Out of Storage on Your Mobile Device? Here Are Two Solutions

Unless you’re carrying around an iPod Classic, you probably don’t have enough room to hold your entire music collection on your device.  There are two ways around this.

First, you can subscribe to a streaming music service like Songza, Rdio, Slacker or any number of offerings.  These services have access to tens of millions of songs.  For most of us, streaming services are the ideal solution for accessing music wherever we are–unless you’re looking to listen to music that’s not yet part of this huge celestial jukebox.

Let’s say you’re a record producer who wants to listen to mixes of some tracks which you’re working on.  Or maybe you’re a musician working on new material.  Or let’s say you want access to unreleased demos, radio programs, bootlegs and recordings of, er, sketchy legal provenance.  What do you do then?  You might try an app called MyMusicCloud.

USA Today has a look at the service here.

    Mentioned it a few times here, and while it’s not idiot-proof, Subsonic lets you stream your collection from your home computer to your phone (or any other location). No monthly fees, but it does require a one-time donation to make ads go away.

    I’ve used it DJ parties too when asked without warning.
