    I love using Apple Music, it allows you to stream virtually any album. It also lets you download songs (or even entire albums) so you can listen to them offline. So if you're not on Wifi you can still listen without using any of your cellular data. It does cost a subscription fee however, as much as my husband and I use it I think it's totally worth it.

    hehe How's that? You have to either subscribe monthly, or buy individual albums. Actually, I think verified "students" get it for free. I'm not sure. :)

    As if Microsoft is any better? Hell, they've cornered the market on operating systems. Then there is Google who owns just about everything that Amazon doesn't. lol

    I think Apple music is pretty comparable to other music streaming services e.g. Spotify, Tidal, etc.

    Personally, I love iTunes. It has a lot of music that Spotify doesn't have. Plus it's easier to organize, and it show album covers. Very cool!

    Honestly I don't care either way what I use, as long as it works are my feelings. I don't have an Ipad or an Apple pc because they charge way too much for both impo. :p

    I agree Apple products are not exactly affordable. I must say that my devices have been very reliable from my experience. Any upgrades I've done is for the sole reason that I wanted the latest release to take advantage of new features. Well, if I'm honest I don't get the latest and greatest I'm usually at least a couple of years behind. lol I find the devices are less expensive to acquire this way and I don't mind buying used. Apple products have a reputation with me to be completely user friendly and the learning curve is not that troublesome at all compared to other devices I've used in the past. (I am still trying to get used to Windows 10.) Except for ITunes, I am never confident when it comes to messing with music lol Apple Music makes it a little easier as the subscription allows me to pick and choose songs/artists/and bands and it's simple to put a playlist together.

    I've had no issues with iTunes, well other than not being able to use customer service because I don't have an Apple "serial number" from my product. But for $10 a month for unlimited streaming music works. No ads, and I've found TONNES of shit that Spotify does NOT have, at all. :)
