I’ve been keeping an eye on the gMusic Twitter account all week. Last year the app was first to iOS with support for Google’s cloud-based Music storage, and I knew it’d be the same way this year with support for Google’s new All Access subscription service.
That support arrived today in the form of gMusic 6.0. And in addition to ‘All Access’ access, the update brings a number of useful playback and management features like the ability to create and play radio stations, and to search for/ add music to your library… Read More

Google rolled out a new scan-and-match feature for Google Music, the search giant’s cloud-based music store and storage service, to the US today. The feature, which was been available in Europe for a while now, will scan a user’s music collection on their computer, and quickly rebuild it in the cloud for cross-device streaming. It’s a lot like iTunes Match actually, except Google isn’t charging for it… Read More

Remember Google Music? Back in May, Google unveiled a beta version of its cloud-based music service that allows users to upload up to 20,000 songs to its servers. Users can then access that music from almost any device with a web connection.
A major downside to the service is that it hasn’t had a native iOS app. It’s had a web app of sorts, but never an actual application. Until now. Macgasm is reporting that gMusic, a native Google Music app, has just surfaced in the App Store… Read More

As many of you know, I’ve been an avid jailbreaker of my iPhone ever since it was announced that jailbreaking was officially legal.
True, I never really thought the whole “illegal” aspect had a leg to stand on in the first place, but I do my best to play within the rules.
Now that jailbreaking has become a part of my life, a viewer inquires about the possibility of it going away as time moves forward. I consider this prospect, and many other questions in Episode 07 of Ask Jeff… Read More

Oh Google, you so crazy! After leaving us iPhone users out in the cold while our Android-toting brethren run around streaming their music from this thing they like to call ‘the cloud’ (it’s a bit like iCloud, I’m told!) you finally decide to bring the Google Music circus to iOS.
In typical Google fashion, things have been implemented a little differently than how we expected. Google Music for iOS isn’t a native app, but rather a web app. And it’s pretty darn good one… Read More
