This is the scoop I was able to obtain both pros and cons for iTunes Radio.

 

Pros: iTunes Radio allows its users to share there music library from all of their synced devices. This save a lot of time because user wont have to sync all of their devices individually. 

 

Cons: iTunes will begin to shut other online radio's down. iTunes radio is automaticly installed into all apple devices which makes it extremely easy for user to access. Once iTunes radio dominates the online radio scene many people will be out of a job because other radio companies will go bankrupt.

In regards to this article, iTunes Radio, Pandora & Spofity are in competion and they also share three of the same holders such as, University, Warner and Sony. A downfall with the iTunes radio is that only iPhone, iPads, & Mac's have access to it. If you are a Android holder you can only use Pandora and Spofity. Meanwhile, iPhone holders do use Pandora and Spofity but not that iTunes Radio has been release the chances of them using those radio stations again are a 50/50 chance. When iTunes Radio release their hits were 200 million while Pandora is at 72.1 million and Spofity is around 55 million. 

 

Pros: New feature created into the apple world that is a great way to buy songs and advertise them on social medias.

 

Cons: If you are an Andriod holder you cannot use iTunes Radio on your smartphone.
