*7digital has just added MP3 downloads to its Android app, as well as the ability to synch downloads with local and cloud-enabled collections.

*Nimbit is now offering public beta access to its upcoming NimbitFree.  Everything will be ready in a few days; sign up for access at

*Destiny Media Technologies has signed an agreement with All Access Today Japan to represent its PlayMPE and Clipstream services in Asia.

*Adele’s 21 is the top-selling album in the US again this week, with sales of 124,000 according to Nielsen Soundscan.  That was followed by Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, and Britney Spears in another soft week.

*And, Apple has now removed the Any Music Downloader app, which allowed users to surf-and-download MP3s across the net.  Any Music quickly became a top-ranked app.
