A lot of potential

8Tracks has a lot of potential as an app. I use it to find mood music when working or studying, but there are some issues that need fixing with the next update, assuming one ever comes: —The UI is BEYOND outdated. It’s the same one that’s been in use for at least the last three years. It’s old and stale, and at the very least could use a touch-up, if not a complete overhaul —There’s no ability to sort tags. I’d like to be able to sort by date added, or maybe even by number of tracks in a playlist, but there’s nothing at all with that sort of functionality, and there really should be —There are bugs EVERYWHERE in this app. I keep encountering one where if I go into a playlist, then back out, it only loads X number of playlists past the one I tapped on. I have to exit out of the tag to keep loading what’s available. The in-app browsing integration is just bad, too, and a lot of the features and tools (like closing out of finding something on YouTube) are non-responsive. —There’s no quality control. Apparently instead of having an actual library of tracks, 8Tracks lets users upload from YouTube, and more often than not, it’s a bad quality, unofficial track. This needs to be fixed. —No updates in a year? Really? 8Tracks has a lot of potentially to be really good, but right now, it’s clunky and not intuitive.

Too buggy to use

I’ve had an 8tracks account for years, and really love it as a way to find and share music. However, the app rarely functions as it should. For one thing, the songs don’t play on their own. I have to individually press play on every song, and unless I have the app open, the ads between the songs won’t play. I used to listen to playlists on 8tracks while driving, but now that I have to manually play everything, I’m unable to do that. I also had a premium subscription for a while, but got rid of it because the app still functioned as though I hadn’t, making me listen to ads anyway. I’ve been a supporter of 8tracks through the years, and I appreciate all the work that’s gone into keeping it running, but I’m not going to pay for, or even continue to use a product that just... doesn’t function.

Lot of fun

There’s a lot of artistry to 8tracks. Making mixes for friends is a time-honored way to share some very personal ideas and feelings which otherwise might be left inadequately expressed. Also, sometimes I want others to know how I’m feeling–whether it’s at a dance party, when I’ve got reason to be sad, or just to showcase some new music (or ideas). I love 8tracks!

Can’t leave the app?

I can’t “minimize” the 8tracks app or put my phone on standby to listen while I work, because the playlist will stop after each song. So either I open my phone every time a new song starts to hit play, or I leave the app up the whole time, which is a huge drain on my battery. 8tracks should also do more to equalize the volume between songs, because some are very quiet and the next blows my eardrums out. Maybe go for an app update that’s not a year old?

Issues with player

Love this app - I’ve used this app for a of couple years now! I always recommend it to friends when I get the chance. However there’s a new glitch, you’re not able to continue a playlist when the next song on the list won’t start. Each time this has happened I had to open the app up and hit the play button for each song. Other than that everything else works great!

Great app! Only one complaint....

This is an amazing app and I love it so much it’s a great way to share music and find different kinds of music you can listen to I love it so much, expect for the fact that you can’t listen to same playlist more than once if you want to listen to that playlist again you have to wait 8 HOURS! Which I think is unnecessary and it’s my only complaint I really want to bring attention to this and I hope this is something that can be fixed soon!

Amazing App!

I've been using 8tracks for 5 years now and haven't missed making a monthly playlist since I started. This app is so simple to use and works wonderfully. I always discover new music on here very easily, but the best part is being able to play my own playlist through this app without downloading them onto my phone and taking up space. The only option I think would be super rad would be a shuffle option for all of my playlist songs. THAT WOULD BE SO GREAT. Keep up the great work guys!!

Actual complaint and free users advice.

8tracks current glitch: putting my account as free user, when I’m a paid user ( for a freaking long time) I loved 8tracks for a long time. When it was free worldwide, my international friends and I would share different playlists that we liked. When they closed their doors to other countries, I was sad but you can’t keep up fees to pay for servers and other things when a free service isn’t given love. When they went to subscriptions I was so freaking relieved, no more ads! For the people complaining about ads, this is one of the cheapest subscriptions that allows you to find music based on your mood, or kind of day you want. If your complaint is that it’s not good enough as a free version, then please don’t even write a complaint. Just skip yourself to another service. A one month subscription costs, less that a normal fancy coffee at Starbucks, less than an allday bus pass in L.A., less than a pack of beer, less than a trip to the movies, and the list goes on. For something that you will enjoy on a daily bases, the 1 month subscription is really affordable. Don’t belittle this app just because you can’t and/or won’t pay for it. It has been worth each month I paid.

Great when it works!

The free version is selective when it works
By NP Tee

Great variety. Great price.

See title. But add that I think it might drain battery kinda fast. Not sure. Musically speaking it’s tops though.
