Such a better way to listen to music

Pandora was nice for a while, but when you keep hearing the same songs over, it gets as annoying as the radio. 8Tracks is really cool because it lets 'normal people' make playlists; instead of robots. Then, when I click on a mood or a genre, I know that someone else was feeling that way and thought these songs fit well. Normally, it's spot on. If it's not, there's a lot more to choose from and I love that. I get bored really easily and I've never gotten sick of finding new music on this app. Seriously, changed how I listen to music. <3

Could be better

If I am being honest I just wanted someone to take the place of Songza. All the playlists were made by a community of people. Most of the people fit into a single group and it is shown in the plethora of music provided for certain kinds of genres. It switches to different playlists so more than likely (maybe 80-90% of the time) the genre playing will be completely different than the one you wanted.

8tracks not available outside US and Canada

Apparently 8tracks will only work in US and Canada and is unable to stream outside of those countries. [The concept of 8tracks is great, but if the app never wants to play anything, it's quite useless.]

Love 8 tracks but this app isn't the best

I absolutely love 8 tracks and the community. I just got a new laptop and downloaded the app today but unfortunately, I can't use it or even sign on. Links don't work inside the app and its pretty much just a dark screen. Hope this gets fixed because 8 tracks is awesome. I'll be using it on a browser instead.

Great when It works.

I am pretty sure I have had to reinstall this app about 15 times in the last 6 months. On multiple computers with different configs. It works fine, then the next time you start it up, nothing works. Uninstall, reinstall rinse and repeat.. works fine for a week, then nothing. Give up, just using the bloody web interface now.

Great, but needs a few improvements.

I really enjoy 8tracks. I listen to it most everyday and have fun listening to playlists. I feel like you should be able to check the history and actually play favourites. Is that just a problem with my computer? I also feel like there should be a functional pause button, seeing as space bar works on the actual website I also thought it would work on the app. But I was wrong. There is also a problem with the tags, but it is tolerable. I recommend this app to everyone because of the variety of different music but like most apps there are quite a few problems.

Looks nice but where's the keyboard shortcuts?

I enjoyed using 8tracks web player for a while now. Recently started using it again on my work laptop with Windows 10 and figured I'd look for a mini player I could keep posted in the corner of my screen. Unfortunately, it's not very mini and even worse, I could not discover a way to pause using the keyboard. Had a pretty similar issue with the Chrome Desktop App as well. The web player actually works the best for quick play/pause actions. I'd give 5 stars to 8tracks as a platform but 2 stars to this app for usability, or lack of.

Great!

Absolutely loving the playlists! I've been listening for two hours straight, and so far I think I've only skipped maybe two or three songs. That never happens with other internet radio stations! App is smooth and responsive, with a friendly user interface. Looking forward to testing the mobile app when I ditch my iPhone 4S for one of the new Win 10 models.
