APP WATCH: Sony Music Unlimited rolls out to iOS devices

Much later than originally anticipated, Sony Music Unlimited is finally rolling out to iOS devices.

The service launched last year for Android devices, with Sony talking about a launch for Apple's iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in the first quarter of 2012. Obviously that came and went and we genuinely feared the worst for an iOS launch, especially with other music services launching and thriving. But today that seems to have changed.

The app has started rolling out, with New Zealand the first place to get the service. It's unlikely to be the last, so check the App Store if you want it – the Sony Music Unlimited service is available in the UK, so the app is likely to follow in the coming days.

The Sony Music Unlimited app is apparently optimised for the iPhone and iPod touch (although it can be used with the iPad too) and comes with a free 30-day trial. If that appeals, you can then sign up for £3.99 per month, which gives access to basic 'mood' channels and your own music (via music matching) on the go, along with music recommendations from Sony.

Pay £10 and you get on-demand music and offline listening. Yes, just like Spotify, which is where the competition will inevitably come from. There's also the option to create playlists and listen to new releases with the Premium option too.

If that appeals, it should be here in a matter of days – possibly even hours.
