Cloud Music Player – SkyDrive, Box.com, Dropbox, Google Drive, developed by Willengale Solutions Ltd, is the best cloud music player I have tried yet. It lets you connect to all of the hot and free storage companies and stream music directly from those services.
I typically store music on Dropbox, because I have a lot of space and use it all of the time. Unfortunately I do not utilize it to stream music as you don’t really have that many options and you have to click on the next song for it to start playing. With the Cloud Music Player app you can easily select all of your music from within Dropbox, press play, and relax. It will continue playing all of your songs in a specific folder until you stop. You can even play the songs in the background so you can do other things on your iPhone at the same time.
If for some reason you do not have an internet connection such as on an airplane, you can download all of the songs directly into the app and play them in offline mode. This is great if you just got a new song and didn’t have time to transfer it to your music app.
The only issues I have found so far is that you cannot play DRM protected music that was purchased through iTunes. Luckily most of the new music is DRM free, but it is expected that this would be an issue. Also your only options are mp3, aac, m4a, wav, aiff, m4r, mp4, caf, mov; but those are most commonly used anyways.
If you have some of these storage accounts with some free space and are interested in streaming, Cloud Music Player – SkyDrive, Box.com, Dropbox, Google Drive is the app you need. It will cost you $2.99 but is a great price since it is almost like iTunes Match at a fraction of the price. Check it out on the Apple App Store today.
