PRAISE FOR SOUNDCLOUD
“SoundCloud is focused on building out a massive trove of content, weaving it all into the Web and making it easier to share. The “YouTube for audio” analogy looks increasingly apt, especially if its metrics continue to shoot skyward.” - ReadWrite
“SoundCloud is a sharing machine. Remember the early days of audio online — when you had to download the Real Player or Windows Media Player to listen? The days of downloading before listening are over.” - USA Today
“It's an evolution of audio's most vital self-service creation and discovery platform, music's best analogue to Twitter, YouTube, and Kindle Direct Publishing. It's not just finding or sharing songs or podcasts or spoken-word readings your friends may be listening to — it's finding and sharing the people who make those recordings, too.” - The Verge

What's New in Version 3.9.1
The best way to hear music & audio on the go, now on your wrist!
Update to get SoundCloud for Apple Watch.
Soundcloud is transitioning. It is transitioning from a place where musicians, and artist can interact with their friends, fans, and peers into a place for the average joe to listen to music. This app gloats about the most basic features possible while anything other than; play, pause, skip, follow, and like cannot be done in the app. As a person who likes to interact with my fans and peers I find this app useless. Good thing the website still works on a mobile phone right? Nope! The mobile website literally shows you the top pending tracks and a link to get the app in the AppStore. And you also can't use the desktop version on an iPhone. Even if you can get it pulled up, which is quite the feat, it still is hardly compatible with the screen. Guess I'll just log in on my computer when I get back from whatever I may be doing. It's really unfortunate that the standard for online music based social media doesn't care that it's really only worth anything for somebody at home with their computer.
I absolutely ADORED sound cloud on mobile. It's like Pandora, but you can create playlists of exactly what you want (without Pandora guessing what you want), repost songs, and search for a specific song and not have to wait through 5 or 6 "related songs to get to the one you actually want.
However, since the update soundcloud doesn't even load up anymore. I've been waiting for almost an hour now, still on the logo covered loading screen. If the developers are reading this, please fix it. I'm going to delete then re-download the app, which is a pain because of all the playlists I have saved on it. I hope that will fix the problem, but for some reason I think not.
P.S. I have an iphone 4, I don't know if that's important, just letting you know this might be an isolated case.
I (No Longer) ❤ Soundcloud
UPDATE: Newest version won't even open. Crashes every time. Don't know why I even care anymore, this app is a joke. It's been over a year since they crippled it and somehow it's getting WORSE, which I didn't think was possible. So, uh, good job I guess?
UPDATE: Oh, yay. Playlists. Would you guys please add some real functionality back into the app? Anything? Even just the ability to see any song's play count and likes at the same time?? Because that doesn't happen right now you know. The shoddiness, worthlessness and inconsistency of this app is ludicrous. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for deforming it this badly.
UPDATE: Still the worst.
UPDATE: They crippled it. The app is currently pretty but completely worthless.
PREVIOUS REVIEW: This app is excellent. It's one of my favorite music apps and I frequently get lost for hours exploring artists' songs that I've never heard and probably wouldn't have if it weren't for this app.
A few requests!
- The ability to make your own playlists within the app
- The ability to download tracks straight to your iphone (when artists have downloads enabled on the track, of course!)
- A quick way to switch between your Soundcloud accounts, like they have built in to the Twitter app.
Thank you for this amazing app and keep up the amazing work!!
