    "This app is only good if you are into Hip Hop, Electronic or Reggae. It's doesn't have any other kind of music so forget it if you want something else. I was looking for a free app to discover unknown musical talent from people that aren't produced by anyone else. This app is more about professionally done music in the categories I already listed. Not what I was looking for at all."

    "This is an amazing app for music lovers to keep up with their artist but as far as it being a best website for a singer to get noticed, I'm not so sure if this would be the app for them. It is mostly for the fans to find out when a concert is so that tickets can be bought."

    "The sound quality is amazing. The app does get frozen sometimes and I have to reload it. It isn't as popular as some other apps, but maybe it will gain momentum. "

    "I don't know who else uses iTunes other than apple users because the app is so bloated. Sometimes when i'm downloading songs the whole thing freezes up on me for no reason where i'd have to restart the entire computer. For syncing my phone and as a media player its superior though but only the downloading can be an issue at times. "

    "the Last FM community has been gnashing its teeth over the latest itunes update, which moves it to 64-bit and renders it impossible to scrobble to last fm from via its itu Last FM is a music database website with desktop clients and plug-ins that enables you to consolidate your play counts from iTunes, windows media player, Spottily etc into one place. It’s clearly been struggling recently to sustain itself and the iTunes issues shows no signs of being fixed anytime soon though there are unofficial work-around in the forums."
