A zero isn't low enough

Throughout the past year, users have reported how the app arbitrarily counts a mix as played even though you haven't heard all of it. If you get a phone call or just unplug your iPhone from CarPlay, your listening will get counted. Often times I'll only make it through 15 minutes before an interruption, which is then counted as one play. If I don't make it through a complete listen before an interruption, I'll get another count and before I know, I've reached the max count of three without ever having listened to the entire mix even once.

Worse than that is the bug introduced about 6 weeks ago where the app insists that I'm offline even though I have both a strong cell signal and a strong wifi signal. No matter what, I can't get it to recognize that I'm very much online. The app has been bricked. I've emailed the developer and got a reply asking for some info. I provided it over a week ago and it's been crickets from them since. Meanwhile the app is still useless going on its 2nd month now.

Same problems keep popping up

The same problems that have plagued this app continue to do so, despite the many developer responses of them being fixed or “we are aware and are working on it.” Pausing a mix will sometimes not lose your place, but most of the time it does. If I hit pause to pump gas, by the time I turn the car back on when I’m finished the app has completely forgotten what I was listening to. Requires a force close and reopening the app, and it might start on the next mix which requires you to start the previous (original) mix from the beginning. Do this two more times and boom, that’s your three ‘plays’ of a mix for this two week period. If you only got to listen to ten minutes of it then too bad.

A new problem that started after one of the recent updates has been the player on the lock screen and control center disappearing on iOS. This requires opening the app back up to pause and skip. Sometimes if you force close the app and open back up it will solve this, but then you get to deal with the app not remembering where you were or the correct mix. Sometimes force closing the app does not fix the disappearing play controls issue though.

It seems like every fix just creates new problems, while not even adequately fixing the original problem. Ugh!

Hi there. Thanks for the detailed feedback...and we are still investigating the play position not always being remembered correctly.

Mixcloud is awesome, the app not so much

Mixcloud as an idea and the execution deserves fully 5 stars: mixes are awesome, DJs are great, it pretty much meets all my music needs; I also have Apple Music, but I probably use it less than 5% of the time, while I’m on Mixcloud all the time.

The app, unfortunately, has probably been outsourced to some cheap outfit, with really poor grasp of even the basics of computer science.

The UX is good and works well, but it’s really the basics these guys lack:
- it loses track of the current mix position most of the times;
- from time to time, after being paused, it cannot reconnect (you need to force restart)
- when paused (eg taking one AirPod out) it won’t restart (sometimes, other times it will)
- reordering tracks in the play queue messes up the UX (so, at best you can reorder one, then close the queue, reopen it, move another one; rinse and repeat - truly idiotic, FFS, it’s an ordered list, how hard can it be?)

All the issues are intermittent and inconsistent: this really means poor coding practices and a fundamental lack of testing.

It would be great if Mixcloud, having completely aced their business dynamics, could be bothered to invest in some decent engineering talent.

I would happily sign up for Select, but I’m not going to put money on something that only works 50% of the time.
