I love Spotify, at least when it’s not shi**ing the bed and stuttering through songs that I rarely (or anyone else) play – probably something to do with their P2P infrastructure. So it stands to reason that Google’s music service, Google Play Music All Access, might actually offer a better experience.
However, during the announcement a few weeks ago, iOS users were left out in the cold, leaving them to decide between Spotify or Rhapsody (to a large degree). But not any more. Google today announced that Google Play Music All Access, and its hideous name, will be coming to Apple devices sometime soon.
Right now it’s not clear what kind of functionality it will support compared to the Android version, but let’s just hope that the same discount of $2 – in perpetuity supposedly – is valid to Apple users as well. Just keep in mind that if you want the service at $8 a month, you’ll need to invest before June 30th, where upon it will see an increase to $9.99, the same price as Spotify and Rhapsody.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
