    I believe it can downloaded songs online and save it to my phone directly though I haven't tried using it

    The problem with many free and legal download apps is the limited choice of songs and it’s easy to waste 6 hours looking for the music you want. There’s a monthly subscription, but you can download any music to your computer or phone and listen without a worry on your mind.

  • My go-to app for listening to my favs and for exploring new music Jun 14, 2021

    By Brad in NYC
    I love this app, it has become an important part of my music listening life. The selection is vast, of course, with easy searching – but the extra features in the app are especially valuable to my listening. For example; -create a road trip or workout list, -I often explore hours of music with suggested artists and popularity ranked songs, based on what I’m listening to, -good radio suggestions based on my listening to learn about new stuff, -My library is downloadable to my phone -the equalizer has a diagnostic tuner to customize my new headphones to my ears (I was very impressed with the difference) It’s a great app.

    The design and layout of the app is great, but the newest update has made it slow to respond on my S9. Often taking 20 seconds+ to scroll or switch screens.
  • Sad about update. Jun 17, 2022

    By Jake81499
    First off, I’ve never really had any troubles before this update. I’m using an iPhone X. I have a very large downloaded song list as well as a large playlist and favorites list. First problem, it takes two or three tries to get the app to boot up. 2nd problem, if the app is in offline mode it will take several minutes or several tries to boot up. 3rd problem, once it boots it takes 2 to three minutes to let you do anything. You cannot press any buttons or anything. 4th problem. The app will start out by playing a partial song that stops within the first half of the song. It will do this several times and you have to select a new song each time. 5th problem, the app will just quit playing whether the song is downloaded or not when in online mode and you run out of service. 6th problem, the app will just quit playing when you are in offline mode when you leave a service area whether the song is downloaded or not. At this point it might be VERY wise to just bring back the old app until this one is fixed. Moral of the story is, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The old app wasn't broke, this one is. And my girlfriend is having the exact same issues on a Galaxy phone.

    Update: Please fix the favorites section. It doesn’t refresh anymore in your downloads section but it does it in your library section which is really annoying. This app has had its bumps along the road but things have been running as smoothly as can be expected on this ever-changing iOS platform. I do like it and I like the layout of the downloaded tracks category with album covers beside songs. Unfortunately, the search function is still horrible. If you so much as miss a letter it won’t recognize what you’re looking for. Even then, it’s still hard to find certain songs even though they actually have the song in their catalog if you look hard enough. And I’ve noticed lately that they don’t have as much music as some other services. It’s usually not high profile music, just some random songs. For instance, I wanted this Psy song (not Gangdem Style, hate that song) and they didn’t have it though they have some of his other songs. Little things like that make me wanna switch sometimes but I’m gonna see how it goes for now. Hope things improve.

    Pretty good app. The mixes and radio stations are different than the other streaming apps which is sometimes great (new music!) and sometimes frustrating (why has my pop playlist turned into a techno rave?) I'm still getting used to the interface, but I find it less intuitive and more cluttered than the other platforms. I had to hunt to figure out how to save playlists and then to find where the heck I put them afterwards. I've also had volume and play glitches.

    I’ve had this app for 5+ years. I understand bugs and updates and platform changes come in with that, I used to love this app and had little to no problems, but not being able to find artists or songs in the search is def a problem, also my biggest problem is that when I put it on shuffle 70% of the time it will play 1 song then lock up I’ll have to close and refresh the app which is very frustrating when your trying to workout or work in a shop, the music quality has declined not sure for what reason and also when I go to download a playlist I made form my library it will only download maybe 50% of them even if I’m on WiFi. I’ve rocked with this app and have some dope playlists, but with other downloadable music apps out there and reviews that down have common problem’s such as these I’ve listed, I’ve been thinking of making a switch although it will be hard to do so, cause I feel like I’ve been with y’all for so long. I hope to see positive changes to these bugs soon. P.S. wouldn’t mind a tee shirt or something that be pretty cool, large plz 😀

    Its got all the tracks and artists you'd expect from a streaming service. Includes a fairly robust eq to tailor the sound to your exact preference. The main drawback I discovered was the playlist implementation. It does, in fact work quite well, but is extremely unintuitive to learn Once learned it's fine tho. Lastly, I've heard, but not verified for myself that Napster pays artists about 3 to 4x what spotify and other streaming services pay artists for their content. Its the main reason I'm using it now.
  • Mostly Great with some technical issues Nov 1, 2021

    By fireengineman99
    For the most part, this app works great with a great selection of music available. My only disappointment with the app is that I typically lose control of the album I am listening to. The album will play, but I can’t pause or stop playback without closing the app. Sometimes the album just stops after a track. I also get spontaneous shuffling or repeats. I also don’t care for the fact that after an album plays through, I get a random album starting, not from the same artist or anything from my library. It’s usually something way out there and unrelated, I have to pay attention when an album I choose is ending to stop the next random album from playing, especially when there is anyone else in hearing range like kids so I’m not suddenly surprised by a profane or screaming album. It’s embarassing because I don’t want anyone to think these random albums are something I chose. These faults are never predictable either, so I’m not sure whats happening.

    I have had this app for 2 years now, I think it is the best £10 a month I have ever spent - it downloads really quickly and easily and works anywhere! It also has auto mode which makes a simpler experience for when you are driving! Personally I think it is great! It also has kids mode so you can put what songs they can listen to on it. It has the option of going to offline mode even when on wi-fi to save battery! The even earprint feature makes it better to listen to as well! I love this app!!!!
  • It’s great but... Feb 6, 2019

    By TrendaLee
    It’s great for the pricing and for the amount of music you get. It’s great. The headphones settings are also fantastic. However, a few things I would like to be added/fixed. The main one is, could you guys like, stop changing my playlist cover photos? I mean seriously, don’t give us the option to pick our own cover if you’re just going to change it to a random photo every other day forcing us to change it again. That doesn’t mean take away our ability to customize our cover, cause that’s neat, I mean that by please fix that bug or setting you guys have so it will stay what we choose. It’s seriously starting to get VERY annoying. Second, more music from smaller artists/broadways would be great but I understand that purchasing rights is hard so that’s more a small no doubt frequent request you guys get. But it would be greatly appreciated to see more cover artists and creators on here. That’s it, otherwise, fantastic app!
  • Hot or miss. A crappy app that could be much better Jul 14, 2019

    By ilovelini
    Although I’ve subscribed to this app for years, there is much that drives my bonkers about this app. The search engine is completely useless. Sometimes it requires investigating just to find certain albums from certain artists. It can not be assumed that all albums are listed under the “all albums “ tab. Also many albums by some artists are not available. Example, even though all Beatles mono mixes are available on CD doesn’t mean you’ll find them here. The most annoying part is the time it takes to load a new track when one is finished playing. You’d think with the speed offered to these music services, they’d be able to allow tracks to flow uninterrupted as is the case with any CD. Removing songs from a playlist is difficult and cumbersome. If I decide I want to remove a song from a playlist there should be an option while the track is playing to make a two click system that will remove it. There are plenty of other options listed while listening to a track, it should include an option for removing a song from a playlist. Lastly, would it kill them to include a small biography about the artist and album you are listening too? All in all an ok app that could be made great by these upgrades.

    I've been a Napster user for over 10yrs, maybe 15....actually I originally used the 1990s version, but shhh. I've been moved to review due to recent changes that really annoy me: a) the option to view the queue you are listening to has disappeared....this is hugely frustrating and b) tracks very frequently do not play and the app skips to the next track, which sometimes plays sometimes doesn't. The only stability I see is from downloaded tracks

    When I first tried Napster, surely over a year ago now, I thought it was great, albeit rough around the edges. Since then though, there have been no meaningful updates, while other services like Spotify, TIDAL and Amazon Music have all meaningfully improved. It's at the point where the only thing I can say Napster have going for them is their library layout which allows you to listen to just all the songs from an artist you like, along with the best payouts to artists.

    This service used to be something great but now it is just a joke. Various (+400 at least) Albums and titles of my library keep vanishing and are unplayable because of "Licensing reasons" just to reappear after a certain time and then they vanish again which is weird for music hat has been released for over 20 years by now. This is a common bug and many other users experienced during the last years, yet Napster does not care to fix it. Plus the support has not answered FIVE of my E-Mails...
  • Beyond upset. Jul 28, 2018

    By Janyka Chevere
    I use to really like this app. A couple years ago I decided to cancel my subscription because I couldn’t afford it and they still charged me $99 for a years subscription! I called customer service they had no problem refunding me. Yesterday I decided to cancel my subscription once more and today they still charged me the $10. I called customer service and for starters the first guy I talked to cut me off while I was talking then put me on hold. When he got back on the phone he asked if I was still there and when I was answering him he hung up. I called again and the second guy I talked to was VERY rude. Very short rude answers and I was told I could not get a refund even though I canceled it the day before. I asked if there was someone higher I could speak with and he said no which I highly doubt. Very rude customer service. Very unfair! Do not download.

    It's a shame that the app's different between IOS & Android, I used to use it on iPhone it was very nice and then I switched... Now it disconnect sometimes 4 no reason, the music you download in your playlist doesn't go in "my downloaded tracks" you've to download them from an album whereas on iOS they did. And finally when you're in "my downloaded tracks and you search a specific song you've to scroll all the way down to the song (alphabetical order) there's not the letters on the side like iOS

    Allo! Napster, Your app is quite good . I have being using it for the past 2 years and it really hurts having to pull out ur phone from ur pocket to resume playing anytime u received calls. We wouldn't always pick up our phones when it rings and we wouldn't always use an earpiece to press a button to resume playing. I think it's great to resume playback after calls... Have u conceded building a client for Mac? Merci.
  • Earprint is revolutionary Feb 27, 2021

    By ms08795
    My ALLTIME favorite music app Earprint make this app stand out above the rest, in my opinion. It creates a response curve that is determined by YOUR ears and the headphones currently attached. When you start the process, it’s like a hearing test - push the button when you hear the sound - after it’s done the change will be noticeable. You can create an save Earprint curves unique to each set of headphones that you have. Once you’ve got your Earprint working, everything sounds better here than iTunes or any other place because the sound curve is matched to your headphones and your eats. The difference is truly noticeable.
  • Much appreciation Aug 15, 2021

    By nadii dutchess
    All the avenues it can connect you too. I enter one name or song. Then I’m checking out their most popular song. Their most recent album. Scroll down through albums and compilations in case there’s anything I missed. Then onto ‘similar artist’, to reacquaint yourself to forgotten favorites, or explore other artist that are new to you. To further your discovery, relative playlist will point you in new directions. If somehow you missed anything, you can fill in all other gaps on home page. Old, to new, to west coast to southern dirty. To 90’s, to soundtracks, to duets, or movements, comedy and children. It’s here!
  • Best listening post ever May 2, 2021

    By Rockytop54
    With an almost unlimited library at your fingertips, personal playlists created by you and playlists of public offering by other users your musical knowledge will be expanded beyond anything you might have imagined. Build and gather your favorite artists, genres, and songs and take them wherever you wander. Going somewhere there might not be internet, no problem. Download all you want, then before you step off the “map” go into offline mode and have days of music at your beck and call. And all at a very affordable price. So check in, tune in, and tune out.
  • This is hands down the best in class music app Sep 6, 2020

    By jwykoff454
    Been using over 10 years. It continually improves. It’s a music lover’s dream. Intuitive and flexible. Greatest variety I’ve found, and I’ve tried many other apps from time to time. The developers of this app are awesome. Here’s an idea for a new feature: build a digital signature (for example: # of beats per minute, tonal range, background orchestration, etc.) of the music from each song-then enable the user to search for and find other songs that are a close match it so the user can build a style based playlist.
  • Incredible app, incredible service Feb 6, 2021

    By Aerostar pilot
    This is a great product and the continuation into Apple technology of a great software product and service. I was given a copy of this program and a 2 month subscription with the purchase of a mpeg listening device a number of years ago. I remember thinking who would pay $15 a month for a service like this and planned to drop my subscription after the two month free trial. After having access to millions of songs and some obscure stuff for cello for my girlfriend, I've never left the service.

  • Gives me a unique soundtrack to my life everyday and everywhere Oct 5, 2021

    By Otto38dd
    I travel globally for work. I can download music before getting on planes or being in countries where the service isn’t offered. I can customize or randomize playlists and music based on where I am in the world. In Austria, Baroque Back Paul playlist of Beatles and Paul McCartney songs with Baroque style horns. Hong Kong? Random punk rock protest songs. Sitting in a random office working? 202 Motown Songs: The Complete #1’s to keep my mood up! My only issues are 1. the app logs itself out in countries without service so I cannot play downloads until I am able to log back in. 2. Downloading needs to be more transparent and flexible. Sometimes downloading stalls but I don’t know it happens or why. Need to be able to dynamically reorder or selectively delete download queue when connection speeds are slow.

    Need Ability to stream music on Alexa/Google Home/Integrated smart devices. If not for this, 5 stars. Integration with other devices is one thing Spotify beats Napster easily for. With Spotify, you could literally play music on any Alexa or Alexa enabled device such as a Ecobee Thermostat for example. Again, there's no Google Maps integration with Napster. On the positive side, the EarPrint feature in Napster is amazing.

    What happened? No more Find your Music Match to discover new music from people with same I'm missing a crossfade function! That would result in 5 stars. EQ is working perfectly(!) on the Cell Phones Headphones Output used for connecting to Aux-In@Amp. Pls do not touch at all to prevent from "improving for the worse". Sound Quality is great at 320Kbps, better than Spotify - esp. at the low end more detailed and more "dry" - possibly because of diffent encoding Napster/ACC vs. Spotify/Ogg Vorbis.

    I was having problems with the app: cuts and squeaks during reproduction, and after tried everything suggested by the customer service without permanent fix, I started to play with settings and turns out that was the Cache Recent Media option that was generating the squeaking sounds and interruptions on playback. Disabling that feature brought back my precious music.
  • Could be the best music app on the market Jun 16, 2020

    By Riverguide 101
    I only give this a four star because you are supposed to be able to use this with three devises. When we bought it I called them and told them it didn't work at the same time. They said go online and register your devises. I did this. Doesn't work. Eventually read deep in to their papers and found a line reading that if one devise starts the other decide stops. Why give me three if I can only use one. And I pay more. My wife and my son are all into music in a big way. That's why I bought this. If it wasn't for that one thing, then this would be THE best music app bar none Also. Please make the radio better. Your algorithm is off.

    I switched from Spotify due to content and artist compensation issues and am very satisfied with Napster's platform. I've found 95% of the music I've searched for and the playlist option is easy to work with. The only problem I've encountered is a buffering thing that happens very rarely.
  • Where did my music go? Jun 18, 2022

    By lynnie-lou02
    Opened the app today to find out it had been updated. Kind of difficult to navigate when I'm used to the old format. I went to go and download a recently released EP and it's not showing up in my downloaded albums. When I click on the tracks section, all of my music appears but I can't listen to a whole album or EP. Just one track at a time. Very irritating. Half of my downloaded albums won't appear in the album section of the app. I don't know what's wrong. If someone has any tips on how to fix this problem that would be great. Other than that the app has been pretty awesome.

    The design and layout of the app is great, but the newest update has made it slow to respond on my S9. Often taking 20 seconds+ to scroll or switch screens.
  • Sad about update. Jun 17, 2022

    By Jake81499
    First off, I’ve never really had any troubles before this update. I’m using an iPhone X. I have a very large downloaded song list as well as a large playlist and favorites list. First problem, it takes two or three tries to get the app to boot up. 2nd problem, if the app is in offline mode it will take several minutes or several tries to boot up. 3rd problem, once it boots it takes 2 to three minutes to let you do anything. You cannot press any buttons or anything. 4th problem. The app will start out by playing a partial song that stops within the first half of the song. It will do this several times and you have to select a new song each time. 5th problem, the app will just quit playing whether the song is downloaded or not when in online mode and you run out of service. 6th problem, the app will just quit playing when you are in offline mode when you leave a service area whether the song is downloaded or not. At this point it might be VERY wise to just bring back the old app until this one is fixed. Moral of the story is, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The old app wasn't broke, this one is. And my girlfriend is having the exact same issues on a Galaxy phone.

    I’ve had this app for 5+ years. I understand bugs and updates and platform changes come in with that, I used to love this app and had little to no problems, but not being able to find artists or songs in the search is def a problem, also my biggest problem is that when I put it on shuffle 70% of the time it will play 1 song then lock up I’ll have to close and refresh the app which is very frustrating when your trying to workout or work in a shop, the music quality has declined not sure for what reason and also when I go to download a playlist I made form my library it will only download maybe 50% of them even if I’m on WiFi. I’ve rocked with this app and have some dope playlists, but with other downloadable music apps out there and reviews that down have common problem’s such as these I’ve listed, I’ve been thinking of making a switch although it will be hard to do so, cause I feel like I’ve been with y’all for so long. I hope to see positive changes to these bugs soon. P.S. wouldn’t mind a tee shirt or something that be pretty cool, large plz 😀
  • Mostly Great with some technical issues Nov 1, 2021

    For the most part, this app works great with a great selection of music available. My only disappointment with the app is that I typically lose control of the album I am listening to. The album will play, but I can’t pause or stop playback without closing the app. Sometimes the album just stops after a track. I also get spontaneous shuffling or repeats. I also don’t care for the fact that after an album plays through, I get a random album starting, not from the same artist or anything from my library. It’s usually something way out there and unrelated, I have to pay attention when an album I choose is ending to stop the next random album from playing, especially when there is anyone else in hearing range like kids so I’m not suddenly surprised by a profane or screaming album. It’s embarassing because I don’t want anyone to think these random albums are something I chose. These faults are never predictable either, so I’m not sure whats happening.

    But the app is slightly broken, I cannot add albums or artists while connected to my Wi-Fi. Tried force quitting the app and opening again, artists and albums which I selected to be added to my library were not being added while on Wi-Fi. When connected to cellular data it works fine, but it was rather irritating to not be able to add the artists while connected to my own connection. The app design itself is nice, enjoy the music playback screen, and the organization is much better laid out than Apple Music. Last there is an Xbox One application? It will not even allow me to open the app without it force closing automatically. One thing I look for in a streaming service is being able to have background play while I’m playing video games. Fix the Xbox One app, and the function of the iOS app and I might think about switching to it.
  • Needs update for IPhone X Nov 27, 2017

    By awsnyde
    In general I like this app, and would probably otherwise rate it four or five stars. However, the interface apparently hasn’t been updated for iPhone X and is somewhat broken. The most obvious issue is that the menu bar at the top of many of the screen is almost 3/4ths covered by the rest of the interface. For example, the menu “hamburger,” the three bars that call up the menu: Only the top bar can (barely) be seen, and can be difficult to actuate. Without pictures, it’s a little hard to describe some of the issues. Some of the icons can be difficult to actuate. For example, while you’re on the song screen, there’s a down caret in the upper left to go back to the album screen, but it’s just barely outside the “forbidden” to area to the left of the iPhone X notch. It can be pressed, but it often takes a few tries.
  • New Update User Interface Jun 12, 2022

    By cgreaves49
    Overall, I like the new update and the ability to finally add tracks to a “play next” feature. However, I’m disappointed that there is no longer an alphabet associated with the scrolling bar on the right side of the screen when looking through my various artists, albums, or songs. This was very useful to quickly find a specific artist I was looking to play where now I have to scroll all the way down the hundreds of artists I have in my music just to find the one person I want to listen to. I’m not sure why this feature would simply be taken out or if I’m missing something yet. Just wanted to bring it to the developers attention. I can’t be the only one who noticed this, right?

    Pays the artists WAY more than Spotify and has pretty similar catalogue overall. Biggest bugbear atm is that adding albums to your library is more difficult than it need be. For one a 'select multiple' option would be useful, and for two there should be more info - like the release date - without opening each album and finding the album info. Especially when there's different versions of the same album with no (obvious) alternate naming.

    This app is harder to use than spotify, but that's okay, I can always learn new things. But the most disappointing thing for me is that it doesn't offer gapless playback between tracks. I won't be subscribing past my initial three month trial.
  • Hot or miss. A crappy app that could be much better Jul 14, 2019

    By ilovelini
    Although I’ve subscribed to this app for years, there is much that drives my bonkers about this app. The search engine is completely useless. Sometimes it requires investigating just to find certain albums from certain artists. It can not be assumed that all albums are listed under the “all albums “ tab. Also many albums by some artists are not available. Example, even though all Beatles mono mixes are available on CD doesn’t mean you’ll find them here. The most annoying part is the time it takes to load a new track when one is finished playing. You’d think with the speed offered to these music services, they’d be able to allow tracks to flow uninterrupted as is the case with any CD. Removing songs from a playlist is difficult and cumbersome. If I decide I want to remove a song from a playlist there should be an option while the track is playing to make a two click system that will remove it. There are plenty of other options listed while listening to a track, it should include an option for removing a song from a playlist. Lastly, would it kill them to include a small biography about the artist and album you are listening too? All in all an ok app that could be made great by these upgrades.

    When I first tried Napster, surely over a year ago now, I thought it was great, albeit rough around the edges. Since then though, there have been no meaningful updates, while other services like Spotify, TIDAL and Amazon Music have all meaningfully improved. It's at the point where the only thing I can say Napster have going for them is their library layout which allows you to listen to just all the songs from an artist you like, along with the best payouts to artists.

    It's a shame that the app's different between IOS & Android, I used to use it on iPhone it was very nice and then I switched... Now it disconnect sometimes 4 no reason, the music you download in your playlist doesn't go in "my downloaded tracks" you've to download them from an album whereas on iOS they did. And finally when you're in "my downloaded tracks and you search a specific song you've to scroll all the way down to the song (alphabetical order) there's not the letters on the side like iOS

    I've been a Napster user for over 10yrs, maybe 15....actually I originally used the 1990s version, but shhh. I've been moved to review due to recent changes that really annoy me: a) the option to view the queue you are listening to has disappeared....this is hugely frustrating and b) tracks very frequently do not play and the app skips to the next track, which sometimes plays sometimes doesn't. The only stability I see is from downloaded tracks

    This service used to be something great but now it is just a joke. Various (+400 at least) Albums and titles of my library keep vanishing and are unplayable because of "Licensing reasons" just to reappear after a certain time and then they vanish again which is weird for music hat has been released for over 20 years by now. This is a common bug and many other users experienced during the last years, yet Napster does not care to fix it. Plus the support has not answered FIVE of my E-Mails...

    I use to really like this app. A couple years ago I decided to cancel my subscription because I couldn’t afford it and they still charged me $99 for a years subscription! I called customer service they had no problem refunding me. Yesterday I decided to cancel my subscription once more and today they still charged me the $10. I called customer service and for starters the first guy I talked to cut me off while I was talking then put me on hold. When he got back on the phone he asked if I was still there and when I was answering him he hung up. I called again and the second guy I talked to was VERY rude. Very short rude answers and I was told I could not get a refund even though I canceled it the day before. I asked if there was someone higher I could speak with and he said no which I highly doubt. Very rude customer service. Very unfair! Do not download.
