The Gmail app for iOS isn’t known for speed. The app previously only fetched new messages when someone opened the app or went straight to a new message from the notification window. Now, Gmail on an iOS 7 device will have true background refreshing by having the latest messages downloaded into the app and viewable the moment someone enters his or her inbox. Gmail users can download the app from the App Store to trigger the update, but they may need to take one extra step to ensure that it works. Read More »

Google Play Music is a music streaming service that combines all of the popular music formats into one app. It has millions of songs from major record labels that you can listen to at any moment, creates Pandora-style personal radio stations based on an artist, and lets you upload 20,000 of your personal music collection to store in the cloud. And it’s available now for the iPhone.

Play Music has been an Android exclusive until now, but Google has released an app that lets iPhone users listen to any song in Google’s music library and supplement their own collection to fill in the gaps. The All Access feature, which provides the on-demand music listening of Google’s library and radio stations without ads or skip limits, requires a $9.99 monthly fee. If you just plan to upload your personal collection of 20,000 songs or less, you can still enjoy Google Play Music without paying.

Other features include:

  • Listen to unlimited songs
  • Create custom radio stations from any song, artist or album
  • Enjoy radio without skip limits
  • Get smart recommendations based on your tastes
  • Enjoy handcrafted playlists from our music experts
  • Downloading songs for offline listening

Google has made Play Music available in more than 20 countries. A list of the supported markets is available here.
