Spotify competitor MOG has recently updated its official iPhone app with a handful of new significant features. Launched a couple of years ago, MOG for iPhone and iPod touch lets you take full advantage of your music subscription on your favorite mobile device. Giving you access to as many as 15 million songs, MOG lets you stream music online and even download your favorites for offline playback. It also offers various ways of discovering new music, including the customizable artist-only MOG Radio. In addition, MOG supports AirPlay streaming and seamless syncing between Web and mobile. Playlists created by popular artists are also included in the app. And now, thanks to its latest update, you yourself can now create and edit playlists right within the app. Finally, right? The update also adds album reviews to MOG’s already impressive feature set. Now, deciding which new or unfamiliar albums to stream or download is a less daunting task. The addition of custom playlists and album reviews is great, but that’s not all there is to MOG’s update. Know what else is there? A new interface that’s supposedly “better, stronger, faster,” which may as well mean “sexier.” The better, stronger, faster, and sexier MOG for iPhone and iPod touch is available in the App Store for free. The similarly superb MOG for iPad, which has been updated as well with support for custom playlists, is also available at no cost.
