    I am really enjoying Apple Music. For anyone that has a large iTunes library and wants to seamlessly integrate a subscription streaming service, Apple Music is fantastic. I prefer Apple music over Spotify and Tidal. I really like Apple's interface, although I feel like there's still room for improvement. It's leaps better than other mobile interfaces that I've seen.

    I haven't experienced any bugs yet, so far it's smooth sailing for me.

    Can't say until iTunes 12.2 comes out, which supposedly will be later today. My main use for this is going to be on the desktop.

    It's ok, hasn't blown me away yet. It's not as intuitive as I would have suspected from Apple, Pandora and Spotify are easier to navigate, but they have 3 months to iron it it out. Surprised the OS X version isn't available yet. The fact that iTunes Match seems to have disappeared, yet it still seems to be there depending how a setting in the Artist menu is set (funny place to hid it) considering its a paid for service they should be treating it bit better.

    Ok so if it streams stuff that you own you can't select the little heart, I guess it assumes that you own it so you like it (big assumption).

    I'm not ready to trade Spotify for it at this point. There's waaaaaay more available on Spotify.

    I think th
    Both Apple music and Spotify have about 30 million tracks each. It's possible that Spotify has more tracks suited for you, but neither have the advantage at this point.

    I'm finding a few holes in the catalog but I wonder if not all of the deals are in place. Some of the missing stuff seems to be newer stuff.

    UI is super confusing and too packed.

    They really need to stream line it. Cut the connect crap and make it easier to do everything.

    It its good though, but stuff could be so much better.

    So far so good. One reason why I never went to others because I like having all my music in one app, and now I have it. So far I like it and it might even save me money. The downside is, if I cancel, I have nothing to show for.

    I'm not an apple-sycophant in the slightest, I always call out Apple when they do things that I think are lame. But this ISN'T one of those situations. Apple Music is fricken awesome! I've been using it ALL day, and I've been having way more fun with music than I've had in a long time. I have no problem navigating the UI, it makes reasonably good sense to me. Each feature is nested right where I expected it to be, and by just exploring around the app in areas that are interesting to me I keep wind up finding cool new features that I wouldn't have even thought of.

    It's not even a question of tracks suited for me. The tracks I listen to on Spotify are either not there, or too difficult to find in Apple Music at this point.

    There was another thread a few days ago asking if Apple Music would be hosting non English music. Now we know the answer...yes and no. If you want 20 year old non English, there's lots there. But contemporary? Not so much.
