Music streaming service, Lala has been making news of late. Recently, the company partnered with Google in the latter's launch of a music service. TechCruncg is now reporting the impending release of Lala's app for the iPhone.
Lala is a music service that lets users upload all their MP3 collection on to their online account to access them from anywhere. Users can also purchase new music for 10 cents a song.
TechCrunch writes that the app shall work pretty similiar to the native iPod app on the iPhone. However, one major difference between the two is that Lala's music stream entirely from the cloud.
That means, while there is no hassle of syncing your music constantly between your iPhone and your computer, the direct streaming could mean frequent interruptions if you have a patchy 3G connectivity in your area.
However, the company claims that the iPhone app intelligently caches a section of your library so that the listeners will seldom have interruptions while listening to streaming music.
As in the website, the Lala iPhone app also lets users stream any song for free exactly once before they are promted to purchase. And if you happen to like a song, the app also lets you to publish the song you are listening to on to your Facebook wall.
The Lala iPhone app is currently in the queue for Apple's approval. The fact that the iPhone app can stream music via a 3G network can get AT&T to cringe. But as we have seen a flurry of VoIP and streaming apps being approved in the past few weeks, this app should get through in all probability.
