iDisk user? You can now stream your music to your iPhone.

Well then…this is interesting. If you’re an iDisk user, there’s a little setting that you will want to check out. While iDisk obviously offers you the ability to have access to your files via your iPhone or iPod Touch, the latest update apparently has another option you’ll want to check:

“Play audio from your iDisk while using another app”

The option, buried deep into the “more” button features in the newest version of iDisk, is not exactly an iTunes in the Cloud replacement, but it certainly comes close. All you have to do is toss your music onto your iDisk and you can stream it wherever you are.

While 20 GB isn’t nearly enough for some users, it should cover a good part of others. It’s also a great option if you only have a few new things that you want to listen to, and change out your music often.
