    Apple Music. I click on an album and make it available offline. 15 minutes later it has downloaded 7 of the 18 tracks.

    Deezer. I do the same with the same albums and all 18 tracks download within 3 minutes.

    Deezer/Nextflix. I press play and the music or film starts to play almost immediately.

    Apple Music. Press play and 7-15 seconds later it plays.

    It's a new service, teething problems. Spotify and Netflix were not perfect for the first 6-12 months either.

    Sorry that's no excuse.

    The largest company in the world had YEARS to improve on the competition.

    But it is an excuse. If you can't accept that then don't use it.

    You're absolutely correct.

    Plus it's important to factor in that Apple is very weak with all things wireless, streaming, iCloud it's predecessor MobileMe etc. They just don't seem to get it.

    It's those disasters that influenced Apple to pay a whopping THREE Billion Dollars for Beats, including Jimmy Iovine. He's the only one that's truly got well rounded skills, terrific connections in the industry and is old enough to manage more than just thug life music.

    I think Apple is having data center issues these past couple days. Maybe they are shuffling things around to prepare for the iOS 9 launch.

    I'm getting annoying delays viewing photos in iCloud Photo Library as well.

    Curiosity killed the cat. Arrogance killed MySpace, AOL and BlackBerry.

    You know, nothing ever satisfies all you dudes. If Apple can't compete, then users will leave and never come back. Its called Capitalism.

    Have you tried another streaming service?

    AM is quite easily the worst of the lot.

    Yes I have and, for me, AM integration with my iOS devices is the best selling point. If things don't get better over time, I will return to my other streaming services.

    Thats what I thought until I asked Siri to play a song. It either says it’s playing the song and it plays nothing. Or it plays the song by a total random artist and not the original.

    I don’t think the AM integration is better than other services. Each to our own I guess.

    I don't understand why siri is doing that for you, but I never had that happen - and I use siri AM integration many times per day. Not once has this happened. Maybe there's something wrong but I doubt everyone has that experience. If they did, the tech media would have been all over it.
