A cool feature of this app is you can create playlists from the Rhapsody website and once downloaded to your phone, if you find yourself in an area with no service or connectivity—no problem—your playlist will still come through in clear, quality sound. Think saving battery life here instead of the battery-hungry streaming options. The app can hold up to one million song titles.
Along with creating your own playlists, you can browse music by genre or check the charts to see what’s hot and perform unique searches for artists you love. Your subscription to the Rhapsody online service also allows you to listen to Rhapsody Radio through this app—radio streams do require Internet connectivity.

The final entry in our HTC Droid Incredible music apps round up is Pandora Radio. This app is free and is now in version 1.5.5 with a file size of 1.4M (OS 1.5 or higher). This is a free app that only works if you are a free registered customer of Pandora Music. If you are a registered user of Pandora Music you already know you can create playlists via song genre, title or artist and the app allows you to connect with your account to stream music on your Droid.
Although this is a great free app and Pandora Music is free to join, you’ll only get a song or two from a favorite artist’s album. On the Pandora website you can “buy" the album via your iTunes account or Amazon as an MPD or get the CD.
If you like music from classical to jazz to hip-hop, it’s a great way to build a streaming song collection, but If you want the entire album, you’ll have to pay for that.
