Rhapsody drops prices, expands to Android

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 06 Apr 2010 12:08

Rhapsody drops prices, expands to Android Rhapsody, which was recently spun-off from RealNetworks and is now an independent company, has announced two major events today, the lowering of their standard subscription, and the release of an Android app.
The company is dropping the price to $9.99 per month, allowing for unlimited music on your home computer and playback on one additional media device.

The app, released into the Android Market, should help to expand Rhapsody's userbase, just like the Rhapsody iPhone app did over the past year.

Says Jon Irwin, president of Rhapsody: "We've got a large fan base ... and we heard loud and clear -- they wanted a more affordable price, and they wanted greater portability. That's where we're headed with these two announcements."

The monthly subscription used to cost $12.99 per month.
