Hello,

I have apple music and I enjoy listening to stuff, but my two issues are 1) I would like more and longer customized playlists (ones that populate automatically based on what I listen to). I get these from Apple music, but they're like 25 songs long, and that gets used up quickly if I'm driving and skipping songs I don't want to hear. I'm a degenerate skipper. So invariably I'll hit the end of an album or playlist halfway through my 30 minute commute.
The bigger thing, and the real dealbreaker, is that since I joined apple music, they replaced my song files with mis-matched "cloud" versions of my songs, and others have disappeared (no iCloud streaming rights). If I could have both apple music and my own music files on the phone (and not streamed), I could deal. but it seems like perhaps I cannot.
I'm not interested in a "radio" type app necessarily; I would want that (with unlimited skipping), but I also want to search for and play a specific song, or add it to my playlists. I have Prime, I think I paid for Pandora in the past, I have Sirius. I dunno. thoughts?
I had heard a rumor that apple was going to fix the problem of their music service breaking my music files, but I haven't seen anything about this myself.

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

It's also a lot like http://diversitytomorrow.com/thread/2674/0/

Not hard to notice.

For some reason the other 3 of the persons 5 posts (all new posts) are already gone.

They look like "fake problems" whose only purpose is to get the final link into the forum.
