Gorgeous app gives you a little more for your $10 a month
Music streaming service Rhapsody has enhanced its mobile offering with a brand new application for tablets running Android.
The reimagined app for Android tablets running the Ice Cream Sandwich or Honeycomb operating systems offers a gorgeous magazine-style user interface.
The new Rhapsody app brings album art and imagery to the fore compared with the text heavy approach of the smartphone version.
Rhapsody for Android tablets is also built around the editorial content the company is so proud of, bringing you the latest news, reviews and features all with playable links.
Reach out and touch
The app also brings the ability to swipe through music libraries while listening, and also allows for offline playlists to be downloaded.
"The tablet transforms Rhapsody into an immersive experience that's inspired by what digital music lovers miss about physical albums and CDs: album art, photos and the ability to reach out and touch the next album you're playing," said the company in a media release on Friday.
"The tablet amplifies the experience with the best aspects of digital, with links across the universe of content that Rhapsody editors have produced over the past decade."
The app, which requires a screen of nine inches or more in size, brings access to Rhapsody's 14 million-strong song library for premium members who pay $10 a month for the service.
The company already has apps for iPhone, Android smartphones and BlackBerry devices, but this is the first tablet-centric application launched by the US streaming giant.
