BlackBerry gets music streaming from Sugarsync

Online file storage service Sugarsync now offers music streaming from the cloud--a feature previously limited to the iPhone--to BlackBerry devices.


Music cloud services seem to be all the rage for iPhones and Android phones these days. However, perhaps due to its reputation as a business device, the BlackBerry has been left out in the cold in most cases. Luckily, if you use this particular mobile OS, Sugarsync doesn't want your life to be all work and no play.

The online file storage service announced Tuesday that its latest Sugarsync app for BlackBerry supports streaming from the music cloud. Functionality seems a bit limited in that you can only play albums from start to finish, but it's a step in the right direction. Plus, music streamed through the app can play in the background while you use other features on the device.

The update also includes a couple of other improvements in the form of e-mail address autocomplete and some minor bug fixes. Sugarsync offers a variety of storage plans ranging from $5 to $40 per month.
