Congrats to the Google Play Music team!
"Apple Music is messy, slow to load, complicated to setup, and missing some social features. Apple has created a music service that can be both overwhelming and sparse at the same time."
"While it’s great that Apple will soon have its music service on every platform of consequence, so far the apps themselves are confusing and hard to navigate. Apple has a lot of work to do to make things easier to find and use — it’s a surprising misstep for a company that prides itself on simplicity."
"On the desktop, Apple decided against building a stand-alone app and instead shoved Apple Music into iTunes — it’s less than stellar. Nobody likes using iTunes."
"Apple Music on the desktop is slow and heavy, and has more than a few times refused to stream music for me. If you want to put a song or album from Apple Music on repeat, you have to go on a scavenger hunt through the menu bar, and it may or may not work. "
"But on the iPhone, Apple Music often feels like a beautifully curated maze that you will never find your way out of. It looks great, but when it’s time to actually get somewhere that Apple hasn’t prompted you to go, it can be incredibly difficult."
"The good thing for Apple is all of the issues with Apple Music are fixable. The bad thing is we have to live with a messy app until Apple decides to address the issues. Apple Music has made iTunes even more bloated, and it’s going to take a lot of work to build a cohesive product over mobile and desktop."
