Hands on with iTunes Match
Posted 14 November 2011 - 03:11 PM
I've been using AudioGalaxy for awhile now. So, how does iTunes Match compare to streaming apps like AudioGalaxy? One obvious difference is that AudioGalaxy requires you to leave your home computer on to stream to your device, but it is also free.

Podcasts don't sync through iCloud, but a change in the 10.5.1 version of iTunes means that playlists that contain any podcasts will no longer sync to your iOS device. The podcasts themselves still sync, but are now only available in the 'Podcasts' section of the iOS music app.

From your description about preparing for a trip, I wonder why turning Airplane mode on doesn't disable Show All Music automatically. Are you sure it doesn't?
Also since virtually every article before the launch that described iTunes Match talked about the "piracy forgiveness" angle, I'm wondering what we know now. Seems like there are problems with that. I've looked at the Terms and Conditions and they aren't clear. If you can't prevent Apple from uploading any songs it doesn't find matches for, and Apple doesn't promise it won't let the RIAA do hash matching on all the uploaded songs, are you sure there isn't a hole here where you could be sued after enabling iTunes Match?
