Sony’s Music Unlimited yet another challenger to music streaming service Spotify.It’s been around for a while on Android and PlayStation-branded devices, but the app recently made its way to the iPhone.

Still in its infancy, the app has a ways to go if it wants to steal users away from Spotify.

Music Unlimited isn’t as fully-featured as Spotify on the iPhone. For example, you can only stream music, not save it to your phone so you can listen offline. (Sony tells us that feature is coming later.)

But if streaming is all that matters to you, then Music Unlimited could be worth a look. (Just make sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi. Streaming a lot of music will eat up your data plan.)

Music Unlimited offers two plans:

The basic plan will set you back $3.99 per month and offers multiple device access, music discovery, international access, and social sharing.

The premium plan is $9.99 per month and offers more than the basic plan. Premium plan users can find and play any song (in Sony’s library) as often as you want from millions of tracks instantly. No limitations.

Premium users can also, browse top charts and new releases in addition to everything that a basic plan can get you. Check out the full details of the plans directly on Sony’s website.
