Hanshensbd - You need SoundCloud
It’s by far the best music and created platform out there yes there are flaws but not many every week you get a personal list of songs recommended for you from your listening history so you can discover more music and Artist you may like unlike other music platforms you can upload to and you can support small artists to help them grow it shows you the other side of music you have been missing out on my taste in music has changed so much for the better because of SoundCloud. You can find it or songs from popular artists today and see how they started you can’t get that anywhere else. It’s so easy to find the music you like and it will help you grown as a person to. I been using it for 1 and a half now and it gets better every day the best thing is it’s free and SoundCloud go is only 5 bucks it’s worth it. So all in all if you want to grown as a listener or start your career use SoundCloud.
_shannon - Playlist Organization
SoundCloud is great but there are a lot of glitches with playlists that need to be fixed. Trying to rearrange your songs in your own playlists is a hassle, it takes multiple tries to get the song to permanently move because it often just reverts back to where it was right after you moved it. I always have to close then reopen the open to check and make sure my songs moved to where I wanted them to. Also the icons you can upload for your playlist cover never seem to update unless you actually open up and go into the playlist. This doesn’t seem to be much of an issue on the desktop but on mobile my set display cover is never what I picked, it’s usually automatically always the same picture as the first song in that playlist. This gets really irritating because if I want people to check out my playlists, the first thing they see is the display image and I would rather them see the one I chose than of the picture from someone’s track! Lastly, please incorporate the option to move around your playlists. I have playlists from months ago that are at the way end of my profile and would rather have some of those at the forefront of my profile when you visit it.
Really hope you consider ideas to fix these problems. Otherwise great app and I’ll always be a user.
Datboi667 - Very good but some issues
So I’ve been using this app for the past 3 years and it has been amazing, but somethings I would wish could change as well as some issues I’ve ran into. The first thing is the UI, if I type in a song and I spell it wrong I wish it could put up something close to that and not say “ No Results”. Second thing is that I wish when you went into your saved playlist that you would start at the bottom or the newest song and not the top, but those I can live with so I own an IPhone X, I’m not showing off or anything but this thing has amazing speakers and for some reason when I play a song it crackles and pops which is soooo annoying, I’m an audio geek and I can not listen to a song when it cracks and pops it’s just infuriating. And the last thing is something that I’ve wanted for so long is to be able to post songs from your phone because not all of us own computers, and or laptops but the option to be able to post songs from your phone would be awesome. I hope you bring these ideas in consideration and hopefully are able to fix that bug but anyways I love this app and this is the only way to listen to songs that are posted by non singers or artists.
Senpaibuns89🎵 - SoundCloud Says Something’s Wrong with my Email
Hello, if you are reading this, please do. I want to tell you people that... Well... I don’t know how to start, but... When I was using SoundCloud one day, it randomly signed me out when I was just listening to a song. And I tried signing back in on my iPhone, but it said, “Error: Sorry, we couldn’t sign you in. Please check that you have already created an account and have entered the correct account details.” But it was the exact, and only email I’ve ever used on SoundCloud. I tried doing this a couple of more times, and it still kept saying it didn’t exist/wrong email details. I kept trying to sign back in for weeks, and it still doesn’t work. I tried to do “I forgot my password”, and when I inserted my email, it said something something went wrong. It’s not the password, or it would have said I put the wrong password. SoundCloud, please fix this. It says my email is wrong. And I am not making another account. I already have over 50 followers, and I don’t want to start all over again. Thank you, and other reviewers, for reading this. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Happy Summer!
LittleJess27 - I did not give permission to renew this APP
I got a free trial. When that free trial was up, or even before it was up I removed it!! So why a month or 2 later when I buy an Apple pay card are you thieves going to charge my Apple Pay card? I don’t even have this app downloaded to my phone. I already reported it & I want my money back. This app was junk anyway. No offense but it even gives directions to go by to renew it. I never did. App is not even on my phone & they took it upon themselves to take $5-6 off of my Apple pay card. Now I have to wait 48 hours to see if they will refund my moneys? I’m poor so every dollar counts. I notice I’d 1$ is missing. I reported it & if I do not get a refund I will be contacting an attorney. Yes! Over 5.99! Why? Because I got that card to use TJ buy more I cloud, & not to pay for an app I am not even using nor is is downloaded to my phone anymore. Wanting to all, do not download this app with the free trial. Because even if you cancel it & remove from your phone as soon as you get money on any card you are using, they will take money out!!!! I want a refund & I want it ASAP! I can’t even enjoy my phone because I can’t even put cash more I cloud because of this!! Can’t even do the update on my phone I need to do because I there’s no space or GB’s to do it! Could do it if I could pay for more iCloud
JayZuckerman - Very great but some difficulties
Hello I’ve been a SoundCloud user since 2012 but didn’t really get into it until 2013. I would like to say SoundCloud is fantastic. However, I have problems listening to music without it cutting off every 30 seconds. Then once I press play, the same thing keeps happening. Also, as someone that makes music, I hate that there’s a pay wall behind me seeing simple things as who’s listening all over the world. Why should I by SoundCloud Go just to see things like that? The least I’m buying it for is playing music offline, that’s about it. Aside from that, I feel like SoundCloud Go is just not even worth it. I liked using SoundCloud until y’all introduced SoundCloud Go. Which basically limited us from listening to big artist on there giving us 30 seconds of a song just so we can buy that pay wall to listen to a full song we can listen to on other music apps. Not to mention the spotlight on our profiles. Are you seriously going to make us pay for that? That’s like paying $5 just to pin a tweet on Twitter. All I’m saying is I love SoundCloud, but I can’t stand it when they’re trying to beat around the bush just to make us pay for something.
Kyo Byboshi - Great
I been on SoundCloud for at least 5 and a half years and it’s awesome. There was at times bugs where I request songs to be in a playlist but rarely it crashes while doing so. Another thing is that there is a gimmick where there is songs that have like a “star” symbol or a premium song where you have to pay to listen for monthly cost. But not only you can listen to these premium songs, you can put download playlist for out of service ordeals. I would say the major downfall for this streaming service app is that I have to type the right perfect word for a song title, artist, or even a album in the search bar. If I misspelled a word, it would give me a totally different result of music or even no result at all. Therefore, I have to make sure to make more of a tension to spell the word of the song and such throughly. But other than that, I’ve been using the app at first free but I decided to pay monthly because I’ve been traveling more often now so it makes since of downloading songs. I recommend using this app. I’ve been previously using grooveshark until they shut down in 2015 then I switched over to SoundCloud.
CFC1025 - 🤦🏽♂️
I have been a Soundcloud Go user for several years now. I have no problem paying for this subscription because I love this app, however there are issues which I feel if addressed, could make this app much better. For years I have dealt with tracks out of my likes being deleted or removed. I understand many of these tracks are leaked and therefore are not supposed to be on the app, however this is not the case for all songs that are removed. There is nothing worse than wanting to listen to a song and not being able to find it. Out of my 1,500 + likes I cannot remember the names of all songs I like. I believe if these tracks are deleted it would be very helpful that instead of them simply being taken down, they should still exist in your likes, even if you can’t listen to them. This way, I’m not really losing my music. I’d still be able to find the songs elsewhere, it’s just so frustrating having music disappear. Please address this issue. Also fix your search algorithms!! Neither of these issues seem like they would be difficult to address. Please fix for the sake of users!! Makes me rethink paying my subscription.
Esl_209 - Sad
I’ve had this app for around 3 years and I had around 300 sounds that I had in my liked section because all of them wouldn’t fit in a playlist and I was okay with it. During those 3 years I loved it because I like underground rappers starting from SoundCloud and rising to the top and I would always search for new artist just so I wouldn’t have the same music as everybody else and I’d always show my friends and they’d always ask who it is and for me that’s a compliment cause putting someone on a new artist always makes me feel like that boy. But anyways a couple days ago when I was going to show my friend a couple new songs I found I went to the like section and all of my music that I had liked were gone. All those 3 years of searching for new music that little to no one has heard before done the drain and y’all don’t know how sad I felt cause now I’m never going to get to listen to those songs again because I dug really deep to find them and I’m not going to waste my time searching for it again. Soundcloud staff members, if you happen to see this please pleaseeee let me know if there’s anyway you guys can get my music back that’s all I want😭
Toneytone24 - Unfortunately, just not worth it anymore.
A couple years ago I would’ve given 10/5 stars if I could. But nowadays, there’s so many advertisements that it makes listening not even worth it. I completely understand the reason for advertisements & for a long time, I could put up with them. However, I just used SoundCloud for the first time in maybe a year. THERE IS 2 ADS BETWEEN EACH TRACK.
Back when I used to use SoundCloud for all my music, I’d have to put up with an occasional ad or two every 4-6 songs. But now it’s simply unbearable. I’m not exaggerating when I say I just logged onto SoundCloud & the first 4 tracks I played, I got 2 ads in between each. It was frustrating after the 2. Annoying after the 3rd. Infuriating after the 4th & I didn’t stick around for the 5th.
I’ve been using audiomack as of late. I’d recommend that to anyone who doesn’t have music specifically on SoundCloud. I know that’s the reason I used SoundCloud so much. A lot of the underground artists would start on SoundCloud and their music would then find its way to other platforms. But I just can’t do the ads anymore.
If you suggest paying for SoundCloud, why would I? The search engine all the way to the user experience is just terrible. Anyway, just my opinion. Happy listening, all!
Music computer guy works great - App terrible interface but desktop great! Make them the same!
The app is so terrible compared to the desktop version. The searches never come up the they do on desktop, I never see my page with my spotlight 5 tracks when I open it up, i have to scroll forever just to get to what is normally right there on my desktop.... the app gets ZERO. As an artist and some one and I are talking about music and who I like and what I sound like I’d like to be able to easily show them or find the name of the musician I was listening too earlier that day etc. I have more specific complaints but these are the ones that come to mind. The ‘usability’ and ease of interface is just terrible on the app version. I gave an 8 or something for the recommendation of SoundCloud to people but , it would have been a 10 if the stupid interface on the app wasn’t so clunky. The two interfaces (desk and app) should look and work essentially the same. A girl told me it was impossible for her to figure out how to repost my song on the app version. she gave up in frustration. In some way that reflects on me and I lost a precious repost. Also I’d like to be able to link my two accounts , even if it is just slightly more a month to have both on premium. That last note is not about the app obviously. Thanks for listening.
Baconherobt - Mobile App Bugs
I’ve been experiencing two separate issues. The first one happenes when I’m streaming SoundCloud via blue tooth and the mobile app gets stuck in a loop. It plays the song then an ad and then the same song again and the same ad. So far the only way I have figured out to cancel the loop is to restart the app. The second issue I’m experiencing is (and it’s fairly difficult to explain) when ever I create a station from a song I like on the mobile app, it creates a station but down at the bottom of the screen where it shows the playlist for the station, it queues up some where between two and seven copies of the same song. All the copies of the song play at one time, but audio wise, only one plays. This problem does not stop when I close and restart the app, and it seems to happen to any song, even ones that are not in my “Likes”. I really enjoy SoundCloud, and it is my first choice when deciding what platform to listen to music on and it’s always disappointing to discover a bug. That being said, thank you for taking the time to read this.
TInsaneF - It’s okay, but...
So I don’t really write reviews, but I have an issue or two (maybe more) with the app that really bugs me. One: the pause/play button on the control center/lock screen. I tap the pause button, but the music keeps playing anyways. I have to soft reset my phone each time, and it’s exhausting. Two: sometimes my music starts to crackle. It’s rare, but it’s so annoying when it does happen. Three: when I add a song to a playlist, it adds it all the way down to the bottom instead to the top, and when you have a long playlist, hitting edit at the top, scrolling all the way to the bottom, and waiting for the song to be dragged all the way up is also exhausting. Four: sometimes the time stops, so the song will be going, but it’ll say something like 0:10 when it’s just about over. And to fix it, I have to drag the dot to a different time, hoping it’ll land on something close, but when you don’t know what second it’s on, it’ll mess up the song, and ruin the listening experience. Other than that, it’s easy to use. But please fix these four problems.
RealDougtheDonkey - Lots of minor/medium problems
SoundCloud is fine. I like that it’s free. There are some songs, like Elise by The Greeting Committee, that used to be free but now require a premium for you to listen to. I’d prefer if more were free, but beggars can’t be choosers. Anyways, I don’t even know if that decision is up to SoundCloud or the individual creators.
There are some more glaring problems, though. For one, when I try to scroll down quickly, the app gets really laggy, shows me one frame a second, and scrolls down incredibly slow. It’s infuriating when I’m trying to go low down in my likes songs.
Another issue is finding when a song was posted or looking at its description. Both of these are impossible on the SoundCloud app. It seems that the developers only care about the computer version of SoundCloud, when it is much, much better as a mobile app. I have no clue why you would focus on the computer more. It’s not like I can carry a computer in my pocket while it’s connected to headphones or anything.
Also, when someone replies to one of my comments I’d like to be notified. This one is just a small suggestion.
I usually like the app, but it needs major, major polishing. Please update it!
Shoku ｡(*^▽^*)ゞ - Amazing! But just one problem..
SoundCloud is an amazing app to use! I don’t really mind the Ads because I don’t really have any money to upgrade so I just stay with the regular SoundCloud instead of SoundCloud go. I’ve used this app for about 5 years now but since this year, I’ve started to notice a problem whenever I search for any music. Every time I search for music, I start to listen to it without liking it (because sometimes I forget to do that). But every time the song ends, or I try to look for a different version of the song, it always automatically skips to a different type of song that’s not under the title I searched for. This has been a constant issue for a few months so I decided to delete the app and try again, then it started to work like usual. But now, just a few seconds ago, the same problem popped up again. I don’t know if it’s a glitch in the system or just something that was included in the new update. But whatever it is, I’m not so happy with it. Other than that, that’s all I really have to say for the app whatsoever.
Switt_HZ - Fix the app
The following is complaints about the mobile Soundcloud:
Soundcloud is a good music app, not to lie. The ads are horrifyingly long, especially when you get a 30 second ad that you cannot skip. I can last a 15 second ad, but the ads are not skippable. Also another thing is if your new and you try to do the verification thing on mobile, it is possible the email won’t send at all. I’ve seen this on many other phones. Also, editing playlists most rearranging the songs don’t save until you repeatedly do it. Editing the name of the playlist I haven’t found anyway yet since. Another reason, are the visual bugs. Sometimes when loading in a song after an ad or so, the ad information shows up, but the song still plays. You can’t see the song until you close out of the ad and/or song. Also, a suggestion I’d like to make is you can verify your email whenever you want to, not while you’re editing your profile. Not trying to hate the app, it is pretty good, the main problems are the playlists bugs, and ads.
Kejoca - Love it but latest update has issues
FIX REQUIRED: Latest update has songs making cracking/popping noise when playing music. Happens whether online streaming or playing offline saved songs. Not HW issue--only seems to happen on this app. Please troubleshoot!
Recommendation: A repeat button for mobile (single and playlist).
Otherwise, SoundCloud is awesome. This is my #1 music discovery tool. I have discovered so many new genres and artists I had never heard before using this app, and I love that the artists are free to post ANYTHING instead of only their studio-ready work. Sometimes the experimental stuff is what is most interesting. The freedom of musical constraint is what makes SoundCloud really the best streaming service to me without the overhead of video (like another streaming service I also use to discover music), and it also gives me control in what I want to hear. The recommendations have been spot-on (again, introducing me to new music I've fallen in love with), and I hope SoundCloud continues the way it's been and improves with our feedback!
BobNevans - Web is web - App is App
First and foremost: Thank you Soundcloud, you are brilliant! You have somehow managed to accomplish the impossible: create a global platform for musical expression for artists who otherwise would never be heard AND deliver that to we humans hungry for food-medicine-energy that IS original music without bowing to cavalier monetization. Haven't a clue how you surpassed Apple, Google, Pandora and the rest save only for how amazingly perfect a team you have created. You are the Shaolin Monks of Music. You ARE the revolution. That said, you new App is genius! Crisp, clean, low footprint, perfect maximization of OS and platform utilization and the aesthetic attention to detail is both subtle and sublime. Outstanding accomplishment!
As far as the whiners who confuse web with apps and have never coded a line - ignore them; this version of you app reflects the excellence and vision that guides your exquisite and critically necessary presence on earth. Gratitude sisters & brothers - inspired use of tech & heart - love this app!
Souple's soup - I like it for music, I guess.
I think what truly ruins the experience is the same culprit that could ruin any music app, ads are one of the main reasons I dislike using this app, they’re long, repetitive, and after a while become very annoying. It doesn’t help that the only ads you get are anti-smoking, I get it, smoking is bad, guys. But can we get some different ads, maybe instead of interrupting the music experience, just do pop-ups, at least get some new shorter ads. And don’t give us the option to skip ads if the ad ends before the skip timer, its infuriating. The timer will be 30 seconds and the ad will end just before. Don’t give us the option if we can’t use it.
This has become more of a review on anti-smoking ads. I don’t smoke and I find these ads annoying, they’re deliberately unnerving. They don’t make me thinking “stop smoking” they make me think “ew why, I don’t even smoke why I’m I forced to endure this”.
Besides this I think there’s a genre for everyone here, and you can find some nice music here that you can’t hear on the radio, though I’m mostly here for the soundclown memes.
Aar7n - Advertisement Interuptuons
I don’t have a problem with ads, the app has to make money somehow but it would be nice to be able to do more while ads are playing; such as: being able to look at other songs/ pick the next song while ads are playing. Sometimes it will auto play to a song I didn’t want to listen to in the first place so when I skip it after the ad is done I’m now one song closer to the next ad... Another thing I’ve noticed is if your phone is in sleep mode during an ad it will continue playing with no video but if your browsing while an ad comes on you are forced to play the video with it and exiting the app or enabling sleep mode will pause the ad forcing you to play the video to continue. This feature can be very frustrating if your trying to play music at work or are multi tasking and also eats up unnecessary battery life. All that said I love SoundCloud and all it’s other features just wanted to give some honest feedback for future improvements/updates :)
TheDemon_Adelaide - not horrible, but not perfect
there are many minor issue about the app, like how you cant re arrange your liked songs and have to add every song to a playlist to control their positions (which i dont understand why thats even a thing). But the main 2 issues i have with this is the amount of times the app refreshes after its opened, to the point where it becomes the norm, and the amount of ads it give. The app constantly gives me ads in between songs and ruin the vibe, i could be listening to some sentimental music at high volume then get cut off by some guy talking about a brand new car i never knew even existed, exploading my ears by how loud the ads are, and not only that, sometimes it gives me 2 ads back to back, both 30 whole seconds, making me waste an entire minute listening to ads when i could of been done with the second song in the queue. many problems occur in the app, but other than that, the music is crispy, they give a variaty of different music every week, and it can play in the background. Its a fairly good app but its not perfect.
Ninja_Jesuz - Needs some additions but best way to find new music
Everyone knows all the good things of SoundCloud like growing new artists so fast and helping people find new music. I’m gonna give a few suggestions for it though. Things that I want in the app; the computer version is great, but you know we all want music on the go and most people use their phones. As a producer with my own page I would like the messages to be on the phone and comments and more interaction with my fans on my phone. Everyone knows there is bugs, but I’m sure the SoundCloud team is fixing them now. I’d also suggest maybe better pages for artists. I find it may be hard for new users to get used to it. It’s a little big maybe scale it down to fix more on screen. Anyways, great app! Suggest it if you love music :)
Update: right after writing this I discovered SoundCloud Pulse which I think is a great app. Though I’d still like to see you being able to respond to DMS, have social media links on artist pages, and have descriptions on artists pages.
Bekehehb - Soundcloud is okay... but could use work in certain areas!
soundcloud is great i’ve always loved it but there’s so many songs that i can’t listen to because i don’t pay money every month??? there’s other apps i could download for music where i can listen to any song i want to, all of my friends and everyone i’ve talked to about it say that they don’t use soundcloud for this reason. my loyalty for soundcloud lies deep but i’m getting really annoyed every time i fall in love with a song and can’t put it on my playlist. i know for a fact that if this changed, so many more people would use soundcloud. or at least drop the monthly price down, i bet a large percentage of people that use soundcloud are 14-25 years old... people at this age generally don’t make as much money as the average person yet- due to being in high school and only having a part time job, or in college with a part time job trying to pay off student loans. not only would it make people happy, but it might be good for soundcloud’s benefits too!!!
Calyde44 - Great Music App!
This app is really great for studying, and doesn’t require a subscription just to use like other music apps do. Although there is a SoundCloud Go+ subscription to unlock more creator features and listen to premium tracks, the base experience is enough for small time creators and casual listeners. One feature I would love implemented is the ability to rearrange playlists that you’ve either created or saved. I like everything to be organized, and sometimes scrolling down to an old playlist I still use often, would be better served at the top of my list. One bug I’ve also noticed, is that sometimes the comments don’t appear, when opening the comment window. Sometimes two or three comments are listed by the little text bubble icon, but pulling up the comments just tells you that “this track doesn’t have any comments.” Apparently it’s been an issue for awhile, so I assume it will be fixed sometime soon. Thanks for reading!
Big boobie Bertha - Pls change this one thing
I always used SoundCloud and it’s been what I use to listen to music since 8th grade and now I’m a year out of school. It’s always been a really cool platform and i don’t plan on stop using it. But there’s one thing that bothers me. VIDEO ADS. If an ad comes on while your on the app maybe u were jus on there to pick a different song and a video ad comes on, if u get out of the app the ad stops and u can’t play it to get to your music the only way u can listen to it and get to your song is by staying in the app as the whole ad plays. PLEASEE change this. It gets really annoying when I’m doin something while listening to music and then when I want to change a song get an ad then I gotta sit there and actually watch the ad to get to my song. I don’t mind just listening to it in the background of what I’m doin but actually having to sit Thru it is a bruh moment. Please make these ads able to play in the background of whatever your doing
Other_sans - Obnoxious, but usable.
Ok, never thought I would write one of these, but I need to set this straight, just in case I’m not crazy.
I love soundcloud, I really do. I’ve been using it for ages and it’s one of the only music apps that lets you stream underground music instead of mainstream music, of which I listen to more often. However, it was definitely better before. Not sure when, but years ago I used SoundCloud ad free without payment. It was awesome, it really was, and ads came up maybe one a day. However, one day, more and more ads came up, however I could skip them after like five seconds, so it was fine. But recently, around a couple months, I’ve been getting 30 second non skippable ads that come up after every like two songs. This is absolutely outrageous. I don’t mind an ad or two, but this many is just awe full. If you are going to throw ads at me like this, use banners. Really. And if you still can’t do THAT, at least make the ads easily skippable, and definitely not 30 seconds.
No one is going to see this I’m guessing but I had to vent.
30852251888 - Disappointed but holds a place in my heart
I love SoundCloud coz I’ve been using it literally since elementary school, but it’s gone down hill. First, when you shuffle your playlist, it’s like the app has pre made shuffle lists from your playlist so it plays the same songs in the same order. I noticed this way too much so I tested this by writing down the sounds that would play, then a few days later I’d shuffle my list and it matched. That’s really dumb and annoying and I don’t understand why that’s a feature, if my playlist being shuffled like that is simply by chance then that’s crazy, but if it’s the app then why? Second, ads: before I didn’t mind the ads, but now when using the mobile app if an ad plays while you’re on the app, you’re forced to watch/skip the ad because it won’t play off the app in the background. That was not a thing a few years ago, why SoundCloud ): y’all are the OG and the prime spot for finding new artists and got exclusively unique songs from artists so I’ll always love the app but these reasons have caused me to switch to Apple Music <\3
67288)))$:&@)(5ggffffhhhhsss - Casting Music Button is Very Broken
Much of my SoundCloud music listening is done through casting music to my multiple chrome cast supported speakers throughout my home the button in the upper right hand corner used to cast music is so difficult to press! I tap on it about 15 times before it recognizes that I’m trying to tap on it, instead of having it think I’m pressing around it (which causes my music to pause and play over and over again)
I’m also unable to adjust the volume on my speakers when connected through chrome cast by using the ‘volume up’ and ‘volume down’ buttons located on the side of my phone. I instead have to use the remote for each of my speakers to do so. I’ve used other music applications that allow me to cast music to my chrome cast supported speakers, that allow me to use my phone to adjust the volume on the speakers using the side buttons on my phone.
The last issue is that the music player for SoundCloud doesn’t appear on my phone when it’s locked. I’m not sure why this is?
I complain too much dont i - Almost perfect
I love soundcloud, and use it every day. I fall asleep to a playlist I've made, and use it during the day. However, there are a few things that need to be improved. First off, there is no sleep timer. This would be really helpful for me and others. Secondly, I listen to a lot of older music, for example, The Beatles. However, there are very few Beatles songs on soundcloud. I think this should be changed. It's not just The Beatles either. There are other artists as well, but that's what came off the top of my head. Last but not least, there are some songs that you can only listen to live versions of. For example, "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. I find the cheering before and after these songs that are or used to be pretty popular annoying and I'm probably not the only one. Other than these things and loading times every once in a while (which I understand), this app is amazing and I love it so much. Please improve these issues, thank you so much! 😊🤞🏻
Where's my water (free) - Lovin it, but a few issues tho
I’ve been using SoundCloud for quite while, and, I’ve got to say, this is the very best music application I’ve ever used. However, I spotted some issues with its latest update. I know that you’ve gotten rid of the tab for the music thingy (idk what to call it) and it’s now much easier to access now that it’s on the bottom, but when I tried moving around all of my music, instead it just brang that up and so it made it really annoying and difficult to edit. One other thing I found was that it never automatically replayed my songs, so I have to do it manually every time. It usually works, but most of the time, but this actually takes place whenever it’s playing the last song in any of my playlists. Other than these two things that hopefully you guys are able to fix, I’d say that SoundCloud is a really great app to use for any kind of music-related activity.
Lord Vafa - Used to be great listening on my phone but now...
November 2021 update: App is working much smoother! currently 4.8 stars.
CloudPuffRainbow - GO+ problem
So I was loving the app until I woke up this afternoon and came to see more than half my songs were suddenly GO+ when before they were free. I’m seriously freaking out because all of my favorite songs are now previews and I have no idea what to do. I tried to see if anyone else was having problems in the comment sections and it seems like no one else is having this same problem. I seriously do not want to switch over to another music app just because SoundCloud decided to make half the songs GO+. And I’m not just talking about 1 artist suddenly switching from free to GO+ I’m saying multiple artists songs I have saved are GO+ now so it’s not an singular artist I’m talking about. Unless these artist just happened to talk to each other and decided “Hey why don’t we make our songs GO+ for no reason at all!”. Now that’s me being sarcastic, but I’m seriously freaking out because I can’t live through quarantine without my music. Please SoundCloud do something about this and don’t just scroll by ignoring the people’s problems.
JayCrafter - I use this app for almost all music but...
These advertisements are really starting to get annoying. You used to be able to scroll around SoundCloud and look for other tracks while an ad is playing but now the app forces you to look at the still frame ad while it plays and sometimes you can’t even skip it. Something that also gets on my nerves is when I get two ads in a row or after every other song. Stop forcing us to watch the ads, it feels really anti-consumer and like you don’t care about your customer. Also, its not just the ads themselves that are annoying but the lack of variety. I swear I’ve gotten the same CAPITAL ONE BANKING AD 5 TIMES IN A ROW and it really makes me never ever ever to so business with them. Same with Home Depot, in order to retain customer happiness there should be less ads and if that isn’t possible; at least make it so they aren’t as intrusive and repetitive. I love the app though and have been using it for years.
Iden rahtsami - One Big Dislike
SoundCloud I hope your reading this. The one thing that is keeping me from uploading more tracks and being able to see all the people who has liked or listened to my tracks like I used to is SoundCloud Go. I know you guys are probably losing money and your money thirsty but it doesn’t mean you have to have all these aspiring music producers pay monthly just to upload more tracks or view all the likes or listeners, just have people pay monthly to stream exclusive music and nothing else. I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with me on this but for a somewhat broke producer who’s paying monthly for other subscriptions, I just don’t have enough money to pay for SoundCloud Go, just to upload more tracks and other stuff I mentioned earlier. I hope you guys understand and wish to fix this problem that me and probably a few others are going through. Now, all you guys have done is rearrange some icons and make the app look somewhat cool, but you guys haven’t added anything new yet to the app which means I’m still very very disappointed. After every update this platform has made, it keeps getting worse.
Egyptian7 - Love it BUT...
I love SoundCloud i tell everybody about it it has a great mix or new and old artists. From people who are already big to helping others reach that goal, that’s one of the reasons I love SoundCloud. However, I just got an iPhone and im not able to “add next” to my songs which means instead of being able to in a sense create a playlist I have to go look and wait for one song to be completely over then click my other one.. Instead of just have it play next and be ready. I have no idea why this was removed or if it’s just for iPhones or what but it’s terrible. I would love if this feature is back so i can stop having to look through my 300+ songs play the one I want next instead of just adding it to the que . Bring back the add next buttons and the button that allows me to see what’s playing next and so I’m able to switch them. Bring them back!
Chris4200x - Overall Excellent
Been using SoundCloud for a couple years, everything checks out except when I am listening to SoundCloud through my blue tooth speaker, after a song ends and it goes to the next one, it just randomly stops playing. Then after another song comes on then it will work. Nothing to major just a little annoying. I have restarted and rebooted my phone as well as my Bluetooth speaker numerous times. Hoping this can be fixed. Thanks y'all.
UPDATE : you guys deleted all of my liked tracks which was my playlist essentially. And now it fails every time I try to sign in. I’m trying to change my password but can’t even do that. Give me all my liked tracks back and the star rating will go back to 5.
Final Update: liked tracks are coming back. Not sure what happened. Thanks for the fix, if not then I’m glad the glitch fixed itself out.
DeerSpotter - Seriously?
I referred maybe 10 friends already to this app. This last version. I took a chance and still downloaded it, it’s broken. Crashes on each song I play. Maybe you should stop running all those ads? Every 2 songs there is a new ad “please upgrade to SoundCloud go” you have now convinced me why I shouldn’t update and wait for jailbreaks to block all those ads. You want to tarnish your name so bad that you put so many ads that it crashes your app. Good job! Driving back from a outing and sitting with a girl listening to ads, awesome. Why would I do that? I already pay for other things. We normal people can’t afford to buy so many useless subscriptions here and there. I can’t believe this. Also seriously, what happened to the easy way to get to playlists? They used to be big icons easy to click now as I am driving I can barely see my icons which discourages me from using this app, if I can’t see my playlists I won’t use the app. Period. I’m a veteran user from iPhone 5 (7.0.4) to iPhone X finally and each upgrade I get with my phones your app gets worse. How is that for useless programming?
SadBoiSire - I Love SoundCloud, but I had its down sides
This app has always been my preferred method to post my music to. I’ve been a creator nearly 3 years and it’s just a useful tool to spread your word. Anyways, I have friends who are telling me they can’t repost my content, basically they attempt to repost but it doesn’t show up on there profile, I don’t receive a notification either, we decided to test it out, and yeah there’s certain artist that they tell the user they reposted the track and it never did, never shows up, yet when they re post bigger artists it shows up immediately, so what I feel SoundCloud is doing is restricting smaller artist from “to much recognition”
Why do you allow bigger artists content to be displayed as repost but not artist at the bottom? If I can figure this out, I will post more info, but that just seems weird. Other then that the app is amazing.
Disney/piratefan - pick your poison
it deserves 5 stars but i can’t help but remember the days with no ads and no premium service, everything jus listening, it would be really nice if you cut one of these things or at least chill out on the ads. Like maybe not right after the first song i play EVERY TIME!! it highly discourages me from using and i switch to apple music very quickly afterwards. By including a paid subscription and ads you’ve basically given apple the advantage as it’s pre downloaded on my phone and actually has all fully mastered music. I really want to see this app thrive but i think the money your making w ads and subscription is holding that back. 100% understand that you’ve probably ran those numbers thousands of times, but i truly think your fan base would explode to even greater numbers if you were to cut at least some ads, there’s just too much in the way of freely scrolling. However I have hope and rooting for you !!

We’ve been looking for a way to tap into the everyday collective of true lyrical rappers and wannabes alike to find out what’s really good and trending up to be hopefully a resurgence of Consciousness in Rap that's now being wrapped around Spiritual & Mental Enlightenment.
To our dismay to many of or New Rappers have yet to educate themselves on the importance of positive WORDS pumped out to their newly captive audience. We must start making committed efforts to move pass decadence.
Existing and espiring Rappers alike have to Stop Playing into the Hands of Dirty Heartless Music Industry Excutives that have Killed the Rap Game by promoting Negetive Content and giving a stamp of approval for Self Destruction of its listeners whiles knowing its marketing is targeted especially to those living in a poverty state of mind.
It's our hope with this new and Exciting Platform called SoundCloud and other similar platforms will be a Gateway for those that process the courage and Lyrical Talent to Speak Life & Light into the Game without Demeaning words like N:gg@s & B:thęs as Verse Starters & Lyrical Fillers and will soon come out of the Darkness Blazing into the Light 🔥 and Spark ⚡️a Revolution of Uplifting Selfless Flows that will Once again give Rap a New Face of Unstoppable passion that will Change the World 🌍 moving it back into its Devine Order!

WSN_1400 - New update is pure garbage
I’ve been a SoundCloud user/artist since 2010 I’ve never once had a problem with this app until the recent update it’s so annoying. Nothing loads none of my tracks I liked load none of my insights load nor does the home screen load for weekly updated or new songs artist dropped. I already uninstalled this app 4 times hoping it was just an error but it’s not, I really hope the users/creators of SoundCloud didn’t delete my music or my liked tracks if they did then I’ll rate this app lower and delete it. Whoever’s genius idea it was to update SoundCloud for IOS like this needs to seek help they also did a horrible job. Why is it that all these people who had SoundCloud for years never had a problem, until this current update all these reviews from Users/artist that are leaving on this update is just showing the person who updated SoundCloud like this really did do a horrible job.
The Slightly Strange One - Awesome app, been using it for years! But now there’s this one thing...
Okay, so I’ve been using this amazing app for a few years now and it’s been absolutely great, but since the most recent updates, it’s been having more adds and now when I’m trying to listen to my music outside the app, it’ll keep going for a while, and then out of nowhere, stop when I haven’t done anything. I’ve checked and is not my headphones, and I bet it’ll get fixed soon, aside from this temporary thing, this is a wonderful app that has the songs in a reachable, free platform when you can’t find the song you’re looking for anywhere else. It’s also an awesome place to find your type of music because it has such a wide variety of content! Amazing over all 🥰 have loved it for years 🖤❤️🖤❤️
Cancelwriteareveiwsend - Computer vs Mobile
Okay so I’ve been using SoundCloud for quite some time now, and there’s no errors or glitches with me. I also like that I can use it across all devices, including my laptop. But when I got on my laptop to use the website, I noticed how much better it was than the app. Let me just get to it, it had some basic features that every music app should have, and the computer version has these features but not the app. Some of these features include things such as adding songs to up next or being able to start off a song first and then hit shuffle, rather than just going to the playlist and hitting shuffle. It’s very annoying when you have to constantly flip through songs just to hear a song that you like but then having to go back and shuffle again. So as a summary I would say this is four and a half stars but it doesn’t give me that choice.
Kushover - love it but please update certain features
i have used soundcloud for years now, ive grown up using the app quite literally. i have bought subscriptions, told all my friends to only use soundcloud, etc. like i’m crazy for this app, but in comparison to how much easier it is to use on the website, it makes me extremely disappointed that finding new artists is just… not as easy? like the ability to hear the tracks people have recently posted or reposted in the last day from my following list. i find so many amazing songs that way, but i simply can’t do that on mobile. all the organized playlists are there which is cool & so i can still rely on “the upload” & “soundcloud weekly” but i need more. the playlists are only good for so long, please let me navigate your app for LONGER by making it easier find music🙏🏻
Raz_davidov - SoundCloud is being slow/Loading Error...Tap to try again
I just want to say that I love this app so much, I use SoundCloud like 24/7! It is my favorite because not only do I love listening to the music I like, but I also happen to upload my own songs on there as well. My only issue with this is app is that it’s been lately being very slow on my phone. Whenever I go on SoundCloud nowadays it’s acts like one of those old computer machines that people would try to use back in the day, or it is also kind of like using an old phone because it runs very very slow on my phone. Also, I have been experiencing lots of loading errors on each song whenever I want to shuffle music on SoundCloud on my phone. Some work and then some just don’t want to work, and it is very strange because it hasn’t done this to me before. If there is any way that this issue can be fixed, please fix it so that I won’t have this problem at all anymore. Thank you so much!
Joseph A D !!! - TOO MANY ADS
I don’t really write reviews for apps ever. I used to love this app and still use it occasionally but these ads are getting way too out of hand. I understand that the app has to make money but it seems like they are intentionally throwing ads almost every other song just to get you to buy SoundCloud plus or whatever the paid version is called. And it’s not like they are short ads either. It’s every other song a 30 second ad. I have started just closing the app out and reopening it and going back to the same song in half the time it would take for these repetitive ads to be done. I do not think that this deserves one star. I put it there in hopes that someone will see it and make a change. 2 years ago I would have given this app 5 stars but now with the amount of ads I would not truthfully give it more than 3 stars.
Update: it’s getting worse. I am having ads stop music in the middle of 3 or 4 minute songs. This is not okay.
Later Update: ¿ALL MY ADS ARE IN SPANISH?
Sabrina_poptart - One major issue...
I really love SoundCloud, and I love to listen to it outside, but for a while now it’s been completely draining my battery in just thirty minutes. For example with today, my just ten minutes ago was at 70%. But in a matter of minutes, I see it drained all the way down to 61%, then went to 59% just fifteen seconds later, and then suddenly my phone just shut off, and when it finally restarted after plugging it in, it was at 10%! Now I have to wait TWO HOURS just to for it to charge back up, only for the same thing to possibly happen again. That’s absolutely insane! This problem only happens when I’m using SoundCloud, and it happens nearly every time I use it! I just want to listen to music and enjoy my time outside! But now, I’m stuck in my room waiting for my phone to charge again because of this problem! Please, if anyone holds the advice to make my battery go down slower, I would very much appreciate it!
SXn_f1Xw3r - Your new update is trash
SoundCloud is fine it does it’s job better than most music apps but it has multiple completely stupid problems.1 I can’t play certain songs for absolutely no reason that I used to be able to play before.2 some songs you literally cannot find for absolutely no reason you will be listening to it accidentally remove from liked and then never see it again it’s annoying.3 get rid of the 13 million copies of songs idc if it’s a repost or not if the creators didn’t upload it it shouldn’t be there I’m tryna listen to new music and then the same song uploaded by 40 different people keeps playing which reminds me stop putting the same music in the created for me playlists why would I even click on them if it’s the same songs I have liked. All of this and more was already an issue before you remodeled SoundCloud so why don’t you guys actually fix your app instead of making it look pretty
Littletwnstarsglittergraphic - ads after almost EVERY song
it’s ridiculous, i thought after i got a new phone this would go away, and it did - for a little bit. now, every time i open the app, i get an ad. if i listen to ONE song, i get an ad. if i don’t even listen to anything i get ads which sometimes stop playing when you leave the app, so you can’t play them in the background. i swear it didn’t used to be like this, i’ve tried turning on and off my wi-fi, clearing the app cache, deleting and redownloading the app, and nothing. for the record, i’m not opposed to the idea of sc having ads in general, it’s just that they’re so frequent i use the app less and less. i’m stuck to it because ive been using it for so long(large library) but that’s the only real reason.
also, there are some glitches, like text not showing in the search bar in night mode, and liked songs/playlists not showing up when you search for them. my main gripe is with the ads, months later as i update this, i’m getting one after EVERY song. sc crashed and as soon as i opened the app it came back with an ad. i’d give 4 or 5 stars if it weren’t for this stuff
and STOP with the same ads over and over
it wouldn’t be as bad if you had some variety but it’s just verizon over and over again, i get it, and if anything i want to use verizon less now
you really need to fix your ad program before everyone starts leaving.
Manemjef - Important issue with the app that needs fixing
I’ve been using Soundcloud for over a year now and one thing that has been happening on an off again is a bug that crashes the app when your phone is turned off and listening to music. This was patched a long time ago, but it’s back because of a recent update. Whenever you are listening to songs and the phone is turned off, around the 0:45 mark the app crashes. It’s really annoying when you’re in the shower and you can’t access your phone. And on top of that, an ad plays every 5 or so songs instead of 10 to 20 when I am looking through songs. And it’s one of those video ads that pauses when you go to the home menu or turn off your phone, making you watch 30 seconds of disturbing imagery about what happens when you vape. I’ve hung up with it before, but at this point, I just can’t. I really urge SoundCloud to fix this. The only reason I still use this app is because it hosts some of my favorite artists.

Soundcloudererer - Great music app with more opportunity to become even better.
Soundcloud is great and is my current go to service for music streaming. While listening in the car on iOS CarPlay I found that you cannot fast forward or rewind. Also integrating it more tightly with iOS CarPlay would make this app even more appealing. For example by creating an interface is iOS CarPlay it would make it easier to use and make it legal to use in a car.
Nfndjdjfhdh - It has it’s downsides
The only benefit this really has from other music apps, from my eyes, is the fact that there is so much more content and things to listen to. There are more downsides than upsides, from my perspective. Like the ads. In my opinion, they are extremely repetitive and come around too often. the ads vary from when they pop up, but for some reason I only ever get one of two different ads that both last for 15 seconds. Not to mention that there were 2 seperate times where I’ve listened to a song, got an ad, moved to the next song literally a second later and then got the exact same 15 second ad I just had to watch. And it’s not just that, but there are a lot of songs that need Soundcloud pro, which I find annoying. I understand why, it’s just sometimes disappointing.
Apart from those, it’s a pretty good app, but I would still mainly prefer something else.
ViJrehnice123 - Why aren't you fixing this application's problems?
This normally never happens before but latest versions of this app just made SoundCloud frustrating.
Major issue is how this application refuses to load up a song at times, even if you restart the app and have stable internet connection, it may not load up the song as if it's having trouble connecting to the server.
Minor issue is how the song abruptly ends or skip to the next song when it reaches like the last two seconds of the current song. This never happened half a year ago and it seems like they're not sorting this issue out ever since I have to reinstall this app. It's annoying and it needs to be fixed.
I'm giving this application two stars because while it may be usable, it has issues and the tablet/iPad version is inferior to the mobile/iPhone version because we don't have the option to see the song's description and comments, let alone write our own comments.
Ibrazizou - Serious problem with SoundCloud Go, please check
I accidentally lost my subscription to SoundCloud Go because I forgot to change my credit card details so the payment couldn’t go through. I renewed it and then discovered that I had to re-download all the songs I had saved offline. Annoying, but I can understand that. So I did that and it worked for a couple of days. Then I was trying to listen to my playlists while I was out and none of the songs would play, so I checked and saw that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE SONGS HAD BEEN DELETED. I spent ages re-saving almost 500 songs and then a couple of days later they were all gone again! Unbelievable! I have no idea how it happened and I’m really annoyed because now I have nothing to listen to during my daily bus and train rides. If this is some kind of glitch then it needs to be fixed ASAP, because I will not continue to pay for this app if I have to re-save all my songs every couple of days.
Fdsyhghjjjfddsss - Long adds and too many
I downloaded this app a few months ago and have tried to put up with the fact that it has so many adds and they are too long and can’t be skipped. But today I realised apart from that, there are absolutely no features available in the free version. So we have to put up with the very long and frequent ads but still get NO features. All you can do is like a song. Can’t download, can’t make up a list of any kind, can’t skip ads, can’t dislike a song so that it stops repeating since you are for ed to listen to whatever they choose for you. Or you’ll have to manually go and search for the song you like everytime a song finished which is every 3 minutes!
Solution? Maybe now that we are putting up with non skippable 30 seconds ads, you can at least allow the user to have a list of their favourite songs to listen through rather than manually choosing every single time.
🎇🎆🌃🌌 - Not loading
Hi, I have this app on my phone and stable internet connection. For some reason, it does not load the song or profile that I click on, none at all. I have this on my laptop, the website and logged in with my account and it works fine. I don’t know if this is some bug or I’m the only one with this problem. But I would like to see this fixed and addressed in a near future bug update or something to improve the functionality of this app on the phone. Apart from this major issue on the phone/app, the Soundcloud content is superior to most other music apps as it also does audio tracks. I am able to easily find what I like and was surprised with the results and the usage. Thank you.
Amateur academic - Great; couldn’t ask for better
The UI is intuitive; it has both Light & Dark mode based on System Theme; it works in the background and when the screen is off; you can access the song controls from the Lock screen, it has a playlist of all the songs you’ve liked; and (best of all) u can listen to your liked playlist offline (or at least most songs in it), so I could listen to them when I was on a flight with no WiFi or mobile data.
Just an overall well-made app; has everything I could want from a music app.
The 1 downside is the occasional ad, but I guess they gotta make money somehow.
Lupø - Terrible bugs but great app
I use soundcloud (and have paid for premium service) so I can listen to all the underground music that I enjoy, however the app has some terrible bugs included. Bugs such as deleting 392 songs off my playlist and not playing after pressing play on the lock screen are some of the most infuriating bugs I’ve come to notice. The problem is that it’s only been recently that these problems have risen, I’m not sure if it’s because it can’t handle the number of songs on my playlist (which was capped at 492 by the app) or if it is due to me recently purchasing premium to listen offline. Overall this is a terrific app and I love how it’s great to support upcoming artists make a name for themselves but please fix the problems it has.
Microsofta&r - Soundcloud issue | description
To read someone description you have to use the website. Really poor as i want to read artists lyrics that they put in their description on the app rather the website (as most people use the app)…….but only way is, we got to have to copy the link or re look up on the website just to see the description/ lyrics, there should be an option to see the description On mobile app or on the app in general
Implement description on mobile app, so we can read other people description on their songs …. / so we can read the lyrics they post in the description…. (You cant read any lyrics or any description on mobile pre sad)
Brakkit - Great App but needs some desktop features
Absolute great app but it needs more features for the creators. It Just seems to be a matter of adding things that you already have on the desktop version such as direct messages, the ability to view each individual track’s stats (even with free version) and go more in depth with the listens, likes, reposts etc. Nevertheless I love this app and have been using it for years!
Lee1285 - Won’t let me like a song?
I’m not sure why, but it won’t let me like songs. I searched how many songs minimum I can like it said 500. I have 93. So I don’t know what’s going on there and it’s quite annoying. I like it then it unlikes it with out me touching it. Two days now, and it still won’t let me like songs. Other than that the app is amazing, I really like it, no issues so far. It’s just that I can’t like any songs. I don’t know if anyone is having this problem, but i don’t know how I’m meant to fix it.
Harrribosydney - Slow Connections Buffering
this used to be good for continuous streaming of favourite and new DJ 's & other artists - but lately it has trouble connecting - not to the frequent unwanted ads though - they push through intrusively LOUD & unwanted = ANNOYED. - seems each 'app update ' is just so they can allow more allocations for these apps - not improving the streamlining on content flow - the app was initially created for ( I presume - so I'm no longer updating for fear of having more brainwashing ads annoying me )
YES -I know there is an ad free option , but not everyone can afford this
Imhinduuu💕 - I’m upset
I listen to Soundcloud majority of my time but today something weird happened. I was getting Soundcloud up like usual and it was saying that some of my favourite songs were only available in preview and the others were apparently ‘not available’. They were working fine yesterday and some did not need a preview. I hope you can fix this because Soundcloud is my go to app for music because it is just easy :)
PremiumChrome - Going downhill
I’ve loved this app since I first discovered it and it’s still a good platform even with the constant bugs, but the new “feature” of the comments constantly popping up while you’re playing someone’s track has to be the WORST thing this app has ever done. It’s infuriating and unnecessary. Nobody cares if someone has commented “Bro totally sik” at minute 1:32. Absolutely no one cares.
Soundcloud developers, I beg you - Please PLEASE read the SoundCloud Community posts on this because it’s full of people who are just fed up with it. At least please give us the option in Settings to turn them off!!!
AbriAbrisham - Good access for the phone version
Like for the phone version, however the internet version should focus on more ethical ads. There is nothing worse than having to sit through a McDonalds jingle when your vegan. Though it doesn’t matter a whole lot more ethical ads that promote inclusion in a social goods would be a better business model transition.
Hamsoward - Please fix bug where online link doesn’t take you to app
Hi there, I regularly share Soundcloud links of artists on a music publication website and while I love Soundcloud I find it EXTREMELY puzzling that there is a bug where an embedded link either on a website or even though social media shares (Instagram stores for example) do not take you to the app. It either takes you to the App Store (even when you already have the app downloaded) or you just have to listen on your browser not signed in. Therefore the only way to listen to an uploaded link is to search the title within the app. Please fix this! Thank you
JannyJr2480 - Refresh Bug
Excellent, smooth running app overall. However on the latest version on my iPhone 12 Pro Max when I click on the library tab which is the fourth icon along the bottom menu and I scroll up to click on liked the app automatically hides my liked songs just out of view. Hopefully this can be fixed in the next update
Emcee King-B - Next update suggestion
Hey guys, love the app!… me and a few mates were talking and we actually had a mad as idea that’d probably spark up some attention for you guys!… so you have an option for us to add where we are from in the world but sometimes it’s hard to find other artists from my area so maybe if you guys had a part of the app that lists the artists from the area/ location selected then maybe it’d make it easier for locals to collaborate with one another
Soundcloud user 484893 - App won’t load
I love this app, but I can’t use it since yesterday because any new music I tried to look up wouldn’t load and I got a page that said “loading error”. I tried deleting and downloading again but now I just lost all my music because I can’t even log back in. I’ve tried changing to wi-fi and it doesn’t work either. I also tried to google this first to see if other people were experiencing the same problem but literally EVERY soundcloud related page refused to load due to a server error. Please fix the app’s loading issue! Thank you
Dpal2212 - Love it! Great source of music!
I love Soundcloud, it’s just so easy to use!
Search up the name of the song: it’s there!
Search up the name of the album: it’s there!
It’s so easy to use and 2 days in it already is giving me awesome songs to listen to! On the 1st day, you tell Soundcloud what music genres you like, then voila! You music genres all ready for you! I give Soundcloud 5 stars!
TF141GHO5T - Playback issue with 5.60
Great App all round and playback issues are always resorted promptly. One issue with this update is that certain songs on the server may be corrupted? Such as when you click on these songs, playback stops completely and will not resume unless the app is closed and re-opened. Example of such a song is “Rough Soul by Goldlink ft April George”.
Listening from an iPhone 8.
Hahahhahajshjsnehakjz - Play next’ feature
to many times scrolling through my playlist selecting only the proper filthiest of songs to rock these c**nts minds with, i only have the time of one song to select the next one, as there is no queue feature, no play next baby no options to lineup songs only got 3:27 minutes on average to get a the next vibe going with the previous song.
Needs a play next, queue songs feature
Insta: @kidpharaohgod - Needs to be fixed
Soundcloud is my go to app for music 100% and I upload my own music to it through two different accounts then have my own personal account for listening. Last night I attempted to switch accounts to find that I’m unable to sign in at all on my phone. I then got my brother to sign out of his account on his phone and attempt to sing back in and fail he was unable to access his account also. This happened at 9:30 pm on the 7th it’s now 8:45 am on the 8th and I still haven’t seen anything addressing this major issue or been contacted back by the soundcloud support team
Hotdoggo1456 - One problem
I just have one problem the app works awesome and fine but when it need and update it does it more than usual it would say that one update is done but another keeps coming and when this happens the updates take AGESso if I had 2 updates in 1 day it would use most of my day up but other than that it’s perfect! 😁🇦🇺✨ merry Xmas! 🎄🎀🎊🎉❤️💚💛
Daannaann - TAKE ME THERE (OUR BUSH) on SoundCloud
This song is like a dreamy trip with a really nice groove and just as we starting to get into it ...it just ends...kinda like most dreams I guess.
I’ve listened to this track a few times now and I’m not even sure if the lyrics are actual words because each time I hear the track I here a different lyric.
Jason_didsel - I can go pick up some stuff
I hope you have had some time today and then we can go get some paperwork done tomorrow morning and then we can go get some stuff for dinner tomorrow night if you want to go pick up some stuff for us to do tomorrow night and then we can go get some stuff for you to pick up some stuff for us tomorrow night if you want.
Pbab94 - This is getting ridiculous
I love the music on Soundcloud, have been listening for years and I'm also a paying user. That said - this is one of the worst apps I have ever used. There is always a bug. Listening offline doesn't work half the time and I have to resave the songs only for it to then not work again. Most recently I can't play a song all the way through without the app crashing. I want to keep listening but there's only so much of a terrible app a person can take. Please fix asap.
Re Defy YT - Needs more features
The app is hands down great. but I wish there was more features, you can replay a song or you don’t, can you please add a replay playlist function because it’s only available to pc. And this is an extra please add a equaliser, there is no third party app that allows you to do it so please add it. Other than that it’s a great music player!
Super smash gamer - Extremely Slow
Ever since the new update, changing songs or adding new songs to playlists have been an extremely slow and tiring process. Whenever a song is playing and I decide to change it, the app says its playing the currently selected song but I still hear the previous song to that. This bug persists for about 30 sec to a minute before it decideds to switch. This is getting really fustrating, so I hope that this will be fixed in the next update.
Xcellerator - Hours of bg Battery Drain?
Anyone else getting ~4.7 hours of battery background drain? 🧐🤔🤦♂️ It’s at the top of my battery list... at 44% followed by Messenger at 10% with 33 min bg. o.O I use SoundCloud a lot, but dam the battery usage seems chaotic since iOS11... :/ Is it stuck in some bg loop even when a track is paused and the app is running on the bg? Hmm...
Also, sometimes SoundCloud stops audio playback when I move SoundCloud to the background... only way to solve it is kill the app and relaunch it...
Ahsvsjbe - Britney
This music/podcast app is the best one I have ever had, you have unlimited skips and you can adjust the time of the video. Also you have a wide range of music and podcasts, I would definitely recommend this to people on a budget and needing relaxation and music.
AlexseyLexa2020 - Very bad
Terrible, just terrible. Not only that the tracks sometimes do not turn on and you have to wait for under an hour when you can turn on ANY track. But this can be omitted, here another problem looms, in the form of the fact that when I search for a track through the search and try to turn it on, the application lags and crashes, I still do not understand what the problem is. Please fix, I'm using this application on IPhone 7 ios 15.1
Sammyp19 - Needs an update!
Since I’ve updated the app I’ve come across some problems.
1. The app won’t play music in the car automatically anymore. I have to manually play the music by going into the app.
2. The notification that appears on the lock screen while the music isn’t even playing and I can’t get rid of it. It’s becoming very annoying having it there when I’m not playing music.
LlamaLegacy - Lack of Siri integration
This is the best music app I’ve had owned, it’s free and people say there are ads but personally I don’t encounter them.
My one big problem that gets me thinking from switching from soundcloud to Apple Music is lack of Siri support, if they add that, I will stick with soundcloud for life.
Elliedoesfitness - DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!❤️❤️
This app is AMAZING!! It is an app that allows you to play whatever song you want for free! It has lots of playlists that are VERY handy like relax, workout, party and SO much more! You can play any song you want AND you can go out of the app and still listen to the song. This is now my favourite app! I highly suggest you download this app!🤩
Zieleń - Buggy and way too many ads
When I started using the app years ago, there were ads, but not so many that they drive you up the wall. Now, it seems like you get a 30 second ad every 3 songs; it’s crazy. Then there’re the bugs, which make it take forever to change song when swiping. I’ve been wanting to change music platform for nearly 2 years, but I have way too many songs at this point. Perhaps one day...
Prud 31 - Please remain underground based.
Best App for underground Music, infamous ill bass & electronic, space, jazz hop, trip hop, glitch hop, experimental to future music artists & genres. Many of the best artists even have only around 90 followers and 10 tracks. If you don’t use soundcloud it’s sad! It’s my favourite App of all time! It’s a recharger & enhancer for my daily everyday energy.
Duskish - Bluetooth. Quality of life
Great to be able to download tracks for offline listening but please can we add an audio sources button for better managing Bluetooth headset devices. Having to jump out of the app to the now playing widget is about two swiped and two taps too many for something that needs doing frequently with things like airpods.
Jukeboxjimmi - Used to be good!
The new updates takes this app into an overly-simple waste of time. You can't see who has liked, listened to or commented on your tracks! Why?! Why so simple and pointless? Unfortunately this app now goes into the junk pile. Shouldn't the app at least try to support some of the main features of the website?
Jordyy' - Good app but one bug that they still haven’t fixed
Love the app and the website, but when ever I try open a SC link from Facebook or any other platform like that, it will open the SC app but won’t load the song. It won’t even have anything to do with what I clicked loaded up, it will just have what ever was on the app when I was on it last. Very frustrating and hope that gets fixed.
Kaharne lees - Offline
Dear sound cloud I would really appreciate if you would make songs on my playlists offline as it has s hard to listen to music offline I still go on search online but I really would like if you could make playlist off line please thanks kaharne
Noobieplaysyt - It really good
I got this glitch were you can listen offline for free you go online then listen to your whole playlist and then go offline after you finish your last song then you can listen to that playlist again offline
Recomendoed - Good app
Really good app for listening to songs that are as good as songs that are released, really good to give upcoming singers a bit of love I love smedz and Ryan woullemans song and I also enjoy the mixes of different songs by carneyval. Definitely recommend go check it out now
Jashan Randhawa - Love the new updates
Earlier i used to listen to listen to podcasts, and if i paused it and left midway when i came back the track started from beginning.
Now i can come back after a while the track continues from where i had left it
💖💖💖👀😻 - Put the actual songs by the actual singers
Soundcloud is a good app but the thing is that not all songs are there, they are either sung by random people *please stop that it’s annoying* or the songs are either fast or slow motion can you just put the original song by the original singer / rapper 🤦🏻♀️
Like for example thank you next I can’t find the whole song sung by her it’s sung by other people which is annoying
By Liana - Tracks won’t show in my playlist
Recently whenever I add a song to my playlist, it doesn’t appear. I can’t add any songs because my playlist will show that it hasn’t been added. I’ve tried refreshing the app, closing the app, restarting my phone, but nothing is working. Please fix this, or else I can’t download songs to my playlist anymore and the app will be useless.
ArvoCarto - Thinking of switching
Have loved SoundCloud and used it for years, but the latest update demands I have IOS 12... I just want to listen to music. Now I have to go back up my ph and make space for IOS update. This Inconvenience is making me look at other apps. Why create friction for their users? This is just as much apples fault. Thinking to change phones too so I’m not extorted by Apple all the time.
GenDemo - Needs some work
Initially I thought it nice, but then I got working with it. You can’t sort the order of episodes from a channel. Doesnt send between devices. The commenting feature is nice with the time stamp - except that it only intermittently captures your location. It needs a fast forward and rewind by 15s button. Sound quality is good. Seeking through a track is easy. I like the visual interface.
WednesdayEclipse - No Option To Edit Profile
I only just got this app, and including Pulse, both apps don’t allow you to edit your profile. Not many people use a computer or laptop much these days anyway. I tried to access the site through my iPhone only to find nothing, it would lead me back to the app. I just joined Soundcloud, and this should have been an option to do.
Ellie134506 - Never plays from where you left off
I listen to podcasts on soundcloud, but if you pause it for whatever reason, it never plays from exactly where you left off. I could understand a few seconds/minutes, but mine will go back a few episodes, to the start of the podcast, or even back to the start of my playlist! So frustrating trying to remember where I was up to last time.

Tannernh - It's free
Some times you can play your songs offline
Gkfjdhu - Not Bad
Can’t upload from iPhone? Why?
Took my stuff down for intellectual property infringement? How do the others get away with remixing songs then?
How do I go about asking Mick Jagger if I can use his music in my art as well? Or how do I get in touch with Paul Anka’s agent to “borrow” some of his writing?
Now they Will Bradley is gone, how can I immortalize his music and entice people to learn more about - but more importantly - REPRODUCE music from the swing era? How can I get in touch with his estate rep to request permission to use his music in conjunction with my music (electroswing/swing-hop/swing-jazz remix)?
I use Soundcloud®️because it works great with AudioShare®️and allows me to start integrating Superpowered SDK®️into my 🍎 devices to produce higher quality playback using less resources before I attempt to upload tracks for the world to hear and enjoy!
Most importantly, I need earlobes on my songs or they will never catch on and stick -like the ones that make the radio and Payout large bringing with them Fame and Fortune.
I’ve found MANY MANY remixes of other songs on SoundCloud. I guess they must have slipped through the cracks undetected? or went through a process that I haven’t discovered yet? Im still a bit confused on this. Not surprising since I’m just getting started with it.
Overall a good program! Could have given a better rating for upload abilities on mobile devices.
F4$e - Soundcloud
This app I love because it is going to be a contributor to my successful wealth of being payed doing what I love and some....
Chay A. (f4$e)
HhsbudiGdVtCgjBg - Perfect
Switched from Spotify because they don't have all the music I want. SoundCloud has all my old favs from Drake and Majid Jordan!
Lil bomb threat - Can’t listen to all my songs
Most of the songs on my playlist have been turned into Go+ songs out of nowhere. Not sure why considering the artists who’s songs went Go+ wouldn’t make their songs under that because they’re “SoundCloud rappers”. Deleted the app.
Paraandrea - Great app!
I would recommend this to anyone
Djdjdjdhsjahhd - Great
Could use new songs but still choose this over spotify and apple music anyday
Mange moé lpain - Love Hate
I have a love hate relationship with Soundcloud. Compared to other streaming platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud offers a really good quality of the sound (it’s so much better than Spotify, even when the settings are on the highest quality). To top it off, Soundcloud offers a huge variety of songs and a lot of the songs I listen to are on Soundcloud, but not on other streaming platforms like Apple Music or even Spotify.
So, is the app any good? Well, absolutely not. It’s gotten worse over the time, and right now, I don’t know if soundcloud wants me to stop using their app, but they’re doing an excellent job at making the it as frustrating, buggy and slow as possible. Going thru the songs in my playlists is a real nightmare because the app is extremely buggy and unstable, and I feel like everytime I scroll in the songs, the app might crash. For a premium sound as Soundcloud offers, you would expect a premium app, which is actually in reality the complete opposite.
I started using Soundcloud back in 2012, and since that time, the app and the platform changed a lot, from being really user friendly to a complete buggy mess. To top it off, I now have, since I think now 1 or 2 years, have to listen to garbage adds every 3-4 songs. It would be alright if I listened to 10 minutes songs, but in my Lo-Fi playlist, where every song is approximately 1 minute, it’s really, really annoying. I often just close the app and go listen to a playlist on Youtube.
The conclusion of my review is this : Dear Soundcloud, stop trying to be like Spotify and Apple Music, because you are not the same streaming platform and you won’t win against these guys, because they have really good apps that are way better than yours because they were created specifically for this type of streaming service. Soundcloud has a big advantage on these apps, which is the variety of music you can find; songs that are not available on the other streaming platforms, but that are on Soundcloud. Also, the sound quality is amazing compared to Spotify, which is another big advantage. Take these advantages and do something with them to exploit them to the fullest, which is not by trying to copy Spotify or Apple Music. Make something different because Soundcloud is not Spotify or Apple Music, and it’ll never be. There are other ways to support the artists than putting garbage adds every 4 songs and trying to make us buy Soundcloud Go, that will only make a small amount of songs available to listen fully. You know you can put adds between the songs in our streams, like Facebook and Instagram does instead of making us hear a goddam stupid annoying add? Fix your goddamn app, find an other way to finance it and to support the artists and now we’ll be talking and Soundcloud might be the next best streaming platform. Until then, good luck because god the app is awful.
Bakutou - Make a older version
I have a iphone 6 but i like this app more then other music apps, but i cannot use it because all the updates so can you make a older version of soundcloud
Mykahroni - Won’t work
You new update has made it mandatory to use an iOS 13 to use it and with an old phone and a minimum wage job I can’t use it anymore
Deko-sama - Update
It now requires an iOS update that is not available on my phone 😀 so it just doesn’t work anymore and I won’t get the update, Gotta love life rn
XxManwaring98 - Payment charge
You guys charged me $15.81 from April 21 2017 just last week! This is ridiculous I’ve never subscribed to any sort of payment I want my money back !!!!
Haileycatsbabe1234 - Sound cloud subscription
Got the free 7 day trial and I didn’t know how to cancel the subscription to sound cloud go + and still don’t know how and payments keep coming out would love to cancel
Katelynn Slayer - 🤦🏻♀️
This is horrible! I payed for offline listening and I haven’t gotten it! I want my money back, it’s been over 2 weeks already!! This is so outrageous
0x0D15EA5E - Too many ads
30 second long video ads are a step too far. I've deleted this app.
Lord yin - Please respond
You guys at SoundCloud are doing a terrible job with this app. I can understand the ads but there are too many of them and they’re so repetitive. Half of my playlist has become Go+ and I haven’t been given reasonable explanation why. This app has become a joke and an utter disappointment. You guys have completely disregarded the people that use this app for free. If I could get a response from the owner that would be nice and hopefully I can understand what Is going on.
🤦🏻♂️🙅🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🙅🏻♂️ - Go+
This app has turned into a joke for free users I have been using SoundCloud for 3 years for free and nearly every song in my 500 song playlist has became “Go+”. There is no point in me using the app anymore because I can’t listen to anything. And this is the second time it’s happened to me
Abdulaziz Ugas - The Covid-19 ads are too excessive
We get it, there’s a pandemic. Now let us listen to our music in peace... I don’t need to hear an add every 4 songs
Xldingusman - Fix it
Literally 15 hours ago you guys said you’re constantly fixing the app and improving it. Then explain how i can load anything I click a playlist in the home page no songs are on it all my playlists and liked songs are gone I can’t even search a song explain how this is constantly improving
Yurine.flp - Bring back the old UI what the heck is this
Tome to switch to Spotify because the old UI was what made this app superior. I simply can’t see myself using this app anymore
Nuah_Xh - Eyyyyy!!! 7 Years or 6 Today!
Been a long time I use SoundCloud, it never disappoint me! I love this app, please don’t upgrade it too much tho, I love this application too much that I don’t want it to change :) But recommended asf!!!
Hitler Baxter - Can't use soundcloud anymore cus of update
My iOS is under what they want and I dont update my iphone cus apple downgrade your phone. So cant use the app anymore
Dhdhdjhfbxdh - Dream
I got it so I can hear dream the Minecraft YouTuber singing heather:)
AbhiopqnchcisoqoancGkqshc - Version 5.93.1
With the most recent update when you minimize the app it acts as if you’ve closed it and will not recognize you were in a playlist so you have to go reselect the song you were playing
Jiandudd - Became trash
It was a decent app to use at one point to listen to music made by main stream and underground artists but, it seems that any song that becomes too “relevant” got slapped with a GO+ when it never had one months even a year before hand. Honestly if y’all need a reliable app for music there’s Audiomack. Lmao SoundCloud has become trash.
Tell me why yet again, just a few months later SoundCloud has taken ANOTHER completely different batch of songs from their last update and slapped them with the GO+??? Y’all mf’s really making me want to delete this app and start paying for my Spotify again cause at this point.
Ohanarray - Not worth using without a subscription
Getting the same long, unskippable ad over and over again is unbearable. If that’s the point, just make it paid and stop pretending to have a free option.
Ihqtethusgame - Horrible
If I could I would give it a 0 bc after a while the music that was SUPPOSED to be offline turned in the Go+ and I didn’t want to waste my money on this garbage of an app, don’t waste your money or time on this app it’s trash
Jshdbeheh - Its trash now
I cant listen to my playlist cause u guys change most of my songs to soundcloud Go+
Thecanadianjay - All go+
Since you guys put more than half of your good songs only for go+ I can’t listen to my favourite music anymore. Might as well switch to Spotify
Wielpqpsm - Its good but
For some reason i can’t go in my playlist when i click playlist it shows the loading screen only and i cant see certain peoples songs when i click on their profile
MacBookBlaze - Not working right
Can’t click on artist name from the song playing nor from the 3 dots at the bottom to go to Artist profile.
FlackoXantana - doesn’t even work
Song stops playing after 30 seconds everytime.. have to restart whole app.. useless
Hugh McFare - Profiles Don’t Load
Can’t access my own profile or the profiles of any artists/followings. Deleted app after 10mins of frustration.
Tank5849999 - Your app sucks
Your app really sucks, it disconnected from wifi then didn’t load, then I tried everything, once I deleted and reinstalled the app, my playlist deleted and still didn’t work so enough is enough, I’m done using this stupid app, I’d rather pay for Spotify premium then use your app
Saraya1400 - soundcloud
i hate your new update
Kawaiigirlmlg - ARE YOU SERIOUS.
THE NEW UPDATE CONTINUES TO DELETE ALL MY LIKED SONGS AND I CONTINUE HAVING TO RE LIKE THEM IN ORDER TO HAVE A DECENT LISTEN 😭😭😭😭😡😡😡😡😡
Aremi~ - Good but crashes
The app updated and everything looks cool but as soon as I’m not on the app and listening to music in the background it crashes and closes itself
I keep deleting and redownloading it to get past this but it’ll just update itself again and have the same issue
SoundCloud I love you better than most apps for a bunch of your features but please fix this bug
Greyhood - 2022-05-24 update looks AWFUL!!!
Ew ew ew. Way to make the UI look like a watered down Apple Music. Looks awful! Hate it. It’s so bad and the UI designers should be fired.
Gjdhjshw - NEW UPDATE SUCKS
New update deleted all my liked songs and downloads. I pay for SoundCloud go I’m not sure why that would happen. I’m so sad rn years of music just gone.. if this doesn’t get fixed I’m cancelling my subscription
Itchyslav - Crash Crash Crash Crash Crash
I used to only use SoundCloud, now I only go back to see if it still crashes and checking for updates. In the last month everytime I play a song it crashes it can’t even finish through playing one. None of the updates have fixed anything and it’s sad that the company won’t acknowledge this issue(especially considering it’s pretty significant that THE APP CAN’T FUNCTION TO PERFORM ITS INTENDED PURPOSE!)
Ennbl - Constantly crashing
I’ve been using SoundCloud for years without any troubles but recently it’s been crashing literally constantly. When I say constantly, I mean I can’t even listen to a full song without it crashing at least three times. It’s driving me crazy. I tried installing updates and reinstalling the app but nothing works. I might have to switch to Spotify because the constant crashing is driving me insane and the app is basically unusable at this point.
Dekz16 - Why??
Why have they still not allowed users to read song descriptions on the app? Makes zero sense
Chandanpreet Mann - Excessively unwanted advertisements
Tooo many ads. Can’t listen my playlist because there are countless advertisements. Literally after each song you will get an ad which is not fair. This application was perfect before but not anymore, it is okay to have some adds but not after every song, I am going to delete it now. Please don’t download this app its very frustrating. They did it on purpose to move people to GO+ upgrade which will cost you $13.99. Its better to take youtube for $11.99 and can get much more. Also, if you just think to remove adds than you have to pay $7 every month😂 this was most irritating app I ever used.
Bugplzfix - good app
the app is great but its not making new tracks for the upload. I think its a bug because it shows new pictures but gives me the same songs when i click on it. plz fix i love the upload feature
MathGirl2007 - Not letting me sign up
I am trying to make an account for my podcast. But I’ve tried over and over and it keeps saying that I look like spam. I’ve tried on multiple different devices as well as using a different account. Still not allowed. I’ve contacted their help and told them the problem, but no response. Spam over and over. What a load of crap.
Licorice is good - It hasn't been working recently
I love this app, but lately every time I go into it, it just keeps loading forever and doesn't work. And I know it's not my wifi because everything else on my phone works just fine. Please fix this
Horrible213 - About app
Apps horrible because when you like a song and you can’t play it keeps giving you a try again prompt not only that when you try to unlike it just glitches out and keeps liking it back after the amount of times you unlike it
User694201111 - Its soundcloud
I can't believe you still cant check messages on the app
Ddfyughj - soundcloud+
I paid soundcloud+ go and still can't play songs offline
Verymuchfan - Only big problem
Wish the playlist limit was higher :/
