Must have app!

If you have been a fan of Poolside FM since the beginning, you will already know you NEED this app.
If not, trust me when I say.... you NEED this app.
At the visual end, it's a wonderful step back into 80s tech nostalgia as you navigate through an old school retro music player.
But more crucially it is a carefully curated epic playlist split out over 'vibes' rather than genres to offer something no music fan can afford to miss.
If you like cool undiscovered music on a hot day and can't stand the detritus being regurgitated on radio play, then download immediately.

The only music app you will ever need!

This is the single greatest release in the world. Poolside provides pleasure beyond understanding when it comes to creating the perfect environment for listening to some of the smoothest music around! Perfect for a multitude of situations from those long hours at work to relaxing in the jacuzzi with a cocktail. Summer 365 days a year.

Love the desktop app, but

I really love the desktop version of Poolside (gotta say, I prefer the aesthetic of that one a bit more though), so I was stoked to finally see a mobile version, so I could listen to these vibes over my bluetooth speakers easily.

However, it’s not quite working right for me. At the end of each track, the whole thing comes to a halt and I have to manually press play on the next track. Which is difficult to do when I’m trying to drink a martini with one hand and drive my Ferrari with the other (that was a JOKE - as if I could afford a Ferrari).

Seems like it’s only a problem when using airplay, so if you’re plugging into your phone manually, you should be fine.

Really want to love this app, but it’s not working as I need it to right now. Looking forward to a fix though, and I promise to change my rating when it’s done.
