iTunes 'Metro' App For Windows 8 Will Not Come 'Any Time Soon'

Windows 8 "Metro" Interface

During an interview with CNN Money, Microsoft CFO Tami Relller said that they talked with Apple about developing an iTunes app for Windows 8, but users shouldn’t expect the app "any time soon". She notes:

"ITunes is in high demand. The welcome mat has been laid out. It's not for lack of trying."

iTunes 11 is currently can be used in Windows 8's "Desktop" mode, a traditional PC interface that works well with a mouse and keyboard. However, Microsoft wants Apple to release an iTunes app for its "Metro" interface that features colorful, flat blocks optimized for a touchscreen.

CNN Money notes that Apple is unlikely to meet Microsoft's request because it has no reason to help make the Surface better.
