I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised by it. I signed up for the trial, and turned off auto-renewal, expecting that I wouldn't use it after the free trial is over, but I've been swayed over to it, and will continue after the trial is over.

I like it that I can choose basically any album, and add it to the music on my device, and it's available to listen to even when I'm offline. This will be good when I am on flights. I've been listening to a lot of albums that I haven't listened to in ages. I've also got a couple of new albums that would have cost more to buy individually than I would have paid in the three month trial period, and I still haven't paid a yen.

It's a pretty good service.

Well, Apple Music would definite be preferred over Line streaming

Strangerland, could you please tell me how to do that? I'm also using the service, I add the songs or albums to My Music, but I can't play it offline, only when I'm connected to the net

I may be mistaken, but I tested it by disabling wifi and cellular service, played a few tracks. I wonder if it only caches music for a short period of time or something.

Timeon, you can enable offline functionality by going to the song (or album), and then click the ... button on the right of the song's or album's name. Go down the list and add to My Music and a little bit further down also select "Make available offline".

To be honest, the fact that such obvious buttons are extremely hidden in Apple Music, it erases your previously bought music, and because the interface is truly a mess, all makes it a subpar service compared to Spotify.

Apple is missing a huge opportunity here.

Thanks Hildi!
