iTunes Radio vs Pandora

You think iTunes radio will be a hit or flop?

Depends on who you ask. I personally like it because it's built right in.

My first experience was, I was shocked to find it had the genres I listen to.

But it was taking a long time to load, then it froze so I never got a chance to listen.

The trend now is people aren't holding music on their devices, rather just listening to it from the cloud. I deleted all the music from my music app.

Saved me 6GB just about.

I'm a fan.

My experience is that the stations are much more accurate and varied than Pandora. Also, I'm a Match subscriber, so it is commercial-free for me.

I love iTunes Radio and I think it will be a hit. Pandora sucks. I prefer Spotify over Pandora but now iTunes Radio I'm sold

I'm not sure iTunes radio has the songs I'm looking for. Also the interface of Pandora is better.

You know the Store button always gets in the way, I hit it accidentally and it takes me out of the app.

In my experience it tends to repeat songs day to day. Especially in the spanish genre. So ill probably use pandora for spanish and itunes radio for english.

Oh and in beta 4 of iOS 7 there is two new options to select explicit lyrics and change the music genre from hits, variety or discovery music
