When you bop between your work and home computers all the time, it’s tough keeping your favourite music at your fingertips (“Which computer has my Once More, With Feeling soundtrack on it?”) AudioBox lets you listen to your music from anywhere.
(Click the image above for a closer look.)
AudioBox is a web-based media player that puts your music (and, eventually, movies) in the cloud so you can access it from any computer with an internet connection and standard browser. Just upload your favourite media files to AudioBox’s secure server, and stream them anytime you want to hear one of your favourite tunes. In fact, you can also access your music via your mobile browser (the company says an official iPhone app is in the works).
Uploading files is easy-peasy. Just locate music on your computer’s hard drive and send files to AudioBox in batches or one at a time. Create and delete playlists, shuffle and repeat songs, or filter by artist, song or genre. The app supports drag and drop, so organising your media files is a snap.
Currently AudioBox is free while it’s in beta, and you’re limited to 250MB of storage with file size limits of 50MB. Once the service is ready for prime time, various pricing plans will let you buy more storage and upload larger files.
AudioBox is still a little buggy during the testing phase and, of course, you shouldn’t use it to store files that are super-important to you. If you’re looking for a way to grab some your favourite music whenever the mood strikes though, then AudioBox is definitely worth checking out.
