It's Rhapsody for Apple iPad and Apple iPad mini users, while Android gets an updated version
Rhapsody, the digital music provider, has launched an app for the Apple iPad and the Apple iPad mini that takes advantage of the larger sized screen on the tablets. The free app gives users access to the Rhapsody library of 16 million tunes in over 600 genres. Playlists that are created on the slate can be listened to off-line, without an internet connection. The new app was built from scratch, just like your grandma's tollhouse cookies, and uses the Apple iPad's internal speakers or earphone jack. You can also use Airplay or Bluetooth to listen to your tunes on an external speaker.

"Our customers are going to be big fans of the latest tablet additions to Rhapsody's growing product suite. Rhapsody has never looked or sounded better. We built this app from the ground up optimizing for speed, reliability and an effortless discovery experience for our members."-Paul Springer, senior vice president of worldwide product and design, Rhapsody

The app, which is offered with no ads, lets you see member created playlists and every Tuesday new releases come out. And Rhapsody didn't forget you Android users either. A new Android app was recently made available from the Google Play Store that includes a feature called Replay. Replay figures out what you've been listening to all day, and comes up with song selections based on your listening pattern.

The new Apple iPad and Apple iPad mini Rhapsody app is available in the Apple App Store. If you're not a Rhapsody subscriber, you can try out the service for free during a 30 day trial.

I had Rhapsody, Liked it, but considering I have spotify and Slacker (premium subs on both) I couldn't justify keeping it.

The rhapsody app in Android has been wanting for a while now. Seeing the rhapsody interface in wp8 really brought home the point. About time they updated.
