Tidal is BS 1/5
After getting a premium subscription I was surprised to see that tidal has no original songs from the 80's .. when I played their 80's playlist not even one song was original and all of them were covers done by stupid people .. am I missing something here ??
Not Worth It 1/5
Quality of music on paid subscription is far worse than Spotify. Also make it impossible-literally-to cancel from your mobile device.
A lot of my friends have androids and can use it for free but I have an iPhone and it’s making me pay for it. I’m not sure if that’s fair. I can’t do anything without paying for it but other apps I can at least use some music but there’s not as much variety as Tidal.
Easily the worst music streaming app
App works 40% of the time 2/5
With recent update, my app frequently has trouble loading even my music the I’ve saved for offline listen. Constant buffering or error messages make it impossible to use
NOT WORKING 3/5
By Awesome shane
This app isn’t working I don’t know if anyone is having that problem but it’s taking forever to load like all I’m seeing is the loading circle and and loading tidal logo and it’s annoying asf. My WiFi is working and everything I deleted the app and now it’s telling “unable to activate tidal account” so I don’t know what’s going on but please fix this ASAP
Find something else 1/5
Short story: looking for a music app? Start elsewhere....This app will bug out and not play on cellular, only on WiFi or downloaded tracks. It happens often and sometimes for weeks at a time. I’m sure it doesn’t happen to all else no one would use it. I’ve been to lazy to find a replacement but I’m at my breaking point. If it was reliable, the track library is great. But fact is it doesn’t do what I pay for.
No longer works with Apple Watch 2/5
With WatchOS5 I can’t change tracks from my phone anymore. Please fix!!!
Just keeps spinning 3/5
Ever since my app updated, whenever I try to play music, it just keeps spinning like it’s buffering. Doesn’t matter if it’s on WiFi or using data
Recent Update is Terrible 1/5
The history queue deletes when I play I new artist or song, and plays their whole album. I really dislike it. I have to constantly search who I want to play next. Before I could just scroll up in the queue and play who I want. Worse update!
Playlist keeps reverting to previously played song 2/5
Every time I play songs on my playlist I run through a ton of songs. The next time I launch the app I expect the playlist to begin where it left off - instead it always reverts back to the song where I started the previous time I played with the exact same playlist that I heard previously despite this supposedly random selection. And the next time. And the next time. Until I hit shuffle again. Which would be fine but then I never am able to completely shuffle through my entire playlist.
This never happened before the last update. This is a bug that must be corrected because it is nonsensical.
New Update Version 2.5.5 1/5
Bad update as it now limits your options. Cannot add anything to the queue and previously played tracks disappear when you do try adding or playing another song/playlist.
This was not a good update and would very much appreciate bringing back the last version’s format.
Play next/add to play queue removed with last update 5/5
Written Sept. 18, 2018. The last update removed the option to add to play queue and play next for playlists when choosing from the saved or created playlists and from the home page. Please fix
Worst EVER!!!!! 1/5
Tidal was sooooooooooo good before you guys messed with the play queue and shuffle. If I add a song to a playlist once the song is done it’s deleted and I have to search for it again. When I want to shuffle my playlist a random playlist I probably played by accident pops up and I can no longer hear the songs from the playlist I was just in. This has to be the WORST update known to mankind in the history of Tidal. Please fix it I’ve had Tidal since the beginning and I do not want to change my steaming service but I think I will have to. Why fix something if it ain’t broke?
App not working!! 2/5
Anybody else having a issue with their app?
Could use an update for customizing personal playlists. 4/5
By 45 hauss
It is a good music platform. An update that would make this app a lot better, would add more features for personal customization. An example would be to have an playlist sort option. Also an automatically generated playlist with every downloaded song in the consumers library.
Track radio problem 3/5
I hate this new update!!! I like it better when I can start a track radio from the song I choose instead of a random song
Great, but just one flaw... 5/5
Honestly I’ve tried all three of the big music streaming services. They’re all amazing but Tidal just blows my mind with how good it and comparing this to Spotify it’s ahead of it in many aspects. But I just wish the animation would transition better between the song/podcast/video you’re playing from to the suggest tracks as it seems really rough. That’s the only issue I see with it though as I haven’t found much else to complain about. This is a really good music service and I hope this succeeds cause I’m going to use this over Spotify and other services for music.
it was all good just a week ago 2/5
This was my first go to music app and also support people to download it as well, subscribe and payment . These past 2 weeks since there new update I haven't been able to play any new music . I only can play songs that was already saved and played before or added to playlist of favorite before the update. If I can't get any music to play by next week and I will just delete my subscription and stop next automated payments . Why should I pay for something I cant use or play music on !
Just a one thing 4/5
By Epic Man is Awesome
Tidal is great, the design and service is amazing. There is only one issue that I wish Tidal could fix. Can you please add some sort of highlight on the specific song you are viewing so when I am scrolling through a playlist I can locate it easily. You have it on desktop just please add it to the mobile. Other than that, I love Tidal and the quality is amazing.
Bad music quality 2/5
Tidal I use to love the app, but lately the music quality has been terrible, the volume is sooo low I thought it was my radio or my phone but it’s the app. And the freezing is supper annoying Iv uninstalled the app and re installed it, Iv done all the update and it still has issues.
Search bar!! 4/5
I've recently started using tidal again and so far I love it, I just wish you'd add in a search bar so you could simply search songs only in your playlist/collections. It would be much easier than having to scroll through what feels like thousands of songs or having to go online to find a song.
This would be especially useful in offline mode.
Play Queue 1/5
Agree with the other posters. Was a descent service and app before. Losing the play queue has made this app useless. It takes too much time to create a playlist for everything you want to hear.
Removing the play queue and adding song credits was NOT the update we needed. Consider other streaming options.
Oh my god what happened 1/5
Wow sad downgrade: I was by email informed they actually consider ruining the so now so called “history” cue that was the golden goose of the tidal listening experiences.. very disappointed
Oh man triple confirmed!??? :(
I offloaded and even had to erase my whole collection and the app now forced the history cue erased on every song you search or recent song you press.. no offense but terrible decision jay z man this is terrible no offense to whoever in the boardroom or app room who did or thought this was a great idea.. I can’t stand this or use it :( it was happening yesterday and today a bug fix was available I hoped you caught this but it’s still there?? Who is claiming to be fixing the app they aren’t even looking at how it’s working apparently
Confirmed: the most useful thing about the tidal app is corrupted or now useless. I search a track click it and it considers it the only song on your history cue. Way too inconvenient and a design mistake on every level. No one is going to keep hitting the three dot button for every history list song they need added. This renders the history cue when you swipe right useless and painfully erased . Why this change? Very sad I relied on this so bad...
Everything was pretty much hunky-dory except a few gripes but wow even after two updates the worst thing is happening your history play Cue which is the pinnacle point of your app is completely failing to hold the songs I cannot get an enjoyable experience to play my playlist history now ;( please fix it I love this app. I’m so sad how come they’re just erasing I can’t keep up with my music discovery that way I might not pay for this app this was happening before the update so I came here and updated and it still happening ;(
I previously watched a YouTube video comparing original audio master files to Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and YouTube and was surprised that Tidal was ranked top. I’ve been with Spotify for well over a year and is or was my go to streaming platform. I spent a good hour comparing Spotify and Tidal and I gotta say Spotify doesn’t compare. Tidal audio is cleaner and I don’t hear that high piercing sound like other platforms. Other than the price for the HiFi sub and some cellular connection issues I’m definitely going to make the switch.
Fix the Play Queue 3/5
I never write a review because if I don’t like the app I just delete it. But I really like Tidal had it for years now. I’m going to need you guys to bring back the old Play Queue and I know you guys know exactly what I’m talking about. I do not have the time in making a playlist and I like having all the songs I like in the Play Queue it’s easier to click on when I’m busy instead of going to search for years for a song. So fix it.
Updated**Been with them since the start 2/5
Where is the PLAY QUEUE?!?! *** On the play queue can you guys change the ‘x’ for deleting to a swipe? It’s really hard to delete a song in the queue without accidentally changing the track*** I've been using Tidal for about 2 years now. I pay for my subscription though their website to save some money on taxes. I've seen lots of changes for the better and can't wait to see what else they do. I am really hoping they make this an online community soon! I want all users to have profiles so I can find my musical matches. I also want to see what celebs are listening too more in depth, I should mention I love he exclusive playlists! I think Tidal is great and I'm hoping to plan some business ventures with them in the future!
Great 👍🏻 4/5
Hi quality music, app is well designed (every artist and album in playlists not auto into your albums and artist only ones you favorite), CarPlay is buggy, no library gaps (home page is skewed rap and can make ya feel left out but when you search everything is available and more than others), good karma that artist actually make substantial more per play but still a few dollars pricing for hifi.
Overall love it
I want to like you...I really do 1/5
By Long-time Tweeter
I really want to like tidal. But the amount of bugs in this app is upsetting. Constant crashing makes for a terrible user experience.
Great quality...when it works 2/5
I constantly have trouble with Tidal not advancing songs, not playing, and things in the app not working like basic search on my iPad.
WiFi trouble 2/5
It’s a good app but there’s a bug were you can’t listen to music on 4G/LTE and that’s really annoying I shouldn’t be paying a membership and I can barley listen to the songs I want to please fix it.
App is too slow 1/5
It takes way too long to play a song when using data and now the app is slow under WiFi as well. I have a 4G phone so I don’t see why I have this problem. Waiting 20 minutes for a song to play is ridiculous
I CANT SEE MY QUEUE!!!!!!! 1/5
By Terroe Jordan
PLEASE FIX THIS I CANT SEE THE SONGS I PREVIOUSLY PLAYED IN MY QUEUE.
For all the money I’ve given to this app, it’d be nice to have loading times for streaming faster. Lately my streaming hasn’t been working at all and my download queue never actually downloads anything either- it just indefinitely “downloads”.
Great quality 4/5
Amazing sound quality... only issue is the song titles and album artwork don’t always load? Sometimes I don’t even know what’s playing because it doesn’t match up with the title claiming to be playing! Please fix this, because I really love the app..
Just curious 2/5
Why is Facebook advertising a free trial for 6 months and when you click link it ends up saying 30 days ?? Kind of false advertising ; I wanna attempt to try this over Apple Music but I at least wanna be told the truth from the beginning
good app but for some reason now i can’t leave songs in my play queue? like they just instantly delete which is annoying if you want to go back to a song you listened to a few songs ago
Great App But stopped working 4/5
Tidal is a very great app to stream music on but all of a sudden, none of my music plays anymore. I’ve tried redownloading and uninstalling the app. Nothing is working.
Thrives on hype, overrated. 2/5
I spent 1.5hrs testing the sound quality against Spotify. There are no noticeable differences. Spotify in most cases sounded better with and without the equalizer.
Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio III: Spotify
Bose QC 35 II: Spotify
Onkyo TX-NR545 7.2: Tidal
I played all different genres at all different volumes, with and without equalizers. The difference is just not noticeable enough to justify such an overinflated price. Where Tidal does really excel is with loud audio, it never gets distorted.
Unless you own a state of the art studio, have a Dolby Atmos theatre system or $1000 sennheisers, this isn’t for you.
THIS ALL IS A TIDAL RIPOFF.
Love Tidal but app is missing crucial feature 3/5
Tidal is my favorite streaming platform. Quality is perfect. However, the app needs to have a way to search your downloaded music offline. I download most of my favorites to use them on the go so I don’t eat up my data. But every time I’m offline, I have to scroll through all my albums, songs, or playlists rather than just typing in what I’m looking for. This is a major time waster. Tidal developers, please add this feature!
Latent Malware due to inferior IT department 1/5
Tidal offers amazing sound quality and a comprehensive music library for such a new company However as a warning to all iPhone users, this company's IT department is also relatively small and inadequately trained as to how to protect their digital content from corporate espionage and viruses from the likes of competitors whom have an incentive to see them fail. If you keep this app on your iPhone long enough it WILL compromise your security.
I like it 5/5
I like it so far but the only things that are missing are more songs and an equalizer, i moved from Spotify so i got used to having the luxury of being able to equalize and the variety of songs Spotify had to offer but other than that the app is great.
Won’t load music 4/5
Great app but sometimes it just doesn’t load the music when I have a perfectly good connection. I think these are server issues.
I love this app, I’ve had it for some time now. I’ve noticed that the shuffle/un-shuffle button adds all the listened content back into the content I want to readjust and it’s incredibly frustrating. Is there something you can add so that doesn’t happen?
Streaming pause 1/5
Needs to fix the ongoing issues with random streaming pauses. It says there’s no network connection when it is clearly one
Good but some problems 4/5
By Moses Playz Roblox
Well, I use Tidal because its my fav music thing. but it crashes and sometimes when i press play it wont do anything except sit at 0:00. I still like it though :P
PLEASE FIX THE QUEUE 5/5
Love the app been using it the past three years and never switched to a different music service. Literally ALL my music is in tidal because that’s how much I love it. Never had a problem until now. I can no longer add songs with the “Add to play queue” function which is super useful (you can add songs to play after the one currently playing and it’ll keep them in there). I noticed the feature is gone and now you can only play consecutive songs if they’re in a playlist. This suuuucks because I really relied on the play queue it’s so easy to use and organize and it keeps the songs in whatever order they were played in!!!! AND you can even rearrange them and it’ll keep them in the order you place them!!!! Please fix!!!! Keep the app amazing!!!!
Since new update buffering songs forever! 1/5
By metro elevator
Won’t play music unless it’s downloaded. Can’t stream any music!!😡😡
Network error? 3/5
Hello , I have the iPhone X & since the last two updates I cannot set up a play que . It will say network error if I’m not on WiFi , which makes no sense because my cellphone service is still on ! Please fix.
Fix This App 1/5
Music does not play. It continues to buffer endlessly. And customer service is a joke. They don’t respond to anything. Don’t waste your money with these people. And stop commenting in the review section on here. Go out and fix the problem. tidal wastes too much time with having people email them and not getting anything done.
