Love the people-oriented curation of music. Would love it more if there was a section for cached songs (so I don't have to use my data). Recent (March 2021) updates has resulted in songs not playing. The only fix I've found is to uninstall and reinstall the app, but this is an easy enough workaround for a free app/service. Still giving them $3 / mo to support their dev efforts.

Make it easier to search through the track. If a song is playing, I would like to skip to the middle without tapping on the blog link. It's frustrating. Preview mode has no purpose if we can't move it forward and backward. Make it more user friendly. Right now the only reason why I don't use it as much and why I stopped monthly subscription is because the user interface for the song is frustrating. With spotify, you can move the song to the middle without being afraid of tapping on anything else

PLAYBACK ERROR MESSAGE ON 90% OF MY SONGS!!! I've been using this app since 2013. It'll work if you uninstall and reinstall. I've already done that several times. Also, I noticed that a handful of my songs in my favorites are missing completely. I stream this mostly in the car. I need to keep my eyes on the road. Not jerk around with my phone trying to get my songs to play. I've just uninstalled again and contemplating never reinstalling. Does this with Samsung S8+ and now my new S21.
