Great news for everyone who listens to their music through the Music Unlimited service’s iPhone and iPod touch application – offline playback and high quality audio for streaming playback are included in the version 1.3 update that will go live very soon.
Similar to the Music Unlimited Android app, iOS users can now download individual albums and tracks, as well as any playlists they have created to their device and enjoy music even when a cellular or Wi-Fi connection isn’t available, or when they want to conserve battery life or curb data usage. Additionally, the version 1.3 update will offer the ability to listen to your music in crystal clear 320kbps AAC high fidelity audio while streaming.

Listening to music offline is simple:
Select a playlist, song or album that you’d like to download.

Once you select the music for download, hit the all new “Menu” button on the top left of the app and you’ll see the “My Downloads” queue to check the progress of your downloading tracks.
Once the tracks are finished downloading, you’ll immediately see the list of artists, albums, songs and playlists in the “My Downloads” tab. They are all available to hear while online or offline.
To listen offline, simply set the “Offline Mode” switch to “ON” and you’ll be taken immediately to your download list where you can select tracks by Artists, Albums, or Songs, or by Playlists.
