UK mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse is the latest company to set its sights on the cloud music space, via a service called My Hub.Its iPhone app has just gone live, promising users that it “allows you to listen to your music collection when and where you want to. You can organize your music, create playlists and rate your favorite content”.The My Hub website gives more details: the service offers 2GB of free storage, but for music “Its clever technology means you don’t have to re-upload all your tracks, so you don’t have to worry about how many gigabytes storage your music collection takes up. It just works out what you already have on your computer and makes the same track available on your My Hub account”. Interesting.UPDATE: The app has been removed from the App Store, and Music Ally has confirmed that it was a test, rather than a commercial launch.Incidentally, the overall My Hub service is run for Carphone by a company called Spare Backup, which last month announced a partnership with Catch Media to use its Play Anywhere cloud music platform. So we can safely say that it’s Play Anywhere that’s being used for the My Hub music app. Or at least which will be used, once it’s officially launched.More screenshots below:
