My music safe spot
I've used this website since 2008 and finally got an iPhone so I decided this would be my first app purchase. I could write a book about why this is the best music site but I'll hold off on that for now;). The UI for this app is really perfect. It's very simple to use and just works very smoothly. The only real thing that could make it better is if they would make an option to create more than 3 playlists and also the search isn't the best. But I think I'm saying that because Google and Microsoft have spoiled the world with their search engines. If you use this website at all and enjoy it you should really consider spending the 3.99 and get this app. They are a small team making an app that has shaped the music industry especially for the smaller bands out in the world.
Great app overall just 1 suggestion on shuffle
Great app overall. Only complaint is shuffle/random setting when playing my favorites seems to only play songs liked in the last 2 or 3 months perhaps?
Basically I hit next 30 or 40 times & have seen the same song 4 or 5 times. Not really "random" and I could just as easily scroll over these recent 30-40 songs I've liked. Shuffle should select songs from a year or 2 ago and then the app would perfect! I want random to truly be random!
Offline mode is a blessing 🙌
Just forget about music subscription services. This app gives you a great selection on demand without ads and no monthly fees. The offline mode is hidden and is very barebones but it still does a fantastic job. Album premiere on my phone makes car rides so much more to look forward to.
