Music Making Software Is Back: Fox Sports says it’s bringing back its music making app
A music making application that was acquired by Apple and acquired by Google for $400 million in 2012 will be back, Fox Sports announced Tuesday.
The app, Music Maker, is now available for purchase on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Fox Sports said that the app is available on Android and iOS, and will work with Apple’s Watch, Pebble, Samsung Gear and Gear Live smartwatches.
“Music Maker brings a unique, fun, and intuitive user experience to the Apple Watch, making it a favorite among our fans,” Fox Sports CEO Scott Ainsworth said in a statement.
“We are excited to bring it to the Android and Android Wear platforms and the Apple watchOS platform.”
The app was purchased by Apple in February 2012 for $410 million, which included $400 in cash.
Apple acquired Music Maker in January 2012 for a reported $350 million, including $300 million in cash, for an undisclosed fee.
Music Maker is the company’s first music making solution for Apple Watch and Pebble.
Apple Watch: The Apple Watch has been designed with music in mind, but it still lacks a fully-featured app to make playing music with your friends and family easier.
Apple’s new smartwatch has support for Spotify Premium, Beats Music, and Pandora Premium, and can stream tracks from Apple Music, iHeartRadio, and the Pandora App on your iPhone or iPad.
Apple is also bringing a Music Maker app to the Google Play Store for iPhone and iPad, and a Google Play app for Android phones and tablets.
Google has been pushing its own music making applications for years, but Music Maker has become the most popular.
Google’s Music Maker is available for Android smartphones and tablets and is compatible with all Android Wear smartwears, including the Moto 360 and the Samsung Gear Live.
Apple has been working to bring its music apps to Apple Watch for several years.
Apple said in February that it had partnered with Spotify to bring the app to Apple’s watch.
Spotify also released a version of Music Maker for Android Wear, and Apple also recently announced a new version of the app for Apple Watches.
