Chris' review: http://www.everythingicafe.com/best-streaming-music-app-iphone/2012/06/18/ is another example.

It's a great review, but why leave out Rhapsody? This seems to be a common theme among all music service reviews.

Rhapsody:
  • Has professionally programmed radio stations
  • Radio stations organized around artists (like Pandora but only one artist)
  • Professionally created playlists
  • Custom playlists
  • Ability to share playlists
It also arguably has the best music selection and certainly pays the artists more money per track than any of the other services.

Is it a pay service? Yes, but so was Spotify when this review was written.

Is it as good as the others? I don't know. I don't use the others. But why isn't it ever even considered?

Chris - This isn't meant to be a dis' on you. It's a very good review.

You know, I had Rhapsody on my device, but never included it. I just signed up and will update my article once I've had some time with it.
