Soundboard apps are fun little apps. They provide a bunch of goofy sound bytes at a moment’s notice when you need them. They’re especially fun when doing voice chats with people. After all, having the right meme or sound at the right time can make a joke work. Anyway, this is too long of an opening paragraph for the subject matter. Here are the best soundboard apps for Android.

Custom Soundboard

Price: Free / $1.99

Custom Soundboard lets you make, well, custom soundboards. This one is a bit more labor intensive than others. However, you have the benefit of only being limited by your imagination. You can add whatever sounds you want. Additionally, you can record directly with the phone microphone or import from a sound file. The app is reasonably clean and easy to use. You can even do stuff like add effects and play multiple sound effects at once to layer the sounds. It doesn’t come with any sounds effects, but otherwise it’s a solid option.

Instant Buttons

Price: Free / $3.49

Instant Buttons is one of the most popular soundboard apps we found. It features dozens of buttons with a bunch of audio memes for almost any situation. Additionally, the buttons work and the UI is easy to use. Perhaps the best feature for this one is the ability to create your own sound buttons for whatever joke or meme you feel like recreating. Thus, you can always have an up-to-date meme board even if the developer doesn’t update the app for a while.

Meme Soundboard

Price: Free / $0.99

Meme Soundboard is one of many copy-and-paste soundboards. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, it just means that there are a lot of apps just like this one. This one includes various memes from the last 20 or so years. The app also promises decent sound quality, tons of memes, and an easy UI. There isn’t much else to say about. You press the button, it plays the meme, everybody laughs, and then everyone moves on with their day. The premiumv version removes ads, faster (and more frequent) updates, and more.

MLG Memes Soundboard

Price: Free / $1.99

MLG Memes Soundboard is one of many decent meme soundboard apps. This one features a colorful design, simple use, and most of the recent memes. Of course, if it’s not what you want, there are other options as well. This one is not kid-friendly. We’re not sure that matters to you, but it’s a heads up either way. It’s a free app that shows advertising after every ten sound plays. There is a $1.99 purchase to remove ads. It’s good for what it does, but don’t be afraid to search for alternatives if it doesn’t have what you want.

Zeptars soundboard apps

Price: Free

100 sound buttons 2 - best sound apps

Zeptars is a developer on Google Play with a variety of soundboard apps. They’re not overly amazing, but the developer has a ton of them. That includes two random sound apps with stuff like boat horns and music notes, a meme soundboard, a trolling soundboard, and a couple of celebrity soundboards. The UI for the apps isn’t very good. However, the apps otherwise work as expected. They are also all free with advertising.
