Apple now makes Android and Windows Phone apps

One peculiarity in Apple's purchase of Beats for $3 billion,
announced earlier today: Beats still makes apps for Android and
Windows Phone, two of Apple's rival platforms.The deal between the
companies has yet to close, but that immediately left a very serious
question about the future of the service anywhere besides Apple
devices.
Now Apple says Beats Music will live on, at least for now. In an
interview with the Financial Times, Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that
apps on both platforms would remain, saying "It's all about the
music."
The move is a marked change for Apple, which has a long history of
shutting down the services of companies it's purchased - often sooner
if they're available to rivals - and now Beats may prove to be a rare
exception. The subscription version of Beats will live on as a
high-end to the company's free iTunes Radio service, and Apple will
also continue to sell the Beats hardware, including speakers and
headphones in its stores.
