To the developers! 5/5
Absolutely love the app! The one thing I’d suggest is adding an equalizer in your options menu! That would be absolutely amazing but still love the app you’ve got everything I look for and more keep up the good work!
Best streaming service with minor glitches 4/5
I'm really enjoying the Tidal streaming service, downloaded albums and curate playlist it's fantastic! My only gripe is recently songs aren't able to play. An ”error message” pops up and says ’The downloaded track has been damaged, please re-download album or track from playlist.’ That doesn’t work. Hope you guys can get this resolved, it’s been 3days now. Missing some of fave tracks.

The only reason I signed up with Tidal is because it’s a black business owned
There's no option to import my Playlist from another streaming source...
How is it still so buggy? 1/5
By Eric Sansky
Oh, I can tap on the cover art image of an album to view more information? Great! I can't tap that message, the cover art, or anywhere else on the screen to dismiss the message? Garbage.
Better than expected. still have to tweak a few things but its getting there. 5/5
don’t get me wrong, the app is great. while using it i rarely encounter any problems, app does need tweaks as far as downloading music goes, and quality of sound. if youre paying $20+ a month for an app that’s supposed to give you the best quality of sound, i have to tell the difference immediately, yet after using apple headphones and beats, sound is not much better than Spotify or Apple music. price definitely needs to be adjusted.
Killing my battery 1/5
FINAL UPDATE: After working with Tidal’s support team, they have given up, replying “there is nothing we can do from our end.” Tidal charges premium prices, but can’t create an app that doesn’t drain my battery from what they refer to as “a constant open network connection.” I guess I’ll check out Amazon’s new high resolution audio plans.
I generally like the audio quality of Tidal, but the app is killing my iPhone battery when no music is playing. I listened to tidal on the way to work yesterday, unplugged it from my car and put it in my pocket.
When I noticed my battery draining unusually quickly, I checked the battery report on my phone, and it said tidal had been working in the background for 6 hours! My commute is only 10 minutes! I can verify that it was not downloading any music or playing music while in my pocket.
I have background refresh turned off globally on my phone.
I hope this problem can be fixed soon, so I don’t have to manually close the app every time I use it.
Also, I wish you could download songs to a laptop, not just mobiles.
Additionally, it’s ridiculous that you can’t search for mqa content. Furthermore, the whole user interface is kinda of cheap for a product that’s this expensive.
UPDATE: I reinstalled the app, which deleted my downloaded songs. Everything worked as expected, with no battery use in the background. Once I downloaded songs, the problem returned, even when the download queue is empty.
AMAZING BUT NO 3D TOUCH! 5/5
We need 3D Touch feature to be able to add songs to playlists. Other than that the mastered quality is incredible. Best music app out.
Good ig 3/5
I mean the app is Ight like i don’t pay for it sense my phone carrier covers it but like the reason why I don’t use it as much is that for some reason the app likes adding random songs to my playlist and also their playlists for like different songs aren’t as good. One future that I would love so they can add is if the add the equalizer like in Spotify. I’d would definitely start using it even more if they had that future
Great support 4/5
I should say that I didn’t use the app for reasons but the support was amazing
Replied to my email so fast like I couldn’t believe that!
Btw you should pay for using the app!
Since it’s currently May 16 it won’t let me choose my real birthday (which is June 24). Just thought you should know.
Have to pay to play music 1/5
By AFROGUY135 XBOX NAME
Idk if I’m doing something wrong or it’s a bug but I can’t listen to music without paying so wats the point
Please get the cast worked out 1/5
Hi once again thank you for responding.
I don’t think you are clear on the issue and how to fix it. It is not an app issue that is inherent to my devices or instal. I have reinstalled, updated etc., and do not experience these casting problems with other more well functioning apps. Tidal simply is not designed well, by you, to work well at casting to chromecast. It can cast but does not allow the user to switch tracks most of the time without the casting continuing on whatever is was first initiated to do. Here are examples again. On other services you can switch, go back, do whatever no problem. On those services you can select a track in the middle of an album, press that track and it will cast and play the rest of the album from there. Tidal will not do any of the things I’ve mentioned. It will play an album through if you hit the button to play the whole album only, but it will basically never allow you to change your mind after a couple songs and then jump to another album. The app will do so, but it will not be able to tell the cast to do so, as it should.
Please address the real issue and stop trying to find ways to not do so. My sincere and appreciative apologies for sounding blunt, just want to get to the point and not waste time with these responses. Thanks for your efforts.
Updating to say it still works the same, it casts with issues frequently.
Please clean up your casting ability and integration. The other popular music streamer apps work beautifully. Tidal does not. It always disconnects, or simply doesn’t go to another track when casting. Please fix the casting! It makes for unenjoyable listening when you have to reconnect constantly and reestablish what you want to cast, especially if you want to switch tracks or whatever is going on.
It is too bad such a good music stream can’t be enjoyed well. Like I mentioned the other services work great and a listener can rely on a seamless stream if switching tracks or starting halfway through an album or just a steady connection to chromecast. I wind up having to use those because this just does not work as well on Tidal. If they can do it, you can too. Let’s do it! Hope it works out!
Here’s my old review. As you can see it’s the same story currently.
Please get the cast function worked out. It works terribly. It can stop mid album for example, often doesn’t cast the new track when switching tracks and disconnects from chromecast relentlessly. Other streaming services are far superior at this and have virtually no issue. Please correct it. Thank you!
Amazing AI + Human Curation 5/5
I’ve tried them all (or just about) and, as someone who refuses to listen to music on the radio because the playlists are so completely lame, I unequivocally have to say that the human and software power behind this service is stunningly good. I have never discovered this amount of stellar, new (to me) music in such a brief time, ever. The curation is fantastic with adventurous, wide ranging playlists to suit any taste while also driving you deeper into new, related sonic territory.
The AI is equally impressive as it seamlessly follows up on your listening. Of the new music chosen by the service based on my listening patterns, I’d say 85-90% seriously hit the mark (vs. 10-15% for the other services I’ve tried). I find myself constantly hitting “Add to My Collection” so that I can follower later on what the hell that great tune was.
And the audio quality is as good as it gets though it’ll cost you a bit more.
Stops working all the time 2/5
Constantly have to kill the app. The music just stops working and acts like it’s buffering with full strength LTE OR WIFI. happens almost every time I use it.
Honestly I’ve been a subscriber for about to years and have been double charged a few times also the auto pay is weird, it’s never a full month before they’re taking out money from my account I will cancel my subscription after this last bill pay because Im not willing to overpay for music I can stream on other platforms
Support us 5/5
By Ramel Jackson
Awesome platform owned by us 👌🏾👊🏾
When Jay Z blesses you with exclusive content and boom quality sound! 5/5
I have been with Tidal since he came out a couple of years ago, and in the beginning it was NOT even close to what it is now. They have much more artist and content on it. High quality sound, and the exclusives are so dope it makes Apple Music look like Amazon Music 🤷🏾♀️. I truly love that I get to see concerts that I wouldn’t be able to attend such as Made In America!
Crossfade glitch 3/5
By PRo Grader
I really liked the crossfade feature. Unfortunately the last two updates introduced a brief pause when the crossfade kicked in, making crossfade not blend as well. Please fix that pop/glitch sound.
Good but needs an equalizer 3/5
I love the app and the fact that I can play master quality audio files but there is no equalizer in the app from what I’ve seen and that’s something that’s important to me if it had one it would be a 5 star
Amazing app 4/5
I just wish it would put all the tracks in one category so i can play ALL of my music on shuffle
App Crashes Frequently 2/5
I have had tidal for a few years now and I have never had trouble with it until the last few months. The app crashes frequently and I constantly have to re-download my playlists to listen offline.
1 minor detail 2/5
This app is great. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because lately while I’m streaming music it will stop playing in the the middle of the song
So let’s just start off with the fact that I’m used to Apple Music. Now Tidal is a good app don’t get me wrong but I’m very VERY huge on organization. I have over 700 songs in my library. What I LOVE about Apple Music is that Apple Music puts all the artist music under their name in your library. Tidal doesn’t do that at all and that’s the only reason why I’m giving them 2 stars. Organization is horrible on here. I tried to get into Tidal I really did but until they can organize your offline library like Apple does, they’re going to stay at 2 stars! Even when I tried to sort through music by artist it’s still irritating. Please PLEASE change that!!!
Can we get clean playlist ? 5/5
And when I’m listening to a playlist I don’t like when it goes to radio and plays something randomly.( even when I’m offline )?
It’s cool especially in HIFI 3/5
For me it’s my favorite choice for music until I can’t find that one podcast or that one song I really want to hear. I love Tidal just wish I could upload video too in the fashion Rumble.com allows only because I feel Tidal is below average as a content app. It’s missing a community that makes it different from YouTube or Spotify I much rather pay for YouTube Premium because I also get the video upload as well as user created content without AD’s. HIFI listening is just not all I want or need from a content app anymore. Even Spotify & SoundCloud offer a niche service with the ability to stream my favorite songs on occasion. Tidal needs to come with something that can keep their app useful. If they offered a way for users to upload and monetize their videos and music I would Gladly pay $20+ per month for Tidal service. Tidal could easily be a app that lets you record and edit video and music to their service all from the phone.
Love it 5/5
Great Streaming Service 5/5
Truly enjoy all the media options and simplicity of the platform. Also knowing they’re doing the right thing by the artist. Appreciate the exclusive performances and releases.
Great Selection + Picks 5/5
By Addy Hugo
I am enjoying the selection of songs and artists.
My favorite app!! 5/5
Love it 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I had been with Google Play Music for 5 years and I decided to try Tidal (free) for a month. It changed everything. I find myself using Tidal way more. The interface is top notch, even though in the beginning they kept pushing rap and hip hop. I wound up missing it after the trial ended and I don't myself comparing Google Play to Tidal and I yearned to get a subscription. I finally convinced my family members to let me set them up with a Tidal Family subscription. I did it and have been super happy ever since. The sound quality is amazing and the UI is superb. Eventually, the push of rap and hop went away from my home screen as I built my library and the app learned what I liked. Definitely recommend, especially if you have a great car system and great headphones. ♥️♥️♥️
Tidal pays Artists 5/5
By Apple Watch Series 4 Nike+
that’s the only reason why i use Tidal. they pay the artists well.
BEST MUSIC APP 5/5
WORTH. IT. ALL the sound quality is amazing with the master quality now I’m so glad I switched to this app
This is a great music app!! 5/5
By nia mashelle
I love everything about this app but my only issue is a minor bug that happens when a new song plays... When a new song plays, I can the beginning of the next song for a quick second. It’s a bit annoying. Other than that everything is fine.
Masters & Curated Playlist are Top Knotch 5/5
Simply love having access to some Masters, even on the $10/month plan. The quality is great and provides an authentic experience.
Next is the curated playlist. They do a superior job of offering my favorites and undiscovered music that I actually like and save to my collection. Everyone knows that’s a tricky business and Tidal gets it right!
I love the music I use it to DJ At my gigs and very nice
Tidal please read 1/5
You shouldn’t let your customers pay for trials and make the app confusing
LOVE...it’s just one thing 5/5
First let me say that I LOVE Tidal! The music selections that come up are great and just the vibe I’m generally looking for (and usually something that I haven’t heard before). My only complaint is that you can’t follow other users playlist. That’s it. ☺️
5 stars is not enough!!!!!!!& 5/5
Tidal app is what I spent most of my time on. Far as I know they have everything but Tool. I’m sure it’s not cause Tidal forgot. Tidal when playing MASTER QUALITY sounds better than any streaming app I ever wasted my time on. Not all albums or artist are in MQA. But I love seeing that (M) beside a track or by an album. I’m so glad ISO finally got MQA. I knew they was working on it and the day I could play Tidal on my new iPhone XS Max an email was sent and I been blown away by every update and the awesome interface and of course all the music you can search for. Make sure you know they spelling of the band or you may think Tidal doesn’t have it. But sure enough they do. Do yourself all a favor go on and get Tidal HIFI/MQA!!! It’s the one that cost more. Not premium that one is not the best one. It’s still good but spend a few bucks more and listen to the sound!!!!!!!!! Can’t say enough. Jammin right now!!!!!’ Tidal is hands down the best app on my iPhone to date. Thank you to everybody at Tidal!!!!!
Amazing sound quality. Poor app performance. 1/5
Not worth paying more than Spotify or Apple Music. Avoid this platform unless you have Sennheiser Headphones lol.
Great Strides 4/5
Jeez. I remember when tidal just started the the album art was spinning. Man that was dope
But the only thing that prevents me rating tidal from 5 stars is the eq. I still think we should have a eq.
Other than; everything is fine. Sometimes it’s hard to stream MQA on cellular but I live with it.
App for Xbox and PlayStation 5/5
By kordei hing
Best streaming app Period 🤞🏿. I been with them for years they just need to make the app on Xbox and PlayStation that’s the only reason I still have Spotify 🤦🏽♂️
Good, almost great 4/5
I like the app. Missing a few features that I’ve found elsewhere. Making a playlist is too many steps. Have to add songs individually instead of being able to add mass amounts at once. Also if you download a featured playlist or album the songs don’t show up with the rest of your downloaded tracks to play. You either have option to play the album or the group of tracks. So you’d have to download the album then go back and add each track to your collection so it will show up to play with the rest of the individual tracks you’ve downloaded. Fix those few things and easily a 5 star app.
As for the service I like the selection and quality of music. I got it as part of a deal thru my carrier but as of now it still isn’t user friendly enough for me to switch over as my main streaming service.
Keeps saying session expired 5/5
I’ve never had an issue with the app until recently where it says “your session has expired, press ok to refresh” I press ok and nothing happens?? I checked billing and everything is ok, not sure what to do!
All fixed, back to loving my app!!
