If you’re using Android then you’re probably still waiting for your Zune Pass ;) OK done wit the digs. Thumbplay is a paid service that gives you access to some 9 million songs and they’ve now announced that included in that service is the ability to download music to your phone and play it locally so you don’t need to always stream it. So it should be better on battery life and of course, if you’re in an area of poor reception you can keep listening. They also note that they’ve “added a widget that makes it super easy to control your music and go about your business on Android – play games, check email, whatever. Think of it as a remote control for your phone.” There’s more to the app like a desktop companion, playlist builder, etc.
You can see Thumbplay in action in this video:
You can sign up for a free three day trial here. By the way, there’s also a Blackberry and iPhone version of Thumbplay.
