Sony today released an iPhone and iPod touch app for its Music Unlimited cloud-based music service, which was previously only accessible from Android devices, computers and certain Sony products.
The new Music Unlimited app from Sony Network Entertainment enables users to listen to millions of songs, playlists and channels, add songs to playlists and uncover related artists.
“With the proliferation of connected devices, consumers expect complete access to their digital entertainment and demand a consistent experience regardless of the device,” Sony Network Entertainment International President Tim Schaaff said.
“Bringing the Music Unlimited service to iPhone and iPod touch is one of the many ways we are able to reach more music lovers around the world while ensuring the same level of high-quality entertainment that is associated with the overall Sony Entertainment Network experience.”
Similar to the Spotify service app launched yesterday in Australia, Music Unlimited has over 15 million songs for users to listen to and offers a range of subscription options.
Unlike Spotify, Music Unlimited does not have a free option, with the Basic subscription priced at $4.99 per month and the Premium service at $12.99 per month.
Both services offer social sharing, music sync, international access and the use of multiple devices, while the Premium option also allows users to create playlists, organise a music library and search new releases – and comes with a free trial.
