mSpot bumps free storage to 5GB amid competition from Amazon

Company offers cloud music service

Cloud entertainment company mSpot has announced that its free storage option has been increased to 5GB. The change appears to be directly related to Amazon's introduction of a competing service, Cloud Drive, that offers a 5GB storage locker for a user's music collection, along with a player interface for remote streaming.

Both options allow users to upload their music collection to the cloud, while Cloud Drive is integrated with the Amazon MP3 store and utilizes a web-based player that can be accessed from computers or mobile browsers. The mSpot system is geared more for the iTunes ecosystem, with native apps available for Android and iOS devices.

Aside from mSpot's free 5GB option, the company allows users to upgrade to 40GB of storage for $4/month. Amazon also offers 5GB for free, while purchasing any album from Amazon MP3 brings an automatic upgrade to 20GB for the first year from the sale. The same amount of storage otherwise costs $20 per year, while additional capacities can be purchased for $1 per year for each additional gigabyte.
