Our App of the Week this week is a strange one. It’s not an app at all – it’s a service. Apple Music was released this week, as part of the latest iOS Music app and iTunes update.
You can sign up for a free three month trial – which puts the entire iTunes library of over 30 million songs at your fingertips, and much more. From then on it’s $9.99 per month, and there’s no free ad-supported option like Spotify has.
As you can see, Apple Music means a redesigned Music app and iTunes. There are new For You, Connect, and Radio tabs. These offer personalized recommendations, contact with artists, and the all-new Beats 1 Radio station, respectively.
It’s not coming to Android devices until the Fall, but Windows, Mac, and iOS users can all check it out right away.
