    Napster Now Available for iOS Devices

    Napster, the service that once revolutionized the way we share music (and then went through a painful transformation from a free, copyright-be-damned music sharing app into a legal subscription service), is now available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    The service offers 10 million full-length songs for a subscription of $10 a month, and you can even listen to those songs offline – as long as you keep paying the monthly fee.

    Features include the ability to create playlists, save songs, albums and playlists to play even when your offline, save the last 100 songs you’ve played, and check out new releases, recommendations, and Billboard charts dating back to 1955.

    Interestingly enough, a year ago the folks from Napster said they’re not planning to release an app for iPhone or other mobile platforms very soon, due to “high licensing fees for streaming to a mobile phone.” The competitors, such as Rhapsody and Spotify, have overcome that obstacle, and it seems that Napster has found it necessary to do so, too.

    The iOS Napster app is available on iTunes.

    This is a biggie, One of the benefits of the Zune was the subscription model so this should bring back some users that switched.
