    That big bold font has got to go! It reminds me of Windows Phone OS.

    My big question is, does Apple Music still prefer its metadata to yours? If so, once again, no deal, come back when your approach isn't broken.

    I want the iPod classic back I just want a music app where I can simply search through MY music and listen to my music. I don't want to share what I'm listening to with anyone or "follow" the artist, just find what I want and listen to it. It looks like the iOS Music app is not going to be the means for doing this anymore Time to start looking for a different app or device for music.

    Shame to see that Apple Music and iTunes Store didn't merge... This ought to happen....

    I'd really want a player and a search engine faster.

    This was so not needed. How did this impact developers? Was this life changing in anyway?

    Can we just take a moment and revisit the pre-iOS 7 times when the Music app was actually nearly perfect in terms of design, navigation, and that it just got the job done? Especially if you OWN your own music and have no interest in streaming from a radio station and what not. Sure, some nice features like a 'Play next' option weren't there yet, but I'd take this fast and smooth iOS 6 music player over what they're offering now any day. In fact, iOS 6 is still my daily driver and every time Apple tinkers with the Music app (by adding streaming services and moving the emphasis away from offline music availability), i'm so glad it still is. for now.

    I know its always the way that people don't like change, and there can be often be what sees like criticism for the sake of criticism's sake. But I having said all of that and with the caveat that of course its subjective, but I really don't think I'm going to warm to this in a hurry.

    I might be in the minority but I really didn't get all the fuss about how people couldn't use / navigate the iOS9 version - it seemed fine to me after a short time figuring out what was what.

    This version just seems almost like they thought "Right you morons - you want it simple? We'll give you simple!". The big bold type completely jars with the rest of the OS, although I appreciate its subjective, and I definitely have a preference for smaller lighter text. But this is ridiculous - I'm running it on an iPhone here, and you have things like the screen for an album, with a thumbnail of the album art at the top left, with the artist and album title next to that. But because the test is so big, even with fairly short artist and album names, you only get the first 10-15 characters over three rows - two for the album, one for the artist. So a lot of things like:

    What We
    Saw From T....
    Regina Spe...

    There seem to be fewer options now - for individual tracks there is now only the download icon. No ... to bring up options to play next, add to up next etc. As far as I can tell, if you want to add a single track to a playlist you currently tap on the ... in for the album, and then delete all the tracks from a list you don't want to add.

    I really hope they've stripped this back to basics for this first beta, and will reintroduce and refine it in subsequent betas.

    1 step forward, 2 steps back.

    What the heck is that big bold font at the top, Windows 95?
    The glass translucent panel in the now playing is so annoying, distracting and amateur UI.

    On a positive note the new "Library" section looks promising, it addresses some of the main issues of the previous Apple music, but we'll have to see the rest of it.

    Struggled to add songs to a playlist. Even though I clicked the command, they didn't get added. I tried to copy my playlist, only about 1/2 the songs were in the new one. This seems very broken.

    Hate the huge font. Most track names are cut off. Still hate the pink/red color. Would have welcomed B/W.

    No track lengths????

    Not liking this.

    I don't use Siri and I sync my music from my computer. I just want something that will use my smart playlists and sync play counts. Maybe I can use iSyncr with my iPhone or just get an Android to play my music from iTunes. Ugh.

    I liked the presentation, it was lively. My issue is that Apple Music still looks like crap. I'll hold my final opinion till I get my hands on it but it just simply looks like crap. I'm amazed Eddy still has a job.

    Uh. Apple Music Match still hoses your album artwork.

    I am also noticing that the volume dialog does not show intermittently when pressing the side buttons.

    I feel the same way about iTunes 11, it was much easier and predictable than what came after. Apple is fixing stuff that isn't broken and making it considerably worse.

    The current Apple Music app is very hard to use, so I hope this an improvement. Surely it can't be any worse... can it?

    I subscribe to both, and I think Spotify is boring and very unfriendly. I often don't know which section I'm in, if I ask to see my playlists it chooses which it shows me rather than all my playlists. Ultimately all Spotify has for an interface is lighter text on a darker background, nothing of any merit. I'm also finding it more and more sluggish. Getting from one section to another or searching often takes long enough to make me quit the app and reload it.

    Spotify gets too much credit, the one thing it does have is the catalogue. If Apple could get the stuff they are missing I could cancel my Spotify account.
