    "All around great app, the interface works, it intuitive, and I understood how it worked within seconds of opening it. My one request is the ability to name songs, albums, and artists along with setting the photos for the songs. "

    "I tried this and could never get the process running. When songs did transfer it always missed some of them, seemed ot be the same ones everytime. Not sure if it is due to format licensing or something i did. Would not recommend, there are easier options out there."

    "Amazon Music is a decent iOS app for streaming music from cloud storage. I think Amazon was already on the ball with their cloud storage services and this app just dovetails nicely into it. I can always easily get to the music I want, even if the interface can seem a little busy."

    "Beyond the logo and allowing access to a major amount of music, current Napster has little in common with its early on peer-to-peer origins. However, there are over 40 million songs available which I find to be an enormous amount of music. Modern day, legal and legit Napster offers two subscription plans: Napster Unlimited and Napster Unlimited with Mobile. "
