Finny120 - Great but the comment section...
OK, so I bought this app A couple months ago to listen to unreleased music by some of my favorite artists. It was great for the first couple of weeks and still is now, but I have one issue with it and that’s the comment section. It says this app is it for 12-year-olds and up, but in the common section there is no filter in for explicit language, and recently there has been an uprising of spam messages from girls advertising for websites that are related to pornography and are not good for kids to see. I have not gone on any of these websites and I don’t plan on it either because they can get viruses, and I don’t watch that crap anyways.
Definitely a great app but just be careful for links in the comment section. Be very careful, clicking on any of these links in the comments can easily put viruses on your phone even if it is an Apple device. Please be careful and I cannot stress this enough. It’s sad to see such an amazing app go to garbage from robot p⭐️sTo use this app to advertise. No other issues with the app, music is easy to move around from Playlist to Playlist. Definitely recommend but parents be careful with the links for your kids and us.
_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.
HotWheels_Beast - Great app except one thing.
The app works great, in my opinion it’s the best music app ever. It’s free and can actually pick what song you want to listen to whenever you want to listen to it, all with very little ads. You can pay to have the app ad free but no need for that. Also when you pay you can download songs for offline listening but I’ve noticed that if you put a song on a playlist and listened to it before at least once that it doesn’t have to load the next time you listen to the song so there is no need for paying. The only bad thing is there is this one thing called SoundCloud weekly on the homepage and it recamends you songs... but all the songs are usually really old like 1-3 years old, so I would like if it would recommend songs that are newer. Other than that if you live in a family that has very little money and you love to listen to music like I do (bus ride to school, bus ride home, when I play basketball, when I wanna jam out) and stuff like that it’s perfect. So SoundCloud if you see this please keep the app the way you have it. But maybe different color ways. I like when music apps change their color ways!
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!
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.
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.
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😭
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.
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.
Merakkii - Ads!!!!!!!!!
I love the music I can find on the SoundCloud platform but I cannot STAND the way you have set up users to consume ads! Firstly, there used to be a way to skip most ads after 15 seconds but that feature seems to have been completely removed. Next, you guys place an ad after almost EVERYYYYY song and not to mention the fact that you also have put ads BEFORE a song plays when you manually change songs! The app is only good because of the ARTISTS music that we have access to, but this app/platform is losing me day-by-day and makes me want to download the music and get off the app altogether!!!!!!! Lastly, one of the most annoying parts of your ad setup is the fact that when you do click another song and an ad plays——— YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE *BLEEPING* APP!!!!! You HAVEEEE to let the 30 second ad play fully in its entirety with no ability to skip halfway through or to close the app to listen while continuing to do something else on another app like most do! I guess you can just do like me and close/relaunch the app a million times but it’s getting absolutely so ridiculous and frustrating that I had to let SOMEONE who might be involved in this terrible setup know it needs to be fixed or DRAMATICALLY reduced!!!!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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! 😊🤞🏻
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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?
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.
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.

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!

LETS GO!.. Thx, SOUNDCLOUD
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?
Mariokong77 - Add Track Description & Date of Upload or how long ago the track was posted
Over the years, the SoundCloud Mobile dev team have gone through great lengths to make the mobile experience equivalent to the Desktop version if not better due to the portability.
But one of the latest things I wish the mobile version included like it’s desktop counterpart was the description of the music that the creator/uploader puts when one is included, and give us the date of upload or how long ago the track was posted, help keep me updated on the artist and to see how far they’ve come along over time. I think if those things were added, it would make SoundCloud Mobile better if not the BEST way to enjoy SoundCloud.
I love this app and use it every single day and I just feel like this could really help a lot
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.
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 !!
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!
OneAndOnlyBlue - So Amazing App
This app is really good, one of the reasons why this app is really good is the fact that, you can be a home like me that some times I listen to music when I clean, I’m Mexican so that the law, and I love the fact that you can just add the song you love listing to and then when you go to a trip you can listen to music, like me I listen to music when I’m going to school in the bus or even at home I just love the fact that you just add it to your playlist and without WiFi you can listen to music, like for example I’m going on a trip to New York May and on the way I’m going to listen to this app because you can listen to the music without WiFi. But one thing that is a bug is the fact that you have to buy the full version so you can to hear like music without the live version of the song.
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.
Mac Demarco Fan - SoundCloud Go being forced
I’ve used SoundCloud for years and never encountered an issue til recently. I’ve always loved the fact that most of SoundCloud’s music was free to listen to without a subscription. But recently a good majority (90%) of the songs are SoundCloud Go+ exclusive. I even check my friends SoundCloud’s who have no subscriptions either and I’m the only one who is being required to pay a subscription to listen to certain songs. Last month I paid the subscription of SoundCloud Go, not the Go+, and it fixed everything. I cancelled the subscription and a week or two after the same issues happened again. The subscription was expired and it would still play songs that were previously exclusive.
I would hope that this would be cleared up soon so I can listen to my Mac Demarco without issue like my friends can.
Vangsta12 - It’s amazing but...
As a long time user of SoundCloud I always been a fan and was my favorite music platform to use as it provided mostly all music and underground for free. But recently I have came into a glitch or bug were nearly my entire playlist is now “SoundCloud Go+” when they never were before. It saddens me because I tried to look for help for this glitch but the support and help system seems to be almost non-existent because I cannot post on the help center and when other people posted about the problem SoundCloud themselves said “their engineers are working hard to fix this problem and keep us updated” that comment was posted nearly 6 months ago and nothing has come of it and no word or anything I could find to fix this issue. So overall, it’s a great platform until you run into problems or glitches and from there you’re kinda on your own as the support system is close to useless.
Youngcodis - Uploading For Music Makers
I love SoundCloud. In fact it's the main app that I use, to listen to artists. But I have one MAJOR problem. If you are a artist yourself, then there is NO way to upload your music through the app. Now of course I can use a computer to upload music but I'm not always at home 24/7 when I want to distribute my music. Its very frustrating because sometimes all I want to do I upload a song when I'm not home but there is no upload tab or anything. I would like a place in the app where I can easily click, and upload any music I may have in my icloud drive and be able to pic the corresponding picture to go with the song. I feel as if this would be an easy implementation that would benefit more than just myself cause not everyone has access to a computer.
Imhatingmortalkombatxrightnow - Dissatisfied (Highly!)
My main issue with this app is how often it crashes, especially when I attempt to search through various artist’ tracks. Consistent crashes occur on this app (my phone is brand new so I know it’s not a phone issue) and there’s barely any support for creators on this app. Creators have to download Soundcloud Pulse which is also another app that’s behind it’s times (you still can’t even check PMs that are sent to you). I shouldn’t have to go through hell and back to listen to my music, but with the way this app is set up I can certainly say that it is highly dissatisfying on nearly all fronts. Only reason why it gets 2 stars is because of the fact that it’s somewhat useful, but get this app with the times developers!!!
Update: The app is still crashing every time I open up someone’s “latest tracks” section which is pitiful. However we can finally see notifications from the parent app instead of having to go to Soundcloud Pulse which is nice.
KHE45 - By far the best music app available
I’ve been a SoundCloud Go+ user for many years now and I absolutely love it. It is worth every single penny for the subscription in my opinion. No other music platform has the amazing selection that SoundCloud offers. No annoying advertisements, ability to discover new and upcoming artists, and user friendly interface are just a few of the things I love about SoundCloud. I’m hooked on SoundCloud for life. ❤️ highly recommend this app for anyone. It isn’t just electronic music. They now have a song selection that is absolutely off the charts. I’ve never found a song somewhere else and not been able to find it on SoundCloud. They’ve expanded their collection to a point where any user is adequately accommodated for their listening preferences. Love love love!!!
Doabarrelrollrightnow - New update
I don’t normally write reviews, in fact the App Store didn’t let me write this until I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it because of a glitch, but I have to emphasize the importance of this.
In the patch notes, it details performance enhancements and bug fixes. However, this new version severely increases the startup time. I now have to wait a solid minute on a loading screen before I can do anything whereas before it took half a second. I don’t know what causes this, and the app still functions otherwise normally. However, this new loading screen before the app boots up takes an unacceptably long time compared to what the load times previously were, and is especially awful considering that barely anything was changed within the app, yet the load time is multiplied by probably more than 20 times what it took prior to this update. If you haven’t updated yet, PLEASE WAIT FOR THEM TO FIX THIS, because it is severely hurting the functionality of this app.
$upreme-Court - I can’t login
Ok so I was trying to add my track to my sister by going through google chrome and when that didn’t work I logged out of it and now I went back to the app and I can’t log in like I tried everything I delete it then reinstall it like I put in my email and password error we already have you login but every time I leave and go right back and it it show the same thing over and over I called and nothin happened to this app it still showing the same screen when you get it everything is perfect but it just that to the point I can’t login and the song I have it going to be hard to find and I don’t want to go through that and I hope you guys fixed this soon because I Heard that everyone well some people are through the same thing like I am and it is getting frustrating please fix or help me with this.
Usually happy costumer - please update or idk what i’ll do 💔
soundcloud isn’t just a app, right. it’s a community. it’s the body of music heads. without soundcloud we wouldn’t have the access to leaks, snippets, and unreleased tracks that save so many of us. they show us a new side of our artist, so we’re not limited to what they put out. it’s like having one ear in the studio. makes u feel closer to the music u love. sure this is possible in other ways other than soundcloud, but sc is rly the best way!!
u don’t truly listen to music if u don’t listen on soundcloud. but for a app which such a importance, it’s performance is underwhelming. i don’t even leave comments on the app store but i wanna see a change! the app crashes on the regular. it’s constantly kicking me out of my Go subscription showing me ads and making me “restore” my purchase which sometimes fails to work. the design is outdated and could really use a more modern redesign. it should look and function just as beautifully as apple music does.
you should be able to use 3d-touch, add songs to ques, more easily navigate the “feed”, and much more. it doesn’t look the part of the role it plays. please update the design and functionality of this app to be more modern and appealing. it’s time for a change. up your game, soundcloud! we need you!!
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
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 :)
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.
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.
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.
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
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!!!
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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
Acrabat #1 - 5 out of 5
I always use Soundcloud I couldn’t ask for a better music app there is some ads but for me they don’t come up a lot I recommend this app if you just wanna listen to music with your device turned off. You can also listen to music while playing games but you just have to press the play button.
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!
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.
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! 🎄🎀🎊🎉❤️💚💛
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...
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.
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.
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!🤩
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!
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
porah04 - My rate on Soundcloud
Soundcloud have many songs and remixes that people make.
Soundcloud is also so easy to work with and u can turn your phone off and the music will still be playing.
They also have on the home screen options for types of songs !!
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
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
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.
💖💖💖👀😻 - 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.
123dash4 - The Algorithm of Awesomeness
It’s August 2019.
Recently Soundcloud has changed an algorithm that recommends me the best unheard of (by me) remixes.
I am experiencing so much value from that tweak alone that whenever music comes up in conversation straight up I always recommend soundcloud and explain what I’ve just shared here 👌
Very well done Soundcloud 👌
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.
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.
20298282 - Good quality
It’s not all about useing to show off it’s to use for wonderfull music ,I like it how when you like it then you can go offline and it would still play
It’s amazing easy to use even without instructions it’s also attracting people to buy this app!
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.
Urshi major - Disappointing
I downloaded soundcloud years ago to listen to music. To this day I still am, but now I’m slowly letting go of soundcloud. The ads, why won’t they play when I exit the app or when my device is turned off? That’s not fair. I shouldn’t have to turn on my device or go onto the app just to watch the ad. I’m fine with hearing it, but forcing me to makes me livid. I am disappointed in many other things, but previous reviews already repeat what I’m about to say.
Wilksy5454 - Needs to be improved not changed
Would be good to be able to slide to a specific time of a track more accurately when playing tracks with a long runtime. Also, the new button locations from the music player screen is a hinderance and against the natural flow of things, just put the minimise button back at the bottom of the screen where the rest of the buttons are
Soundcloudkid - Good App
this app is great but could be improved on. for example when you want to shuffle play it will stop when you finished all the songs in the playlist. this is my only complaint, overall soundcloud is amazing
melodytune - Music to my ears!
Just re-discovered SoundCloud. Best music app out there I reckon.
Love the diversity of music genres and decades covered, ability to make your own playlists, listen to talented global djs (well known and incredibly talented unknowns), mix yourself and upload, and share to a large TV for full stereo sound.
JeSsHjcwjnkdgfigd - Good app but deeply frustrating at times
Good app but extremely confused as to why it keeps automatically removing songs from my playlist when I know that they are there beforehand. Very, very frustrating having to go back constantly and re-like songs like 5 or 6 times when it should just stay there in the first place
T Kolak - Celebrates awesome sounds for listening pleasure
Set the standard for responsive. Gives artists a great platform, while supporting a huge and awesome community users who celebrate the wildly diverse range of sound from the most popular to most obscure. Best UI, and place for diverse, creative sound makers and listeners.
Martin. M - Fantastic
I’m finding music that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else, the volume of some tracks can be a bit varied however as I previously said I’m finding track that I love that I can’t find else where.

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.
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
XxManwaring98 - Payment charge
You guys charged me $15.81 from April 21 2017 just last week! This is ridiculous I’ve never subscribed to any sort of payment I want my money back !!!!
lil bomb threat - Can’t listen to all my songs
Most of the songs on my playlist have been turned into Go+ songs out of nowhere. Not sure why considering the artists who’s songs went Go+ wouldn’t make their songs under that because they’re “SoundCloud rappers”. Deleted the app.
f4$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)
🤦🏻♂️🙅🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🙅🏻♂️ - 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
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.
jshdbeheh - Its trash now
I cant listen to my playlist cause u guys change most of my songs to soundcloud Go+
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
Djdjdjdhsjahhd - Great
Could use new songs but still choose this over spotify and apple music anyday
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!
xldingusman - Add a que of songs
I really love this app for music but it would be amazing to add a que for music so that you can multiple songs to up next instead of just one so that if there is a line of songs you want to play you don’t have to enter and exit the app after a song just to put another song up next every time
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
user694201111 - Its soundcloud
I can't believe you still cant check messages on the app
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
ddfyughj - soundcloud+
I paid soundcloud+ go and still can't play songs offline
verymuchfan - Only big problem
Wish the playlist limit was higher :/
<~lndz~> - it’s ok!
i love soundcloud. it has all the music i like and i can chill to songs from my favourite artists. the only problem i have with the app is even though i pay for soundcloud go, there is still the upgrade to soundcloud go+ in a separate button on the bottom and tbh, before they had that soundcloud was better...
nathan wilhe - Be
Not letting me get rid of SoundCloud plus and I’m switching to Spotify cause of that crap
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
SarahClare428579 - Complete Crap
We can’t record on the app anymore????
x_Samantha - Lame
Ruined the app with all the ads.
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.
0x0D15EA5E - Too many ads
30 second long video ads are a step too far. I've deleted this app.
dhdhdjhfbxdh - Dream
I got it so I can hear dream the Minecraft YouTuber singing heather:)
Her💖💖💖💖i - too many ads
I get you need to pay creators but i’m not going to listen to an add after every song or every 2 songs, especially when they’re 30 seconds long and unskippable. Theres different ways to rack up money to pay creators like adding more features for premium (not taking away from non-premiums.) I’m switching to Musi, I hope there’s not as much ads. (it is great for slowed+reverb songs and remixes, though.
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.
breh69420 - Garbage application
After a few days of listening to music it makes every single song go plus and show only previews of the songs. Not only is SoundCloud go plus an overpriced membership there are two different types of memberships that are pretty much useless unless you want to listen offline. There are many other music application memberships that offer more features for less money that $13.99 a mont
Justin_O'Braiden - Soundcloud go-ing the songs
Please un go the songs you just go’d it’s really irritating, I can’t listen to any of my music now:/
kaine foster - why
all of my songs on my liked tracks have turned to soundcloud go i listened to them an hour before... like all my songs that normally wouldn’t be go
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
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
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
Me-Shed - Me shed
I love the music selection
GayOsiris - Dark Mode not working
Dark Mode isn’t working and there’s no setting for it as mentioned in the release notes. 👀
Paraandrea - Great app!
I would recommend this to anyone
Keenan407 - Great, until it BREAKS FROM BUGS IGNORED FOR YEARS
I keep all my songs under my ‘liked category’, and today i realized that MOST of my songs had been removed from my ‘liked category’ and then were replaced with duplicates of the exact same 60 songs.
That’s right, i actually have several instances of the same song now in my ‘liked category’, something i previously thought to be impossible.
If i try to revisit one of the songs that was forgotten by soundcloud and replaced with an older song, soundcloud immediately remembers that i had previously liked the song and then adds in into a NEW place on my ‘liked category’. This means that forever more, i will have an awkward shlump of 60 songs repeated 7 times each at the bottom of my ‘liked category’.
Did further research, turns out this bug first appeared like 5 years ago, and has continued appearing since then; sound-cloud closed the thread 5 years ago, denied the bug’s existence... and still hasn’t realized that it’s a real bug.
Thanks. This is great.
Huntersfsfxff1 - Transaction Errors
It renewed my “free” trail, without informing me it was going to charge my account as well as auto renew a subscription it made for itself.
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
meowwwwwwwwwww~ - calm down Jamal
it’s great man, would recommend to my friends.....🥳 satisfied customer!
SF1310 - No customer support
I have deleted my account and keep getting billed monthly! I am not subscribed through Apple so I don’t know what to do. There is no one to speak to directly through customer support - no email or phone number
turavarafarssbjutrewwce - very nice
navjass123 - Too much advertisement
Nowadays too much advertisements. I get really fed up.
ianhenri - Deece
HallowishCandy - Thank you SoundCloud
YOU ARE ABLE TO LISTEN TO SONGS OFFLINE IF YOU LISTEN TO THEM ONCE FULLY THIS FEATURE IS WAY BETTER THAN SPOTIFY but the only thing I would change is lower the price for SoundCloud plus by 5 dollars
Braydennnnnnnn - this app is Jesus
jcksnfoid - i love this
it’s the best
