    Is it possible to add music to the iphone directly without doing it via the PC? Like downloading an MP3 and just play it on the music player.

    While I'd say "Yes, you can buy right from iTunes and they'll download right to your iOS device" I somehow doubt that is what you meant... If you mean downloading in other ways, it used to be possible, but Apple removed those types of apps. You could look at something like Spotify though, it downloads them for offline mode.

    But if you are talking about from CD's then you are out of luck.

    Upload the .mp3 files to a music storage site like Google Play or another cloud storage site and then download them to your iPhone using an associated app.

    Use any one of these instead of iTunes:
    Dropbox
    CopyTrans Manager
    SongBird
    WinAmp (not sure whether this one still works)
    MediaMonkey

    Basically you can use any file manager app e.g. GoodReader, iFiles etc. to open and play music without any setup via PC

    Thanks. I did not realize I could even access music from external storage without iTunes. Just tried it with GoodReader and it worked.

    I also use GoodReader which has a awesome player even though it's "just" a PDF reader
