Ubuntu One Music App Comes to iPhone

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The Ubuntu One Music Streaming†app for iPhone is now available†for†download.

The Ubuntu One Music app allows users with music stored in their Ubuntu One account to listen to those tracks on†their iPhones, iPods and iPad.

The application itself blends a sleek interface with all of the features you’d expect; you can browse/search tracks by artist, album, or song title; you can make playlists; and the usual combo of skip/shuffle/repeat†functions†give you great playback control.

The app is also able to cache tracks for offline listening and supports Apple’s AirPlay technology.

The Catch (which isn’t really a catch at all)

Whilst the app itself is free to download, the use of music streaming requires a $3.99/month subscription to the †Ubuntu One music service, which entitles you to†20GB of†storage†space. A free months trial is also available should you be interested but not yet sold on the service.

The Android version of the Ubuntu One Music application is already available from the Android Market.
