Customer Reviews

I remember the good old days

For about four years Hype Machine was one of my top three iPhone apps. Recently, however, its functionality has plummeted. I don't have an issue with ads, but the fact that it stops playing between every single song so it can buffer (or something?) is absolutely infuriating. I used to be able to listen to my favorite songs continuously for an entire ride, and now I have to open the app between almost every song to get it playing again. I've almost stopped using the app entirely, and if I can find all of my saved tracks elsewhere, I won't ever use it again.

Long time user.. what happened?

OMG, recent version is terrible!

So I'm listening to Popular songs, working my way through the list, deciding which ones to favorite. Go eat lunch, get back in my car and try to continue, but NO... I'm taken to the home screen and I've totally lost my position in the list.

So, I look for last Loved song in the list, but guess what? The LOVE indicators don't show in the list. You have to open up a song to see if you've loved it. SHEESH authors, do you guys even use this app?

Developers: Don't destroy this gem of an app!

One the few apps I've ever been happy to pay for but...times be changing.
There are many loyal subscribers of hype machine...please bring back the offline tracks mode for us. I understand the ads move but granted most people (including yours sincerely) paid for this app, I can see their dismay!

But bring back offline mode...I don't know what to do with myself without it!
