After months of waiting, Apple has finally approved the Napster music application for iOS and it’s available to download from the App Store today.
Napster’s app is free to download to your device, but to gain access to the music, you’ll need to sign up to their ‘Napster Plus Mobile Access Plan,’ which is $10 per month. There is a free trial if you’re a new customer, so if you’ve never used Napster before, you can give the service a go before you commit.
As well as streaming music to your device wirelessly, the app also allows you to save songs, albums, and playlists to listen to while you’re offline. The app will also recommend music to you and give you access to the Billboard charts dating all the way back to 1955!
Another great feature is ‘Automix,’ which will create a playlist from your favorite song blending similar artists – much like iTunes’ Genius feature.
If you’re a Napster subscriber and you’ve been playing with their new iOS app, please let us know what you think about it in the comments.
