Nothing like Rhapsody

This app is completely different from the Rhapsody app. It doesn't allow me to search within my music. There isn't a feature in playlists that allows one to delete duplicate songs so you'll have to go completely trough the list to modify it. There also isn't a minibar that allows me to use other programs without completely minimizing the app. Napster should have adopted Rhapsody's app for PC's. The mobile app is just fine.

It opens for a second, then immediately force closes. I've come back months later, no updates, still crashes every time, even after reinstall. Im a monthly subscriber, it works great on my phone, but this is garbage.

So Disappointed

I've been a Rhapsody/Napster subscriber since 2008. Back then, I used a Sansa clip MP3 player and loaded it with music. I loved it. Linked it to my PC and dragged and dropped hundreds of songs to it over the years. A couple of years ago, I ran an update to the new version and I've been disappointed since. After many attempts to drag songs to my player and 4GB expansion disc failed, I downloaded the app for my windows phone. It worked well until the latest Napster version. Now it constantly crashes, hangs and fails to open completely, until after many try's. Often times the live tile on my phone "grays out" and the icon on my start menu shows "Pending" and the app will not open at all, forcing me to uninstall and reinstall the app at least a dozen times. This app is garbage. It seems to have turned into a social media app more than a music app. I don't want to "share" or "like" or "follow". I just want to listen to music! I will be looking for another music service to use. Epic fail!

Napster Sucks!

The app sucks. Can't interface with my Sansa Fuze here or on their PC software anymore. What is the point?? I am canceling my Napster subscription and you should too!!

Less is not more

There is barely any functionality in this app. I don't see any way to put it on repeat, make it a mini player, etc. Am seriously thinking about cancelling my subscription or finding another player that will replace the current player.

Missing The Old Rhapsody App

The Rhapsody app was a bit glitchy, but definitely more usable. The user interface is more difficult, and little things that I used to take for granted like easily moving the progress bar are missing. I have some similar complaints with the operation of the mobile app, but the PC app is worse.

Can't sync to mp3 player anymore :{

I can't sync my music to my Sansa MP3 player anymore. Now it's just like the other streaming services... Subscription canceled.

Awful app

Been a subscriber for years, this app crashes and the download songs folders locks up continually. Tired of re downloading app. I'm finally cancelling membership due to this windows app issues - sad.

App for Windows 10 is unusable

As a subscriber since the beginning of Rhapsody, this app may make me want to drop my subscription. This app is unusable. I will give Napster a short period to fix this, otherwise I will find a replacement music app. Makes me very sad after being very loyal to Rhapsody for many years. It does seem, however, that the problem is really with Windows 10 since that is where the problem with DRM started. Whatever the source of the problem, I hope that windows 10 people and the people at Napster can get their acts together.

Where are the downloads!? Just a flashy POS!

I hope people have realized that streaming services are slowing taking our digital files away. I pay for this music, I should be able to place music wherever I want, including an mp3 player. If it isn't broken, leave it alone!
