Tired of Pandora? Want another service for your iPhone or Android device that streams music? Got $10/month burning a hole in your pocket? Tired of me asking all these questions? Engadget reports that today MOG (which stands for Music On the Go) arrived on Apple’s App Store and the Android Market, offering 8 million songs on demand for $9.99/month. The 320Kbps MP3 files will be stored on your smart phone’s local drive, so they’re not yours to keep, but as long as you keep paying the monthly fee, they’re there for you. Unlike Pandora, if you choose an artist for a station, it can be just that artist, with you making the choice as to how many other artists are introduced into the station using their “MOG Mobius” music engine (yeah, we don’t know what that means either).
If you visit their site, you can try a three-day, no commitment trial to see if it’s something you might be into. At the end of the day, it seems like this will soon become the preferred way to listen to music on a portable device. Whether subscription-based, or the “cloud” computing method, where all your music will be stored on a central server for you to access, buying it on a computer and plugging your phone in to access it may be a thing of the past before too long.
