  • 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!

    I have used SoundCloud for the past 10 years or so (since 2012) and have amassed 2 big Playlist on there for electronic music. I found 2 of my all time favorite artist on SoundCloud and dont really have any complaints. Its one of the few apps that is actually really solid imo doesn't glitch, doesn't crash. The ads are only frustrating because you cannot do anything until they're done playing. I would like to see in the future maybe be able to "add" a next up so the ads still can play.

  • 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.

  • Web is web - App is App Aug 24, 2018

    First and foremost: Thank you Soundcloud, you are brilliant! You have somehow managed to accomplish the impossible: create a global platform for musical expression for artists who otherwise would never be heard AND deliver that to we humans hungry for food-medicine-energy that IS original music without bowing to cavalier monetization. Haven't a clue how you surpassed Apple, Google, Pandora and the rest save only for how amazingly perfect a team you have created. You are the Shaolin Monks of Music. You ARE the revolution. That said, you new App is genius! Crisp, clean, low footprint, perfect maximization of OS and platform utilization and the aesthetic attention to detail is both subtle and sublime. Outstanding accomplishment! As far as the whiners who confuse web with apps and have never coded a line - ignore them; this version of you app reflects the excellence and vision that guides your exquisite and critically necessary presence on earth. Gratitude sisters & brothers - inspired use of tech & heart - love this app!

    Great app love it, it's been around for a minute. Great streaming platform and useful for uploads. Thanks soundcloud, just have 1 minor inconvenience. When I'm already listening to music, then go to open the app again it goes to an advertisement. This occurs halfway through my song and it's frustrating. Love to see this fixed thanks. -kennysmokes

    This is a nice app but it have some bugs! When I jump to another app screen then go back, it jumps to next track no matter what! The app keep stop playing every 1 ou 2 minutes. Sometimes it also randomly restart the music playing from the begining for no reason at all. It doesn't hold listening history anymore. Don't know why, my device is a brand new Galaxy M51 and on another device something similar is happening.

  • 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!!!!!!!

This started a few days before new year and I can't figure out why all this problems have started suddenly. What am I to do? Pls help.

    I changed a lot of phones in 7 years, but everytime I downloaded soundcloud. A lot of creative people are using this platform to get some attention, some of them, thanks to SC, are rich now. People are not realizing that this platform set a stone for a new generation of music when artists do not need to be signed to huge record labels, but they can do their music freely. LOVE!!!

    Overall, SoundCloud is in my opinion the best platform for listening and discovering music. It creates a closer and more direct connection between artists and listeners. The repost and like features between artists is what creates the experiences. However, I think that your experience is completely reliant in finding artists you like that also actively repost music. Sadley, the ai music discovery system and overall platform leaves much to be desired, but the format of SoundCloud is what makes it

  • 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.

  • Great Music App! Dec 8, 2020

    By Calyde44
    This app is really great for studying, and doesn’t require a subscription just to use like other music apps do. Although there is a SoundCloud Go+ subscription to unlock more creator features and listen premium tracks, the base experience is enough for small time creators and casual listeners. One feature I would love implemented is the ability to rearrange playlists that you’ve either created or saved. I like everything to be organized, and sometimes scrolling down to an old playlist I still use often, would be better served at the top of my list. One bug I’ve also noticed, is that sometimes the comments don’t appear, when opening the comment window. Sometimes two or three comments are listed by the little text bubble icon, but pulling up the comments just tells you that “this track doesn’t have any comments” Apparently it’s been an issue for awhile, so I assume it will be fixed sometime soon. One more recent issue in the latest update is just a minor visual bug. When adding something new to a playlist, only one of my playlist images load, but when browsing my playlists all the thumbnails for each playlist load fine. Thanks for reading!

  • 🤦🏽‍♂️ Apr 9, 2019

    By CFC1025
    I have been a Soundcloud Go user for several years now. I have no problem paying for this subscription because I love this app, however there are issues which I feel if addressed, could make this app much better. For years I have dealt with tracks out of my likes being deleted or removed. I understand many of these tracks are leaked and therefore are not supposed to be on the app, however this is not the case for all songs that are removed. There is nothing worse than wanting to listen to a song and not being able to find it. Out of my 1,500 + likes I cannot remember the names of all songs I like. I believe if these tracks are deleted it would be very helpful that instead of them simply being taken down, they should still exist in your likes, even if you can’t listen to them. This way, I’m not really losing my music. I’d still be able to find the songs elsewhere, it’s just so frustrating having music disappear. Please address this issue. Also fix your search algorithms!! Neither of these issues seem like they would be difficult to address. Please fix for the sake of users!! Makes me rethink paying my subscription.

    Whats wrong with SoundCloud ? Both the app and website are not working as they used to earlier. The pages don't open and have to keep refreshing again & again and then, at some point, they may just suddenly show up. The website same problem. When trying to log in, the login page also keeps showing error till trying many times after which it may work. SoundCloud never had these web site and app accessibility problems. What's really wrong ? Where is the problem and how can it be sorted ?

  • 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.

    It's ok needs major updating for wireless headphone users tho the set I have just freaks out when it gets half way into most of the songs I listen to and glitches out BUT biggest majority of this app is I wish even some songs that dont require premium can still be played even if they aren't available in the US I hate going to YouTube or spotify just because they are copyrighted and cant be bought on disc especially for the uncensored versions the remakes suck.

  • 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!
