Rhapsody app updated with ability to download tracks, albums

Popular music service Rhapsody just released an update to its Android app in the Google Play Store, version 3.0.1, bringing the ability for subscribers to download individual tracks or complete albums. This is a welcome addition for the data conscious among us, letting users download some choice tracks before leaving the house and not relying on streaming 100% of the time. Especially if you find yourself re-listening to the same few albums, it really makes sense to download those locally. Additionally, the app lets you choose where you'd like to put those downloaded songs, whether on internal storage on an SDcard if you're short on space.

The Rhapsody app can be found at the link above in the Google Play Store.

  • It always did that. I've had downloaded songs on my gs3, note, and ipad since the beginning of the year.
  • I believe the choice of destination was the real purpose of the update.
  • yes you could always download them, but that was after you created a playlist. Now you can just download the album or song without the playlist. This update makes it easier to use the rhapsody as your primary music app.
  • This article makes it sound like offline listening is new in Rhapsody. It is not. The change here, besides useability and performance improvements, is you can download an album or tracks directly. Previously you could only download playlists, so to grab an album you'd have to make a playlist out of it and then download that.
  • Anyone know if Rhapsody has gotten any better service-wise? I used to use them and then went to Napster because the app could hardly ever manage to stream a whole song before skipping randomly. Then, they bought Napster, which was a great app and I went to Slacker which has an app that's pretty much broken. So, I'm trying to find a new service.
