Speaking of getting frustrated by Apple software, Joe Rosensteel is frustrated by the iOS Music app in a whole bunch of ways. But what’s interesting is what happens next—namely, he tries the Amazon Music app for iOS.
Amazon is routinely criticized for their grotesque, and difficult-to-use software, but comparing Apple’s and Amazon’s music apps is like night and day. How did Amazon manage to out-Apple Apple on Apple’s own platform? The application is not only slick, but it’s considerate.
It’s interesting to see how Amazon’s approach differs from Apple’s.
