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.
Wherever you are. Whatever you’re doing. The SoundCloud app lets you hear more.
More hip hop. More rock. More electronic. More classical. More house, jazz, audiobooks, sports…

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
