V.143 - Best App
This app is by far the best music service I’ve ever used. (Music platforms I’ve used premium for: SoundCloud, Apple Music) Out of all of the platforms I’ve used, this one trumps all of them by having the greatest variety of songs. Literally all of my music is on here, including covers, nightcore, pop, rock, indie, alternative, rap, and foreign genres like kpop and jpop. It also has the lyrics automatically displayed and as someone who likes to sing and sometimes read for better lyrics comprehension, this is a great feature to have! Of course I have premium but I’ve used the free version for a considerable amount of time, and I can say that it’s definitely worth it to get premium for no ads, unlimited skips, and infinite playlist customization. I love listening to playlists I’ve created on this app! I have over 20 of them so far. This feature is awesome; you can share playlists with friends (and even collaborate with them on playlists too!), put a custom cover image, add a description, and add whatever songs you want. I like this feature because then I don’t have to manually change songs every time one ends. The fact that you can download songs is great too, and this app works on very low bandwidth so if you’re on a plane that offers wifi you can listen without having to worry. Overall I’d say if you’re considering going premium, this app is a must have! But if you want the free version, just know you’ll have limited control over what you play and when you play it.
Intense ligma - Beat app but...
I personally love this app but the only part I very much do not like about it is that it will not let you skip songs and now for some reason it will not let me start the song over again this is a very nice app but I would like if it improved it says I have to get premium and I am broke right now LOL and I never really see myself getting premium but I think that’s something that they really have to change about this app it’s very much annoying and some songs will have very bad words and then I won’t be able to skip them because I will have my younger brother near me and I will see songs on my Play list and I will try to reading it but it won’t let me and I very much do not like that too and I do not mind all the ads but they are very long and people get annoyed by them and I have nothing to do about it so that something annoying with it too that’s not a big issue but it’s an issue that I very much don’t like about this app but still I definitely would prefer everybody to get this app which is probably needs to be updated but in conclusion I think this is a very nice app but I would definitely keep it has tons of music on here and that’s something that is awesome about it too and you can create playlist and more P.S thanks for reading this.
GoldenShadow127 - It keeps stopping
A problem I frequently have is that when listening to my music, the songs will randomly stop playing and when I go to hit play again, the app restarts. Sometimes admittedly, it’s just because my app needs updated, but it will also do that completely randomly at times. What is with that? I’ll continue playing my music again, and not only will the song restart, but it also cuts off again but even earlier than it did before. It’s honestly extremely annoying and very difficult to deal with when I’m working either at home or at my job. Nine times out of ten, I’d have to close the app completely, and wait thirty to ninety minutes before my music will play uninterrupted again. It’s incredibly frustrating, especially since all I want is to play some music.
Another thing is six skips per hour? Really? That’s so incredibly annoying, and it makes it worse when I’m wasting all my skips on the stupid suggested tracks you give me. I don’t want to listen to that!? If you absolutely HAVE to put something in, play more of the same artist at least. It’s so annoying to only have six skips and waste them all on music that I never wanted to hear in the first place. The worst part is, even if I go to a different playlist and come back, it continues playing the suggested track. I don’t want it! On that note, I also don’t want the extra songs you put in my playlists. I take one track off, another gets added. If I wanted that song in my playlist, I’d put it there.
Strwvrryle - bluetooth/wired connection to car, library format
I always connect to my scion ia via bluetooth, sometimes I plug the wire in so that it can charge while I drive, and for some reason, like half the time, buttons like "like" or "add to playlist" or "make playlist private" or "delete playlist" etc just do NOT work at all. I click and theres no visual feedback. I check and the song was not liked and the plaulist was not deleted. Sometimes it marks songs as "liked" and I never liked it before. This is stupid. Sometimes I just want to park and listen to music and want to use those features at the same time and I can't for no apparent reason. Please fix it. It's frustrating and also makes me feel crazy bc I thought I liked a song or added to a playlist and turns out it just never went through. Or I hit add to playlist and it actually does do it, BUT gives me no visual feedback or confirmation, doesn't ask me "this song is already in the playlist", nothing. So yeah, great app but some features don't work in my car.
Also I HATE that you made the Library tab include everything and I have to hit "Playlist" to filter my library to just playlists. Why are you putting in an extra step for no reason. It doesn't make any sense to clog the list up with artists I liked. You can like like hundreds of artists and I simply do not have that many playlists. I just wanna see my playlists immediately and first without the extra clutter.
DeezNutsForPresident - Issues with playing music
Before I start, I wanted to say that I would've rated this app a 4-Star but I just have some issues. First I wanted to state that I have a big issue with making playlists. I hate how I have to literally search up songs to add into my playlist, like why can't I just go into my "Liked" music and add any of those songs into playlists so that it makes my life easier? Because I can't do that, I literally just go onto my liked songs and listen through there but its annoying cause I listen to many genres and sometimes I just sit and skip through songs just to find the right one. It's annoying and I just wish you guys made it easier.
I also wanted to bring up that recently, I literally can hardly play my music because it always just stops and cuts off. At first, I thought it was an issue with my car's bluetooth so I just connected my wire to play music through ApplePlay but that didn't stop the issue either. When I tried playing music with my earphones on, it kept doing the same thing. I would literally have to restart the entire app just for it to work but then it would just randomly cut off again. Because of this also, I only rate 3 stars. Please fix all of this, or I will be forced to just switch to Apple Music because I'm honestly just getting tired of all this nonsense. I had backed you guys up a lot and claimed you guys as the most efficient music app but now I'm having other thoughts.
TravelingCowboy74 - Calm down with the long commercials.
I could be wrong, but isn’t it better to hit people with quick, to the point, shots of why we should get the product? The 30 second commercials seem too long; forget about 2 min of hearing about each product. And do ya have to keep repeating the same thing 3 different ways? And that’s if there’s creativity involved; if not it’s just repeat the same words back to back to back to back. So you’re saying we haven’t got any smarter since Biblical times? Back then, making the point repetitively was the best way to get info to stick in our thick skulls. Here’s the truth -that you can only change by distracting me with annoyance at 90 seconds of redundant raving- I will “click here” if I’m truly interested! Which seems like what the goal should always be. Here’s 15 seconds of this great product, wanna know more? Click here to go to the site. And if now isn’t the right time, then “click over here ~tell me later; take me to the site in 20, 30, 50 min etc.” I realize that 25 years ago our entertainment came with over 20% commercial time. No choices, just the way it was -sit there and wait. And it was too much advert info then. And now we get all this “free” info\entertainment on the interwebs. But it’s somehow even more advert info now! Deflating difference is; it’s now everywhere, all the time, nowhere to look if you don’t want pitch, pitch pitch.
SiAksv - not bad music source but could be better
Okay, i have been using this app for a while and have experienced lots of weird things. First i want to talk about the shuffle thing. you can shuffle songs so that it picks random songs in any playlist, but thats where my huge problem is. you cant pick specific songs you just have to listen to the playlist until it plays that song. and if you have shuffle mode on for a little bit then you cant turn it off.. so, shuffle mode has a lot of disadvantages. I cant get rid of shuffle mode so I saw another glitch. Lets say that i decided to make my own playlist, I make it and other songs are added just because of shuffle mode, but you can add songs to get rid of them. Okay, then my playlist “ends” and then RANDOM songs play.. I have to play a different playlist now. and sometimes if i return to the one that i was playing the song is still there, and if i skip it more random songs will start playing, then i have to wait a whole HOUR to get more skips. I feel like non premium users should have more freedom of doing what they want. oh, and with shuffle mode on, you cant pick a song or make it into a loop. and like i said, after a little bit you cant turn shuffle mode off. So yeah, this app could definitely improve more things. Also, please don’t take what i'm saying the wrong way. Thank you for reading, and it would be a pleasure if one of these got fixed! Byee!!❤️
PowerFlash27 - My app is having issues
I’ve used this app A LOT. I remember a feature about a year ago where it showed you the lyrics on all of the songs, but it caused my app to crash every time I played a song. It would play the song halfway through and then crash and I would go back into the app and it had restarted the song. It would do this in a cycle until I skipped the song because I couldn’t handle hearing the first half of the song on repeat anymore. Occasionally it would work for one or two songs but that only happened rarely. Basically I could only hear half songs because the app kept crashing, and then I would use up all six of my skips and have to turn off the app. And I was SO relieved when after multiple months of suffering through this. Music means more to me now than it has ever, and here’s why im writing this; because I woke up this morning and saw that the lyric feature was back. I was very excited because I was hoping they had brought it back because they fixed the bugs it caused. Sadly the first song I tried to play made the app crash. I want to make you aware that I have a recent iPhone model with plenty of space on it, so it is not my phone causing these issues. Please PLEASE fix this quickly. Music is my comfort and my joy, I don’t know what I’ll do without it working. Please PLEASE PLEASE I beg you to fix this as fast as possible.
Espeonics - Lack of options, randomly censored songs
This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with.
My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen.
Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.
Zack_SillyBoi735 - Shuffle play only for people with the free plan... really?!?!!
I really do like this app and it’s cool music but I have one problem with it. People that don’t have a premium membership (have a free plan) are only able to play songs by shuffle playing. You use to be able to choose whatever song you would want to listen to on your playlist and you could shuffle play too but now you are only able to shuffle play if you don’t have the premium membership, and also, when I tap on the list of all of my songs in my playlist and I find a song that I want to play, it only plays a preview of the song. I think the shuffle play is kinda dumb because whenever I shuffle play it and my last song on my playlist stops playing (because the song is over) it moves on to a new song that I haven’t added to my playlist and whenever I hit the button that says “Shuffle Play” it controls if the song is paused or playing. I tried exiting out and reopening the app but the song is still there and acts as if it’s in my playlist.
I would give this app 5 stars if it weren’t for the shuffle play only thing.
Please change it so that people that don’t have a premium membership can listen to whatever songs they’d like too. Thanks for listen and have a good day.
EVERYTHNG IS TAKEN AAAAAA - I loved it at first.. But I might switch back to SoundCloud
I originally got on this app because my friends told me it was so much better. If you are on a computer or iPad, this app is absolutely amazing. The app recommends songs to you, makes custom playlists, and has an overall great experience. But if you are like me, who likes to listen to music anywhere on your phone, it’s absolutely unbearable to use it for free. After my free trial with premium, I tried starting my playlist while it was on shuffle. I got very confused on why I couldn’t play my songs in order, and then I realized it was because I didn’t have premium, I was very disappointed in this app. I was listening to one of my favorite songs and wanted to replay it, but I realized I wasn’t able to. I searched up the song to try and see if I could listen to it again, and instead it gave me a shuffle playlist with 20 other songs I would be forced to listen to. You also get limited skips a day, which I find completely unreasonable. This app has a few positive features, like how it recommends new sons based on your playlist, but what’s the point if you can barely even listen to it? In my opinion, on mobile, this app is completely “pay to win.” I don’t see any point in it being free if it’s awful on your phone, which I feel is much easier and convenient to listen on, and this app definitely took advantage of that. For mobile users like me, I don’t recommend this app.
Cupcakego - Needs improvement, overall good
Okay, so this is a great app if you’re a normal person that only has around fifteen or so playlists. But I’m not normal and i like to make loads if playlists and then i need to delete them. I think a really good feature you could add to this app is a delete button on the playlists tab. It would help with being able to select a mass number of playlists to easily delete. It would also be good to have a similar feature with adding songs. If there were a button that allowed you to add the same song to multiple playlists at once, instead of having to go through each playlist and add the song individually. Also, it would be good if in a playlist you could organize where each song goes like if you want to organize it alphabetically or something on mobile. Finally, it would be nice if you could add a way to view the amount of streams an album has, or make it easier to see. A group of people including me are trying to get an album to a certain number of streams, and I can’t view the number, although i think other people can, so if you could make the streams a bit easier to access that would be nice. Overall great app, needs improvements though ;)
Guitarguyct - Almost Amazing
This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode
I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on).
My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.
Rojiace5 - Free experience, I like it but…
After using the app for a month I was impressed that I was able to pick the songs that I wanted to listen to as well as the albums and podcasts.
However, since I haven’t purchased anything to lose a majority of functions such as picking individual songs that I would love to start listening to instead being treated to something entirely different from the song I picked is frustrating, cause what is the point of liking songs if I am unable to listen to those songs, because I haven’t gotten premium. I don’t mind listen to ads if it gets me to the song I want to listen to or skip a song that I don’t want to listen to then slowly transitions into more songs. This makes the search function obsolete if I search for a song only to get something completely different from the song I wanted. Or look for an album that I want to listen to only to not listen to the whole album. Though picking specific podcast episodes seems to function the way the whole app should.
If you want this for free, there are a lot of issues that I found makes it hard to find what you want to listen to or pick out specific songs that you want making liked songs unimportant if you can’t listen to them at a later time. Which is a shame cause the first time I downloaded it, really showed how amazing it is.
😂😄😃 - Love it but....
Why I like this app: I like it how you guys have made playlists and let us just pick a song and not just shuffle play well... most of them. Also you don’t have too be premium too use this app ( and please keep it like that because some people don’t have enough money or just don’t wanna waste it on something you should be able too use free).
Why I don’t like about this app: first is how you can’t just pick a song from a playlist and not have limited skips, I think that’s kinda weird to not be able to play a song you wanna hear from your playlist. Now I wanna talk about the adds, let’s just say it’s irritating like when your listening too a song and just randomly get this add that says. “Watch this short add for 30 mins of add free music” then when I hit “no thanks” a add plays like do y’all do this to make more money or just to be irritating 😐😑🙄 like c’mom can we just get no adds!?!?!? And just buy premium for better quality, limited skips, and just pick songs from playlists and not wait 1 hour for 6 skips? Like really the only thing you should get premium for is better quality and limited skips! Like can we have some freedom?!
Look this just my opinion about this app so don’t get mad😅😅😅
Danny2535 - Love it but..
This app is awesome! I love how you can listen to your own music, and share it. But I don’t like how it adds music to your playlist, and won’t let you remove it. I don’t get that I really hope you fix it soon. Also, when I only want to listen to my music it makes me listen to a suggested track that I can’t get out of. What is with that? And, there is too many ads. And only 6 skips per HOUR?! Why? And, when my playlist is making me listen to other songs, I have to go to a different playlist, listen to 1 song in it, come back to my playlist, and there it is. another song I don’t need. I am probably one of those users that will get ignored, but if you are looking at this, congratulations. You get a gold sticker. I wish that the users without premium could get AT LEAST 10 skips and hour. It’s not fair with only 6 per hour. I also want to add, that when I want to listen to my music ONLY and not some stupid suggested track, I can’t get out of it, because I used all of my skips on the DANG SUGGESTED TRACK! Fix that please!
I’m sorry if that is all jumbled. But PLEASE fix it. I have seen the other users complaints, and it looks like most of us are having the EXACT same problem. Smh. If you made it this far. FIXX THEMM. My temper is getting lost because of this app, not to be dramatic and all. Have a good day.
Kaylagh91 - UNUSABLE NEW HOME SCREEN
What?! The home page is now a whole bunch of podcasts and playlists that I’ve never listened to (or tried once) that fill up the whole screen, you scroll down 20 or so and then it’s done. Where’s all the playlist groupings that you scroll horizontally for? Recently listened to? Daily mixes? Mood suggestions? I LOVED THOSE!! The suggestions were all over the place sometimes but it was easy to find what you wanted or new music suggestions!! Do you want us to listen to the app less and eventually cancel premium?? Becasue that’s what’s happening with this update. I didn’t even update and my homepage magically changed, then I updated thinking it would fix it. Feels like a glitch. Horrible!! HORRIBLE. At least make the home page screen view an option to select the normal one or this dumb one. I’ve never written a scathing review but for an app I LOVE and use daily this is makes it lose all functionality. The “your library” tab was only good when I was looking for a specific playlist of mine (yes it’s still there but is just not very relevant). Everything else I navigated to from the homepage usually based on the app’s suggestions because I wanted to figure out what I was in the mood for… so with that gone my whole reason for using the app has disappeared. PLEASE FIX THIS BACK TO NORMAL I am begging you. No one asked for this loss of functionality and loss of suggestions and playlist groupings. I am livid because I love my music.
Catzlovs12 - Pretty good but...
It’s a pretty good app, you can get a lot of music and make your own playlists so that’s nice. It also has good sound quality and does it’s best to stabilize sound so you don’t get really jarred by the start of a new song.
My complaints are that there is a bug that just stops your music even when your internet connection is great. It often happens when your phone screen is locked, and sometimes when you open your phone and go to the app it has completely crashed, other times it has just paused it for some reason. My other complaint is more trivial, and it is about the auto play of recommended songs. I understand that the app is designed to act like a radio station, where you can’t really choose which songs you play and some will be played that are relating to the genre. However, I just really hate this feature, especially when I am playing songs from a artist that I really like however it is in a genre that I generally hate. Ideally the recommend song would be close enough to the artist’s style that the user might like the song as well even though they don’t like the genre, however that hasn’t been the case yet for me.
Other than my two complaints, this app is pretty great and I recommend it.
Its_me234 - I love this! All though….
I love this! But I woke up one day wanting to listen to music and I go on the app turn on my playlist and it wont let me see any of the music thought it was me so I’d fix it later but it was the app I think then when I click play all these songs come up that aren’t even on my playlist or that I’ve listened to before and so I go to the song and click play hoping that that would work but it it doesn't and I deleted and then reinstalled it and I still didt work And yes I resented it but for example I clicked my song to play and then it plays a song from frozen I never ever listened to but I’m not sure if it’s something I did or something the game dose because I have this on my tablet and it works perfectly fine but it’s only on my phone and my tablet I usually use it has most of my stuff got my phone bout 11 years after my tablet so you can see how this is annoying to me I play the song but it dosent go on most of the games apps or stuff I go into I get that’s how it is but I am at a lose I don’t want to have to delete the app because for me its a little stressful and I don’t get to listen to my music anymore if you could please fix this or something I’d really appreciate it it’s a really great app it’s truly awesome thanks
Emily the fan - Its okay, needs an update
Well, beforei loved the app, but now, either its a glitch or a update its hard to find one particular song, it comes up as an album for each song i want that i search for. i cant just listen to that song, and its not like i can repeat the song like i used to be able 2. Also, i cant make an album with a few songs, it adds a bunch of "recommended songs" like no, i only want these songs that i put in, wnd if i try to delete the song, it adds another song. I have tried over and over again to find the song "good 4 you" and it keeps showing albums that randomly pick the song before you, i remember when i could scroll through the songs of an album, now i cant, it just, wont let me, i dont know if its something wrong with my settings, s glitch, or a annoying update but its annoying me when im trying to relax or something and listen to music, and when i cannot repeat the song, sometimes i wanna repeat a song over and over again, now im forced to watch another 30 songs and spend an hour trying to find the song on another album, witch never works. Honestly before all these things i loved the app so much, best music app ever i had thought. Please update back to me. Thank you!
Hdgsyjatdjj - Y so many restrictions
Okay so i love listening to music٫ and when i got the app i didnt realize that i was in the 14 day trial. Basically I thought premium was just no adds whatsoever and well..that was dumb lol. Today my trial ended٫ and i found out I would only get to skip songs 6 times per hour, and the audio quality would not be as good. Why. I get the adds and all, and that you need to make money out of the app, but these kinds of restrictions are just forcing you to get premium. At least make it more than just 6 skips per hour!! Like, I love Alec Benjamin, but his songs can be a little inappropriate. Same with Rex Orange Country, bcs he can curse. If I’m listening to music with my little brothers and I have to suddenly stop playing it, what am I supposed to do? I’d have already used my 6 skips and can’t just be like “ok little bro guess I’m turning off my music.” He’s gonna be confused for sure. Oh and the fact they are making the audio quality not as good is outrageous. Why would you make the music quality not as good? Listen, I love the app and I’m going to get premium but please make less restrictions. It makes it hard to enjoy the app and the overall music.
N1kk133 - Wanna love it but......
I love the fact that this app has so much in regards to the amount of music and variety that is available. Wayyy better selection than what I have tried so far....but, I find the “suggested” songs to be very annoying. The songs that are played are nothing close to the music that I listen to and even when I click the “hide the song” button, the same songs are played again! If this app is supposed to be so great that it suggests songs based on what I listen to, I would want it to take the songs that I hide into consideration as well. Also, don’t suggest songs that are part of a genre that I obviously do not listen to! If anything, please allow me to hide the artists and genres that I do not want to appear on any of my suggested songs lists. Everyone has preferences on what they listen to and what they would rather not listen to. Even for people who are not paying for the unlimited skips, the least you could do would be to allow us to not be forced to listen to songs that we cannot stand. It just makes the app very unattractive to potential customers. I’m too scared to pay for the subscription because I cannot control how the app suggests songs like this. I want to just listen to the playlists that I have created without worrying about having songs being inserted randomly. Please fix this.
MudStainedWall - Sticky Songs
I wish I could give it 5 stars but I can’t. I’ve used the app for years now and this only really started happening a year ago or at least like 6 months ago. But songs that I’ve played a lot ie the songs I really like just don’t play. Or it takes a couple tries for them to start, going back and forth between a song I start to play, just so I can try to try start the song I actually want to hear, and the song I really want to listen to can just be annoying. I feel like I put up with it for long enough that some of the songs that I had no issues with before are now completely locked. I really don’t want to happen to my current favorite songs because it just makes me switch away from my favorite genres and find something that while being good doesn’t have the same sort of liveliness of true discovery. Instead it’s a bit of a feeling of relief like making it out school when it’s evacuated. That may not be the best way to look at it though, a little insensitive if anything else, but I’m just trying to say that it’s forced. It’s not something that I want or need to do, and the thing that’s making me have this musical exodus is the fact that my songs aren’t playing properly.
Soomxii - trouble with the app
So to get started I’ve had this app since 9th grade and not even when I had my iPhone 6 Plus did it give me issues like the app not working for me. Currently I have the iPhone 12 Pro But in the past couple of days I can’t use it at all, meaning I can’t scroll/interact with the app. I can’t choose a playlist, I can’t search for a song, I can’t play a song. I’ve done everything that I’ve seen online, tried logging out well the app doesn’t respond, so I did the best next thing which was uninstalled. I uninstalled the app and proceeded to log in again it work and I was able to play a song, but just 15 seconds of the song before it stopped and the app went unresponsive like it previously was. I turned off my phone I thought that would help, when I turned it back on and tried using the app it was the same thing. I ended up resetting my phone, entering my iCloud and dealing with all of the starting “new” for the app to not work. Please can a developer help me fix the issue or at least advice me on what to do next? I seriously love the app, but if I can’t get it to work I will have to cancel my subscription for it and get Apple Music instead because listening to music is one of the things I do the most. I seriously only use this app for music streaming so I’d be so sad having to give it up just for that. :’(
Aproctor8 - 3 Simple Fixes to Get Back to 5 Stars
1. You need to include an alphabetical quick scroll on the right-hand side of all of your lists, whether it’s your list of playlists, your Artist Library, or inside an actual playlist looking at songs. No one has the time to swipe for 30 seconds to the bottom of their library when they want to listen to The Who. A quick scroll has been a standard on every music app for years now. Get with the times!
2. The artist library page needs a royal update. Or retro-date, rather. I had an older version of the app until yesterday where all artists whose music you had saved into your library displayed on the same library in a neat, clean fashion, regardless of whether or not you Follow them. Now you can only neatly organize those artists whom you Follow, and the rest are left in this awkward, disorganized list of artists with a big “Follow” button next to it. We know what you’re doing guys. If we want to follow an artist, we will. For now, just let us organize our artist library in a straightforward fashion.
3. Another retro-date: put back the option to view your Songs Library. Sometimes you just wanna shuffle your songs. Yeah, the “Liked Songs” playlist is there, and that’s cool and all, but it’s not intuitive when you have “Playlists” and “Artists” listed up top. Put it back.
Canarylarry - It tracked my location…that’s kinda freaky
Ok so I took a one week vacation to Virginia and about 4 days in I noticed I was getting ads to become a lifeguard at Virginia Beach…I live a good nine hours away from there so that means it tracked my location. I don’t remember ever allowing it to do this. I mean I got ads for my home state before but I never thought anything of it. It took it about 3 days after I got home before the ads switched back to my home state. To be honest I was kind of freaked out about this… Other than that this app was pretty good. I mean there were long ads that occurred frequently and you couldn’t skip them. But other than that I liked it. Wish I would have been made aware that it tracks my location though..
Edit: So ads are now getting ridiculous :/ I don’t use this app as often as I used to so I’ve noticed when I get on I get more ads. I just got 5 one minute ads in a row after just listening to one song. When I first got this app I loved the ad system because it would give you an ad and then give you 30 minutes of ad free listening. Now it gives you multiple ads in a row after pretty much every song. I realize that it has to have ads since it is the free version but this is overkill. I do wish if they were going to give such long ads that there could be an option to skip it.
Ranpo77 - Please fix the new home page interface!
This app has, by far, been my most used app for years. But recently there has been one change that I greatly dislike and it’s very frustrating. The new home interface has made it extremely hard to find new music or music similar to the stuff I listen to. It’s just a bunch of random playlists of stuff I’ve usually already heard. It’s not useful at all. It’s actually quite counterproductive. I can’t jump back in to albums, playlists or artist either. It’s just an eternal scroll of random stuff. And if I want to look at songs I’ve been playing the most recently or any playlist like that, I have to go search for it in other pages. It’s very disappointing and it would be awesome if you guys could rectify this situation.
On another note, I can only press the green shuffle button one time and if I want to reshuffle have to go out of the playlists press something else and then go back in. It’s very frustrating, especially for someone like me who was hundreds, sometimes thousands of songs on my playlists (yes I am very obsessed with music 😂). Please fix these things.
Perfect app to have - Complicated
I'm just gonna get straight to the point and this is just me speaking my mind but I feel the fact that you can't purchase premium through the actual app and instead have to go to a whole other website is just complex, and this is just my opinion but I dislike the fact that there is not really much you give to the people who don’t have premium, we can't loop songs, we can't make a playlist without 8 other songs being added to it, etc. There are some kids who's parents may not allow them to buy premium. I'm just trying to listen to a song that could only be found on this app and as I said before we can't loop it, I even tried adding it specifically to it's own playlist but it added like 8-9 other songs. Just because you are recommending me something doesn't mean I want it on my playlists. All I'm saying is just give us something, something to at least work with.....I was going to buy premium but now I feel it's not worth it and I should just stick to SoundCloud like I was before. I hope you understand why I feel this way and I hope people without premium get more opportunities at listening to their favorite songs without issues in the future.
Susanne Martinez - My music suddenly stops playing and ads
I’ve been having this issue for awhile and it’s getting on my nerves. Sometimes when I’m listening to my music, it just suddenly stops playing and when I go back to play it again, it plays from the beginning. It’ll suddenly stop playing half way through the song and when I go back to press play again, the music starts from the beginning. It’s been doing that for about a few months now and at first I thought it was maybe my headphones, but just today I wasn’t using them and the music stopped again. I’m getting really tired of this happening. Also, when it does stop and goes to the beginning, I just skip to the next song on my playlist, but then again, it does the same thing to the next song. I want this to stop! It’s super annoying and I just want to listen to my music without any problems.
Also, when ads pop up, it gives you the option to skip them and go straight to your music. I always skip them because, to be honest, your ads are super annoying. I just close out of the app and go back in it again to play music. However, sometimes when I do skip the ads, it still plays an ad. Like, it SUPER ANNOYING and I’m getting sick of it. It gives you the option and you decide to play it anyway. Not cool. Please get back to me ASAP!
PaleWillows - Please read this.
This is getting extremely irritating. I have a family share premium, and whatever I do, (before this update it was fine, actually, the new UI screwed it up,) I can’t play the next song in my playlist. I try restarting my phone, PC, anything, and it keeps screwing up. I’ve tried everything. For real, fix your bugs and don’t put the old bugs into a new update, PLEASE.
Not to mention, for non premium users, fix the ad problem. There’s definitely great ideas, but they are executed quite poorly. It’s clear that you want people to pay to do anything. And really, you shouldn’t even be plaguing them with ads if premium has just as many. 6 hours for each skip? There are 24 hours in a day. You’re telling me they only get FOUR SKIPS EVERY 24 HOURS? Seriously, that’s just downright disgusting and rude at that point. If you’re going to torment them like that, at least make it so it’s 2 additional skips per every 12 hours they wait, otherwise it’s just repetitive.
Anyways, remember that UI says a lot too. And you should also add the shortcuts back. They were quite useful. And once again, fix the bugs before sending out a new update because it’s annoying. That’s all I have to say for now, and I apologize if it’s jumbled. Please at least TRY and take this into consideration.
Plz respond i am a BIG fan!!!! - Download this!!!!!!!!!!!!
SEARCH UP: songs that get you in a mood (And it’s by Robin) Thats my playlist!!! It has those songs that get you in that cruella de vil mood; it’s public so go listen to it!!
This is obviously a 5 star app, no ads and you can create as many playlists as you want with as many songs as you want, of course there is the payment you have to make but there are no ads so I think it’s a good choice (and you can download your playlist and listen offline👏🏼) However I noticed that you can only add all songs on a playlist made by the songwriter of those songs (for example I was making a kidzbop playlist as a joke btw and I noticed I could put all of the songs from a playlist full of kidzbop songs at once when the playlist was made by kidzbop, but I couldn’t do that when it wasn’t made by kidzbop! I think it’s a great idea that you can do that feature but it would be even better if you could do that for all playlists!
Thanks for reading! (Look up that playlist!!!) Also sorry if it was a tad hard to understand what I was talking about I don’t really have a great way with words! Bye!
Loven dis app - No thanks not worth it
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
Gabriela.nr - feedback (updated)
I already scrolled through enough reviews to where I know I'm not the only one, but yo.. what's up with this new update?? I used to like that when if on the "Your Library" tab you could click on a recently played artist or just an artist from the "Artists" tab and it would take you only to the songs you saved from them, but then if you clicked on them from the "Home" tab it would take you to their main profile page. Now it takes you to their main page even if you click on the artist from the library tab. It's extremely inconvenient, I would like to listen to only the songs I have saved from an artist not all of them. Before the update at least we had the choice. And as dramatic as this sound I have to agree with other people, it really IS enough to make me want to delete the app because of how inconvenient it has actually become to listen to my saved songs.
Also the layout is just kinda weird. Well not weird but the one before was definitely better. It had your recently played artists or albums or whatever it is you listen to. And now it's not really like that anymore. Now you gotta go to them from the "Home" tab. I won't lie, it doesn't bother me as much as the first thing I mentioned (PLS CHANGE THAT BACK), but it's for sure something I wouldn't mind if y'all brought back.
OMGalaxy! - The Music Just...Stops?!
So, I love this app so much. I can’t live without it 😅 Everything is great! But there is one thing that I have a problem with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this problem but, basically what happens is while I’m listening to a song It just like, out of nowhere the music just stops! I don’t close the app at all. Usually this happens when my phone isn’t even on. (Like if the screen timeout goes off.) This problem is so annoying, probably more annoying then the adds not gonna lie. And when the music stops, it start all over again! Once this happened to me while I was done with the song so I had to listen to the whole thing again! This has happened so many times. It even happened more then 4 times while I was writing this review! I know I could just skip the song but I would probably run out of skips because I don’t have premium. I just want this to be fixed because it’s really annoying. I hope the app developers see this and fix it. Other then that, this apps one of the best ones I have and one of the most used too! Thanks for reading!
Corndog3135 - Now is unnecessarily complex
The number one thing I hate about this update is the fact that anytime I pick a song, shuffle turns off. It's literally a joke that I have to turn it on every time I pick a new song. What confuses me is the fact that repeat stays on when shuffle turns off. That needs to be fixed. Another thing is the fact that you can't hide the recommended songs that are at the bottom of each playlist. Which tends to always have the same songs on it. Which is quite annoying. Another thing is that when you search for something on a playlist, you cannot slide to the right to add to queue anymore. Which is a major time consumer now. A guy should be able to add to queue in a lot faster time than having to click song options, scroll down, and add to queue, because if there's multiple songs you'd like to add, it should take 10 seconds to add 10 songs. Not 10 seconds to add just one song. One more topic is that I have to go through multiple screens just to go to queue. Whom ever had that idea is considerably unintelligent. It used to be so simple and easy to use. Now it's like you're playing a intelligence and patience game with every user. With this new update, many things became very unnecessarily complex. My patience with this app is going quickly. I hope you fix these format issues.
Toner_B - Great but...
At the time of writing this, I have some annoyances with the app. Number one being that there is a major crashing problem with this app. I am pretty confident it is not my phone due to it still being fairly new (IPhone 8). At the moment I have counted the app crashing 8 times within the hour. I am on all of the latest app version and iOS. Another issue I have. You used to be able to go into an artist album and look at the songs and preview play them, now you can’t, this is extremely annoying when I’m trying to preview songs to add to my playlists. It was fine before but they are always changing it. Another issue I have are ads. There used to be 2-3 ads about every 30 minutes with the occasional “watch the video to get 30 minutes ad free” ad. Now, ads every 2-3 songs and when the watch video ad comes up, I still end up watching two more ads after the “so called” only video. The list goes on and on with things. This app was much better months ago but it is getting very out of hand. Looks like I’m switching to Apple Music I guess.
Sailor-Cat - It’s great but..
So I started using it because I didn’t need to have a subscription to use it freely unlike Apple Music which I used for awhile then cancelled the subscription I had. It’s kinda confusing like you can’t really save stuff. Also, the 6 skips an hour thing is annoying too! so I understand it’s most likely to keep the app free and all. but when I made my account it said I could listen with infinite skips and ZERO adds for free nothing about the seven day free premium trial! But no no no life isn’t that simple so basically I download it on my phone for the first time (I made my account on a computer so I could listen to music at school also I still had Apple Music at the time of making the account) and then this notification pops up that my seven day free trial has expired. Oh and this is right after I had texted my mom that’s it completely free! But we could have totally avoided this problem if the developers would just flipping fix their stupid app, and not say that with an account you can “listen completely free with no adds and infinite skips” cause that’s a lie. And don’t reply back to me saying “ That’s not true we say something about the trial!” Because then you’ll be lying even more!😡😡😡
RoyalMarz - Please fix this
This app was amazing, loved it so so much. There are few problems though,1. it is very difficult to turn shuffle play on and off and it is difficult to know when it is on and when it isn’t. It would be great if there was a way to fix this.
2. The new update totally screwed the app up, it isn’t worth it anymore, I’m more motivated not get the premium but rather to just go to another app. The library layout is terrible, very difficult to find what you are looking for. Hate it with a passion, and you put a limit to how many songs you can skip without premium? Another issue: when looking through songs, you can’t just pick a song to play and start the playlist from there, it only plays part of the song. Maybe I’m doing some gin wrong there, but it’s terrible now.
The ads I don’t really mind, annoying, but fine whatever, the layout in the library/playlist is terrible, the shuffle button is broke, and you can only skip so many songs. And I cannot play songs without shuffle. Please please fix the library layout, skipping thing, and how I can only play songs on shuffle. I don’t even want to bother with this app anymore. Before this update, I had no complaints what so ever. Other than the issues listed, amazing app!
Aspiringwritertobe - Glitch
I like this app and I actually like that it suggests other songs to listen to because I like finding new music that fits into my category. I’m even okay with the only six skips an hour thing because I’m not picky and I have multiple playlists I can listen to. However, for some reason every time I’m listening to the music nowadays the app will randomly exit out and stop playing music. I have to physically get back into the app just to restart the song I’d been listening to, and it always starts back up at like 0:07, so I’ll listen to like 3/4 of the song AGAIN just for it to cut out and I have to restart the process over. Just now I listened to the same song seven times in a row without completion. This is a consistent problem that’s pushed me to write a review (which I don’t normally do). I’ve even gone online to see what I can do to fix it and tried all the suggestions (exiting out of all other apps, completely logging out of my account and logging back in, etc.) and it still does it. Like I said, I can make do with the small amount of skips per hour and even the suggestive songs to my playlists but this is getting ridiculous since I can’t even do what the app is made for. 👎
PhoenixBirdCity - great app, but annoying rollback of features in recent update
This is a review about the recent change to "Your Library". Generally these changes are a substantial UI improvement and navigating between various views is far more intuitive now that the notion of a my library home page, with all relevant shortcuts to artists, podcasts,... only available there.
the only issues I’ve run into as of yet are 1. the lack of the a-z navigation scroll bar in the Albums section and 2. the lack of a move to front list of recently played albums. re 2. however, I feel this may actually be useful toward encouraging people to diversify their listening, as the design of defaulting to recently played in my experience makes it difficult to spend time finding something I’d like to listen to (either new or archived in my albums section) when my attention is already so contested by everything else.
so yeah, I actually like what I said was my second complaint, and thinking back had thought about that before. being able to scroll quickly through the albums seems like a good interaction to keep, however.
Tearsofaseacow - The new Home Screen is terrible on Mobile
Never written a review for anything but this has prompted me. I’ve been a premium user for a few years now on the mobile app and the Home Screen was as close to perfect as I could have expected . I would use the top half of it 90% of the time and that was good enough because it would offer easy visual access to new music and recommendations. Very little scrolling was required due to the plethora of options that could be viewed at one time without scrolling. Now that everything is larger only 2 listening options are available to be viewed without scrolling. 2 options per scroll is a huge step backwards and it’s completely wasted space on the screen. I’m wasting time browsing through music I don’t care about when I was able to scroll twice in the past and find something interesting. The new format also randomly inserts music I’ve just listened to into the mix to fill space, which is frustrating and pointless. At least make the old format an option in the settings. This new format has made finding new music more difficult than ever and it’s unintuitive. By far the worst update the app has ever had. This isn’t going to bring anyone over from Apple Music or Pandora and I’m not sure who the target audience is for this. Senior citizens maybe?
Zadolk - Okay but Very Infuriating
This is a very good app for organizing and finding music without wasting too much battery. I use it every day and it does its job okay. My problem with this app is its ads. Yes, I know that you can get rid of ads by purchasing premium, but for those who don’t want premium their ad experience should be improved. I’ve been listening to the same ads on repeat for weeks. It gets tedious when I have the same nonsense spouted at me for hours worth of time. Another issue I have is the dislike ad feature. When you dislike an ad you shouldn’t hear it as often as you would normally right? But it seems as if this app hates me because when I dislike an ad it just plays it MORE often. Another issue, suggested songs. Suggested songs is a great feature, however, I’ve been having issues with it. I would be listening to a 3 hour long playlist, and only after hearing 9-10 songs off that playlist it would start suggesting songs. Songs should only be suggested after almost every song has played? So why am I hearing songs that I don’t want to listen too?
Overall this app drives me insane and I don’t think I can use it for much longer if this continues.
Fleuriiist - Honest opinion
This app is very good, and pretty decent for the fact that it is free. I do not have too many complaints since it is free and if you are uncomfortable with the free version of the app, there is always the free version. One of my only complaints about the app is, when you search for an album and want to see more songs from a certain album, in the mobile version, you can't access the full album, and now you can't even see the songs that you yourself put on your playlist. What is the point of doing that?? Please fix that, it's useless. It is very annoying.
Another complain I have is when your playlist ends, you get a radio recommending you songs that could match your taste. There is an option where you can see the songs you’ve listened to recently but when it comes to the radio songs, they’re never registered. I know the like button is an option but sometimes you’re busy and can’t really click the like button. It would be so much better if the recently played option expanded to the radio songs as well.
Jedihobbit - Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you.
I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else.
Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill.
I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything.
Hole.io lover #1 - READ THIS RN OR ELSE
I’ve been using this app for a day and it’s been doing good but from all the reviews I’ve been reading it seems like it crashes a lot and it has to many ads. And there is like 23 reviews I’ve read that say these things! (I’m a fast reader) pls pls pls pls fix this if this is true and it seems as if it is. And most of the reviews give you guys 1 star and so sense I haven’t used it for a long time I give it 3stars because for now it seems like a good app. And also if you yes you not the creators of the app, if YOU are reading this, before you just start falling for the reviews that say amazing but... and stuff like that, click on “sort by” and click on most critical and you will see probably like 70 reviews saying all this stuff and if you really think about it, there are only like 13 reviews that say good stuff about this app! So as I said 3 stars for now and as I start using this app longer I will see if I still like it or if I’m going to go with the other like 70 reviews that say this app is bad. And if you made it this far goodbye and have a nice day, morning, night, evening, afternoon or wherever you are!
MagicaOfKoning - New update
Hello! I love this app a lot because of its playlist ability but I do not like the new update. In the update they changed how playlists work and how the artist areas and songs are played. My main problem with the new update is the fact that you can’t play the songs you have inside a playlist you can only play the playlist and it will shuffle through the songs you have in that playlist. Most of the time when I use a playlist I categorize songs that make me feel a certain way so when I’m feeling that emotion I can go into that playlist and listen to the song I want; however with the new update I can’t pick which song I start with and it really annoys me. I also hate all the new options and how much guess work has to happen. I much prefer the old set up and navigation to the new one and would like there to be some kind of settings option to go back to the old version or to just scrap this dumpster fire of a new set up all together.
To any readers of this I’m sorry if a lot of what I said was repeated or doesn’t make sense I’m not the best at expressing how I feel about something through words I just really needed to talk about how much I hate this update.
Aelar Lightbringer - Amazing amount of free music; could use some work on "made for you" playlists
It's very easy to use, and has literally every song I've tried to find (including some extremely obscure ones). I only have two complaints.
One is that in the playlists that the app creates for you, it tends to only play songs that you have already listened to multiple times (in shuffle lol) or popular, similar ones. If I follow an artist, there should be an option to mix their more obscure music with the popular stuff. If a playlist is "made for me," it should be able to play whatever it is I like, whether it's a superstar's most popular hit songs, or the most obscure songs released by a guy with 500 listeners. It's not a radio station; it only has to cater to the tastes of one specific person.
Secondly, there should be a way to add, if not entire artists, then at least full albums to playlists that you're creating from the app. I follow over fifty artists, and if I like all of their music, I don't want to add all 3000+ of their songs individually. It wouldn't be a hard feature to add, and would make me actually likely to create a playlist or two.
Thank you for reading my review!
Jc_248 - New update is frustrating!
Been a loyal premium user for yeaaaaars and never have felt the need to change streaming platforms. However, the new differentiation between saved songs, albums, and artists is incredibly frustrating. If I unsave an album, all the songs are still saved (it just won’t show up in the album section). If I save a new single that is released, I have save the song and the “album” separately to get them to come up on both lists. On top of that, the artist page only shows who you follow, and it’s not like I even keep track of who’s music is saved on my phone (I’m close to 3000 songs).
I like to go to my most recent songs or most recent albums to set up playlists or my queue for a drive in the car, or maybe I want to shuffle all the songs I’ve saved by one artist because I’m in that mood. If I don’t want to play one album specifically, I can’t do that... and shuffling the artist page just isn’t the same. Unless there is some streamlining of this new system somehow to make this less obnoxious, I would MUCH rather go back to the old version. I don’t mind aesthetic/menu changes, but this makes using the app how I like much harder. Please help! I don’t want to have to switch to Apple!
Juliana corner - Save songs for premium
I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.
Hornswoggle! - Malfunctions
App freezes all the time and songs won’t play or app skips to the next song. Fix your app instead of making your interns post fake, five star reviews. Do you need something to do? Try going through your playlists and selecting like for all the songs in them because the app removed the like and if they hadn’t been saved in playlists, your Liked Songs list would be empty. Then you wouldn’t have that song by Japanese Breakfast. Think about that. I’d like to merge playlists, so I can select all the songs in one or more lists and add them to either an existing list or create a new list. If I make a listening queue, I’d like to save those songs as a playlist. (Think prime music.) Do you have any idea how tedious it is to create a playlist by adding one song at a time? I want to customize my playlist order in my library, so I can easily access my favorites without scrolling. I want to find playlists in my library by song. That way I don’t have to search through my 80 playlists to find one specific song. For example, if I type Sgt. Pepper… into my library search bar, all the playlists that include that song would appear in the results. The current search only finds playlist by titles. The app crashes when I’m playing music and start up any other app.

Neooctapie - Perfect for Listening to Music
I love this app, it works well for me and it’s quite user friendly and I enjoy listening to music often! Tho I would think it could help to have the capability to move groups of songs from one playlist to another at a time (together instead of just clicking on each song individually cuz that can get quite annoying sometimes), and it would nice to see some more editing control over the playlist editing functions, I wish I could just drag each songs to without scrolling to the top to press the little buttons to edit each time I wanna change the order of tracks in a playlist! The design It has a nice streamlined feel and feels quite simple so it’s organic to use, and the features are handy as well… (Like the ‘Equalizer’ under the ‘Playback’ Setting on the iPhone IOS version) these tools are really handy and I would like see more like this in the future as well! This app is well designed for any musical lover or audiophile and hardly ever glitches or crashes, I hope to keep seeing new cool updates that surprise fans in the future!
Aiden Raptor - Great app 😄but needs work
I love the app and everything about it but there are some things that need work. I would like the option to select a song or music and move it to the place you want it in saved songs and playlists, just like what you do with the photos in the photo albums, because I like to listen to my music in a certain order and every now and then I add a new song and I want to put it in a certain place or I accidentally remove a song I saved and I have to save it again and remove all the songs above it and re save them to the right order and it’s just too long and hard because some songs get deleted and some aren’t the same as the ones i have, even if they have the same name and artists, so I have to save the new one and remove the old one. What’s also annoying is that they say there is now 30 minutes ad free, but most of the time it only plays 2-4 songs and then ads come up. So I want it to be a bit more accurate in the next update. I would also like it if you could add the soundtracks to the documentaries Walking With Dinosaurs and Dinosaur Revolution, Disney’s Dinosaur movie, Dot and the Kangaroo (with sequels that follow it) and some classic Australian songs because I would like to listen to them on this app. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE NEXT UPDATE.
Lisabicks - Great content, needs work to make more user friendly
Great app & content. But a few tweaks would make it more user friendly.
I reeeeally dislike having to click on the dots & 'add to playlist' 4 times for every playlist I want to add a song to. Surely you should be able to hit add to more than one playlist without having to go back through all the menu options again, click the dots again & add to playlist again. Not very streamlined.
Also would love a ‘fast forward’ or ‘rewind’ button like what you have on podcast apps so that you can skip through 15sec at a time instead of trying to scroll to a certain point clumsily with your fingers on a tiny dot. This is particularly hard to do when exercising.
It appears not much has changed with the functionality over the years to improve usability
Spooky01 - What happened?
Okay so, what were you guys thinking?! Why did you remove the ability to check out an album with previews like you can a playlist? WHAT IDIOT HAD THAT IDEA?![Pardon my French] Your app is already going down hill, and to “counteract” that, you remove album previews? Now I have to go through this long ordeal of finding the songs on someone’s public playlist to see if they’re actually worth adding to my playlist, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! Don’t get me wrong, I think the app is good and easy to use but, honestly, you’re just screwing yourselves over here guys. Also, I think you tend to be less inclusive of some small bands and songs, there have been multiple instances where I’ve tried to find a song I like but I’ve come up empty handed[Yes I have the right name]. You focus too much on mainstream music, and don’t focus enough on less, in the spotlight bands and songs. Fix it and allow us to listen to album previews again, and add less popular songs and bands, be more inclusive of that kind of stuff and I might begin to favour your app again.
GachaCrazyGirl - Great app and all but I have something to say
As I said, the app itself isn’t bad it’s just one thing. I turn off my iPad and the music stops after about a minute. This REALLY gets on my nerves seeing as I like to listen to music while doing other stuff. I’ve tried logging out on all devices. Didn’t work. I tried getting a new account. Didn’t work. Tried listening without headphones. Didn’t work. I know it could be because my iPad is from 2018 and it’s just stuffing up, I even updated my iPad to try to fix it. I didn’t want to get the update bit I thought that could be the problem. I have found that I only have had this problem after the update ,that was a couple weeks ago, and I have a feeling that may be the problem. I would like to know if this is what it could be or if it’s just my iPad ( yes Ik this is a review but I know that sometimes the reviews get read and replied to).
Cloudy<3! - Amazing app.
One of the best apps I’ve ever got, this app helps me deal with my anxiety and I can express myself listening to all different songs, and finding songs that are from movies!! ( anyone who hasn’t bought premium yet, I recommend it as your next purchase, I am able to listen to music offline where ever I am! It’s amazing ) I recommend this app, I would really like if there was a facility to stop playing your music at a time, sometimes at night I listen to music and I fall asleep to it and I wake up to music in my ears. I would really appreciate if there was a button were you could choose to set alarms for how long a playlist plays. That would be very useful, whoever doesn’t have this app already should get it, it’s so good and free!!
Thank you for reading! <3
Starbird green - Daily drive algorithms glitchy
This is a good app, I use it everyday and subscribe to premium. I’d give it 5 stars if only the daily drive worked more effectively but it’s filled with issues.
First, there are no options for news choices, yes, the abc is a no brainer, but what happened to the squiz and betoota? They’re both excellent! Love me Betoota news! And why can’t I choose to remove some of the lousy news broadcasts selected for me? And why not allow me to select news sources from overseas?
Second, and this has made it hardly worth even bothering with, it chooses the same fifty or so songs everyday. Most of which have been deselected long ago, but they still show up, so what I end up with is a dozen songs I really like but would rather not hear every single day and a bunch of boring headlines I could read in a Murdoch rag with no real presenter charm or depth.
What’s the solution here?

Ambey wamby - It’s alright but needs a lot of work
It’s got all the songs and it’s a great app, b it some things are just not well thought through at all! For example, you cannot skip songs which is very annoying because I can’t get to the songs that I want to play. It’s also very annoying because there are so many ads, and they are sooo long!! I know that premium is cheap and all to get, but it’s just not worth it! Premium is so complicated to get and is a waste of time because half the time, I still get ads. I think it is so much more worth it to just buy songs on iTunes because then you can do whatever you want with them! I know it’s a good way to earn money, but it would be better to get money by actually making things that people will like. Overall, I think that the app is great, there is a lot of songs and it is very good idea, but there is just so much space for improvement and a lot of work needs to be done to make this app what people actually want.
Forget the nickname. 5 tries - Music selection
Just connected yesterday, your site was recommended to me by a young 16 year old. I’am in my mid 60’s you’ve collated my likes of the three artists I selected to a T. Enjoy the aap layout and ease of navigating through it. I’am learning.
After 12 months I really enjoy your music selection across multiple genres of music. On the odd occasion whilst listening to my favourites other new or unselected songs play, mainly rap which I dislike. This happens when I’am under the shower and infuriates me as I have to get in and out multiple times to re track my music. I’ll try Premium soon but only use for an hour a day and currently suffices my needs. Thank you.

ScienceteacherMelbourne - Suggestions for classical music especially:
I listen to all sorts of music & this app is great for being able to find your way outside the usual “bubble”. But for people who listen to classical works there are a few issues that could probably be easily improved.
First is to be able to see who has recorded a particular piece, then choose which soloist/conductor/orchestra/choir etc to download. At the moment there’s little choice, and it’s very difficult to see (at least on my iPhone 6s+ screen) who is featured.
Second, when I am listening to something with a lot of movements I want to see quickly which one is playing- but the scrolling info is so slow that the screen goes back to sleep before the movement number goes across - or else it’s something like the Rachmaninov variations on a theme of Paganini, with 24 short sections and the movement is finished before its number reaches the screen. Can I set it to scroll faster? Or touch it to pause & enlarge to see all the info at once?
Third thing is lack of important info like recording date & the other things mentioned above, ho was in he band for this recording etc
Lastly atm, I haven’t figured out how to just play my playlist and then stop - it goes on to play random stuff and totally spoils the mood. Annoying.
But overall a good app, worth the money.
Omelette90 - Better than Apple
You can really tell the UX has been a key focus for this app over the years. I’ve used it since it was first released and have enjoyed to additional functionalities they added and improved.
But I hate... and I mean HATE the fact that the Daily Mix changes genres every. single. day. I love listening to certain genres and being able to jump back into a daily mix I was listening to the day before is so great. But when they change daily, it will finish the song I’m listening to and then jump into a song from a different genre.
I’m very much a mood listener. So when I’m listening to metal, I don’t want to listen to indie a pop or folk or country. Or vice versa!
Meepy random man - Amazing but I am kind of annoyed about something
Ok I love this app, I even have premium and have had it downloaded for over a year now, but recently I have noticed that I cannot play music while in other apps like I used to be able to do about a week ago, it’s very annoying for me because my favourite thing to do was to listen to music while scrolling or playing on other app, it was a real anxiety and stress calmer. But now it’s gone and I’m quite upset about that. Could you maybe change it back, please. Anyways love the app 🤗 actually this is an edit, I just updated the app and it has gone back to me being apple to sue it in other app 😅kind of a strange coincidence
Anna.marshall7475 - good but needs some work done!!!
it overall a good app but needs some improvements just to make it that much better, i think you should make it so us people making playlists can change the picture of the playlist cover to say fit something as pleasing instead of only being able to change it on computer but it’s so hard cause you have to have a sit size and way it has to be but that’s one thing that needs something better not only on computer not all of us have one. and lastly i think you should change we can move the songs around in the may list or liked songs !!! would also line if you add a song named “ A little ray of sunshine “ by axiom such a good song but hope you read this and do the changes !!! 👍👍
Why is every name taken smh - My queue doesn’t work properly..
Not gonna lie this is a solid app and is one I use pretty much daily and premium is cheap and well worth it, however recently I’ve noticed that my music queue doesn’t work as well as it used, by that I mean I can queue songs but sometimes I like to change the order the songs have gone in so I go and move all the songs around but when the next song comes on, it never plays in the order I put it in. So if that could be fixed asap that would be great ^_^
I also agree with other users in terms of making the playlists easier to manipulate on phones like through the use of being able to select multiple songs at once to add and whatnot :))
Sktwigs - More Diversity
This review is based solely on this issue- otherwise this is actually a great app. I take issue with the fact that no African country is listed in the Top50 by country. I mean c’mon. There is a tonne of great music coming out of Africa, especially Nigeria, for example. Please fix this asap. Secondly, contrary to popular opinion, i don’t think that machine learning encourages discovery of new music. It just recommends music that sounds like what you’re already listening to. Boring. I’d prefer it if random tracks were thrown at me, maybe based on the fact that they are popular in certain regions of the world. I’d love to know what’s hip and happening in Beijing or Kurdistan for example. Music is universal. If it’s good, it’s good. Not good for me based on my location. ✌️
Shlackalackaboom - Amazing app but
Amazing app, premium is definitely worth it and I love using the app
The phone version has some flaws that need ironing though.
Creating playlists and editing playlists should be easier on the phone. Potentially adding a feature where you can select multiple songs to add to a playlist at once. Also being able to delete a playlist from the 3 dots next to it instead of scrolling to the top.
Also the shuffle feature sometimes feels like it’s broken, shuffling, then returning to normal, then pressing shuffle again should provide me with a fresh set of songs. Instead it shows the same 5 every time, with a couple in a different order. Additionally, sometimes these are songs I have just listened to on another device.
Quakely - Keeps crashing
I’ve been having this problem for many months now, but my app keeps crashing! Sometimes it will crash 4 times within 2 minutes, which makes listening to music to de-stress even more stressful than not listening to it. Recently it’s been happening on my computer too, please fix this! This morning I’ve listened to the same song 6 times because it can’t even make it to the end of it without crashing.
This is still persisting almost a year later!! I’ve tried SIX (6) times to get through the same song this morning, having to close and reopen the app every twenty-ish seconds. Please fix this!
Update: I have now tried to get through a song and I have yet to as it has CRASHED EIGHT (8) TIMES. Not helpful at all since I’m trying to relax on the way to my exam, as it is only causing me more stress and frustration.
Bibrius - AMAZING APP however...
This app is so good! Majorly because I have premium but it’s so worth it and great deals like the family premium. I have never had a problem with this app however recently as soon as I enter the app it immediately exists and takes me back to my home screen. This has only just started to happen today and no matter how many times I have deleted the app one second that I am in it exits and goes to the phone home screen. I have no idea what to do so I really need some help with that as I am not able to use this app at all right now. How we I love this app and I use it daily, a variety of songs. Please help me with this issue. But it’s the best app if this works.
Sischuan - Best music platform
I highly recommend the ap premium or not. It's better to me than having to buy each song and not even own it like other platforms, you can still lock your phone and be able to listen to music. The playlist they create for you on premium and the way you can "radio" find like minded music from a song or a playlist is the best way to not have to think what's the next going to be. But I look forward to new songs I'm more confident I'll like and not waist precious listening time to others not my type. Use it every day. And awesome it look up pre made list for events in life like social, meditation, car trips. All made for you super easy !
Queen of the Herd - Pls get rid of download button
Really good, have had it for almost 3 years but could be better especially on mobile. One question.... why is there a button to delete your whole offline library? And why is it in such a easy to hit spot?! I’ve done this at least twice while out and about and had to redownload +400 songs (was also on holiday with only rare wifi connection)!! This should be in a menu /away/ from the offline library!
Would also love a way to clean out old music since the app can end up taking up +10 gigs. Maybe a list of songs I haven’t listened to in awhile so I know what to get rid off. Also would like to see account stats such as what songs I’ve listened to the most and how many songs I have
JRN2005 - Why I rate it one star.
I rate this app one star, because mine is literally different to everyone else’s. All my friends and family who have this, theirs is totally different to mine. The reason it is different, is because if I have a playlist, I can’t choose what songs I want to listen to, but they can. But if I do want to choose a song, I have six chances to choose one, and on that sixth chance, I get an ad. So every six songs, an ad comes. But with my friends and families ones, they only have ads every half an hour. If I do try and choose my own song, it only gives me the preview of the song. Another reason is that when I want to add a song to my playlist, it comes up with the whole album, not just the single. So I then have to add the whole album to my playlist. I’m sorry to say but I’m not very impressed with this app as everyone else is. If anyone else’s app is like this, or you know how to fix it.. please let me know.
LyssiLovesU - Can Be Improved
I’m a free user, so I don’t know what it is like for the Premium users. I do, however, know that if I want to listen to an album, I don’t want to be interrupted by other songs. Periodically, sure, I can listen to a suggested song, but when the suggested songs stop letting me listen to the album itself? That annoys me.
I also don’t appreciate having to shuffle everything, and not being able to repeat songs, or backspace. I might find a really good bop in that long list of suggested songs, but even if I add it to an album, I have to shuffle so It may take a couple of songs and ads, or the suggested songs will take over and I won’t get to listen.
Overall, I think that, yes it’s good, but the experience for free users can be improved. I’m broke. I can’t afford a monthly or a yearly subscription.
BRenaaee - I’m really annoyed
Can the extra songs stop being added to my playlist I don’t like any of them 🙄 also what’s the go with 6 skips per hour and not being able to listen to a song without it being in a playlist on my iPad I have unlimited skips and can play the song as soon as I want and I didn’t even pay for premium, that’s how I want it on my phone, to be honest it’s overly annoying and I don’t really wanna keep using the app if that’s how it’s gonna be, I understand your trying to make money from the app but I think it’s more important to have satisfied customers then that means your getting more from the app and that makes it fair for all.
B3nis reviews 101 - Alright.
Eh like I like the music but the non premium version just has so many ads and they’re a kinda ripping u off because they are making money off the ads even if u don’t buy premium, then making even more when u pay for no ads. Also if u finish listening to a playlist then the next songs are pretty much the same songs from the playlist. The laptop version is better than the phone version because u can actually listen to the songs without having to listen to a whole playlist before u hear the one song u originally wanted to listen to. personally prefer soundcloud, even the premium on soundcloud is cheaper..
Boopysmoop - Very frustrating at times
This app is nice, but I’m getting really sick something that’s happening. I’ll leave my phone alone after getting set to a playlist, and halfway through a song it’ll completely stop! When I tap on my phone again and sign in I find that it’s gone out of the app. When I get back into the app the song has gone back to the start! It really annoys me, and since you can’t go forward in a song I have to listen to the song again:( I have tried multiple things to prevent this, none of them have worked.
That is my main complaint, but other things like the limited skips and the fact that you can’t listen to a singular song without paying is also very irritating.
XxxZiaTitanxxX - Nearly there
See I have this problem where I can't get rid of how should I say it. well, I think it's a glitch you know how it shows what song your playing at the bottom of the screen the thing is mine used to now it doesn't it's at the left of the screen and I can't get rid of it. Plz, tell me if you have any advice to get it back to normal position it really takes up a lot of room and my keyboard is all weird. Another thing when the advertisement comes up and it says enjoy the next 30 minutes of uninterrupted listing thanks to the following sponsor. One I set a stopwatch as soon as the speech finished but an ad came up 7 mins later. Plz fix timing
Ksoulgirl - Ideas I want
Great but hey can it be changed that if u keep a playlist on for all the songs in the playlist it doesn't repeat songs then miss some bc there's a few I keep repeating but heaps that haven't been played in ages. The shuffle play needs to move to the next unplayed song if there is any and that can change every time you change the playlist that's on. This also happens bc when you're on a playlist then you turn of the app for a bit it doesn't remember the song you were on and just starts from the beginning which I don't like.
Great quality and set out etc but it's a little annoying in this part^
Thankyou for making this it's changed my life and made music so much more accessible
Sidbdidbdi - Skipping
I recommend making it so people without premium can skip because there are people in this world who would love to listen to music but the option to skip being unavailable is very hard to enjoy making Storify an app I would recommend to others or myself plus there are people who are poor this feature is just unbelievable
Thank you for your time and if you could give the ability to skip thank would mean a lot to everybody I have even looked into asking. Other about how they feel about this new feature and they all agree with me again thank you
Xela. - The details make the difference.
For the fifth Star, and have the perfect app, would be better change/add some little things:
- “search” in the playlist;
When I downloaded the song and I hear them when I’m offline, the space “search” in the home page doesn’t work, and if I wanna hear one song, I can’t every time check a playlist of 500 or more songs to find it;
- the “delete a song” from the playlist, I think is most useful then the “add to library”, even cause they are already in the same library.
I mean, when you are hearing a song in the playlist, you slide your finger from the right to the left, and “added in the library” appear... but... I’m already on my library.
Instead to delete it I have to do 4 steps (like in most of the app, is easier sliding the finger and delete);
- when someone can’t find a song, would be nice to send you a feedback about the song that I couldn’t find, maybe also with the version, just to let you know that you miss some song, and maybe add it.
Obviously they are just my opinion, the App is amazing anyway.
Sorry for my bad english.
SimpliiEmbers - Amazing but it needs HEAPS of work
This app is amazing for any music lovers! Every song, right at your fingertips! But, there are lots of flaws in the system.
Starting off, ads. Yes, I know you have to pay your music artists and whatnot but why are there so many?! Staying on the note of ads, I once got one of those “30 mins of ad free music after this” ad and after I picked a song, I GOT AN AD!!! Please, please fix this. It’s VERY annoying
This is a small one for me or maybe some other people, I’m not sure. But as I’m still quite young and my dad has a family premium thing, he’s paying for me. As from the previous complaint, you can tell, it’s not working. Quit making my dad waste his money and quit giving me ads I’m not supposed to get!
Deejtaff - Some recommendations
Firstly, it would be good to have more choice on liking songs. When making personal playlists it would be better to have categories for “like” and then “favourite” or “really like”. iTunes has a five point grading system and that makes it easier to pick songs for playlists.
Secondly, when a playlist is on random play it’s better not to have consecutive songs from the same artist - it should jump more.
Thirdly, I would be prepared sometimes to pay extra to an artist I like. So could that payment option be built in?
Otherwise thanks for an excellent service.
Planes are godly - Suggestion for a feature
For the review: 5/5, does what it needs to, brilliant. Now, for a feature suggestion: now i know that there is shuffle playlist for listening to the playlist but i was thinking, what about a shuffle playlist that shuffles the actual songs around so when you play though the playlist, you have a different order of songs that play once throughout that whole time compared to listening to the same, for example, 50 songs within a shuffle playlist twice compared to the other however many. Would be very cool if this happened.
Al-2010 - Great app, pls fix homescreen
I love this app overall. After trialling it I now pay for the premium family subscription and we all love the easy access to a great range of music and the ability to create and share our playlists with each other.
It is a major annoyance, however, that it’s not possible to customise the home screen. The playlists that appear at the top appear to be a random selection (of my playlists), they certainly aren’t the ones I have listened to most frequently or most recently, which would be a far better default than some random ones. Please allow us to choose what to display on this most important screen!!
Terry K 007 - My opinion
I have been tempted to go premium over the last 3 years. What happened is that I agreed to the free access for 3 months but I did not proceed with the premium offer.
Now several years later I want to proceed but it will not accept my email address no matter how much I try. I think it is because I am on a black list due to me not taking up the offer after 3 months. I am quite keen to go premium but I am having no luck. No matter as I am using Stotify in its general form. Enjoying the way I can make up several play lists. I have one for sitting around the fire or one for training. I am a Outrigging paddler. Also I like Cuban music do I have a list for that.
CBro2018 - Recent update issues
Don’t get me wrong, this app is my go-to for music streaming and has been for near on 5 years or something.
Premium is also fantastic and 100% worth it in my opinion.
The latest update has moved the repeat button and the queue to a menu making it so much more inconvenient... The repeat function and being able to queue music and modify on-the-fly were two of the primary reasons for my constant premium subscription. I don’t understand why it moved? 😔 The addition of the favourite button to the now playing screen seems pointless.. If I want songs I like to be grouped together I’ll make a playlist.
Yagerwoof - Yo! Can we get “Limit Song Duration” Option
If possible, in the Playback settings, where you have the crossfade and gapless playback options, maybe there could be a “play the first 2 minutes of every song” option... or maybe some kind of “Limit Song Duration” option where you can just set ALL songs in a playlist for example to 1:30 minute each.
I just figured there’s a few songs out there that are relatively long and people might enjoy a few short jabs of different songs in the space of 10 minutes as opposed to only 2 songs in that time. That’d be dope!
Just an idea. Love the app guys! Cheers! 🙏
Mc.PNG - Reasonably good
The app isn’t inherently bad, in fact I like it a lot. The only problem I have is the fact that when you create a playlist, songs are automatically put into it based on what you listened to; which in theory sounds good but it doesn’t work properly. E.g I was looking for a song I thought I found it, but it wasn’t the song I was looking for, the song was an anime style song, I thought nothing of it. But when I looked in my playlist 10 new songs appeared in my playlist that I did not want to listen to at all and it took a while for me to change the recommended songs. I just think there should be an option to have an auto fill of songs for your playlist.
Ghazi.jazmine13 - 1 update
I think it would be really good and I know it would make me and lot of ppl happy if you could add a button or something to the app near a playlist (like near the buttons that let you share the playlist or the three dots they look like this “…” and you can press them) so basically add a button near every playlist where you can add there playlist to yours (so by doing that you would add all the songs to your playlist) so instead of having to waste time and press every single song or search them individually to add them to your playlist just press one button and your done so simple and easy please get back to me. 💖💖
But keeps on crashing - Comment section….?
Y’all app is legit mazing but you guys should add like a place or way to comment on people playlists or smth. It would be a cool and really different way of interacting and connecting with others, especially since a lot of people express themselves through music and I know I for make playlist just to express every little emotion I have. But yeha idk maybe even a dm system sorta thing, but yeha I feel being able to comment on people’s playlists would be amazing or putting an option to add your insta to your profile. Anyways thank for the cool app have a nice day you amazing human
The Original Lady B - Two songs does not equate to 30 minutes!
Good app but the advertising is getting ridiculous. I have to hear 3 or 4 ads to listen to 2 songs. So much for the “the next thirty minutes are ad free thanks to the following sponsor”. I’m happy to listen to ads if I’m not paying for a subscription but I’m finding myself turning the app off lately due to the volume of ads. Also, what’s with removing the auto play for ads? It’s annoying enough having to listen to 3 or 4 ads every 10 minutes but having to stop what I’m doing to play them so that I can keep streaming music is a real PITA. If you’re hoping to drive people towards paying for a subscription, you’re going the wrong way about it.
OblivionWarp - Great app, but a huge annoyance I have
I love this app so much, I have premium, and I use it basically every day. There is one problem I have with it though. When you save a few songs from an album, then go to the songs in your music, albums, it used to just show the songs you saved, with the option to go to the full album. Now, it just shows the full album, which is really annoying if you’re trying to download a few songs from one album. Now you have to download the whole album, which saves the whole album, then manually unsave each one you don’t want. This is stupid! Why can’t it just revert to the original, or at least have an option?!
W!11!4m - Fantastic!
Now then, the only let down is the whole “no ads after 30 seconds”. Like hey, great! But when I pick No Thanks, that is NOT an invitation to play the ad anyway. Also it used to be one ad then back to music, NOW THERES 3 LOTS OF 30 SECOND ADS THAT YOU CAN’T SKIP, CUZ F### THE POOR RIGHT? I can’t afford Premium, it is far too expensive ($148/year or $12/month? No thanks), so either fix the ad problem, or lower the price of Premium, even if it’s by $5.
Yes I get that you have to pay royalties to stream the music, but you’re a tri-billion dollar corporation.
Or I suggest a lower version of premium that removes ads, but is still online only or something like that, you know, for those who don’t want to go broke
Ebone0412 - Recent Update
Love the app and the music. Unfortunately would rather the previous version of editing a playlist where you could edit on the current screen of songs as well as the “are you sure” option rather than the new update that takes you to the top of the playlist (try mistakenly adding the wrong song to a 1000 song playlist, not cool). Also noticed the ‘same song in playlist’ pop up has been removed. Try checking out cool playlists and adding them to your own only to notice you’ve already got all the songs and now have to find and delete the double-ups. Love that you guys are trying out new things for the app but sadly it’s a thumbs down for the latest not-so-handy changes.
Allyw22 - Would recommend but ads are infuriatingly often
There are only two reasons why I didn’t rate 5 stars,, 1. If you don’t have premium you experience 2-4ads in between 5-10 songs so it gets really annoying and frustrating I ended up buying premium because I got so annoyed (so I guess the marketing strategy worked) 2. Often it lags a bit and I have to start and stop my music although it usually isn’t that large of a inconvenience. Overall it’s a app that I would recommend for free listening but would also recommend buying premium (there are many options for pricing and amount of users)
I just wanna play my music - Really like it! But there’s a small issue
I really like the app and I have the premium feature, but for some reason when I’m playing a song from my Liked Songs list, the next song is always automatically the song from the top of the list. It’s the same thing with my other playlists, when I start from a song that’s in the middle of the playlist, the next song starts from the very beginning.
It’s really annoying and it’s been happening for a while now, but hopefully it’ll be fixed before the next update!
Pletonix - Great but really annoying
It’s great we can listen to all the good songs for free, but my app has a glitch and it’s starting to get annoying. When I turn my phone off with the music (or leave it on and exit to another app) it will stop playing around halfway through, then I go back to check what happened and the song restarts. Because I can’t get the free premium because it needs your credit card details, I can’t go back to the part of the song I was at or skip it to the next one so it will stop. Another thing I don’t like is how it’s so frustrating to access the titles of the songs in your own playlists. Could you please look into the glitch?
NeonnLightt - Great music app
This app is great for what you get. Me I am a premium user so I have full access but people who can’t pay still get a good music streaming app. The $12 (AUD) it costs me is a good price to be able to download any music I want, not get annoyed at those pesky ads when I’m playing games and having it playing in that background and also being able to skip any songs at any time is also a massive bonus as well as every other feature with premium. The app with a normal account type is still good but with some faults. So overall the app itself is really good but you will have to pay monthly for full access and freedom which is a bummer but worth it.
Elliemeli - One problem
Ok so the app is not bad, it gives a good listening experience and all that but for the past two days the music has stopped all of a sudden and I am not able to turn it back on from my Lock Screen. I have to go back into the app press play and then it happens again. That bug needs to be fixed. Also, on numerous occasions my screen will freeze as a background but you can still look through albums. It can get very confusing. In future to anyone who is looking at this review, please look at reviews before buying something or downloading an app. It can save you a lot of money.
Gajsbfieifyb55578393 - Capability to reorder playlist lost
The capability to re order the playlist whilst the music is playing has been lost in the recent updates (the now playing page)
Now if you move a song up the list, it will move but if you click out of the screen and back in it readjusts to its original position. I find if you are moving it in one drag it will move to the new position, but if you are moving something from way down the list and have to keep dragging, releasing to scroll the screen and drag again. It will only move to the first position it was dragged to - not the final. Hard to explain but the function used to work and in the last few months has stopped working

Theboyfaded - Love it
Had Spotify since it came out I love it
Ninja 987655273 - Before and after
Before spotify was so great I love it now its complete trash I can't even listen to my playlist because it would put random sont in it.... change it its trash
Pandaas7777777 - No more hold for preview?!?!?
Can't press and hold song to listen to a short preview of the song anymore?! Wish I can undo update :c
And I want the "card" view that properly used up the horizontal space on an iPad by showing multiple columns.
Calvin Hobbes 13 - Great App!
Itemmaster - Most recent update ruined the entire app
Now I can’t listen to all songs I have saved by an artist... or shuffle all the songs I’ve saved... this is a terrible update that has so far ruined Spotify for me. Considering switching to apple music
Slenderman'sproxy - Dislike the extra songs
It’s okay and all but I don’t like how it adds extra songs you might like...and I can’t skip or go back to songs I want...
Hab it - New update
The new update is terrible. No filters, can’t access library by song title, artist, or album. What were they thinking!
Lonewolfe19ez - Hate this app
I hate how you guys throw in random songs into my playlists. I wouldn’t recommend this app to my worst enemy.
Kjhgftgghy - Terrible now
Last week this worked great; search an artist and have their latest release at the top and an easy to find list of all their albums. Now, nothing useful. No newest release, no list of albums. Just the top songs and bunch of random things the artist appears on. How is any of that helpful? As someone who likes to find and save whole albums from artists I like you’ve now made this app completely useless.
Cringelord74 - Apple music is better
The app has so many ads and you can only shuffle your songs instead of being able to switch around songs without premium. And you only get 6 skips an hour. It’s like you’re begging for money.
PhilFreud14 - Spotify
It's perfect way better than Apple Music
#hatedemi - It’s now bs and not worth it.
If you don’t have premium it’s the worst music app there is. You use to be able to pick a song and actually listen to it. Now you have to shuffle the artist and hope you get the right song. You only get 6 skips an hour?? You guys are sell outs like everyone else. I thought the ads were meant to balance out the free subscriptions but now it’s just a joke and there is still ads
Schadenfroh847 - Spotify
Albums go missing, songs are missing from albums. I’d rather stick to cds.
Gabe.J - LYRICS BUTTON
BRING LYRICS BUTTON BACK GODDAMNIT THEN I’LL PUT FIVE STARS!! 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
Kdsndjnfnddkdn - Why
My music will just randomly stop playing at sometimes, it’s not the pause it just stops
RoboRomo - Update ruined the experience
Latest update doesn’t allow for sorting saved songs by artist. Also artists aren’t alphabetical anymore they are by “recommended” super annoying for anyone who listens to songs by artist.
Hilkywood - Hours wasted
For some reason I was playing Def Leppard to get entries into contest. The songs are not playing in order and stop and does not play next one. I’ve lost so many points being frustrated for the last 4 hours playing and still not getting points. What the hell is going on I have great progress till today with tunespeak,.
Nggjfh - Commercials
Too many commercials!
JJZ 79 - Spotify sucks!!!
It’s a well known fact that your app drains the battery life at a very rapid pace!! No secret about that!! Total garbage!! Waste of money. & yet this is a well known fact Spotify does nothing to fix the problem!! But you’ll gladly take money from people for this garbage service!! You people should be embarrassed by your total lack of respect for the customers that are paying money & lining your pockets with cash!! Absolute trash!! & I’ll let this be known whenever the debate arises whether to pay for Apple Music or the by far inferior garbage that is Spotify!!
Pisaform - Spotify downhill
The free app used to be functional. Now a piece of crap. Can't play what I want to hear. Crappy songs added to playlists. I deleted it. All designed to force me to get the pay version. Nope. Not after this.
Deanna0001 - Glitching out.
The app has been turning off and pausing the music when I don’t have my phone on. Like I’ll be playing music then all of a sudden it stops playing and when I open my phone, the app will be off and I have start again.
ChristhGuy - My opinion
This is the best app
Aristotle7867 - glitchy
it used to be a good app but now every time i pause my music and turn off my phone the music starts playing again. it takes forever for the app to load up. it says my music is playing on the lock screen when it’s not, or vice versa. just so glitchy in general. also hate how the songs in your library can’t be organized in any way you want, it’s hella cluttered bothers me. the playlists they make are fire and the colour scheme is nice but that’s really it. they also don’t have a lot of music
Highlandpegases - awful
get apple music.
Tittanlord16 - Please fix
It’s hard listening to music rn it will stop playing randomly kinda kills a workout please fix this quickly
Simply_victoria - fix this pls
since yesterday my songs randomly stopped playing at around 10 seconds or not at all. it wouldnt let me skip songs or anything. the issue stopped happening after i stopped using the app for a bit but now it’s happened again. i tried redownloading the app but now it wont even let me log in and says theres an issue. it wont let me get into the settings of the app to try and fix the problem either.. please fix this :/
Milf god - it glitches out
30 seconds into playing my playlist in just glitches out? This has happened many times.
PangleChing - Music keeps turning off randomly
My music always turns off randomly when i turn off my phone.
Mikacow - Can’t even listen to one song
I paid for Spotify premium but it keeps shutting down, I can’t even get through one song without it shutting down
Tori-oria - Overhaul is awful
The recent UI change makes Spotify basically unusable. Lost almost everything, can’t find anything anymore, and will have to reorganize my entire library.
Exeoon - Should go back to old update
Should go back to old update where we can find are songs though the abc
_b.e.n_ - Update killed it
New update removed any useful artist or album view and made going through my library impossible. Gonna have to cancel Spotify now
Clavender17 - New update ruined my library
Now all the songs in every album I saved are in my library, completely messed up my music now I have to skip all the songs I don't like in albums, this update is the worst, it saves the songs in albums I don’t not want there, I didn’t save to specific songs in my library for a reason! I think I’m going to have to change to Apple Music if they don’t change back
Becca Boo 1234 - It’s not worth the price
I had Spotify premium for close to a year and for $10 a month only one person could listen at a time, and several times it wouldn’t let me play my music without internet even though I payed. A couple times it also deleted my whole playlist. I think I’m going to do the switch over to Apple Music.
Jjjjjjjjjjjkjjkkkkk - Misinformation issue with Spotify
Stop allowing misinformation, ready to cancel the account
Dndlepdkehndkzkjsksjjjssdxx - Plate
Je trouve l'application pas mal plate parce que de 1- Le Premium vaut la peine mais est vraiment trop cher a la longue!. 2- Quand on a pas premium on peux presque rien faire même pas "skipper" les chansons qu'on aime pas! 3- Sa vous tentait pas de faire sa vrm plus simple? 4- Srx enlevez le mode premium parce que sans lui on peux vraiment rien faire!!!!
5- J'aimerais vraiment pouvoir mettre une chanson mais j'peux pas parce qu'il faut ABSOLUMENT premium qui est en passant 9.99$ par MOIS!?
Ihatemusical.lysomuch - i guess
it’s ok. it’s BEEN ok for the 3 years ive been using it. would have been better if people could just get premium features for free it doesn’t make any sense why people have to pay. update is wack not sure if ill even be using anymore because it’s way too confusing
Kianoosh - It was great (5 years of use) till today!
The app randomly stops playing the next song (it plays for a few a few seconds and then stops). Which is annoying. I can’t seem to find any solution online and the only thing left to do is the much dreaded “delete, reinstall, redownlod all the songs again!”
I have nearly 57GB of downloaded songs, and there’s no way to make the app remember what I had. So I’m bound to leave things out. Thanks Spotify
Sn0wed1n - Not working
I’ve had Spotify premium for a long time now and been a big fan. For whatever reason it just doesn’t work well on iPhone anymore. Regardless of whether it’s streaming or downloaded I get about 5 seconds before a song stops. Doesn’t seem to be a fix. Sad but going to have to cancel and try something else.
All_thenicknames_aretaken - New Update way less functional
Hate the filter mechanism for the iOS app that has playlists, artists, albums of your library jumbled together, who would ever want to look at those all at the same time?? On the desktop app if i click on an artist from the artist page in my library, and then click on the arrow to go back a page, it takes me to the top of the page everytime. It used to go back to where i had scrolled down to in the artists page, which is what i'd like it to still do
Lmac46 - Keeps bugging out
For the past month or so, my Spotify app crashes constantly. Super annoying. Every 30-40 seconds it is crashing and stopping my music. Can’t even get through a full song, it’s embarrassing. Very annoying when I’m driving (can’t go on my phone and go back onto Spotify) and annoying when I’m playing music on the speakers for my friends/family, because it just cuts out every few seconds and it’s super embarrassing and kills the vibe.
The updates dont even fix this issue ugh.
Also when I’m in the middle of working out, I can’t even get through a set because the music stops and its such a buzzkill. This is killing my gains bro.
I’m going to apple music, and y’all should too.
What’s the point of PAYING for an app that wont even work?
Doug362578a - Enabling Antivaxxers.
Spotify, as a platform, needs to reign in antivax misinformation. Lives are at stake.
Mika._ar - Deceiving ..
They’re only thinking in terms of profit, you can’t listen music without having to pay money really sad
Sleeg - Playlists Default to Shuffle
You update this app every week, yet you can’t fix the playlists defaulting to shuffle. If I’m driving I can't mess around with settings. I want my playlists to play in the order I want.
That's Gay Buddy - Can’t listen.
One star. Spotify is great! Is what I would say if I could use it. IDK if it’s just me but I would like to listen to the whole song. Shuffle doesn’t shuffle. It goes to a random song and goes from there. NOT COOL!
Briel34 - Messed up playlists
Spotify was fine in general. Lots of ads, couldn’t play songs you wanted or skip the ones you didn’t, but I still dealt with it and thought that it was an okay app overall. That was at least until I stopped being able to open my own playlists that I created and see what was actually in them. I genuinely can’t tell if this is a bug or a new feature that got reserved for premium users, but either way it’s frustrating and makes me want to delete the app. If it doesn’t get changed soon I probably will. If you’re looking to use Spotify, wait to see if they actually make their app the slightest bit functional before you do.
M8ter06 - This sucks
What’s with not being able to see my own playlist now
Mqwerty67& - Technical Issues
Music keeps stopping all of a sudden
😐😬 - Spotify fix your app. It keeps crashing.
Spotify is great when it’s not crashing literally every time I turn my phone off. This is incredibly frustrating because I’m paying for premium and can’t even get the benefits of listening to a song for more than 30 seconds without the app crashing because of its own problems. Please fix this.
Dark Psyren - I have very little nice things :/
I've had Spotify for years, it had NEVER worked properly nor as advertised.
I got hit with the bugged out version that doesn't work on my 3 iPhones..So I came into possession of a Google phone JUST for Spotify.
It won't connect to my workplace internet(Even though YouTube will work!), it won't let me listen offline for more than 2hours EVEN though the offline Premium version said I had 29days to re-login. Nope, no more than 2 hours. Ever.
I have top of the line internet personally, Spotify will barely work properly on that either.
My google phone will be writing a similar review.
If you're an iPhone user and you have non-stop issues like I've had, I recommend Apple Music instead. Same price and it works...unlike Spotify.
