I already have pandora.
This app was once an absolute godsend for me. I don't have enough room on my phone for my music and so an application that lets me upload my entire library and listen to it online or even download select albums for offline listening in an easy to use format is perfect for my needs, but now everything is going downhill, and incredibly quickly. I didn't like the new design changes a few updates back, but that's petty and I didn't let it annoy me. Now there's the radio nonsense. I don't have this app for radio stations, I have this app because pandora already doesn't suit my needs. No one asked for radio. Not once. Then there's the ads overtop the cover art. And now I'm listening to my own music and I'm told I'm out of skips? I'm not allowed to skip my own music that I've paid for? Limited skipping makes sense with the radio but I should be allowed to skip through when it's my own music that I've uploaded myself. This app was once amazing and now I'm looking for an entirely new service because I'm done. This is garbage.
Still works but annoying ads
Obviously the radio station support now adds the need for ads. But if you don't use the radio station feature you still have to have it, including the ugly ads throughout. Also, if you search you don't get your music, you get their stations. Lastly, listen now puts their stations at the top. All these should only be there for those that use the radio station. Perhaps a setting to remove all the radio related stuff. Otherwise if you only use the app for your own music (such as myself) it's in the way and ugly.
At least add an option for the app to open to "my library" instead of listen now.
Used to be such a good app. Now I have to consider the Paid service of apple music. Meh.
Much better now (thank you!) but one little TEENSY-WEENSY PROBLEM....
I'm glad that the playback issues I had in the past have finally been fixed, but one problem remains. It's not the worst part of this app, but it's not the best, either. The "Songs" section only lists songs starting with the letter A. No other letter whatsoever. Just A. Google, if you're reading this, please fix this teensy-weensy error. Thank you. Until then, 3 stars.
