Fantastic for Music!
I couldn't be happier with this app. I have a giant library of MP3s that were such a pain to import into my music library and sync with iTunes every time I wanted to add or remove any, and this app elegantly replaces that entire process. Now you sign into a Google Drive account after installing the app, then just throw the MP3s into Drive and tell Cloud Beats which folder they're in, and BOOM! All your music is now immediately available.
Data usage can be an issue if you're not on a wireless network, but you can prepare some tracks to be available offline if you know when you're going to be out and about. Coupled with the option to only play offline tracks, this makes it much easier to avoid excessive data usage.
The reviews asking for the ability to skip around within a track to make podcasts more accessible are pretty valid though. From what I can tell, the only way to do that is to have the phone unlocked and the app open, which is probably not how you'll be listening to a podcast.
Overall, I could not recommend this app highly enough. If you want more options for listening to a personal music library that isn't stored on iTunes, you can't do much better than Cloud Beats.
Solves a glaring problem, could be better
It needs skip-back and skip-forward buttons. I do love this app, using it mostly for long-form recordings like lectures. That's why it needs jump-back and jump-forward controls, like all the podcast players have. It may not be an issu for music, but try to roll back 30 sec in a 2-hour lecture file, while out jogging, and you'll quickly see the utility of this hoped-for feature addition. I love that it eliminates the need to use horrible iTunes to get audio files into your phone, but the playback features could use some love.
By far my favorite APP... Ever!
I use this everyday and when I am on wifi there is no concern with data usage. Data usage is minimal outside of wifi for a half hour here at the gym, or hour there on the bus but definitely keep track of usage. Stylish and easy to use, with cover art for albums displayed in app and on lock screen. My only minor complaint is that it isn't compatible with older .wmv music files.
