Music for the iPhone is set to get a burst of new streamy, cloudy goodness thanks to iMeem. The ad-supported streaming music service has been available on Google’s Android platform but not for the iPhone, making Last.fm the most significant streaming app on iPhone right now. But all that might change when iMeem introduces its app, which apparently has been submitted for approval by Apple and is expected to become available by May 20. The site lets users access 20,000 tracks from their own music collection – uploaded to iMeem’s servers – for USD $99 a yea: in addition users can create custom playlists, gain music recommendations and download songs from iTunes. Unfortunately iPhone applications cannot currently run in the background, meaning that the iMeem app won’t be a competitor to the music-playing iPod capability of the iPhone, which does run in the background.
