comment Can I use use one Apple ID for Apple Music and another for iTunes & App Store?
You lost at me at "shared drive" and I started shaking at "iTunes". :) I'm hoping for a zero maintenance iOS only solution. I'm very lazy.

Yeah, maybe you're right. I hadn't even realized I was dismissing that option until I thought it thru. The thing is you can have multiple Apple IDs logged in at the same time for other services. There's three logins: iTunes & App Store, iCloud, and FaceTime, and they can all be different from each other. It feels like Podcasts and Apple Music preferences should be based on iCloud but, alas, it is not.

Because as near as I can tell, there is just one login field, "iTunes & App Store", and that determines both the iTunes purchase identity and the Apple Music preference identity. So the only way to use one ID for purchasing, and the other for Apple Music, is if you logout/login/logout every single time you want to make a purchase. I guess I'm excluding that option out of hand, as too much of a pain.

What you describe is a way that I can share music and app purchases using a shared Apple ID. I know that. That's the effect I get by using a shared Apple ID to login to "iTunes & App Store". But my question is about Apple Music, the new streaming service. I don't want to use a shared ID for that, because I don't want preference and playlist information to be shared. Or am I confused? (BTW, the reason I'm trying to avoid Family Sharing is because it doesn't let you share certain apps or any in-app purchases.)

comment Can I share HBO Now or Netflix while using iCloud Family Sharing?
Ah, looks like it does... So you can pay for a subscription with an AppleID, but your HBO now subscription identity is separate from the payment identity...

comment Can I share HBO Now or Netflix while using iCloud Family Sharing?
Thanks. But I'm still a bit puzzled. Let's take HBO Now for example. If I subscribe to HBO Now via the iTunes Store using the HBO Now app (not using the HBO now website), then I am authorizing the payment using my AppleID/password, which I used to login to the iTunes Store. But someone else, say my wife, will be using a different AppleID on her device, so how can she use the subcription. Does the HBO Now app generate a separate user/pass pair, that we can share?

comment Download entire iTunes purchase history as CSV file
Yup, that will work for figuring out the total spend. But only iTunes (only Apple...) can provide the per purchase information needed to identify in-app purchases and to distinguish music from app purchases. Seems like the only way is screen scraping, which is another way of saying I'm out of luck...

Yes. I want to figure out how much money I've been spending monthly since 2007 on this stuff. Second, I want to inventory all purchases I've made that will not be shareable via iCloud family sharing, which excludes in-app purchases and non-shareable apps among other things.

comment Does iTunes Match work with iOS8 Family Sharing?
That link really is a great description of how to do things before iTunes Family Sharing. But then you don't get the benefits of iTunes Family Sharing. These are streamlined photo-sharing, calendar-sharing, and location-sharing; discounted group price on Apple Music; and parental restrictions on some family members' purchases. This might be the right choice. The downside of family sharing is, I think, that it does not allow as comprehensive a sharing of purchases as you get with a shared iTunes AppleID.
