Nokia Music web app for iOS reportedly spied in leaked images

Nokia, known primarily right now for their Windows Phone connection, is reportedly planning a full on Nokia Music web app experience for iOS and Android devices according to leaked images out of China. Nokia currently has a mobile specific web site for Nokia Music, but frankly it's pretty terrible and any improvement would be good improvement.

Nokia Music is best described as an iTunes Radio competitor for Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices. Rather than the Google or Spotify – or indeed Xbox Music – way of searching for and streaming albums, Nokia Music allows you to listen to preset or custom radio stations based on your musical tastes. The premium version, Nokia Music+ costs £3.99 a month and allows unlimited track skipping and unlimited offline playlists. It's a pretty solid music service with a great catalog and something that's very enjoyable to use on Windows Phone.

Aside from some leaked screenshots, all we're presented with otherwise is information that suggests web apps, and that there will also be some form of Mac client as well. Nothing concrete, no purported release dates, nothing else. So it's all speculation at this point, but to check out the images hit up the source link below. Would anyone use Nokia Music if it was more readily available for Mac and iOS?

Nokia Music web app for iOS reportedly spied in leaked images

So 2014 is looking to be the growth year for online radio/streaming services. 2015 will be the contraction year. I think that each platform will have one if it's own and then Pandora and Spotify for the cross platform.

Hmm interesting. I personally am a Spotify subscriber and extremely happy with it. They are the game to beat IMO

I don't see the point. Unless you went from a windows phone with this service to an iPhone who is going to use this?

Nokia made phones before Windows Phone that a lot of people bought. You never know. It's actually a pretty good service even at the free level.

I like the competitive nature of business - it can help make better products for consumers, however, with services like this, just one [iTunes] will do for this guy. It crushes my brain to have to keep up with multiple, similar services, regardless of appealing price-points.

I agree. I just hope that all the competition drives more innovation. We don't really need a dozen Spotify clones. I think Songza is a good example of innovation in the space. The concierge feature is a pretty good solution to a real problem that I have when firing up competing services like Spotify-- what am I even in the mood to listen to?

If Nokia music is just another me-too service without offering their own unique twist, Finland can keep it!

Well played! :D

It's good to see that there are getting more and more are offering music streaming services. A healthy competition = better services and a perhaps will result in a more competitive pricing.

Sounds about right. They are making maps and everything too with Nokia Here. It looks like they are looking to stay with game at least. More than what we can say for blackberry.

Hmmm, not sure how I feel about this. How popular is the service? I played with it on my 920 and found it to be missing a lot of content.
