No mini player in notification bar or on lock screen. That's a definite no-no for an Android music app. There's no way to change the music unless I bring the app into focus. If my experience with the music discovery side weren't so good the UX would be a no from me, dog. Please fix that. UPDATE: meh. I was hoping the update would address issues rather than adding "features" just to have them. Rating down 1 star from my initial 3-star rating. For anyone looking, I find Pandora to be pretty good discovery option if you don't use the thumbs at all to influence what gets played. And it has a player where I don't need to switch apps all the time. Useful while driving those times when you don't have Bluetooth.
The music selection and audio quality is great! I love the new support for app shortcuts in the latest update. Unfortunately the app uses a lot of ram (over 200 MB, sometimes reaching over 400 MB). This causes the app to be very unresponsive and laggy and often being terminated by the Android OS. Please optimize the performance.
Service is great but the app is terrible. Songs end early. Downloaded songs buffer somehow or just don't play at all and skip to the next track. Randomly songs will start at full volume for a split second before going to the volume I actually have set. A real nice surprise for your ears. Clearly Apple doesn't care about this app as the native iPhone one works great.
Works very well, rarely stops mid-song and skips to the next one or can't load a song. Best song selection available by any app in Israel. No podcast support, even though it's there on Apple Music on my Mac
One of the best ways to stream music. Moreover, it also combines your existing iTunes library with Apple music library. And the quality of music is great for non-audiophiles. However, the interface on Android isn't as pleasant and easy to use as it is on iPhones and other iOS devices.
The recent update is trash. Anytime I am playing song on apple music and I listen to another audio for example IG videos..it will always start my song from the beginning again ..i hope this is fixed
