At SXSW, MOG announced the upcoming availability of its Android (and iPhone) application. At $10/month it allows unlimited streaming of 7-million songs, radio stations and downloads. That’s right â€“ although the service is streaming, it allows you to download songs to a â€œlocal cacheâ€ for playback even when out of cell phone or Wi-Fi range.
Subscribers to MOG.com already enjoy artist radio with a slider that allows you to create an artist station consisting only of songs by that artist, mostly songs by related artists, or anywhere in between. The same feature will be available in the mobile apps.
While Mog’s offering isn’t that different from Grooveshark, or Spotify in Europe, another option for your tunes is always a good thing.
