gMusic adds new offline mode, playlist editing

IIS has released an update to gMusic, its unofficial Google Music player for iOS adding support for offline listening, playlist editing and more. gMusic is a native iOS app for the Google Music service allowing users to listen to their cloud-based Google Music library streamed to their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Although Google Music can be accessed via an HTML 5 web app in the Safari browser on the iPhone and iPod touch, gMusic provides additional features that only a native app can provide such as “Now Playing” lock screen integration on iOS 5 and offline support. The latest update, gMusic 1.5 adds a new offline mode and the ability to edit playlists directly from within the app and also introduces support for the “Thumbs up” feature for rating tracks in a user’s Google Music library. Several UI enhancements have also been added including support for portrait view on the iPad, a new album view and more. gMusic 1.5 is a universal app requiring iOS 4.1 or later and is available from the App Store for $2.
