Dang this app is Amazing. Sometimes I just can't believe how they gain access to certain samples used. This app has expanded my music knowledge and enjoyment Sooo much over the years. I recommend this ANYONE who loves music. And if your just a casual listener. Look up your favorite artist and I guarantee this app will take you on a journey you'll never regret. Get it!!!! I only wish I could discover some of People Under The Stairs samples as this app has only like 3. Maybe the People won't let t

I use this app every day, multiple times a day. Up until recently, I had literally no complaints about this app, in the 3ish years I've been using it. That is, up until the newest update happened.. Now (at least on my OnePlus 7T) you cannot fwd/rwd the songs anymore. So if the sample I need to hear occured at 8min in, I'd have to listen for 8min to hear the (probably 5 second long) sample. That is a HUGE problem that needs to be addressed. Thank God I didn't update the iPad smh

Hi, thanks for flagging this issue. We will aim to issue a fix for this shortly. In the meantime, please note that as part of the latest update, sample timings are now tappable whenever a YouTube video is shown, so you can just tap on the timings to jump directly to the sample. Best regards, WhoSampled Support

I wanna be clear that I'm rating JUST the app, NOT the service provided. Their website and services provided are 10/10, but the app is a 0. I get that you need to make money and letting anyone use the scan music feature would be costly. However, forcing people to have that subscription to remove ads, which are full screen and intrusive? No thank you. I'd gladly p
