The new trend in smartphones appears to be streaming music service. This goes beyond the traditional ones, such as Pandora and Slacker. Instead, the trend involves streaming music from your own music library. Amazon started by offering its MP3 upload service, and Google followed with Google Music. Apple, too, has a storage locker option for iPhone users. It’s absolutely certain that RIM will create its own service, or acquire another one. In the meantime, BlackBerry users who want to stream their own music libraries can check out Cloud Player to get a little taste of the action. The service is pretty straight forward, meaning you can get to the fun part pretty quickly. First you’ll go to cloudplayer.me and create an account. That’s a quick one-step process, where you’ll enter your email and make a password. After that you’ll be prompted to download the desktop app, which is available for both PC and Mac. Open up the app, and you can upload music from any folder on your computer. To play your library over the air on your BlackBerry, just head to App World and download the Cloud Player app. That should about take care of it. Once our songs upload you can start playing them on your BlackBerry, via either WiFi or your regular 3G connection. According to CrackBerry there will be future updates, too, including social features and a PlayBook versions. I’m confident that RIM will come in with a superior native offering, but until then Cloud Player can tide you over.
