The Best Cloud-Based Music Player App
I‘ve been using the CloudBeats Music Player app for well over a year now and it’s just simply the best that I’ve found to meet all of my cloud-based music storage/steaming needs. Its easy and intuitive user interface allows for quick setup and playback. I like creating and listening primarily to playlists and this app plays all of the mixed music seamlessly with no noticeable stuttering or pauses during playback. It works perfectly on both my iPad and iPhone especially when I’m out-and-about and not connected to my high-speed WiFi. With the latest version (2.26.1) which now includes the use of HomePod as an output device, greatly increases its productivity and sound quality. I’ve tried several cloud services (OneDrive, AmazonDrive and iCloud) as storage/playback locations and have never had any issues with connectivity. So, the bottom-line is: the CloudBeats Music Player app is a “must have,” especially when having access to all of the free cloud storage that’s available. Thumbs-Up!
App stands test of time
CloudBeats has greatly expanded in both functionality and scope since its early days when it only supported OneDrive (then known as SkyDrive). The developer (Roman, IIRC) soon added the other well-known Cloud repositories to the app, along with variable speed playback and other features needed for audiobook/podcast playback, among others. All without requesting an extra cent through IAPs or new versions, as seems common with developers now. That being said, the maturity of iPhone and the saturated market make lifetime app licenses seem like a shortsighted idea that have likely contributed to the cesspool of abandonware. I’d much rather pay a patronage than have the developer discontinue an app because it ceased to be personally or economically viable.
With that out of the way, I have one enhancement suggestion and I’m not sure if it’s viable. There’s an option for local cloud but can this be used or repurposed to use an SMB login to a local router and link to a folder of attached storage or its media server?
Fantastic for Music!
I couldn't be happier with this app. I have a giant library of MP3s that were such a pain to import into my music library and sync with iTunes every time I wanted to add or remove any, and this app elegantly replaces that entire process. Now you sign into a Google Drive account after installing the app, then just throw the MP3s into Drive and tell Cloud Beats which folder they're in, and BOOM! All your music is now immediately available.
Data usage can be an issue if you're not on a wireless network, but you can prepare some tracks to be available offline if you know when you're going to be out and about. Coupled with the option to only play offline tracks, this makes it much easier to avoid excessive data usage.
The reviews asking for the ability to skip around within a track to make podcasts more accessible are pretty valid though. From what I can tell, the only way to do that is to have the phone unlocked and the app open, which is probably not how you'll be listening to a podcast.
Overall, I could not recommend this app highly enough. If you want more options for listening to a personal music library that isn't stored on iTunes, you can't do much better than Cloud Beats.
