Napster app launches on iPhone

Napster has launched an app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices to offer unlimited streaming of songs on the go.

By subscribing to a monthly subscription plan for about £6.50, users will be able to access Napster's 10 million-strong library, with the option of storing the last 100 tracks you played on the device for listening even when you’re on the Tube or anywhere where you can't get online.

The service aims to compete with the likes of Spotify and Rhapsody, which operate a similar subscription-based model on mobile platforms.

The app boasts a simple, easy to navigate interface with an ‘explore’ menu to discover music from Billboard charts dating back to 1955 and the most popular tracks from Napster’s own Top 100s. Users can also create their own playlists and search playlists created by others.

Napster is currently one of the biggest music streaming services in operation. It originally launched as a free music service but had to change its ways to stay in business as a legal music provider.

The app is available for download right now on iTunes.
