What's New in Version 3.3.0
Thank you for using Genius. We've been hard at work making the app better for you. Here's what we've been up to:
- A better looking song view.
- More 3D Touch support.
- Improved "My Music" views.
- Bug fixes and other improvements.
Still pretty glitchy. It doesn't always give me the correct song when communicating with Apple Music. When I have bad service The app seems to take forever to load and eventually crashes in the end. The identified tab gets pretty annoying sometimes when I accidentally click it and it's not very stable when I try and cancel it often does not cancel. Maybe a relocation would be nice
Fabulous-- when not freezing
It was great to be able to listen to Alexander Hamilton and follow the lyrics and commentary, and initially I was delighted. But the app repeatedly froze and needed to be force quit, and then navigating back to the track on was on was not straightforward. I might have had an easier time using the Safari interface, which defeats the point of having an app.
Love it but now it needs work
I loved this app when it launched on the App Store. It has improved tremendously over time. But unfortunately I have noticed recent problems where the app will brick my phone and make me hard rest it. I have deleted and reinstalled twice.
