A year or two after the initial release and this app still has a tremendous amount of bugs. It's unfortunate that I'm stuck using it ever since UMLive got ported over to it. For $13/month I would expect a much better experience. Practically every time I open the app it crashes and needs to restart. Trying to download shows for offline use is very hit and miss in terms of whether every track downloads successfully. The lock screen widget doesn't allow me to pause/play most of the time. Shows that have been added recently won't show up unless I refresh multiple times and restart the app multiple times. Loading of shows and subsequent buffering is often incredibly slow even when I have a great network connection. All of this still happens after uninstalls and reinstallation. I'm not sure what else to say. There is A LOT of room for improvement. Not that Nugs cares since they've now more or less cornered the market by getting so many bands to sign on to this service...

I love it, for the most part. Playback is great and I love that I can stream lossless audio. There aren't as many artists as I had hoped there might be, but I understand that's likely due to the artists and not necessarily nugs. The only real problem is the UI, and it's a big problem. I do not like the current interface for seeking through tracks, like, at all. I've noticed a lot of stuttering and occasional freezes when navigating through the app. Finally, the overall design aesthetic is just kind of bland. Put some love into those areas and this is easily nearing five stars, for me. Feature idea: ability to browse shows by city and/or venue would be sweet.
Great app. Great service. The last update fixed the issues I was having with the lock screen controls. You guys are awesome.
I wish I could cast to my Google Home big-brother device.
Latest update fixed a TON of issues. Support for Bluetooth improved tremendously, can now pause and play from my headphones and the notification buttons. Shows current song on the lockacreen. No more issues with audio cutting out on long songs, or having to restart a song after pausing. Fixed almost all my issues with the app. Interface is still not the best, but it is a 100x better experience than it previously was.
Last update significantly improved the apps stability, no UI interface to stop pause or play when phone is locked, but Bluetooth controls work.
Just signed up for this. Gave my details and you can only listen to a fraction of the songs it claims you can
