One of the things I often wonder about my children is who their hero’s are. Hero’s today are so different that we we might have thought of them 20, 30, 50 years ago. Each generation had a hero they could look to, a figure, an ideal someone that held the vlaues of a generation for our children […]
Google’s music streaming service arrives on iOS looking familiar, but missing a couple of features
Google Play Music finally arrived on the iOS App Store late last week, giving iPhone owners the opportunity to access Google’s library of streaming music on their devices. Over at our sister site iMore they’ve been putting Google Play Music for iPhone through its paces, and they’ve found it closely matches the Android version in terms of playback and basic functionality, as well as looks. From iMore’s Richard Devine:
“If you’re a user of any of Google’s other iOS applications then you’ll feel immediately at home with this. It’s attractive to look at, and very distinctively Google. The white cards on light gray background is clean and crisp with the Google Play Music signature orange highlights adding just the right splash of color. It’s basically a carbon copy of Google’s own Android app, and it’s so incredibly silky smooth to navigate around. The sliding motion of the menu coming out from the side, the player view minimising, general scrolling up-and-down and side-to-side is all without flaw. I actually think it performs slightly better than the Android version. But it isn’t the only Google app that could be said of.”
However it isn’t all smooth sailing — there’s no in-app purchase support, which means you can’t buy content or subscribe to All Access from within the app. That’s likely due to Google not wanting to share a cut of profits with Apple. So listening to your existing stuff is easy to do, but if you want to buy more you’ll need to fire up the web interface.
Check out iMore’s full review for the lowdown on Google Play Music for iPhone.

Sometimes part of the genealogy challenge can be staying on task. Recently it has been a lot of focus on my Kobler roots, but I have a whole side of my family on my mother side, the Albats, family that I don’t know as much about as I wish I did. On that side I am proud […]
