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 a companion app to sell concert tickets earlier this month, following an earlier app, Songmatch, a Shazam-like offering that plugs tunes into playlists.

The Windows 8 app brings Rhapsody's attention back around to desktops and laptops, though tablets running the operating system keep the company's hand in the mobile game with the latest app as well.
