Add songs to Music Box
Step 1: Launch Music Box from your iDevice. Tap on the most left button and a search box will eventually appear on top.
Step 2: Type in either the song name or the singer name of the song you want to download and search for it. You can search for any songs you want including English, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Latin Music, Indian, and others. Often the list will appear a few different versions of the song based on what you type into the search box. You can tap on the song you want and try to listen to it before download it to your device. Tips: Look at the length of the music. If the length is less than a minute it is probably a ringtone or just part of the song.
