Now onto the performance, much like was stated in the recent Apple keynote announcing the icoud service, the uploaded process is going to take more than 3 days at the current rate. I began the upload process at 11:30 AM, at 1,988 files were uploaded, minus the 160 that were already present based on music preference.
There are currently only two methods of streaming your music, through the web browser or through the Android application. Since I have multiple iOS devices, Android is not an option. The music streaming service seems to work pretty well so far. There are multiple options for playing albums, single songs, shuffling all, repeating. Once expected feature is the ability to move forward to the next song or back to the previous song by clicking the arrows on your keyboard. There are auto playlists, instant mixes, and playlists. I have found that playlists get imported automatically from your iTunes account.
There is a search function that allows you to locate files in your library. So far it works pretty well. Another interesting fact is that the number of times a file has been played, even from your iTunes account. There is also the ability to New and Recent, Songs, Artists, Albums and Genres.
The following is an example of the preferences pane:
I will provide an update soon, once all the files have been updated and I have had an opportunity to explore the features in a little more depth.
