Apple Music not playing nicely
[update 16/8/15] This issue now seems to be resolved in iTunes 188.8.131.52
21 Jul 2015
Screensleeves, the album art screensaver for Mac, is currently having trouble displaying the artwork and track details when the new streaming service (Apple Music) is being used.
Applescript (the sensible way for applications to talk to each other) is often overlooked - there are ongoing problems with Spotify, although it's been possible to work around most of these. But it's particularly disappointing when Apple themselves neglect their own scripting interface.
iTunes' 'current track' seems broken when it comes to the new music service as developers of other apps have reported.
I hope that this is 'teething trouble' with the new service and can only suggest installing updates when they're available.
