Apple Quietly Launches the iTunes Cloud.. Kind of…

If you are a member of MobileMe you may have noticed that you can now upload mp3 files to your iDisk and play them from there.

Apple updated their MobileMe app in early July, and included in the update was a revision to the MobileMe service which adds the ability to “Play audio from your iDisk while using another app”.

The feature is very basic at the moment, as it doesn’t allow traditional iTunes syncing, cover art or playlists. But if you stop and think for a minute it kind of gives us a hint to Apple’s future plans.

It also kind of means that MobileMe is not going to be free anytime soon…

Have you tried playing music from your iDisk? Let us know about it in the comments…
