Answer:

My Dear Apple e-mail I sent earlier this evening is below:


Dear Apple,


My first impression to Apple Music was decidedly positive after spending my lunch hour yesterday listening to music spun by Zane Lowe on Beats 1.

Unfortunately my subsequent experiences with Apple Music has revealed some not insignificant shortcomings in your new endeavor.


1. Elimination of iTunes Genius Mixes: I was terribly disappointed the learn you apparently have deleted my iTunes genius mixes. You may believe that the genius mixes are obsolete considering you have offered me the ability to stream Apple music over my iPhone data connection/wifi. However you would be mistaken; I highly valued my quite relevant genius mixes because I listen to music on my iPhone during my daily subterranean morning and evening commutes — commutes where the internet access (and Apple Music) is largely inaccessible. This is because I live and work on the isle of Manhattan and the tunnels within the New York City Subway system are not wired for internet access. So I ask your reinstate my iTunes genius mixes until ubiquitous subterranean New York City wireless internet access is available.


2. Apple Music User Interface is Confusing and Unintuitive: I found some difficulty navigating the new Apple Music application on my iPhone and apparently I am not alone. See Walt Mossberg among others: http://recode.net/2015/06/30/apple-music-first-look-rich-fluid-but-somewhat-conf using/

http://www.technologyreview.com/view/538981/apple-music-is-here-and-its-already- confusing-me/ and http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/11710283/Apple-Music-critics-review- clunky-fussy-confusing-and-flawed.html I won’t bore you by simply repeating what others have already more eloquently articulated.


In spite of my recent experience I (as well as my wife, my sister, my mother and millions of others) will continue to purchase Apple hardware. Likewise I will continue to buy and hold Apple stock. However with regards to Apple Music I will conclude with a quote by another gentleman whose words were more poignant than my own:


“Your work is ****"



Sincerely,


Jesse Brown

Dear Apple,


I use Genius mixes when on road trips through my Apple Play car stereo. I see the removal of this option and home sharing on IOS devices as a slap in the face and despicable ploy to promote your music service. I have my own music already, let me listen to it! I am balls deep into the Apple environment; AppleTV, 2 iPhones, MacMini, and a new Pioneer CarPlay receiver. However, I almost made the switch to android when I upgraded to iPhone 6 and dick moves like this will only further persuade me to consider jumping ship in the future. Stop giving us bloatware and taking away features and passing it off as an upgrade.

i just stumbled on this

maybe it's what you seek

When listening to a song you see the album art

2/3 down the screen in the right is a list icon

*-----

a close approximation


click on on it and the "up next" screen appears


tthere is no list icon next to the "now playing" song

but

there is a list icon next to songs in the "history" list above it


click on the list icon next to the song in the history list and one of the options is

"Create Genius Playlist"


i love Apple too

and

tthere new stuff can be frustrating

they need to simplify

its hard to make things simple


hope this helps.

It's on the same place as the Covers view when you turn your iPhone horizontal. GONE!!!


I'm starting to hate this update on the Music app the most I use it. It seems only designed to make people spend 9,99€ a month!

😁


Not joking at all. Putting the iPhone on landscape mode on the Music app showed all the covers of your library for you to browse and you can scroll and click on all of them to do a fast look on your library. It was the replacement on iOS7 from the CoverFlow and was great.


I've looked for a video on YouTube for you to see the feature. I only found one that shows a glitch, but you can see it working here: https://youtu.be/jDMqYLmTWk0


Now this feature and the Genius list had disappeared from the Music app on iOS8.4 😠


Regards!

I found something that in the ios 8.4 SDK Beta:


Home Sharing and Genius Mixes are not currently available.


https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/ios/releasenotes/General/RN-iOSSD K-8.4/


It looks like that they have not fixed it in the main version.

I hope that this will be available in ios9 again. I often use this Playlists when we are at home or anywhere else.


I have iTunes Match so that all my songs are on my Ipad, Iphones, ... so that i must not always sync them.


For me i will not have Apple Music.


As i say - hope they will fix it

Sorry for the loss of your Genius Mixes. I wouldn't waste much time troubleshooting the ordeal as I believe they won't be returning. The logic probably lies in the fact that they are software and algorithm generated so you can simply recreate them. I concur with you as I liked mine the way they were, if your using an iOS decide running 8.4, simple click the three small dots to access the menu. An option called "Create Genius Playlist" will allow you to create new Genius Playlists. Sorry they can't be replicated as it's the proverbial thing we endure when new software is released. Something gets lost.

Me to, me to, me to!


The more I use AM, the more I realize it's still in beta. Or the acutal beta users are not as the rest of us millions of Apple users...


I really want AM to be my choice of streaming music provider, but as it is now, I'll probably go back to Spotify.

Apple, you still have 2,8 months to do it correct!

I agree...thanks Apple! You ruined a perfectly good music experience with your bloatware thinly disguised as a music upgrade to try and force people on to your paid streaming service. Now that you're pushing bloatware you're no different than Android.
