Features Review

Flesh of Apple Flesh

Unlike most players of the earlier era, Apple Music looks like a catalogue, sharing this feature with desktop iTunes application. When you add music from iTunes to it, it can be found via track name, artist name, genre, or playlist you included it into. Thus you can create as many playlists as you wish, and different playlists can include the same tracks.

It can play tracks purchased elsewhere, but you need to import them to iTunes on your desktop and then sync your iDevice to iTunes to make them available. It supports .MP3 along with proprietary .AAC (lossy) and .ALAC (lossless) audio formats. Other formats can be imported too, but they first have to be converted in iTunes. The app provides decent sound quality, especially with .ALAC files.

Player as a Service

Following Spotify and Pandora, Apple Music functions as an online radio with personalized stations and curated playlists. You can import them to your library or form your own. Playlists you create on your iPhone or iPad with Apple Music app are synced to your iTunes on PC or Mac, and then you can play or edit them. And it doesn’t matter whether you used Apple Music iOS or Android version: they’re identical.

The subscription is $6.99/mo, and for that sum, you get unlimited access to the entire library, plus you can cache music on your device to listen to it while offline. You can try it for a month, and if you cancel your subscription before it ends, you won’t be charged.

Apple can afford making its own service free. Another service owned by Apple, Shazam, is integrated with Apple Music too. So your shazams form a special playlist, and tracks you identify with it can be easily accessed via the app.

Pros

♦ Enormous music library;

♦ Easy interface and iTunes integration;

♦ Always ad-free;

♦ Integrated with Shazam;

♦ Personalized playlists and stations with daily recommendations.

Cons

♦ The catalogue lacks some cult records;

♦ If you stick to Android, Google Play Music may be a better choice.

To Bite or Not to Bite?

If you use an iDevice, you probably have Apple Music for iOS preinstalled. But those using both devices or having a large collection in iTunes better download Apple Music for Android to access its large library and great playlists.
