Turntable.fm now Available on Android
It seems like very soon there will be no iPhone applications that do not have an Android counterpart. Instagram made the switch across platforms a while back, and more recently, Flipboard was made available to Android users. Now Turntable.fm can also be found for free download on Google Play.
Turntable.fm is a simple music application that allows you to share your favorite tunes with friends. Rather than pass YouTube links back and forth, you can create and join a group and play a track for everyone's benefit. The application has its own extensive library and collection of songs to choose from, and they stream for free. The option to download any content you like from Amazon is also present.
As Android gains more market share and establishes itself further, app developers will have no choice but to introduce dual versions of their products. After the early popularity of iOS leading developers to focus their capabilities exclusively towards Apple, the tables seem to have turned. Android provides developers access to core functionality of the devices, such as SMS features, which Apple's walled garden philosophy does not allow. Once app makers start to focus on these aspects, we might just find Android-exclusive applications coming to the fore and iOS users missing out.
