There are some bugs(disappearing reappearing music) and there's a lot going on(don't we already have live music? Iheart radio?) but those 3 dots on the bottom right and magnifying glass pretty much provide every option I need.

One major annoyance for me is not being able to create and tune custom radio stations yet we can share them with friends as if you could ever go back to that exact radio station. I hope this is a bug.

Thy being said Apple music ported over a small handful of the kids radio stations I've previously created for my kids in the old music app.

Yeah I don't get all the hate Apple Music is getting. I think it's a great service and while it took a little bit of effort in the very beginning, I get it now. There's just so much going on... But as long as you spend a little time with it you'll be alright.

I know people are having issues with local tracks, but for those without that problem, I think it's a pretty solid service. Not entirely in love with the iOS app's UI, but the offering is solid, and for me it will be easy to switch away from Spotify.

I saved a full copy of my iTunes library before I signed up. I created an "iTunes for AM" library and decided to populate with their stuff not mine. Works great and if I decide not to continue w/AM I can just go back without any problems.

The stuff you'll see here may be mostly negative. For example, I'd post here if I had any problems with something and I wanted help from other people, but when everything's working just fine, you just don't bother coming here and writing about it (well, bigger half of people don't do that).

I also think Apple Music is pretty good but the implementation on OSX and the whole messed up iCloud Music Library thing is really off-putting. I also really want to like it but some bugs need to be worked out. I definitely love Beats1.

To agree with the OP, I'm happy with it compared to Google Music and Spotify, the streaming services I was using in the past.
I quite like the app too (except for Connect which I pinged away). I like the look of it and the way it's organised.
Maybe there were too many people like me in the product testers..

Just spent a couple hours putting together a nice party playlist for July 4th tomorrow. Was super easy. I guess I'm in the minority as well. Been loving the heck out of Apple Music.
