Beats Music made a nice splash into the streaming music service pool earlier this year with distinctive features and great recommendation functions, but the iOS version was previously limited to iPhone for its first few months of existence. Luckily, that changed today as the Dr. Dre-backed app became fully universal, delivering full-screen iPad functionality in the process.
“Beats Music was designed as a mobile-first app, as most music listening takes place on mobile phones today. But it’s not a mobile-only app, as our integration with Sonos, and now the iPad app, shows,” reads the official blog post on the release. “We believe music should be part of every aspect of life, and that means making music available in all places and in all forms fans desire.”
Like the iPhone version, Beats Music for iPad features the very cool “The Sentence” feature, which lets you input a handful of variables about where you are and what you’re doing, and get a targeted track to listen to. New users can start a seven-day trial on the iPad version, otherwise the subscription service is priced at $9.99 a month for the standard plan.
We reviewed the iPhone version back in January and awarded it a 4.0 (Great), saying it “effectively balances music discovery while giving listeners with more rigid tastes full control, all in a stylishly designed UI that encourages you to poke around and have fun.”
