Editors' review

SoundCloud is a compilation of different tools and features that you may be familiar with in different settings. Designed as a mobile social network for music and audio creators (and their listeners), the service serves as a great way to share your sounds while discovering new ones from friends and artists alike. While its hybrid nature leads to a few limitations, it is ultimately an engaging, exciting way to interact with music and podcasts.

After registering for a new account or logging in with your existing account, SoundCloud takes you to your home screen where you can start recording your own sounds immediately. A "sound" can be anything from a song by your band to a diatribe uploaded as a podcast or spoken word track. Recording is very easy with buttons located on almost every screen, but this is only half of the fun of SoundCloud. At the same time, you can see, comment on, and share other people's sounds, or you can search for sounds by top artists or podcasters already in the system. While knowing who is on SoundCloud is not always easy, the sheer volume of content is very impressive.

SoundCloud is easy to use, attractive to look at, and filled with content. Despite some small issues it has with the home interface, a plethora of spam users, and a confusing payment structure for accessing premium content, it is a well-designed app that perfectly supplements the service. If you are a SoundCloud user or you are interested in exploring what SoundCloud has to offer, this is a good app for you.

    "A killer app for music fans"

    February 28, 2014   |   By DubaisDreamworks

    Version: SoundCloud - Music & Audio Discovery 2.7.1

    Pros

    This is an unbelievably versatile application which completely changed the way I interface with music on a daily basis. The biggest benefits for those that love music is that (a) you can be updated the second your favorite artists release new tracks -like a twitter for new music- and, (b) you can quickly generate playlists which can be accessible globally and further aid others through tags who are looking for similar music. As for the loading time which was mentioned above, try seeing which buffers quicker, Youtube or soundcloud. Soundcloud buffers almost instantly with very little bugs. On the mobile app I can stream a song on 2 bars of service in the mountains. It's practically the only app i have that does function up in the hills of Santa Cruz.

    Cons

    Every once and a while when you click songs they just won't play. If you refresh it pretty much always solves the problem however.

    Summary

    One of the most handsome and utilitarian apps out there. It truly makes a great case for streaming services. I use my Itunes for my permanent collection of music and get all my new music from soundcloud. Couldn't be more excited about the apps direction.

    "Needs some work"

    December 12, 2011   |   By smartymarti

    Version: SoundCloud 2.0.1

    Pros

    Loved this app when it first came out, but updates are disappointing.

    Cons

    Needs to work on some bugs, mainly with the audio cutting in and out, loading performance, and buffer size.

    Summary

    I've been a fan of this app since it came out, but I was very disappointed with this latest update. The performance is poor when it comes to loading songs and comments, especially when you are in areas with low signal. The audio tends to get cut, as the song continues to play. It's practically impossible to listen to a song without some discrepancies.
