Apple Music was officially released in September 2015. In spite of its glowing appearance, Apple Music still faces many challenges. Nowadays, streaming music market is dominated by its competitors Spotify, Pandora, Rdio and so on. Spotify, especially, has been leading market all the time. As Apple Music grows up gradually, it becomes an important part of the music world. Thus, it is necessary to have a comparison on Spotify and Apple Music. In this article, we focus on their UI(user interface).
Spotify directly display songs/albums/artists. But in order to view details, users always need to click. Apple Music displays the music contents directly. But it will be better if RECENTLY ADDED can be turned off.
Apple Music loses in search. Spotify provides instant result, which means that users can find the music they want without typing the full names of songs and albums. In Spotify, clicking the result will play the music directly. Apple music only provides recommendations. Click them and you can look for more music. But if you want to listen, give another click.
Although it takes one more click to see the search result in Apple Music, Apple Music has a better layout. Both apps divide the search results into results/songs/others. However, Apple Music classifies more explicit.
Both apps have a similar interface. Spotify provides a same color interface for all singer, which Apple Music will adapt the singer's picture. What' s more, Spotify offer numbers showing how many times a songs has been played.
Apple Music adapts the humanized edit playlist form Beats Music. But Spotify's performance is also not bad. Apple music always recommends songs that are very fit for users.
Spotify has a very nice Playing interface. Except for play control, Spotify provides four simple functions, including Random, Repeat, Save and More. Apple has lots of function buttons, which seems a little messy. Spotify puts album names in the bottom of screen. Apple Music uses a larger size of album cover. But cutting of the cover is not so good.
Apple Music and Spotify are both the popular stream music providers all over the world. But due to the proctection of digital right management(DRM), they are limited in using to some extends. For example, Apple Music can not support Windows Phone(Apple Music for Adnroid is also not as functional as it behaves in iOS). And Spotify only supports online listening, which puts a request for network quality.Thus, there come Sidify Apple Music Converter and Sidify Spotify Converter, which allow people use Apple Music and Spotify more freely.
