Choosing a music streaming service is no mean feat right now, with Spotify, Deezer and even Apple Music among the offerings available to those who enjoy their tunes. The new Qus music app makes listening to your favorite songs as easy as possible by breaking down the barriers between streaming services.

Aggregating streaming services and throwing in a global search option is all well and good, but Qus goes a step further by adding a social listening experience that may be just enough to push it over the edge from fairly useful to magically musical.

With iOS 8, Apple is bringing a multitude of exciting new features to iPhone and iPad. In some cases, Cupertino is playing catch-up as it tries to match what’s currently available in KitKat; in others, Apple’s next-generation mobile operating system is about to blast past the latest version of Android.

Android and iOS will secure a staggering 95 percent of smartphone market share between them in 2014, according to the latest research from IDC. While it’s strictly a two-horse race, Google’s platform is currently far out in front when it comes to number of users, with Android’s market share expected to reach 80.2 percent by the end of the year.

Google has a new Android update up its sleeve that will be announced this summer, but while Apple posts impressive upgrade percentages, Android fragmentation typically slows deployment of Google’s latest, greatest mobile OS.
