    If you are talking about iTunes Match - I believe that you have to turn it off in order to delete a song. I don't use it but I think that's what I have read.

     

    the typical way to delete a song is to swipe across the song in the songs tab of the music app and the red delete button pops up.

    If you mean iTunes Match, they are not actually on the iPad unless you have downloaded them.

     

    Open the Settings app > Music. Turn Show all Music off. thnis will show only the tracks you have actually download.

     

    To actually delete a track (song) that is downloaded: Open the Music app. Select Songs from the menu. Swipe on a track (to the left). tap Delete.

     

    To delete a album: Select Albums from teh menu. Tap and hold on the album icon. Tap the X.

    You can delete a track or album with iTunes Match On (and showing all tracks), but only those that are actually on the iPad (which from the Album view can be a challenge to figure out   )

    When you use iTunes Match on an iDevice - if you have listened to that song on the device - it is downloaded to the device - correct? iTunes Match does not stream to an iDevice does it? It downloads the song does it not?

    Yes, it does, but only if you have played it, or elected to download it.(actually if not already on teh device, it will stream as it downloads.

     

    The exception is AppleTV. It only streams.
