The MacUpdate lists are near overflowing with Google-this, Google-that, Chrome, Nextus Brinsky, GummyTeethPages...

Note to MacUpdate: How about starting a new site called 'Googleupdate" and move all things goole over there.

Google has a lot of services and APIs. People are making Mac apps for them. That's a good thing. ;)

@ Joel, that depends on your way of thinking. Personally (and from my Cold War intelligence experience) any firm that mines your personal and private data, then sells it to other firms, including domestic and foreign intelligence agencies, is not doing a good thing for common users. I know I'm shoveling sand against the tide here on the MU forum and I have no illusions that my occasional comment against Google will change anyone's mind, but hey, I try. I'm in my 80s and fortunately won't live to see the GUSA happen. (Google Unified Streets of America)

I don't see the point. One has to upload one's music collection in order to play it locally? Forget it, since I can grab whatever I want from device to device even directly over the internet without using yet another so-cloud.

And the app isn't that special, nor worth even the cheap price, since it doesn't do half of what other full media players (let alone real "managers") can do... for free.

It seems like you don't understand the point of Google Music, then (and thus, the purpose of the app). If you only play music locally you have no use for this.

I have 230GB of music (about 19,000 tracks). My MacBook Air has a 128GB SSD. See a problem?

With Google Music there is no problem -- all 230GB of music sits on their servers (yes, I had to upload it) and I have access to all of it on my MacBook Air with a Web browser (or lightweight app like this).

And I can go to a friend's house without any music in hand, login to play.google.com with my account on their Mac, and have access to all my tunes at their place.

As for not supporting 10.6, many apps are headed in that direction; it has to do with frameworks that are available only in 10.7 (and 10.8). I personally would prefer developers look forward and embrace new technologies than deliberately leave them out to accommodate old OS's, but that's just me.

On the OSX 10.6 complaint, you are right, there are a lot of Snow Leo users out there. I didn't want to hurt them (You) or anything, simply (as Misha kindly pointed out) it's more work (and thus time) to write an application that supports it.
But I am working on the next (v1.3) version, that will add support for Snow Leo. Your opinion counts.
As for whether there is point in using this application.. Well, I've written it because I myself needed it. Google Music/Play is a grand service, but I just can't stand being confined to a web browser. I understand that you don't care about clouds, but for others (like me for example) they are a very useful extension to personal computing.

I am glad to announce that the new version (1.3) is compatible with Snow Leopard! Enjoy!

I suppose 32 bit OSX 10.6 is out of the question? ;)

Redmelons: I am sorry I was sure I've already answered that... Yes 32-bit version seems unlikely in the near future due to the deficiencies in the 32-bit runtime, as opposed to the 64-bit (so called 'Modern') one. Sorry!

I'm big fan of Google Music, it's free and plays on any device.

This app plays my google music much better like in a web browser, i love it.
