iTunes Match is $25/year and now removes commercials on iTunes Radio. Pandora One costs $36/year to remove commercials. Yep, I cancelled my Pandora One account since I’m already an iTunes Match subscriber.
Now to dig in a bit deeper into iTunes Radio’s settings. While a radio station is playing, tap the circled “i” above the album art. From there you can tune the station between “hits”, “variety”, or “discovery”. This setting is specific to the current station. You can also allow explicit tracks, which is an iTunes Radio-wide setting.
While a song is playing you can tap the star to further customize the station with your personal taste.
What radio app do you prefer? Is the newiTunes Radio enough to sway you?
