    All you people comparing it to Pandora don't get it: It's subscription music that plays SPECIFICALLY what you want ON DEMAND. Go take out your rage on commercial sat radio service if you want, which can only play a genre you want, but a Napster to Go or Napster streaming subscription is different. Ever hear of Zune Pass? That's what this is for compatible players. The iPhone and iPod are not thanks to Apple wanting to force iTunes on you, so that is the ONLY reason why the app streams. With other compatible players, you can sign up for Napster to Go and download LITERALLY millions of tracks for your monthly fee and play them OFFLINE on your compatible digital audio player. This app lets people who already have subscriptions access them on a device that will never support them directly and it does so by streaming. That is the only reason it streams so comparing it to Pandora is just stupid.

    Heck, you can even use it on any WMA player if you know how to break the DRM. I'm not saying you should because that's probably why Raphsody and Yahoo Unlimited quit doing Janus subscription-based services. Microsoft basically abandoned it once FairUse4WM arrived and moved on to a proprietary subscription service for Zune.

    Been waiting for this! NICE! My wife and I use Napster for unlimited music with the "To Go Option". Now we can download stuff straight to our iPhones! Hooray!!

    Hopefully we can listen to the downloaded music in the iPod.app instead of being limited to the napster player.

    I have a Napster subscription, so I downloaded this. It immediately wants me to upgrade my current subscription to a $96 annual one. I don't think so. Immediately deleted.

    Did you read the post right above you? Pandora isn't even remotely the same thing.

    I doubt it. Apple doesn't let other apps integrate in that way. It probably just streams as a way around not supporting Napster to Go.

    That doesn't sound right.

    You mean the least amazing, clunky, non user-freindly app ever made? OK.

    I'll just stick to pandora... If I wanna pay for an app that'll let me download or stream music I'd rather just pay a one time fee Of $9.99 for Mewseek and download all the music I want and with the option to send all my downloads to my library... Now doesn't that sound like a better way to spend $9.99

    So why pay napster $9.99 monthly for something then just loose it all after... That's throwing ur money away.

    I think it'll just fail, really. Pandora is the best.

    For everyone saying pandora is better. Pandora is not even close to the same thing as napster. Napster plays specific songs, pandora plays random songs in the same genre of the song you picked to start with. Honestly I hate pandora I always end up skipping half the song it picks that it thinks I want to listen to. I don't want to pay for napster I just think it's kind of stupid to say pandora is better than something hardly similar to it.
