MusicDog for iPhone brings free streaming music app to Cydia [Jailbreak]
MusicDog, a completely free music streaming app, is now available via Cydia. Version 1.3 only works on iOS 4.x. and features include:
- Multitasking support
- A growing library with over 100,000+ tracks that can be searched and bookmarked
- Album Art
- "What's Hot" and "Recently Added" lists
- iPod and remote headset control
The app requires you to make an account by adding an email address and password before you are ready to go.
Along with GrooveShark, MusicDog adds to the growing number of streaming services available only though Jailbreak. Do these types of services make you more likely to Jailbreak your iPhone? Does it put pressure on Apple to get their own iTunes streaming service off the ground? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below or discuss it in our brand new Jailbreak Apps Forum!

Um... Duh. Lol.
Apple putting the app on the app store is the same as them putting up a Limewire app.
It's the equivalent of painting a big red target on their back for the music industry to aim at.
If Grooveshark couldn't make it in the app store, this app never even had a chance.
Overall, I'll probably keep this app around for sampling music before I buy from Amazon or iTunes, but I won't be using this as a go-to app for listening to music on a regular basis. Definitely not the streaming music app I'd like to see.
