What a lousy business model

Even being a premium subscriber is a drag using the win phone app. It just feels like a struggle to use any of the features I am paying for. For example caching an album, I need to mark the album for download, then 'refresh albums', then 'refresh playlist' and maybe it will download, usually takes a couple of tries. And there is no auto refresh of stations at night. I just don't understand how a business could be run so poorly. When I used the android app it was a bit smoother but always had problems with bluetooth. I have stuck with them for so long because of the UK stations. However it looks like they are not interested in producing a decent product. Time to give Spotify a try.

Little choice or control, just tells you to upgrade to premium like any con job. Suggestion: Do not con, just spell out the options and respect your costumers.

Must Subscribe To listen

Really upset that it was broken for a long time. They fix it so it was going good for a while and now no longer free to listen back to the drawing board!

No Longer Free on Windows 10

Great app that I used almost every day. Today it cut in with a special announcement: "Hate to break it to you, but you will no longer be able to use the free app on your device. Upgrade to premium or go to slacker". This is quite disappointing since I believe it's still free on Android and iOS. I have a message of my own for Slacker: "Hate to break it to you, but I'm deleting your app and switching to Spotify."

This is trialware

While the app doesn't nag you to purchase the upgrade and there is no time limit for using the app it's very clear they want you to subscribe to the service. The app stops playing after one or two songs, then you have to hit the play button again. I had considered purchasing a subscription, but if this us how the app functions I'll just drop the app and service altogether.

Windows 10 issues

I've been a Premium subscriber for many years. I've loved this app forever. It's the best music app for my needs. The app isn't functioning properly with my Lumia 950. The song won't display via Bluetooth when it changes, and lately the app will only play one song, then stops playing, regardless of wether the app is open, closed, or running in the background. I hope there's a fix soon.
