Review from James Streck
Good until update... App worked flawlessly until update. After update every track crashes 15 to 20 seconds in. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app, seems to have resolved the issue. HTC EVO 4GLTE JB 4.1.1
No more unlimited listening I loved this app, I used it as my primary way of listening to music. But now unless I pay there is only 2 hour a week of listening. There is no way, I use more than that in a day. Especially during finals. I don't want to see 8tracks die, but I'm going to have to get my music somewhere else and I'm guessing a lot of other people will too
By far the best collection of playlists. I love this app and am an avid user. Love listening to people's playlists and choices. Btw, there's some issue with the notification widget in the recent update. Play/Pause doesn't seem to work as it should. It'd be appreciated if this bug is fixed soon.
Mildly irritated The ads play over the actual music instead of pausing it, which is confusing and annoying. Also the whole 8tracks Plus BS is lowering my appreciation for a music app that I previously enjoyed.
Used to be my favorite site / app If you spend hours putting together a playlist someone can only hear it once, worse yet if they forget to like a song the tracks are immediately hidden and then they are not allowed to listen again or see the tracks until the next day. I can just listen to these songs on repeat for free on youtube, why waste my time with this frustration. Before the new 'regulations' & updates 8tracks was a full 5+ stars, now it's just another disappointment. EDIT Found out now you can only listen 2 HOURS a week= uninstall
I take back everything ive ever said I used to love 8tracks until they decided to charge me for services i used to get for free. A weekly listening restriction is absurd and i will not be upgrading and supporting this app any longer
Good, needs work Good service and quality, good ui, but some bugs that need squashing, ex: pause button from the pull down menu player doesn't pause, meaning you need to go back into the actual app to pause. Besides a few bugs that are annoyances, it's pretty good.
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 email@example.com.
