Napster has launched an application for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The self-titled Napster program allows users to listen to the service's 10 million tracks as often as they'd like. The app includes access to new songs, the top tracks on the Billboard charts, as well as older records dating as far back as 1955. Users can opt to save songs, create playlists, and go back and listen to albums from their iOS-based device. The app also includes an automix feature for users who want to hear artists similar to some of their favorites.
Napster's journey to the Apple App Store is one for the ages. Originally a place where users could download music at no cost, the service has barely hung on through the years as the music industry sunk its teeth into it. But survive it did. And in 2008, Best Buy acquired Napster for $121 million.
Napster's app is free to download, but in order to access the program's content, users will need to pay $10 per month. Subscribers can also listen to Napster on their browsers at no additional cost.
