At GDGT, New York, RealNetworks is offering a sneak preview of its new Rhapsody music app for Android devices, a move just three weeks after the company won approval for its iPhone application. The iPhone app is free to install, but requires a $14.99-a-month subscription to Rhapsody To Go. Bill Hankes said the app is off to a “good start” with 200,000 downloads in the first 20 days. Many of those, he admits, are existing Rhapsody subscribers and people who’re taking advantage of a seven-day free trial. As to the Android app, Real said they’ll be showing off Rhapsody on the MyTouch and G1 phones. Hankes said it’ll work on new HTC Hero and other Android devices as well. Hankes said there’re no new features in the Rhapsody app for Android, though the user interface is quite different.
