    I'm genuinely curious. I noticed this week I use it a lot more then I ever thought. IMO, other then the design, its one of the best things Apple introduced in iOS 7.

    So, how many hours a day?

    I'm finding myself listening all day. I agree iTunes Radio is an incredible addition to the overall iOS experience. It's the best overall music service. I love it.

    Have you used it in the last couple of weeks? People are saying that Apple improves the algorithm and I want to say they might be right. The other day was the first time really using it since updating to 7.1, and I didn't get a single repeat over a 6 hour period. Pre-7.1, I would get repeats within the first hour.

    About an hour. It's a cool way for me to discover new music, and I've become a fan of a few bands because of it.

    You should add the option: "I don't have iTunes Radio in my country yet" :p

    nope, used it once when it first came out & haven't looked back since. I'll try it out again though if that's the case

    I don't listen to it everyday but when I do it's usually for a couple hours. I am the type of person who usually knows exactly what they want to listen to, so I don
    't use radio stations much. What I really want is a full blown subscription service from Apple, like Spotify, Rdio, or Google All Access. I currently get All Access from Google for $7.99 a month but I would love to see Apple enter this space and what it'd look like.

    A few hours a day. I buy/own the majority of my music, and only use it for discovery.

    After using Pandora for years I doubt I'll renew this year. I listen to iTunes
    Radio all day long. Even bought an iPod 5th ten for the truck that uses my
    iPhone to connect.....no muss no fuss...get in and go no wires no fumbling.
    It just woks.....

    iTunes catalog > Pandora and Spotify. I listen to a lot of international songs and the other guys don't have squat for titles.

    Don't listen to it all, because Apple haven't got their finger out and brought it out in the UK yet.

    Loving Spotify Radio though.

    I figured I'd try it out again today after reading this thread.

    It's good however what quality is audio? It sounds good but it's being a huge data hog vs pandora. Can I adjust this?

    Also, how do I get rid of the Ads? I can't stand them. Is there an option to pay so I don't have to listen to them?

    iTunes music is 256 kbps quality, iTunes Radio is 192. I'm guessing there so if I'm wrong, someone feel free to correct me. Subscribing to iTunes Match removes all ads.

    I can't stand iTunes radio. The noticeable drop in volume bugs me.

    I use Spotify. But man, if iTunes had an on-demand service LIKE Spotify? I'd leap on that, even if it cost more.

    Never!!
    But I think we are missing 1 voting choice in this poll. Perhaps you assumed that everyone using iOS device have the iTunes radio. Not everyone does. I think you should have add a vote option I don't have it.

    I never listen to it because I don't have it.
