New Music Streaming app for iPhone, finally it’s here!

A few weeks ago we told you that we’d submitted our shiny new Music Streaming iPhone app, well after some time doing the ‘app review dance’ with Apple we’re pleased to tell you it’s now live and ready for you to download

The new Ubuntu One Music Streaming app for iPhone comes packed full of great functionality and an elegant new UI, so you can wirelessly sync your entire music collection saved to your Ubuntu One personal cloud. Along with supporting MP3’s and non-DRM iTunes song formats we’ve made managing your music on the fly easy, so you can browse and search by artist, album, or song title. You can also build and listen to playlists and control your listening with skip, shuffle and repeat functions.

What makes it perfect for everyday use is that you can listen offline without a connection and enjoy your favorite songs at the gym, on that run, commute or flight. No need to worry if you get a call half way through your favourite chorus, as it will automatically resume playing when you’ve finished your call.

You can try the Ubuntu One Music Streaming on iPhone free for 30 days, after the free trial period expires Music Streaming is just $3.99 per month which now has 20GB of storage included in the price. Plus if you sign up for 12 months you get 2 months for free!

So what are you waiting for?!….Simply download from the App store and try it free for 30 days.

Happy listening!

    When i try to log in it tell me that i need an ubuntu one mobile streaming account… Or similar. I can’t activate it directly from my iphone?

    Did the Vorbis support that the Android app not make it into this iPhone release? (Or did it just not make it into this blog post?)

    That App is a great idea. I really love the concept. I’ve already subscribed to the payed version, but I must honestly say, it needs some improvement to keep me paying for it.

    Some Flaws that could make me quit:

    -I can’t figure out how to make the App store music on my Phone, the cache stays at zero. I want to listen to my music even if I don’t have Internet access, also I don’t want to stream over 3G or GSM.

    -Cover Art doesn’t work at all. I have it running on Banshee and Rhythmbox, also works when uploaded via iTunes. But nothing using U1

    -Ubuntu one (PC) only lets me use folders from my Ubuntu ext4 Drive. It’s a 20GB SSD I use only for the OS to improve performance. For Storage I want to use my 500GB ntfs drive. Unlike other Streaming apps Ubuntu one doesn’t let me select folders from there. Of course all my music is on that drive.

    Get these things working and I can guarantee, that I’ll never use the built in iTunes Player on the iPhone again.

    I applaud the efforts to get Ubuntu to talk in some way with i-devices. As an iPhone user I’d love some way for my phone to talk to my Ubuntu machine. I know that Apple is not exactly into openness and sharing markets. All that said, however, adding the ability to play my own music to a device with its roots in…playing my own music doesn’t really strike me as that much of a victory.

    With the iPod functionality of all iPhones and iPod Touches and the addition on all such devices of apps geared toward streaming music to that device (Pandora, Spotify, Apple’s own iCloud, etc.), I just don’t see that there’s much point to this.
