Was Excellent, Needs to Get Better

I’m not sure if anyone else has experienced the extremely slow lag whenever you open the app while listening to a song? It’s almost as if it doesn’t register tapping within the app, either it takes a couple minutes to register or crashes, and I’ve been waiting for an update to fix this for over a month. Other than this functionality issues, the app should really have lyric editing and metadata editing features that are included on the website. These key components would help add convenience to contributors on the go without needing access to a compute, which quite frankly should’ve been added quite a while ago. Other than the basic speed issue and the added features, still a great app with loads of excellent aspects that just need some rework :^)


This app is a utterly useless it runs incredibly slow takes a second for whatever is on the home/ recommended page to load then only responds to any other commands after that has finished loaded when I search a song and click on it the lyrics take forever to load basically I think it's a necessity of an app but it needs to be faster and I feel as if genius pays too much mind too the videos and all the supplements of the good stuff it has what most people really use it for are lyrics and their corresponding explanation I still have this app because I am hoping an update will fix it but whenever I need to find lyrics and meanings I Google it on the Google app and it loads instantly no lag no delay if the website loads faster and is more functioning than the company's app then there's a problem

Can’t even search songs

Second I click on a song or find it from the app listening it will glitch out and i can’t do anything. I have to shut down the app completely multiple times for it even go back to the main screen. Somehow when it freezes it’ll literally just be like a picture of my phone when it was on that screen. If I had WiFi on and turn it off, WiFi will be over lapping my LTE symbol when I go back to the frozen app even though I don’t have WiFi on. lyrics won’t load, description won’t load, name of song and album art won’t load half the time. I love genius as a site but fix your app because it’s broken.
