Napster App Comes to the iPhone

I remember it to be about 10 years ago when a few buddies and I used to be huddled over a PC with Napster open. Wasting hours for low quality pirated music never felt so cool.

9 to 5 Mac reports that  you can recapture some of the nostalgic vibe above by adding the Napster application to your iPhone. Once held as the top source for downloading music, Napster has watched its importance come and go since 1999 and is now gracing the virtual shelves of the App Store

You can get the app for free here however you’ll need a Napster plus Mobile Access subscription to use which runs you $10/month. Features include saving albums, songs and playlists for later listening while getting music recommendations from the service. Doesn’t sound very revolutionary coming from the company that literally turned how we get our music upside down.

There are no shortage of streaming music clients available now for your iPhone. Adding the original player in Napster should now give users more options than they need for this service. Give us your ideas on whether or not Apple should be using this moment to build their own music streaming service. Leave them in the comments below.
