Google's Music Beta service, which allows users to upload tracks to the cloud and stream them on a desktop computer or mobile device, can only be accessed by iOS users via a Web app. While Google hasn't released an official iOS app yet, gMusic - a recently released iPhone app - allows users to access the service from within a native application. As outlined in the app's release notes, features include:
If you're using Music Beta (it's invitation-only at the moment, but you can request an invite if you have a Google account), this might be an app you're interested in downloading. Currently, gMusic is available for $1.99. However, do remember that a free Google Music Web app is available, and that Google will likely release an official app at some point in the future. Personally, I'm more than happy with Spotify's music streaming service, and its iPhone app. Let us know how you get your music fix in the comments. And as mentioned, gMusic is available to download in the App Store for $1.99. [via Redmond Pie]
