google Play, you can go into the app and select "download this song" or "download this album" and it will download it from Google Play to your phones internal storage or micro-SD card. If you monitor your folders with the desktop client and only download your music to your phone when you are on WiFi there is no threat to your data. This may not seem as practical as simply connecting your phone to copy your music over, but the benefit is that you can do it at your leisure, and only download music as needed.

    Hope this helps.
