One of Beats' biggest strengths is that the app learns from your musical tastes to recommend new artists, albums, and playlists. The Just for You screen, above, shows all your personalized suggestions.

If you don't really know who or want you want to listen to, but just want some tunes for your backyard BBQ or workout session, The Sentence will help you out. Just tell the app a little about your location and mood, and it creates a playlist for you.

Once you start playing a track, you can control playback with the screen above. You can pause, play, and skip the song, but also tell the app if you like it or not. That helps Beats understand your preferences and make better suggestions the more you rate music.

For each track and album, you can also add that music to your personal library, add it to a new or existing playlist, or download it to your device for offline listening.

Your library is where you can keep songs and albums you like, so that you can play them whenever you want. Adding music to your library does not make it available offline.
