The team behind the gMusic app has pushed an update this week to include Google Play Music All Access for iOS users as well.
With the new update, the Google Play Music All Access will be available on iPhones, iPads and iPods Touch, allowing the app to stream music accessing all features included in the Android Google Music app.
Google Play Music All Access is a service that debuted earlier this month at the tech giant's annual Google I/O conference. With a monthly subscriber fee, users can stream "radio" access to the full Google Music library.
The iOS app called gMusic debuted back in October 2011 as an app that basically serves as a player for songs in the Google Music library. Now, gMusic also acts as a client for Google Play Music All Access for users who have a subscription to the service.
The developer team behind gMusic, meanwhile, made several tweaks and improvements to the app since its launch, and now gMusic is more pleasant and user-friendly. The new update to version 6.0 brings a new user interface that's significantly friendlier and serves as a great alternative for the built-in music player for iOS. The updated gMusic also sports smoother icons within the app, cleaner lines and a neat overall design.
One thing that's still missing, however, is an update to Google's new use interface. The developer team behind Google Music updated the user interface (UI) for the Android app at Google I/O 2013, but the iOS version remains one step behind. The Android app's updated UI is gesture-friendly and far cleaner, on par with the recently updated Google Play store.
The new version of the app also brings the ability to create and play radio stations right within the app, as well as the ability to search, add and listen to music on one's library from within the app. The new gMusic app is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running iOS 5.0 or newer. The new Google Play Music All Access-enabled version of gMusic comes as a free update. The gMusic app itself costs $1.99 from iTunes (link to app in fourth paragraph).
