Ratings and Reviews
Decent recordings but keeps quitting
The recording quality is decent but keeps quitting every time you switch networks. Some of the tracks are mislabeled. This app is farther from being go to app for Carnatic music. Being a paid app, I would have expected more professionalism in terms of the content and maintenance
Nicely polished app, wonderful music, signup was a breeze. It would be nice to have a list view of artists, ragas, composers, etc. to browse, but that's a quibble: this is great!
