Beats Music 2.3.2

Lots of visual flair, but standard usability

Beats Music has entered the world of streaming music, but takes a risk by not offering a free option. The premium-only service offers "highly" curated playlists from an internal team and also established brands like Pitchfork and Alternative Press.

Beats Music promotes an interesting idea, but the paid-only option leaves little reason for people to leave other services like Pandora or Spotify.

PROS

  • Great selection of music
  • Quick to jump into playlists
  • Offiline playback

CONS

  • Broken in-app sign up
  • Random freezing during playback
  • Random crashes when navigating app
  • Premium subcription only
  • Too much focus on visual interface makes navigating frustrating
