    I may get it just to convert music I've downloaded for free and ripped from CD's so I can get the iTunes type quality. It's really the only reason I'd pay for it once.

    Awful service! I'd rather spend the $25.

    See how long it takes to upload your music library.

    Probably. I'll never know, though. I have about 10,000 songs that'll probably take weeks to upload on there.

    For $25 I can upload my music 1000 x's quicker than two nights. I'm part of the caffeinated society that wants things done quickly.

    Yeah I would rather have the $25 to spend on coffee. I am pretty bad when it comes to wanting things yesterday but I am willing to give the free app a chance. I don't have that many songs anyway.

    I've had google music since it was beta, it's always been glitchy.

    Today, I gave it another try with the public release. I tried to upload a playlist of 40 songs, it took over an hour, then gave me an error saying 11 couldn't be uploaded. I clicked to see which ones and NONE of the 11 are even in the playlist it was uploading!!

    I downloaded the music I had on there, over 500 songs, and put them in iTunes. It matched what it could, uploaded the others and was done in about 15 minutes!

    I can have something free that I've always found to be a PIA, or pay $25 for something that works....I love iTunes Match.

    When it's in the cloud, you can add music to your phone anywhere. You don't have to be on the same wifi network, or hooked to your computer.

    I was considering buying Match, only because I thought Google Music played at 128 kbps. After learning today that it supports 320 kbps, I'll definitely be passing on iTunes Match. The majority of my music is already at 256 kbps + anyways. Plus you can use GMusic on both iOS and Android. I don't think you can use Match on Android.

    Far too limited and $10 month > $25 a year.

    But I agree with his point if you have to download the music to play it why not just load it on your phone to begin with much reason why google music is a better choice

    I still have to disagree. Google music was horrid, when I tried it.

    As a music freak, what I want to listen to may change, at any time, so I like having it all available, from everywhere and anywhere.

    i have 2700+ tracks that are the top 100 of billboard 1980-2010 or so (i made the list myself). i know those wont "match" but i dont want to upload 2700+ tracks either. is there an option not to sync them? if i retag them and put the right album name i got them from will it match on the iTunes servers? some of them are bad quality so i would love to get them at 256.

    I tried it for a month and liked it. But with my different musical tastes it was just too much work to set
    things into offline mode. Felt like a lot of work. Great app though.

    Just not sure that iTunes Match is worth the price. If I download my music and add it to iTunes, I just manually add the songs details. No biggies. I can see how this would be great for people who download/compose a lot.
