Apple Music and Beats 1 radio face “confusing” and “complicated” day one
Much to the admiration of everyone (virtually everyone), Apple launched Beats 1 online radio station and Apple Music song streaming service on June 30. The duo of amazing software has gathered reviews, thumbs ups and criticism from all low and beyond high — which is a common trait among new viral software.
As we went through some of the reviews found online, BestMobs found so many complaints about glitches and errors on Apple Music, with one user calling the app as “super buggy.”
Moving on to Apple Beats 1 radio, the online radio station started out with a “heroic” arrival when DJ Zane Lowe started talking to his studio engineer when testing the service some 30 minutes before the officially launch time. An epic jazz music was playing in the background as the engineer echoes “I hear that! I hear that! But it’s in the wrong place now.” Lowe is heard saying “Check, check” as the 37-minute testing went on.
According to BusinessInsider, Beats 1 suffered a 30-minte downtime before the end of Tuesday, and that’s not cool of a streaming service that is being tagged as “Worldwide. Always on.”
Two Apple Store employees interviewed on Wednesday said they loved Apple’s choice of music on Beats 1, but ironically had to turn off the station after listening to just two tracks.
Walt Mossberg of Re/Code added that he simply found Apple Music “Rich, Robust — But Confusing.”
