    "Music here, music there, music everywhere"


    Soundcloud's app is as fun and easy to use as ever. It's overflowing with beats fresh from the oven for every taste in music, and the material design is just sleek as can be, allowing you to seamlessly swap between searching for specific tracks/artists and browsing at random based on genre and related sounds. It's the very best of streaming music discovery brought to the palm of your hand.


    So much music that you won't find on other streaming services finds a home on SoundCloud - it's THE place for listening to everything before your friends do. The little player widget is minimal and perfect; the recording widget is cute for anyone looking to upload their own tracks.


    None at all. C'mon, the app costs nothing, and it's free of ads to boot. Give it a spin.

    Original review from Aug 12, 2014:

    SoundCloud is a fantastic streaming music service, and the app completely lives up to the high standards set by the homesite. No matter whether you're a techno freak, a metalhead, or a pop queen, SoundCloud has streaming stations for you, and all for free.

    Just like other streaming music services, SoundCloud lets you search by artist, genre, or keyword to find great tracks. Unlike Spotify, Beats, Deezer, and the like, SoundCloud includes direct uploads from artists, which means a much larger quantity of specialty tracks and remixes. I'm a house music fan myself, and this is definitely my service of choice for music discovery.

    Follow friends, artists, and trends to keep your finger on the pulse of what's hot. Create and share playlists. Play, pause, and skip conveniently from your lockscreen. Stream over wifi or 3G (but do be mindful of your data plan).

    Sound quality is super high. I've never had any issue smoothly streaming music over wifi. The design is gorgeous and intuitive too.

    If you can't find anything you love to listen to on SoundCloud, you might want to get your ears checked.

    Lacks many features and has some issues. The first podcast I just (tried to) listen to keeps getting stuck in a loop at the same point, over and over (restart doesn't help). The same podcast keeps starting to play while it is paused, without me pressing play. Makes me think "what the frick?"!
