America's Top Premium Subscription Music Service Brings an Engaging Music Experience to Android Tablets, With a Focus on Premium, Original Editorial Content

SEATTLE, Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhapsody today announced the availability of its new application for Android tablets.  This latest product innovation from the most popular premium subscription music service in America makes it even easier for Rhapsody members to discover new music, read about their favorite artists and rediscover music with expert playlists, guides and features.

The tablet transforms Rhapsody into an immersive experience that's inspired by what digital music lovers miss about physical albums and CDs: album art, photos and the ability to reach out and touch the next album you're playing.  The tablet amplifies the experience with the best aspects of digital, with links across the universe of content that Rhapsody editors have produced over the past decade.

"We didn't just resize Rhapsody – we re-imagined the entire experience for the tablet," said Brendan Benzing, chief product officer, Rhapsody.  "The tablet is not a giant phone or a mini computer. It's your companion on the couch, in transit and out in the world, and therefore people experience music and consume content differently than they would on a computer, portable device, TV or home audio system."

Original editorial content has been a mainstay of the Rhapsody service since it launched in 2001. Each week, the editorial team--who are the leading writers in their respective genres--produces features, reviews, videos and playlists designed to guide members through Rhapsody's vast catalog of 14 million songs across nearly 600 musical genres.  The tablet application is built around this content, with lush imagery, playable links and franchises designed to guide members through the service.

The application maximizes the unique capabilities of the tablet.  Members can tap, swipe and zoom through Rhapsody content while listening.  In addition to streaming the Rhapsody catalog while connected to the Internet, tablet users can download playlists to their tablet and store them to enjoy offline anywhere.

"We are dedicated to creating a premium experience that consistently brings value to every aspect of the Rhapsody service," said Benzing. "The tablet app delivers on this promise by providing more than just access to music—it's a guided tour of millions of songs and a musical canvas for a myriad of experiences, from collaborating with friends to build a party playlist by passing the tablet around the room, to providing a soundtrack to a recipe or an e-book."

The tablet application is available today in the Android Market and the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Rhapsody applications are also available on the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, RIM BlackBerry, and Windows Phone 7 as well as through more than 70 consumer electronics devices, including those by Vizio, SanDisk, HP, Sonos and Philips.
