First, IDAGIO is without doubt the best source for streaming classical music. They gave an incredible library, and put together really wonderful playlists. But the app is terrible. I can never get more than half way through a playlist, or maybe a half hour into a piece, before it simply freezes up. Not only will it not finish the piece, but it freezes the app entirely, so that you can’t begin to listen to anything else. Pandora doesn’t have this problem. Why can’t IDAGIO fix this?
The single greatest feature of this service (for me) was the fine grained search, and it appears to be gone now. I want to search for “Asturias”, tap “works” filter those results by composer (Albéniz), then see all arrangements, then see specific recordings. As it is, the search just returned everything with “Asturias” in it with different arrangements being different works. Honestly if I can’t search like this, this billing cycle will be my last. Also, please don’t even show me search results that aren’t available in my country. Also, please add a queue feature.
The service is incredible. Bravo! A small issue with the application. For desktop and phone: we need a way to filter, search through and sort our own collection. HIGHLY IMPORTANT. I imagine all users paying for the service are classically inclined and therefore will have more saved in their collection than just a few, well known works. In other words, support for big libraries! (Another small note: album artwork needs to be adjusted to show smaller so that it is no distorted on phones with bigger screen like iPhone pro max)
Excellent library but way too expensive.
Search function is super lame
Using IDAGIO before I to bed and it’s truly my new favorite app. (Say goodbye to ugly Sp*tify)
I’ve purchased a few concerts through their website. I wanted to AirPlay the most recent one to my TV, but after downloading this app and signing in, I can’t find any information about my account or concerts I have tickets for. Useless to me without this obvious feature.
I didn’t not know I needed this app until I tried it out. It is innovative, easy to use, and convenient. It is true that classical music is very different; it can’t be treated the same as other music (not to condemn other genres). The app itself is an experience not unlike the music it offers. I cannot imagine what I’d do without it!
I have wanted to listen to more classical music but never knew what to listen to. The IDAGIO playlists are like a good friend taking you by the hand and leading you into new worlds. The music is so interesting! I love all the creative playlists and “mood” streams. I have a paid subscription because I want to support the artists.
Similar to other music platforms, yet the content is very well thought and of high quality, which is what keeps me coming back to this app when I want to listen to classical music. I love the ‘Mood radio’ and recently I have been enjoying the ‘advent calendar radio’ a lot.
