Based on this report, we figured that it would be a good idea to anticipate which other iOS apps may eventually launch on Android as well. At the very least, we tried to figure out which Apple apps would be nice to have on Android from an end-user perspective.
Before we get this imagination game started, we'd like you to bear in mind that we don't have official confirmation that more Apple apps are heading to Android anytime soon.
5 Apple apps that would be nice to have on Android
While iPhone and iPad users can use iMessage to communicate through IMs or video calls, a third-party app becomes a necessity in order to reach out to Android users.
An Android port of iMessage would benefit iOS users first as it would largely eliminate the need for third-party IM apps. Furthermore, an Android compatible iMessage app would heavily benefit hybrid users - those who rock an iPhone and an Android tablet, or an Android phone and an iPad - by allowing them to sync their communications across their devices. However, this isn't to say that (at least some) Android users will not appreciate the reliability and security of iMessage.
While Google Play currently offers a wide collection of songs available for purchase, iTunes remains the first choice for many established artists, while independent artists often release their music exclusively on Apple's music distribution platform.
Unlike, iTunes and iMessage, however, iCloud wouldn't be as important for Android users. Google Drive is already well integrated into the OS, is very popular among users, not to mention that the storage-per-dollar ratios are much more affordable than what Apple is asking for iCloud storage.
4. Apple Maps
An Apple Maps port to Android not only makes sense but was actually hinted to by an Apple job posting a few good months ago. Like with iCloud, however, a potential Android version of Apple Maps would have to face a very potent (not to mention natively integrated) Google Maps competitor.
5. Music Memos
In essence, Music Memos is a great way to sketch song ideas using just your smartphone's microphone: it records music in an uncompressed format, will automatically recognize the pitch and visually represent the notes, and can also automagically add bass and drums on top of your song. The app is not as complex as some professional apps, but it's certainly a simple and useful way to jot down and share song ideas before heading to band practice or the studio.
Given that no Android app can currently match Music Memos, an Android port would probably strike a sensitive cord among musicians. It's clearly not a must-have app, though, and this is why we've mentioning this one last.
