DoubleTwist, the developers behind the doubleTwist Music Player app for Android, today introduced a new app that lets Android users
steal “record” music from iTunes. The doubleTwist Music Player app is popular among Apple device users for its ability to AirPlay music from Android devices to Apple TV and AirPlay supported audio accessories. The new app called iTunes Radio Recorder will allow users to save songs from iTunes that are streaming through iTunes Radio or locked to the app through DRM. Here’s how it works:
After downloading the free iTunes Radio Recorder app on an Android device, users can simply select it as an AirPlay device from iTunes on their Mac or PC to begin recording songs and radio stations over WiFi. The process takes place in real-time, which means a 3 minute song will actually take three minutes to record, but once it’s done you’ll have a copy saved forever to play from your music app of choice on Android. There’s also an in-app purchase option that will upgrade recordings to higher-quality AAC VBR recordings. We have a feeling that Apple isn’t going to like this app very much, but it’s unclear if the app violates any of Apple’s policies related to the use of AirPlay.
