How are you supposed to use Google Music on and iPhone? I uploaded a lot of my music to Google Music but I want to have offline access to them on my iPhone.

Even an Android phone doesn't have offline access to music stored in Google Music, does it? – Jason Salaz Jan 4 '12 at 18:10
You can have offline access on Android – Anders Jan 4 '12 at 18:18
Just out of curiosity, how does it work? How does it know what it should and shouldn't cache locally for offline access? – Jason Salaz Jan 4 '12 at 19:32

Google do not provide offline access for google music on the iPhone.

However just searching "Google music" on the App Store, shows 2 (paid) applications, that seem to offer offline access.

Offline access won't be possible until Google either releases an iOS music app or a Google Music API. Both are very unlikely.

Have a look at iTunes Match though.
