I Use genius at least 4 times a week. Probably one of my most used apps other than the usual social media outlets. Like most apps, it constantly asks me to write a review. And I constantly ignore. But today I thought about it, and I can't think of another app that deserves this review as much as Genius. I've used it for years, it almost never lets me down. Great for digging deeper into music, finding out how many people wrote song, who wrote a song. Sometimes you find those random people, click on them, and find out they wrote a ton of other songs you love. That's one of my favorite parts of the app. Great app. No complaints. Some improvement ideas, but a wise man told me never give up intellectual property for free!
If you are employed at Genius, read this!!!
I love Genius but I gave the app a 1-star review, what gives? The reason is simple: whenever I tap on a given album's [Tracklist + Cover Art] it directs me to a tracklist, so far so good... excellent work Genius! HOWEVER, when I click on any of the linked songs on the track list, it sends me to the lyrics page of the first song on the album EVERY TIME no matter if I click on the second song or the 11th song of the album. This happens with every album tracklist on the app, and it's been an issue for a minute now. As you would expect, I cannot function in society due to this app bug. I've become a hermit, cradling myself in the corner of my room hoping for the App Store notification to arrive that would indicate that my extremely pressing and debilitating (first-world) problem has been resolved. Thank you for your time. Bless up.
The only issues I have with the app are that sometimes when I first open it, it can take up to 30 seconds before everything is loaded & I can use it. I really like the fact that it sometimes shows what song you're listening to (though not every time? I don't know what causes it to work/not work). Also, I like that there is the button to figure out what you're listening to, though sometimes this actually turns off whatever I'm listening to & I can't get it to work.
Overall, I'm very thankful for this app and impressed by it!
