Public Beta for tunesBag

tunesBag is letting its public beta out of the bag, following around one year of invitation-only access, and the social-music service allows registered users to upload their music collections to a cloud and to play tracks from anywhere, TechCrunch reports.

Users can also share individual song and play lists with other users via email, Facebook, or Twitter.

The Vienna, Austria-based start-up offers a basic, ad-supported version free-of-charge with 1 gigabyte of space or an ad-free paid version with up to 200 GB of storage, higher streaming bit rates and a desktop uploader, according to TechCrunch.

tunesBag told TechCrunch it will only make its sharing features accessible in countries where sharing of tracks is covered by licensing agreements, checking via IP address, and it will search for music from other sources, such as YouTube.
