Ratings and Reviews
Visual commercials ruined this app
Basically the new visual commercials ruined this app for me. I used to love this app and use it every single time I ran. Good song mixes that keep me motivated. The ads were kind of annoying but it was fine bc I wasn’t paying for premium. But now these visual ads will play legitimately every 5 seconds. If I push any button on the screen (play, pause, back literally anything) the ad will play. Even if it played legit one second ago. And almost every time the ad plays it causes the app to freeze so I have to exit the app to get back to the music. So it’s virtually pointless to use if you’re running unless you want to constantly be on your phone closing and opening the app constantly while attempting to run.
Great... when it works
I love this app in theory and overall it has a decent user interface. However, I have yet to get through a workout without the app failing- music cuts out all the time but it shows it as playing, it’s slow to respond and freezes, etc. Very frustrating to be well into a run and have the music suddenly cut out and lose my rhythm because I’m fussing with the app. It’s not a network or headphone issue either- this happens to me in multiple locations, different headphones, both on and off WiFi networks. Really wish I hadn’t accidentally purchased the upgrade account (I picked up my phone and apparently my finger hit the pop up ad) because it’s actually worse now than before on the free version, but I can’t figure out how to get a refund.
They don’t want to know the problems
This app is littered with bugs in fact it’s infested. Even more alarming is the fact that the app contains no user support. So here are some of the issues you decide if it’s worth your effort.
-Heart rate pairing only works for specific device.
-Beats per minute tempo slows or speeds that music up to undesirable listening experience
-Music search is limited and does not do wide gamut search.
-Finding beats per minute music is excruciatingly difficult
-total on music catalog is limited
-if you upgrade your phone and reinstall the back up or just do a fresh install on your current phone, the app get stuck in a splash screen start up with no resolution other than deleting it and trying to remember your login credentials
-navigation is horrible especially if you’re tired during your exercise!! Require surgical precision to hit the right section of the selection area. If you’re exhausted you don’t have time for that.
Until they upgrade and fix these issues I wouldn’t bother downloading this app. It gets to stars for playing music.
