Rhapsody is for those who live for music. It is a music subscription service that will let you listen to all the music you want at one low monthly subscription fee. The latest from Rhapsody is a brand new 2.0 version that features offline music downloading and listening. The company introduced this feature in March.
What can you do with Rhapsody?
Those iPhone owners who have Rhapsody on their device can create a playlist of any artist, albums and tracks from the catalog provided by the subscription service. After having that playlist, the user can download all tracks for offline listening. They can choose from over 9 million songs that are available. With a $10 per month Rhapsody subscription, users can download all of their favorite songs. This means that you can create your favorite playlist that will always be near, when walking, commuting or flying. Another bonus to the offline listening is that it saves your battery life compared to streaming.
One temporary downside is that you can’t stream or play music in the background while you are using another application. However, with the release of the iPhone OS 4.0 multitasking with Rhapsody music will be back in the forefront. Rhapsody will become one of the most used music listening services available.
Rhapsody 2.0 is free and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
