Does anyone else dislike the fact that you can't save custom station on iTunes Radio any more? If you want to access a station you have to find something in your library and create a station every time.

Also... selecting "more like this" or "less like this" seems to be universal and not pertaining to a particular station. What if you want a song to play on one station but not another station that is similar? It seems really limited and confusing. I've loved iTunes Radio up until ios9 beta 1

You can still create custom radios, tap the magnifying glass(search) on the top right and type whatever radio you want to create, then when it pops up, tap it. The feature is still there, just a little different on how to add the stations EDIT: I see what you mean about saving them. Hmm maybe it's a bug? I doubt they'll remove this feature.

There are also no settings for a station any more.

I was looking for the "explicit lyrics", which I KNOW was in 8.3 and earlier and it's just not there. And yeah, you don't appear to be able to save custom stations at the moment.

iTunes Radio was broken in the first 8.4 beta with the new music app.

Either it's becoming more limited with the release of Apple music or they'll fix it with the 8.4 GM and later iOS 9 betas.

I have noticed things changing with iTunes Radio over the past week it seems. New featured station section, and some new categories with different stations. So they are doing some work behind the scenes.

The only way I have been able to turn explicit music on is to do it in the most recent version of iTunes. That will carry over to your other devices. I think they removed it in 8.4.
