Apple to overhaul iTunes, Could launch Android version soon

When Apple launched iTunes Radio in the U.S. last year, it was warmly accepted by Apple fans. iTunes Radio was basically Apple's response to rising music streaming services like Pandora and Spotify, which all took a large chunk of Apple's money.

In spite of Apple's efforts, the booming on-demand music streaming services fueled by the rise of Android diminished music downloads. Android, for example, has a mix of popular radio apps such as TuneIn, not to mention its own Google Play Music All Access.

According to Billboard, Apple is now looking to overhaul its iTunes music store. Specifically, Apple is reportedly planning to launch an on-demand streaming service as well as an iTunes store for Google's Android OS.

“iTunes Radio hasn’t solved the problem of refreshing the iTunes store,” a senior label executive told Billboard. “While listeners are clicking the buy buttons, the traffic it is driving is in the low single digits of listeners.”

As to when they will launch, sources added that Apple is committed to making it happen. Apple, meanwhile, declined to comment on the report.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
