Rhapsody's Android app lets you listen to music streamed from Rhapsody's huge online library on your phone or tablet. The app is free, but you'll need a Rhapsody subscription to listen to songs for more than 30 seconds. A pioneer of online music, Rhapsody has responded to growing competition with high-quality mobile streaming and multiple subscription options.
Large library: Rhapsody was one of the first music streaming services and has tens of millions of songs covering many different genres in its library.
High-quality streaming: A slider in the Settings changes the app's bit rate from Low (64kbps) to High (320kbps) for high-quality (but resource-hungry) playback (when available).
Infinite skips & no ads: The subscription-based service means no ads, and you can skip over any tune you don't want to hear.
Three-tier pricing: Rhapsody offers three subscription options that are generally competitive with similar services. T-Mobile customers can get discount rates.
PIN pain: Registering or verifying an account via the Android app is more frustrating than it should be. Signing up through the Web portal and Facebook worked much better.
No free radio: You can listen to 30-second clips for free, but a subscription is required to play full songs.
We liked the sound of the tunes Rhapsody streamed to our headphones, but other music-streaming services beat in user experience. If you already use Rhapsody, the Android app is best for mobile use. But try before you subscribe: Musical tastes and other factors could tip your decision one way or another.
THIS IS THE KILLER MUSIC APP. Listen to ALL THE MUSIC YOU WANT on your Android for one low monthly price. And even better, right now NEW CUSTOMERS CAN TRY IT FREE! If you're already a member of Americas #1 online music subscription service, just install the application and start listening.
