Sony today launched an iOS app for its Music Unlimited streaming service, which had previously been available only to Android users. This will help open up the service to many new users to compete against similar music streaming platforms such as Spotify, MOG, and Rdio, all letting users stream music, customize playlists and more with a cheap monthly subscription.
Music Unlimited has been available on Android, Walkman PMPs, and PlayStation products as well as on Sony's home theater products. This new Music Unlimited iOS app is only available for the iPhone at this time, but an iPad-optimized version will likely be on its way.
The service offers a simple selection of two subscription plans. The basic plan is $3.99 per month and is limited to only a selection of channels that you customize by liking and disliking tracks. The premium plan is $9.99 per month and gives you instant on-demand playback of Sony's entire music catalog. It also offers offline listening, the ability to customize playlists, and access to premium channels.
