Rhapsody has updated its iOS client, bringing the app to version 3.1. The update brings about a few new features and improvements, but more importantly it adds support for the new unRadio service—Rhapsody’s joint venture with T-Mobile announced last night.
Among the new features is a song identification tool called TrackMatch, which allows users to identify and tag songs that are currently playing with a single tap. Rhapsody has also added Live Radio, enabling users to listen to live radio stations from around the world…
Here are your 3.1 release notes:

For those who missed it, T-Mobile hosted an event in Seattle, Washington last night where it unveiled a new Test Drive program and two major music initiatives: Music Freedom, which allows users to stream music for free from select services, and this new unRadio service.
UnRadio will be free to those with T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Unlimited plan (which is $80 per month), and $4 for all other T-Mobile users. Outside of that, anyone can subscribe for $4.99 per month, and of course Rhapsody’s Premium service is still available for $10/month.
If you’re interested, you can grab Rhapsody from the App Store for both iPhone and iPad for free.
