Real’s finally extending the Rhapsody music service to the iPhone and intend to submit their new app to Apple for approval this week. However, unlike other Rhapsody to Go mobile devices, gdgt reports local storage ain’t in the cards. Meaning we won’t be listening to any of Rhapsody’s 8 million song library on a plane.
Unlike a (free to inexpensive) Slacker or Pandora, Rhapsody essentially lets you stream any artist, song, album in addition to custom playlists. At $15/mo, I’m not sure they’ll pick up many new customers. But iPhone owners who enjoy Rhapsody on multiple platforms, like Sonos and TiVo, will likely welcome this app (despite its $3/mo mobile surcharge, similar to Sirius XM) to the fold.
