Beats Music releases specially optimized iPad app

Streaming music app Beats Music for iOS was today updated to version 2.0.0, adding compatibility with the iPad. The app, first released in January, was previously limited to the iPhone. The new iPad app includes an interface that has been designed specifically for the tablet’s larger screen, incorporating features like Just for You, the Sentence, Find It, My Library, and Offline Mode. Support is included for both landscape and portrait modes. 

It’s been a little over 100 days since Beats Music hit the ground running with its on-demand music streaming service, and today iPad owners are finally getting a version of the app designed specifically for tablet-sized screens. Beats Music 2.0 hit Apple’s App Store earlier today, offering landscape mode, the ability to find your Twitter friends and more. The biggest change is a redesigned UI specifically meant to take advantage of the iPad’s bigger screen. Photos are larger in portrait mode, and in landscape mode you’ll see even more options laid out when you scroll through the app’s “Just For You” home screen. Beats Music 2.0 for iOS also adds the ability to manage your account, set in-app subscriptions through your iTunes account, and track down and follow your Twitter friends who use the music streaming service.
