Rhapsody, The Best $9 Bucks I Ever Spent

Rhapsody, The Best $9 Bucks I Ever Spent

When I think of playing music on my Android phone, I usually head on over to my Pandora app, until recently. I came across the beta version of Rhapsody’s Android app and instantly fell in love. Instead of Pandora dictating what songs I get to listen to, I have full control of what music makes its way to my ears.

Usually I tend to shy away from paying for monthly subscriptions, except when it comes to my subscription to Cosmopolitan and Maximum PC (yes, I am a nerd). However, after fooling around with the app, I decided that this particular subscription was worthy of my wallet.

Download Rhapsody for Android

Scan to download!

Rhapsody via my Android phone is simply amazing. The application itself has a clean look and feel and is very simple to operate for even the most novice user, including my mother (a recent Android convert). For those who want to follow along, go download Rhapsody’s beta version from the Android Market by searching “Rhapsody” or scanning the bar code on your left. If you are initially hesitant about purchasing the monthly subscription, sign up for the free 7 day trial from the first screen within the application.

Searching for a specific song, album, or artist is simple with Rhapsody. The application has a search feature that lets you find music via those three criteria. If you are having a hard time coming up with songs to listen to, Rhapsody gives you full access to Top 25 information for just about any genre of music.  This includes albums, artists, and tracks.

Looking for the latest and greatest tunes? Rhapsody comes equipped with a “New this Week” feature that provides you with the newest editions to their music catalog (which is already stacked with 8 million + songs). If you really want to test the waters, you can even listen to Rhapsody staff picks and come across artists and music you may have never heard before.

The best part of using this subscription is that you also have access to the Rhapsody catalog via your home computer. Sign in from anywhere and listen to your favorite songs, or if you’re like me, create your playlists from your computer – and then listen to them on you Android phone when you head out for a run.

If you are looking for an alternative to Pandora, I highly recommend giving this application a try.  It was definitely the best $9 I’ve ever spent.

    If it was on the "Best $9 you have ever spent" and not the Best $9 dollars you will spend each month…I'd be all over it. But, alas, it is not.

    God forbid we actually pay to consume something that somebody worked hard to create. I love free as much as the next person, but at some point, consumption will eventually turn us into an actual consumer. I love Rhapsody as well, and think it is much better than Pandora or Slacker. I get to choose the music I want to listen to. Not some random playlist I may or may not like. And if I do feel daring, I can do the playlist thing as they do have them available. After all is said and done, Android is about choice. My choice.
