Very Frustrating This is a great resource, but ruined by an Android app that fails about half the time. It skips tracks, often times just deletes a whole playlist right in the middle for no apparent reason, and on and on with the frustrating issues. And heaven forbid you get a phone call or a mtg notification - major snafu will ensue! Bottom line, I dread using it.
Scam Google description says you can download when in fact you cannot.
needs a lot of work It's always frustrating when a terrific resource - like CA - is held back by a mediocre app. This app needs to be better designed and work more intuitively. Eg.: choose to search for a piece/performer etc. and get all the albums, rather than hundreds of tracks. Now that makes sense. Think about starting fresh rather than tweaking this app. Great resource. Needs a MUCH better app, expecially considering that these days more of us are probably accessing the service via mobile than desktop.
Add Chromecast support? Very handy extension of my C.A. subscription to android devices. Would be still more useful if it supported streaming to chromecast & similar devices...
Poor Android performance using Android 4.. Download buffer too small. Drops connections. Deletes/clears whole stored play lists regularly. Hangs at the end of a track. Have to press 'end' to get to next track. Times-out after 30 minutes. Sometimes deletes whole queue when forcing end of a single track.
Nice selection, app still needs work There is nice selection of music with navigation user interface that is specially designed to accommodate classical music. However, the player is a bit buggy. For example, if I pause a track and try to start again, it immediately jumps to the next track. I have been a user of Classical Archives for a long time, so I hope these issues get fixed and this will be a great app.
