MOG (http://www.mog.com), an on-demand music listening service and music blogging hub, hasy demonstrated its new MOG All Access mobile streaming music application for smartphones. The application will be available initially on iPhone and Android platforms.
The service, which will be available in early the second quarter of the year, will cost US$10 per month for unlimited listening and includes the desktop service as well. With MOG All Access Mobile, users will be able to access MOG’s full music catalog of seven million songs from a smartphone. According to David Hyman, founder and CEO of MOG, features include:
° On-demand listening: Users can listen to any artist, album, or song, on-demand, in unlimited amounts.
° MOG Radio: Users can hear an unending stream of music based on a track or artist, with full control over how many similar artists are mixed in.
° Music discovery technology: With a slider control, users can decide if they want to listen to true “artist only” radio, or allow for the introduction of similar artists into the playlist queue.
° Users can access the playlists they make at MOG.com for on-the-go listening. They can also bookmark favorites while using the mobile app that are then integrated into their personal library.
° My Downloads: Users can, in unlimited fashion, download songs to their phone into a “local cache” so they can continue to listen to music even when out of cell or WiFi range.
° HQ Audio: Users can download songs at the standard rate of 64 kbps or turn on HQ downloads to save the song as a larger file with higher audio quality.
