BlackBerry takes a step forward in modern relevancy today with the launch of Rhapsody's Blackberry app. The online music streaming service has delivered an app for subscribers that allows them to playback music, even if the phone is not connected to the internet. Right now, The Rhapsody BlackBerry app only works on a WiFi or 3G network, but you can download as many tracks as you want to listen offline.
This will be good for anyone with spotty phone coverage, airplane travel, or a trip to remote areas like Summer camping. The Rhapsody app offers a "download" button that allows you to download any track in a playlist for listening when you're offline.
Rhapsody features over 10.5 million songs, customized playlists and over 200 genre-based custom radio stations created by Rhapsody’s editors. Subscriptions are $10 a month and you can try it free for seven days. Try before you buy!
"We are committed to bringing the Rhapsody experience anywhere our subscribers wish to enjoy digital entertainment, be it the mobile device, MP3 player, home audio system or television. Paramount to this is creating an optimal experience that is tailored for each specific device, exemplified by the BlackBerry app," said Brendan Benzing, Rhapsody chief product officer when submitting his standard issue PR release-templated product favorable quote.
