Keyboard issues 2/5
I love using the web browser of this app but when I decided to actually download the app, I can’t type anything. I tap on the search bar and my keyboard goes to the top of the screen and I can’t do anything. I’ve closed the app and reopened it, redownloaded it, but nothing :(
I think this app is great. But why do I have to sign in every time I open the app?? It's too tired to doing such meaningless thing. At least I want to keep my favorite lyrics at my page.
Most are so good! I just want these problems solved.
please fix sign in bug! 1/5
i love genius and this app but i can’t search anything because i’m spammed with itunes store password requests. why should i have to enter my password at all for a lyric site in the first place is kind of crazy, never mind having to do it every time i use the app.
i will happily update this review to 5 stars when this issue is resolved. thank youuu
Annoying pop ups 2/5
The app keeps asking me to sign in iTunes whenever I open it
Great But Frustrating. 4/5
Amazing website, but the App needs a lot of work. Way too many bugs, half the time I just use Spotify or Apple Musics lyric system because the Genius App messes up so much and it’s been like this for years. PLEASE FIX IT
No ‘Now Playing’ 3/5
When I’m playing music through Apple Music and open the Genius app. The now playing no longer pops up for easy access to the song lyrics. I have to search the artist and song up. Is this a bug or something that can be fixed? Or at least if it’s working make it more consistent with songs that play.

Awesome app! Please add spotify playlist support :)
Lacking compared to Android 2/5
The fact I can only use it with Apple Music and tunes from iTunes is really disappointing. I use Tidal and Google Play Music and can't even have my lyrics pop up while playing.
Love genius but app has some issues 2/5
I want to start off by saying that genius is by far the best lyrics website out there but there app is a little buggy. The main problem is sometimes the app just won't load lyrics. I will try to click on a song to view the lyrics and even though my internet connection is fast, it won't load the lyrics until I restart the app. Also, sometimes it just won't load search results for searched songs. All in all, genius is great, the app isn't.
Pretty good, search algorithm is garbage 2/5
The search algorithm is utter trash. It gives you the most irrelevant songs. Please develop an algorithm that provides relevant results.
Great but needs Spotify integration 3/5
This app is great, but is unusable if I can’t play the song through the app. Going back and forth is a pia.
Doesn’t live up to name 4/5
By Ned Klotz
I listen to billboard mainstream rock and when I search for songs it does not geniously recognize the most currently popular songs of the day first. I realize not everyone is in to mainstream rock but current stuff rather than stuff from 20 years ago plus should headline the search results. Now that type of logrythm would be real genious.
Concerning behavior 1/5
By Da Hippie Joe
I have had this app downloaded for a little over a year. I don’t use it terribly often but I use it. Recently every time I open the app it asks for my Apple ID password. That bugs me out. This app doesn’t need to know my password, I gave my password when I downloaded it. What is it doing with this information? Why does it need my password. This is concerning
Major Glitches 2/5
Used to be a great app, now it asks me for my apple password every few seconds, even after I’ve successfully entered it. It also won’t allow me to leave the app without entering it. Pls fix!
Asking for password 1/5
Everytime I open this app it ask for my apple password. It's annoying af
So annoying 2/5
Great app but I have to sign into my iTunes every single time I open it. To me this makes it not even worth it. I undownloaded it. Fix your app.
Music playing/other issues 2/5
This is an issue from the update. I used to listen to the full audio while looking at the lyrics but now I have to pay for the song first to listen to more than just 20 sec. Or something and that is stupid and annoying. Bring back the full audio!!!😡😤 And can I edit my profile picture or name because it's annoying not being able to change it. 😑🙄 Other than that it's fine.
Amazing but terrible glitch 3/5
Apple ID glitch is terrible but otherwise it’s pretty good.
would be 5 but... 3/5
the works great & is very accurate with lyrics but everytime i go onto the app it asks for my apple id password & i don’t know why. it’s annoying, please fix this
By Kayla Phanzu
I swear if it asks me for my apple id pass when I open genius again.
Apple ID 1/5
By Robby R
FIX YOUR STUPID APP. IT KEEPS ASKING ME TO SIGN IN TO APPLE ID
App is broken 1/5
Why do you have to sign into your apple account each time you open the app? Do any of you realize how useless and annoying that is?
Apple ID Issue 1/5
Forced to enter Apple ID every time app is opened. Practically unusable.
It’s ok 2/5
But I’m not about sign in to iTunes every time I want to use the app
My go to app but has been unusable lately 1/5
Every time I launch the app, it prompts for my Apple ID password… I enter it and then it continues to give another pop up asking for my password. I literally cannot use the app because the pop up never goes away.
Hopefully there will be a fix soon.
Cannot Suggest 2/5
There is a terrible glitch where when you write your suggestion, the keyboard will NOT go down, and you aren’t able to click the submit button. There NO button to make the keyboard go down, so now I can’t submit good info. Please fix this. (Device: iPhone)
Awesome app, annoying glitches 1/5
I love everything about the mission of this app and what it provides from lyrics, to verified lyrics and comments but my app prompts me to log in multiple times even after logging in and doesn’t let me actually use the app. Please fix this!
App doesn’t listen anymore 2/5
I used to be able to listen to music on iTunes and click on this app to find the lyrics without having to do a search. Now, the app will not automatically hear the song, and if I hit the icon to try to listen for my phone, it turns the music OFF to try to listen. That’s literally defeating the purpose of what I want!
Needs lots of work 2/5
Keyboard gets stuck when adding annotations. Can’t edit your profile. Who is achieving my comments. Why are there artist on my page with percent signs next to them.so much wrong with the app
Unusable for I don’t know how long anymore 1/5
Every time the app opens, I’m forced to enter my Apple ID. Makes this completely unusable because by the time I get in to the app, the song I’m trying to identify is long over.
Useful app 3/5
I use Genius daily, and the app makes it easy to view and annotate lyrics. I would really like the option to view album art and the ability to edit my profile photo within the app. There’s also an issue when I switch from the Genius app to another and back again, the song I had lyrics pulled up for will clear and I have to look the song up again—so less app refreshing, I guess?
Iphone accnt password 1/5
Why is it that everytime i open this app it asks for my apple accnt password?? why??? It really kills the vibe. Please fix this.
Having to type in Apple ID Password 😤 2/5
It’s extremely infuriating having to type in my Apple ID password each and every time I open the app. This has been going on for far too long without it being fixed already. Please fix this issue ASAP...
Worthless App, Use Website 1/5
If you click on an album, it shows the song names without showing who the songs are featuring. This makes the app worthless. Use the website instead by googling “INSERT ALBUM NAME genius”
genius for contributors 3/5
By butts lol
why cant i edit on mobile? why cant i see the contributors of a song on mobile? goddamn cant even experience genius on the app
A bug within the app? 2/5
I have to type in my Apple ID password every time I want to search a song... Why? Please, fix this issue.
Needs update 1/5
I’m getting tired of having to put in my apple password every time I open the app
Great app - wish it can be integrated with Spotify 4/5
I love this app. I am always curious about the meaning behind lyrics and what inspired the creation of a song. This app makes it easy for me to find out more information especially on the go. I just wish it could be integrated with Spotify. For instance, while I have Spotify open, I can open Genius and it can show the track that’s playing.
I actually found out about this app through Spotify because sometimes Spotify pulls info of the current track playing from Genius Just wish it worked both ways.
Minor inconveniences 2/5
Great over all app, but the search function isn’t to great, I can never find the song I’m searching for. Also the app constantly asks me for my iTunes password (for what exactly?) which makes it unusable. Please fix.
Community driven 1/5
This app was based off of community members downvoting and voting on the correct interpretation of the songs. These days individuals completely erase your annotations because they have more power, let the community decide with the votes instead of having someone have all the power.
Keeping it simple... 2/5
James Ingram died today. Seeking “I Will Be there”
Good for finding info about songs but an issue 3/5
Only issue is that comments aren’t showing up under songs so I have to go onto web browser or view on my computer to see comments people left.
The community aspect is a large part of genius and I’m disappointed that it doesn’t work on the mobile app.
Never loads. Do better 1/5
Even with a good internet connection, this app fails to load almost all of the time. Not good. Also, the search algorithm is pretty bad at finding the right song/artist, even if you have the right lyrics.
The most annoying update of all time 1/5
This ridiculous update makes me sign into my iTunes Store every time I open the app and will not stop until I sign in.. it’s beyond annoying
Minor but annoying bug 4/5
the app is really a great one but i don’t know why it always ask for my Apple ID password. Been happening for a while and i’m surprised it still hasn’t been fixed.
By Amo Bishop Roden
App doesn’t work, and keeps asking to log into iTunes. Over and over and over.
Try to go to their website instead...get redirected to the app.
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.
