  • Great app except one thing. May 1, 2019

    By HotWheels_Beast
    The app works great, in my opinion it’s the best music app ever. It’s free and can actually pick what song you want to listen to whenever you want to listen to it, all with very little ads. You can pay to have the app ad free but no need for that. Also when you pay you can download songs for offline listening but I’ve noticed that if you put a song on a playlist and listened to it before at least once that it doesn’t have to load the next time you listen to the song so there is no need for paying. The only bad thing is there is this one thing called SoundCloud weekly on the homepage and it recamends you songs... but all the songs are usually really old like 1-3 years old, so I would like if it would recommend songs that are newer. Other than that if you live in a family that has very little money and you love to listen to music like I do (bus ride to school, bus ride home, when I play basketball, when I wanna jam out) and stuff like that it’s perfect. So SoundCloud if you see this please keep the app the way you have it. But maybe different color ways. I like when music apps change their color ways!

    This newest update removed the highlighted quality of songs in Playlist. Now you have to go in the Playlist and check manually as opposed to just clicking "add to Playlist" and the song be shown as in a Playlist already by its highlighted number (number of songs in Playlist total). The new UI i don't mind but this particular change is a downgrade in convenience and functionality for sure.
  • SoundCloud Rocks! Feb 24, 2021

    By L. X. D. Auther
    SoundCloud is absolutely incredible! I love to post my tunes on SoundCloud for friends and fam to listen to, and to store them too! I love to find new songs or even remixes of songs I love! It’s great bc I can listen to my fave artists for free, and I don’t mind the adds even! I love the dark mode built into the app, it looks great! I would personally suggest using SoundCloud to my friends and fam and others for music streaming for free or with Go or Go+. I only would like to say, it is disappointing when I post a song and am sure it is mine only, but the system says I’m copyrighting another song. I can’t pay to copyright my music, let alone prove it’s mine, and even if I could, I wouldn’t pay to copyright my tunes bc I’m NOT POPULAR AT ALL! I only have 16 followers, most of which r prob scam bc they all look alike and say about the same thing, “get known now for free” or “share your music easily and quickly by tapping this link!” or something of the sort, which is lame bc they r FAULSE! Complete fakes! I also wanted to let you know, I can’t view my all played history anymore in the app! It’s sad, the button is visible, “See more listening history” but whenever I click it, it won’t let me view my history, but I want to see all my history! If u could fix this annoying glitch that would be awesome! I love looking through my history and miss it! Thank you for a wonderful service!

  • Playlist Organization Nov 27, 2019

    By _shannon
    SoundCloud is great but there are a lot of glitches with playlists that need to be fixed. Trying to rearrange your songs in your own playlists is a hassle, it takes multiple tries to get the song to permanently move because it often just reverts back to where it was right after you moved it. I always have to close then reopen the open to check and make sure my songs moved to where I wanted them to. Also the icons you can upload for your playlist cover never seem to update unless you actually open up and go into the playlist. This doesn’t seem to be much of an issue on the desktop but on mobile my set display cover is never what I picked, it’s usually automatically always the same picture as the first song in that playlist. This gets really irritating because if I want people to check out my playlists, the first thing they see is the display image and I would rather them see the one I chose than of the picture from someone’s track! Lastly, please incorporate the option to move around your playlists. I have playlists from months ago that are at the way end of my profile and would rather have some of those at the forefront of my profile when you visit it. Really hope you consider ideas to fix these problems. Otherwise great app and I’ll always be a user.

    I've been using SoundCloud for about a month now, it's great for songs that aren't on Spotify or when you don't have Spotify Premium and want to listen to a song on demand. It had ads which I don't really mind, and a lot of songs are behind a paywall. Which is generally ok because most of the times there's re-uploads, but it's frustrating when there aren't and I have to deal with the downsides of YT music. Overall I only use it to play certain songs once and a while.
  • Very good but some issues Feb 5, 2018

    By datboi667
    So I’ve been using this app for the past 3 years and it has been amazing, but somethings I would wish could change as well as some issues I’ve ran into. The first thing is the UI, if I type in a song and I spell it wrong I wish it could put up something close to that and not say “ No Results”. Second thing is that I wish when you went into your saved playlist that you would start at the bottom or the newest song and not the top, but those I can live with so I own an IPhone X, I’m not showing off or anything but this thing has amazing speakers and for some reason when I play a song it crackles and pops which is soooo annoying, I’m an audio geek and I can not listen to a song when it cracks and pops it’s just infuriating. And the last thing is something that I’ve wanted for so long is to be able to post songs from your phone because not all of us own computers, and or laptops but the option to be able to post songs from your phone would be awesome. I hope you bring these ideas in consideration and hopefully are able to fix that bug but anyways I love this app and this is the only way to listen to songs that are posted by non singers or artists.

  • App terrible interface but desktop great! Make them the same! Sep 17, 2018

    By Music computer guy works great
    The app is so terrible compared to the desktop version. The searches never come up the they do on desktop, I never see my page with my spotlight 5 tracks when I open it up, i have to scroll forever just to get to what is normally right there on my desktop.... the app gets ZERO. As an artist and some one and I are talking about music and who I like and what I sound like I’d like to be able to easily show them or find the name of the musician I was listening too earlier that day etc. I have more specific complaints but these are the ones that come to mind. The ‘usability’ and ease of interface is just terrible on the app version. I gave an 8 or something for the recommendation of SoundCloud to people but , it would have been a 10 if the stupid interface on the app wasn’t so clunky. The two interfaces (desk and app) should look and work essentially the same. A girl told me it was impossible for her to figure out how to repost my song on the app version. she gave up in frustration. In some way that reflects on me and I lost a precious repost. Also I’d like to be able to link my two accounts , even if it is just slightly more a month to have both on premium. That last note is not about the app obviously. Thanks for listening.
  • Ads!!!!!!!!! Dec 25, 2019

    By Merakkii
    I love the music I can find on the SoundCloud platform but I cannot STAND the way you have set up users to consume ads! Firstly, there used to be a way to skip most ads after 15 seconds but that feature seems to have been completely removed. Next, you guys place an ad after almost EVERYYYYY song and not to mention the fact that you also have put ads BEFORE a song plays when you manually change songs! The app is only good because of the ARTISTS music that we have access to, but this app/platform is losing me day-by-day and makes me want to download the music and get off the app altogether!!!!!!! Lastly, one of the most annoying parts of your ad setup is the fact that when you do click another song and an ad plays——— YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE *BLEEPING* APP!!!!! You HAVEEEE to let the 30 second ad play fully in its entirety with no ability to skip halfway through or to close the app to listen while continuing to do something else on another app like most do! I guess you can just do like me and close/relaunch the app a million times but it’s getting absolutely so ridiculous and frustrating that I had to let SOMEONE who might be involved in this terrible setup know it needs to be fixed or DRAMATICALLY reduced!!!!!!!
  • Lots of minor/medium problems May 19, 2020

    By RealDougtheDonkey
    SoundCloud is fine. I like that it’s free. There are some songs, like Elise by The Greeting Committee, that used to be free but now require a premium for you to listen to. I’d prefer if more were free, but beggars can’t be choosers. Anyways, I don’t even know if that decision is up to SoundCloud or the individual creators. There are some more glaring problems, though. For one, when I try to scroll down quickly, the app gets really laggy, shows me one frame a second, and scrolls down incredibly slow. It’s infuriating when I’m trying to go low down in my likes songs. Another issue is finding when a song was posted or looking at its description. Both of these are impossible on the SoundCloud app. It seems that the developers only care about the computer version of SoundCloud, when it is much, much better as a mobile app. I have no clue why you would focus on the computer more. It’s not like I can carry a computer in my pocket while it’s connected to headphones or anything. Also, when someone replies to one of my comments I’d like to be notified. This one is just a small suggestion. I usually like the app, but it needs major, major polishing. Please update it!
  • Sep 2, 2021

    By Matthew Swain
    1st, you can't download music for free to listen offline, you can only add it to a playlist. 2nd, If you're looking for a song, be prepared to most likely listen to a cover of it. You only get the full experience with a paid subscription. I'm deleting this app because it is very misleading. Very disappointing.
  • One Big Dislike May 27, 2018

    By Iden rahtsami
    SoundCloud I hope your reading this. The one thing that is keeping me from uploading more tracks and being able to see all the people who has liked or listened to my tracks like I used to is SoundCloud Go. I know you guys are probably losing money and your money thirsty but it doesn’t mean you have to have all these aspiring music producers pay monthly just to upload more tracks or view all the likes or listeners, just have people pay monthly to stream exclusive music and nothing else. I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with me on this but for a somewhat broke producer who’s paying monthly for other subscriptions, I just don’t have enough money to pay for SoundCloud Go, just to upload more tracks and other stuff I mentioned earlier. I hope you guys understand and wish to fix this problem that me and probably a few others are going through. Now, all you guys have done is rearrange some icons and make the app look somewhat cool, but you guys haven’t added anything new yet to the app which means I’m still very very disappointed. After every update this platform has made, it keeps getting worse.
  • Seriously? Aug 10, 2018

    By DeerSpotter
    I referred maybe 10 friends already to this app. This last version. I took a chance and still downloaded it, it’s broken. Crashes on each song I play. Maybe you should stop running all those ads? Every 2 songs there is a new ad “please upgrade to SoundCloud go” you have now convinced me why I shouldn’t update and wait for jailbreaks to block all those ads. You want to tarnish your name so bad that you put so many ads that it crashes your app. Good job! Driving back from a outing and sitting with a girl listening to ads, awesome. Why would I do that? I already pay for other things. We normal people can’t afford to buy so many useless subscriptions here and there. I can’t believe this. Also seriously, what happened to the easy way to get to playlists? They used to be big icons easy to click now as I am driving I can barely see my icons which discourages me from using this app, if I can’t see my playlists I won’t use the app. Period. I’m a veteran user from iPhone 5 (7.0.4) to iPhone X finally and each upgrade I get with my phones your app gets worse. How is that for useless programming?
  • TOO MANY ADS Feb 11, 2020

    By joseph A D !!!
    I don’t really write reviews for apps ever. I used to love this app and still use it occasionally but these ads are getting way too out of hand. I understand that the app has to make money but it seems like they are intentionally throwing ads almost every other song just to get you to buy SoundCloud plus or whatever the paid version is called. And it’s not like they are short ads either. It’s every other song a 30 second ad. I have started just closing the app out and reopening it and going back to the same song in half the time it would take for these repetitive ads to be done. I do not think that this deserves one star. I put it there in hopes that someone will see it and make a change. 2 years ago I would have given this app 5 stars but now with the amount of ads I would not truthfully give it more than 3 stars. Update: it’s getting worse. I am having ads stop music in the middle of 3 or 4 minute songs. This is not okay. Later Update: ¿ALL MY ADS ARE IN SPANISH?
  • Important issue with the app that needs fixing May 12, 2019

    By Manemjef
    I’ve been using Soundcloud for over a year now and one thing that has been happening on an off again is a bug that crashes the app when your phone is turned off and listening to music. This was patched a long time ago, but it’s back because of a recent update. Whenever you are listening to songs and the phone is turned off, around the 0:45 mark the app crashes. It’s really annoying when you’re in the shower and you can’t access your phone. And on top of that, an ad plays every 5 or so songs instead of 10 to 20 when I am looking through songs. And it’s one of those video ads that pauses when you go to the home menu or turn off your phone, making you watch 30 seconds of disturbing imagery about what happens when you vape. I’ve hung up with it before, but at this point, I just can’t. I really urge SoundCloud to fix this. The only reason I still use this app is because it hosts some of my favorite artists.
  • New update Nov 2, 2017

    By Doabarrelrollrightnow
    I don’t normally write reviews, in fact the App Store didn’t let me write this until I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it because of a glitch, but I have to emphasize the importance of this. In the patch notes, it details performance enhancements and bug fixes. However, this new version severely increases the startup time. I now have to wait a solid minute on a loading screen before I can do anything whereas before it took half a second. I don’t know what causes this, and the app still functions otherwise normally. However, this new loading screen before the app boots up takes an unacceptably long time compared to what the load times previously were, and is especially awful considering that barely anything was changed within the app, yet the load time is multiplied by probably more than 20 times what it took prior to this update. If you haven’t updated yet, PLEASE WAIT FOR THEM TO FIX THIS, because it is severely hurting the functionality of this app.
  • Dissatisfied (Highly!) Aug 17, 2020

    By Imhatingmortalkombatxrightnow
    My main issue with this app is how often it crashes, especially when I attempt to search through various artist’ tracks. Consistent crashes occur on this app (my phone is brand new so I know it’s not a phone issue) and there’s barely any support for creators on this app. Creators have to download Soundcloud Pulse which is also another app that’s behind it’s times (you still can’t even check PMs that are sent to you). I shouldn’t have to go through hell and back to listen to my music, but with the way this app is set up I can certainly say that it is highly dissatisfying on nearly all fronts. Only reason why it gets 2 stars is because of the fact that it’s somewhat useful, but get this app with the times developers!!! Update: The app is still crashing every time I open up someone’s “latest tracks” section which is pitiful. However we can finally see notifications from the parent app instead of having to go to Soundcloud Pulse which is nice.

The only bad thing is there is this one thing called SoundCloud weekly on the homepage and it recamends you songs... but all the songs are usually really old like 1-3 years old, so I would like if it would recommend songs that are newer. Other than that if you live in a family that has very little money and you love to listen to music like I do (bus ride to school, bus ride home, when I play basketball, when I wanna jam out) and stuff like that it’s perfect. So SoundCloud if you see this please keep the app the way you have it. But maybe different color ways. I like when music apps change their color ways!

    This app gives "at home" vibes for me with music, year's passed and still I'm happy to say that I found amazing music through bad ones ( my liking though ):D, at the same time, it's an adventure of finding your type of music and even a change of music which surprisingly you might like it, in the end giving a feeling of a rare discovery even from small artists.
  • Sep 8, 2021

    By Rachel Maddocks
    I love SoundCloud, always have - it lets me know when my fav artists have released new music that I then buy. I fundamentally hate streaming music as I know the artist gets barely no income from it, so I use SoundCloud to explore & listen to exclusive DJ sets you can't necessarily purchase. The only small issue I currently have is I just had an update to the app today & it's not continuously playing my liked tracks unless I have it on shuffle. Strange, but not the end of the world! Still 5*

    If you're not from a big country like USA, the UK, japan or something like that you basically don't get ads even though you don't pay for soundcloud go. I'm from Norway and 95% of the year I don't get ads, but very rarely I get one ad repeatingly for a week. If you're like me and don't listen to very popular songs (because some of them are barred off without soundcloud go), you basically have as good as an experience on this app as if you had paid for soundcloud go.

With ads, idk... ad amount seemed to vary based on what artists you were listening to, and less on pc than mobile. (as of mid 2020) Actually 4.5 star, ⭐ as the share links direct ppl to the app rather than the html address, which is really stupid.
  • You need SoundCloud Jun 26, 2020

    By hanshensbd
    It’s by far the best music and created platform out there yes there are flaws but not many every week you get a personal list of songs recommended for you from your listening history so you can discover more music and Artist you may like unlike other music platforms you can upload to and you can support small artists to help them grow it shows you the other side of music you have been missing out on my taste in music has changed so much for the better because of SoundCloud. You can find it or songs from popular artists today and see how they started you can’t get that anywhere else. It’s so easy to find the music you like and it will help you grown as a person to. I been using it for 1 and a half now and it gets better every day the best thing is it’s free and SoundCloud go is only 5 bucks it’s worth it. So all in all if you want to grown as a listener or start your career use SoundCloud.

    This newest update removed the highlighted quality of songs in Playlist. Now you have to go in the Playlist and check manually as opposed to just clicking "add to Playlist" and the song be shown as in a Playlist already by its highlighted number (number of songs in Playlist total). The new UI i don't mind but this particular change is a downgrade in convenience and functionality for sure.
  • SoundCloud Rocks! Feb 24, 2021

    By L. X. D. Auther
    SoundCloud is absolutely incredible! I love to post my tunes on SoundCloud for friends and fam to listen to, and to store them too! I love to find new songs or even remixes of songs I love! It’s great bc I can listen to my fave artists for free, and I don’t mind the adds even! I love the dark mode built into the app, it looks great! I would personally suggest using SoundCloud to my friends and fam and others for music streaming for free or with Go or Go+. I only would like to say, it is disappointing when I post a song and am sure it is mine only, but the system says I’m copyrighting another song. I can’t pay to copyright my music, let alone prove it’s mine, and even if I could, I wouldn’t pay to copyright my tunes bc I’m NOT POPULAR AT ALL! I only have 16 followers, most of which r prob scam bc they all look alike and say about the same thing, “get known now for free” or “share your music easily and quickly by tapping this link!” or something of the sort, which is lame bc they r FAULSE! Complete fakes! I also wanted to let you know, I can’t view my all played history anymore in the app! It’s sad, the button is visible, “See more listening history” but whenever I click it, it won’t let me view my history, but I want to see all my history! If u could fix this annoying glitch that would be awesome! I love looking through my history and miss it! Thank you for a wonderful service!

    I've been using SoundCloud for about a month now, it's great for songs that aren't on Spotify or when you don't have Spotify Premium and want to listen to a song on demand. It had ads which I don't really mind, and a lot of songs are behind a paywall. Which is generally ok because most of the times there's re-uploads, but it's frustrating when there aren't and I have to deal with the downsides of YT music. Overall I only use it to play certain songs once and a while.
  • Very good but some issues Feb 5, 2018

    By datboi667
    So I’ve been using this app for the past 3 years and it has been amazing, but somethings I would wish could change as well as some issues I’ve ran into. The first thing is the UI, if I type in a song and I spell it wrong I wish it could put up something close to that and not say “ No Results”. Second thing is that I wish when you went into your saved playlist that you would start at the bottom or the newest song and not the top, but those I can live with so I own an IPhone X, I’m not showing off or anything but this thing has amazing speakers and for some reason when I play a song it crackles and pops which is soooo annoying, I’m an audio geek and I can not listen to a song when it cracks and pops it’s just infuriating. And the last thing is something that I’ve wanted for so long is to be able to post songs from your phone because not all of us own computers, and or laptops but the option to be able to post songs from your phone would be awesome. I hope you bring these ideas in consideration and hopefully are able to fix that bug but anyways I love this app and this is the only way to listen to songs that are posted by non singers or artists.
  • Very great but some difficulties Aug 5, 2018

    By JayZuckerman
    Hello I’ve been a SoundCloud user since 2012 but didn’t really get into it until 2013. I would like to say SoundCloud is fantastic. However, I have problems listening to music without it cutting off every 30 seconds. Then once I press play, the same thing keeps happening. Also, as someone that makes music, I hate that there’s a pay wall behind me seeing simple things as who’s listening all over the world. Why should I by SoundCloud Go just to see things like that? The least I’m buying it for is playing music offline, that’s about it. Aside from that, I feel like SoundCloud Go is just not even worth it. I liked using SoundCloud until y’all introduced SoundCloud Go. Which basically limited us from listening to big artist on there giving us 30 seconds of a song just so we can buy that pay wall to listen to a full song we can listen to on other music apps. Not to mention the spotlight on our profiles. Are you seriously going to make us pay for that? That’s like paying $5 just to pin a tweet on Twitter. All I’m saying is I love SoundCloud, but I can’t stand it when they’re trying to beat around the bush just to make us pay for something.

    I have been a Soundcloud Go user for several years now. I have no problem paying for this subscription because I love this app, however there are issues which I feel if addressed, could make this app much better. For years I have dealt with tracks out of my likes being deleted or removed. I understand many of these tracks are leaked and therefore are not supposed to be on the app, however this is not the case for all songs that are removed. There is nothing worse than wanting to listen to a song and not being able to find it. Out of my 1,500 + likes I cannot remember the names of all songs I like. I believe if these tracks are deleted it would be very helpful that instead of them simply being taken down, they should still exist in your likes, even if you can’t listen to them. This way, I’m not really losing my music. I’d still be able to find the songs elsewhere, it’s just so frustrating having music disappear. Please address this issue. Also fix your search algorithms!! Neither of these issues seem like they would be difficult to address. Please fix for the sake of users!! Makes me rethink paying my subscription.

    It's a great app, i can listen to music in the order i want, my only nitpick is that ads are very frequent, which may sometimes destroy my flow, if only for a moment. Another thing, sometimes video ads are trying to play, even with my phone off, which leads to Music not playing at all until i open my phone and/or the app. (Now these problems CAN be solved via SoundCloud GO+ but as of right now, i don't have a source of income....)
  • SoundCloud Says Something’s Wrong with my Email Jun 3, 2021

    By Senpaibuns89🎵
    Hello, if you are reading this, please do. I want to tell you people that... Well... I don’t know how to start, but... When I was using SoundCloud one day, it randomly signed me out when I was just listening to a song. And I tried signing back in on my iPhone, but it said, “Error: Sorry, we couldn’t sign you in. Please check that you have already created an account and have entered the correct account details.” But it was the exact, and only email I’ve ever used on SoundCloud. I tried doing this a couple of more times, and it still kept saying it didn’t exist/wrong email details. I kept trying to sign back in for weeks, and it still doesn’t work. I tried to do “I forgot my password”, and when I inserted my email, it said something something went wrong. It’s not the password, or it would have said I put the wrong password. SoundCloud, please fix this. It says my email is wrong. And I am not making another account. I already have over 50 followers, and I don’t want to start all over again. Thank you, and other reviewers, for reading this. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Happy Summer!

    It's great and all, but I liked it better when it was an ad every second hour. Now it's as if it's an ad every second song. That's why I only put four stars, as well, not five. Another thing, I'd love if we could download song etc for free, because not everybody can afford paying every month either. I'm looking forward to seeing updates, honestly... Have a good day. ^^
  • Sad Oct 20, 2019

    By esl_209
    I’ve had this app for around 3 years and I had around 300 sounds that I had in my liked section because all of them wouldn’t fit in a playlist and I was okay with it. During those 3 years I loved it because I like underground rappers starting from SoundCloud and rising to the top and I would always search for new artist just so I wouldn’t have the same music as everybody else and I’d always show my friends and they’d always ask who it is and for me that’s a compliment cause putting someone on a new artist always makes me feel like that boy. But anyways a couple days ago when I was going to show my friend a couple new songs I found I went to the like section and all of my music that I had liked were gone. All those 3 years of searching for new music that little to no one has heard before done the drain and y’all don’t know how sad I felt cause now I’m never going to get to listen to those songs again because I dug really deep to find them and I’m not going to waste my time searching for it again. Soundcloud staff members, if you happen to see this please pleaseeee let me know if there’s anyway you guys can get my music back that’s all I want😭
  • Playlist Organization Nov 27, 2019

    By _shannon
    SoundCloud is great but there are a lot of glitches with playlists that need to be fixed. Trying to rearrange your songs in your own playlists is a hassle, it takes multiple tries to get the song to permanently move because it often just reverts back to where it was right after you moved it. I always have to close then reopen the open to check and make sure my songs moved to where I wanted them to. Also the icons you can upload for your playlist cover never seem to update unless you actually open up and go into the playlist. This doesn’t seem to be much of an issue on the desktop but on mobile my set display cover is never what I picked, it’s usually automatically always the same picture as the first song in that playlist. This gets really irritating because if I want people to check out my playlists, the first thing they see is the display image and I would rather them see the one I chose than of the picture from someone’s track! Lastly, please incorporate the option to move around your playlists. I have playlists from months ago that are at the way end of my profile and would rather have some of those at the forefront of my profile when you visit it. Really hope you consider ideas to fix these problems. Otherwise great app and I’ll always be a user.

    By Dan Creek Freek
    I like the variety of music you offer. But, it would be super awesome if the app would play the songs without stopping for no reason in the middle of songs. I have to, very often, start the songs again. This is super annoying and makes me want to use other apps that play the songs and do not stop in the middle of them. Fix that problem and you get 5 stars.

    Still no notifications like before, where you could reply to comments, who is following you new and who has liked. It used to do it, but changed to just PC version. Still too many false bot profiles on it, who can give you loads of listens that are false, even when you say no thanks politely.
  • I like it for music, I guess. Aug 8, 2019

    By Souple's soup
    I think what truly ruins the experience is the same culprit that could ruin any music app, ads are one of the main reasons I dislike using this app, they’re long, repetitive, and after a while become very annoying. It doesn’t help that the only ads you get are anti-smoking, I get it, smoking is bad, guys. But can we get some different ads, maybe instead of interrupting the music experience, just do pop-ups, at least get some new shorter ads. And don’t give us the option to skip ads if the ad ends before the skip timer, its infuriating. The timer will be 30 seconds and the ad will end just before. Don’t give us the option if we can’t use it. This has become more of a review on anti-smoking ads. I don’t smoke and I find these ads annoying, they’re deliberately unnerving. They don’t make me thinking “stop smoking” they make me think “ew why, I don’t even smoke why I’m I forced to endure this”. Besides this I think there’s a genre for everyone here, and you can find some nice music here that you can’t hear on the radio, though I’m mostly here for the soundclown memes.
  • not horrible, but not perfect Jun 8, 2020

    By TheDemon_Adelaide
    there are many minor issue about the app, like how you cant re arrange your liked songs and have to add every song to a playlist to control their positions (which i dont understand why thats even a thing). But the main 2 issues i have with this is the amount of times the app refreshes after its opened, to the point where it becomes the norm, and the amount of ads it give. The app constantly gives me ads in between songs and ruin the vibe, i could be listening to some sentimental music at high volume then get cut off by some guy talking about a brand new car i never knew even existed, exploading my ears by how loud the ads are, and not only that, sometimes it gives me 2 ads back to back, both 30 whole seconds, making me waste an entire minute listening to ads when i could of been done with the second song in the queue. many problems occur in the app, but other than that, the music is crispy, they give a variaty of different music every week, and it can play in the background. Its a fairly good app but its not perfect.
  • Obnoxious, but usable. Sep 16, 2018

    By Other_sans
    Ok, never thought I would write one of these, but I need to set this straight, just in case I’m not crazy. I love soundcloud, I really do. I’ve been using it for ages and it’s one of the only music apps that lets you stream underground music instead of mainstream music, of which I listen to more often. However, it was definitely better before. Not sure when, but years ago I used SoundCloud ad free without payment. It was awesome, it really was, and ads came up maybe one a day. However, one day, more and more ads came up, however I could skip them after like five seconds, so it was fine. But recently, around a couple months, I’ve been getting 30 second non skippable ads that come up after every like two songs. This is absolutely outrageous. I don’t mind an ad or two, but this many is just awe full. If you are going to throw ads at me like this, use banners. Really. And if you still can’t do THAT, at least make the ads easily skippable, and definitely not 30 seconds. No one is going to see this I’m guessing but I had to vent.
  • GO+ problem May 3, 2020

    By CloudPuffRainbow
    So I was loving the app until I woke up this afternoon and came to see more than half my songs were suddenly GO+ when before they were free. I’m seriously freaking out because all of my favorite songs are now previews and I have no idea what to do. I tried to see if anyone else was having problems in the comment sections and it seems like no one else is having this same problem. I seriously do not want to switch over to another music app just because SoundCloud decided to make half the songs GO+. And I’m not just talking about 1 artist suddenly switching from free to GO+ I’m saying multiple artists songs I have saved are GO+ now so it’s not an singular artist I’m talking about. Unless these artist just happened to talk to each other and decided “Hey why don’t we make our songs GO+ for no reason at all!”. Now that’s me being sarcastic, but I’m seriously freaking out because I can’t live through quarantine without my music. Please SoundCloud do something about this and don’t just scroll by ignoring the people’s problems.
  • Soundcloud is okay... but could use work in certain areas! Apr 1, 2021

    By bekehehb
    soundcloud is great i’ve always loved it but there’s so many songs that i can’t listen to because i don’t pay money every month??? there’s other apps i could download for music where i can listen to any song i want to, all of my friends and everyone i’ve talked to about it say that they don’t use soundcloud for this reason. my loyalty for soundcloud lies deep but i’m getting really annoyed every time i fall in love with a song and can’t put it on my playlist. i know for a fact that if this changed, so many more people would use soundcloud. or at least drop the monthly price down, i bet a large percentage of people that use soundcloud are 14-25 years old... people at this age generally don’t make as much money as the average person yet- due to being in high school and only having a part time job, or in college with a part time job trying to pay off student loans. not only would it make people happy, but it might be good for soundcloud’s benefits too!!!
  • pick your poison Dec 29, 2020

    By Disney/piratefan
    it deserves 5 stars but i can’t help but remember the days with no ads and no premium service, everything jus listening, it would be really nice if you cut one of these things or at least chill out on the ads. Like maybe not right after the first song i play EVERY TIME!! it highly discourages me from using and i switch to apple music very quickly afterwards. By including a paid subscription and ads you’ve basically given apple the advantage as it’s pre downloaded on my phone and actually has all fully mastered music. I really want to see this app thrive but i think the money your making w ads and subscription is holding that back. 100% understand that you’ve probably ran those numbers thousands of times, but i truly think your fan base would explode to even greater numbers if you were to cut at least some ads, there’s just too much in the way of freely scrolling. However I have hope and rooting for you !!
  • One major issue... Dec 31, 2018

    By sabrina_poptart
    I really love SoundCloud, and I love to listen to it outside, but for a while now it’s been completely draining my battery in just thirty minutes. For example with today, my just ten minutes ago was at 70%. But in a matter of minutes, I see it drained all the way down to 61%, then went to 59% just fifteen seconds later, and then suddenly my phone just shut off, and when it finally restarted after plugging it in, it was at 10%! Now I have to wait TWO HOURS just to for it to charge back up, only for the same thing to possibly happen again. That’s absolutely insane! This problem only happens when I’m using SoundCloud, and it happens nearly every time I use it! I just want to listen to music and enjoy my time outside! But now, I’m stuck in my room waiting for my phone to charge again because of this problem! Please, if anyone holds the advice to make my battery go down slower, I would very much appreciate it!
  • Ads!!!!!!!!! Dec 25, 2019

    By Merakkii
    I love the music I can find on the SoundCloud platform but I cannot STAND the way you have set up users to consume ads! Firstly, there used to be a way to skip most ads after 15 seconds but that feature seems to have been completely removed. Next, you guys place an ad after almost EVERYYYYY song and not to mention the fact that you also have put ads BEFORE a song plays when you manually change songs! The app is only good because of the ARTISTS music that we have access to, but this app/platform is losing me day-by-day and makes me want to download the music and get off the app altogether!!!!!!! Lastly, one of the most annoying parts of your ad setup is the fact that when you do click another song and an ad plays——— YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE *BLEEPING* APP!!!!! You HAVEEEE to let the 30 second ad play fully in its entirety with no ability to skip halfway through or to close the app to listen while continuing to do something else on another app like most do! I guess you can just do like me and close/relaunch the app a million times but it’s getting absolutely so ridiculous and frustrating that I had to let SOMEONE who might be involved in this terrible setup know it needs to be fixed or DRAMATICALLY reduced!!!!!!!
  • Lots of minor/medium problems May 19, 2020

    By RealDougtheDonkey
    SoundCloud is fine. I like that it’s free. There are some songs, like Elise by The Greeting Committee, that used to be free but now require a premium for you to listen to. I’d prefer if more were free, but beggars can’t be choosers. Anyways, I don’t even know if that decision is up to SoundCloud or the individual creators. There are some more glaring problems, though. For one, when I try to scroll down quickly, the app gets really laggy, shows me one frame a second, and scrolls down incredibly slow. It’s infuriating when I’m trying to go low down in my likes songs. Another issue is finding when a song was posted or looking at its description. Both of these are impossible on the SoundCloud app. It seems that the developers only care about the computer version of SoundCloud, when it is much, much better as a mobile app. I have no clue why you would focus on the computer more. It’s not like I can carry a computer in my pocket while it’s connected to headphones or anything. Also, when someone replies to one of my comments I’d like to be notified. This one is just a small suggestion. I usually like the app, but it needs major, major polishing. Please update it!
  • TOO MANY ADS Feb 11, 2020

    By joseph A D !!!
    I don’t really write reviews for apps ever. I used to love this app and still use it occasionally but these ads are getting way too out of hand. I understand that the app has to make money but it seems like they are intentionally throwing ads almost every other song just to get you to buy SoundCloud plus or whatever the paid version is called. And it’s not like they are short ads either. It’s every other song a 30 second ad. I have started just closing the app out and reopening it and going back to the same song in half the time it would take for these repetitive ads to be done. I do not think that this deserves one star. I put it there in hopes that someone will see it and make a change. 2 years ago I would have given this app 5 stars but now with the amount of ads I would not truthfully give it more than 3 stars. Update: it’s getting worse. I am having ads stop music in the middle of 3 or 4 minute songs. This is not okay. Later Update: ¿ALL MY ADS ARE IN SPANISH?
  • Important issue with the app that needs fixing May 12, 2019

    By Manemjef
    I’ve been using Soundcloud for over a year now and one thing that has been happening on an off again is a bug that crashes the app when your phone is turned off and listening to music. This was patched a long time ago, but it’s back because of a recent update. Whenever you are listening to songs and the phone is turned off, around the 0:45 mark the app crashes. It’s really annoying when you’re in the shower and you can’t access your phone. And on top of that, an ad plays every 5 or so songs instead of 10 to 20 when I am looking through songs. And it’s one of those video ads that pauses when you go to the home menu or turn off your phone, making you watch 30 seconds of disturbing imagery about what happens when you vape. I’ve hung up with it before, but at this point, I just can’t. I really urge SoundCloud to fix this. The only reason I still use this app is because it hosts some of my favorite artists.
  • New update Nov 2, 2017

    By Doabarrelrollrightnow
    I don’t normally write reviews, in fact the App Store didn’t let me write this until I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it because of a glitch, but I have to emphasize the importance of this. In the patch notes, it details performance enhancements and bug fixes. However, this new version severely increases the startup time. I now have to wait a solid minute on a loading screen before I can do anything whereas before it took half a second. I don’t know what causes this, and the app still functions otherwise normally. However, this new loading screen before the app boots up takes an unacceptably long time compared to what the load times previously were, and is especially awful considering that barely anything was changed within the app, yet the load time is multiplied by probably more than 20 times what it took prior to this update. If you haven’t updated yet, PLEASE WAIT FOR THEM TO FIX THIS, because it is severely hurting the functionality of this app.
  • Dissatisfied (Highly!) Aug 17, 2020

    By Imhatingmortalkombatxrightnow
    My main issue with this app is how often it crashes, especially when I attempt to search through various artist’ tracks. Consistent crashes occur on this app (my phone is brand new so I know it’s not a phone issue) and there’s barely any support for creators on this app. Creators have to download Soundcloud Pulse which is also another app that’s behind it’s times (you still can’t even check PMs that are sent to you). I shouldn’t have to go through hell and back to listen to my music, but with the way this app is set up I can certainly say that it is highly dissatisfying on nearly all fronts. Only reason why it gets 2 stars is because of the fact that it’s somewhat useful, but get this app with the times developers!!! Update: The app is still crashing every time I open up someone’s “latest tracks” section which is pitiful. However we can finally see notifications from the parent app instead of having to go to Soundcloud Pulse which is nice.
  • SoundCloud is being slow/Loading Error...Tap to try again Mar 16, 2021

    By raz_davidov
    I just want to say that I love this app so much, I use SoundCloud like 24/7! It is my favorite because not only do I love listening to the music I like, but I also happen to upload my own songs on there as well. My only issue with this is app is that it’s been lately being very slow on my phone. Whenever I go on SoundCloud nowadays it’s acts like one of those old computer machines that people would try to use back in the day, or it is also kind of like using an old phone because it runs very very slow on my phone. Also, I have been experiencing lots of loading errors on each song whenever I want to shuffle music on SoundCloud on my phone. Some work and then some just don’t want to work, and it is very strange because it hasn’t done this to me before. If there is any way that this issue can be fixed, please fix it so that I won’t have this problem at all anymore. Thank you so much!
  • ads after almost EVERY song Sep 18, 2020

    By littletwnstarsglittergraphic
    it’s ridiculous, i thought after i got a new phone this would go away, and it did - for a little bit. now, every time i open the app, i get an ad. if i listen to ONE song, i get an ad. if i don’t even listen to anything i get ads which sometimes stop playing when you leave the app, so you can’t play them in the background. i swear it didn’t used to be like this, i’ve tried turning on and off my wi-fi, clearing the app cache, deleting and redownloading the app, and nothing. for the record, i’m not opposed to the idea of sc having ads in general, it’s just that they’re so frequent i use the app less and less. i’m stuck to it because ive been using it for so long(large library) but that’s the only real reason. also, there are some glitches, like text not showing in the search bar in night mode, and liked songs/playlists not showing up when you search for them. my main gripe is with the ads, months later as i update this, i’m getting one after EVERY song. sc crashed and as soon as i opened the app it came back with an ad. i’d give 4 or 5 stars if it weren’t for this stuff and STOP with the same ads over and over it wouldn’t be as bad if you had some variety but it’s just verizon over and over again, i get it, and if anything i want to use verizon less now you really need to fix your ad program before everyone starts leaving.
  • App terrible interface but desktop great! Make them the same! Sep 17, 2018

    By Music computer guy works great
    The app is so terrible compared to the desktop version. The searches never come up the they do on desktop, I never see my page with my spotlight 5 tracks when I open it up, i have to scroll forever just to get to what is normally right there on my desktop.... the app gets ZERO. As an artist and some one and I are talking about music and who I like and what I sound like I’d like to be able to easily show them or find the name of the musician I was listening too earlier that day etc. I have more specific complaints but these are the ones that come to mind. The ‘usability’ and ease of interface is just terrible on the app version. I gave an 8 or something for the recommendation of SoundCloud to people but , it would have been a 10 if the stupid interface on the app wasn’t so clunky. The two interfaces (desk and app) should look and work essentially the same. A girl told me it was impossible for her to figure out how to repost my song on the app version. she gave up in frustration. In some way that reflects on me and I lost a precious repost. Also I’d like to be able to link my two accounts , even if it is just slightly more a month to have both on premium. That last note is not about the app obviously. Thanks for listening.

    By Matthew Swain
    1st, you can't download music for free to listen offline, you can only add it to a playlist. 2nd, If you're looking for a song, be prepared to most likely listen to a cover of it. You only get the full experience with a paid subscription. I'm deleting this app because it is very misleading. Very disappointing.
  • One Big Dislike May 27, 2018

    By Iden rahtsami
    SoundCloud I hope your reading this. The one thing that is keeping me from uploading more tracks and being able to see all the people who has liked or listened to my tracks like I used to is SoundCloud Go. I know you guys are probably losing money and your money thirsty but it doesn’t mean you have to have all these aspiring music producers pay monthly just to upload more tracks or view all the likes or listeners, just have people pay monthly to stream exclusive music and nothing else. I’m sure a lot of people would disagree with me on this but for a somewhat broke producer who’s paying monthly for other subscriptions, I just don’t have enough money to pay for SoundCloud Go, just to upload more tracks and other stuff I mentioned earlier. I hope you guys understand and wish to fix this problem that me and probably a few others are going through. Now, all you guys have done is rearrange some icons and make the app look somewhat cool, but you guys haven’t added anything new yet to the app which means I’m still very very disappointed. After every update this platform has made, it keeps getting worse.
  • Seriously? Aug 10, 2018

    I referred maybe 10 friends already to this app. This last version. I took a chance and still downloaded it, it’s broken. Crashes on each song I play. Maybe you should stop running all those ads? Every 2 songs there is a new ad “please upgrade to SoundCloud go” you have now convinced me why I shouldn’t update and wait for jailbreaks to block all those ads. You want to tarnish your name so bad that you put so many ads that it crashes your app. Good job! Driving back from a outing and sitting with a girl listening to ads, awesome. Why would I do that? I already pay for other things. We normal people can’t afford to buy so many useless subscriptions here and there. I can’t believe this. Also seriously, what happened to the easy way to get to playlists? They used to be big icons easy to click now as I am driving I can barely see my icons which discourages me from using this app, if I can’t see my playlists I won’t use the app. Period. I’m a veteran user from iPhone 5 (7.0.4) to iPhone X finally and each upgrade I get with my phones your app gets worse. How is that for useless programming?

  • Advertisements Nov 13, 2019

    By Hbegfyvewwedwe
    I usually don’t care about advertisements very much. However, SoundCloud advertisements are ridiculously obnoxious. Every few songs or so one plays, and that is perfectly fine. The issue is how every single one is anti-vape or anti-drug. I get the ideas. Do I need to hear an annoying cheesy anti drug ad every five minutes? NO. The one’s that are especially terrible are the anti-vaping ones. One of the ads plays the sound of a dog licking something after asking me to imagine French kissing a poodle and then relates it to vaping. What is wrong with people and Soundcloud for playing a disgusting ad like that? It does nothing to prevent vaping and pisses off listeners like me who couldn’t care less about vaping. In fact, it makes me want to vape just because of how disgusting the ad is. It’s disgusting and infuriating, so I really hope SoundCloud changes what the ads are that they play. I’m sure there are more advertisement offers than the nasty anti-vape ones that are utterly useless that make me want to tear my hair out.
  • I will be unsubscribing to SoundCloud Go Feb 5, 2018

    By A Great Tale
    I have been a SoundCloud Go member for over a year now and SoundCloud has always been my favorite streaming service, until now. Currently, the app uses data to play songs that I have downloaded so I can play them offline and when trying to change songs it continues to play the original song while showing the song I clicked in’s cover photo. Once this happen I can’t swipe right or left on the song in the listening tab even if the song is part of a playlist and if I press pause or play those actions happen for the original song and not the one who’s cover page I’m looking at. I have never seen problems like these in the app and have always been a loyal SoundCloud Go user, however if I can’t even listen to the music offline that I’m paying for it then why would I pay. My profile name is Gleason1214. I hope these issues are addressed and when they are I will resubscribe. Note: I would give a working SoundCloud app 5 stars.
  • SPACE OUT THE ADS MORE Jul 29, 2019

    By Dangerlaois
    I swear SoundCloud traps you into their ad free service. after the first time buying it, I literally cannot listen to a single a song without having an ad played right after, it’s super annoying, I’ve been buying the ad free service for a year now, and the second I can’t afford to pay it they wanna bombard me with ads. Before I used the ad free service I didn’t have a problem with the frequency of the ads but now it’s just annoying I’m ready to just stop using SoundCloud because of this, I don’t see why I have to listen to an ad after every song, I want to enjoy my music without an ad after every single song, please do something about this before I just stop using SoundCloud altogether cuz I’m completely annoyed at how I feel targeted by your ad service, let me listen to at least 3 songs before I hear the same ad again, cmon guys what are you even doing, let me enjoy some music, not listen to the same annoying ad after every song!!!!!
  • Behold, my least favorite music app Dec 23, 2020

    By Nicholas J Name
    Where do I start? This app is absolutely awful in the car. You’re just driving along, want to select a song and get back to driving? Good luck. Be prepared to jump through numerous hoops and complete a complex hand puzzle as you fight back the bugs and overall incompetence that make this app what it is. Random windows open, I get sent to the app store, sent to safari, everything but playing the song. Its absurdly dangerous to use on the road if you’re expecting ease and convenience. You have to manually save EACH AND EVERY SONG from your “Liked” list if you want to add it to a playlist. Its laughable to think I would sit there and one by one, go through thousands of songs to add to a playlist. If a song gets taken down for copyright, it still stays in your liked music even though the song no longer works which is completely useless. You cant unlike it, cant delete it. This app does everything possible to shove 2 ads in your face as often as possible. It would be understandable to see an increase in ads, while also seeing an increase in quality in the app itself but its still mind numbingly slow. Its at the point where Im considering going back to “MyMixtapez” and that app is HOT GARABAGE. Do yourself a favor and uninstall this smooth-brained app because the Devs are more focused on figuring out how they can bump it up to 3 ads at a time.
  • Terrible Customer Support Nov 25, 2019

    By Bdlabdkavdkebakdbs
    If you can even call it that. There’s virtually no way to reliably get in contact with a member of their support team. The only method seems to be some convoluted ticket system which requires you to fill out a form that they don’t even use to identify your issues. I know this first hand because I’ve used this system unsuccessfully multiple times and the same automated message emails me back signed by some “Otto”. Very sad considering all I wanted was help accessing my account. My problem was pretty unique so the only way to address it would have been through a 1 on 1 with a rep but since that’s seemingly impossible I’ll just delete the app. Maybe one day they’ll fix this sorry excuse of a customer care system they have going on and I’ll be able to access my account again with the help of an actual human being sinxe only “Otto” seems to be around currently and doesn’t care about helping anyone in any meaningful way. -3 stars
