Rhapsody music streaming app undergoes redesign 

Because there’s an increasingly competitive music streaming market, apps have to either reinvent themselves (if they’ve already been in the market for so long) or to constantly add new features in order to keep up with everyone else.

Opera Max update: design changes, more control over app management

Even the most practical of apps need a design makeover every once in a while.

And all these changes come from user feedback or most requested features from users.
