    Spotify was the best app for putting together playlists ahead of time to get excited and familiar with some new artists I wanted to see. Plus, it was the perfect music streaming app for times when we were hanging out away from the grounds.

    Spotify replaces an expensive DJ or a live band. Besides creating a personalized playlist, you can even save time by checking playlists that are already out there and be done with finding music in a couple of minutes.

    Road trips are a lot of fun but sitting in a car for 6 to 8 hours switching between radio stations vs. no music at all can be terribly boring. With Spotify, you’ll have non-stop music comprised by your favorite songs and discover new ones that are perfect for the summer.

    As a regular commuter on one of LA's most congested freeways, Spotify has been my lifesaver every morning while I'm inching along on the 405. I love that it has not only all my favorite tunes but also has podcasts and audiobooks for whatever I'm in the mood for.

    Whether you want to dance to classic tunes or salsa dance with your man on your wedding day, it all starts with the right choice for songs to play. Spotify has over 1000 song collections you can listen to and choose the best song to play for your first dance.

    Chances are you have listened to 100s of songs on Spotify. But did you know that you can also listen to Broadway music on here? I love the Spotify app because there is such a large variety of different types of music to enjoy.

    Martin Luther King's 1963 "I have a dream" speech is considered the pivotal moment of the civil rights movement. If you haven't had a chance to hear it in its entirety, you can use Spotify to do so and draw inspiration from one of the greatest figures in American history.

    One thing I love about Spotify is that it's not just one type of music. Maybe at 9 am I want to listen to worship songs when I get up but later I want to listen to some Barry Manilow. With this app, I don't have to change apps. They're all there.

  • Beat app but... Aug 27, 2020

    I personally love this app but the only part I very much do not like about it is that it will not let you skip songs and now for some reason it will not let me start the song over again this is a very nice app but I would like if it improved it says I have to get premium and I am broke right now LOL and I never really see myself getting premium but I think that’s something that they really have to change about this app it’s very much annoying and some songs will have very bad words and then I won’t be able to skip them because I will have my younger brother near me and I will see songs on my Play list and I will try to reading it but it won’t let me and I very much do not like that too and I do not mind all the ads but they are very long and people get annoyed by them and I have nothing to do about it so that something annoying with it too that’s not a big issue but it’s an issue that I very much don’t like about this app but still I definitely would prefer everybody to get this app which is probably needs to be updated but in conclusion I think this is a very nice app but I would definitely keep it has tons of music on here and that’s something that is awesome about it too and you can create playlist and more P.S thanks for reading this.
  • It keeps stopping Mar 31, 2021

    By GoldenShadow127
    A problem I frequently have is that when listening to my music, the songs will randomly stop playing and when I go to hit play again, the app restarts. Sometimes admittedly, it’s just because my app needs updated, but it will also do that completely randomly at times. What is with that? I’ll continue playing my music again, and not only will the song restart, but it also cuts off again but even earlier than it did before. It’s honestly extremely annoying and very difficult to deal with when I’m working either at home or at my job. Nine times out of ten, I’d have to close the app completely, and wait thirty to ninety minutes before my music will play uninterrupted again. It’s incredibly frustrating, especially since all I want is to play some music. Another thing is six skips per hour? Really? That’s so incredibly annoying, and it makes it worse when I’m wasting all my skips on the stupid suggested tracks you give me. I don’t want to listen to that!? If you absolutely HAVE to put something in, play more of the same artist at least. It’s so annoying to only have six skips and waste them all on music that I never wanted to hear in the first place. The worst part is, even if I go to a different playlist and come back, it continues playing the suggested track. I don’t want it! On that note, I also don’t want the extra songs you put in my playlists. I take one track off, another gets added. If I wanted that song in my playlist, I’d put it there.
  • Calm down with the long commercials. Jun 6, 2021

    By TravelingCowboy74
    I could be wrong, but isn’t it better to hit people with quick, to the point, shots of why we should get the product? The 30 second commercials seem too long; forget about 2 min of hearing about each product. And do ya have to keep repeating the same thing 3 different ways? And that’s if there’s creativity involved; if not it’s just repeat the same words back to back to back to back. So you’re saying we haven’t got any smarter since Biblical times? Back then, making the point repetitively was the best way to get info to stick in our thick skulls. Here’s the truth -that you can only change by distracting me with annoyance at 90 seconds of redundant raving- I will “click here” if I’m truly interested! Which seems like what the goal should always be. Here’s 15 seconds of this great product, wanna know more? Click here to go to the site. And if now isn’t the right time, then “click over here ~tell me later; take me to the site in 20, 30, 50 min etc.” I realize that 25 years ago our entertainment came with over 20% commercial time. No choices, just the way it was -sit there and wait. And it was too much advert info then. And now we get all this “free” info\entertainment on the interwebs. But it’s somehow even more advert info now! Deflating difference is; it’s now everywhere, all the time, nowhere to look if you don’t want pitch, pitch pitch.

    I love spotify. Have used it for about 7 years now. Just in the past 2 years the app itself has been complete garbage. Never works properly. Constantly crashes and will play music when it's not supposed to. Sometimes I have to restart my phone or Uninstaller the app to fix it and have done this about 50 times. I want to keep spotify but at this point it's not worth it. I'll use any other platform at this point but just don't want to lose my music
  • not bad music source but could be better Apr 12, 2021

    By siAksv
    Okay, i have been using this app for a while and have experienced lots of weird things. First i want to talk about the shuffle thing. you can shuffle songs so that it picks random songs in any playlist, but thats where my huge problem is. you cant pick specific songs you just have to listen to the playlist until it plays that song. and if you have shuffle mode on for a little bit then you cant turn it off.. so, shuffle mode has a lot of disadvantages. I cant get rid of shuffle mode so I saw another glitch. Lets say that i decided to make my own playlist, I make it and other songs are added just because of shuffle mode, but you can add songs to get rid of them. Okay, then my playlist “ends” and then RANDOM songs play.. I have to play a different playlist now. and sometimes if i return to the one that i was playing the song is still there, and if i skip it more random songs will start playing, then i have to wait a whole HOUR to get more skips. I feel like non premium users should have more freedom of doing what they want. oh, and with shuffle mode on, you cant pick a song or make it into a loop. and like i said, after a little bit you cant turn shuffle mode off. So yeah, this app could definitely improve more things. Also, please don’t take what i'm saying the wrong way. Thank you for reading, and it would be a pleasure if one of these got fixed! Byee!!❤️

    I pay for the premium and I'm 90% satisfied. Every now and then I'll pick a song and maybe 1 or 2 seconds into the song it changes to a whole different song within the same playlist and I can't skip back . This is crucial for when I'm hitting the gym so it is super annoying. I've had to uninstall it 3 or 4 times, 2 or 3 times for completely unresponsive behavior and once for playlist issues. So it gets 3 stars from me.
  • Lack of options, randomly censored songs Jan 17, 2021

    By espeonics
    This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with. My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen. Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.
  • Almost Amazing Nov 6, 2019

    By guitarguyct
    This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on). My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.

    Spotify is really useful, i just think that there should be some quality of life improvements, like being able to select multiple songs at once to add to a playlist, and to be able to add songs to multiple playlists at once. I also think that the algorithm that is used needs to be improved, because i haven't listened to Ed Sheeran in years, so i don't want to listen to his new albums.
  • Needs improvement, overall good Aug 2, 2021

    By cupcakego
    Okay, so this is a great app if you’re a normal person that only has around fifteen or so playlists. But I’m not normal and i like to make loads if playlists and then i need to delete them. I think a really good feature you could add to this app is a delete button on the playlists tab. It would help with being able to select a mass number of playlists to easily delete. It would also be good to have a similar feature with adding songs. If there were a button that allowed you to add the same song to multiple playlists at once, instead of having to go through each playlist and add the song individually. Also, it would be good if in a playlist you could organize where each song goes like if you want to organize it alphabetically or something on mobile. Finally, it would be nice if you could add a way to view the amount of streams an album has, or make it easier to see. A group of people including me are trying to get an album to a certain number of streams, and I can’t view the number, although i think other people can, so if you could make the streams a bit easier to access that would be nice. Overall great app, needs improvements though ;)

    I've had various crashes on the app, music will play when you don't want it to, and a lot of issues with the app being slow or taking too long to close, I just changed phones so that could be the case or it could be an update, I'm not sure, but I've had a lot more problems within 1 month than I have over my 5 years of use, if you aren't experiencing this, app is 5 stars, I've never had problems with it until recently, but yeah, just wanted to voice my frustrations.

    This should not be listed as a free app. Unless you pay money, this app is useless and infuriating. On the PC, I've composed playlists of the songs that I want to listen to and have no problem doing so. On this app, Spotify decides that it knows what you should listen to instead, and you can only skip a limited number of terrible songs before it tells you to spend money. So I can't choose what I listen to, and can't even skip over songs I hate. Utter garbage.
  • Sep 14, 2021

    By Andrew Trimmer
    Why can't I fast forward from the lock screen anymore? And why am I hearing more ads, even though I pay for a premium membership? This is complete BS. Taking away the ability to easily skip ads is a complete and utter dick move. I pay to not hear ads, if you are going to make it so I can't skip them, then sayonara. This needs to be fixed real effing fast, or I am gone.

    The update is terrible. I don't even know where to begin. 1: it adds songs to your playlist without your permission if your playlist doesn't have fifteen songs. Theres no option to disable this. 2: the ads are way too much. Three to sometimes even fifteen minutes of JUST ads. 3: the "suggested songs" feature. When you click on a song, it plays different suggested songs instead. If you add the song to your playlist, it does add the right song to the playlist. And those are ONLY three.

    Got an email 09/12 that my free trial would end 09/14. I followed the links and cancelled the subscription effective 09/14. Today, 09/15, they charged me for Premium. With no "contact us" info on the site, I chatted with a bot who transferred me to a human who said I had been refunded already. I just have to wait for it to process. Meanwhile the money they took was for a prescription. I have to wait to get my meds. I budget to the penny on a VA disability fixed-income. This threw it all off. 👎

    Why do I always have to redownload my songs after restarting my phone? It's such a huge hassle especially when I'm outside the house. And please, fix your notification options. When i am not playing any song the music notification stays on my notification bar. Its annoying. Almost every bug in your app is annoying. Find at least a solution to fix it. We're paying for good features. If your gonna give me a buggy app we might as well stop the subscription.

    This app sucks. It is nice to forward through ads. But listening to it through Bluetooth while cutting grass or something, it stops a lot. You have to pull your phone out, unlock it, and push to play. YouTube doesn't do that. Also the video stops working if connected to vehicle, even if stopped for lunch. I don't have pandora or any other music app other then YouTube Music and never have these issues with that app.

    For the past couple of months this app just won't start I have cleared my cache and updated the app and it's still not working. I PAY for your service to use when I need it. I've contacted customer service twice and heard NOTHING back. Been a member for nearly 10 years and this is rubbish service not to reply to your customers when your app literally isn't working!!! And I made the effort to contact you privately first. I'd appreciate a refund and customers... I'd think twice.

    By Andrew Kelly
    (NEW) Whenever I open the app and hit play (playing from where I left off in liked songs, which is sorted alphabetically) it constantly goes to the same song next which 1: isn't in ABC order and then plays the entire album (which again, isn't in ABC order...) I can't stand hearing the same few songs every time I want to play music. Any reason why this is glitching? Deleted my cache and data to try to fix it but no matter what, it will go from any letter to that one song then follow the album.
  • trouble with the app Aug 13, 2021

    By soomxii
    So to get started I’ve had this app since 9th grade and not even when I had my iPhone 6 Plus did it give me issues like the app not working for me. Currently I have the iPhone 12 Pro But in the past couple of days I can’t use it at all, meaning I can’t scroll/interact with the app. I can’t choose a playlist, I can’t search for a song, I can’t play a song. I’ve done everything that I’ve seen online, tried logging out well the app doesn’t respond, so I did the best next thing which was uninstalled. I uninstalled the app and proceeded to log in again it work and I was able to play a song, but just 15 seconds of the song before it stopped and the app went unresponsive like it previously was. I turned off my phone I thought that would help, when I turned it back on and tried using the app it was the same thing. I ended up resetting my phone, entering my iCloud and dealing with all of the starting “new” for the app to not work. Please can a developer help me fix the issue or at least advice me on what to do next? I seriously love the app, but if I can’t get it to work I will have to cancel my subscription for it and get Apple Music instead because listening to music is one of the things I do the most. I seriously only use this app for music streaming so I’d be so sad having to give it up just for that. :’(

  • Complicated May 11, 2020

    By Perfect app to have
    I'm just gonna get straight to the point and this is just me speaking my mind but I feel the fact that you can't purchase premium through the actual app and instead have to go to a whole other website is just complex, and this is just my opinion but I dislike the fact that there is not really much you give to the people who don’t have premium, we can't loop songs, we can't make a playlist without 8 other songs being added to it, etc. There are some kids who's parents may not allow them to buy premium. I'm just trying to listen to a song that could only be found on this app and as I said before we can't loop it, I even tried adding it specifically to it's own playlist but it added like 8-9 other songs. Just because you are recommending me something doesn't mean I want it on my playlists. All I'm saying is just give us something, something to at least work with.....I was going to buy premium but now I feel it's not worth it and I should just stick to SoundCloud like I was before. I hope you understand why I feel this way and I hope people without premium get more opportunities at listening to their favorite songs without issues in the future.
  • great app, but annoying rollback of features in recent update Jun 19, 2019

    By PhoenixBirdCity
    This is a review about the recent change to "Your Library". Generally these changes are a substantial UI improvement and navigating between various views is far more intuitive now that the notion of a my library home page, with all relevant shortcuts to artists, podcasts,... only available there. the only issues I’ve run into as of yet are 1. the lack of the a-z navigation scroll bar in the Albums section and 2. the lack of a move to front list of recently played albums. re 2. however, I feel this may actually be useful toward encouraging people to diversify their listening, as the design of defaulting to recently played in my experience makes it difficult to spend time finding something I’d like to listen to (either new or archived in my albums section) when my attention is already so contested by everything else. so yeah, I actually like what I said was my second complaint, and thinking back had thought about that before. being able to scroll quickly through the albums seems like a good interaction to keep, however.

    I have the premium family subscription. Me and my kids love it. Great variety of music, really like the podcasts/parcasts. Love no ads, and the shared music feature where you can make a playlist from everyone's music, great for car rides. Highly recommend. Worth the under $15/month for 5 different users. Also, I rarely have any issues with glitching or slow uploads, and all features seem to work properly the majority of the time.

    I’ve been using this app for a day and it’s been doing good but from all the reviews I’ve been reading it seems like it crashes a lot and it has to many ads. And there is like 23 reviews I’ve read that say these things! (I’m a fast reader) pls pls pls pls fix this if this is true and it seems as if it is. And most of the reviews give you guys 1 star and so sense I haven’t used it for a long time I give it 3stars because for now it seems like a good app. And also if you yes you not the creators of the app, if YOU are reading this, before you just start falling for the reviews that say amazing but... and stuff like that, click on “sort by” and click on most critical and you will see probably like 70 reviews saying all this stuff and if you really think about it, there are only like 13 reviews that say good stuff about this app! So as I said 3 stars for now and as I start using this app longer I will see if I still like it or if I’m going to go with the other like 70 reviews that say this app is bad. And if you made it this far goodbye and have a nice day, morning, night, evening, afternoon or wherever you are!

    So, I love this app so much. I can’t live without it 😅 Everything is great! But there is one thing that I have a problem with. I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this problem but, basically what happens is while I’m listening to a song It just like, out of nowhere the music just stops! I don’t close the app at all. Usually this happens when my phone isn’t even on. (Like if the screen timeout goes off.) This problem is so annoying, probably more annoying then the adds not gonna lie. And when the music stops, it start all over again! Once this happened to me while I was done with the song so I had to listen to the whole thing again! This has happened so many times. It even happened more then 4 times while I was writing this review! I know I could just skip the song but I would probably run out of skips because I don’t have premium. I just want this to be fixed because it’s really annoying. I hope the app developers see this and fix it. Other then that, this apps one of the best ones I have and one of the most used too! Thanks for reading!
  • Queued songs don’t work well anymore Feb 11, 2020

    By Kadeorade5
    I can’t queue songs anymore. I have to individual click them in the order I want them to play after each individual song ends. It doesn’t matter if I click the triple dot and click add to queue, or if I slide the song to the right to add, it doesn’t work consistently. Sometimes it works, but it has been really bad lately. Also, when the queued songs would work and be added to the list of queued songs, I would move them around in a different order because I would want them to play in a different order than when I queued them. While moving a song that was towards the bottom to the top, it would move, but then not stay where I wanted placed it. The app would then crash or need to be quit in order to be functional. Update: As I was writing this I just tried queuing some songs and it worked. I only queued one song at a time. The song doesn’t appear in the queued list though, so it makes me think it doesn’t work when I queue. Please make sure this works. I really love this app! Thanks for all of your hard work!

  • Update Tanked User Experience Jun 19, 2019

    By Guilicious
    “Recently played” was a great feature for people who only listen to albums and not playlists. Once you have a hundred or so artists, hundreds of albums, and thousands of songs in your library rooting through them on a daily basis is untenable. Previously I could just see the last 20 or so albums I played in an easy to use screen that was basically the landing pad for “your library”. This was basically what I used to decide what to listen to on a daily basis. Aside from being moved it now uses a large tile format that requires much more scrolling for the same information. Really inconvenient when im driving and trying to change albums. Most importantly though it cant be edited. So now if I listen to 4 or 5 one offs I can’t delete them to keep my most favored albums in tact. I have to wait for them t roll off and can never retrieve the albums they bumped from the list. So what was previously a mostly automated process had now become something I will have to track manually, which makes me want to cancel the service.
  • Calm down with the long commercials. Jun 6, 2021

    By TravelingCowboy74
    I could be wrong, but isn’t it better to hit people with quick, to the point, shots of why we should get the product? The 30 second commercials seem too long; forget about 2 min of hearing about each product. And do ya have to keep repeating the same thing 3 different ways? And that’s if there’s creativity involved; if not it’s just repeat the same words back to back to back to back. So you’re saying we haven’t got any smarter since Biblical times? Back then, making the point repetitively was the best way to get info to stick in our thick skulls. Here’s the truth -that you can only change by distracting me with annoyance at 90 seconds of redundant raving- I will “click here” if I’m truly interested! Which seems like what the goal should always be. Here’s 15 seconds of this great product, wanna know more? Click here to go to the site. And if now isn’t the right time, then “click over here ~tell me later; take me to the site in 20, 30, 50 min etc.” I realize that 25 years ago our entertainment came with over 20% commercial time. No choices, just the way it was -sit there and wait. And it was too much advert info then. And now we get all this “free” info\entertainment on the interwebs. But it’s somehow even more advert info now! Deflating difference is; it’s now everywhere, all the time, nowhere to look if you don’t want pitch, pitch pitch.
  • Love it but.. Nov 16, 2020

    By Danny2535
    This app is awesome! I love how you can listen to your own music, and share it. But I don’t like how it adds music to your playlist, and won’t let you remove it. I don’t get that I really hope you fix it soon. Also, when I only want to listen to my music it makes me listen to a suggested track that I can’t get out of. What is with that? And, there is too many ads. And only 6 skips per HOUR?! Why? And, when my playlist is making me listen to other songs, I have to go to a different playlist, listen to 1 song in it, come back to my playlist, and there it is. another song I don’t need. I am probably one of those users that will get ignored, but if you are looking at this, congratulations. You get a gold sticker. I wish that the users without premium could get AT LEAST 10 skips and hour. It’s not fair with only 6 per hour. I also want to add, that when I want to listen to my music ONLY and not some stupid suggested track, I can’t get out of it, because I used all of my skips on the DANG SUGGESTED TRACK! Fix that please! I’m sorry if that is all jumbled. But PLEASE fix it. I have seen the other users complaints, and it looks like most of us are having the EXACT same problem. Smh. If you made it this far. FIXX THEMM. My temper is getting lost because of this app, not to be dramatic and all. Have a good day.

    It was so good until today. I don't know what happened but I think my subscription ran out and now I can pause, skip or anything. I can only play songs but after like 5 minutes of not opening the app it stops and the music is really quiet. It doesn't even pause when I open a video. Please fix this, I really wanna enjoy music a bit more
  • Little Concerned... Feb 22, 2021

    By MMA girl!
    This app is amazing! I literally use this app every day. I love this app so much because it has all the songs I’ve searched for (even from YT videos I wasn’t sure was there). Just one little thing. So I know the age rating is 12, but I’ve had this since I was 9 (I’m 10 now) and I have seen (not listened to) a... let’s just say really inappropriate thing I probably shouldn’t know about. This concerns me. What if a really young kid comes across it, listens to it, and ask their parents about it. Now I don’t really know what age kids should know about.... this subject, but I just think you shouldn’t have it on there. Some people may like enjoy it or something (if so, ew gross) and they would listen to it I guess. Sorry idk where this is going. Well the “main thing” is that there is an inappropriate thing I saw (again, I didn’t listen to. Also I didn’t “see” it I just like saw the picture thumbnail thingy or whatever you want to call it) and I just thought “bruh this should t be on here”. So I’m asking to put more kid appropriate things on here so they don’t have to go through that awkward moment or whatever. Eh. Anyways thank you if you read this other than that this is a really great app, and I really love it. I’m actually using it right now 😅😬😁👍🏽. —Love PrincessTia (nickname)
  • Pretty good but... Mar 23, 2021

    By catzlovs12
    It’s a pretty good app, you can get a lot of music and make your own playlists so that’s nice. It also has good sound quality and does it’s best to stabilize sound so you don’t get really jarred by the start of a new song. My complaints are that there is a bug that just stops your music even when your internet connection is great. It often happens when your phone screen is locked, and sometimes when you open your phone and go to the app it has completely crashed, other times it has just paused it for some reason. My other complaint is more trivial, and it is about the auto play of recommended songs. I understand that the app is designed to act like a radio station, where you can’t really choose which songs you play and some will be played that are relating to the genre. However, I just really hate this feature, especially when I am playing songs from a artist that I really like however it is in a genre that I generally hate. Ideally the recommend song would be close enough to the artist’s style that the user might like the song as well even though they don’t like the genre, however that hasn’t been the case yet for me. Other than my two complaints, this app is pretty great and I recommend it.
  • I love this! All though…. May 27, 2021

    By its_me234
    I love this! But I woke up one day wanting to listen to music and I go on the app turn on my playlist and it wont let me see any of the music thought it was me so I’d fix it later but it was the app I think then when I click play all these songs come up that aren’t even on my playlist or that I’ve listened to before and so I go to the song and click play hoping that that would work but it it doesn't and I deleted and then reinstalled it and I still didt work And yes I resented it but for example I clicked my song to play and then it plays a song from frozen I never ever listened to but I’m not sure if it’s something I did or something the game dose because I have this on my tablet and it works perfectly fine but it’s only on my phone and my tablet I usually use it has most of my stuff got my phone bout 11 years after my tablet so you can see how this is annoying to me I play the song but it dosent go on most of the games apps or stuff I go into I get that’s how it is but I am at a lose I don’t want to have to delete the app because for me its a little stressful and I don’t get to listen to my music anymore if you could please fix this or something I’d really appreciate it it’s a really great app it’s truly awesome thanks
  • Love it but.... Jun 9, 2020

    By 😂😄😃
    Why I like this app: I like it how you guys have made playlists and let us just pick a song and not just shuffle play well... most of them. Also you don’t have too be premium too use this app ( and please keep it like that because some people don’t have enough money or just don’t wanna waste it on something you should be able too use free). Why I don’t like about this app: first is how you can’t just pick a song from a playlist and not have limited skips, I think that’s kinda weird to not be able to play a song you wanna hear from your playlist. Now I wanna talk about the adds, let’s just say it’s irritating like when your listening too a song and just randomly get this add that says. “Watch this short add for 30 mins of add free music” then when I hit “no thanks” a add plays like do y’all do this to make more money or just to be irritating 😐😑🙄 like c’mom can we just get no adds!?!?!? And just buy premium for better quality, limited skips, and just pick songs from playlists and not wait 1 hour for 6 skips? Like really the only thing you should get premium for is better quality and limited skips! Like can we have some freedom?! Look this just my opinion about this app so don’t get mad😅😅😅
  • It’s great but.. Oct 15, 2020

    By Sailor-Cat
    So I started using it because I didn’t need to have a subscription to use it freely unlike Apple Music which I used for awhile then cancelled the subscription I had. It’s kinda confusing like you can’t really save stuff. Also, the 6 skips an hour thing is annoying too! so I understand it’s most likely to keep the app free and all. but when I made my account it said I could listen with infinite skips and ZERO adds for free nothing about the seven day free premium trial! But no no no life isn’t that simple so basically I download it on my phone for the first time (I made my account on a computer so I could listen to music at school also I still had Apple Music at the time of making the account) and then this notification pops up that my seven day free trial has expired. Oh and this is right after I had texted my mom that’s it completely free! But we could have totally avoided this problem if the developers would just flipping fix their stupid app, and not say that with an account you can “listen completely free with no adds and infinite skips” cause that’s a lie. And don’t reply back to me saying “ That’s not true we say something about the trial!” Because then you’ll be lying even more!😡😡😡
  • Amazing amount of free music; could use some work on "made for you" playlists Mar 6, 2020

    By Aelar Lightbringer
    It's very easy to use, and has literally every song I've tried to find (including some extremely obscure ones). I only have two complaints. One is that in the playlists that the app creates for you, it tends to only play songs that you have already listened to multiple times (in shuffle lol) or popular, similar ones. If I follow an artist, there should be an option to mix their more obscure music with the popular stuff. If a playlist is "made for me," it should be able to play whatever it is I like, whether it's a superstar's most popular hit songs, or the most obscure songs released by a guy with 500 listeners. It's not a radio station; it only has to cater to the tastes of one specific person. Secondly, there should be a way to add, if not entire artists, then at least full albums to playlists that you're creating from the app. I follow over fifty artists, and if I like all of their music, I don't want to add all 3000+ of their songs individually. It wouldn't be a hard feature to add, and would make me actually likely to create a playlist or two. Thank you for reading my review!
  • Fine app, but mean to non-premium people. Aug 29, 2018

    By jedihobbit
    I like using this but I find it frustrating when I’m playing one of my playlists that has over 500 songs get randomly switched to playlist radio. It would help if playlist radio was something you’d voluntarily go to rather than the app just deciding for you. I also don’t like how there’s a specific folder just for getting premium on the mobile version because heck, you can’t even buy it from there, you have to go online and that just kinda defeats the purpose of putting a whole folder there. If you want to advertise it that bad, just put it somewhere else. Also, the ads are so loud! I get it, you want our attention, but how the heck am I supposed to listen to your “quality music” in premium if I lose my hearing while hearing an ad for it? Seriously, chill. I know that you’re only allowed 6 skips per hour as a non-premium member, but I’ve noticed that you have to be listening to music in that hour in order for that to happen, which is dumb. I use up my skips, get out of the car to work for about 7 hours, get back in to go home and my skips are still all out and I can’t do anything. Please fix!
  • It keeps stopping Mar 31, 2021

    By GoldenShadow127
    A problem I frequently have is that when listening to my music, the songs will randomly stop playing and when I go to hit play again, the app restarts. Sometimes admittedly, it’s just because my app needs updated, but it will also do that completely randomly at times. What is with that? I’ll continue playing my music again, and not only will the song restart, but it also cuts off again but even earlier than it did before. It’s honestly extremely annoying and very difficult to deal with when I’m working either at home or at my job. Nine times out of ten, I’d have to close the app completely, and wait thirty to ninety minutes before my music will play uninterrupted again. It’s incredibly frustrating, especially since all I want is to play some music. Another thing is six skips per hour? Really? That’s so incredibly annoying, and it makes it worse when I’m wasting all my skips on the stupid suggested tracks you give me. I don’t want to listen to that!? If you absolutely HAVE to put something in, play more of the same artist at least. It’s so annoying to only have six skips and waste them all on music that I never wanted to hear in the first place. The worst part is, even if I go to a different playlist and come back, it continues playing the suggested track. I don’t want it! On that note, I also don’t want the extra songs you put in my playlists. I take one track off, another gets added. If I wanted that song in my playlist, I’d put it there.

    I love spotify. Have used it for about 7 years now. Just in the past 2 years the app itself has been complete garbage. Never works properly. Constantly crashes and will play music when it's not supposed to. Sometimes I have to restart my phone or Uninstaller the app to fix it and have done this about 50 times. I want to keep spotify but at this point it's not worth it. I'll use any other platform at this point but just don't want to lose my music
  • not bad music source but could be better Apr 12, 2021

    By siAksv
    Okay, i have been using this app for a while and have experienced lots of weird things. First i want to talk about the shuffle thing. you can shuffle songs so that it picks random songs in any playlist, but thats where my huge problem is. you cant pick specific songs you just have to listen to the playlist until it plays that song. and if you have shuffle mode on for a little bit then you cant turn it off.. so, shuffle mode has a lot of disadvantages. I cant get rid of shuffle mode so I saw another glitch. Lets say that i decided to make my own playlist, I make it and other songs are added just because of shuffle mode, but you can add songs to get rid of them. Okay, then my playlist “ends” and then RANDOM songs play.. I have to play a different playlist now. and sometimes if i return to the one that i was playing the song is still there, and if i skip it more random songs will start playing, then i have to wait a whole HOUR to get more skips. I feel like non premium users should have more freedom of doing what they want. oh, and with shuffle mode on, you cant pick a song or make it into a loop. and like i said, after a little bit you cant turn shuffle mode off. So yeah, this app could definitely improve more things. Also, please don’t take what i'm saying the wrong way. Thank you for reading, and it would be a pleasure if one of these got fixed! Byee!!❤️

    I pay for the premium and I'm 90% satisfied. Every now and then I'll pick a song and maybe 1 or 2 seconds into the song it changes to a whole different song within the same playlist and I can't skip back . This is crucial for when I'm hitting the gym so it is super annoying. I've had to uninstall it 3 or 4 times, 2 or 3 times for completely unresponsive behavior and once for playlist issues. So it gets 3 stars from me.
  • Lack of options, randomly censored songs Jan 17, 2021

    By espeonics
    This app is really annoying in the sense that I can’t organize my music the way I used to. The “Genre” option doesn’t even exist. If you want to organize by artist/album it has to download your artist/album’s songs. It’s just a bunch of ridiculous extra buttons that I shouldn’t ever need to deal with. My least favorite thing about this app is, songs will randomly become censored without warning. That means, I was in a huge Johnny Cash phase, and had listened to “A Boy Named Sue” like a hundred times, then one day, the line goes from “I’m the son of a ***** that named you Sue” to “I’m the [BLEEEEEEEEEEEEP] that named you Sue”. Like WHY. All of my songs are fine, but one day suddenly one will be censored after enjoying it for months. I’m paying for this service, and have no parental settings or anything turned on to make that happen on my end. This should not ever happen. Besides that, it’s decent enough as a music app. Music comes out fine, making playlists is easy, they do have a wide selection of music, and even have personalized playlists that aren’t so bad a lot of the time. I can organize my songs in any order I want to. Sure, if I want songs organized by genre, I have to make an entire separate playlist or just listen to a pre-made playlist with songs that I don’t even care about that I have to constantly skip and skip and skip, but hey, at least it’s somewhat possible.
  • Almost Amazing Nov 6, 2019

    By guitarguyct
    This app is very easy to use and, obviously, the content is fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if not for one significant problem: the app’s inability to effectively control shuffle mode and repeat mode I’m not sure if I’m the only one with this issue, but it’s been a problem for as long as I can remember. If I’m listening to an album and want to listen to it in order, I obviously want to turn off shuffle mode. But if I’ve just been listening to a playlist on shuffle, there’s about a 50/50 chance shuffle mode will actually stay off when I press the button to turn it off. Sometimes I’ll try closing the app and reopening to retry playing the album, but that also often doesn’t work. And the problem exists reciprocally too (if I’m listening to an album in order then want to switch to shuffling a playlist, I’ll hit “Shuffle Play” and the app will start the playlist at a random song but then play it in order, no matter how many times I try to turn shuffle mode on). My opinion of this app started at 5 stars, then the issue became very noticeable and my rating went down to 4 stars. Now, I experience this issue multiple times per week (sometimes multiple times per day), so I can’t give the app more than 3 stars. I still use it religiously and love my playlists and all the other features, but this is a significant part of the listening experience that the app should be doing much better.

    Spotify is really useful, i just think that there should be some quality of life improvements, like being able to select multiple songs at once to add to a playlist, and to be able to add songs to multiple playlists at once. I also think that the algorithm that is used needs to be improved, because i haven't listened to Ed Sheeran in years, so i don't want to listen to his new albums.
  • Free experience, I like it but… Jul 29, 2021

    By Rojiace5
    After using the app for a month I was impressed that I was able to pick the songs that I wanted to listen to as well as the albums and podcasts. However, since I haven’t purchased anything to lose a majority of functions such as picking individual songs that I would love to start listening to instead being treated to something entirely different from the song I picked is frustrating, cause what is the point of liking songs if I am unable to listen to those songs, because I haven’t gotten premium. I don’t mind listen to ads if it gets me to the song I want to listen to or skip a song that I don’t want to listen to then slowly transitions into more songs. This makes the search function obsolete if I search for a song only to get something completely different from the song I wanted. Or look for an album that I want to listen to only to not listen to the whole album. Though picking specific podcast episodes seems to function the way the whole app should. If you want this for free, there are a lot of issues that I found makes it hard to find what you want to listen to or pick out specific songs that you want making liked songs unimportant if you can’t listen to them at a later time. Which is a shame cause the first time I downloaded it, really showed how amazing it is.
  • 3 Simple Fixes to Get Back to 5 Stars Jul 3, 2019

    By aproctor8
    1. You need to include an alphabetical quick scroll on the right-hand side of all of your lists, whether it’s your list of playlists, your Artist Library, or inside an actual playlist looking at songs. No one has the time to swipe for 30 seconds to the bottom of their library when they want to listen to The Who. A quick scroll has been a standard on every music app for years now. Get with the times! 2. The artist library page needs a royal update. Or retro-date, rather. I had an older version of the app until yesterday where all artists whose music you had saved into your library displayed on the same library in a neat, clean fashion, regardless of whether or not you Follow them. Now you can only neatly organize those artists whom you Follow, and the rest are left in this awkward, disorganized list of artists with a big “Follow” button next to it. We know what you’re doing guys. If we want to follow an artist, we will. For now, just let us organize our artist library in a straightforward fashion. 3. Another retro-date: put back the option to view your Songs Library. Sometimes you just wanna shuffle your songs. Yeah, the “Liked Songs” playlist is there, and that’s cool and all, but it’s not intuitive when you have “Playlists” and “Artists” listed up top. Put it back.

    I can give more stars to this app. However, I constantly like music on the app because I am hoping that it can personalize a playlist for me in my daily playlist, but it didn't. Also, it has been frequent that the app -- both on laptop and on my phone, stops playing even if the internet is stable. And I wish there were updates that can allow users to comment on podcasts 😭

    By Cartoonerr
    The update is terrible. I don't even know where to begin. 1: it adds songs to your playlist without your permission if your playlist doesn't have fifteen songs. Theres no option to disable this. 2: the ads are way too much. Three to sometimes even fifteen minutes of JUST ads. 3: the "suggested songs" feature. When you click on a song, it plays different suggested songs instead. If you add the song to your playlist, it does add the right song to the playlist. And those are ONLY three.

    Why do I always have to redownload my songs after restarting my phone? It's such a huge hassle especially when I'm outside the house. And please, fix your notification options. When i am not playing any song the music notification stays on my notification bar. Its annoying. Almost every bug in your app is annoying. Find at least a solution to fix it. We're paying for good features. If your gonna give me a buggy app we might as well stop the subscription.

    By Chris Reese
    This app sucks. It is nice to forward through ads. But listening to it through Bluetooth while cutting grass or something, it stops a lot. You have to pull your phone out, unlock it, and push to play. YouTube doesn't do that. Also the video stops working if connected to vehicle, even if stopped for lunch. I don't have pandora or any other music app other then YouTube Music and never have these issues with that app.
  • Sep 14, 2021

    By Andrew Kelly
    (NEW) Whenever I open the app and hit play (playing from where I left off in liked songs, which is sorted alphabetically) it constantly goes to the same song next which 1: isn't in ABC order and then plays the entire album (which again, isn't in ABC order...) I can't stand hearing the same few songs every time I want to play music. Any reason why this is glitching? Deleted my cache and data to try to fix it but no matter what, it will go from any letter to that one song then follow the album.
  • trouble with the app Aug 13, 2021

    By soomxii
    So to get started I’ve had this app since 9th grade and not even when I had my iPhone 6 Plus did it give me issues like the app not working for me. Currently I have the iPhone 12 Pro But in the past couple of days I can’t use it at all, meaning I can’t scroll/interact with the app. I can’t choose a playlist, I can’t search for a song, I can’t play a song. I’ve done everything that I’ve seen online, tried logging out well the app doesn’t respond, so I did the best next thing which was uninstalled. I uninstalled the app and proceeded to log in again it work and I was able to play a song, but just 15 seconds of the song before it stopped and the app went unresponsive like it previously was. I turned off my phone I thought that would help, when I turned it back on and tried using the app it was the same thing. I ended up resetting my phone, entering my iCloud and dealing with all of the starting “new” for the app to not work. Please can a developer help me fix the issue or at least advice me on what to do next? I seriously love the app, but if I can’t get it to work I will have to cancel my subscription for it and get Apple Music instead because listening to music is one of the things I do the most. I seriously only use this app for music streaming so I’d be so sad having to give it up just for that. :’(

No updates to my settings on Spotify or my phone have been made. All settings give it permission to run in the background on all battery optimization modes.

I used to like that when if on the "Your Library" tab you could click on a recently played artist or just an artist from the "Artists" tab and it would take you only to the songs you saved from them, but then if you clicked on them from the "Home" tab it would take you to their main profile page. Now it takes you to their main page even if you click on the artist from the library tab. It's extremely inconvenient, I would like to listen to only the songs I have saved from an artist not all of them. Before the update at least we had the choice. And as dramatic as this sound I have to agree with other people, it really IS enough to make me want to delete the app because of how inconvenient it has actually become to listen to my saved songs. Also the layout is just kinda weird. Well not weird but the one before was definitely better. It had your recently played artists or albums or whatever it is you listen to. And now it's not really like that anymore. Now you gotta go to them from the "Home" tab. I won't lie, it doesn't bother me as much as the first thing I mentioned (PLS CHANGE THAT BACK), but it's for sure something I wouldn't mind if y'all brought back.
  • Now is unnecessarily complex Mar 2, 2019

    By Corndog3135
    The number one thing I hate about this update is the fact that anytime I pick a song, shuffle turns off. It's literally a joke that I have to turn it on every time I pick a new song. What confuses me is the fact that repeat stays on when shuffle turns off. That needs to be fixed. Another thing is the fact that you can't hide the recommended songs that are at the bottom of each playlist. Which tends to always have the same songs on it. Which is quite annoying. Another thing is that when you search for something on a playlist, you cannot slide to the right to add to queue anymore. Which is a major time consumer now. A guy should be able to add to queue in a lot faster time than having to click song options, scroll down, and add to queue, because if there's multiple songs you'd like to add, it should take 10 seconds to add 10 songs. Not 10 seconds to add just one song. One more topic is that I have to go through multiple screens just to go to queue. Whom ever had that idea is considerably unintelligent. It used to be so simple and easy to use. Now it's like you're playing a intelligence and patience game with every user. With this new update, many things became very unnecessarily complex. My patience with this app is going quickly. I hope you fix these format issues.
  • My music suddenly stops playing and ads Dec 8, 2020

    By Susanne Martinez
    I’ve been having this issue for awhile and it’s getting on my nerves. Sometimes when I’m listening to my music, it just suddenly stops playing and when I go back to play it again, it plays from the beginning. It’ll suddenly stop playing half way through the song and when I go back to press play again, the music starts from the beginning. It’s been doing that for about a few months now and at first I thought it was maybe my headphones, but just today I wasn’t using them and the music stopped again. I’m getting really tired of this happening. Also, when it does stop and goes to the beginning, I just skip to the next song on my playlist, but then again, it does the same thing to the next song. I want this to stop! It’s super annoying and I just want to listen to my music without any problems. Also, when ads pop up, it gives you the option to skip them and go straight to your music. I always skip them because, to be honest, your ads are super annoying. I just close out of the app and go back in it again to play music. However, sometimes when I do skip the ads, it still plays an ad. Like, it SUPER ANNOYING and I’m getting sick of it. It gives you the option and you decide to play it anyway. Not cool. Please get back to me ASAP!
  • Save songs for premium Jun 19, 2019

    By Juliana corner
    I have a premium account and the new update changed the “saved songs” into “liked songs”. I don’t listen to a certain playlist I listen to my saved songs but now since the update songs that Iv had “saved” or “liked” before show that they have not been like either when you swipe left or actually go on the song and click the green heart. But it still shows up in my “liked music”. This makes me incredibly confused because I’m unsure if I actually have the song saved or not. Also there is no bar on the side of the screen that shows the letters in which you can find the song alphabetically which there was earlier when “liked songs” was “saved songs” this makes it difficult to find certain songs, because I can’t just go down to the letter anymore. Also with the shuffle on my “liked songs”, if my filter is on to sort by title and I click “shuffle play” usually the same four songs play. I really thing the shuffling algorithm needs to be fixed because I’m not enjoying the other songs I want to listen on my “liked songs”. Moral of this is that this new update didn’t fix anything about the app but made it harder to use now that “liked songs” is treated as a regular play list and not songs that I have saved.

    I've had various crashes on the app, music will play when you don't want it to, and a lot of issues with the app being slow or taking too long to close, I just changed phones so that could be the case or it could be an update, I'm not sure, but I've had a lot more problems within 1 month than I have over my 5 years of use, if you aren't experiencing this, app is 5 stars, I've never had problems with it until recently, but yeah, just wanted to voice my frustrations.

    This should not be listed as a free app. Unless you pay money, this app is useless and infuriating. On the PC, I've composed playlists of the songs that I want to listen to and have no problem doing so. On this app, Spotify decides that it knows what you should listen to instead, and you can only skip a limited number of terrible songs before it tells you to spend money. So I can't choose what I listen to, and can't even skip over songs I hate. Utter garbage.

    Why can't I fast forward from the lock screen anymore? And why am I hearing more ads, even though I pay for a premium membership? This is complete BS. Taking away the ability to easily skip ads is a complete and utter dick move. I pay to not hear ads, if you are going to make it so I can't skip them, then sayonara. This needs to be fixed real effing fast, or I am gone.

    Got an email 09/12 that my free trial would end 09/14. I followed the links and cancelled the subscription effective 09/14. Today, 09/15, they charged me for Premium. With no "contact us" info on the site, I chatted with a bot who transferred me to a human who said I had been refunded already. I just have to wait for it to process. Meanwhile the money they took was for a prescription. I have to wait to get my meds. I budget to the penny on a VA disability fixed-income. This threw it all off. 👎

    For the past couple of months this app just won't start I have cleared my cache and updated the app and it's still not working. I PAY for your service to use when I need it. I've contacted customer service twice and heard NOTHING back. Been a member for nearly 10 years and this is rubbish service not to reply to your customers when your app literally isn't working!!! And I made the effort to contact you privately first. I'd appreciate a refund and customers... I'd think twice.

    From my experience you can't select only one specific song to play(at least without premium) so when I want to listen to a specific song from an artist I have to listen to the other songs of the same artist or make a playlist where you will be able to listen to it once because Spotify adds random songs on the playlist that YOU made (over all unfriendly towards non-premium users)
  • what’s with the new way of categorizing saved music? Jul 3, 2019

    By tessssssssssssssssssssss
    when i save an individual song, i still want that song to be FINDABLE. if i wanted to put it into a playlist with thousands of songs, id do that. but with the previous versions of the app, you could find ANY saved album under the albums category. even if i just have one or two songs saved from an album, i want it to be there! because otherwise it’s just lost in a sea of thousands of individually saved songs. with the previous versions, you could filter out entire albums if you CHOSE to, but now that’s the default. i have no clue why yall keep making updates that antagonize your loyal users. it’s one thing to change up the design or add cool new features or fix existing issues, but it’s another to just remove an entire means of categorizing music??? and, for what reason? out of an assumption that people who save individual songs only want to listen to their music on shuffle, and never would want to actually be able to find their liked songs in a functional way? it’s stupid. please make it so that all liked music is represented under the albums category again, even if the entire album isn’t saved. it’s really annoying to see HUNDREDS of albums disappear from that category just because i only saved some songs from them.
  • iPhone XR Update is horrible Mar 15, 2019

    By John1681
    Last week, the XR received an update that essentially broke the experience for me. All of my saved artists are no longer there, and my “Artists” tab only shows artists I’ve “followed,” and takes me to the artists’ page and not the albums or songs I have saved. The interface is completely different. I chatted on their website with support for over two hours, only to have the person tell me that the feature I have used every day for years never existed . This is a basic function since the inception of the MP3 player. I have been a premium subscriber for more than 5 years, and this has made me seriously consider other streaming services. I have over 10,000 songs that I’ve saved or “liked” over the years, and to only be able to sort by album or song is terrible. Not to mention, BEFORE the update, it was a pain to navigate the Artists page because there is no scroll bar or alphabet to the side to help you navigate - you would have to scroll past hundreds of artists to get to the one you wanted if you wanted to listen to a band that started with “T.” This doesn’t seem to be a problem on any other iPhones, but the latest update affected my desktop app on my work computer, as well. When this is fixed, I’d gladly adjust my review back to 5 stars.
  • It’s a great app, but the update is making me angry! Apr 21, 2019

    By Puyopie :3
    The idea of the app is great, but... I have 3 complaints. The first would be that it’s excruciatingly irritating when I just want to listen to a few specific songs on a little playlist, and then it automatically adds some songs I don’t want to listen to. I mean, seriously?! I had no freaking complaints at all about the app before this. I just want to be able to listen to exactly what I want, exactly when I want to. I understand that maybe some people don’t find this very annoying, but, I do. So, if you made it to where you could turn off the automatically adding songs in settings, then, that would be wonderful. My second complaint is that only having shuffle play vexes me. I just want to listen to whatever I want and not be bothered by anything else (besides ads, I will tolerate those and I know that you need them in order to make money). Anything else as in songs I don’t want to hear. My third and final complaint is that I miss being able to play 1 song over and over again. That’s all I’ve got. And, my rating might seem a little harsh for something so trivial, but, that’s just how annoyed I am about this. So, if you could just please fix all of this in your next update, that would be much appreciated!
  • Hard to listen to the song you want Jun 12, 2020

    By J.splat
    So I decided to get the app and use the free version and it worked fine on my computer but than I tried it on my phone and it was bad. First I wanted to listen to music so I listened to my library with an album and I kept skipping until my song but for some stupid reason it only lets you skip music 6 times unless you get a member ship (continue reading to know why I think they did this willingly) and it also didn’t let you choose any specific song. So I than got to my song after a song I really didn’t like and than after that song I finally got to listen to the song I wanted and after that it played a song not even from the album and I wasn’t able to skip it because I used up all my 6 skips (that’s why I think they made to skip over 6 songs using a membership (because they make you have to skip those kind of songs through a paywall)) so I realized it was on shuffle so I searched up how to turn it off because I couldn’t find it and when I searched it up it told me to click a certain button but it wasn’t there so I deleted the app. Thanks for reading this and hopefully updating (the app at least) and I can bump up the score too at least a 4.
