Real Rhapsody for iPhone

Real this morning branched out to Apple devices in earnest by revealing a port of its Rhapsody service to the iPhone and iPod touch. Normally only offered through rival players like those from SanDisk, the service gives subscribers access to the full song catalog and lets them queue up any of the 8 million songs from Rhapsody on request. It also provides access to playlists, Rhapsody Radio and every other service normally available through the full-function website, Real claims.

The app is being submitted this week to the App Store and will launch pending approval. If accepted, full use will need a $15 per month subscription to Real's unlimited service, but anyone will have a free trial period. A version for Google's Android platform is enroute and should be accompanied by releases for platforms with smaller app stores.

    Some people were

    begging to have subscription music service on the iPhone and when it arrives, they'll all claim it's too expensive. WTF?
