Using AZlyrics.com from now on 1/5
By al sharpteen
I’ve had this app for years and it is still constantly crashing on my iPhone 7 just like it did on my 5 and 6. When first opening the app it runs smooth enough looking up a song MAYBE two. After that I’m having to close the app out because it freezes in between switching pages or becomes unresponsive. After three years of dealing with this I have had enough. These problems were even present before they took the ‘Rap’ out and became genius. I think the fact that you put under the update details that many bugs have been fixed and improvements were made when we all know that was a lie. I’m going back to my safari app and using azlyrics at least I know i can count on them
App is broken in many annoying ways. A lot of annotations are completely irrelevant.
App crashes a lot 1/5
By Mikey Rockz
Crashes constantly when loading lyrics
You guys fell off 😔👎🏽 1/5
I had this app for about 8 years and I remember the days when you guy broke down almost all the lyrics to every song on here. I know its a lot of song that come out and you’re making it open to the people to break down the lyrics but can you guy go back to doing it please 🙏🏽
Constant freezing and crashing 1/5
By Lazy Jellyfish
This app is basically non-functional. Any time a new page loads, whether it be the home page, the search page, a lyric page, whatever, it’ll freeze for minutes before either unfreezing or crashing. Load another page from there and the same occurs. It’s a shame, Genius is the best lyric website, but the app is terrible.
Please fix this. 1/5
I can't use the app at all. I have to go to the internet and find another website with lyrics. Every time I open the app it freezes up and crashes. Every. Single. Time.
Was Excellent, Needs to Get Better 4/5
I’m not sure if anyone else has experienced the extremely slow lag whenever you open the app while listening to a song? It’s almost as if it doesn’t register tapping within the app, either it takes a couple minutes to register or crashes, and I’ve been waiting for an update to fix this for over a month. Other than this functionality issues, the app should really have lyric editing and metadata editing features that are included on the website. These key components would help add convenience to contributors on the go without needing access to a compute, which quite frankly should’ve been added quite a while ago. Other than the basic speed issue and the added features, still a great app with loads of excellent aspects that just need some rework :^)
What is going on?! 2/5
i’ve used this app for a good 1 year now and it’s worked fine but all of a sudden it’s crashing and lagging and freezing. this has never happened before so ima little concerned and disappointed. i love this app but if it’s gonna do this i won’t need it or recommend it! so cmon genius do something here
NEEDS A FIX 1/5
By Ur M0mS #0uz3
If you like waiting 10+ minutes just to see the lyrics to a song you were listening to 10 minutes ago this is the app for you! Also, if you love apps that crash constantly this is the perfect fit! As the genius app evolves it is progressively getting worse, stick to what you know best, song lyrics, enough with the videos, save it for YouTube. How about an update that fixes the app so people can see the lyrics to the song their listening to at the moment rather than looking at a blank template waiting for it to load. Needs an update and it needs it now.
By Jack lock rule
I never rate but this is an exception- I love how you could save lyrics, but it is so slow it take me 40 seconds to ‘save’lyrics... can you add where you could select a bunch of an artists songs to save all at once? So much easier. It’s hard for me to even save A SINGLE SONG, it keeps crashing
Just horrible after this last update, extremely laggy when it does work. It just stays frozen as soon as I open the app and I am running the latest iOS on my iPhone 7.
Please update this app soon, I am going to be forced to delete it and use the browser website seeing as it’s unusable...
Would give it 0 stars if I could.
So laggy and slow on iPhone 5s 2/5
I really love Genius because it’s a complete database and easy to use and free but it’s too laggy and working slowly on my iPhone 5s! pls do something for these lags.. thanks
By Nick Hradisky
This app lags and freezes every other time I try to use it making it unusable. Faster to just use Google instead.
amazing app when, when it works 4/5
By Mr Watevr3
the app is great but some new past update made it so I can't navigate the lyrics of a song without the app crashing :/
Genius idea. Poor execution. 2/5
The idea behind the Genius app is an incredible one. The pure amount of knowledge this app can access is unfathomable. However, it’s a shame that the app runs as poorly as it does. The app constantly freezes and crashes! I have had this app on my phone for years! While I have watched the interface progressively grow, the app still functions like garbage! It shouldn’t take anyone this long to fix bugs as serious as these!
What Happened? 1/5
It used to work so well, but now...
• the app itself is laggy as hell and glitches. Sometimes the lyrics to a song doesn’t even show up. It just shows a blank page with the Genius logo
• I don’t mind ads, obviously the developers need to make their money, but I could be viewing lyrics or searching for a song and I get redirected to the App Store or a web page.
• It can randomly reset randomly and take me back to the homepage when I’m viewing a lyric page.
• the app loves to crash too. Like, it kicks me out of the app for no real reason.
The app always glitches and goes to ads and the App Store repeatedly over and over again. It crashes half the time and won’t let me look at the song descriptions. Wouldn’t recommend
Love Genius 5/5
Use this app almost everyday love to view song credits, and the app recognizes the song you are currently listening to. That’s Dope!
Great app for music lovers 5/5
Genius can know what song you are listening to and give info about the origins of a song who wrote it sometimes exactly where and the meaning of the lyrics animations on the app (normal use) is very smooth and well done only problem is it’s done by the public and not all song have stuff written but usually not a problem
Full of bugs and errors 1/5
Great great app but full of crashes and errors
Does nothing but crash 1/5
Over and over and over
Lyric images crash constantly 2/5
By ThAt ONE GUY!!.. :$
Good app just need to fix this long lived problem.
Needs an update 11/14 1/5
Locks up/Crashes almost instantly when I try to use it after the latest iOS update. Please Fix!!!
its good but right know its gettin annoying 5/5
it keeps freezing and i uninstalled than i installed it again but still does the same thing please help
It's good but slow. Really slow. Searching is a hassle and songs aren't in albums. But it works(?).
This app is great when it’s actually working; which is only for a certain amount of time before it’s unusable. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app always fixes the problem, but that shouldn’t have to be done in the first place. This would be a 4 star app if you didn’t have to constantly go through the chore of redownloading it whenever it becomes unresponsive.
Can’t even search songs 1/5
By Jeffery Tann
Second I click on a song or find it from the app listening it will glitch out and i can’t do anything. I have to shut down the app completely multiple times for it even go back to the main screen. Somehow when it freezes it’ll literally just be like a picture of my phone when it was on that screen. If I had WiFi on and turn it off, WiFi will be over lapping my LTE symbol when I go back to the frozen app even though I don’t have WiFi on. lyrics won’t load, description won’t load, name of song and album art won’t load half the time. I love genius as a site but fix your app because it’s broken.
I like this app but been having issues since... 3/5
By alicia leash
I really like this app, I usually dnt have problems but since the last update my app has been freezing when open some times. If I am able to search lyrics is freezes on the page and I can’t scroll. Hopefully this is fixed soon and I can give it 5 stars
Great App 5/5
Great app for giving you all the lyrics and reference for almost any song. Love the library import and now playing features. A little slow at times. Favorite thing is the quote share where you create an image for line(s) from a song but it needs to incorporate attribution from featured artists so I can quote the other artists on the track.
My genius app has always worked well, I've used it for years but now a days it's slower than ever and glitches so much, I deleted and downloaded the app again but still nothing seems to work, it also crashes when loading a songs lyrics.
great website, app does not load at all! i can’t visit any pages. when i try to pull up lyrics, the app freezes.
By onika is my mother
i love this app so much but for the last week or so i cant even open the app without it freezing and eventually crashing or if it doesn’t crash it takes 7 years for a page to load
update: i can’t even open it now lol
App Keeps Crashing 3/5
By Adrien Quintero
When ever I want to make lyric messages the app always crashes when I select save image. It happens every time I finish picking the lyrics.
Keeps randomly muting my music. 1/5
When I click on a line without fail every single time today it has muted my music and been really glitchy.
Constant Freezing 1/5
Can’t even use the app. Constantly freezes when i open it, and if it unfreezes I cant open anything, and it’ll just crash before it can even load anything. Used to not do this, but recently this has been an issue. don’t know why this is happening but it’s really annoying since only a week ago it worked perfectly fine.
Creating lyric images doesn’t work. Sometimes it crashes when I try creating an image, other times the screen loads and the different images at the top load but the lyrics don’t.
Works for me🤷🏻♂️ 5/5
They don’t have alllll the stuff I like but that’s 👌🏼
I’d give a zero if I could. 1/5
Every phone I’ve had besides my flip phones and what not has had rap genius on it. Ran GREAT until the last few updates. Started freezing for no reason at all when looking at lyrics or even searching for lyrics. It’s slow, doesn’t work now and has been removed from my phone. This is my first ever “bad review” so over it honestly.
A little annoying 3/5
By Josh is melodramatic
Used to love this app but it keeps freezing and I could never read the lyrics anymore but it won’t even open
Great app when it works 3/5
I love genius and have had the app for a long time. But recently the app has been repeatedly crashing on the first page or if I open more than 3 songs. It didn’t use to be this way :/
When genius works it’s an informing and fun app. Hope updates will fix the issues
Lagging Still 2/5
When the app works it works, but when it doesn’t it’s super slow.
Very slow and often quits unexpectedly 2/5
Otherwise a great app it has all the song lyrics I could hope for but it sometimes takes up to 3 full minutes to load the lyrics to one song.
Great App... When it works. 1/5
I love this app, it's a wonderful app. One of the best I've ever used on iOS.
One major problem:
After a certain update (unsure of which), the app started becoming extremely laggy, unresponsive, and even un-useable in many situations.
Devs, please optimize this app better. I'm running it on iOS 11 iPhone 6s and every app I use works fine except this one.
I love Genius but it crashes so frequently, over the course of several updates. Most recently, if I try to generate a “Create your own” image with lyrics, the lyrics don’t appear. I tried to uninstall and reinstall to correct the issue but if the lyrics do show, the image generating process crashes the app. I’ll continue to use in hopes of improved performance in the future, just like I do now. :)
Too many bugs 3/5
When this works, this is one of favorite and most used apps when it comes to music. But every time I open it, it just freezes or lags. It’s so bad I can’t even ready lyrics sometimes. Please fix
Very slow and laggy since the newer updates 2/5
Very slow and laggy since the newer updates
Great when it works 2/5
The app is a great app for lyrics when it functions, which sadly isn’t very often. The app often freezes, lags, and crashes, which makes it unusable.
Works Great 5/5
I've used the app for a while and I have never had any issues. It has made it so much easier to find lyrics to songs. It usually has them as soon as the music is released as well. Overall I have nothing bad to say about this app.
App is so very laggy
By Jordan Pinson
After most recent update the app doesn’t even work.
