Native app brings HD audio to the PC desktop
Mog has posted a new app for Windows desktop owners. With it, subscribers can listen to music from the music service's catalog of over 14 million songs on their windows PC as well as their mobile device or Mac. The app features a native audio decoder for improved audio playback quality.
The app runs natively on the PC without a web interface. It can support HD audio with quality of up to 320 Kbps. As with the Mac version, it supports AirPlay to stream audio directly to any AirPlay-ready device, such as an Apple TV or stereo system.
Mog competes with other streaming music services including Rdio, Rhapsody, and Spotify. It has been struggling to make a profit and last month, it was reported to have put itself up for sale. Today, the company was rumored to have been purchased by Beats Audio for $12 million with funding from Beat's own investor HTC.
