Rhapsody Brings Subscription Music to the iPhone
Rhapsody is the first U.S. service to enable people to download subscription music to the iPhone. By downloading playlists directly to their device, fans can enjoy Rhapsody anywhere: on the subway, on an airplane, even on a submarine.
"Today marks a turning point for Rhapsody and subscription music," said Jon Irwin, Rhapsody's president. "By making Rhapsody accessible anywhere people want to hear music -- and not just the places where they have an Internet connection -- we're giving music lovers a new way to discover and enjoy music on the devices they love."
Version 2.0 of Rhapsody for iPhone is now available in the U.S. for free from the Apple App Store. It is a new version of the iPhone app that Rhapsody first launched last September.
Using Rhapsody for iPhone, subscribers can stream (and now download) music from Rhapsody's catalog of over 9 million songs, listen to Internet radio stations, create new playlists on the go, or access the playlists they have already created through Rhapsody. The app also makes it easy for people to buy songs from the iTunes Store. In the coming months, Rhapsody will add the ability to download individual songs and albums (in addition to playlists) as part of an update to the Rhapsody for iPhone app.
