Rhapsody app coming soon to an iPhone near you… Pending approval

Got an iPhone or an iPod touch? Got a Rhapsody ToGo subscription? Life is about to get a whole lot better for you… If Apple decides to approve Real’s new iPhone app, that is. That’s right folks, RealNetworks has submitted an app to the App Store that will allow ToGo subscribers to stream any and all music from Rhapsody’s enormous library via Wi-Fi, 3G or even EDGE. Considering the Rhapsody service is in direct competition with iTunes, logic might dictate that Apple will, umm, “pull an Apple” and find a way to reject the app. Rhapsody is doing its best to avoid rejection however, by limiting its iPhone offering to streaming only (no downloads/local storage). With about a million other music steaming apps in the App Store right now, it would be tough for Apple to warrant a rejection — especially with the FCC currently breathing down the company’s back. Hit the jump for a few more screenshots and a video of the Rhapsody app in action, and keep those fingers crossed.
