Rhapsody updated with TrackMatch and support for T-Mobile’s new unRadio service

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.

But don’t write Rhapsody off yet. Today, they’ve revamped their iOS app which they likened to “the Ferrari of iPhone apps”…

Rhapsody app finally lands on iPad

You have to hand it to Rhapsody. It hasn’t been an easy 11 years for the music streaming service, what with the failed acquisitions, and the rise of strong competitors like Spotify and Rdio. But the company refuses to give up.

And today, it has some good news for its subscribers. After months of waiting, Rhapsody has finally released a full-blown iPad app. It’s been built from the ground up with a gorgeous image-based UI, and has plenty of features…
