There’s a partial but engaging review on Wired’s Gadgetlab about Google’s Music Beta service and how a elementary US$2 app, BoxyTunes , does all you hoped Google’s service would do but doesn’t.
Music Beta was launched final week at Google’s I/O Developer discussion . It now usually functions in web browsers and on Android devices. The web-based service does not work on iOS gadgets since it uses Flash.
BoxyTunes, on the other hand, simply streams any music, podcasts or audiobooks it finds in your Dropbox printed matter to your iOS device. It allows you to set up playlists of tunes in your Dropbox, use your earbud controls as if you were listening to iTunes and attend to song in the credentials whilst conducting other tasks.
And if Music Beta does ever advance to iOS devices, Wired writer Charlie Sorrel points to a other future value of BoxyTunes. Uploads might be faster as Dropbox creates an MD5 crush of every record you upload and won’t upload a second duplicate if that record already exists on their servers.
