Cannot open because of sign in spam 1/5
For weeks the app has been unusable! It asks me to log in with my iTunes account, and I do and it works fine. Then next time I open the app it asks for my login again, and if I hit cancel the pop up reappears over and over again until the password is entered.
App launch bug 3/5
I’ve had this app for a long time, but recently it’s been requiring me to input my iTunes password? I don’t know if this is an error on Genius or Apples end. This has been a huge inconvenience.
Just a suggestion 5/5
Great app overall, surprisingly more songs on here than expected. Would be nice if there was a feature added which enables you to save songs which you’ve looked up, to a list; as opposed to just a few being on your recent search history. I’d like to go back and look at old ones I’ve researched from time to time.
Every time I open the app it forces me to put in my Apple ID password. Since I don’t have my password memorized I have to force shut off my phone because it doesn’t even let me close the app without putting in the password. Since this happens every time I use the app I have to delete it.
Keeps asking me to sign in every time I try to use it. It’s pretty frustrating tbh.
takes 5+ seconds to load every time I open it up, even if I just switched away from the app a few seconds ago. otherwise, great. but horrific ally laggy.
One Word - #Sluggish 1/5
By Namata Ebune
App is slow, I mean very slow. Everything about Genius is sluggish. App takes more than 15 seconds before it loads. Come on
Doesn’t work 1/5
Doesn’t load anything and I can’t search up any songs because it doesn’t load 🙃
I Have Those Songs 3/5
The app overall is pretty good but there is one big problem. I have to pay for apple premium to listen to songs I already have at first I was like maybe I just need to share my songs with the app but it still wouldn’t let me play the full song! C’mon people I just wanna listen to my BTS! Please fix 😔
I use genius multiple times a day and I think it’s probably the best app for its purpose. There’s just a couple problems I have with it.
First problem and the worst is the Apple ID sign in. Every time I get on the app it pulls up the little box to sign into my Apple ID. I’ll sign in and after about 10 minutes it pops up again and it’s not my phone it’s got to be the app. It’s the only one that makes me do it and I’ve tried different devices and deleting it but nothing has fixed the problem.
My second problem isn’t as bad as the first. Now I know there are a lot of artists out there but there are a lot of song lyrics and artist that have around one hundred thousand listeners and are missing music on here. Along with the problem of when you search an artist and go to their page there will be duplicates of songs.
APPLE ID??? WHATS THE USE! 1/5
By Marisol Lopez
literally asks everytime i enter the app for my apple ID :( it used to work wonderfully by detecting the song right away when it's playing but now it stops the music when i try to play it and as well as not detecting it right away 3
Now playing 2/5
Please bring it back doesn't show notifications when songs play or display on app main page.
Whenever I exit the app it asks for Apple ID constantly.
Can’t comment on songs anymore? 1/5
Since the last update I am unable to see the comments on a song or post my own. What happened??
Some suggestions for the developers 2/5
This app in regards to the iPad version is fairly good. I’d rather use genius on the web rather than the app except for the fact that this app integrates itself with Apple Music so you can listen to the full version on songs without signing in. I would also prefer for the layout of the app to be more like desktops rather than a blown up iPhone app. Possibly allow for picture in picture music videos as well. Also, make sure the music videos actually work. Just checked that right now. Another thing is the icon, please just look at how badly cropped it is. Really does not lead to a good user experience.
Spam and ads. 1/5
Nothing but spam and aids. I mean ads. But theyre about as persistent and painful as aids.
Good but having issues 4/5
Was a great app but now it keeps asking for me to sign into App Store not happening on any other app but this one
Great website horrendous app 1/5
By Mufti H
It's rather insane that the comments on a song load less than 5% of the time. The app has been glitchy for years as well, constantly crashing or taking you back to the home screen if you leave for a few minutes
App got annoying 1/5
This app used to be great. It used to automatically detect the song you’re listening to and give you the lyrics. Now not only that feature is gone, it keeps asking to sign into your apple id every 2 seconds and you won’t be able to use the app until you sign in. At first it’s not a problem you enter your password, but when you wanna open the app multiple times a day it gets extremely irritating being asked to sign in your apple id every 2 seconds
The search bar is odd 3/5
The search bar is odd because when I tap on it it doesn’t Pull up the keyboard but I untap it and it’s on the top of the screen and doesn’t work so please fix that thank you
what happened? 3/5
The app previously scanned whatever song was playing in your phone automatically. now it doesn’t. also the SEARCH BAR IS SO ANNOYING like give me an auto complete song, and don’t save both the search query and result in the history. that makes no sense. Great app other wise though
Hardly usable for me 1/5
By Michael Chaney
What was once a great source of information and insight has become something that is an unusable mess. Whenever I attempt to use the app it requests me to log in with my apple ID. If I don’t do so, it constantly asks for it repeatedly to where I can’t type a single word to the search bar. If I enter the information then it asks for it again and is a repeat of the above.
great app but.. 1/5
every time i open the app, they want my itunes password! when they have fixed this, then i give them 5 stars.
Secret Subscription 5/5
I have used Genius for a long time without problems, it’s a great way to see lyrics and credits for songs. But recently, they have made it a paid service that cost money to even open the app. There was no warning of the switch to this paid usage, and I was unaware at the time I was throwing away my credit every time I opened the app.
Google Music 3/5
I’m not sure but I don’t think genius works when using Google Music instead of iTunes can anyone help?
Stupid problem 1/5
By TuDuong VL2
I heard of the app and tried to sign up for an account but the app won’t let me pick any nickname I can come up with. This nickname system need to be fixed.
Spent 30 minutes trying to put anything but it won’t allow.
From the first time that I’ve used this app ‘till now I’ve never see a version without any bug but Best
Bring back the comments!! 1/5
By the one that yeets
Bring back the comments!!
Really good 4/5
This app is great for lyrics, hip hop news, and other stuff like that. I would give it 5 stars, but my keyboard won’t pop up when I try to type.
Now playing 4/5
Now playing doesn’t work for me hasn’t in months
This is so wrong 2/5
By Pattrik Wincester
The thing is, i used to LOVE LOVE this app, when i used to open GENIUS while i was playing music on my iphone it used to make a purple ban slide down with the music i was playing and just with a click it took me to the lyrics, since this change I rarely open the app cause its a little too much work having to be searching lyrics by lyrics, and some other cool features it used to have, please fix it or i will delete from my phone, i give you 24 hrs
By fmoig- @heheartsjai
My keyboard won’t pop up for me to type anything on the app pls fix.
Where’d it go? 4/5
By Big Fino
Love the app but what happened to the feature where it automatically knows what’s playing from your phone on Apple Music? I see the notification thing it can do but it used to be just on the home page of the app too, I need that back 🙁
No lyrics 1/5
Where are the lyrics?...and when the lyrics happen to be available, I have to change the song and go back to it for them to pull up. This used to be a great app but it seems that this is not an important issue because it’s been this way for awhile
What is the point of this app without showing the lyrics? I used this app all the time to read along with the lyrics while listening to a song that doesn’t have the lyrics shown on Apple Music, but now I have to look up each song individually. Very frustrating.
Can’t even use the app due to a bug 1/5
Anytime I open the app it repeatedly asks me to log into my Apple account.
Not worth it 1/5
I enjoy using this app when I need to know the lyrics from my favorite songs, but that’s about all this app is good for (which is unfortunate considering there’s a large variety of other things you’re supposed to be able to do with this app) the most helpful feature of the app-The currently listening feature which allows you to immediately view the lyrics for the song you’re currently listening to—No longer works and has not worked in a few weeks now and I have no idea why. I’ve checked all my settings, redownloaded the app several times, etc but nothing is working. I hope this is fixed soon because having to type in the name of the song every time is annoying and unnecessary (and wouldn’t be nearly as much of a hassle if they’d stop suggesting songs that are not even close to being the song you’re listening to because they go by lyrics rather than song titles I guess.)
Edit: forgot I reviewed this app already but I’m reviewing it again. I wouldn’t recommend downloading genius if all you want to do is look up lyrics for songs because honestly it’s less of a hassle to pull up google and type in the name of the song and look at the lyrics from there. That’s what I end up doing 95% of the time after I open the genius app and it freezes. It crashes at LEAST three times before actually loading properly and then it takes forever for it to pull up the song you’re looking for so you can see the lyrics. I don’t use the other features so idk about those but just using the app for looking up lyrics isn’t worth it.
App is Ok 1/5
App works ok. The “editors” on here, however, are garbage, and will not work with you to fix even a simple factual error. So-called rap scholars. I used to think Genius had information that you couldn’t find elsewhere but the more annotations I read the more glaring and ridiculous errors and mistakes I find that the editors are unwilling to fix.
Can't see comments 3/5
For some reason, when I scroll down the lyrics of a song, the comments section isn't there. When I open through safari or a web browser, I can see and post comments below song lyrics.
What happened??? 1/5
I used to be able to listen to an entire song and sing/rap along. Since the last update, I am only allowed a few seconds of a sample.
What bothers me just as much is that despite seeing several people complain about this, the developer doesn’t respond. Obviously, they don’t care. Used to love this app, even if it was a bit glitchy, at times, but no more. Deleting today.
Almost there! 3/5
The app is great, but even when putting certain song titles I get something else, and it gets annoying where I also have to put an artist name right after the title to find the right song, also there should be an option when going to search a song’s lyrics to be a quick select option instead of having to search for it, which could work out great if you have Apple Music connected to the app just like when you change songs within the app it lets your quickly select the songs lyrics I would like that but quick and easy when I open the app it shows the option to pull up the song lyrics easily, besides a few search problems which can be done better and quicker access to lyrics on a currently playing song the app is great but those two things hold it back from getting a 5 star rating from me
Would give a 5 if it synced up with Spotify 1/5
Coming from Android this was one of my favorite apps but as a Spotify user this is useless to me now.
Why can’t I see the comments/suggestions ? 4/5
Great app but the pages always miss or never load the suggestions/comments.
Need the old genius back 1/5
Recently played what happen to it. It’s trash now
Bad Customer Service 1/5
I’ve tried to contact Genius moderators several times in two months, but none of them have responded to me whatsoever. Honestly, Genius would be a great app if not for this problem.
By yall stink
this was my FAVORITE app to read lyrics on. as an animator and story artists that loves to use songs with my creations, this was my heaven. I LIVED for the feature where I could listen and read the lyrics AT THE SAME TIME. But now I can’t listen to it without getting the stupid “Apple Music” crap. I’m poor man. I don’t have money to spare for a streaming service when there are others that work perfectly fine! And in some cases, there isn’t even an option to PLAY the song! Total BS. Bring it back to the original and stop worrying about partnerships with apple. Please. Also!!!! This app seems to prioritize rap songs. Which I have literally nothing against, I listen to rap and it’s handy when I want the lyrics. But it’s not handy when I’m looking for a song that’s not as mainstream (which I also get is going to be harder to find, but when it’s buried underneath tons of rap songs that only have the lyrics of the worlds I typed in and that’s not the NAME, it gets annoying) I can’t find it! I can see are lyrical keywords, and not the actual song TITLES. Annoying. I get it helps, but have the songs titles first man.
I like very much
Update Removed Use 1/5
After removing the “Recently Played” feature, you are left with two choices: just google the lyrics or use this app’s broken search function. App serves no convenience or purpose now.
What you’re listening to feature removed... 2/5
I don’t know is it’s a bug or intentional but I can no longer see the lyrics of the songs I’m playing on my phone and it was the only reason I had the app
RECENTLY PLAYED!!!! 1/5
Please bring back recently played!!!!
