Real Wants Rhapsody on Your iPhone

Real is working on bringing its Rhapsody subscription music service to Apple's iPhone. The company is planning on submitting its app to Apple for App Store approval this week, and if approved it will give iPhone and iPod touch users access to their Rhapsody music playlists along with Rhapsody Radio.

The app will let subscribers browse the complete Rhapsody music library, search for songs, and, or course, listen to music.

Whether or not Apple approves the application, however, remains to be seen. Apple has blocked applications in the past with claims that they duplicate features that are already available on the iPhone, and since the Rhapsody service could be seen as an iTunes Store competitor, the company could potentially make a similar claim here.

If Apple does approve the Rhapsody application, iPhone and iPod touch users will have yet another way to listen to music, and Real's subscription music service could potentially get a boost in subscriptions.

Yes, this may put Apple between a rock and a hard place considering it’s current state with the FCC.

Does it conflict (versus compete) with the core functionality of the device? Since Sirius/XM, Pandora, and others already have music apps, one would tend to believe that it would be approved if it isn’t technologically inferior and thus a POS.

And of course, if it is approved, will anybody actually use it? It’s not like Rhapsody is burning up the sales figures now, is it.
