New Featured MOG App Brings Users Unlimited Music On-Demand and the Ultimate Listening Experience

BERKELEY, Calif., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- MOG, the best on-demand music listening service, today announced the beta release of its music player for the Chrome Web Store, a featured app in the new Chrome Web Store, an online marketplace where users can search, browse and use web-based applications and extensions. For under $5 a month, users will enjoy the speed and simplicity of the new app which now offers unlimited music discovery and playback in one spot, and the best music listening experience on the Web.  

The MOG app for the Chrome Web Store, which leverages HTML5 technology, provides users with a sleek new interface to search, browse and play unlimited music, on-demand from a vast catalog of close to 10 million songs and nearly one million albums. The new player's fast performance delivers music instantly and users will enjoy a graphically rich and high quality listening experience. The app is supported on both Chrome and Safari browsers.

"HTML5 is the future of browser-based technology, and users will love the experience that our new simplified and slick player offers," said David Hyman, founder and CEO of MOG.  "Users will continue to enjoy the same unlimited access to all the music they want with the added bonus of blazing fast delivery, and an integrated discovery and playback experience vs. a separate pop-out MOG player.
