Lala bringing streaming music service into App Store

updated 05:35 pm EDT, Tue October 27, 2009

Songs can be streamed forever for 10 cents each

Lala is readying an iPhone app that will serve as a portal for the company's music services, according to the Associated Press. The app will allow users to purchase the right to stream songs for $0.10 each, which pays for an unlimited number of plays. The sound quality, however, is lower than standard iTunes MP3s.

The app is said to allow users to listen to content while away from a cellular connection. The company's standard provides an option to download the MP3 for $0.89, although it is unclear if this will be extended to the iPhone platform.

Lala is aiming to release the app sometime in November, as it is awaiting approval from the App Store review team.

    Aaah, more quality journalism from MacNN.

    There's no such thing as "standard iTunes MP3s". iTunes uses the AAC format.

    Re: AAC

    Itunes uses both MP3s and AACs. There is no 'standard'. There is a 'default', but that is different.
