Glad to know I'm not alone!

It's a great app; I love that I can stream my personal collection.

of course this app isn't for everyone but no one is making them use it

The UI on Google Play is much better than Spotify - it (Google) is more like Rdio. Spotify looks like an Excel spreadsheet.

With scathing retorts like this, it's no wonder Samsung has to pay hundreds of people to post here.

Comeon, man. You can come up with something better than that.

I haven't been happier since leaving Apple. I actually have found a brand (Samsung) that's willing to innovate and bring new offerings to make me a happy consumer. Apple, however, sticks to their stupid two dimensional OS and refuses to let loose their software for a full consumer experience.

I simply just don't see how people can be mesmerized by pieces of crap.

Different strokes for different folks. And isn't it the point that it's great for an individual to choose for themselves what works best FOR THEM. The pissing contest is silly.

Like you - I have a Samsung (Skyrocket - but will probably be upgrading to the S4 after the summer). I've owned all the iPhones but I don't use them much anymore. I much prefer the bigger screen and several other personal benefits I've found with Android. One's that matter to me. Maybe not to others - but what do I care what others use their phone for?

Oh how easy it is to smoke out the Samsung fanboys. Tell us why you are still here and not over at an android site as by your own admission you no longer use Apple products.

Funny statement coming from the owner of a Samsung product!

I sincerely missed the part where he said he didn't own any apple products. Wasn't he just talking about phones?

Also - just as an FYI/PSA - you don't have to own Apple products or even like Apple products to read and post here. It's not part of the forum rules. I don't think he needs to "justify" why he's here or why he posts. Unless that's also a forum rule I'm not aware of.

The name is "All Access" and is a part of the "Music" section in Google's Play Store. If we assume that Apple's radio service will be called iRadio, then it would be comparable to "Apple iTunes Music iRadio."

MacRumors is now one of the best sites to visit for Android news...just look at this post about Music All Access for Google play. What does it have to do with Apple products?

I am loving this. A band that I bought several CDs from a few years back has a new CD out two days ago. I can listen to the whole thing without even buying it on iTunes now and even store it on my Nexus4/7.

I think this will be my most used service ever, even more than XM.

Frankly, imho, there isn't that much good stuff out there worth that kind of $$.
Hate to say it, but that's where it's headed. Even software is going that route now - see Adobe.

The $7.99/month price attracts me as long as I sign up by 6/30. However, there is no iOS app, which makes me gawk at switching since Rdio has had me as a subscriber for well over a year now. I may try out the 30-day free trial though.

I know... Revenue steams are better if you get people to pay every month... The "buy once, own it forever" idea is NOT going to be around much longer.
Sad but true.

Same here, although I've been an Rdio subscriber for almost 2 years. I did start my All Access trial and I'm hoping that at least the Google Play web app is updated so that it works with All Access on iOS before my trial is up. I'd really like to have streaming access combined with the music I already have that is not available for streaming.

I also tried the gMusic app and although it does show All Access music that I've added to my Library, it can't play it, displaying an "Unable to play music" dialog.

The gMusic iOS app was just updated today and it now works with All Access!

I prefer iTunes as I like to own the songs, the quality is excellent and I can listen on any of my apple devices. I also don't need to rely on "streaming" service and internet. Best of all it works seamless. The music match service with iTunes also matches my non itunes collection on the cloud so I have it all backed up.
