If you ask a random individual to mention a cloud storage provider then I imagine an everyday person would only be able to pluck a handful of names out of their minds, with Dropbox probably being the most popular. Regardless of whether you love or hate the Dropbox service, it is by far one of the easiest to get up and running with and integrates extremely well with desktop and mobile operating systems.
If you are an iOS user who makes use of some Dropbox storage to keep media files safe, then it may be worth while considering the Tunebox iOS application as a must have installation on your device. It is a universal app meaning that it seamlessly works with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, giving great variety to users across all of their iOS based devices. The basic functionality of Tunebox is that it allows us to listen to all of the music that is stored in our Dropbox accounts, no matter where we are.
When installed, the application automatically has the power to organize all of the music stored in a Dropbox account that it is linked with, allowing users to filter through the stored files as if they were using any other media player software. Tracks can be viewed and filtered via song title, album name, artist title and genre as well as browsing by folder if the user finds that easier. MP3 and M4A music formats are supported by the app as well as instantly streaming the file from the cloud meaning that no download is required and no additional storage space is taken up on the device itself.
One of the great features of this app that will more than likely make it worthwhile to a lot of users is that the music can be sent to the background and listened to meaning that the app doesn’t always have to be the dominant one in view. A lot of other great music players exist on the App Store, but their need to be front and center at all times just makes them pretty much unusable. Tunebox sits on the App Store for $4.99, which some may seem as excessive. Tunebox for iOS can be downloaded from here.
