    Let's just say that it wasn't available after 5 seconds like they promised, but it was within a couple minutes.

    I was playing it while Tim and Bono were still chatting on stage.

    Just go to albums in the music app and search for it, then download it from iCloud.

    Likewise. It was not in my Library, but it was showing in "purchased" however there was no option except "Download all" which didn't work. The servers would be getting hammered. I'm going to wait a day or two.

    I watched the keynote, and when it said it was available, i opened up iTunes, and it was there in my music library, with the little iCloud download icon, clicked on it, downloaded it, played it, deleted it...

    Finally showed up in my purchased tracks in the store app when I went to the 'recent purchases' bit and let me click on the download link there.

    On first listen i think it will join all the post-Pop albums in the pile of 'listened-to-once'.

    I've been listening to the album all day and I like, but I should add I have always been a U2 fan.

    I like this album. I'd have bought it anyway. Superb it's free. I guess they want us to buy a Product (Red) iPhone cover now. Yeah ok then.

    Mine still isn't showing up. Not in purchase history and not anywhere else.

    (but if I go into the album it's marked purchased)

    Go to the iTunes store, click on the Purchased tab on the right hand side, and it should be there. Then click to download.

    I have listened to this album in full about 10 times now. It will make an awesome tour. New favourite track 'California (There is no end to love)'.
