iTunes’ users may have an easier and potentially less expensive way to download a song.
Apple wants to see if users could have an unlimited number of times that they download a song from iTunes after initially paying for it, according to media reports.
Currently, users who buy a song on iTunes download it once, and can’t download it again without paying again, explains TG Daily.
It is the user’s responsibility to store the audio file and not lose it.
It is a particular issue for users with many media devices. Transferring files among devices can be time-consuming.
TG Daily explains the record labels are the ones who put in place the one- download-per-payment requirement.
TG Daily points out that when Sony offered the Connect digital music store, users could download a song up to five times after they paid for it.
In related iTunes news, TechZone360 reported late last year that Apple’s iTunes was clearly dominant in the digital market.
iTunes has 66.2 percent of the digital market. The next closest provider is Amazon, which had 13.3 percent of the digital market.
Digital Trends reports that there are days that Apple’s iTunes got almost 90 percent of the digital market. This left Amazon at a distant 6-10 percent, according to TechZone360.
In other iTunes news, the Billboard Chart App is now available on the iTunes App store, according to TechZone360.
The App features 15 charts, from the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 to genre rankings and ringtones, according to TechZone360.
In addition, users will have access to 60 years of chart history, and can search the many offerings either by artist, album or song, view the Billboard rankings, listen to 30 seconds of the song of their choice, and then make their purchases directly through iTunes, according to TechZone360.
