The official Google Play Music Application has finally arrived on Apple's iOS platform after months of delay.

The iOS version of Google Play Music is said to match up with its Android counterpart, which will enable users to store and stream their own music libraries. Users will also be able to track music from several other labels with the $9.99 per month All access upgrade.

Custom radio stations from any song or music albums can be created along with the predefined station from the app.

The Google Play Music app for iOS gives the freedom of skipping tracks without a limit while listening to radio stations unlike Pandora and iTunes Radio which includes skipping limits, reported Apple Insider.

The app is available as a free download from the App Store and new users will receive one free month of All Access service.

The Google Play Music App is sized 4MB and is compatible with iOS 6.0 and above in iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The app is also optimised for iPhone 5. [The app can be downloaded from here]

In addition to the Google Play Music App release, it has been noted that Apple has asked developers to focus on the Mail and Graphics features in the first Mavericks 10.9.1 OS X beta.

The OS X 10.9.1 is said to be the first update for Mavericks since its release on the Mac App Store in October. The OS will be compatible with all Mac users. Systems running Snow Leopard or above can upgrade to Mavericks, for free of charge.

Along with the first upgrade to Mavericks, Apple is also rumoured to work on its next major OS X release - version 10.10. Apple Insider had earlier indicated that the testing of an unnamed OS has been growing steadily.
