Beats Music Expands to iPad With New Update




Streaming music app Beats Music for iOS was today updated to version 2.0.0, adding compatibility with the iPad. The app, first released in January, was previously limited to the iPhone.

The new iPad app includes an interface that has been designed specifically for the tablet's larger screen, incorporating features like Just for You, the Sentence, Find It, My Library, and Offline Mode. Support is included for both landscape and portrait modes.

Along with iPad support, the app has also gained "Find Your Friends," a feature that allows users to find and follow their Twitter friends on Beats Music.

What's New in Version 2.0.0
You asked for it, and we listened! Introducing Beats Music for iPad:

and much, much more!
Beats' streaming music service has a heavy focus on curation to distinguish it from competitors like Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and iTunes Radio. The company hires music experts to curate stations and create playlists from the service's music catalog of 20 million songs.

Beats Music can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but accessing requires a $9.99 per month subscription. Unlimited streaming and unlimited downloads are included in the purchase price. [Direct Link]

$10 a month for unlimited access to all music ever made? Are you crazy? That sounds like the deal of a lifetime.

Or $15 a month for up to 5 lines if you are an AT&T subscriber. Killer deal.

Spotify and Rdio charge the same amount for a regular account (yes, I know there are different rates for students on Spotify or the new Framily plan - but I'm just talking about a regular 1 user account).
