Rhapsody opens Windows 8 app
The Web's first music subscription service turns its gaze back on PCs after recent attention to mobile listening.
Rhapsody's app conveyor belt has served up another, but this time it's for PCs.
A forebear in Web subscription music services, Rhapsody released an app for Windows 8 at Microsoft's Build Developer Conference on Thursday. Available now from the Windows Store, it has deep search integration, snap mode for multitasking, and pinning for quick access to music.
Apps have been the Rhapsody pursuit of choice lately, a result of its focus on mobile listening. In addition to its namesake one for the four big mobile operating systems, it launched aearlier this month, following an earlier app, Songmatch, a Shazam-like offering that plugs tunes into playlists.
