    apple's For You feature in its Music app is really well done.

    I've read comments bashing it. but for me its giving me access to groups and singers/songwriters that maybe i had heard of vaguely before or just knew a little bit about before, but doing a great job of presenting them with excellent selections to showcase the artist.

    I'm only using Music to stream, not to download the songs for off line listening. i still prefer to own my music. i have bought more music from apple in the last week than i have in a long time and spending more time within the app than i was spending in its predecessor.

    I have all of my songs on iCloud and have the Apple Muisc songs I like added into there, so basically I'm getting a mixture of what I've already purchased and whatever Apple Music I have added in there. It's a good mix and I don't have to take up room on my phone.

    That is a nice discovery feature. But after the three free months i've already decided to stop my subscription.
    The missing offline feature for playlist (discovery) is missing. I do know you can download small playlists.

    I will stick with MixRadio and waiting for them to launch again a paid version but untill then i will continue with using the free version (no audio/video ads, only small banner in app, 6x skips per list per hour max).
