Soundcloud has always managed to have a pretty respectable app across platforms, and the latest update to their mobile app keeps that tradition going. The app has been revamped with a new UI that uses the sliding panes we’ve seen in many apps as of late. It not only looks great but more importantly, it works great. Smooth and fluid describes it nicely. Aside from the UI change, Soundcloud did manage to add in a few new features as well that improve the experience as well:
- Hear, favorite, repost and comment on sounds shared in your Stream
- Record your own sounds with one touch and share to Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr
- Includes optional Record Widget for the home screen
- Lock screen playback supported
The core features remain as well, they’ve just been improved. Searching for music, following artists and discovering new music with the app is better than ever. According to Soundcloud, over 10 hours of music & audio are posted every minute to their services so alas, you can take Taylor Swift or whatever it is the cool kids are listening to these days off repeat and go out and discover some new music.
