According to a report from Billboard, word has it that Apple is considering launching iTunes on the Android platform to help combat declining music sales.
In the same report we are told that Apple executives are also talking with major music labels to launch a possible rival to services like Spotify and Rdio, this would be a bold but very smart move from the guys and girls in Cupertino.
The late Steve Jobs was asked about bringing the iTunes service to Android back in 2011 and this was his reply:
“We thought about whether we should do a music client for Android. We put iTunes on Windows in order to sell more iPods. But I don’t see an advantage of putting our own music app on Android, except to make Android users happy. And I don’t want to make Android users happy.”
We’d expect nothing less from Mr Jobs it must be said with his hate for the Android platform, but with his passing could this be a possibility? after all Apple are in the game to make money not keep Steve Jobs fans happy.
What are your thoughts on iTunes on Android? are you for or against such a service.
