Google Music launches on iOS as a beta web app
Google Music Beta seems like the most logical thing to have on Android - after all it allows you uploading some 20,000 tracks to the Google cloud and use them from almost any device, and almost was partly constituted by the hoard of iOS device users, which have been missing an app. 

Google Music launches on iOS as a beta web app
To answer their needs, Google has now come up with a web app for iOS devices, so you can start using the service on your iPhone right away, but don’t get your hopes too high - it’s nowhere near as functional as a native app would be. Sure, it does the job - playing music from the Google cloud, but it often happens with a lag, even when you’re on a Wi-Fi network.

The interface itself is also pretty basic. Sadly, you can’t cache or download files, so you’d only be able to use the service online. It definitely feels a bit raw, but currently that’s the way to use Google Music on an iOS device. The application is supported by the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and you’d only need to type down music.google.com and enter your credentials to access the service.

4G has nothing to do with it. I own an iPhone that pulls 5.5 DN and 1.5-1.9 UP. If music can't stream over that or video than you have problems at your website. Also notice where it claims lag on WIFI. I stream Netflix all the time with no issues along with HBO To Go and Soon NFL Sunday Ticket.

Way to be informed.

Initially I thought it was a dumb move by google, but now that I think about it, it is very smart. Give those iBots a taste of how great Google's mobile services are and get them to switch to the light side.

What's the point GOOGLE? Why put your own app in their store when they already have their itunes and their suing your partners

Because people that have no branding under their names would prefer a service that works everywhere and its effective. They could make more money if those who may buy w7 as well as android and ios have services in common they are more likely to buy something tied to them rather than ther device
