Android phones get Rhapsody streaming service

Rhapsody, which allows users to stream music to their smartphones, now has its first official Android app.

The developer behind the app says that it is currently working on another version of the streaming service for the BlackBerry platform and hopes to bring the app to Research in Motion (RIM) smartphones before the end of 2010.

Rhapsody is far from the only music streaming service out there and there is plenty of competition from platforms such as Napster and Pandora.

However, Rhapsody differs from its rivals because it allows users to search for specific tunes playing on thousands of internet radio stations.

Even so, Rhapsody has not had the best of news of late, with its customer base shrinking by over 100,000 in recent months after it peaked at 800,000.

This prompted its owners to confirm that from hereon in the service will be sold at a lower price in order to stem the mini exodus.

Smartphone users and Android customers in particular, may not be entirely accustomed to paying for their music streaming apps, but Rhapsody is selling itself on its unique features and it could yet find success.
