Sony has released its Android client for the Qriocity-powered streaming service plus online syncing offering, dubbed Music Unlimited, back in June 2011. It appears that there are plans to bring the service to Apple’s iOS-powered devices.
Tim Schaaff, head of Sony Entertainment Network, announced that a free application for the iPhone and iPad are in the works and should land in the AppStore by the end of this quarter. The iPhone flavor will also offer offline caching for subscribers as well as the ability to save playlists for offline listening.
If the principle sounds familiar then you definitely met Spotify. According to Sony, the company’s major retail and international presence should help the offering, but the service is not aimed directly at competitors but rather at those users who are yet to select their streaming music provider.
