@fubini Lastly, if you use iTunes for your own music (iTunes Match etc), you will either love or hate how Apple mashes the two together. @fubini That said, Spotify is better for social - list sharing, editing playlists as a group, etc. Music selection about equal. @fubini I went from Rdio to Beats & stuck through to Apple.
