Useless Creating Playlist
by SuperNOVA4381 on 2019/02/17 07:12
I create a playlist for a reason, to listen to MY music! But this app defeats the purpose of creating a playlist and it just plays other music not in my playlist.

New Update - more complicated interface
by DanDüma on 2019/02/17 06:56
It’s now less convenient to make songs repeat / shuffle than on previous versions. It’d be great to have that functionality back!
I hate the last update
by Cakethebesybunny on 2019/02/17 06:46
Before we had the save button the shuffle and repeat all in the the same area! It was so easy why you had to take the dumb repeat out and hide in the 3 dots? And does the heart now applies for saving? I hate it please fix it!

Don’t like the new visual features . Preferred how it looked and worked before the new update

PLEASE BRING BACK QUEUE
by Zachlmiller on 2019/02/17 06:03
I understand the updates you made but the fact that you can’t see you’re queue with one touch is annoying. I hope you guys could add a little place somewhere to put that cause it’s something I look at frequently.
update switcheroo
by Mason Blake on 2019/02/17 05:56
love the app, but why did the repeat & queue buttons go into hiding? they were perfect + accessible right where they were, and especially if you have an iPhone X it’s cumbersome to reach the now 3-step process to use the queue. don’t fix what ain’t broke, yunno?
Bring back the reply button!
by tngo27 on 2019/02/17 05:52
If I’m paying for premium, I should be able to have the replay button. Why did it go away??
Removing a song/shuffle button
by Blitz0Zero on 2019/02/17 05:44
When trying to delete a song it’s a hassle to find the song to delete. This has been an issue ever since I had this app. Also this most recent update has made it harder to delete songs since before it would highlight the song that was playing and you can then go and edit the playing and find the song. Also the shuffle button plays the same 20 songs in my playlist every time even though the playlist has over 400 songs in it.
Sleep timer
by Smartlax00 on 2019/02/17 05:24
Needs a sleep timer like Pandora has so it won’t play for 8 hours straight when I fall asleep while it’s playing.
Hiiiiiiiiii
by f*ck a silver lining on 2019/02/17 05:12
Love it. But you can’t play it on your Apple Watch. You can only control it from there.
Too many ads
by PatAndAllGamers on 2019/02/17 04:50
Too many ads make me frustrated. Can you please remove the ads and make it no money to pay?
Spotify is great 😁
by tyler2beast on 2019/02/17 04:48
I’ve been using Spotify for about a month and I am glad I started using it. I just wish that premium was not so expensive. But I love using it and I will keep on using it.
Killer App
by Mundo/61 on 2019/02/17 04:35
I like the fact not only does Spotify makes a mix playlist for you. You too can mix your make own playlists kool thanks 👍
MORE ALBUMS PLZZZ
by mermaid potato on 2019/02/17 04:34
I love Spotify and making my own playlists. The daily mixes are awesome too and I love that I can pick which one I want. I am also a little disappointed that a few of my favorite albums are missing:( I know there is a lot of songs on there but it would be amazing if you added all the albums from artists (Regional At Best by Twenty One Pilots ;)
Excellent work😜

Where did the repeat song button go???
Neglected AD issue
by Kitty Records on 2019/02/17 04:14
For years now Spotify has refused to address an issue with ads getting stuck on playlists, which ends up stopping the music completely, or completely breaks the device that it’s playing from. Almost crazy how they refuse to look at something so crucial to their app. Either fix your ads or don’t have advertising at all. 🙄
Great app but I wish repeat was not hidden
by Nice awesomeness on 2019/02/17 03:58
I understand that repeat is not technically hidden since it’s in the 3 dot menu but I wish I was able to change shuffle with repeat. I rarely (if ever) use shuffle and I would much rather have the repeat button where shuffle is. I absolutely hate shuffle and that’s one of the main reasons why I went premium. I love the app and its redesign, especially with the Genius annotations of a specific song, it’s almost perfect. I just wish I had the option to replace shuffle with repeat or have both easily accessible within the music cover page. That’s the only flaw that I can see. Everything else is perfect
It's okay...
by Keaton42 on 2019/02/17 03:52
I loved it how I could listen to any song I wanted to, but then again it was super hard to get to the song and play it when I wanted to. Took me a minute to finally play my song I wanted to listen to!
You done messed it all up
by L&TO98 on 2019/02/17 03:49
I used to love this. I had all the songs saved in one place and if I wanted to hear music by just one group for instance Big Daddy Weave I just click on the name and it shows all I had saved by them but now? Do that and you just get the artist pick page and e you may also like. I HAAAAAAAAAATEEEEEEEEEE THIS FIX IT BACK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW please
Good music, but aggressive advertising
by frontline game view on 2019/02/17 03:47
I love this because it is free, but there are ads every f*cking twenty seconds, and it even adds songs to playlists and refuses to allow me to play one song at a time.
Ads
by crunchy potato nuggets on 2019/02/17 03:33
The app is really good…but there’s too many ads.
Feels inferior
by A. Amato on 2019/02/17 03:32
The version on the google play store has a more convenient layout. The version available on iOS has me doing more to get to basic functions that are front and center on the android version. The genius lyrics should be displayed behind the cover art until you switch it to view the lyrics instead of being hidden at the bottom. This is all nit picking but everything about the iOS version feels wrong. Even the spacing of the ‘your library’ tab feels wrong and compact and cramped.
Dislike the like heart/like symbol
by Kittuny on 2019/02/17 03:32
Changes the whole idea of adding the song. Sheesh, this ain’t Facebook or Instagram🙄 Can we just change it back to the plus sign for adding a song into our list? Obviously I “like” a lot of the songs I listen to, but it doesn’t mean I want to add into my “songs” list! I NEVER leave reviews, but I’m a longtime user of Spotify. Since it was beta in the U.S. Please reconsider. Thanks.
New update
by Vanessa Potter on 2019/02/17 03:24
New update is TRASH. The queue list should be easily accessible and instead y’all gave me ANOTHER button to push to go to my queue list. The disrespect. I still ain’t gonna switch to Apple Music but I ain’t happy smh.
New update
by Ryanballard1337 on 2019/02/17 03:21
When I add a song to my library and then add it to a playlist and then unfavorite the song I added in my library it stays on my playlist and i can’t take songs off. It stays in my playlist and there’s no option to “remove song from playlist”. ————————UPDATE———————— It’s cumbersome to remove songs from playlists. If I delet it from “my songs” tab it should delete those songs from my songs and my playlists.

Critique to recent update
by Connor Rajski on 2019/02/17 02:30
I’d like to pre-face this review by saying don’t give me wrong, this app is phenomenal. This review should be 5 stars but it’s not because I hope to offer a little constructive criticism and hope someone will read it The last update made the UI look more sleek and I love it, however one thing that bothers me is the move of the queue function from the top right of the “currently playing” screen to behind the “more” tab (the triple dots at the top right). Instead of one click now it requires 2 to see the queue, which is a slight step back in my opinion. Additionally there is now 2 share buttons, the new one being implemented at the bottom right of the “currently playing” screen, underneath shuffle. The other remains in its original location, behind the “more” tab. I feel like having 2 ways to do the same thing is a little redundant, and I think there can be a little improvement in this area. My suggestion would to be to replace the new share button to the old queue button in its place at the bottom right under “shuffle”, or maybe implement a gesture based queue by swiping up. I know it’s not too big of a deal but having the queue at the bottom instead of the top makes it easy to one-handedly use either hand to bring up the queue, as the top right placement makes for awkward access. I tend to like seeing what songs are coming up next and position songs in order and I think implementation of this would significantly increase the feel and fluidity of the app. Overall amazing app with a massive selection of music and playlists catered to your tastes. The recent UI update the the “currently playing” and “more” screens look very sleek. Thanks!
Bring back the old UI please
by Ben Figuly on 2019/02/17 02:16
I hate this new UI it’s so disorganized and I switched back to Apple Music

This WAS my all time favorite app
by Merida42 on 2019/02/17 01:38
I love Spotify. I logged 23,000 individual songs in 2018. I just cannot get behind the new update. The best feature previously was the “My Library” recently played list in vertical format. It was a list of 30, easy to cultivate. I could delete out the stuff I did not want on there & keep the stuff I did. The new horizontal no edit function is not good. Get the app back to the previous perfect format and I will give you 100 stars and GLADLY pay more money per month!
Can't get rid of it!
by Just does not work! on 2019/02/17 01:37
I don't like the Spotify format. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to delete my account. Think twice before opening an account!

Cumbersome app
by SeattleAttic on 2019/02/17 01:23
The app is OK, but it drives me crazy that I can’t easily edit my playlists. If there’s a song that’s playing, and I want to remove it, I have to go into the playlist and scroll until I find it. In a playlist with 500 or so songs, that’s a pain. We should be able to just hit the three dots and tap a delete function.
Playlists are broken
by TemperedSafe2 on 2019/02/17 01:22
If I’m in my playlist of songs I made, why if I search a song the starts with the letter “P” would I want to only hear songs that have the letter “P” in the title, artist, or album? This is by far one of the stupidest things Spotify has ever done and needs to be fixed asap. Other than that it’s a great app for music and have always liked it until now...
Ability to toggle repeat is missing?
by sombrerosaurus on 2019/02/17 01:10
I’m not sure I understand the logic behind the recent update. The ability to toggle repeat and shuffle on and off is one of my most commonly used functions. With the latest update, the repeat button has been hidden. The ‘like’ button has been given top real estate along with shuffle, but I don’t have any use for that. Liking a track adds it to my library, but most songs I’m listening to have already been added. Please bring repeat back!
i’m irritated right now
by savannah joy mcgee on 2019/02/17 01:09
i don’t know what is going on but spotify won’t let me play my music without me being on the app... it just started doing this.
Please bring back the repeat button without having to press the three dots
by clarkangoeastwood on 2019/02/17 01:05
Please consider bringing back the repeat button on the main volume and skip controls
SIMPLY AWESOME & WORTH IT!!!
by Scarabonback on 2019/02/17 01:01
I heard about Spotify from my bestie and let me tell you . . . enrolling as a member is THE BEST choice for music I could have ever made! You can truly specify your selection(s), and the variety of music is endless. Spotify is waaay better than its competitors and it’s actually the best choice you’ll make when it comes to music! I LOVE IT!
Don’t fix what isn’t broken...
by ZeekFul on 2019/02/17 01:01
This app used to be great at navigating through and looked great. Now, they’ve changed the format and can’t even use the alphabetical scroll through locate artists. It’s become a pain to use. Might as well switch to Apple Music. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Here is the thing
by BelleGold_OUAT on 2019/02/17 00:59
I love Spotify on my laptop, PlayStation, and iPad. I don’t typically mind the adds except when you get like 4-5 in a row. However on my phone I hate it with a passion and let me tell you why; it’s because of the songs you add to my playlist. When I make a playlist I want to here the songs on it and ONLY the songs on it. I have a playlist I made a couple days ago with 11 songs and any time I try and listen to it on my phone I hear anything and everything but those 11 songs because all I hear is what you suggest I should listen to. Now the app wouldn’t be so bad if that went away or was something you could turn off, I personally don’t mind all the stuff the limited skips or that you can only shuffle it. Don’t we me wrong it isn’t my favorite thing in the world but it’s not the worst either what really kills it for me is the suggested songs added to my playlist. If you can do something about it I feel like it would make the app better for everyone using it who just wants to hear their playlist and their music.

Repeat Button

Love the app; don’t like the new update
by End TikTok now on 2019/02/17 00:27
I honestly love this app, and I use it almost everyday. I’m just not the biggest fan of the new update. My main issue with it is the new menu when you open up the song that you’re listening to. Before, you could loop your playlist and your song with the button on the bottom right of the screen, but now, you have to go into a whole separate menu on the top right with the there’s dots. I know, what’s the big deal? Well, that’s one of the features that people use every single time with most songs, so, moving that setting to a whole different area doesn’t really make much sense. Aside from that, the app is great. Overall great quality and good performance.

Disappointing update
by Gloryyy on 2019/02/17 00:18
Wish I hadn’t accidentally updated all my apps. Most recent changes/update to the app were really disappointing. Made everything an extra step, surprised to see that it seemed you took a step backwards with the app. Hope for something at least like a return to the previous version, so you can set a song to repeat right from the play view and access the queue right from the play view again too. Still love Spotify, but hate it on my phone for the time being 🤷🏽‍♀️
I like Spotify cause the premium is not that much and play any song
by Player: Nklander on 2019/02/17 00:17

Bluetooth headphones not compatible
by gndfnjdk on 2019/02/16 23:47
I was listening to music through my Bluetooth headphones and I kept getting notifications to switch to a different device. I live in dorms so hundreds of people use their Bluetooth so I just pressed ignore. My phone immediately started playing some random music and the volume kept changing. Changed my password and disconnected my headphone just to fix it. Overall the Bluetooth function might need work 😒
I’m loving it!
by izel :) on 2019/02/16 23:43
I literally live this app so much! It’s better than pandora or any other app I know! I can choose what I want to hear! I really recommend Spotify for you if you’re working out or want a specific song to play or a specific artist

App works, selection meh
by banjos n beef on 2019/02/16 23:15
I like a lot of the features of this app. I do not like the default shuffle but found how to play albums the way they were designed so that is better. The three stars because The app keeps pushing mainstream music at me. I like indie stuff but the selection is limited. I like bluegrass, this is very limited. My son really likes this app and it plays on my echo devices so I’m keeping it for now.

Exceptional Functionality
by David Von Bondie on 2019/02/16 22:37
Really can’t say enough about the features, playlists, and recommendations offered through the app. Coughing up the additional 10 bucks is worth every penny imo. Spotify offers a lot of underground music you might not expect they would. Cheers!
new update
by kcapert on 2019/02/16 22:30
i use spotify every day, and have for years now, it’s convenient and not too horribly priced either for premium. however this new update is awful! it’s no where near as visually appealing as the last version and i feel like i have to relearn where everything is (the queue, casting to bluetooth devices, etc)! would be 5 stars if not for this update
Glitchy and unstable
by (ANBU)CLINTOCK_tmt on 2019/02/16 22:22
Awful. Unusable and the latest update only made it worse. Songs skip, and that’s if you’re lucky enough for them to even start playing in the first place.

by janya talal on 2019/01/04 18:28
I enjoy the app, but I don’t like how you don’t get notified when someone follows you. What’s the point of notifications or even following people if the person doesn’t even receive the notification? Additionally, it’d be nice to be notified when your favorite artists come out with new music. Also, I think the app should allow you to change the playlist picture and profile picture just as it does when you’re using a computer. I also wish you could add complete albums to your playlist instead of having to manually click on every single song and add it to your playlist. It’s just a waste of time. And it would be so useful if you could search up a song on a playlist instead of having to look through the entire playlist to find it. Another annoying thing is when showing you “recommended songs” and it shows the exact same songs each time. If I’m refreshing the songs, obviously I don’t like them and want new songs to be recommended to me. Lastly, I would like if you could see all the songs that an artist made when first looking at their profile. It shows you their albums, but doesn’t even show you their singles without you having to actually look for them yourself and it just makes it harder to find songs when it could easily be fixed by just adding their singles too. Overall, great app tho.
great app but that update was booty
by HonexHello on 2018/05/21 00:26
why cant you see how many songs are on playlists anymore? or the followers it has? where is the ‘go to album’ thing on the song info? why isnt the song playing off a playlist highlighted in green so you can find it to delete it anymore? why cant you search for songs on playlists anymore? guess i have to scroll through my 500+ song playlist and find the one i want to delete manually because who cares right? i dont have other stuff to do? why change the entire format of the app only to take away functions/info from how it was before? and whats with the ads you cant ‘X-out’ of or minimize? i was trying to manually look for this song i wanted to delete and had to witness with my ears and eyes the napa auto parts parody of jukebox hero, a beloved classic. the artists section used to just play the songs by the artists that were saved, now theyre just a random list of songs not curated by the user. not only that but why cant you add entire albums to playlists anymore? “easier to make playlists” huh? plus my app froze trying to open that big playlist which never happened before. I appreciate the previews coming back but all this stuff that was taken in the last update doesnt make up for it. introducing new features doesnt make people like the app when the stuff they were used to goes away.
I’ve definitely seen better
by Kanata Shihara on 2018/05/26 00:41
This app is great even though it has a great amount of room for improvement it’s great. And I truly don’t mind the audio adds those are fine and this app is awesome especially with new songs every week. It’s deserving of its hype. My problem with this app is the simple fact that without premium you can’t select your own songs. and I’ve even adapted to this, after all if it’s in your playlist it should be a song you like right ? I’ve accepted that and moved on. My BIGGEST problem with this app is once you’re done with the playlist you’ve made it plays songs that are NOT on the playlist and it only lets you play 5 second samples of each song. PLEASE fix this At the very least let me listen to the songs that are actually ON the playlist. Also what’s even worse is that this app takes it upon itself to add songs by itself and once more, play songs NOT on a custom made playlist. And that’s only if you’re lucky like I was the first time. I couldn’t listen to my playlist anymore so I went to my next one. After the third song all I heard was random songs that I haven’t even heard of and were definitely not even related to any of the artists. Please fix
No thanks not worth it
by Loven dis app on 2019/02/09 04:06
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!

I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
I liked the older version
by Dansam44 on 2018/07/31 14:21
I used to love this app but now it’s gotten so frustrating to use. The new update took away a lot of features that made this app nice to use. I almost never listened to playlists or albums, I always shuffle played all the songs I had. Without the “My Songs” section, I feel like I’m listening to the same stuff all the time and it’s annoying to have to constantly go on my phone and switch between albums and playlists. I liked when every song I saved was in one place. And it’s even more frustrating that you can’t albums to playlists anymore. I have to wait until the song actually plays to add it to an already existing playlist. If I want to add an entire album to a playlist I can’t anymore. And now I can’t even play albums because whenever I click on them none of the songs or a play button appears. Idk what’s going on with this app but you guys need to change it back. The new update is terrible and many people are complaining about it so you should listen to your users. I loved this app cause with the amount of music I like, I’d be broke using Apple Music. Please make the app better like it was before cause I do love using it.
shuffle doesn’t really shuffle????
by Jbae820 on 2018/05/27 21:55
literally your description of your app updates is “were always making changes to better your experience” or whatever (i know it’s something akin those lines) and let me just start out by saying you need to fix your whole app and change it back to the way it was. there was absolutely nothing wrong with it before so why you felt the need to change everything and make it trash i’m not sure. every time i try to play a playlist or whatever on SHUFFLE it’s not shuffled. it’s like you have no idea what the hell shuffle means because it’s the same order of songs songs as the last time i listened to it and it’s so annoying especially when i only have six skips and you make my favorite songs so overplayed that it makes me sick to listen to them anymore. and it’s so hard to navigate like i have no idea what i’m doing or where i’m going in the app. and you even made a folder just so you can tell the people who haven’t bought premium to go buy it. like way, we get it, you want money, but you don’t have to be so unnecessarily extra and go that far. i’m sick of your app. don’t be the music app version of snapchat. change it back to where it was and i wont leave another nasty bad review.
Timing out?
by Fallenzero1 on 2018/05/03 23:02
This app was great up until a few updates ago. I’ve held off on posting because I was hoping that te next update or the next would fix the problem I’m having. Almost every time I pause my music for more than a couple minutes, it’s like the app refreshes itself. I can hit the play/pause button all day and it won’t do anything. I have to physically go into the app and restart the music. It’s becoming very frustrating to have to go into the app almost every time I pause my music. Update: the timing out problem has been worse and worse!!! More often than not, when I pause, I have to go back into the app to let it reload. Something else it’s started doing within the last few updates, is sometimes, after it times out a couple times, it will show the time on a song counting up, but the song will not be playing. When I pause it, it jumps back to 0:03, and jumps forward to wherever it was when I hit play again, still with no sound. The only way to fix that is by completely closing out of the app and reopening it. At this point, the only reason I’m still paying $9.99 a month for this is because I don’t have reliable WiFi when I’m not home, and I like to listen while I’m out and about.
ideas
by Ynattirb rekceb on 2018/04/22 15:40
I love this app so much. i use it everyday almost constantly. it always works for me and has all the music i want. when i’m using it though i always think of two things i wish it had. 1) be able to combine playlists together so i don’t have to switch over to a different one while i’m driving. there’s the “add to” option for songs but if you could hold down the playlist and it said “add to” and then you could select playlist you want to add the other to that would actually be the best feature ever. 2) i wish you could change the order of songs singularly in a playlist. with premium i know you can choose whichever song you want to hear next but when i’m sleeping or driving i don’t want to have to manually change it or have it in shuffle. there’s been times i wish i could drag the songs around because i want songs to be heard in a certain order so being able to drag it around while editing the playlist would be awesome!
Great App!
by Penguindayday on 2018/04/03 21:15
I immediately feel in love into this app when I got it! The pros of this app are that the large variety of songs and artist, which is spectacular! I also enjoy listening the fact that you can save as many songs as you'd like. The fact that you are allowed to have the free trial for premium is magnificent, but I have not tried it yet. I also like the fact that you can watch an ad to get rid of advertisements for a half an hour, so I can listen to music without interruptions. However, there are quite a few cons. First, you can't listen to a thirty second preview of new songs, which saved lots of time. Then, there's also the fact that unsaved songs of yours can randomly start playing, which is great for discovering some new songs and artist, but gets irritating when I want to listen to my songs. Other than that, this app is great for playing any song while out of the app, and I'm sure I will still be a user in the future! Keep improving the app to make it better and better!
I love it but...
by andygirl82 on 2018/12/14 03:00
I love the app!! It’s so amazing! It lets me choose songs and shuffle them. It’s got some amazing song options, and I love the idea of having folders of music. I also love how every song is FREE!! I also love the amount of skips I get for the not premium version. I do have two problems though. I swear every two songs there are like 8 ads. Maybe bring it down. I can’t afford premium, and many others can’t, so this is a problem for them too. Maybe play 3 songs then 1 ad. That would be better. The only reason I use Pandora is because they have barely any ads. Another thing, after I’ve finished listening to every song on the playlist, you just play songs that have nothing to do with what I was listening to. Say I have a playlist with a whole bunch Latino songs. Maybe 150. I’ve listened to all of them in shuffle, and then you start playing like, Linken Park or Fall Out Boy. It literally has NOTHING to do with what I was listening to. Maybe fix that. Everything else is fine. Thanks! -Alexa Anderson
One more suggestion...
by Phillip Colligan on 2018/11/26 04:35
I am really loving the new updates… It would be nice to be able to click on the three dots on a song that's playing from your playlist and have the option to delete directly while playing that song from the playlist instead of having to go edit the playlist, find the song and then delete it. The app crashes and also makes me restart my playlist. I wish the playlist would always hold its play point (songs already played during playlist session vs songs left to play) and resume from the streaming service. I wish I could save me play point across each session. Let’s say playlist 1 has 10 songs and playlist 2 has 20 songs. If in pause playlist 1, I want to resume playlist 2 from whatever song it was playing before instead of starting allllll over. When I leave from playing playlist 1 on my Bose at my house, I want to resume in my truck from that same play point or have the option to have playlist 2 play instead.
Library Interface changed, can't find things
by Nostronimo on 2018/05/27 20:00
As a free user I loved it before the recent (may 17th) update and would have given it 5 stars because everything was readily organized where I could easily find albums or music I liked and was similar to the computer app or how the iTunes library looked. more specifically I liked I could somewhat choose what I wanted to listen to at just that current moment with what I've placed in those playlists, with the shuffle and limited skips of course with the occasional random addition of music. Now however I can't find any of that and just have a favorites section that plays everything, or I have to find the artist stuff itself on the mobile app and be forced to listen to all of that, even things I don't like which I can't thumbs down (as far as I can tell) and never have to listen to it again. I can't find anything now, and if I wanted things like this I'd just use the pandora interface where I have some control with the free features on pick choosing what I want and don't want in the list.
Good, free version still disappointing
by taylorlandry0 on 2019/02/02 05:33
The free version of this used to be perfect, but a while ago they decided to remove most of the features for non-premium users. They’ve recently re-implemented some of them (mainly the ability to view your own profile and other people’s profiles & playlists), but it’s still missing a lot of features that used to be available, which is really frustrating. To name a few: you can’t search songs in playlists that you’ve made, can’t make playlists secret, can’t rearrange songs on playlists, can’t play songs in the search menu, can’t read playlist descriptions, and others. You used to be able to do ALL of these things on the free version, and it’s beyond frustrating that they decided to remove all of them. It’s definitely better than it was right after the update with the ability to view profiles reinstated and the overall aesthetic of the app improved slightly, but the rest of these features really should be brought back to free users since they all used to be available.
Would give 5 stars but..
by Monochromedolphin on 2018/10/18 19:33
Something I’ve noticed recently is the constant freezing of the app, seemingly for no reason. I thought it was just a problem my last phone had, clearly not if I have the same issue on my new one. The only way to correct this is to reboot the phone rather than just close and reopen the app to get it to. Another problem is that sometimes the app refuses to play the songs I’ve synced offline even though I have premium. Thereby forcing me to reboot my entire phone just to get the app to work properly again, because just closing the reopening the app does not change anything. This is something I have noticed with the recent updates, because before it had not been an issue or at least not one that was so severe I had to reboot my phone to correct. Also, this is not relevant to what I previously stated, but I find it rather annoying how when you go to a recently played albums it only shows songs in your playlists. It should show all songs on that album not just the ones saved on playlists.
It used to be great
by Daffin Chuck on 2017/11/01 23:37
I've used this app for years and up until a few weeks ago, I loved it, but now it's just frustrating. Whenever I go to listen to one of my playlists, I hear a couple of my songs that I actually put on the playlist and then all that plays are a bunch of random suggested tracks that are often not even related to the kind of music that was originally on the playlist. I can see how (because I don't have premium) playing a few suggested tracks every once in a while might be acceptable but I rarely hear the songs that I have saved or that I even want to listen to anymore. Another thing is that the app now often glitches out. Sometimes it won't load any of the music even when I know that the connection is good. No matter how many times I hit the shuffle button, nothing will play. It will also randomly skip songs without me hitting the skip button or even touching my phone. This used to be such a good music app but now there are so many glitches that it's just not very enjoyable to use anymore.
Sweet and not so cool
by Three_tree88 on 2018/01/17 03:11
Great for iPad and computer but horrible for iPhone. Are you kidding me?? So I can't play whatever I want on an app on my phone without paying premium?? It'd be tight if I can play whatever I want on my phone. Least let me play my playlists without discovering "new" songs that I don't give a crap about. If you force me to shuffle my music and play songs I don't want at least don't make the app free. It's a huge turn off to get a free app only to not really enjoy the app unless you pay premium which is a lot for a mobile app when I can with the same app play whatever I like on my iPad and computer so why can't it be the same for mobile. I recommend it for computer and iPad but for mobile I'd pass unless there is a way for me to play my music even if it's just shuffling without playing music I don't want. Why do this to us who don't want to pay for premium for mobile. I don't really care for music that's "discovering". I just want the music in my library. I don't even mind the ads. I'll stick to pandora for discovering new music.
Changes
by Love156 on 2019/01/21 23:27
When the app was updated they got rid of some the best thing. I would love to see them come back. How many songs are in the playlist, how many followers they have and the search system. I would love to see new changes like putting your playlist in a certain order. With ocd this is very bothersome. I want to put playlist in an order that I use them and move them all around To an order I like not of how they were made. I can’t keep organized. I would also like to see ways to access the radios. When I get tired of my songs and want to find new ones I want to listen to the playlist radio. I have no idea how to get to them. I also think for organizational purposes I would love to see a select button where you can select multiple songs to add them, take away or move to a different playlist. The old features I would love to see come back. I love the app and I’m on it all the time but I would love to see changes to make the experience over all more appealing.
iPad app is better
by DatBoi4423 on 2019/01/07 01:15
When I switched from my iPad to my phone for this app(cuz it’s more portable and has data) there were a lot of things that just weren’t there. I couldn’t skip back and I had a limited amount of skips. I couldn’t choose where/what song on my playlist to start on, and couldn’t turn off shuffle. Also, I’ve realized that I’m getting an add or 2 after each song after listening to this playlist for a few days.(a few hrs a day) Its just annoying to have that many adds cuz it really messes up the flow. Plz make it like how it was a few years back with the adds, like 2 adds for every 5 songs, but otherwise the app is pretty good. But the only other thing is that song a that I’ve never added to my playlist are popping up out of nowhere, and it’s kinda annoying cuz when you run out of skips, it’s almost guaranteed that if you don’t select the do not play button, that it W I L L play when you run out of skips. But otherwise, great app but 5* for iPad and more like 3* for iPhone cuz the adds and skips, but ya great app.
Good but
by galaga champion on 2019/01/21 00:06
Its a great app that I use all the time! I do wish that I could see how many songs are on a playlist and be able to search songs on a playlist. I don't mind the adds much but the inability to change from shuffle to playing in order unlike the computer version is annoying. There are also some songs I like that aren’t on there but I suppose that might not be your fault. I have also been having a problem where it would show the next song playing but then it was just silence and if I paused it then the amount of time passed would go back down to zero and it would play more silence, I usually have to skip the song or keep messing with it until it works. Also a cool feature you should add is being able to change the main background color from black to different colors its not important I just think it would be nice. Edit: it stopped doing the glitch so yay
All songs?
by SpicyPeaches on 2018/12/27 21:23
It’s an awesome app to listen to music, but you can’t see all the songs by an artist. Only the most popular and latest release. That makes it almost impossible to find some songs. You should be able to search songs from an artist. Also, it reset my entire app! I went on to play some music and then it made me log in. Apparently, it didn’t save my account. Now I have none of my saved songs or any playlists. I also wish there was diversity all the recommended songs are immediately rap and pop music. I myself am NOT a fan of rap or pop. I know there a lot of other types of music and people who feel how I feel about those genres, there should be a mix. Like instead of always making it Ariana Grande, XXX, Drake, e.t.c (I swear I learned pop and rap music from your recommendations.)there could be some Vance Joy, Alt-J (Δ), The Lumineers. That would be nice. Also having a page to access queue easier would be great. Lastly, there should be a page where lesser known artists could get known.
Could use some work, otherwise good
by anon1946372 on 2018/03/11 04:50
As a music streaming app, it works great. I can deal with ads and limited skips, or pay for premium. It isn't perfect and it has its issues but I want to specifically address this one. The way the playlist radio functions is absolute garbage unless you pay for premium. If you like a song, you can never undo that action and liked songs will repeatedly show up when you use the radio, thus forcing you to listen to it or waste one of your already limited skips. I have songs I liked months ago still showing up, regardless of whether they're in my playlist or not. Songs that I don't want to hear constantly. This makes it difficult to discover new music without wasting my time. I understand that as a free user I shouldn't be able to skip everything, but making me deal with this is insult to injury. The least you could do is take these songs out of the queue, or allow us to "unlike" them.
Please help
by Uni_love11505 on 2018/06/28 09:44
Please help me. I downloaded the app but for some reason I can’t make an account. I got the button to do so and nothing happened. I tried to hit the button to log in to see if that one worked but it didn’t. If someone can help me, please do. Thank-you! Edit: I finally got it to work ( lol ) and I love it!! I can listen to my music without needing a subscription like some other music apps I have downloaded. The ads are a little annoying but at least you CAN get rid of them :). The fact you can download any song you want is great! I can listen to my k-pop and then a 2018 hit right after and that’s amazing! The other folder things ( I don’t know what to call them ( sorry ) ) are good because you can listen to new music you haven’t heard before. Sure you listen to a lot of music you don’t like but you find songs you do like quite a bit :). All in all, I love the app even with its few cons. 🙃
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
So when I first found this app (when it first came out) I thought it was the best in the world 😍. It had features that no other music app did, primarily the ability to listen to your music while offline. I have given rave reviews to numerous friends over the years. I have 2 accounts, 1 free and 1 premium. I hadn’t used my free one in a while and needed to change some settings on a couple playlists. When I signed into my other account, the layout was completely different!! I cannot see the songs in my playlist (as I could previously), I can’t make any changes to my playlists. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO HAVE A PLAYLIST THAT YOU CANNOT EDIT. Please fix this, the layout is not user friendly, it’s cheesy looking and critical settings I was previously able to change are no longer available. I will be in the process of cancelling my premium account as well as telling my other friends with premium accounts about a better app. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can still actually stream music (as do many other FREE music services).
Followed Artists & Lagging
by Mayaily123 on 2019/01/28 03:33
All the artists that I am following immediately disappear, as soon as I go on one of their profiles it says that I’m not following them and I’m not sure if that’s a glitch or if I’ve reached the maximum amount… But it needs to change. This has been going on for over a year. I’ve been a premium member for five years and have never had this problem. Also with the newest update, I’ve noticed when I play songs it lags when I try to shuffle to another song or go to another artists profile. Or when I’m adding a song to a playlist, there will be a long pause instead of adding it right away. But when I first start the app after I’ve had it closed out, it’s fast. Then as I do more things on it or add to playlists, it gets slower. If I press to add a song to a playlist, it’ll have a long pause before it loads my playlists. If I slide the time of the song and fast forward a bit, it pauses in between. It’s just annoying. I have an iPhone XS Max so... I’d assume it would be faster but.
Nice App
by Notorious M.I.T. on 2018/10/09 02:37
Just some things I kinda want, instead of lyrics and tidbits on the song can there just be lyrics so I can sing along without wondering what the exact lyrics are 😅 if possible jump into a song a friend is currently listening to at the same spot and time they are listing to 😅 live group/couple listening 😆 probably too much to ask. Just want more social/intimate. Over all great clean app, no problems like running into covers you don’t want to listen to or misleading titles of tracks, you get the exact song you want every time, harder to find certain underground tracks but there’s a good amount that you’d be surprised is on this app, the app is super organized and clean you never feel lost, I love this app, for the longest time I wasn’t sure about premium but once I was in it’s so nice hard to turn back, bit of a luxury but I don’t mind it, I’ll stay here till I get pointed to something better 😜
Love the app but hate the new update
by Goldless1 on 2018/08/03 10:43
I was listening to music on my PS4 when I realized that you guys deleted like 200+ of my music. Like why would you do that or have an update that does that. An its only for the phone. All my music is on the PS4 but when I go past or try to past the 800 song I can’t get to it ( on the phone I mean) . Plus, I have the app on automatic updates so I couldn’t choose weather I wanted to update it or not. I would love if you just put it back like the way it was. I use this app a lot between my Iphone and my PS4. I feel like it was much more convenient the way it was before. I have to admit the fact that I couldn’t see the rest of my song kinda forced me into writing this review I literally never do these but I felt like I had to in this case since I use this app sooo much. And the whole app this way is something I feel like I won’t be able to get used to with the way that it is set up now . Thank You for Coming to my TED TALK
Change this please
by Hoi m8 on 2019/01/28 05:24
Holy heck, this new update is annoying as heck, the like/save button is where the button to push the song info up used to be, and I have a device that doesn’t have cellular service/data, and I was in the car, and I was so annoyed, because I was not used to the new save button position, and then every 10-12 minutes I would accidentally unsave a song, and considering the car we have doesn’t have a personal WiFi (I don’t think any cars have a personal WiFi hotspot,), so I couldn’t listen to that song until we got back, and the songs that were unsaved were literally my favorite songs out of the whole saved songs list. The same thing happened on the airplane and I couldn’t listen to that song for the next 5 hours... Please remove this, a lot of people have, will and are complaining about this along with me, so please remove it or move it somewhere else. -Angry person with name not stated
Great App but Preview Feature Is Gone!
by Ebr2002 on 2017/11/16 23:25
I love this app. It’s my primary music platform and has been for years now. I’m a premium subscriber and think it’s a great value for what you get, at least if you listen to even half as much music as I do (which is a lot, admittedly, but still...$10 a month of unlimited access to all songs, all playlists I or any other user has ever created, etc, all for the price of a single iTunes album? I used to buy at least one and sometimes tons more each month on iTunes. Now I pay $10 and that’s it. Nice. So why only 4 stars? They took my beloved Preview feature away. I loved being able to tap and hold on a particular song and hear a good 30 seconds of it without actually having to add it to the queue or play it all the way through. Or tap an album and preview most or all of the songs on it before committing to actually playing everything in full. It was great. And I want it back. Please?
Mmm
by AlphfaWulf on 2018/11/15 23:41
So, one it won’t even let me install the app on my iPad, it keeps saying an unknown error has occurred please try again. So I do, and it still doesn’t work. Two, the actual app has way too many ads, for example there is one that says “Tap now to get 30 minutes with no ads” so obviously I click it while thing ends, I listen to my song, and boom. Ad. Right there in the middle of my listening. Three, I feel like you don’t have enough skips or that there is something in the algorithm that makes it so you have all of the songs you don’t want to listen to and then you land on a song you hate (if that makes any sense at all) I believe it’s only 5 skips but even still. Four, I don’t like how it just takes a short playlist of your, say 5 songs, and when you play it, it plays ‘suggested songs’. I have a playlist so that I can listen to all the songs I want one right after the other, not so that you can just be like oH hEy, LeTs PlAy ThIs SoNg nOw. Anyway, I probably have more to complain about,I just can’t think of it off the top of my head.
ZERO STARS until further NOTICE!.!.!
by ANGfilmz on 2018/09/28 07:00
The last couple of updates are nothing more than a nuisance! I used to love this app, I didn’t care if it was on a premium account or free but the last few updates made using the app a little unbearable in a few ways. There’s NO LONGER a ‘MY SONGS’ TAB which makes the app less pleasurable to use. I can no longer see SPECIFIC SOMGS under an artist WITHOUT HAVING to FOLLOW the artist and LIKE ALL of their songs. I literally go to my ‘ARTIST’ TAB and DON’T see ANY of the songs I like, and I’m FORCED to play ALL of the artist’s songs INSTEAD of the many that I only LIKE by the artist. I DON’t want to HAVE to make a PLAYLIST every time I want to hear only 23 of the 84 tracks from a single artist it’s RIDICULOUS. It also PLAYS the EXACT same SONGS over and over even when in shuffle. The updates took over half of my songs away and I’m LIVID. And it RANDOMLY plays songs and artists that have NOTHING to do with the playlist or genre I’m TRYING to listen to. This app needs to return back to it’s former glory I’ve been really fighting for this app. People try to sway me over to PANDORA but I DON’T want to resort to using that crud.
Amazing App just two issues
by Magzzsszzzzssss9726😒 on 2018/03/30 17:06
I love this app and as a premium subscriber it suns even better. However, there's been a really annoying glitch that doesn't allow me add more songs to a playlist I just created. The number of songs isn't even the issue because it will simply not register my tap and if it does it will freeze and not add the song to the newly created playlist. This has been going for a few weeks now. Apart from this there use to be an amazing preview feature that allowed you to press on a song without playing or queuing it and it'd give you a 30 second preview of it-please bring this back it saved a lot of time. Aside from these issues though I strongly recommend this app, especially if you decide on premium. You can listen to your favorite songs in any order while offline and while traveling (airplane or road trips).
Love app but just a few tweaks
by CES112 on 2018/09/13 14:50
I love the app! Last night I was listening to my songs on my library, I went to the queue to remove some songs I didn’t want to play next. It worked for a few but then as I removed more, they wouldn’t be removed of the list. I had to exit the app move around within the app and then try it again. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Please fix! Suggestion as well, I have so many songs in my personal library and every month or so my “favorite songs” frequently change. I wish we could “favorite songs” (maybe add a star or a heart for selection) and they would automatically be placed into a playlist. I know we can create playlists, I tried but it’s a hassle adding songs to playlists, that way I can easily enjoy which songs I listen to non-stop by just easily heart-ing or star-ring a song.
I hate it!
by HeyCanada on 2019/02/15 06:58
What did you guys do? My iPad app was fine until you did your updated day ago. Now I have lost access to all 8000+ songs. First you had to go and change how the phone app works and now you change how the iPad app works. I have never been a premium user and don’t want to be one. I have been able to use this app with the free account for the past few years and have really enjoyed it. Now, I’m going to have to say goodbye because of your update. I don’t want to listen to individual songs nor do I want to listen to my music through a radio station or playlist. I want to be able to access all my songs and shuffle them like I used to. Just because you get money from your premium members doesn’t mean you need to make it miserable for your free members. This app used to be the number one place I went to for my music, but I can’t do that now. Here’s a tip, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it! Also, please tell people what they’re getting with each update. Had I known that you were going to completely change the iPad app, I wouldn’t have updated it in the first place.
Annoyed
by anonynousme on 2018/08/09 23:32
When I first had this app it’s was great I could look up what ever song and wanted and play it right then and there but the app changed and I can’t play the song I want when I want I have to shuffle through the playlist and if I don’t like a song in the playlist and try to hit shuffle again it won’t change the song so I have to listen to stuff I don’t want to. Also when you go to your personal playlist you have to shuffle instead of chose the song you want to listen to even though it’s your own playlist and it should let you click on a song and listen to it. The extra songs in your playlist are also annoying because I just want to listen to the songs I chose and not something so coming back to the shuffle issue when it shuffles to the extra songs area I can’t change to song even if I press shuffle again and end up listening to music I’ve never heard or like. Sorry for being so negative but this has been bothering me for a while and I considering getting rid of the app.
Annoying Bugs, So-so Navigation
by BereanTRB on 2018/01/13 17:31
Overall, this app is quite good. I like the flexibility and general ease-of-use. But there are some bugs that hamper the experience. The most annoying one is while using the search feature the back navigation buttons can disappear. It’s then impossible to go back and do another search. The app will eventually reset and make search available again but only if you force quit the app (which doesn’t always work) or wait a while until iOS restarts the app on its own. This is a major bug and I hope they fix soon. Another problem is that long titles get cut off in most screens and there’s really no way to see them. They definitely need to fix that. Also, I’m very glad they included an EQ. They didn’t have to do that; major props for doing so. But I do wish you could save custom settings and you didn’t have to dive so deep into the menus to get to it. Otherwise the app is OK but there is still much room for improvement.
Great App With Room for Improvement
by londynelise on 2017/09/30 21:49
So, I love this app. I’m a college student and I love how premium is only $4.99/month. However, there are some things I wish yall would improve about this app: 1. When we are listening to a playlist and do a search to add something to the queue, as soon as we add the song it closes the search. If I want to add multiple songs by one artist I have to do the search again and again. Just keep the search up until we are done adding to the queue and let us close it. I don’t think that would be hard to add. 2. After adding a song to the queue and the playlist moves on to the next song, if we go back to listen again it goes to the song that came on before the song added to the queue. Just keep it in the queue, sometimes I want to listen to a song multiple times. Overall this is a great app but those two things are just irritating in my opinion.
Great service, but new interface is garbage and search is worse
by an avid user on 2018/12/07 14:36
Another app that provides a fantastic service but thinks “innovation” is creating another echo chamber that feels like social media. I don’t need you to bastardize my browsing experience by reminding me of my personal playlists I just listened to. I know what playlists I have, because I made them and I listen to them. And, there’s already a tab for it in my library, right there! I go to “browse” for OTHER playlists and see what else is popular in the world, beyond my bubble. The “tailored” playlists aren’t “innovation”, it’s just another echo chamber. Also, y’all clearly take a ton of analytics on the music I listen to... but I can’t have a play count on my playlists, or see any of my usage like iTunes allows? I don’t need to be offered a “tailored” playlist that’s 95% songs I already have in a personal playlist, but it’d be nice for me to be able to actually reflect on what I listen to and how often - beyond the terrible “year in review” playlists that get pushed out every December.
Good but it needs some work
by L.I.L. on 2018/04/20 12:33
Now, I love this app. I can listen to my music in peace and I have countless songs to choose from. Except for the fact that I can't choose them. If I use my tablet or computer then I can pick what songs I want to listen to but if I'm using my iPhone then I'm stuck with whatever song they give me when I hit shuffle. That includes all the "discover new songs" that they play. I understand giving a few suggestions every now and then but it is ridiculous because if you have less than 10 songs in your playlist, odds are you won't even hear your songs, just music that doesn't relate to your playlist. I get how Premium would allow you to download and remove ads. I wouldn't even mind it if you had to get it to pick a specific track. But at least let me choose to go back a song or just let me play songs in my playlist. Also, they offer a 30 minute ad free thing every now and then but it doesn't work.
The app might as well be completely broken.
by everyworthwhilenicknameistaken on 2018/10/19 20:54
There are an overwhelming number of negatives to positives with this app, it feels completely broken at best. I can listen to the songs I have saved hardly a fraction of the time, because otherwise the app completely floods me with suggested songs, and most of which have absolutely nothing in common with my saved songs. If I’m really lucky, I get about ten suggested songs for every two songs I have saved that the app lets me listen to. Most of the time though, it won’t even play a single song I have saved to any playlist, or even if I’m trying to directly listen to an album, or from an artist. If I mark certain songs not to be played, the app still plays them anyway, making that feature absolutely worthless. The ads, for some reason, are at least twice as loud as the songs. The menus feel clunky and inconvenient at best. This app is barely functioning, and it keeps getting worse with each update. You’re way better off opting for Pandora or some other app that actually works and does what it’s meant to.
A disaster for slow connection and airplane mode users.
by Nuka Kola on 2018/02/02 11:00
I live in a poor cell signal area and therefore use this app a bit differently. When starting the app up with cellular on, it takes 30-60 sec for it to bring up my music (i.e an age and a half). If I forget to engage airplane mode before starting, I have to quit the app, engage it, and restart, which also takes a bit of time but is much faster than waiting. If the app loads all my music data from local storage in airplane mode anyway, I don’t understand why it cannot just do the same when on cellular and THEN wait for network updates, instead of keeping me waiting for the network updates while forcing me to stare at an empty screen. That’s just bad design. Now, because I pretty much have to use it with airplane mode (AM) due to silliness described above, I’ve run into a few things that just don’t work with AM engaged. Sometimes it simply refuses to play music (of course I’m talking about pre-downloaded tracks) and hangs there. This forces me to restart it, sometimes multiple times, until it decides to play again. Then the lock screen mini player will not show track progress, and the little dot stays at 0:00 throughout playback. At times when the progress is shown, it is nigh impossible to grab the little scrubber and drag it to the desired track time. Do you guys not use your own products?! Lastly, there is never any update notes. Sorry, but no notes, no star; it is as simple as that.
I love this app but...
by BM022020 on 2018/12/15 19:18
This app is amazing, I can listen to all my favorite songs when I want and it’s great for taking long trips that I have to drive which I do very often. I also love using it while doing homework. There are only two downsides to this app. Lately when it offers the 30mins of unlimited listening without adds and I click to watch the add it just goes right back to my music and doesn’t let me listen without adds. The other thing is that I don’t have the money to pay for the monthly Prime. I’m only 16 I don’t have a job or a bank account that I can pay for the unlimited music. Yes, I understand that they have to have some way to pay for the app to still be up I just wish there was another way for me to get the unlimited music without adds and be able to listen offline. But other than those two things I love this app and would recommend it to anyone.
Could have some improvements
by Kim.m.1868 on 2018/02/12 03:18
I’ve been using this app for a few years and I loved it until recently. I hate making a playlist and not even hearing any of the music on it. I, personally, love musicals and try to listen to my favorites but I can’t. I don’t want to hear music from rappers when I’m listening to the music I was hoping I could hear. Also, I don’t appreciate getting false advertisement. I can’t be told to listen to an ad and get 30 minutes of ad-free music but have to sit through 5 ads, listen to three songs and get another 4 ads. I would really love to see a listen history. I don’t have premium and I usually leave my music playing off my speaker and phone when I leave the room so if I come back at the end of the song, and I like it, I want to be able to come back and find the song.
Where’s the “Downloaded” Folder???!
by CuteFlower1224 on 2018/07/14 05:07
I’ve been waiting for the feature to come back update after update but the “Downloaded” folder still hasn’t come back yet. I like to download new full albums and playlists before a long trip so I can listen to them all during the ride but it’s tedious to have to scroll through the entire album and playlist lists just to find the ones that I downloaded. It would be a lot easier to just have the downloaded folder back so I can see all the ones I had downloaded in one place. Also, it would be nice to have that right swipe delete feature when it comes to editing playlists. It think it would be a lot easier to do that to delete songs from a playlist instead of having to click the edit button then click on those red circles and then press delete every time I wanted to edit a playlist.
Sure
by Mempybot on 2018/05/31 11:04
I don’t think the user interface is the most intuitive. (Since when does “liking” or “hearting” something grant you access to it?) The “shuffle” ain’t random, either. (Listen to a 150+ song playlist on two different days and the first five songs play in the exact same order each time?) Their algorithm could use some work. Like radio stations, I assume they only have rights to play content in accordance with the specific buyer-distributor agreement for the content, but Jaysus. The ads are disorienting, too, but that’s not something I can really fault them for. They gotta make money somehow, or they can’t pay artists. (I just hope they’re not ripping artists off. I hope they pay what they genuinely think is fair for the content and not just the cheapest offer they can get away with.) It’s still the only service I know of that lets friends collaborate to build a playlist.

Useless Creating Playlist

New Update - more complicated interface
by DanDüma on 2019/02/17 06:56
It’s now less convenient to make songs repeat / shuffle than on previous versions. It’d be great to have that functionality back!
I hate the last update
by Cakethebesybunny on 2019/02/17 06:46
Before we had the save button the shuffle and repeat all in the the same area! It was so easy why you had to take the dumb repeat out and hide in the 3 dots? And does the heart now applies for saving? I hate it please fix it!

PLEASE BRING BACK QUEUE
by Zachlmiller on 2019/02/17 06:03
I understand the updates you made but the fact that you can’t see you’re queue with one touch is annoying. I hope you guys could add a little place somewhere to put that cause it’s something I look at frequently.
update switcheroo
by Mason Blake on 2019/02/17 05:56
love the app, but why did the repeat & queue buttons go into hiding? they were perfect + accessible right where they were, and especially if you have an iPhone X it’s cumbersome to reach the now 3-step process to use the queue. don’t fix what ain’t broke, yunno?
Bring back the reply button!
by tngo27 on 2019/02/17 05:52
If I’m paying for premium, I should be able to have the replay button. Why did it go away??
Removing a song/shuffle button
by Blitz0Zero on 2019/02/17 05:44
When trying to delete a song it’s a hassle to find the song to delete. This has been an issue ever since I had this app. Also this most recent update has made it harder to delete songs since before it would highlight the song that was playing and you can then go and edit the playing and find the song. Also the shuffle button plays the same 20 songs in my playlist every time even though the playlist has over 400 songs in it.
Sleep timer
by Smartlax00 on 2019/02/17 05:24
Needs a sleep timer like Pandora has so it won’t play for 8 hours straight when I fall asleep while it’s playing.

by tyler2beast on 2019/02/17 04:48
I’ve been using Spotify for about a month and I am glad I started using it. I just wish that premium was not so expensive. But I love using it and I will keep on using it.

MORE ALBUMS PLZZZ

I love Spotify and making my own playlists. The daily mixes are awesome too and I love that I can pick which one I want. I am also a little disappointed that a few of my favorite albums are missing:( I know there is a lot of songs on there but it would be amazing if you added all the albums from artists (Regional At Best by Twenty One Pilots ;)
Excellent work😜

Neglected AD issue
by Kitty Records on 2019/02/17 04:14
For years now Spotify has refused to address an issue with ads getting stuck on playlists, which ends up stopping the music completely, or completely breaks the device that it’s playing from. Almost crazy how they refuse to look at something so crucial to their app. Either fix your ads or don’t have advertising at all. 🙄
Great app but I wish repeat was not hidden
by Nice awesomeness on 2019/02/17 03:58
I understand that repeat is not technically hidden since it’s in the 3 dot menu but I wish I was able to change shuffle with repeat. I rarely (if ever) use shuffle and I would much rather have the repeat button where shuffle is. I absolutely hate shuffle and that’s one of the main reasons why I went premium. I love the app and its redesign, especially with the Genius annotations of a specific song, it’s almost perfect. I just wish I had the option to replace shuffle with repeat or have both easily accessible within the music cover page. That’s the only flaw that I can see. Everything else is perfect
It's okay...
by Keaton42 on 2019/02/17 03:52
I loved it how I could listen to any song I wanted to, but then again it was super hard to get to the song and play it when I wanted to. Took me a minute to finally play my song I wanted to listen to!
You done messed it all up
by L&TO98 on 2019/02/17 03:49
I used to love this. I had all the songs saved in one place and if I wanted to hear music by just one group for instance Big Daddy Weave I just click on the name and it shows all I had saved by them but now? Do that and you just get the artist pick page and e you may also like. I HAAAAAAAAAATEEEEEEEEEE THIS FIX IT BACK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW please
Good music, but aggressive advertising
by frontline game view on 2019/02/17 03:47
I love this because it is free, but there are ads every f*cking twenty seconds, and it even adds songs to playlists and refuses to allow me to play one song at a time.
Ads
by crunchy potato nuggets on 2019/02/17 03:33
The app is really good…but there’s too many ads.
Feels inferior
by A. Amato on 2019/02/17 03:32
The version on the google play store has a more convenient layout. The version available on iOS has me doing more to get to basic functions that are front and center on the android version. The genius lyrics should be displayed behind the cover art until you switch it to view the lyrics instead of being hidden at the bottom. This is all nit picking but everything about the iOS version feels wrong. Even the spacing of the ‘your library’ tab feels wrong and compact and cramped.
Dislike the like heart/like symbol
by Kittuny on 2019/02/17 03:32
Changes the whole idea of adding the song. Sheesh, this ain’t Facebook or Instagram🙄 Can we just change it back to the plus sign for adding a song into our list? Obviously I “like” a lot of the songs I listen to, but it doesn’t mean I want to add into my “songs” list! I NEVER leave reviews, but I’m a longtime user of Spotify. Since it was beta in the U.S. Please reconsider. Thanks.
New update
by Vanessa Potter on 2019/02/17 03:24
New update is TRASH. The queue list should be easily accessible and instead y’all gave me ANOTHER button to push to go to my queue list. The disrespect. I still ain’t gonna switch to Apple Music but I ain’t happy smh.
New update
by Ryanballard1337 on 2019/02/17 03:21
When I add a song to my library and then add it to a playlist and then unfavorite the song I added in my library it stays on my playlist and i can’t take songs off. It stays in my playlist and there’s no option to “remove song from playlist”. ————————UPDATE———————— It’s cumbersome to remove songs from playlists. If I delet it from “my songs” tab it should delete those songs from my songs and my playlists.

Critique to recent update
by Connor Rajski on 2019/02/17 02:30
I’d like to pre-face this review by saying don’t give me wrong, this app is phenomenal. This review should be 5 stars but it’s not because I hope to offer a little constructive criticism and hope someone will read it The last update made the UI look more sleek and I love it, however one thing that bothers me is the move of the queue function from the top right of the “currently playing” screen to behind the “more” tab (the triple dots at the top right). Instead of one click now it requires 2 to see the queue, which is a slight step back in my opinion. Additionally there is now 2 share buttons, the new one being implemented at the bottom right of the “currently playing” screen, underneath shuffle. The other remains in its original location, behind the “more” tab. I feel like having 2 ways to do the same thing is a little redundant, and I think there can be a little improvement in this area. My suggestion would to be to replace the new share button to the old queue button in its place at the bottom right under “shuffle”, or maybe implement a gesture based queue by swiping up. I know it’s not too big of a deal but having the queue at the bottom instead of the top makes it easy to one-handedly use either hand to bring up the queue, as the top right placement makes for awkward access. I tend to like seeing what songs are coming up next and position songs in order and I think implementation of this would significantly increase the feel and fluidity of the app. Overall amazing app with a massive selection of music and playlists catered to your tastes. The recent UI update the the “currently playing” and “more” screens look very sleek. Thanks!
Bring back the old UI please
by Ben Figuly on 2019/02/17 02:16
I hate this new UI it’s so disorganized and I switched back to Apple Music

This WAS my all time favorite app
by Merida42 on 2019/02/17 01:38
I love Spotify. I logged 23,000 individual songs in 2018. I just cannot get behind the new update. The best feature previously was the “My Library” recently played list in vertical format. It was a list of 30, easy to cultivate. I could delete out the stuff I did not want on there & keep the stuff I did. The new horizontal no edit function is not good. Get the app back to the previous perfect format and I will give you 100 stars and GLADLY pay more money per month!
Can't get rid of it!

Cumbersome app
by SeattleAttic on 2019/02/17 01:23
The app is OK, but it drives me crazy that I can’t easily edit my playlists. If there’s a song that’s playing, and I want to remove it, I have to go into the playlist and scroll until I find it. In a playlist with 500 or so songs, that’s a pain. We should be able to just hit the three dots and tap a delete function.
Playlists are broken
by TemperedSafe2 on 2019/02/17 01:22
If I’m in my playlist of songs I made, why if I search a song the starts with the letter “P” would I want to only hear songs that have the letter “P” in the title, artist, or album? This is by far one of the stupidest things Spotify has ever done and needs to be fixed asap. Other than that it’s a great app for music and have always liked it until now...
Ability to toggle repeat is missing?
by sombrerosaurus on 2019/02/17 01:10
I’m not sure I understand the logic behind the recent update. The ability to toggle repeat and shuffle on and off is one of my most commonly used functions. With the latest update, the repeat button has been hidden. The ‘like’ button has been given top real estate along with shuffle, but I don’t have any use for that. Liking a track adds it to my library, but most songs I’m listening to have already been added. Please bring repeat back!
i’m irritated right now
by savannah joy mcgee on 2019/02/17 01:09
i don’t know what is going on but spotify won’t let me play my music without me being on the app... it just started doing this.
Please bring back the repeat button without having to press the three dots

SIMPLY AWESOME & WORTH IT!!!
by Scarabonback on 2019/02/17 01:01
I heard about Spotify from my bestie and let me tell you . . . enrolling as a member is THE BEST choice for music I could have ever made! You can truly specify your selection(s), and the variety of music is endless. Spotify is waaay better than its competitors and it’s actually the best choice you’ll make when it comes to music! I LOVE IT!
Don’t fix what isn’t broken...
by ZeekFul on 2019/02/17 01:01
This app used to be great at navigating through and looked great. Now, they’ve changed the format and can’t even use the alphabetical scroll through locate artists. It’s become a pain to use. Might as well switch to Apple Music. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Here is the thing
by BelleGold_OUAT on 2019/02/17 00:59
I love Spotify on my laptop, PlayStation, and iPad. I don’t typically mind the adds except when you get like 4-5 in a row. However on my phone I hate it with a passion and let me tell you why; it’s because of the songs you add to my playlist. When I make a playlist I want to here the songs on it and ONLY the songs on it. I have a playlist I made a couple days ago with 11 songs and any time I try and listen to it on my phone I hear anything and everything but those 11 songs because all I hear is what you suggest I should listen to. Now the app wouldn’t be so bad if that went away or was something you could turn off, I personally don’t mind all the stuff the limited skips or that you can only shuffle it. Don’t we me wrong it isn’t my favorite thing in the world but it’s not the worst either what really kills it for me is the suggested songs added to my playlist. If you can do something about it I feel like it would make the app better for everyone using it who just wants to hear their playlist and their music.

Love the app; don’t like the new update
by End TikTok now on 2019/02/17 00:27
I honestly love this app, and I use it almost everyday. I’m just not the biggest fan of the new update. My main issue with it is the new menu when you open up the song that you’re listening to. Before, you could loop your playlist and your song with the button on the bottom right of the screen, but now, you have to go into a whole separate menu on the top right with the there’s dots. I know, what’s the big deal? Well, that’s one of the features that people use every single time with most songs, so, moving that setting to a whole different area doesn’t really make much sense. Aside from that, the app is great. Overall great quality and good performance.

Disappointing update
by Gloryyy on 2019/02/17 00:18
Wish I hadn’t accidentally updated all my apps. Most recent changes/update to the app were really disappointing. Made everything an extra step, surprised to see that it seemed you took a step backwards with the app. Hope for something at least like a return to the previous version, so you can set a song to repeat right from the play view and access the queue right from the play view again too. Still love Spotify, but hate it on my phone for the time being 🤷🏽‍♀️
I like Spotify cause the premium is not that much and play any song
by Player: Nklander on 2019/02/17 00:17
In my opinion Spotify is the best app for music. But, there's only one problem for me is that you can't delete songs from your playlist.

Bluetooth headphones not compatible
by gndfnjdk on 2019/02/16 23:47
I was listening to music through my Bluetooth headphones and I kept getting notifications to switch to a different device. I live in dorms so hundreds of people use their Bluetooth so I just pressed ignore. My phone immediately started playing some random music and the volume kept changing. Changed my password and disconnected my headphone just to fix it. Overall the Bluetooth function might need work 😒
I’m loving it!

App works, selection meh
by banjos n beef on 2019/02/16 23:15
I like a lot of the features of this app. I do not like the default shuffle but found how to play albums the way they were designed so that is better. The three stars because The app keeps pushing mainstream music at me. I like indie stuff but the selection is limited. I like bluegrass, this is very limited. My son really likes this app and it plays on my echo devices so I’m keeping it for now.

Really can’t say enough about the features, playlists, and recommendations offered through the app. Coughing up the additional 10 bucks is worth every penny imo. Spotify offers a lot of underground music you might not expect they would. Cheers!
new update
by kcapert on 2019/02/16 22:30
i use spotify every day, and have for years now, it’s convenient and not too horribly priced either for premium. however this new update is awful! it’s no where near as visually appealing as the last version and i feel like i have to relearn where everything is (the queue, casting to bluetooth devices, etc)! would be 5 stars if not for this update
Glitchy and unstable
by (ANBU)CLINTOCK_tmt on 2019/02/16 22:22

by janya talal on 2019/01/04 18:28
I enjoy the app, but I don’t like how you don’t get notified when someone follows you. What’s the point of notifications or even following people if the person doesn’t even receive the notification? Additionally, it’d be nice to be notified when your favorite artists come out with new music. Also, I think the app should allow you to change the playlist picture and profile picture just as it does when you’re using a computer. I also wish you could add complete albums to your playlist instead of having to manually click on every single song and add it to your playlist. It’s just a waste of time. And it would be so useful if you could search up a song on a playlist instead of having to look through the entire playlist to find it. Another annoying thing is when showing you “recommended songs” and it shows the exact same songs each time. If I’m refreshing the songs, obviously I don’t like them and want new songs to be recommended to me. Lastly, I would like if you could see all the songs that an artist made when first looking at their profile. It shows you their albums, but doesn’t even show you their singles without you having to actually look for them yourself and it just makes it harder to find songs when it could easily be fixed by just adding their singles too. Overall, great app tho.
great app but that update was booty
by HonexHello on 2018/05/21 00:26
why cant you see how many songs are on playlists anymore? or the followers it has? where is the ‘go to album’ thing on the song info? why isnt the song playing off a playlist highlighted in green so you can find it to delete it anymore? why cant you search for songs on playlists anymore? guess i have to scroll through my 500+ song playlist and find the one i want to delete manually because who cares right? i dont have other stuff to do? why change the entire format of the app only to take away functions/info from how it was before? and whats with the ads you cant ‘X-out’ of or minimize? i was trying to manually look for this song i wanted to delete and had to witness with my ears and eyes the napa auto parts parody of jukebox hero, a beloved classic. the artists section used to just play the songs by the artists that were saved, now theyre just a random list of songs not curated by the user. not only that but why cant you add entire albums to playlists anymore? “easier to make playlists” huh? plus my app froze trying to open that big playlist which never happened before. I appreciate the previews coming back but all this stuff that was taken in the last update doesnt make up for it. introducing new features doesnt make people like the app when the stuff they were used to goes away.
I’ve definitely seen better
by Kanata Shihara on 2018/05/26 00:41
This app is great even though it has a great amount of room for improvement it’s great. And I truly don’t mind the audio adds those are fine and this app is awesome especially with new songs every week. It’s deserving of its hype. My problem with this app is the simple fact that without premium you can’t select your own songs. and I’ve even adapted to this, after all if it’s in your playlist it should be a song you like right ? I’ve accepted that and moved on. My BIGGEST problem with this app is once you’re done with the playlist you’ve made it plays songs that are NOT on the playlist and it only lets you play 5 second samples of each song. PLEASE fix this At the very least let me listen to the songs that are actually ON the playlist. Also what’s even worse is that this app takes it upon itself to add songs by itself and once more, play songs NOT on a custom made playlist. And that’s only if you’re lucky like I was the first time. I couldn’t listen to my playlist anymore so I went to my next one. After the third song all I heard was random songs that I haven’t even heard of and were definitely not even related to any of the artists. Please fix
No thanks not worth it
by Loven dis app on 2019/02/09 04:06
I think the idea of the app was spot on. I think the execution was terrible. The app is up to date and on top of these songs but it is a pain to work with. An app should always be user friendly and easy to understand but this isn’t it. I don’t like too much music and don’t know that many singers so when it made me choose three that’s a big no, it messed up my recommendations and I’m stuck with sicko mode as a recommendation because I was joking around. The app doesn’t allow you to play just one song, you have to make a playlist and if it’s not big enough it plays “recommended” music which is extremely irritating. Skipping songs only 6 times per hour is ridiculous and only there to make you pay money. Also the fact that you can’t restart your playlist after you’re done and it starts playing other music is uncalled for. I tried everything from looking it up and restarting my phone. Nothing worked. Ik there are hard core fans who know all the ins and outs of this app but that’s not the point, anyone (within reason) should be able to use and app, if they can’t then there is no point to download this app. Lastly I forgot to mention but not being able to add whole albums is also irritating, adding song by song is meticulous.
Fine app, but mean to non-premium people.
by jedihobbit on 2018/08/29 21:56
I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
Why!?!?!?
by cDNAhsjs on 2018/12/24 16:24
I don’t understand why I can do unlimited skips on my Xbox for free on my playlist and I can also switch to whatever song I want but then I try to listen to some music on my phone I have to listen to the song it is playing the whole way through before I can listen to the next one. And then you try to make me pay ten dollars a month for it when I can just go on my school chrome book and I can change the songs. And I’m not going to bring that thing up every night to listen to music. Anyways, an add came up while I was switching to the next song and it says that if you watch this add, which it was around thirty-five seconds, you get the next half hour free of adds. So I watch it and when that was done another add came up just to tell me that there was thirty minutes of no adds, it was about fifteen seconds long, it talked for literally four seconds and then the add just sat there for another eleven seconds showing me a picture of a product that I don’t even have enough money for. Alright, if you listened this far, I just want to be able to Change and skip the songs on my playlist without having to pay ten dollars a month for premium, But this is just another comment from an upset user so I will probably just get completely ignored.
Just fix it already!!!!!
by jamiejam118 on 2018/07/26 20:22
Too many adds, and why are the skips limited? Seriously? Why do I have to pay extra to not play something? Also, why can’t i skip back? Sometimes people make mistakes and accidentally press forward instead of pause or whatever and I actually do like that song. Also, why can’t I play songs that aren’t on my playlist or just pick one song to play, I just want to listen to toxic by Britney Spears, and I don’t want to have to wait through an hour of my chemical romance! Shuffle doesn’t really shuffle that well either, i was listening to my playlist and it played like, an entire musical in order! I pressed shuffle for a reason! I used to use the kindle version and even that was better, and do you guys know how terrible the kindle version was? Saying that was better than throw new iPhone updated version is saying a lot! JUST CHANGE IT BACK! Geez! I’ve read other reviews dating back to April saying about the same thing as I have, and you still haven’t changed anything! Just listen to the people already! As Dan and Phil said “ were here to give the people what they want” so why don’t you guys actually pay attention and actually do something to better our experience!
Amazing App!
by Raveiin (SM) on 2018/09/26 02:03
All I can say is this app is positively amazing. It is made very nicely, and although it does have an occasional advertisement, that does not possibly amount to the overall amazing quality. Definitely worth getting the premium membership feature (I don’t own it, but have used it before with a close friend of mine.) This app is a must-have if you have a busy lifestyle and love listening to music! One of my favorite features is the playlist option. You can make customized playlists to your music preference. It’s positively amazing! You can also add certain artists you like, and it customizes your daily mixes. Another great feature is the daily mixes! The app gives you daily playlists based on your favorite songs and artists, and makes a personal playlist based on the aforementioned favorite songs and artists. Altogether, it is a spectacular app that has MANY amazing features, and I’m not surprised it is so popular and successful. I hope everyone can notice the amazing quality and effort that was put into the making of this AMAZING app!

I used to love it so much before the update. When you close out the app and come back later, the playlist you were on, you aren't on it anymore, it takes you to your recently played. And that new 30 minutes of ad free music ad is really annoying. I dislike how it says- "Yes really..yadayadayada" that's bugging me. And that ad plays right after the very first song I listen to is over. EDIT: There are WAY too many ads dude. Like seriously. Even when you click on that "No, I want to keep the ads" ITS STILL PLAYS A HECKIN AD. And I feel like you've been deleting A LOT of songs that I enjoy. I'm starting to go to SoundCloud and Musi because you've been deleting my songs. EDIT 2: PLEASE turn down the volume on your ‘get 30 mins ad free’ ads. Like, I have my volume all the way up sometimes and the ad is louder than any of my songs and it hurts my ears. EDIT 3: The only time I can get 30 mins ad free is when I first open the app. I know it used to pop up with that dude saying get your 30 minutes ad free by watching a short ad. And it waits for about 10 seconds for you to click ‘watch video’ but now the woman says it, doesn’t wait, plays 3-4 ads in a row and doesn’t give 30mins. Fix this please!
I liked the older version
by Dansam44 on 2018/07/31 14:21
I used to love this app but now it’s gotten so frustrating to use. The new update took away a lot of features that made this app nice to use. I almost never listened to playlists or albums, I always shuffle played all the songs I had. Without the “My Songs” section, I feel like I’m listening to the same stuff all the time and it’s annoying to have to constantly go on my phone and switch between albums and playlists. I liked when every song I saved was in one place. And it’s even more frustrating that you can’t albums to playlists anymore. I have to wait until the song actually plays to add it to an already existing playlist. If I want to add an entire album to a playlist I can’t anymore. And now I can’t even play albums because whenever I click on them none of the songs or a play button appears. Idk what’s going on with this app but you guys need to change it back. The new update is terrible and many people are complaining about it so you should listen to your users. I loved this app cause with the amount of music I like, I’d be broke using Apple Music. Please make the app better like it was before cause I do love using it.
shuffle doesn’t really shuffle????
by Jbae820 on 2018/05/27 21:55
literally your description of your app updates is “were always making changes to better your experience” or whatever (i know it’s something akin those lines) and let me just start out by saying you need to fix your whole app and change it back to the way it was. there was absolutely nothing wrong with it before so why you felt the need to change everything and make it trash i’m not sure. every time i try to play a playlist or whatever on SHUFFLE it’s not shuffled. it’s like you have no idea what the hell shuffle means because it’s the same order of songs songs as the last time i listened to it and it’s so annoying especially when i only have six skips and you make my favorite songs so overplayed that it makes me sick to listen to them anymore. and it’s so hard to navigate like i have no idea what i’m doing or where i’m going in the app. and you even made a folder just so you can tell the people who haven’t bought premium to go buy it. like way, we get it, you want money, but you don’t have to be so unnecessarily extra and go that far. i’m sick of your app. don’t be the music app version of snapchat. change it back to where it was and i wont leave another nasty bad review.
Timing out?
by Fallenzero1 on 2018/05/03 23:02
This app was great up until a few updates ago. I’ve held off on posting because I was hoping that te next update or the next would fix the problem I’m having. Almost every time I pause my music for more than a couple minutes, it’s like the app refreshes itself. I can hit the play/pause button all day and it won’t do anything. I have to physically go into the app and restart the music. It’s becoming very frustrating to have to go into the app almost every time I pause my music. Update: the timing out problem has been worse and worse!!! More often than not, when I pause, I have to go back into the app to let it reload. Something else it’s started doing within the last few updates, is sometimes, after it times out a couple times, it will show the time on a song counting up, but the song will not be playing. When I pause it, it jumps back to 0:03, and jumps forward to wherever it was when I hit play again, still with no sound. The only way to fix that is by completely closing out of the app and reopening it. At this point, the only reason I’m still paying $9.99 a month for this is because I don’t have reliable WiFi when I’m not home, and I like to listen while I’m out and about.
ideas
by Ynattirb rekceb on 2018/04/22 15:40
I love this app so much. i use it everyday almost constantly. it always works for me and has all the music i want. when i’m using it though i always think of two things i wish it had. 1) be able to combine playlists together so i don’t have to switch over to a different one while i’m driving. there’s the “add to” option for songs but if you could hold down the playlist and it said “add to” and then you could select playlist you want to add the other to that would actually be the best feature ever. 2) i wish you could change the order of songs singularly in a playlist. with premium i know you can choose whichever song you want to hear next but when i’m sleeping or driving i don’t want to have to manually change it or have it in shuffle. there’s been times i wish i could drag the songs around because i want songs to be heard in a certain order so being able to drag it around while editing the playlist would be awesome!
Great App!
by Penguindayday on 2018/04/03 21:15
I immediately feel in love into this app when I got it! The pros of this app are that the large variety of songs and artist, which is spectacular! I also enjoy listening the fact that you can save as many songs as you'd like. The fact that you are allowed to have the free trial for premium is magnificent, but I have not tried it yet. I also like the fact that you can watch an ad to get rid of advertisements for a half an hour, so I can listen to music without interruptions. However, there are quite a few cons. First, you can't listen to a thirty second preview of new songs, which saved lots of time. Then, there's also the fact that unsaved songs of yours can randomly start playing, which is great for discovering some new songs and artist, but gets irritating when I want to listen to my songs. Other than that, this app is great for playing any song while out of the app, and I'm sure I will still be a user in the future! Keep improving the app to make it better and better!
I love it but...
by andygirl82 on 2018/12/14 03:00
I love the app!! It’s so amazing! It lets me choose songs and shuffle them. It’s got some amazing song options, and I love the idea of having folders of music. I also love how every song is FREE!! I also love the amount of skips I get for the not premium version. I do have two problems though. I swear every two songs there are like 8 ads. Maybe bring it down. I can’t afford premium, and many others can’t, so this is a problem for them too. Maybe play 3 songs then 1 ad. That would be better. The only reason I use Pandora is because they have barely any ads. Another thing, after I’ve finished listening to every song on the playlist, you just play songs that have nothing to do with what I was listening to. Say I have a playlist with a whole bunch Latino songs. Maybe 150. I’ve listened to all of them in shuffle, and then you start playing like, Linken Park or Fall Out Boy. It literally has NOTHING to do with what I was listening to. Maybe fix that. Everything else is fine. Thanks! -Alexa Anderson
One more suggestion...
by Phillip Colligan on 2018/11/26 04:35
I am really loving the new updates… It would be nice to be able to click on the three dots on a song that's playing from your playlist and have the option to delete directly while playing that song from the playlist instead of having to go edit the playlist, find the song and then delete it. The app crashes and also makes me restart my playlist. I wish the playlist would always hold its play point (songs already played during playlist session vs songs left to play) and resume from the streaming service. I wish I could save me play point across each session. Let’s say playlist 1 has 10 songs and playlist 2 has 20 songs. If in pause playlist 1, I want to resume playlist 2 from whatever song it was playing before instead of starting allllll over. When I leave from playing playlist 1 on my Bose at my house, I want to resume in my truck from that same play point or have the option to have playlist 2 play instead.
Library Interface changed, can't find things
by Nostronimo on 2018/05/27 20:00
As a free user I loved it before the recent (may 17th) update and would have given it 5 stars because everything was readily organized where I could easily find albums or music I liked and was similar to the computer app or how the iTunes library looked. more specifically I liked I could somewhat choose what I wanted to listen to at just that current moment with what I've placed in those playlists, with the shuffle and limited skips of course with the occasional random addition of music. Now however I can't find any of that and just have a favorites section that plays everything, or I have to find the artist stuff itself on the mobile app and be forced to listen to all of that, even things I don't like which I can't thumbs down (as far as I can tell) and never have to listen to it again. I can't find anything now, and if I wanted things like this I'd just use the pandora interface where I have some control with the free features on pick choosing what I want and don't want in the list.
Good, free version still disappointing
by taylorlandry0 on 2019/02/02 05:33
The free version of this used to be perfect, but a while ago they decided to remove most of the features for non-premium users. They’ve recently re-implemented some of them (mainly the ability to view your own profile and other people’s profiles & playlists), but it’s still missing a lot of features that used to be available, which is really frustrating. To name a few: you can’t search songs in playlists that you’ve made, can’t make playlists secret, can’t rearrange songs on playlists, can’t play songs in the search menu, can’t read playlist descriptions, and others. You used to be able to do ALL of these things on the free version, and it’s beyond frustrating that they decided to remove all of them. It’s definitely better than it was right after the update with the ability to view profiles reinstated and the overall aesthetic of the app improved slightly, but the rest of these features really should be brought back to free users since they all used to be available.
Would give 5 stars but..
by Monochromedolphin on 2018/10/18 19:33
Something I’ve noticed recently is the constant freezing of the app, seemingly for no reason. I thought it was just a problem my last phone had, clearly not if I have the same issue on my new one. The only way to correct this is to reboot the phone rather than just close and reopen the app to get it to. Another problem is that sometimes the app refuses to play the songs I’ve synced offline even though I have premium. Thereby forcing me to reboot my entire phone just to get the app to work properly again, because just closing the reopening the app does not change anything. This is something I have noticed with the recent updates, because before it had not been an issue or at least not one that was so severe I had to reboot my phone to correct. Also, this is not relevant to what I previously stated, but I find it rather annoying how when you go to a recently played albums it only shows songs in your playlists. It should show all songs on that album not just the ones saved on playlists.
It used to be great
by Daffin Chuck on 2017/11/01 23:37
I've used this app for years and up until a few weeks ago, I loved it, but now it's just frustrating. Whenever I go to listen to one of my playlists, I hear a couple of my songs that I actually put on the playlist and then all that plays are a bunch of random suggested tracks that are often not even related to the kind of music that was originally on the playlist. I can see how (because I don't have premium) playing a few suggested tracks every once in a while might be acceptable but I rarely hear the songs that I have saved or that I even want to listen to anymore. Another thing is that the app now often glitches out. Sometimes it won't load any of the music even when I know that the connection is good. No matter how many times I hit the shuffle button, nothing will play. It will also randomly skip songs without me hitting the skip button or even touching my phone. This used to be such a good music app but now there are so many glitches that it's just not very enjoyable to use anymore.
Sweet and not so cool
by Three_tree88 on 2018/01/17 03:11
Great for iPad and computer but horrible for iPhone. Are you kidding me?? So I can't play whatever I want on an app on my phone without paying premium?? It'd be tight if I can play whatever I want on my phone. Least let me play my playlists without discovering "new" songs that I don't give a crap about. If you force me to shuffle my music and play songs I don't want at least don't make the app free. It's a huge turn off to get a free app only to not really enjoy the app unless you pay premium which is a lot for a mobile app when I can with the same app play whatever I like on my iPad and computer so why can't it be the same for mobile. I recommend it for computer and iPad but for mobile I'd pass unless there is a way for me to play my music even if it's just shuffling without playing music I don't want. Why do this to us who don't want to pay for premium for mobile. I don't really care for music that's "discovering". I just want the music in my library. I don't even mind the ads. I'll stick to pandora for discovering new music.
Changes
by Love156 on 2019/01/21 23:27
When the app was updated they got rid of some the best thing. I would love to see them come back. How many songs are in the playlist, how many followers they have and the search system. I would love to see new changes like putting your playlist in a certain order. With ocd this is very bothersome. I want to put playlist in an order that I use them and move them all around To an order I like not of how they were made. I can’t keep organized. I would also like to see ways to access the radios. When I get tired of my songs and want to find new ones I want to listen to the playlist radio. I have no idea how to get to them. I also think for organizational purposes I would love to see a select button where you can select multiple songs to add them, take away or move to a different playlist. The old features I would love to see come back. I love the app and I’m on it all the time but I would love to see changes to make the experience over all more appealing.
iPad app is better
by DatBoi4423 on 2019/01/07 01:15
When I switched from my iPad to my phone for this app(cuz it’s more portable and has data) there were a lot of things that just weren’t there. I couldn’t skip back and I had a limited amount of skips. I couldn’t choose where/what song on my playlist to start on, and couldn’t turn off shuffle. Also, I’ve realized that I’m getting an add or 2 after each song after listening to this playlist for a few days.(a few hrs a day) Its just annoying to have that many adds cuz it really messes up the flow. Plz make it like how it was a few years back with the adds, like 2 adds for every 5 songs, but otherwise the app is pretty good. But the only other thing is that song a that I’ve never added to my playlist are popping up out of nowhere, and it’s kinda annoying cuz when you run out of skips, it’s almost guaranteed that if you don’t select the do not play button, that it W I L L play when you run out of skips. But otherwise, great app but 5* for iPad and more like 3* for iPhone cuz the adds and skips, but ya great app.
Good but
by galaga champion on 2019/01/21 00:06
Its a great app that I use all the time! I do wish that I could see how many songs are on a playlist and be able to search songs on a playlist. I don't mind the adds much but the inability to change from shuffle to playing in order unlike the computer version is annoying. There are also some songs I like that aren’t on there but I suppose that might not be your fault. I have also been having a problem where it would show the next song playing but then it was just silence and if I paused it then the amount of time passed would go back down to zero and it would play more silence, I usually have to skip the song or keep messing with it until it works. Also a cool feature you should add is being able to change the main background color from black to different colors its not important I just think it would be nice. Edit: it stopped doing the glitch so yay
All songs?
by SpicyPeaches on 2018/12/27 21:23
It’s an awesome app to listen to music, but you can’t see all the songs by an artist. Only the most popular and latest release. That makes it almost impossible to find some songs. You should be able to search songs from an artist. Also, it reset my entire app! I went on to play some music and then it made me log in. Apparently, it didn’t save my account. Now I have none of my saved songs or any playlists. I also wish there was diversity all the recommended songs are immediately rap and pop music. I myself am NOT a fan of rap or pop. I know there a lot of other types of music and people who feel how I feel about those genres, there should be a mix. Like instead of always making it Ariana Grande, XXX, Drake, e.t.c (I swear I learned pop and rap music from your recommendations.)there could be some Vance Joy, Alt-J (Δ), The Lumineers. That would be nice. Also having a page to access queue easier would be great. Lastly, there should be a page where lesser known artists could get known.
Could use some work, otherwise good
by anon1946372 on 2018/03/11 04:50
As a music streaming app, it works great. I can deal with ads and limited skips, or pay for premium. It isn't perfect and it has its issues but I want to specifically address this one. The way the playlist radio functions is absolute garbage unless you pay for premium. If you like a song, you can never undo that action and liked songs will repeatedly show up when you use the radio, thus forcing you to listen to it or waste one of your already limited skips. I have songs I liked months ago still showing up, regardless of whether they're in my playlist or not. Songs that I don't want to hear constantly. This makes it difficult to discover new music without wasting my time. I understand that as a free user I shouldn't be able to skip everything, but making me deal with this is insult to injury. The least you could do is take these songs out of the queue, or allow us to "unlike" them.
Please help
by Uni_love11505 on 2018/06/28 09:44
Please help me. I downloaded the app but for some reason I can’t make an account. I got the button to do so and nothing happened. I tried to hit the button to log in to see if that one worked but it didn’t. If someone can help me, please do. Thank-you! Edit: I finally got it to work ( lol ) and I love it!! I can listen to my music without needing a subscription like some other music apps I have downloaded. The ads are a little annoying but at least you CAN get rid of them :). The fact you can download any song you want is great! I can listen to my k-pop and then a 2018 hit right after and that’s amazing! The other folder things ( I don’t know what to call them ( sorry ) ) are good because you can listen to new music you haven’t heard before. Sure you listen to a lot of music you don’t like but you find songs you do like quite a bit :). All in all, I love the app even with its few cons. 🙃
Going to lose a loyal customer
by Ladybug483 on 2018/05/27 18:43
So when I first found this app (when it first came out) I thought it was the best in the world 😍. It had features that no other music app did, primarily the ability to listen to your music while offline. I have given rave reviews to numerous friends over the years. I have 2 accounts, 1 free and 1 premium. I hadn’t used my free one in a while and needed to change some settings on a couple playlists. When I signed into my other account, the layout was completely different!! I cannot see the songs in my playlist (as I could previously), I can’t make any changes to my playlists. IT MAKES NO SENSE TO HAVE A PLAYLIST THAT YOU CANNOT EDIT. Please fix this, the layout is not user friendly, it’s cheesy looking and critical settings I was previously able to change are no longer available. I will be in the process of cancelling my premium account as well as telling my other friends with premium accounts about a better app. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I can still actually stream music (as do many other FREE music services).
Followed Artists & Lagging
by Mayaily123 on 2019/01/28 03:33
All the artists that I am following immediately disappear, as soon as I go on one of their profiles it says that I’m not following them and I’m not sure if that’s a glitch or if I’ve reached the maximum amount… But it needs to change. This has been going on for over a year. I’ve been a premium member for five years and have never had this problem. Also with the newest update, I’ve noticed when I play songs it lags when I try to shuffle to another song or go to another artists profile. Or when I’m adding a song to a playlist, there will be a long pause instead of adding it right away. But when I first start the app after I’ve had it closed out, it’s fast. Then as I do more things on it or add to playlists, it gets slower. If I press to add a song to a playlist, it’ll have a long pause before it loads my playlists. If I slide the time of the song and fast forward a bit, it pauses in between. It’s just annoying. I have an iPhone XS Max so... I’d assume it would be faster but.
Nice App
by Notorious M.I.T. on 2018/10/09 02:37
Just some things I kinda want, instead of lyrics and tidbits on the song can there just be lyrics so I can sing along without wondering what the exact lyrics are 😅 if possible jump into a song a friend is currently listening to at the same spot and time they are listing to 😅 live group/couple listening 😆 probably too much to ask. Just want more social/intimate. Over all great clean app, no problems like running into covers you don’t want to listen to or misleading titles of tracks, you get the exact song you want every time, harder to find certain underground tracks but there’s a good amount that you’d be surprised is on this app, the app is super organized and clean you never feel lost, I love this app, for the longest time I wasn’t sure about premium but once I was in it’s so nice hard to turn back, bit of a luxury but I don’t mind it, I’ll stay here till I get pointed to something better 😜
Love the app but hate the new update
by Goldless1 on 2018/08/03 10:43
I was listening to music on my PS4 when I realized that you guys deleted like 200+ of my music. Like why would you do that or have an update that does that. An its only for the phone. All my music is on the PS4 but when I go past or try to past the 800 song I can’t get to it ( on the phone I mean) . Plus, I have the app on automatic updates so I couldn’t choose weather I wanted to update it or not. I would love if you just put it back like the way it was. I use this app a lot between my Iphone and my PS4. I feel like it was much more convenient the way it was before. I have to admit the fact that I couldn’t see the rest of my song kinda forced me into writing this review I literally never do these but I felt like I had to in this case since I use this app sooo much. And the whole app this way is something I feel like I won’t be able to get used to with the way that it is set up now . Thank You for Coming to my TED TALK
Change this please
by Hoi m8 on 2019/01/28 05:24
Holy heck, this new update is annoying as heck, the like/save button is where the button to push the song info up used to be, and I have a device that doesn’t have cellular service/data, and I was in the car, and I was so annoyed, because I was not used to the new save button position, and then every 10-12 minutes I would accidentally unsave a song, and considering the car we have doesn’t have a personal WiFi (I don’t think any cars have a personal WiFi hotspot,), so I couldn’t listen to that song until we got back, and the songs that were unsaved were literally my favorite songs out of the whole saved songs list. The same thing happened on the airplane and I couldn’t listen to that song for the next 5 hours... Please remove this, a lot of people have, will and are complaining about this along with me, so please remove it or move it somewhere else. -Angry person with name not stated
Great App but Preview Feature Is Gone!
by Ebr2002 on 2017/11/16 23:25
I love this app. It’s my primary music platform and has been for years now. I’m a premium subscriber and think it’s a great value for what you get, at least if you listen to even half as much music as I do (which is a lot, admittedly, but still...$10 a month of unlimited access to all songs, all playlists I or any other user has ever created, etc, all for the price of a single iTunes album? I used to buy at least one and sometimes tons more each month on iTunes. Now I pay $10 and that’s it. Nice. So why only 4 stars? They took my beloved Preview feature away. I loved being able to tap and hold on a particular song and hear a good 30 seconds of it without actually having to add it to the queue or play it all the way through. Or tap an album and preview most or all of the songs on it before committing to actually playing everything in full. It was great. And I want it back. Please?
Mmm
by AlphfaWulf on 2018/11/15 23:41
So, one it won’t even let me install the app on my iPad, it keeps saying an unknown error has occurred please try again. So I do, and it still doesn’t work. Two, the actual app has way too many ads, for example there is one that says “Tap now to get 30 minutes with no ads” so obviously I click it while thing ends, I listen to my song, and boom. Ad. Right there in the middle of my listening. Three, I feel like you don’t have enough skips or that there is something in the algorithm that makes it so you have all of the songs you don’t want to listen to and then you land on a song you hate (if that makes any sense at all) I believe it’s only 5 skips but even still. Four, I don’t like how it just takes a short playlist of your, say 5 songs, and when you play it, it plays ‘suggested songs’. I have a playlist so that I can listen to all the songs I want one right after the other, not so that you can just be like oH hEy, LeTs PlAy ThIs SoNg nOw. Anyway, I probably have more to complain about,I just can’t think of it off the top of my head.
ZERO STARS until further NOTICE!.!.!
by ANGfilmz on 2018/09/28 07:00
The last couple of updates are nothing more than a nuisance! I used to love this app, I didn’t care if it was on a premium account or free but the last few updates made using the app a little unbearable in a few ways. There’s NO LONGER a ‘MY SONGS’ TAB which makes the app less pleasurable to use. I can no longer see SPECIFIC SOMGS under an artist WITHOUT HAVING to FOLLOW the artist and LIKE ALL of their songs. I literally go to my ‘ARTIST’ TAB and DON’T see ANY of the songs I like, and I’m FORCED to play ALL of the artist’s songs INSTEAD of the many that I only LIKE by the artist. I DON’t want to HAVE to make a PLAYLIST every time I want to hear only 23 of the 84 tracks from a single artist it’s RIDICULOUS. It also PLAYS the EXACT same SONGS over and over even when in shuffle. The updates took over half of my songs away and I’m LIVID. And it RANDOMLY plays songs and artists that have NOTHING to do with the playlist or genre I’m TRYING to listen to. This app needs to return back to it’s former glory I’ve been really fighting for this app. People try to sway me over to PANDORA but I DON’T want to resort to using that crud.
Amazing App just two issues
by Magzzsszzzzssss9726😒 on 2018/03/30 17:06
I love this app and as a premium subscriber it suns even better. However, there's been a really annoying glitch that doesn't allow me add more songs to a playlist I just created. The number of songs isn't even the issue because it will simply not register my tap and if it does it will freeze and not add the song to the newly created playlist. This has been going for a few weeks now. Apart from this there use to be an amazing preview feature that allowed you to press on a song without playing or queuing it and it'd give you a 30 second preview of it-please bring this back it saved a lot of time. Aside from these issues though I strongly recommend this app, especially if you decide on premium. You can listen to your favorite songs in any order while offline and while traveling (airplane or road trips).
Love app but just a few tweaks
by CES112 on 2018/09/13 14:50
I love the app! Last night I was listening to my songs on my library, I went to the queue to remove some songs I didn’t want to play next. It worked for a few but then as I removed more, they wouldn’t be removed of the list. I had to exit the app move around within the app and then try it again. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Please fix! Suggestion as well, I have so many songs in my personal library and every month or so my “favorite songs” frequently change. I wish we could “favorite songs” (maybe add a star or a heart for selection) and they would automatically be placed into a playlist. I know we can create playlists, I tried but it’s a hassle adding songs to playlists, that way I can easily enjoy which songs I listen to non-stop by just easily heart-ing or star-ring a song.
I hate it!

What did you guys do? My iPad app was fine until you did your updated day ago. Now I have lost access to all 8000+ songs. First you had to go and change how the phone app works and now you change how the iPad app works. I have never been a premium user and don’t want to be one. I have been able to use this app with the free account for the past few years and have really enjoyed it. Now, I’m going to have to say goodbye because of your update. I don’t want to listen to individual songs nor do I want to listen to my music through a radio station or playlist. I want to be able to access all my songs and shuffle them like I used to. Just because you get money from your premium members doesn’t mean you need to make it miserable for your free members. This app used to be the number one place I went to for my music, but I can’t do that now. Here’s a tip, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it! Also, please tell people what they’re getting with each update. Had I known that you were going to completely change the iPad app, I wouldn’t have updated it in the first place.
Annoyed
by anonynousme on 2018/08/09 23:32
When I first had this app it’s was great I could look up what ever song and wanted and play it right then and there but the app changed and I can’t play the song I want when I want I have to shuffle through the playlist and if I don’t like a song in the playlist and try to hit shuffle again it won’t change the song so I have to listen to stuff I don’t want to. Also when you go to your personal playlist you have to shuffle instead of chose the song you want to listen to even though it’s your own playlist and it should let you click on a song and listen to it. The extra songs in your playlist are also annoying because I just want to listen to the songs I chose and not something so coming back to the shuffle issue when it shuffles to the extra songs area I can’t change to song even if I press shuffle again and end up listening to music I’ve never heard or like. Sorry for being so negative but this has been bothering me for a while and I considering getting rid of the app.
Annoying Bugs, So-so Navigation
by BereanTRB on 2018/01/13 17:31
Overall, this app is quite good. I like the flexibility and general ease-of-use. But there are some bugs that hamper the experience. The most annoying one is while using the search feature the back navigation buttons can disappear. It’s then impossible to go back and do another search. The app will eventually reset and make search available again but only if you force quit the app (which doesn’t always work) or wait a while until iOS restarts the app on its own. This is a major bug and I hope they fix soon. Another problem is that long titles get cut off in most screens and there’s really no way to see them. They definitely need to fix that. Also, I’m very glad they included an EQ. They didn’t have to do that; major props for doing so. But I do wish you could save custom settings and you didn’t have to dive so deep into the menus to get to it. Otherwise the app is OK but there is still much room for improvement.
Great App With Room for Improvement
by londynelise on 2017/09/30 21:49
So, I love this app. I’m a college student and I love how premium is only $4.99/month. However, there are some things I wish yall would improve about this app: 1. When we are listening to a playlist and do a search to add something to the queue, as soon as we add the song it closes the search. If I want to add multiple songs by one artist I have to do the search again and again. Just keep the search up until we are done adding to the queue and let us close it. I don’t think that would be hard to add. 2. After adding a song to the queue and the playlist moves on to the next song, if we go back to listen again it goes to the song that came on before the song added to the queue. Just keep it in the queue, sometimes I want to listen to a song multiple times. Overall this is a great app but those two things are just irritating in my opinion.
Great service, but new interface is garbage and search is worse
by an avid user on 2018/12/07 14:36
Another app that provides a fantastic service but thinks “innovation” is creating another echo chamber that feels like social media. I don’t need you to bastardize my browsing experience by reminding me of my personal playlists I just listened to. I know what playlists I have, because I made them and I listen to them. And, there’s already a tab for it in my library, right there! I go to “browse” for OTHER playlists and see what else is popular in the world, beyond my bubble. The “tailored” playlists aren’t “innovation”, it’s just another echo chamber. Also, y’all clearly take a ton of analytics on the music I listen to... but I can’t have a play count on my playlists, or see any of my usage like iTunes allows? I don’t need to be offered a “tailored” playlist that’s 95% songs I already have in a personal playlist, but it’d be nice for me to be able to actually reflect on what I listen to and how often - beyond the terrible “year in review” playlists that get pushed out every December.
Good but it needs some work
by L.I.L. on 2018/04/20 12:33
Now, I love this app. I can listen to my music in peace and I have countless songs to choose from. Except for the fact that I can't choose them. If I use my tablet or computer then I can pick what songs I want to listen to but if I'm using my iPhone then I'm stuck with whatever song they give me when I hit shuffle. That includes all the "discover new songs" that they play. I understand giving a few suggestions every now and then but it is ridiculous because if you have less than 10 songs in your playlist, odds are you won't even hear your songs, just music that doesn't relate to your playlist. I get how Premium would allow you to download and remove ads. I wouldn't even mind it if you had to get it to pick a specific track. But at least let me choose to go back a song or just let me play songs in my playlist. Also, they offer a 30 minute ad free thing every now and then but it doesn't work.
The app might as well be completely broken.
by everyworthwhilenicknameistaken on 2018/10/19 20:54
There are an overwhelming number of negatives to positives with this app, it feels completely broken at best. I can listen to the songs I have saved hardly a fraction of the time, because otherwise the app completely floods me with suggested songs, and most of which have absolutely nothing in common with my saved songs. If I’m really lucky, I get about ten suggested songs for every two songs I have saved that the app lets me listen to. Most of the time though, it won’t even play a single song I have saved to any playlist, or even if I’m trying to directly listen to an album, or from an artist. If I mark certain songs not to be played, the app still plays them anyway, making that feature absolutely worthless. The ads, for some reason, are at least twice as loud as the songs. The menus feel clunky and inconvenient at best. This app is barely functioning, and it keeps getting worse with each update. You’re way better off opting for Pandora or some other app that actually works and does what it’s meant to.
A disaster for slow connection and airplane mode users.
by Nuka Kola on 2018/02/02 11:00
I live in a poor cell signal area and therefore use this app a bit differently. When starting the app up with cellular on, it takes 30-60 sec for it to bring up my music (i.e an age and a half). If I forget to engage airplane mode before starting, I have to quit the app, engage it, and restart, which also takes a bit of time but is much faster than waiting. If the app loads all my music data from local storage in airplane mode anyway, I don’t understand why it cannot just do the same when on cellular and THEN wait for network updates, instead of keeping me waiting for the network updates while forcing me to stare at an empty screen. That’s just bad design. Now, because I pretty much have to use it with airplane mode (AM) due to silliness described above, I’ve run into a few things that just don’t work with AM engaged. Sometimes it simply refuses to play music (of course I’m talking about pre-downloaded tracks) and hangs there. This forces me to restart it, sometimes multiple times, until it decides to play again. Then the lock screen mini player will not show track progress, and the little dot stays at 0:00 throughout playback. At times when the progress is shown, it is nigh impossible to grab the little scrubber and drag it to the desired track time. Do you guys not use your own products?! Lastly, there is never any update notes. Sorry, but no notes, no star; it is as simple as that.
I love this app but...
by BM022020 on 2018/12/15 19:18
This app is amazing, I can listen to all my favorite songs when I want and it’s great for taking long trips that I have to drive which I do very often. I also love using it while doing homework. There are only two downsides to this app. Lately when it offers the 30mins of unlimited listening without adds and I click to watch the add it just goes right back to my music and doesn’t let me listen without adds. The other thing is that I don’t have the money to pay for the monthly Prime. I’m only 16 I don’t have a job or a bank account that I can pay for the unlimited music. Yes, I understand that they have to have some way to pay for the app to still be up I just wish there was another way for me to get the unlimited music without adds and be able to listen offline. But other than those two things I love this app and would recommend it to anyone.
Could have some improvements
by Kim.m.1868 on 2018/02/12 03:18
I’ve been using this app for a few years and I loved it until recently. I hate making a playlist and not even hearing any of the music on it. I, personally, love musicals and try to listen to my favorites but I can’t. I don’t want to hear music from rappers when I’m listening to the music I was hoping I could hear. Also, I don’t appreciate getting false advertisement. I can’t be told to listen to an ad and get 30 minutes of ad-free music but have to sit through 5 ads, listen to three songs and get another 4 ads. I would really love to see a listen history. I don’t have premium and I usually leave my music playing off my speaker and phone when I leave the room so if I come back at the end of the song, and I like it, I want to be able to come back and find the song.
Where’s the “Downloaded” Folder???!
by CuteFlower1224 on 2018/07/14 05:07
I’ve been waiting for the feature to come back update after update but the “Downloaded” folder still hasn’t come back yet. I like to download new full albums and playlists before a long trip so I can listen to them all during the ride but it’s tedious to have to scroll through the entire album and playlist lists just to find the ones that I downloaded. It would be a lot easier to just have the downloaded folder back so I can see all the ones I had downloaded in one place. Also, it would be nice to have that right swipe delete feature when it comes to editing playlists. It think it would be a lot easier to do that to delete songs from a playlist instead of having to click the edit button then click on those red circles and then press delete every time I wanted to edit a playlist.
Sure
by Mempybot on 2018/05/31 11:04
I don’t think the user interface is the most intuitive. (Since when does “liking” or “hearting” something grant you access to it?) The “shuffle” ain’t random, either. (Listen to a 150+ song playlist on two different days and the first five songs play in the exact same order each time?) Their algorithm could use some work. Like radio stations, I assume they only have rights to play content in accordance with the specific buyer-distributor agreement for the content, but Jaysus. The ads are disorienting, too, but that’s not something I can really fault them for. They gotta make money somehow, or they can’t pay artists. (I just hope they’re not ripping artists off. I hope they pay what they genuinely think is fair for the content and not just the cheapest offer they can get away with.) It’s still the only service I know of that lets friends collaborate to build a playlist.
