Default There no Rhapsody client for Storm?

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased the subscription for Rhapsody to Go but it looks like you can just add songs to your authorized device. Why isn't there a client similar to the PC you can get for your mobile device?

VCast with Rhapsody? It is available via Application Center.

My understanding is that VCast is not the same as Rhapsody.

Correct you do NOT need the vcast application on your phone to use the rhapsody togo product.

You DO need the vcast/rhapsody client on your computer to move songs to the storm. The rhapsody togo product does NOT offer OTA music downloads to your cell phone. You must tether to your PC and use the rhapsody PC client to get music to your storm. So far I am very pleased with the togo product. I am using my storm as a music player MUCH more than any other device.

It would be nice to have OTA however. Why isn't this service offered offhand?

i agree would be cool. not sure why they don't have OTA, probably a combination of DRM issue and cost/bandwidth?

I really don't find it difficult at all to manage my music using the PC rhapsody client. I just plug in my storm and update the music every week or two.
