Rhapsody, the app that gives you unlimited high quality music for your Android device (for a monthly fee) has received an updated and given several new features that customers have asked for. Here’s what you can expect from the words of one of Rhapsody’s engineers:
The big feature that we’re announcing today is the release of the long-awaited ability to download individual albums and tracks. (Woot!) This is the number two feature request that we get from customers and we’re excited to finally hand it over to everyone.
But wait, you might say, that’s big and it’s number two?! What’s number one?
Glad you asked.
The number one requested feature is the ability for you to decide where you want your music downloaded to. There are a number of devices out there with both an internal, fixed SD card as well as a removable SD card. Boring technical details aside, the Rhapsody app was using the internal fixed SD card.
Today we are also happy to announce that along with the ability to download those albums and tracks, you advanced users will be able to decide where to put them! We looked at what we could do quickly as we wrapped up on the album and track download work to fulfill this request, so you may find it a little sparse, but we’ll work to make it more robust.
Being able to download music and being able to store them where ever you’d like is a wonderful addition to the app. If you haven’t tried this out yet, will these new features entice you? Let us know!
