mSpot Lets You Stream Your iTunes Library on Your iPhone

There are smartphone apps which give you access to millions of streaming

songs. But sometimes they don't have those rare recordings that you spent

months tracking down. And there are smartphone apps that kinda, sorta let

you connect to your home-based server or hard drive. But they can be slow

and wonky.

Point is, there aren't really any services that automatically

sync your library to the cloud so you can stream it on the go.

That's why

mSpot is here to help.

The cloud-based mSpot has been running on Android smartphones since June

with great success (over 1 million downloads), and as of today, it's up and running on the iPhone.

Essentially, you install a mSpot helper app on your computer that watches

your iTunes library and will automatically upload newly added songs to your

account on their servers. Then, when you're on the go, you can load up the

app on your phone and have your personal library ready to go. You can also

log into the site from a computer that's not yours and play songs back in

the browser.

As for costs, mSpot gives everyone 2 gigs of storage for free, with

unlimited playback. Or, if your music library is a bit more serious, you can

pay roughly $4 for 40 gigs of space, which is about 8 gigs more than the

biggest iPhone can hold. You can download mSpot for iTunes here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
