Beats Music: Free to download, requires $10 monthly membership (Requires iOS 6 or later) Rated 12+
Beats' new music streaming service for iOS, Android and Window devices is for music lovers who don't mind paying $10 a month instead of listening to ads. Beats Music biggest selling point is its recommendation engine comprised of real people, and its fill in the "Sentence" feature that allows users to get suggestions based on what they're doing and who they're with. The Sentence has already spun a meme where users share their most ridiculous answers to the fill in the blank option: "I'm ___ & feel like ___ with ___ to ___".
The Beats Music app is free to download but requires a $10 monthly membership fee after a 7 day free trial.App Store Link
