Subscription music service Rhapsody has launched its new application for Android tablets. The app will enable Rhapsody members to listen to new music, read about artists and access expert playlists, guides and other features on their Android device. With this product Rhapsody claims to have not just "resized" but also "re-imagined the entire experience for the tablet."
Launched in 2001, Rhapsody has built its reputation around the content it provides. Each week, the service releases latest features, videos, reviews and playlists, aimed at guiding members through its extensive catalog that claims to hold "14 million songs across nearly 600 musical genres". Now, that's a lot of music. The focus stays on the content in the latest app too. However, to improve the experience for tablet users, the app throws in playable links, lush imagery and franchises... basically making things visually appealing as well.
Optimized for tablet users, the app allows members to tap, swipe and zoom through the content while they listen to their favorite music. If you have access to the Internet, you will also be able to stream the Rhapsody catalog and download playlists to your tablet and enjoy the music offline.
The app is available in the Android Market and the Amazon Appstore for Android.
