I love 8tracks, but the app isn't so great. I only recently discovered 8tracks, and I love that I can listen to music I can't really listen to on other streaming sites like Pandora and Spotify. However, I feel that the app needs a lot of work. I often can't pause music, or unpause it, without it glitching. Also, there are a lot of limits in the app as compared to the full site. For example, I would like to be able to add play lists to my collection in the app, or search specific users or terms. Overall though, it works well enough, and I'm satisfied.
Listening cap and forcing subscription They recently put a listening cap on 8tracks. One that only resets once the week is over and only allows 2 hours of listening per week. The only way around the cap is to buy a monthly($5) or yearly($30) subscription. Two hours is too low of a listening time. People will be lucky to get 2-4 playlists listened to. All in all, I am beyond disappointed and will discontinue use of 8tracks for these super limited changes.
I loved it!! When i opened the app, it asked for three artists i liked i put it in, then playlists literally came up with those same artists. The playlists also came up including other artists similar to it!! I loved it. Better than pandora or spotify in my opinion.
No subscription yet Once you do implement it I'm done. People love your website but can't do the ads because you guys do not regulate them. I whitelisted your website bc I appreciate u guys and want u getting paid. I'm instantly met with ads that talk over the music that are hard to turn off. u can't have that. I'll watch ad videos every few songs, I'll take surveys, whatever. u have to control your ads though. But yea once you switch over to a full subscription model I'm bouncing. Your music isn't worth that much to me.
Big 8 tracks user with several gold playlists.... Now you have to pay or your limited to 1 hour a week? Why didn't they just stick to the ad revenue instead of killing their customer base.... Someone's ingenious idea turned south... Lessons about greed
Sound Issue Every so often, the volume will get much quieter, and I can resolve by pressing pause and play, but it will happen again within a few seconds. After maybe a dozen times, it'll stop for ten minutes, then start back up again. Really love this app, but this is rather irritating.
This is a small update which removes some problematic ads and aims to improve some playback issues in the app. If you are experiencing problems, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
