Google today made a new web app available to iOS devices that allows them to access their Google Music account and stream their music files to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. The application is accessible from music.google.com, and requires that users have an active Google Music Beta account. Phone Scoop tested the application, and confirmed that it works over 3G and Wi-Fi. Music can play in the background while the iOS device is used for other tasks, such as email and browsing to other web sites. It supports swiping gestures for navigating between songs, albums, artists, and playlists, and supports search, loop, and shuffle functions. The web app is free to use. Google has already published a native Google Music application for the Android platform.

instead of wasting their time on iOS

They should be improving their sorry ass Google apps for android. Well maybe they aren't sorry but you get my drift. I'm in a bad mood today.

The beginning of an end

The ending days of the Apple "App Store"?

Is this the way around the tight grip that Apple has with its store?

but does this compromise convenience? Now how will they supplement the lost conveience of having an app on your homescreen, but wouldn't manufactures just create an web bookmark available to be stored on the homescreen (if this doesn't already exist I would be surprised)? if so one could just simply go to the web version of all the apps they would like to replace and save the webpage as a bookmark on the homescreen and just launch from the homescreen with one click just as conveient as an app.

Maybe I'm stretching my imagination too far.
