Despite wild speculation and user interest, Apple has yet to launch any cloud-storage and streaming functionality to iTunes, but that’s not to say you’re completely out of luck if you want to access your music no matter where you are: a new cloud-based streaming site named Mougg has just launched, and best of all, it’s free to try out.
It’s a pretty simple process to try Mougg up. Just create an account with your name an email address and begin uploading your songs, up to a maximum storage capacity of 1GB. Once you’ve uploaded them, you can access Mougg’s web interface from any browser, which acts like any other basic media player, allowing you to create playlists, pause and play songs, skip tracks, loop your music or randomize your collection. You can even share the names of the songs you’re listening to on Twitter or Facebook, if you’re so inclined.
It’s still early days yet, and the 1GB limit on your music collection is obviously begging for a tiered pricing scheme, but so far, we’re impressed. An iPhone app is even on the way, although in the meantime, you can still access your tunes through Mobile Safari. I’m looking forward to seeing how Mougg continues to grow.
