My Music (2)
Alongside a protracted listing of new options on iOS 10 comes a redesigned Music app. However, I second splendidmike’s suggestion that the ‘music for video’ section would work higher should you may see all of these tracks in one list.
I’ve yet to try AM – & unsure I will given this discussion – but it’s as much as an artist whether they want their music on a service – or not – Apple cannot demand they provide it (bands on RIAA-registered labels aside, I even have no truck with the RIAA, and most of the bands/artists to which I listen recurrently, do not either).
Both from UX and a backend improvement perspective, combining the streaming service with regular music from iTunes is needlessly sophisticated.
Levinowitz compares music you play to the foods you serve: you do not need your baby eating only mac and cheese, or similarly, listening to the identical CD on a regular basis.
I get the distant impression that any testing Apple did for AppleMusic they have been basically testing on folks inside the firm – who all had free iTunes accounts and all their music, in contrast to in the actual world,was purchased from the iTunes retailer.
