Everyone from Amazon to Google to Microsoft to Apple and dozens of others want us to store our files, music, documents in the cloud for a monthly fee. What I really want is a way to get all more music sources from a single click. That’s what CloudPlay does.
Click The Menubar For Music
What CloudPlay does is give you one-click access and simple pop down controls to multiple music sources. Get music from iTunes, YouTube and many other sources.
Click on CloudPlay in the Mac’s Menubar. Select from curated playlists or create your own and mix and match tracks.
CloudPlay gives you search options, too, so finding music online is faster and easier than using iTunes (but CloudPlay controls iTunes music, too).
Tracks can be shared online to Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, and Mail. The CloudPlay player hides out of the way when you switch to a different app.
One feature alone makes it worth the price of admission. CloudPlay lets you make playlists for your favorite music, or use playlists from other sites like Console.FM.
And, your playlist can feature music from different sources at the same time.
Of course, you can choose music from a few thousand online radio stations, SoundCloud, as well.
CloudPlay features last.FM scribbling, Apple Remote support, the Mac’s media keys, and an assignable hotkey to open the player from the Menubar.
This is an app worth trying if you use your Mac to play music and you’re tired of iTunes. Why doesn’t Apple provide CloudPlay functionality in OS X?
