    For those of you who are holding onto that $7.99 introductory offer for Google Music All-Access, there's now a new app that'll play from our streaming source called Cloud Play for Google Music (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloud-play-for-google-music/id595909793?mt=8). I've been using gMusic for a while and I detest it. There's always something wrong with that app. This new app has been updated for iOS 7 and is fast and intuitive, with all the features of Google Music available. Plus, it's made by a college student, of which I love supporting.

    Check it out, All-Access subscribers!

    Are you Daniel Jackson promoting?? I think I will wait for the inevitable official Google Music App for iOS...but thanks for sharing. iOS does need a good Google Music app, so far they have all been pretty pants.

    Edit - just bought it anyway to try! Very good! Although,,,gMusic has a nice update coming too...

    Not at all. This morning I took a chance on the app after growing increasingly frustrated with gMusic with each passing day. Also, waiting for the official app and not having access to All-Access on mobile is becoming ridiculous IMHO. I understand it should be coming soon, but paying $8/month to only be able to play it on my Mac when I'm mostly using my iPhone or iPad seems silly to me.

    It used to be really good, and now it's just not working for me at all. Most frustrating is not seeking tracks well at all, stopping playback, not handling wifi-cellular handoff well, and not being able to browse an artist's discography from my library without seeing songs "disappearing" in the UI. Just ridiculous. I understand the iOS 7 app should be coming soon, but the developer let me know he discovered a nasty bug that renders the whole UI unusable and must fix it before sending the update to Apple. Again, waiting is cool, but when there's a better alternative, some may be willing to try it out.

    Cloud Play is good in the meantime. I like it a lot.

    There is an alternative, check out Gear in the App Store.
