Apple freaks (and you know who you are) can freak out, because the new MOG Music HTML5 player that was launched earlier this year has just been issued as an Apple desktop app. That means you can install it on your Apple computer and run all of your music through the app. Windows peeps ... one is coming soon for that side.
The interface has grown larger, with more useable features like a MOG Facebook integration and a player that works across all mobile devices, including the iPad. This is also the first substantial upgrade to the MOG service since they launched their mobile app last Summer.
The MOG app also integrated artist pages and more information about each artist into the player itself, something that existed outside of the old MOG player. Users would have to go to the regular MOG site to look up info on artists. The new release list is also integrated into the player now, making it easier to look up this week's new releases.
What else is in the MOG app? Higher fidelity audio with 320 KBS, Apple's media keys are in use for play/pause/skip backward & forward and you can use an Apple remote to control playback. It also has built-in AirPlay support so you can stream using Airport Express, AppleTV, or anything Airplay-enabled.
It would be easy to say that this is part of the run up to a Facebook Music launch, [LINK] one that would see a sharing of playlists across major players like MOG, Rdio, Spotify and Rhapsody.
