mu iPhone global 5.2012As you may have heard, Sony Entertainment Network is currently rolling out its Music Unlimited application for iOS worldwide. As of late it wasn’t clear when the US version would come out, but we’ve got the official answer and Friday (May 25) is the US launch date in the app store.

With this app, millions of PlayStation Network users will be able to stream content from their iOS devices. The Android version (Google Play link) of this application has been out for some time, and has worked on Sony’s own XPERIA phones and Sony Android tablets.

The arrival of Music Unlimited on iOS adds another option for heavy users who would rather pay a subscription to access millions of songs, rather than buying songs here and there. This is typically two very different usage models. Yet, those who already have non-DRM tracks, it is possible to import them as well.

If you are not familiar with the service, Sony Music Unlimited can handle as many devices as you have -but- it is possible to only stream from one device at any given time. This is a much better policy than limiting the number of devices connected to the service in my opinion.
