in iPhone edited January 2014
Real Networks announced this week it would submit its Rhapsody player iPhone application to Apple. The software would allow subscribers to the service access a library of on-demand streaming music.

"We know not everyone who uses an iPhone is a Rhapsody subscriber, but we think the app will appeal to anyone who has an affinity for music," the company's blog states. "Subscribers can just log in to the app with their existing user name and password and the experience will be seamless. Non-subscribers will have the opportunity to try the app for a limited time free-trial period."

The blog also acknowledges that it could be used to bypass buying songs from Apple's iTunes. The capabilities of the product have led to speculation as to whether Apple will approve the application. Said the Real Networks blog: "Hopefully, very soon."
