PRAISE FOR SOUNDCLOUD
“Once you find an artist you like on SoundCloud, you can then see which songs that artist likes and get lost in a rabbit hole of music awesomeness. This kind of musical serendipity is very specific to SoundCloud because of the platform’s unique content.” - TechCrunch, Alex Mozaed
“SoundCloud is a great place for finding new music from emerging artists.” - The Next Web, Owen Williams
“SoundCloud Go is a big move for the company, which built its business by allowing artists to upload their music and share it with fans on social media and blogs. Acts like Drake, Lily Allen, Kanye West and Miley Cyrus have used it to premiere songs, or share works in progress. It has established the Berlin-based company as an influential player in the music industry, especially in the dance music genre.” - Mark Savage, BBC News

What's New in Version 4.14.0
Performance improvements and bug fixes.
Recent issues with reliability
The app is minimal compared to other sophisticated music applications. You have access to your tracks, explore new tracks using suggested stations and those created by Soundcloud based on each track. Aside from the overall outdated search engine which can barely handle any kind of sophisticated search, the mobile application itself carries its own issues:
1. You don't have access to comments
2. You don't have the ability to set a track to repeat
3. It turns off almost 10% of times that I use the app on iphone 6
4. It doesn't learn from you behavior regarding a certain track to recommend better variety of songs, except from simple patterns such as the number of times you have listened to a certain track. For example, you cannot expect you face a song less after you have repeatedly passed it to the next song.
This should be called the soundcloud player, bc all it does is play music from soundcloud. If all you want to do is use this app to play an occasional track then you'll be happy. But if you like the rest of us who live soundcloud bc of playlists, comments, related tracks, other users' likes, ect. then prepare to be very very disappointed. This app used to be a little bit better, allowing the user access to some of the functionality available online but has been since striped of functionality, skinned with a moderately confusing UI that lacks access to just about everything useful.. Overall a very glitchy, buggy app that seems to only allow you to see maybe 2% of the content you'd like to access. Wish someone made a great 3rd party soundcloud app so I didn't have so suffer through using this. It really blows me away that soundcloud is so widely used and even after selling out, they still have one of the worst apps in existence.
Why are you forcing people to download?
I would give zero stars, but that's not possible so one star will have to do. What happened to Facebook integration, embedding, and the mobile site? You ditched it all for a more "seamless experience" on your app? What about people who never use SoundCloud, have no idea what it is, or even know how to download an app? Many of those people who may have listened to creator's music, now may not because you've made it much more inconvenient for anyone to access the one thing they come for- THE MUSIC. Seriously, why get rid of perfectly good and functional things? How much money are you making from this app? Must be a lot to alienate people like this. Only downloading this because I'm forced to in order to listen to a friend's music. Used to be a fan, but this is ridiculous. Corporate greed conquers all, I suppose.
