    Is Itunes radio still very buggy for other people, it force closes all the time on my 4S sometime 3-4 times in a row.

    For me sometimes when I skip a song it loads the same song again which end up using up one of your hourly skips but, problem solved with jailbreak which has an itunes unlimited skips + no ads hack :D

    mine crashes once every five times i use it. it also plays the same songs over and over again. if i select play more like this it just keeps playing that song every time i launch it.

    it needs a serious overhaul, this wasn't ready for prime time.

    iTunes Radio was considerably improved in iOS 7.1 beta 4 and beta 5 continues the improvement.

    Since beta 4, I've had zero crashes, zero song repeats and what appears to be more of a Pandora experience in terms of similar artists/songs when I choose that.

    Perhaps this was always there but you can pull down within iTunes Radio and search for an Artist, Genre or Song and it will create a station based on your input.

    I think beta 5 is still buggy. I've had songs just stop while playing, and unable to restart it. And the volume of the songs is still too low.

    It probably still has bugs but for me, it's vastly improved.

    I've even not reinstalled Pandora because it's good enough now, at least for me.

    If the volume would be normal levels, I would actually use it.

    What model/device are you using?

    Hopefully we'll get at least one more rock solid beta (maybe even two) before GM!

    I havent had any bugs but I have noticed a data consumption issue.

    I did a quick test of iTunes radio vs. Pandora for 10 minutes each.

    iTunes Radio consumed 8.5mb
    Pandora consumed 4.3mb

    Could this be accurate? Any explination why one would use almost twice the data? This alone would make me never use iTunes Radio unless I was on wifi.

    iPhone 5S. Playing iTunes Radio and then Spotify you will notice the huge difference in volume.

    I use it at the gym as our gym has pretty good WiFi (except this morning, when it didn't work at all). I've never had any problems with it. I'm on a 5 with 7.0.4.

    Add me to the problem list. I have several lists I listen to but my favorite is buggy. Sometime plays, sometimes not. More often than not it starts with the same song which is aggravating because I might get ten minutes listening and have to leave. Start it up again and we are back at square one.

    I do like free and no commercials or ads though. I guess you get what you pay for.
