Those using the gMusic app on iOS may want to grab their device (whether it be an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad) and fire up the App Store — an update has come available for download. This latest update for gMusic arrives as version 1.5 and it brings more than a handful of changes and enhancements including a brand new offline mode and portrait view on the iPad. Additionally, the remainder of the “what’s new” list breaks down as follows;
Full playlist editing!
Thumbs up Feature! (Loves for last.fm as well)
Swipe to show the menu.
New album View!
Progress bar now shows the buffer progress.
Previous button now works like the standard music app.
And what app update would be complete without the bug fixes? In this instance, this update promises that offline music will no longer disappear and scrolling with be smoother as well as how various “minor” bugs have been taken care of.
With that, gMusic is a really wonderful Google Music app for iOS. And even nicer, the app is priced (reasonably) at $1.99. The gMusic app is universal with support for the iPhone and iPad and comes with the requirement of iOS 4.1 or later for use.
And just as a side note, I was having some trouble with the app yesterday afternoon and sent off a tweet to complain. Nothing really, just venting my frustration and well, the folks over at Interactive Innovation reached out within minutes and had my problems solved. Always nice to get solid support — especially when you were not necessarily looking for it.
