Windows 8 users have access to 60,000 different apps, but iTunes won’t be one of them for a long time, said Tami Reller, CFO of the Windows division, in an interview. CNN Money.
Of course, users of the operating system have access to Apple’s service. However, to open iTunes it is necessary to use Windows “desktop mode”. On tablets such as Windows RT, which do not have this option, it is impossible to access the program.
Apple sees no reason to develop an application that improves the experience of using a competing product, such as the Surface, but the Microsoft “boycott” has not compromised the performance of the app store. According to the company, the volume of downloads has been growing and reached 250 million.
The company believes that most of the applications available on iTunes will soon be in its store. In addition, it also has a service similar to Apple’s for organizing music, but it was not as successful as iTunes.
