Ratings and Reviews
Bad, Buggy App for Great Service
Somehow Mixcloud pretends it’s not a music app - I can’t see controls in the Notifications screen nor in the Control Center. If it plays longer than 10 minutes or so, it shuts itself off - most likely because it’s not coded as a music app and unloads itself off RAM or something.
User Interface - not good either. What’s the difference between Feed and New Shows? Queue and Listen Later? How do I see a list of who I follow? Searching doesn’t prioritize people I’ve already followed, so I can’t find my friend except by going through the “Favorites” menu in my Profile.
Is Queue so important for 1-2 hour music formats? That’s a bold proposition for an app that wants to shut off after 10 minutes. Yet it is prominently displayed in the main control screen.
There’s stuff to work on in order to compete with the likes of SoundCloud. DJs love the web application, but the music will most likely be consumed via the app, which misses many marks of stability and usability.
Same problems keep popping up
The same problems that have plagued this app continue to do so, despite the many developer responses of them being fixed or “we are aware and are working on it.” Pausing a mix will sometimes not lose your place, but most of the time it does. If I hit pause to pump gas, by the time I turn the car back on when I’m finished the app has completely forgotten what I was listening to. Requires a force close and reopening the app, and it might start on the next mix which requires you to start the previous (original) mix from the beginning. Do this two more times and boom, that’s your three ‘plays’ of a mix for this two week period. If you only got to listen to ten minutes of it then too bad.
A new problem that started after one of the recent updates has been the player on the lock screen and control center disappearing on iOS. This requires opening the app back up to pause and skip. Sometimes if you force close the app and open back up it will solve this, but then you get to deal with the app not remembering where you were or the correct mix. Sometimes force closing the app does not fix the disappearing play controls issue though.
It seems like every fix just creates new problems, while not even adequately fixing the original problem. Ugh!
Developer Response ,
Hi there. Thanks for the detailed feedback...and we are still investigating the play position not always being remembered correctly.
Best terrible app out there.
Update: Only cause hopefully the developers will listen to us (doubtful...😡)
The worst app out right now and getting worse all the time. I can’t even listen to an entire mix if my phone rings or I get out of my car. How in the hell can you tell me I can only listen to a mix three times in a matter of a couple weeks if I never get to hear the whole thing once. I listen 20mins into a mix for the first time and God Forbid my phone rings or I get out of my car then the app tells me the mix I was just listening to is unavailable due to rights restrictions. Get THIS FIXED or somebody develop an app where my favorite DJ’s can post live mixes and radio shows that is Not MIXCLOUD!!!!!
Some of the best DJ mixes from all the best DJ’s on the planet. But I hate that my feed is full of what other people I follow listened too. I want to see what people I follow upload. Also I don’t want automatic random suggested mixes in my query. Also this not available in your region problem where mixes you were just listening too are not available in your region anymore after you stop the mix is a real pain. Not happy at all but all the best DJ mixes are all housed here.....
