Just over a week after the successful release of the new iPad, MOG has come out with an official app optimized for Apple’s ubertablet. MOG for iPad practically incorporates the same features found in its iPhone counterpart, which has been in existence since July 2010. As a subscriber of MOG’s digital music service, you can now enjoy your kind of mix on your iPad, old or new. You’re entitled to instant access of MOG’s audio database on your iPad. Unlimited song downloads to your iPad are also part of the package.
Taking advantage of the iPad’s larger real estate, the app works in both portrait and landscape modes and sports a smart interface. Album artworks are also fit for full-screen viewing.
MOG for iPad comes nearly eight months after Rdio launched its own iPad app. That might seem a little too late, but MOG is still faring better in this respect compared with Spotify, which, oddly, is yet to release an iPad app. Of course, actual sales performance is another story. Of the three digital music services, it appears that MOG has a longer way to climb than Rdio does before it catches up with Spotify’s billion-dollar success.
While the subscription itself to MOG’s service costs $10 a month, MOG for iPad, as expected, costs nothing to download in the App Store.
