Long known as a music blogging site and network for iPod junkies, MOG
stepped up its game this morning, by unveiling a new, slick, cloud-based music service for iPhones and Androids. The application is free, though it requires a $10 a month subscription to MOG's digital downloading service, which would connect to clients' mobile phones and home computers. But that's a bargain, said reviewers at Wired
, who were all a-tizzy. Advantages of the MOG app? Well, it's cheap, for one thing. Such mobile subscriptions typically run to $15 a month, or more. Plus it offers a capacious library of eight million songs, all available sans a USB cable. Tech geeks also applauded MOG for expunging all Digital Rights Management (DRM) protections. As MOG CEO David Hyman assured in an interview with Billboard
, "We want to make it ridiculously easy."
