"HOME.HERO.HEADING" pretty good headline ;)
also digging the call to action "base.header.sign-up"
... in the US.
Edit: I mean to comment on the main thread, sorry.
Are they drunk?
I'm skeptical given the influx of "DR DRE IS MY HERO" and "BEATS BY DR DRE HAVE THE BEST SOUND" this is bound to have but, upon installing the iOS app, I'm actually quite impressed by the execution. I'm not judging the catalog or audio quality, but the general UX is quite pleasing, aside from a few glitches that appear to stem from a bit of a cross-platform design language… Not sure it would ever replace Spotify for me, though, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for it… :)
I thought I was on Behance for a second
I'm the only one getting placeholders all around the page?

The interface of their apps en website looks nice.
I like how they ask you about your preferences. Tap what you like, double tap what you love, tap & hold what you hate.
I don't like how it keeps trying to take me through the process multiple times.
Same thing is happening to me. I've opened the app three separate times throughout the day; I was asked to configure my preferences on every occasion.
At first glance, it looks nice.
As someone who's used Rdio since launch, Spotify for months, and Google Play for 90 days- I'm not sure they're even done with the service. Seriously, so bad.
If the other subscription services never existed, this thing would be dope. As it stands now, I'm not sure if
I'm liking the design, not to happy about how its going to debit my AT&T account after 90 days
Didn't get why it's better than the competitors in this space. Anyone did?
Playlists are curated by actual people, not algorithms. Also not a free service, so artists get more money in return. Artists (both mainstream and independent) get paid equally per stream.
So it's Rdio with fewer features and a worse design?
A lot of people share their Spotify playlists. Don't you create your own playlists? Or you mean the "Related artist" listing? I do not use neither Spotify or Rdio, for the record.
Sure, people share their playlists, but it's hard to find those people. On other services, if you select a playlist like "Workday - Ambient," then you get music that matches things like ... calming, soothing, etc.
From what I've read, Beats uses actual people to create the lists. And by people it's folks from Pitchfork, XXL, Riff, Power 106, etc. You can watch this interview: http://www.theverge.com/2014/1/21/5325766/interview-with-beats-music-ceo-ian-rogers-video
Yeah, but is that worth switching for?
"A NEW MUSIC SERVICE CURATED BY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE MUSIC IS EMOTION AND LIFE."
I was looking forward to trying this, but the lack of a desktop app or even a web interface is a deal breaker for me.
There's a web interface.
I was using it earlier, but apparently now they're straight-up blocking you from logging into the web app. Damn. :(
I'm sure the code is hot out of the oven, and will probably be better soon.
Works for me. Web app is at http://listen.beatsmusic.com/
Seriously? I get a 404 on that link. Maybe I'm special.
it's back up again. at least for me.
Ya, same for me as well.
