Napster Debuts in App Store

Napster, the paid music service now owned by Best Buy that started out as a free peer-to-peer file sharing service in the late ’90s, now has its own iPhone app. Napster debuted in the App Store late last night and offers access to over 10 million songs for a monthly fee of $10.

The app also offers good flexibility for offline listening plus several other features:

  • Save songs, albums, and playlists to play even when you’re offline
  • Kick back with playlists, recommendations, and Billboard® charts dating back to 1955
  • Create your own playlists for a customized listening experience
  • Save your last 100 songs played so you can easily replay favorites
  • Automix your favorite song to create an instant playlist blending similar artists

New customers can try the service out for free for seven days and get a 20% discount off of the annual subscription plan. Unfortunately, users must select a paid service plan and enter credit card information to even start the 7-day free trial.
