Here’s a no-brainer hack I posted on my Zedomax.Net blog that explains how GMail can be used for MP3 file storage and player:
(Of course, we might start seeing some software hackers take advantage over this and actually stream live MP3 Files to their iPhone/iPod Touch, great idea!)
Even better, you could open a separate GMail account just for your MP3s….wow what would happen if Google actually built this further to “sync” with iPod? Crazy…
Although many probably already have noticed now, GMail can be used to store your MP3 Files and play them without separate MP3 player such as WinAmp or Windows Media Player.
I am not sure if this will work on the iPhone but it’s definitely a great idea if you can upload your favorite songs to your own GMail and E-mail then simply access them from any computer in the world.
You will see the option to “Play” when you open your E-mail in GMail and Google will “pop” a free MP3 player.
I believe this also works on many other audio formats.
