Would Apple approve a native iOS app for Google’s cloud music service, Music Beta? It remains to be seen if Google will give it a try, but for now there is a new HTML5 web-app for Music Beta, which went live yesterday. iPhone users pointing their Safari browsers to music.google.com can access their lockers, play songs, search and shuffle. The music plays in the background even when the browser is shut down – a pretty critical feature for any music web app. Google’s spokesperson tells TechCrunch that “we’re consdering all options to bring the service to more people, but don’t have anything official to share” to the question about a native iOS app. An Android app was launched alongside the service earlier this year.
