When you hear “Kazaa”, you probably think of the illegal peer-to-peer file sharing application that became so popular around 2001. What you might not remember is that the company took the legit route back in 2009 when it became a legal music subscription service.

The company recently launched an iPhone application which allows you to stream music, just like you can with Rdio, Pandora, or Spotify. The downside? There’s a membership fee of $10/month to use the app…

“With Kazaa you can use your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to listen to unlimited, on-demand music everywhere. Play any of our millions of songs as much as you like, make your own playlists, listen to artist stations and discover new music that you love. Sync songs, albums and playlists to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and listen even when you’re offline. Search and find any song, album or artist, and start listening immediately.”

The app is available for free in the App Store. As mentioned above, you will have to fork over $10/month to enjoy the service. It seems that there are cheaper alternatives to Kazaa, but maybe the nostalgic you will want to give it a try. As for me, I’ll pass.

Will you give it a try?

    I’ll stick to mediafire.com

  • Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Why Pay?

    I can upload all the songs I want to my iPod.

    Very soon, iCloud will store all my music, and I can download songs that I own, which are not on my device to play. I get 5 GB free and for $25/year I get 200 GB of storage on iCloud.

    But, Kazaa wants me to pay $10/mo – terrible timing for a Business plan that must have been written back in 2009! Don’t buy stock (if they sell stock shares).

    Jailbroken iPhone/iPod users can download GrooveShark from the BigBoss repo. It’s free for 14 days. Then you have to pay a monthly fee of I don’t know how many bucks.

    OR…

    You can create a new account every 14 days (TROLL FACE), which isn’t that much of a pain in the ass. If that’s stealing, then let God judge me.
