Almost Good, Poor for Multitasking Most apps require a one-time initial sign in, but NML often sends me back to the sign in screen after leaving the app and coming back. It also occasionally sends me to the "recent additions" list in between tracks.
Crashes and weird persistence issue The app crashes frequently. Fortunately, it usually picks up at the same track I was listening to, but this usually takes a while, sometimes up to 10 seconds. Also, even after closing the app, it shows up in the now playing section on my lockscreen.
Good, but a few bugs and missing things I love the fact that there are so many pieces of music on here, but the app is buggy. It likes to pretend I'm not logged in when I'm listening in the background; the CD covers stay up when I've turned off the app; and the app could really use a prompt when the internet is down, rather than perpetually loading. Also, certain features from the website are missing: searching by composer/artist/genre, and checking my own playlists that I created on the computer.
I love Naxos, but app needs a lot of attention 1. The biggest issue is logging in every time, it's very irritating and inconvenient 2. The interface and design is very out of date, it could have a much nicer look to it. 3. The browsing setup could be designed a lot better, I'd really like to browse through artists and performers. 4. I would be willing to pay for the app if it was better, I'm a college student studying music and this has been a useful tool for me despite these issues, I'd really like to see the quality of this app improve.
Horrible Frequently crashes and asks to log in again. It always stops when I lock the phone, when it's screen goes black or when I'm in another app. It asks to log in again and the app doesn't allow it. The only way to make it work again is to force stop it and try again. Is very annoying to use and the user interface is poorly designed.
Works well, except... I haven't had many problems with this app, except that if my music is paused and I get a notification it begins playing again after my ringtone has finished. Not the worst problem it could have, but I've gotten some interesting looks recently.
