    Apple Music Subscription - worth the cost?
    Is an Apple Music Subscription worth the cost?

    Does it make a difference if I already have Amazon Prime (not the Music Subscription at the moment) ?

    How does it compare with Spotify?

    I've used Spotify free (with ads and other limitations) for a while and it was fine. I've switched over to Amazon and being a Prime member enjoy way more music (even recent releases) with no ads or skip limits. Going up to Amazon Unlimited or Apple Music subscription has the advantage of being able to play music offline and I believe Apple Music will also allow you to "upload" your own music from your local collection and have it be available on any other device for streaming later on.

    Unless you are finding severely limited in the music collection available to you, the subscription might not make a whole lot of sense especially when Amazon will continue to give you a lot with your Prime membership.

    Probably good advice thanks. Pretty much what I was thinking


    Edit - what is this "write a word backwards" thing?
    Seems a shame to drive people away like that

    The site has been up and down for the past day or so and now that it's working again, a bunch of functionality that existed before is missing and this Random question BS has showed up to users (all users, even Staff) for every reply and it is VERY annoying!

    Thanks - no quick reply either.

    Hope it gets sorted soon

    And how does Apple Music Subscription fare against Spotify? I haven't used any of them and I'm wondering which one to choose. Most of my friends use paid Spotify, and they are satisfied, but maybe someone thinks that the Apple app is better?

    Welcome to our Forums, PurpleRabbit84.

    Without any offence intended, I think Ashwin pretty well covered this in post #2.

    It is very personal at the end of the day. Maybe these links below will give you a feel for the types of offer available?
