Apple reportedly working on its first Android app ever, it might be a Beats-powered music service
posted by Peter K. / Feb 05, 2015, 7:28 AM
Rumors claim that Apple's streaming service rival will command monthly installments of just $7.99, which is cheaper than the aforementioned Spotify and most of the bigger names in the music-streaming business. If Apple puts such a price tag, there will probably be some shiftings on the market, but if Cupertino wants to be really successful in this aspect, it surely needs to consider making an Android app for its music streaming service.
According to some sources, this will certainly happen. Tech insiders close to Cupertino have allegedly claimed that Apple is really prepping its first app for Google's platform, which will allow Android users to flock towards its Beats-powered music subscription service.
We can only speculate that the Beats-powered music-streaming service will debut at this year's WWDC event (as it's one of the more major events for Apple in the foreseeable future). If the rumors are true, Apple's first Android app might arrive sometime near or after the developers' conference.

Whoa. Steve Jobs is turning in his grave/urn at the thought of Apple making anything for the Android platform.

If he didnt already turn when Apple bought out Beats. He would have preferred that Apple would have positioned itself with premium headphones, ear buds, etc. instead of buying themselves into that market.

Hopefully Beats is not the only thing... I know many Android users who want iMessage, Facetime, and Find My Friends, among other features on iOS... I just got the last update for iTunes - this thing is freakin Awesome... Too bad you guys still rely on basic file transfer/organize ways introduced in windows 3.1

It better not look or work like an iOS app.

I think it would be appropriate for Apple to return the favour. All of Google's apps on iOS look like Android apps.

I like iOS design language. But new Google's Material Design deserves praise as well.. I kind of like Google to keep their design aspects for iOS apps - Google is a giant with its own ecosystem - it keeps their services visually different so you know which ecosystem you're in. Unlike on Android, with iOS we get best of all platforms: Apple, Google, MS, and BB... Choice is really with Apple users...

Something, on an android will in one shape or another have an apple logo? unsure how to react, logical conflict! :)

Well one of the reasons Apple dropped Google Maps as default (and in effect made it a download instead) was because Google insisted to plaster their Logo all over the place, read somewhere that Google wanted their logo even bigger after initial licencing expired...
