Qriocity application arrives for Android devices

Cloud-based tune streaming Music Unlimited application now available on Google OS-powered smartphones, tablets.

Just last week Sony brought its Qriocity video and music streaming service back online, following more than a month of downtime stemming from the PlayStation Network outage. Today, Sony has announced where it plans to take Qriocity next: Android devices.
Users can take Music Unlimited on the road with the new app.

Available today in the Android marketplace is a Music Unlimited application powered by Sony's Qriocity. The application is free and lets users stream more than 7 million songs from all four major labels to their mobile devices.

While the application is free, gamers wishing to actually listen to music will need to sign up for a Music Unlimited plan. A basic $3.99/month subscription lets users listen to predetermined playlists, a la Pandora. A premium plan costs $9.99/month and lets users play any song they wish on demand, in addition to offering a range of other exclusive features.

So it's free........ but in order to use the program you have to actually pay for it? What part of that actually makes sense? "Oh hey, I'm just going to download this waste of space on my phone and not bother with the subscription so that I won't actually be able to use said waste of space." Are they sure this came from Sony and not Bobby Kotick from Activision?

Damn, I thought it would be an application where you could store your songs on a cloud and listen to them anywhere (different from the streaming service this application has). On a side note: Doesn't the font that Solid*Ty use (and some others) make it seem like they're shouting....or saying "derpity derp, derpity derpity derp" lol I hate that font.

What a garbage app! Tunein radio is free and has thousand of AM/FM/HDFM and digital underground commercial free radio. Then Pandora and Last.fm for your "playlist" music common Sony throw us a bone before Lulz Hacks you again!

Addendum: *some* Android devices. I can personally verify that neither the Xoom nor the Droid Charge support the app.
