March 13, 2014 at 6:43 AM (PT)
Is APPLE's iTUNES RADIO about to shake free from its iOS home and become a stand-alone app?
Yes, writes 9TO5MAC, reporting "In an effort to boost usage of its new streaming music service that launched alongside iOS 7 last fall, APPLE is considering changes to iTUNES RADIO. The CUPERTINO company is now testing iTUNES RADIO as a standalone application with iOS 8, according to sources briefed on the plans."
In the most recent EDISON INFINITE DIAL 2014 data (NET NEWS 3/6), iTUNES RADIO had passed SPOTIFY to become the third most-listened-to webcaster, just behind iHEARTRADIO -- but well behind leader PANDORA.
