Update to iTunes alternatives

I said I am looking for alternatives to iTunes and I promised I’d test Loop for Vox. Well I tested it but it’s not for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a well done service but it missed two key features for me:

  • iPhone app doesn’t upload music to the cloud, only Mac app does
  • I don’t see the files.

I realize the latter reflects my paranoia about disappearing files. This also points me into the right direction. I need a tool à la Dropbox, that allows me to see my music files. That way I am not locked into the platform. If I find a different storage solution I just move the files, point the client app to the new location, and I am done.

I’ll keep looking and keep you posted. Let me know on Twitter if you have some suggestion.
