Still has a ways to go 3/5
Like others have mentioned, the concept is great but in reality it’s been lacking. For years now. I have been a user/creator since 2012. SoundCloud seems to be putting more resources into making the advertisement experience more robust and less into the creators’ corner. One of the major features that is STILL missing is you still can’t view or reply messages from either app, you need to log on to a computer for that. I can’t mention how many times I’ve missed that feature and how many times I’ve read the same generic response from SoundCloud on forums regarding that missing feature over the years. You have 2 separate apps, I get it, but put a little more focus back into the creators side of things and I think a lot more people will be happy.
Doesn’t Show Important Stats 2/5
By Zarb Ebner
Even as a paying Pro Unlimited user, having uploaded over 400 songs (DESKPOP), I can’t even edit my albums/EPs/playlists from this, which can be extremely crucial on launch day for a release with more than 1 song. I ask for that, and the ability to filter notifications by type (specifically to see all recent comments (plus maybe the ability to reply to them)). I’m glad I can edit song descriptions, but I wish people listening on mobile had the ability read them...
I can’t record anymore. 3/5

Do I need to upgrade to start recording my guitar practice?
There’s a very BIG problem... 1/5
By Madigan dubstep
I got this over 2 years ago and it’s been going good, until recently. I have had so many issues where it would sign out and when I sign back in through google (only way I can) it keeps crashing, and crashing, and crashing. Please fix!
The real question 1/5
Can we post our music mobile instead of using the freaking computer like quit playing around it it’s a lot of people out here that want to manage more then play n fans it’s more to it
I like it buuuuuut.... 3/5
As with the others-no photo changes...? Or photo at all? A bit weak on this end. Completely agree with one person about needing ability to message people. I mean—it is an app—on a phone—with music to share/listen to/review/—so like social media in a way, no? Let me be able to tell another artist to keep it coming; or allow a fan to ask the track on a mix. Perhaps someone’s trying to book me-mane!!! Also it’s just good PR to be able to speak with your fellow creators and or followers. As for the profile info-sorry that bugs me. Actually so much so it got me to write this...(!) I write maybe one review for an app a year if that hahaha. Else, FR FR I dig it.
Need to be able to upload from App 3/5
I make my music on my phone (most of the time) since I am a ghostwriter for EDM/house/etc. I don’t mix down or master my tracks. Having to get on a desktop every time I need to upload is a hassle. Will recommend once this is a feature.
By Johnny Galaxies
It says I have three likes when I have around twenty something. Same thing with the listens I have nearly 5OO and it says I have 358. It worked for two days and was very useful. I would appreciate if you could fix that. I’m losing views and likes on some days too?? Like I had 13 and it dropped to 5 when I checked my account I still had 2O something. :(
The Facebook Login 3/5
Greetings developers! I really hope you see this and take this in mind. I am a Soundcloud user that had signed up using a facebook account and I am trying to get in using the facebook link. But there is a small problem; it wont let me. When i clicked this app open facebook the facebook link says that this app doesn't support it. Now i have an account using facebook as i said, so this would usually work. But there is something wrong. Please take this in mind! Thank you!
This is depressing to me cause I want to post my songs on the internet.
Dark mode please 4/5
I often find myself on my phone at night checking up on my plays. If the app developers would add a dark mode, I’m sure that would help me greatly and many others as well. Thank you :)6
Here's a suggestion: 3/5
By jxn / JBoozer
The app is pretty well laid out for when I need to catch up on stats and replies. My only concern is that it never asked me for turning notifications on, let's say, for if someone replied to you or your weekly update on stats overall. That would make this app so much more enjoyable and helpful. Without it, it just doesn't seem like what it should be.
Not good for iPad 1/5
I’m an iPad creator, and it’s so much better to use this website on my chrome browser; the app appears on my iPad as though it’s an iPhone screen, so there’s no point in me using it. The website works well on my browser though, so no complaints about SoundCloud as a whole, just this app.
Can you make one for iPad
So all of a sudden it doesn’t let me sign in to my account. It just keep putting me at the sign in screen. 🥴 And you cant really update anything like pictures . You can’t upload tracks . You can only change the name on a song. Can some one help me out with the sign in . What do I do
Would be good if it had messages 2/5
By Tbone the Dj
I just don’t understand why they can’t add the ability to respond to your messages from other musicians/listeners like you can on computer :(
Editing Profile 2/5
By Almighty ViBe
You Should be able to edit your profile just like the desktop version it’s starting to get annoying please fix it
No way Jose 1/5
Why in God’s name would you have a creator app where you can’t even upload a track? It’s bonkers.
Technically difficulties 1/5
I deleted the app for more space then once I got more space I tried to redownload the app it says open even though I don’t have it in my phone. Still won’t allow me to redownload
How you have 2 apps for soundcloud and not one is useful?? None of them lets you view messages
There is a Problem 5/5
By Wouldnt recommend
Cant delete my track on the app
How do you get a promo?
I would give it 5 stars buuuuut... 4/5
You can’t update cover art when you edit a song and I feel that you should.
Can’t sign in with Google 1/5
Can’t sign in which means I can’t use the app.
Doesn’t work... 1/5
By Alex Wayes
I don’t mean to knock the app but there’s not much you can do with it. You can’t update your profile or change your name or anything. It’s super bland and NOTHING WORKS. This whole app needs a new overhaul.
here’s a few suggestions 4/5
By matt (noted)
when it comes to providing a convenient source of live updates to a song and it’s plays, liked, reposts, and comments. pulse provides top notch analytics that are easy to understand. however, some of soundcloud’s key components for producers are missing. an example of this would be mail between users on soundcloud. just provide another icon at the bottom of the screen that looks like mail. i can imagine this feature being programmed like regular email, or instagram DM’s providing basic reply and link functions. another issue im confused as to why it isn’t available is the option to change your photo / cover art for both your channel / page and the individual track art. most users have their photos for common use on their phone, so providing the option could mean easier access to having a better looking photo, and would save the producers or singers a lot of time, especially when on the go.
i hope you all can try to improve this application for your users and take these suggestions into heavy consideration!
I am a mobile app developer who never writes reviews 3/5
I’ve worked on one of the biggest apps in this store... Why in the world is this separate from the original app? Hell you could have had a modal webview popup within the original app just showing stats. There is zero reason for this to be separated. Whoever is planning your products, consider their decisions.
EDIT: changed to three star in case there’s something truly preventing them.
Sign in with google not working 2/5
By D.A.H., Jr.
Sign in with Google not working
To many ads 1/5
By l.a. henry
I love SoundCloud been using it sense for a while an over time I’ve noticed that before there were hardly Any ads interrupting your time on the app then it changed and you would see ads more often.. now the app is playing ads like crazy, there around 30 seconds each and you can no longer skip through them i know on paper it 30 seconds doesn’t sound that bad but imagine your in a vibe an after every song there’s a 30 second ad you can’t skip through it’ll kill the vibe significantly an it’s only to get the users of the app to pay for SoundCloud plus STOP BEING GREDDY!!
Nothing works 1/5
By Cigarettes and beer
Can’t upload or edit profile.
It’s alright 3/5
I get my stats, my plays per week (or any time period) and I get notifications, but there’s more things this app should be able to do. Messages is a big thing for me, so I look forward to seeing messages being implemented into a new app or this one soon
Stopped letting me view my fan base area
You have to have iTunes I’m pretty sure. I don’t know how to use this but I don’t wanna spend money on iTunes. And I know there is other apps. But I’m not allowed to have them. Thank you for reading
Should do more 3/5
This app does not allow you to edit artwork or your track on your page. It does give insightful statistics of your music and provides the ability to keep up with fans but that’s it.
Fix bugs add messages 2/5
Fix the bug that when u scroll through your likes it starts showing the same name over and over and add messaging
What’s the point?? 1/5
By Aly Metz
This app is pretty much useless!!
Can’t change the PHOTO of a song
Can’t see follower list.
I also feel like it’s missing other things
What changed?? 2/5
I like this app it helps me grow a fan base but right now it is displaying on pulse I have 217 followers on SoundCloud. When I check the mobile of the app and the desktop version it says I have 222. Than also when i scroll down the activity feed I get to a certain part where a user republished three songs of mins and it keeps displaying it over and over that he republished the 3. Than the app seems to start glitching and all the words disappear off the screen. Can you guys please help me so it stops crashing and displays The right number? Than I’ll rate this 5 stars because I like the app but not if it isn’t gonna work right
I don’t want to write it 1/5
I hate the app just because I can’t sign in and I wrote my right email address but u always say that it’s wrong 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😤😤😤😤😭😭😭😭😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞😞
Missing 1 thing 3/5
Everything seems pretty good but HOW DO I UPLOAD TRACKS. I go to upload beats I go to SoundCloud pulse the beat isn’t there!!!!! Make it easier to upload tracks or show us a way to.
The app doesn’t even work 1/5
I waited a week to see what tracks I play the most and after a week I go into the app to see my Soundcloud stats and nothing was there. The app doesn’t even do what’s its supposed to do smh just delete this off of the App Store.
What’s the Point??? 1/5
By Just in Kace OG
I downloaded this app so I would be able to interact with my followers and edit my page. This app does neither of those things. I can see insights, but if I want to thank someone for following me or liking a track I am unable to do so. Furthermore, I cannot edit the photo on a track nor edit any of the information. This app is pointless. I do not care about insights. I care about my music and interacting with my fans. Fix!!!
Not really useful 😕 1/5
To be honest, when I saw this app I thought it would help update your profile because that is the whole reason why I downloaded it. There’s really nothing to it, it’s just notifications and other stuff. Please don’t get mad at me (this is just an opinion) I think it would be better if you could edit your profile on this app.
Adubb the Goat 3/5
By adubb the goat
Need to make SoundCloud & SoundCloud Pulse to where you can change pictures on a phone & not just a desktop, other than that. Great app to look at your statistics.
Update the user interface and make profile editing simple 1/5
This is poorly thought out, I have no ability to edit profile name nor photos for albums. I have no ability to do this over a phone browser, nor does it clearly state any of this. Take some of the advertisement money and put it into hiring a new U.I. manager and a couple of hungry coders. This is a serious hassle when you have new musicians who'd rather be making 🎶 than writing reviews. I appreciate the hard work but this app and the entire UI needs to be seriously rethought. Good luck🤙🏽
no info anywhere 2/5
i tried to report a bug but there is no contact info anywhere, their "security vulnerability program" has been "discontinued" and there is nothing that has to do with bug and error reports on the help section of the soundcloud site.
that being said, i have had the pulse app for over a year on ipad, always up to date, and never has it shown the app's icon in the apps, it just shows the empty lines chart icon.
other than that, i agree with the others that similarly to youtube creator studio this app has barely any features for it to be called a creator tool, in my books just title/description/privacy editing is far from enough.
what's funny is media sharing sites like this ask you and sometimes even force you to use their apps, having their mobile version website lag far behind and be highly incompatable with mobile web browsers, but at the same time their apps provide almost none of the options that their websites provide for creators, limiting the creators' and their own potential. 5/5 stars for the concept, 1/5 stars for its implementation.

Listen to cat66666 🗣🗣🗣
