Customer Reviews

best app on my phone

While usually hesitant to pay for an app, this is the best app I've ever had on my phone. It's fast, easy to navigate, great favoriting features. One review states there's no way to skip to parts of songs - in fact this app has one of the most creative and functional song scanning implementations using an on screen scroll wheel similar to the old iPods once the cover art it tapped. The offline mode was completely unexpected but so welcome when I was abroad. I've recommended this app to 5 of my friends and all have downloaded and later told me it is there new go to way of finding new music and listening. If you are debating buying, I assure you this app is far superior to the website and incredibly well designed.

Truly an achievement.

You people have seriously made history in my book. $3 up front, and not a penny more. I cannot believe that I have an app that I use THIS FREQUENTLY, and not have to pay a subscription, or deal with stupid adds that just annoy the heck out of me. I appreciate what you have done, and I sincerely want to thank you. This app works flawlessly. I use it an insane amount (I'm the sound guy at a church, and my music is ON POINT because of this app) I have gotten at least 10/11 of the people who listen to my music on a weekly basis to download this app because the HAVE to know where I find these alternative underground songs. Keep on rocking hypem. I've been a member since 2010, and I never plan on stopping using this machine!

Why can't I give this 10 stars!!!

This app has come a long way since its humble beginnings. I'm so impressed and would buy this app over and over again. It's literally my front page goto music app, and I wouldn't want it any other way. <3 thank you hypem team! And keep up the good work!
Only wish that you'd creat a proper iPad version. <3 still deserves 10 stars tho.
