PRAISE FOR SOUNDCLOUD
“SoundCloud is focused on building out a massive trove of content, weaving it all into the Web and making it easier to share. The “YouTube for audio” analogy looks increasingly apt, especially if its metrics continue to shoot skyward.” - ReadWrite
“SoundCloud is a sharing machine. Remember the early days of audio online — when you had to download the Real Player or Windows Media Player to listen? The days of downloading before listening are over.” - USA Today
“It's an evolution of audio's most vital self-service creation and discovery platform, music's best analogue to Twitter, YouTube, and Kindle Direct Publishing. It's not just finding or sharing songs or podcasts or spoken-word readings your friends may be listening to — it's finding and sharing the people who make those recordings, too.” - The Verge

Could be 5 star, but app is poor
I want to like Sound Cloud, really I do. But the user interface is just flat-out awful. On other podcast apps, subscribing and adding shows is completely intuitive. On Sound Cloud, I try to follow a sports talk show and can easily find it in the search results, but the podcast results for said program are always completely random. Sometimes I'm only offered 4 to 8 second sound bites from the show. Other times I'm shown podcast episodes from a couple of weeks ago, but nothing remotely current (and yes, I've checked and verified--the latest episodes have been uploaded and are available on other apps). Other times, the app just wheezes and staggers to a screeching halt before crashing.
I'm not a tech guy--at all--but I can tell you this: sometimes, less is more. I don't need fancy graphics or the ability to "share" my podcast choice with 500 of my closest friends--what I need is a search function that works, and an app that lets me download the show I want. Start with core functionality, and *then* worry about the window dressing. Please, Sound Cloud Developers--please. I beg you.
Used to love soundcloud but
I try to add new songs to my playlists but the new songs I add never even show up. I try to close the app and reopen it but it still says the same thing it says I have 5 tracks on my playlist but only shows 1 and only lets me play 1. It's very irritating and that bug should get fixed ASAP. Another thing is there should be a shuffle reposts/likes/playlists button because who likes picking out their songs every single time... It would be very helpful for us who use this app everyday. Also some new features should be added to the mobile app that we are only able to do on the computer, such as change profile picture, delete playlists, view who you are following/ view followers, etc. I used to love this app so much but I feel like some comments/suggestions are mostly ignored. Using the advice of someone who uses this app everyday can only help this app be even more successful :) thank you for your time and I hope to see these things happen in the future :)
I only have one beef with this app.
I like Soundcloud, a lot. Always have. I don't upload much, so I can't say anything about that aspect of it's usability, but I do listen to it often, and really discover many, many artists and DJs that I would have had no clue about. For those reasons - nothing but props. My beef, however, is that the mobile version on the iPad STILL doesn't always operate in landscape mode. It would seem like a small thing, just turning the iPad around to continue typing any text that I need to enter, but I use my iPad with a keyboard, which becomes useless in this regard. Really, it' about time that the developers fix this very small thing. It otherwise makes me not want to use the app with my iPad, and that's not fair, because I otherwise love the platform.
