Okay the Mac app was like... just completely broken. Apparently something to do with a crack in our 10,000 gallon HQ aquarium sending dozens of thousand-dollar koi flying into the Mac app's mainframe hardware. Thanks to Niek's suspiciously impressive bare-hand-fish-catching abilities our koi were returned without harm. Thanks to FLEX TAPE®, THE SUPER STRONG WATERPROOF TAPE, our aquarium is re-sealed*. And most importantly, the Mac app is back online.
*Pun not intended
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Playlists for memories of a distant past
Listening to this delightful little radio sends me back in time, and space, inside the brain of a human being I’ve never been. Nonetheless this nice human being seems familiar, I can definitely relate and the urge for a drink becomes irresistible. I close my eyes and follow the rhythm with my left foot thinking: if only I could have the random button and be constantly surprised!
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.
