In response to an inquiry about the promotion with Apple, Bono said that he got "carried away" with a beautiful idea. He also said that he might have been a bit worried that the songs that took up the bands' lives for a few years, would never be heard.
Apple was forced to create a tool to allow those who didn't want the album on their iPhone or iPad, to be able to remove it. Apple paid the band and Universal Music Group $100 million, so that the company can continue to work with U2 in a long-term relationship. Meanwhile, iTunes users downloaded the complete album 26 million times. 81 million people have listened to Songs of Innocence via iTunes, iTunes Radio, and Beats Music.

I like U2 and I liked the fact that it comes free. Too bad I don't have any iDevice. Also I don't like the idea that it comes preinstalled, maybe an online coupon or stub should do if they want it.
