    I find it useful, because it basically keeps my phone and my laptop (my main pc) in sync without me ever having to do anything. (such as plug the phone into the laptop and take the sync manually)

    Most on /. won't like the idea of living in Apple's ecosystem, but if you're using an iPhone anyway it's convenient.

    First, the match part replaced bunch of crappy rips with their higher-quality stuff, and I'm not just talking about bit rates. A lot of rips out there just sound bad, and the ones I did from vinyl have the obligatory vinyl noise - the match is clean.

    Second, I have way more music than fits on my iPhone. Having the stuff in the cloud solves that problem very nicely.

    Third, it just works the way it should - stuff I buy or "acquire" on one device is automagically available on all of my other devices. Makes the notion of doing syncs - wirelessly or not - seem quaint.

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
