    "Spotify puts new releases right on the homepage and even features recommended new music based on my listening history. This and the charts make it really easy to see what has been released."

    "I have been using Shazam since it was first released to help me identify some of my new favorite songs on the radio. I really like how it has progressed to allowing me to match songs similar to the ones I like now. It also is somewhat helpful for album release dates but not as good as other apps. Overall it is great for recognizing songs though."

    "Pandora is an okay music service, but it has too many commercials for me. I'll stick to Youtube or spotify, where I can pick exactly which song I want."
