With AudialsMobile you can tap into MP3s from thousands of artists via the latest social radio stations. You can download these directly onto your mobile phone with AudialsRadio, where you can store them for playing on the device, or transfer them to your PC afterwards.

Using AudialsMobile is a straightforward affair. Once you've installed and run the application you'll be given the option to search for an artist or to browse them all by genre. Both options are dead simple: to search you just enter the name of the performer and you'll be returned a list of possible matches as you type. Browsing by genre in AudialsMobile lets you pick a category (e.g. Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, Dance), followed by a further sub-category to browse all the artists listed under that genre. Click on the name of the artist and you'll get a list of all the tracks by them available via the social radio networks AudialsRadio supports. Downloading a track with AudialsMobile is as simple as selecting it and hitting the 'Download' button.

The free AudialsMobile application gives you free access to two different tracks per day, while upgrading presents you with unlimited access to the thousands of tunes available through the service. Be warned though that if you don't have a flat rate data plan (unless you use WiFi) AudialsMobile could end up being pretty costly.

AudialsMobile now comes with support for search and record plug-ins, which are designed to speed up the process of looking for and downloading by utilizing add-ons from services such as eSnips and GaragBand.

AudialsMobile has to be admired for the sheer range of artists it gives you access to (more than 70,000 at present), though you won't necessarily find the exactly song you were looking for from a particular performer. Hopefully, in the future these networks will have a healthy back catalog of tracks for most artists.

On the whole, AudialsMobile provides a simple and cost-effective way of downloading music onto your mobile phone.
