When suffering using Android for a few months, the worst Android app I used was Apple Music. Such a terrible, buggy, God awful app. Beta my toosh, that should not have been released. It's the most buggy Apple software I have used on any operating system.

It's still even buggy on iOS, memory and cpu hog, crashes my phone...
Disabling Apple Music completely on my iPhone has stopped the issues though :)

This is welcome, and great for competition (as an Android user). I will stick with Music All Access for now because it also gives me YouTube Red. EDIT: forgot to mention I love being able to use Google Music (and YouTube) with Chromecast, I have an Apple TV but only on one TV whereas Chromecast is so cheap I have it on multiple screens

I just think once Apple Music gets a redesign of it's user interface, many more people would be ready to jump on board. Hopefully this will be the main focus soon. Content wise (now also on Android) it's already hard to beat.
