Customer Reviews

No more crashes, still freezes sometimes

The recent updates of the app seem to have made the app a lot better. However, sometimes when you're not in the app but still listening to music, and try to skip something the music stops playing completely.
Also, I wish we could make playlists within the app instead of just on the website

everything was good, until the fire nation attacked

8tracks WAS the only app I went to for listening to music as it had a huuuge variety and the fact that the playlists were fanmade was awesome! But, now that the skips are down I'm really turned off. A lot of other people are complaining about them as well, and I genuinely don't understand why you would limit skips like this. It's really disappointing; now I mostly use Songza and don't feel like dealing with the app anymore. [Bring Me To Life playing softly in the distance via a better music app]


I love 8tracks. I've used the site for years and will continue to do so. However, this app drives me insane. I constantly have the issue of an ad (audio only) playing in the middle of a song and again multiple times after that (same ad). The songs do not pause and the ads simply play over the music. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it did nothing. This happens every single time I use the app. Aside from this issue, it's a fine app.
