If you’ve got your music stored in the cloud, then streaming it to your iPhone might be difficult. Depending on which service you use, you may need to find a third-party app — one that actually works well, and is designed specifically for music playback. AudioBox is exactly that.

Compatible with a whole host of cloud-based storage services — including Google Drive, SkyDrive, Box, and Dropbox — AudioBox ensures that you can take your entire music library with you on your iPhone.

AudioBox isn’t just another file management app that has a somewhat functional built-in music player; it’s actually dedicated to music playback, and it’s packed full with great features. What’s more, it’ll stream your music from AudioBox Cloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, SoundCloud, Box, and even YouTube — one app does it all.

You don’t have to enjoy these services one at a time, either. If you have music stored in Google Drive and in Dropbox, you can sign into both and access both libraries simultaneously. It’s like a Spotify or Rdio service, where you’re in control of the music catalog.

Some of the app’s features include Retina artwork, AirPlay support, background streaming, artwork and track information, pre-buffering, lyrics integration, gapless playback, and the ability to share the tracks and albums you’re listening to via your favorite social network.

You may already be familiar with AudioBox — it’s been available as a web-based app for desktops for quite some time. But this is its first leap onto mobile, and if you ask me, it’s off to a great start.
