Seattle – Digital music
service Rhapsody announced on Monday that it has enabled offline music caching
for its iPhone application, becoming the first U.S. music service to allow the
downloading of subscription-licensed songs on the device. The new Rhapsody 2.0
application for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad — which costs $10 to $14.99 per
month — will let users download their Rhapsody playlists and listen to them
anywhere. The company added that its mobile application for BlackBerry will
launch this summer.
