    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.

    SoundCloud is a great for when you can't listen to all your favorite artist on a particular music app. However just now as I was trying to listen to my music nothing was working, the search, the home tab, everything. I tried uninstalling and reinstall and all that did was erase all of my songs, and the search and home tabs still don't work. This has never happened before out of all my time using SoundCloud, I hope whatever the issue is, it be resolved soon.
  • 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.

    It's really good, and has tracks I can't even have, especially since I'm stuck with Pandora. But I open the app today, and most of the tracks I try to play in a playlist don't work! So I try searching what I'm looking for and the search is also broken! I uninstalled and reinstalled and then it broke more- I'm very sad because it has all my favorite songs/sounds. I guess I'll just wait for it to work? Very disappointed.

    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.

    After the updates, SoundCloud isn't working. Every time I open the app, it's just the SoundCloud logo and it stays like that for a long time. Nothing changed for no longer than 5 minutes. (That's when I closed the app.) I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. Tried restarting my phone, didn't work. I hope this gets fixed soon.

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.

    I have found some great content on the app. However, it could be more user friendly and I don't like how complicated it is to cancel your subscription. This creates mistrust. Other similar apps offer more value and support the democratic principles to cancel or rejoin at anytime without all the hassle.

    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 been on SoundCloud for at least 5 and a half years and it’s awesome. There was at times bugs where I request songs to be in a playlist but rarely it crashes while doing so. Another thing is that there is a gimmick where there is songs that have like a “star” symbol or a premium song where you have to pay to listen for monthly cost. But not only you can listen to these premium songs, you can put download playlist for out of service ordeals. I would say the major downfall for this streaming service app is that I have to type the right perfect word for a song title, artist, or even a album in the search bar. If I misspelled a word, it would give me a totally different result of music or even no result at all. Therefore, I have to make sure to make more of a tension to spell the word of the song and such throughly. But other than that, I’ve been using the app at first free but I decided to pay monthly because I’ve been traveling more often now so it makes since of downloading songs. I recommend using this app. I’ve been previously using grooveshark until they shut down in 2015 then I switched over to SoundCloud.
  • I did not give permission to renew this APP Sep 22, 2021

    By LittleJess27
    I got a free trial. When that free trial was up, or even before it was up I removed it!! So why a month or 2 later when I buy an Apple pay card are you thieves going to charge my Apple Pay card? I don’t even have this app downloaded to my phone. I already reported it & I want my money back. This app was junk anyway. No offense but it even gives directions to go by to renew it. I never did. App is not even on my phone & they took it upon themselves to take $5-6 off of my Apple pay card. Now I have to wait 48 hours to see if they will refund my moneys? I’m poor so every dollar counts. I notice I’d 1$ is missing. I reported it & if I do not get a refund I will be contacting an attorney. Yes! Over 5.99! Why? Because I got that card to use TJ buy more I cloud, & not to pay for an app I am not even using nor is is downloaded to my phone anymore. Wanting to all, do not download this app with the free trial. Because even if you cancel it & remove from your phone as soon as you get money on any card you are using, they will take money out!!!! I want a refund & I want it ASAP! I can’t even enjoy my phone because I can’t even put cash more I cloud because of this!! Can’t even do the update on my phone I need to do because I there’s no space or GB’s to do it! Could do it if I could pay for more iCloud

    I usually really love SoundCloud, and I use it for basically everything, but it won't let me play any songs regardless. When I Uninstalled and reinstalled and still doesn't work and I'm very disappointed about this and I'm considering stopping using the app. I've restarted my phone a few times and SoundCloud is fully updated. It won't let me search or see anything.

    A fine service. The application is buggy, yes. My issue is with the removal of the unique freedom-of-audio-mixer that this app provided. Until the most recent update I was able to listen to tracks while simultaneously on a phone call with my colleagues. Now this functionality has been "patched" because some normies cant pause their music or turn it down before their call. Just give me the freedom-of-choice and add it in the settings. Apparently the only app I can rely on for this is Blackplayer.

    I was chilling and listening to music in the night and i closed the app for the day, when i woke up and tried to open the app, my whole account and every trace of it was gone, ive heard that it has happened to others too. I wouldve not complained as much if my playlists were still there, but no, every single song i had liked, or just in any playlist was wiped from the apps database, support does not work since they have to have the account link to check the account, but they are bots...
  • Unfortunately, just not worth it anymore. Sep 21, 2021

    By toneytone24
    A couple years ago I would’ve given 10/5 stars if I could. But nowadays, there’s so many advertisements that it makes listening not even worth it. I completely understand the reason for advertisements & for a long time, I could put up with them. However, I just used SoundCloud for the first time in maybe a year. THERE IS 2 ADS BETWEEN EACH TRACK. Back when I used to use SoundCloud for all my music, I’d have to put up with an occasional ad or two every 4-6 songs. But now it’s simply unbearable. I’m not exaggerating when I say I just logged onto SoundCloud & the first 4 tracks I played, I got 2 ads in between each. It was frustrating after the 2. Annoying after the 3rd. Infuriating after the 4th & I didn’t stick around for the 5th. I’ve been using audiomack as of late. I’d recommend that to anyone who doesn’t have music specifically on SoundCloud. I know that’s the reason I used SoundCloud so much. A lot of the underground artists would start on SoundCloud and their music would then find its way to other platforms. But I just can’t do the ads anymore. If you suggest paying for SoundCloud, why would I? The search engine all the way to the user experience is just terrible. Anyway, just my opinion. Happy listening, all!
  • 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.
  • 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!

    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!

    Responsive app with great UI design. Definitely the "frontier" of music artists as there are so many undiscovered artists that can be followed here and this is the only place to find their music. Really cool. Love the in-song comment feature, which in addition to the private messaging feature (which right now is desktop only), and the follow feature, make it more social than any music streaming app out there.

Another thing is that there is a gimmick where there is songs that have like a “star” symbol or a premium song where you have to pay to listen for monthly cost. But not only you can listen to these premium songs, you can put download playlist for out of service ordeals. I would say the major downfall for this streaming service app is that I have to type the right perfect word for a song title, artist, or even a album in the search bar. If I misspelled a word, it would give me a totally different result of music or even no result at all. Therefore, I have to make sure to make more of a tension to spell the word of the song and such throughly. But other than that, I’ve been using the app at first free but I decided to pay monthly because I’ve been traveling more often now so it makes since of downloading songs. I recommend using this app. I’ve been previously using grooveshark until they shut down in 2015 then I switched over to SoundCloud.

    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.

    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😭
  • Mobile App Bugs Jun 20, 2019

    By Baconherobt
    I’ve been experiencing two separate issues. The first one happenes when I’m streaming SoundCloud via blue tooth and the mobile app gets stuck in a loop. It plays the song then an ad and then the same song again and the same ad. So far the only way I have figured out to cancel the loop is to restart the app. The second issue I’m experiencing is (and it’s fairly difficult to explain) when ever I create a station from a song I like on the mobile app, it creates a station but down at the bottom of the screen where it shows the playlist for the station, it queues up some where between two and seven copies of the same song. All the copies of the song play at one time, but audio wise, only one plays. This problem does not stop when I close and restart the app, and it seems to happen to any song, even ones that are not in my “Likes”. I really enjoy SoundCloud, and it is my first choice when deciding what platform to listen to music on and it’s always disappointing to discover a bug. That being said, thank you for taking the time to read this.

    This app has so many songs and artists I listen to on Youtube and there are even different versions of said songs that aren't on Youtube. It's quite fun to run into new artists that are just starting and seeing them gradually become more and more well-known. Edit: I'm bumping my rating down to 3 stars because, after the most recent update, the app crashes and gives me an error message every time I try to open it. Please fix this!! Edit 2: Issue resolved, bumped up to four stars.
  • It’s okay, but... May 22, 2018

    By TInsaneF
    So I don’t really write reviews, but I have an issue or two (maybe more) with the app that really bugs me. One: the pause/play button on the control center/lock screen. I tap the pause button, but the music keeps playing anyways. I have to soft reset my phone each time, and it’s exhausting. Two: sometimes my music starts to crackle. It’s rare, but it’s so annoying when it does happen. Three: when I add a song to a playlist, it adds it all the way down to the bottom instead to the top, and when you have a long playlist, hitting edit at the top, scrolling all the way to the bottom, and waiting for the song to be dragged all the way up is also exhausting. Four: sometimes the time stops, so the song will be going, but it’ll say something like 0:10 when it’s just about over. And to fix it, I have to drag the dot to a different time, hoping it’ll land on something close, but when you don’t know what second it’s on, it’ll mess up the song, and ruin the listening experience. Other than that, it’s easy to use. But please fix these four problems.

    SoundCloud is a great for when you can't listen to all your favorite artist on a particular music app. However just now as I was trying to listen to my music nothing was working, the search, the home tab, everything. I tried uninstalling and reinstall and all that did was erase all of my songs, and the search and home tabs still don't work. This has never happened before out of all my time using SoundCloud, I hope whatever the issue is, it be resolved soon.
  • 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.

    After the updates, SoundCloud isn't working. Every time I open the app, it's just the SoundCloud logo and it stays like that for a long time. Nothing changed for no longer than 5 minutes. (That's when I closed the app.) I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn't work. Tried restarting my phone, didn't work. I hope this gets fixed soon.

    I have found some great content on the app. However, it could be more user friendly and I don't like how complicated it is to cancel your subscription. This creates mistrust. Other similar apps offer more value and support the democratic principles to cancel or rejoin at anytime without all the hassle.

    Apps works great. Some of the UI could be a bit better, like it would be nice if I could view my reposts and profile quicker, but the biggest issue I have is getting an ad that I can't lock the screen on when manually selecting a song. The ads are fine but that one just holds you there! Stop that!

    Had to drop my stars from 5 to 3. Been using the paid version of this app for awhile but as of lately, many of the songs and even whole albums have been deleted from my play list and I've had to go back and re-download them. Not cool when trying to DJ an event and your music isn't there.

    If you want the pull down window you have to turn on playback notifications. If you want it to keep playing after you close the app by mistake you're out of luck. It used to do that, but not anymore. I've tried every setting I could find; it's just not a feature anymore. If the Bedtime Stories podcast was available on another app I would switch in a heartbeat.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • I did not give permission to renew this APP Sep 22, 2021

    By LittleJess27
    I got a free trial. When that free trial was up, or even before it was up I removed it!! So why a month or 2 later when I buy an Apple pay card are you thieves going to charge my Apple Pay card? I don’t even have this app downloaded to my phone. I already reported it & I want my money back. This app was junk anyway. No offense but it even gives directions to go by to renew it. I never did. App is not even on my phone & they took it upon themselves to take $5-6 off of my Apple pay card. Now I have to wait 48 hours to see if they will refund my moneys? I’m poor so every dollar counts. I notice I’d 1$ is missing. I reported it & if I do not get a refund I will be contacting an attorney. Yes! Over 5.99! Why? Because I got that card to use TJ buy more I cloud, & not to pay for an app I am not even using nor is is downloaded to my phone anymore. Wanting to all, do not download this app with the free trial. Because even if you cancel it & remove from your phone as soon as you get money on any card you are using, they will take money out!!!! I want a refund & I want it ASAP! I can’t even enjoy my phone because I can’t even put cash more I cloud because of this!! Can’t even do the update on my phone I need to do because I there’s no space or GB’s to do it! Could do it if I could pay for more iCloud

    I usually really love SoundCloud, and I use it for basically everything, but it won't let me play any songs regardless. When I Uninstalled and reinstalled and still doesn't work and I'm very disappointed about this and I'm considering stopping using the app. I've restarted my phone a few times and SoundCloud is fully updated. It won't let me search or see anything.

    A fine service. The application is buggy, yes. My issue is with the removal of the unique freedom-of-audio-mixer that this app provided. Until the most recent update I was able to listen to tracks while simultaneously on a phone call with my colleagues. Now this functionality has been "patched" because some normies cant pause their music or turn it down before their call. Just give me the freedom-of-choice and add it in the settings. Apparently the only app I can rely on for this is Blackplayer.

    I was chilling and listening to music in the night and i closed the app for the day, when i woke up and tried to open the app, my whole account and every trace of it was gone, ive heard that it has happened to others too. I wouldve not complained as much if my playlists were still there, but no, every single song i had liked, or just in any playlist was wiped from the apps database, support does not work since they have to have the account link to check the account, but they are bots...
  • Unfortunately, just not worth it anymore. Sep 21, 2021

    By toneytone24
    A couple years ago I would’ve given 10/5 stars if I could. But nowadays, there’s so many advertisements that it makes listening not even worth it. I completely understand the reason for advertisements & for a long time, I could put up with them. However, I just used SoundCloud for the first time in maybe a year. THERE IS 2 ADS BETWEEN EACH TRACK. Back when I used to use SoundCloud for all my music, I’d have to put up with an occasional ad or two every 4-6 songs. But now it’s simply unbearable. I’m not exaggerating when I say I just logged onto SoundCloud & the first 4 tracks I played, I got 2 ads in between each. It was frustrating after the 2. Annoying after the 3rd. Infuriating after the 4th & I didn’t stick around for the 5th. I’ve been using audiomack as of late. I’d recommend that to anyone who doesn’t have music specifically on SoundCloud. I know that’s the reason I used SoundCloud so much. A lot of the underground artists would start on SoundCloud and their music would then find its way to other platforms. But I just can’t do the ads anymore. If you suggest paying for SoundCloud, why would I? The search engine all the way to the user experience is just terrible. Anyway, just my opinion. Happy listening, all!
  • 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.
