Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic app for discovering new songs YOU want to hear
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It provides notifications and a feed for newly released songs, EP’s, and albums from artists of your choosing that can be imported from Apple Music.
The one suggestion I have for improvement is more customization. For example, I wish I could edit my feed and notifications to only include songs and albums written by my followed artists, not all the songs they’re featured on. An option to turn this on or off would greatly improve my experience, and other different customizable settings could benefit other users too.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review! That's a great idea, I'll probably add it on the next update 👍
I'm very happy to announce that version 1.7 is live on the App Store! Now you can choose which type of release you'll like to be notified, using the Notification Management feature!
Extremely Disappointed with latest Downgrade
It was an update but it’s actually a downgrade. To add the latest “great” feature, Follow Labels, Concerts has been removed. Who follows entire Labels? That’s completely useless! And now to find a concert you have to select artists, then select an artist, then select the menu, then select Search Events! Which then takes you to the Songkick website! And then it only shows you events for that artist! So if you want to see concerts near you, you have to then enter the city or cities you want to search? That’s a huge amount of effort compared to the old PAID way where the app used your location and showed you events for multiple cities within selected miles from you. So Concerts is useless now and that purchase was a waste of money! You might as well just download the Songkick app and save yourself a bunch of steps! This app just lost half its useful functionality and half its value. 2 stars because the Releases feature still works well.
Developer Response ,
The Concerts feature had to be removed because Songkick changed some policies regarding the number of requests I can make to the API. Because of this change, further integration with Songkick will not be possible.
To try to make up for the functionality that was lost, users that had purchased the Filter Concerts feature will now have free access to following record labels. Although it's a completely different functionality, some users might find value in it.
Following record labels was one of the most requested feature I had in my backlog so, although you may not find it very useful, lots of other users think differently. So I'm glad I was able to finally implement it.
My favorite way of tracking new releases from my favorite artists! BUT, there’s a problem…
I highly recommend music fans download this app and use it to preview and save new releases from your favorite artists!
However, although notifications for new releases are advertised as a feature, this has never worked for me. I’ve had the app for several months, upgraded to all paid benefits, and made sure my Notification Center settings are all checked for this app. However, I’ve never once received a notification.
THe reason I’m posting only 3 stars is because after reporting the issue to the developer, he was very dismissive. I found that deserved a lower rating, and a review—explaining my experience.
I guess: don’t expect notifications to work, and don’t expect the developer to care?
