The Thumbplay music service has updated their Android app so even if you’re out of wireless coverage to stream music, you can cache particular songs locally on your phone to listen to whenever you want. Thumbplay still syncs up with your desktop and web collection wirelessly, and offers iTunes playlist importing and a music discovery engine.
Slacker has already offered this function for awhile on both Android and BlackBerry, but that’s more of a radio experience that automatically picks tunes rather than a service that relies on manual selection.
As far as costs go, Thumbplay Music is a subscription service that runs $9.99/month, but gives you access to their full library. On the downside, it’s only available in the U.S. Head over to Thumbplay’s site for download links to Android, iPhone and BlackBerry apps.
