Rhapsody is rolling out an all new iPhone app today following some big updates to competitive music services earlier this week including Pandora and Rdio. Rhapsody is calling this app update “a completely new experience” for iOS and broke down on its blog a ton of changes its made to the UI on top of adding new features like customizable organization for your library, the ability to download for offline playback, improved album and artist pages, and a new full-screen player.

· Upgraded Album and Artist pages: Read a review of an album, shuffle tracks from an artist, and much more
· Full-screen player: Showcase gorgeous artist and album imagery that takes advantage of iPhone’s full screen real estate
