Ratings and Reviews
Sometimes glitchy and no Apple Watch app. I’m switching to Apple Music
I have been using Google Play Music for a few years now. The choice of music amongst all services is good enough for me. I stuck with Google Play as I have subscribed to other services. I have been waiting (for years) for a Play Music Apple Watch app that I can download music onto so I don’t need my phone. I’ve been waiting too long now. I’m reluctantly switching to Apple Music.
The Play Music iPhone app has got more buggy over the years. In the UK we have missing feature compared to the US. The Aug playlists are repetitive and slow to update. They have taken away some Top X Playlists from us too. SaaS should continually improve, not degrade.
If your getting this app to play music think again
You’d think by paying 10 a month for a service that plays music it would atleast play music. This app has more problems than I have ever seen there’s atleast 30 but the biggest one by far is that the app randomly crashes while playing music. This isn’t after 20 songs this is half a minute into one song and apparently I’m not the only one. Don’t subscribe to this service this has been going on for over half a year I’ve sent atleast 20 feedback letters and talked to customer support more hours than I ever should in my life for one app and nothing has been done to fix this horrible service that can’t even function. Don’t pay these people for a service they can’t provide until they fix it. The developers may as well have a 2 year paid vacation useless app the only thing it’s good for is taking up memory. And best thing about it it’s completely unpredictable. The app will work for a day or two or three and then all of a sudden randomly the app starts having these crash problems for days, rendering you from listening to music for a few days. If the crashing hasn’t started for you yet don’t get your hopes up it’ll probably start soon and you won’t even know until it happens
Appalling user interface
Come on Google you can do better than this. This app has an awful user interface. For instance if I open a single album from an artist on the IPad in landscape mode then I get to see two tracks from the album. Half the screen has a picture of the band (provided by Google - when that works) and is completely useless). Each of the two tracks I see takes as much space as 3 or 4 lines of text. Surely on an album display what you actually want to see is a list of all the tracks. Naturally you may need to scroll down sometimes but not for every album surely?
In addition the app is often extremely slow and crashes out frequently. I know I have 15,000 songs in my library but it should work better than that.
Please change the whole look and feel for a better review.
