Ratings and Reviews
App stands test of time
CloudBeats has greatly expanded in both functionality and scope since its early days when it only supported OneDrive (then known as SkyDrive). The developer (Roman, IIRC) soon added the other well-known Cloud repositories to the app, along with variable speed playback and other features needed for audiobook/podcast playback, among others. All without requesting an extra cent through IAPs or new versions, as seems common with developers now. That being said, the maturity of iPhone and the saturated market make lifetime app licenses seem like a shortsighted idea that have likely contributed to the cesspool of abandonware. I’d much rather pay a patronage than have the developer discontinue an app because it ceased to be personally or economically viable.
With that out of the way, I have one enhancement suggestion and I’m not sure if it’s viable. There’s an option for local cloud but can this be used or repurposed to use an SMB login to a local router and link to a folder of attached storage or its media server?
I must say that I like this app. I have used GoPlayer, Cloud Music (I think that’s the name of it), and another app—which escapes me at the moment. CloudBeats is the best one so far (at least for me). One of the coolest features that neither of the other apps possessed is the way the app lists your albums. It reads the metadata better (I think) than other apps. I have 6 albums if 2Pac’s music; not 50 because of the way CloudBeats reads the metadata. And, I would remiss if I did not mention the support you get from the developers. I originally requested a refund because the app was not syncing with Google Drive. I would get some error message. When I sent the developers an email requesting the refund, I received an email back with questions about what was actually going on. So, I tried again, and whatever the issues were, they were worked out. So far, I say great job! Keep up the good work! (However, as soon as I write positive reviews, then I start having problems...LOL. Go figure!)
BEST CLOUD PLAYING APP BY FAR
I have had, at one time, ALL of the music cloud playing apps, used them extensively, and can very accurately say that this app is by far, THE BEST CLOUD PLAYING APP!
It saves you tons of $$$$ by being able to store music on cloud space instead of overpriced and expensive iPhone/iPad internal memory. Just buy the cheapest iPhone and store your music in the cloud!! Look at the iPhone memory upgrades when buying a new iPhone.
The app is very intuitive and easy to use, sounds frigging fantastic, and you are only limited by the amount of free cloud space that you sign-up (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.).
I have had this app since the first week it came out, thought I might do better by trying other apps, but always come running back to Cloudbeats. It even works fantastic via Bluetooth devices (in my case, headphones and large Bose speaker). If there is ever an issue when you will not have access to a cell signal, then just temporarily save your music (physically) to the app - but that is rare (for me) because I almost always have access to cell or WIFI.
Also, I have to say, I am really thankful to the developer since the app has undergone many updates and great improvements. They have NEVER dumped the app (and their loyal customers who bought it) to come out with a “new” app to sell, instead of just releasing an update. Cloudbeat - that has been noticed AND APPRECIATED.
