Since the Rhapsody streaming music service broke away from RealNetworks, Inc. (the creators of RealAudio), and became a standalone company, it's been working hard to close the gap on its cloud music competitors -- such as Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, and others who also offer apps for smartphones.
If you use the Rhapsody app on the Android, then according to an article on the company's blog, it just got a whole lot better for listening to digital music.
With the latest release, you can now cache individual songs or complete albums on your phone's storage for times when your phone's network signal goes down or you don't want to eat into your data usage. Previously, you would have had to create a playlist in order to listen offline -- this new feature aims to make it easier to listen to Rhapsody's 16 million+ song library. Another significant update is you can now decide where on your Android phone you want the music stored -- either on its internal memory or external storage card.
The new Rhapsody Android App is now available on the Google Play app store.
