Navigation on mobile devices

As far as interface goes, the iOS version is very similar to the Android version. One of the only differences is that the Android app lets you swipe between screens, while the iOS app (shown here) only gives you buttons to let you jump around.

Subscription required

Xbox Music requires an Xbox Music Pass to use. Unlike Spotify, this app doesn't offer any functionality for nonsubscribers.

Attractive interface

With its clean lines and sleek sliding menu on the left, Xbox Music has the same modern feel of other Microsoft-made apps.

Search for an artist, and Xbox Music will give you a photo, albums, songs, and even a bio.

Add to...

With either a long-press or a tap on a menu button, you can add songs to playlists or collections. Unfortunately, doing so takes you to an Add screen, when a simple inline "+" button would probably work better.

No radio for Android

With the iOS version of Xbox Music, you can create a radio station based on an artist. As of now, this feature is missing from the Android version.
