Is it true that Mp3 players are harder to use compared to apple ipods?

Is it more confusing to download songs on MP3 players? People have told me that they think ipods are easier. And do you know any mp3 players that r about $50 dollars that work really well? I don't care if it doesn't have a touch screen, as long as it's easy to use and affordable/small ( like a shuffle)
