Sony's Music Unlimited service is poised to invade Apple's line of smartphones and tablets this Friday, May 25, with the release of the Music Unlimited iOS app. The app will push Sony's upstart mobile music offering to millions of new compatible devices, and offer iPhone and iPad owners another iTunes alternative.
Up until now, Music Unlimited has been available to Sony-branded devices like the PS Vita, PlayStation 3, Bravia TVs, as well as various Android handsets. Adding Apple's über-popular devices to the list of supported gadgets is a crucial move, especially given that iTunes is really the primary competition in the mobile music arena.
The app itself will be free, but a Music Unlimited subscription plan is required. Sony offers two versions of Music Unlimited: $3.99 per month gets you unlimited streaming music on several pre-created channels based on genre, as well as the ability to import your own music tracks. The $9.99 per month plan nets you on-demand play of any song in the Music Unlimited library, the ability to create your own cached playlists that can be enjoyed even without an internet connection, and a personal library to store as many songs from the network as you want.
If you're not quite ready to jump into Sony's music pool just yet, you can take advantage of the current trial program that lets you test drive the premium service or 30 days at no cost.
