Myspace announced today that it is bringing its recently redesigned service out of beta, as well as launching a new mobile app for iOS.

If you haven't checked out the desktop redesign yet, you can see Josh Wolford's extensive walkthrough here.

"The magic of Myspace has always been at the intersection of creative expression, community, promotion, and discovery," said Myspace CEO Tim Vanderhook. "Myspace aims to power a new ecosystem catering directly to the creative community, enabling artists to manage their digital presence, build an audience, upload and distribute their content, and learn from data all on a single platform."

A new feature has been added as the result of feedback the company received during the beta period. That's a tool that lets users create and share animated GIFs "as simply and intuitively" as if they were taking and posting pictures.

The mobile app has a "My Radio" feature that lets you create and program your own radio stations, with unlimited free streaming.

If you don't use iOS, and you still want to experience Myspace on your mobile device, there's also a mobile-optimized version of the site.
