Ratings and Reviews
Exactly What I Was Looking For
I’ve struggled for a while trying to organize my classical collection on iTunes without much success for a simple reason: iTunes organizes music by track. That doesn’t work for classical music. When I found IDAGIO I cleared my classical collection from iTunes and I rebuilt it on IDAGIO. Now I find myself listening to IDAGIO all the time. I love the sound quality and the search engine. I can find what I want to listen to quickly and I can enjoy it and get lost in the music thanks to this little app.
One request to the product management team: Please give us CarPlay support. I want to see IDAGIO on the CarPlay screen in my car. You’ll make a lot of us very happy when it finally comes out.
Frequent stops and many “non-starters”
The idea of classical focus streaming is good and I like the way I can search recordings by composers, soloists, ensembles and many criterion that none of the other popular streaming services can match. The lossless streaming is also nice.
However, the connection issues are very annoying. Usually, after a couple skips to find the right music for the moment, the app will be stuck at time zero, with the loading/connecting icon spinning forever. Once this happens, you will not be able to play any other work as they will also be “non-starters”. Only killing (swipe up in iOS) and restarting the app could fix this. Also, the music might suddenly stop in the middle of a piece for no apparent reason sometimes.
Also, as someone already mentioned, there is no easy way you can see the album cover when you are playing the music. The only time the app shows the album cover is when you actually play the “album” instead of a piece you located through search. I am not sure about future generations but most of us today still identify certain recordings by the album covers. There is no point showing the same Beethoven’s portrait when I go through his piano sonatas from various performers.
Great collection and curated playlists.
IDAGIO is a great tool and music service that provides that user a range of different high quality lossless recordings. The music is updated regularly and new recordings are available instantly.
However, the app needs a bit more work, it is not very user friendly and has bugs that needs fixing:
- You cannot reorder songs in a playlists you created.
- There’s not shuffle option when listing to songs anywhere, songs play in the order they are in, and you always have to choose the piece you want to listen to.
- You cannot choose songs to play next or put them in queue.
- There’s no option to choose ‘next similar song by different player’ just like in the website. This is an excellent option that is missing from this app.
- Text is a bit small and hard to read, especially of performers’ names. Can be eye straining sometimes.
- Music stops playing after you receive a phone call.
- There are internet connection problems, especially when streaming on cellular network.
Suggestions for Review:
- Please add a Dark Mode option. The menus can be too bright, especially when browsing at night.
- Can you please add the option to have the album’s artwork appear in the music player, instead of the composer’s picture. This is very helpful when choosing between music pieces by looking at the picture than just reading the recordings names.
- Can you please add Force Touch support for supported devices.
Developer Response ,
Thank you very much for your extensive feedback, we highly appreciate your input. You can already edit your personal playlists in the IDAGIO iOS app. To do this, open your Collection and the playlist you would like to change. Select the three dots in the top right to open the menu and tap Edit. By tapping and holding the symbol on the right hand side of each track, you can change its position.
We have also just integrated continuous playback, which will recommend you similar music after the previously selected playback ends and are planning to improve this feature.
Our catalogue is structured differently than most streaming services, since we offer many recordings that have not necessarily appeared on albums. For this reason, we currently show the composer image when playing a recording. To see album artwork, you can select the album a recording appeared for playback. I will pass on your feedback to our product team nevertheless to check, if we can make this more clear to our users in the future.
We hope to also progress with other functionalities soon and are happy to keep you posted if there are any news.
If you have any further questions, ideas or feedback in the meantime, feel free to get in touch with us on email@example.com anytime.
Best regards and happy listening,
