Storing media in a private cloud to stream through a web browser is the latest in technology. By maintaining media online, there is no need to download software or take up storage space on a user’s hard drive.
The Cloud Web Player looks much like iTunes. Adding media is easy and progress may be monitored by hovering your cursor over the upload key. The program uploads two files at a time. As soon as media is uploaded, it may be played from the library.
A user’s dashboard indicates an account overview, including recent media files added, subscription plan, and library manager. Links to recent blog entries provide updated information from the site.
The interface is uncluttered and is intuitive, especially to those familiar with iTunes.
A username, email, and password are necessary for registration. An activation email is sent to complete the process.
A free evaluation package with 1 GB of storage and unlimited streaming, cloud web player, last.fm + Twitter, and Marketplace is available. The Basic package is $3.99/month and offers 11 GB storage, the same features as the free plan plus API and Mobile Web access and Library Manager. The Standard Plan, at $7.99/month has 26 GB of storage with the addition of YouTube, Multiformat support, and download abilities. The Ultra plan is $9.99/month and has 151 GB of storage and the addition of Dropbox support.
Digital media lovers who would like to take advantage of cloud media storage and third party integration will appreciate AudioBox. The variety of plans offers something for every type of listener, from the casual occasional listener to the hardcore media fan. People who want access to their media from multiple computers may also benefit as the media is housed online rather than on a hard drive.
