      very much agreed, too much wordiness and a lot of duplicate sentences… I gave up on figuring out how to get my fix from this website.

    if there is an answer in this response, it is hidden inside a lot of extreme wordiness and repeated sentences. Bottom Line Up Front is the best resolution comments you can make and it appears that the answer is after you read a lot of unnecessary words.

    What Lyle said – way too many words. Couldn’t tell if the writer was talking about the app or the website. Poorly written, please find other work, and remove this site from the web.

    useless and incorrect. none of these options are available on an old, early gen iOS… of course the only reason I keep that dinosaur around is to listen to music and sometimes for Netflix, but there is absolutely NO WAY to undo an accidental “unlike” in that apps interface. Shame — ’cause I take my music listening channels seriously.
