Spotify streaming music mobile demo for Android [Video]

Spotify, who provide a free music streaming service, have demonstrated their new mobile client on the T-Mobile G1.  The new Android app - which is yet to be released - allows tracks to be synchronized with the handset for offline playback, meaning that even without WiFi or cellular data music can be played back. The app also supports on-device searches and custom playlists, with straightforward access to the company's huge catalog of tracks.  It's also synchronized with their existing desktop app, meaning you can search for and add a track on the desktop and have it sync for offline playback on the cellphone. As a desktop Spotify user, this is just what I've been waiting for.  The company has previously said that they'd be requiring mobile users to sign up for their premium service (which cuts out the adverts that intermittently pop up for free account holders) and frankly this looks well worth it.  No word on when we could expect to see a release; they're promising more details at Google I/O.

Slacker Radio revamps look, adds ringtone option (for Verizon only)

In case you've forgotten that it exists, in the wake of Spotify, Pandora, and even Jay-Z's attempt at music streaming (Tidal), Slacker Radio is still alive and kicking, and apparently, not slacking off.

Rithm has been in beta for some time now, but finally they're ready to take on the world, with a price tag that might attract those hold-outs for a paying service and a built-in messaging service that encourages sharing music with your friends.

Gramophone is your music player materially designed

Because music streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, etc are all the craze right now, we sometimes forget that people also still store actual music on their mobile devices. For those who prefer the "old school" way of listening to music, they usually use their phone or tablet's native music player. But if you have the option, why not go for music apps that may be able to give you much more. Gramophone is presenting itself to you as a likely candidate for your next music player.
