Mog just put out a bugfix release for their Android client, which is always welcome, but the big news is Napster has put out a major release for both their iOS and Android apps simultaneously.
This new release includes a welcome redesign of their Now Playing queue, as well as some nice new touches throughout the app. Follow the link to the release notes above for more details.
The BIGGEST news by far: they now let you fast forward and rewind through a song. Their competition have had this feature for awhile (although with mixed success in terms of reliability), so this is a huge addition for Napster, and fills in what I considered the biggest gap in their mobile clients’ capabilities.
Additional welcome new features include easier access to metadata for artists including new releases, similar artists, and biographical info.
Some interesting details on Spotify’s ongoing negotiations with US labels.
Napster has a new release for Android that includes the following new capabilities:
Rhapsody put out a bug fix release for Android. Follow the link for details.
The latest release of Mog for Android and iPhone has some great new features (much more capabilities around favorites, for example), but has also been prone to more than a few glitches while in use. I’m very happy to see they just came out with a bug fix release on Android, and I hope it takes care of some of the issues I’ve been seeing.
I’m getting ready to start posting my initial views on the various apps, with Mog being the first. So, I’m installing this on my Droid Incredible while typing this blog post, and will give it a thorough run through and then post my capsule review near the end of this week.
Continuing their trend of rapid updates, Rdio has another bug fix release for Android out now, v0.8.1. Their changelog doesn’t list the details of this release, at least not right now, but the appmarket description says:
* Fix for crash on startup on Android 1.6 devices
* Attempt to fix slowdown/OutOfMemory errors on some Android devices.
I like their honesty in saying “Attempt to fix…”! :-)
Both Rdio and Rhapsody had bug fix releases for their Android applications yesterday. (It almost seems these companies all have synchronized releases, doesn’t it!)
Android users of either application should check the market for the latest versions if they don’t have automatic updating turned on.
Follow the link on details regarding a major new release for Thumbplay’s desktop app. Looks interesting!
Mog just came out with a major v1.00 release on Android that added the ability to manage favorites from your Android device, as well as a radically redesigned UI and a scrubber bar for quickly moving forward/backward within a song.
As usual with ambitious releases there were a few bugs, hitches and other issues. Mog has quickly addressed some of those by issuing a v1.03 release today that takes care of some of them. It’s available now in the Android market.
