  1. A really terrible application with bugs they refuse to fix. About one-third of the time it will not open up and display my DOWNLOADED music to play unless I log in (email address and PW and Internet connection). The application opens up with a large black window, where my only option is to connect to my Amazon account! I’d, of course, expect this for music in the Amazon cloud, but not for music already on my computer. I’ve talked to Amazon reps on the telephone and sent emails, but they just won’t fix their bug. I love Amazon, but this is a worthless product that they should be ashamed of! (My computer is a MacBook Pro with all the latest OS downloads)

  2. If you haven’t updated to the new “blue” version, DON’T! [edit: but apparently that’s not an option; all the recent reviews say the new version is shoved down to them automatically now, so Amazon can now alienate their customers without you even having to ask!] The previous version was finally a halfway decent version, and now Amazon has messed it up again. This version crashes right and left, that is when it’s not hanging. The user interface is awful – clunky, nonintuitive, and so slow. I get the impression that the only reason they rolled out the new version is to push their new subscription service, because for uploading your own music to the Amazon cloud or listening to your own music, this version is downright terrible. I would PAY to get the old version back! And based on the other review, so would many others.Important update I’m putting at the top of all my previous updates. Finally, version 6.1.4.1205 is GREAT!!! Uploads are working flawlessly. Snappy, reliable interface – controls, menus, buttons, pulldowns, file lists, everything works instantly no matter what else is going on. It took a year of putting up with literally a horrible piece of barely or not working software, but suddenly it’s very good! Changing from 1 star to 5 – it’s that good (decided not to penalize for past failures because this one is so good). Leaving the whole sordid history below though.Edit: A week later and it just gets worse and worse. It just sits there “Loading Your Songs” and can’t do anything but cancel, and repeat. Reinstalled several times, no luck. You would think Amazon would have some competent programmers and testers – evidently not!And Amazon, it’s very misleading to use ratings from years ago for this new piece of junk. Reset the ratings to just cover the new release and it would drop from 4.5 stars to 1!Update: After a couple of updates to version 5.1.0.1590.5.1.0.427, it’s a lot more stable, in that it doesn’t hang or crash quite so often. It’s still a horrible user interface and user experience, and SLOW. Menu selections and such usually take many, many seconds. Hover bubbles stick around for random (long) lengths of time, covering up data and controls. Things jump around as you move the mouse around or click items (I just lover interfaces that move a button away from your cursor just as you reach for it!), and there’s no way to know what’s going on if you upload your own music. Just click, wait, and hope. Just an awful interface compared to the previous (pre-blue) release.Update: 11/24/1016 Update to 5.2.2.1608.5.2.2.449 today is a setback. Comes up maybe 1 out of 10 tries. UI is still the same clunky mess, but now it’s way slower than previous versions, and hangs unresponsive for minutes at a time. All I want to do is upload my own music to Amazon’s cloud, and this program is terrible at it. When it does work, you have no idea if it is or not. Just walk away for a few hours, come back, try again and again until it tells you “those are already uploaded”. Seriously, Amazon is obviously using us as involuntary beta testers – no pre-beta, it’s that bad. I expected so much more Amazon. This is astonishingly bad They should stop selling their cloud music storage service until they have a program that lets you actually reliably use it!Update 07/07/2017: Hallelujah! Newest update 5.6.0.1081 from a few days ago finally successfully uploads my music to the cloud! No crashes, no hangs. I’ve pushed it hard and have uploaded thousands of tracks in the last few days. Still has a few rough edges, like results messages usually don’t have correct counts or correct error descriptions, but it finally does what it needs to since they replaced the previously working version with this one almost a year ago.Update 09/17/2017: We’ll, that was good while it lasted. As of a few days ago, every single attempt I make to upload, whether one track at a time, an album at a time, or multiple albums at a time, I get “No songs were added to your upload queue”. Deleted, rebooted, and updated to the latest, 6.0.0.1152, and it’s back to the old perpetual “Loading your music” screen. Canceled that after 24 hours, restart, and it comes right up. But still get “No files were added to your upload queue”, whether dragging to the app or using the app’s Upload button to select files.It is completely useless again for uploading my music to the Amazon cloud. Come on Amazon, it’s been a year since since you released this piece of garbage to the public. You should be ashamed of yourselves.atUpdate 10/29/2017: Well, it’s been a year since Amazon killed its great uploading program and forced this truly awful software on those of us who want to upload our own music to the Amazon cloud library that we pay for. The current version works for the most part. It still hangs on startup from time to time, but killing it and restarting it fixes it most of the time. If not, reinstalling usually does. When it does work, the file list usually isn’t updated on the PC screen, so you can either guess or hope that your files were uploaded, or upload them again to be sure. Sometimes the second uploading will tell you they were uploaded, and sometimes it just doesn’t say anything. Sometimes it gets into a state where it says “uploading” forever. Either cancel and restart, or reinstall to clear that, depending on your luck. Still unbelievable that Amazon would want its name on this awful software.

  3. C’mon Amazon. You can do better than this. The blue app is simply awful.Takes forever to load music, shuts down randomly. Of virtually no use. I love the Amazon Music service, but this upgrade is most definitely a serious downgrade. I have taken to using other apps which are more user friendly, such as Pandora and Spotify. I’ll check back periodically to see if this app has been fixed, but until them, I’m out. Jeff Bezos- are you listening to your customers?

  4. I’ve been using the Amazon Music App for PC for as long as I’ve had Prime. The latest update that I downloaded a couple of days ago ( 10/25/16) does not work. It installs, asks for user ID & password, then disappears within a few seconds. I’ve uninstalled it and tried again with the same results. Also tried a third time after a Widows 10 Cumulative Update (10/27/16). I hope the software is fixed very soon and possibly that those who’ve downloaded it can be notified to update, or have Amazon do an automatic update of the software.

  5. I subscribe to amazon cloud music service, which I use as a music locker. This program is the only way to upload tracks to the cloud but Amazon broke this program when they upgraded in mid-Oct to coincide with their new streaming service. It constantly freezes or crashes while uploading, often requiring reinstallation, which involves trashing all the associated library files. Furthermore, I keep my music library on an external drive – the program will not load if the drive is connected, so I have first to copy any files I want to upload to my internal hard drive.I have contacted amazon customer service who assured me that the problem was fixed but clearly not for me or other customers. Not “building the Earth’s most customer-centric company”I have been a long time amazon customer (I have a Prime membership under another account) but this is the tipping point with this company. Since mid-Oct, I have already shifted all my online purchases to other vendors (strongly recommend Bull Moose, a Maine-based company, for music). I have also starting uploading my music to Google, which offers a free music locker service and uploading that works! I will also cancel my Prime account.

  6. In Prime Membership, you get access to Music, Video, Books, 2-day shipping, early access to deals, etc. You can set up a “Household account” to add members of your (get this) household! I know, it was a really creative way to market that feature. Anyway, the members of the household accounts are a little more limited in their perks though. Of course, you can’t find that information without digging so deep into the help pages, with the assistance of a customer service operator! I spent an hour with a very frustrated CSR, that’s how deeply buried the information I’m about to give you is! You can thank me later, or never. Either way, I’m good with it.Household Prime Members aren’t “really Prime members.” This was the statement from the beginning of that fateful conversation. Needless to say, that didn’t start us on the right foot. Had she been able to back that up with a link so I could see what she meant, it probably would have been a better time for both of us. But she couldn’t. She had no idea where to find supporting exclusions anywhere on Amazon.com, and I had already scoured the site before I called. I believe it took a supervisor to actually locate a place that addressed the situation.So, back to the beginning… I was trying to download a Kindle book through one of their hidden gems (Kindle First – You can get a new release a month before other NON-Prime members for free. Only one book per month though, so don’t plan on breaking the bank.) I had previously downloaded one, but it wouldn’t let me for the second month. That was the reason for my call. After being told I don’t really count, that this is just how it is, and finally being shown where the information is hidden, I was irritated. (Like I said, deep inside the help section through several innocuous buttons you don’t really notice are even there or where they will take you…)While on the secret pages of “Help”, I also read that Household members don’t get Amazon Music free like real members do either.So my review of the app is that “it looks pretty…” because I couldn’t do anything with it! It was taken off the computer immediately.I thought they maybe say would say something about the other feature I wasn’t entitled to, but she just wanted to get me off the phone, I think!You’re welcome.

  7. Great program and well worth the money. You can do as many wills as you like and the trust part outlines everything for you. Walks even a novice through the process of setting up a will or trust in a few easy steps. This is my 3rd quicken wills program I have owned and made wills with. I am now setting up a trust for all of my property to keep things out of probate for the ease of my kids. I have had to update my will throughout the years as others pass away and new ones are born and Quicken has saved me thousands while giving us peace of mind. We have also wasted money on other programs that promise to do the same thing but none are near as good as Quicken in all of the small details that they seem to catch.

  8. For years I had used the simpler predecessor to this product, but it was written for an earlier version of Windows and no longer works. So I tried this new one. It installed easily and does the job. Prepared my new will in a jiffy. And my son did his as well. This one has more reference material and more depth than the previous version, but seems to lack the “save in Word” capability that would make it even easier to make modest changes.

  9. I was wanting to get my will in order and have heard god things about Quicken WillMaker so I ordered it. After getting the program I installed it and immediately downloaded the updates. The program guides you through the idiosyncrasies of making a will specific for the state you live in. I am very pleased with the program and would recommend it to anyone who is actively looking to write their will.
