Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t let you see specifics
The Apple Music for artists phone app lacks a lot. Unless I’m missing something, you can see the graphs and the numbers for the week or month, but you can’t click those graphs and see daily numbers or what songs were purchased, etc.
The one thing I do like about the app that I haven’t seen elsewhere are the milestones. It helps you see what songs are doing best and makes you feel good about your achievements.
The desktop version does let you see the specific numbers. So I am hoping in the future, they improve the phone app so we can see more of the statistics there and not have to go to the desktop to see everything!
Needs a lot of work and better communication
I don’t dislike Apple Music as a platform, I think it’s easy to use and it’s a reliable source of streaming. The problem of this app lies in the problems i’ve had with getting support. First off, when i uploaded more music after a few months it created an entirely new artist page, leaving me with one artist page with my EP, and one with 2 singles. I asked them to merge this which took about 2 weeks (mind you it says 5 business days max). Now, you’d think this is where the problem ends but no. Now instead of having access to one page and not the other, i didn’t have access to my artist account at all. i’ve reached out to them and still have yet to get a response. it’s been another 2 weeks. Finally, when i did ever have access to the artist page, it was very stingy about a picture of my full band, square cropped, and fitting into the frame, so i could never even customize my own page. I think it has great potential to be more user friendly but i don’t expect the change any time soon, it was easier when it was just a website.
Love the new features, but even MORE confusing
I really love the new features that Apple has added for their artists app, but the user interface has just become more convoluted and confusing. The last update was easier to navigate and find/do things. This update has hidden more things in different sections that aren’t immediately clear for someone who is used to using different artist management apps for streaming platforms, they could’ve added the new features on the same page is, they’ve had before, without changing the navigation
