Mog will give you a certain number of free listens to songs per month out of their 11 million+ song collection, and you can earn additional free listens by interacting with advertisers or interacting socially on their site.
Follow the title link for an Engadget item with further details.
In addition to their iOS and Android mobile apps, Mog now has a Mac app that can run on your Apple desktop or laptop. They’ll have a Windows version coming soon according to their e-mail release.
Facebook will be partnering with Spotify, Mog, Rhapsody, Slacker, and rdio amongst others to more tightly integrate listening to and sharing music with your friends and family.
Seems like a bit of a yawn to me because for the most part the people I know on Facebook aren’t the ones I share music tastes with, but it will be interesting to see where this goes.
Users of Boxee’s service who are also subscribers to Mog can now play music via Mog through Boxee. Follow the headline link for details.
Very detailed comparison of Spotify to Mog. The author ends up preferring Mog. I haven’t read closely to see if I agree with his reasoning or not, but definitely looks worth checking out!
Mog’s Android app was updated recently. Notes from their blog for the update are:
Android app update now available! Release dates, better downloads, and other snazzy stuff. We’ve released a new update to the MOG app that adds information and functionality to the MOG experience for Android users. It’s available for download now from the Market.
Quick summary of changes:
* Artist’s album lists may be viewed and sorted by release date, alphabetically by title, or popularity
* Album release year shown where appropriate
* Bluetooth AVRCP now supported: skip to next track or previous track, play/pause
* Wired headphone remote play/pause now supported
* We rewrote the download queue, so users should no longer have missed or incomplete downloads
* Fixed issues affecting playback on Motorola Atrix and Motorola Droid X2
* Minor fixes to the user interface
One label’s not-so-positive reaction to Spotify and how it thinks it affects their artists.
Although this article doesn’t mention it, these artists’ work still appears on Rhapsody, Mog, Rdio, and Napster. Does this mean these services pay the artists better, or is the label merely trying to get more money out of Spotify?
Interesting article on subscription services in the US, and how Spotify’s entry is affecting things.
The US version of Spotify has partially implemented the Artist Radio feature that European users have been enjoying.
Unlike some 3rd party toolsets that have helped fill this gap for the first couple weeks Spotify has been available, this is integrated right into the UI and is convenient to use.
After searching for an Artist, you’ll sometimes see an ‘Artist Radio’ tab to the right of the Overview tab you initially see. It’s still a simplistic feature compared to some of the more powerful offerings by Mog, rdio, and Slacker, but it’s a nice start!
