Review from David Cook
I'll stick with google No album or song search feature in store. Player did not recognize and play any mp3s previously purchased and stored on device through Google playstore. Good ui and was very fast. Genres didn't have enough music for my tastes.
Keeps locking up. Thought this would be nice as it is integrated but every time I stop the playing. When I try to click play it just hangs and does nothing. Going back to old one. Will call unlimited plan.
Generally I like it, but... I don't know if something happened in the last updated, but now it will randomly stop playing partway through songs, sometimes multiple times. Also, it's as if the app no longer knows how to move on to the next song. If it isn't replaying the previous again, it just stops playing altogether. It's really pissing me off. Other wise it's a great app, but this is getting on my last nerve...
First, I like this app because it allows me to stream music as an Amazon Prime subscriber, and I can listen to all the music I've purchased through Amazon over the years. I don't like: there is no easy option (like on iTunes) to 'uncheck' a song that I don't want to hear play during shuffle. The only option I've found is to remove it from my library, which deletes it from my account and is as if I never purchased the music in the first place. If there were a way to remove items from the shuffle list, or a way to create playlists with more than 400 songs, this would be a big improvement to the app. Lastly, this app is HORRIBLE at staying connected. Even when I have constant internet, this app crashes at least 2 times an hour. I work in a lab, gloves on my hands, meaning I'm not constantly able to touch my phone to reset the app. Very poor service.
Basic music only When you click do not play again it does not remember from one to the next. So you end up skipping the same songs all the time.
The itunes killer (for me personally) This service is so ridiculously easy to use it's not even funny. ITunes is, I'm sorry, garbage. Any service like iTunes that only works with proprietary hardware is doing business in the past. When I had to rely on iTunes I had to jump through so many hoops to listen to my music wherever and however I wanted; authorizations and deauthorizations up the wazoo. I can sign into amazon music with just my email and password on almost any device you can name.
What once was great is now bad I loved this app but recently it keeps locking up or closing itself for no reason. Please fix so I can be a happy Prime member again. Thanks.
