Roland Munsil's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/8/18 6:30 PM
I can usually only get it to play one song before it crashes. Basically completely useless
ps444444444's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/4/18 6:45 AM
I bought this app because I wanted to create playlists of music that I am learning and want to practice with, and that I have stored all over the place. This app does that very easily, ... PLUS you can slow down (or speed up) playback of songs, which is great when you’re learning something new. Luv it!. (Don’t be cheap, buy the pro version.)
R_B_99's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/28/18 3:01 AM
I went ahead and bought this app because I got tired of what Apple Music does to my music (replacing my mixes with their mixes.) What I liked about this app is the ability to have gapless playback, which is hard to find...but, the gapless on this app has issues. When I play some of my gapless albums, the gap is still there (even though they play gapless on my iPod) - and other gapless albums will play gapless, but they cut off the prior song about a millisecond too soon - so it kind of ‘skips’ into the next song, rather than a smooth gapless transition. If these issues can be fixed, I will give this a 5 star - but as it is, I don’t think it was worth the $4.99.
jeff_athletic's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/27/18 7:58 PM
Even though I use streaming services, I still buy music, and I store my mp3s on OneDrive. Once Microsoft dropped Groove Music on iOS and Android, I needed to find a good cloud player to play (stream or download) my OneDrive music. I tried a lot of them, but most of them had shortcomings. But not Cloud Beats. It ticks all the boxes- easy connection to my cloud, great library organization, great playback controls, great integration with phone, beautiful, easy to use UI, and excellent sound quality. I couldn’t be happier with Cloud Beats. In fact, I’m glad MS dropped Groove Music player for iOS, because it forced me to find Cloud Beats, and it’s MUCH better.

Appmonsterchick's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/15/18 9:43 PM
I was looking for an app to use to play an offline playlist of songs from independent artisti for a work function. I tried several apps but they were either too clunky, had very annoying ads or wouldn’t allow me to use local files that weren’t already in iTunes. Cloudbeats works perfectly. Uploading the files to Dropbox or OneDrive was easy. I had a question and their tech support got back to me with an answer (including screen shots) very quickly. I highly recommend Cloudbeats!
DenyNoGuest's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 9/10/18 3:13 AM
It’s a great app. It’s missing a few things that would make it the best, though. The ability to edit metadata in-app would be fantastic. The ability to automatically upload from Google Drive without having to play the music first is essential. An equalizer and a volume normalizer would make this app the best. I would pay more for stuff like this.
TheAngryGM's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
As said, I was looking to replace MS Groove so I could access the music stored in my OneDrive on the go. This works great. It’s stable, pulls music from many different cloud storage services, and is even compatible with my Hyundai’s Apple CarPlay system. Zero complaints.
ipadfilmz's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
Solid music playing app. Works best if you use a music tagging program to tag your files with metadata (title, artist, cover art, etc) for this app to use to sort your music into genre’s, by artist, whatever. Had trouble with the app being able to synch all files on a google Drive, better function on Dropbox. Main problem: takes way too long to cue up a track. If you play an album start to finish its fine, but if you want to bounce around and play random songs, the app takes 20-30 seconds to cue up each track. Very choppy. If the app were updated to play tracks quickly it would be much better. Need to be able to pick a track, tap “play” and have the track play instantly. Not happening here.
Tekka787's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
Unlike the other cloud best systems that I use where sometimes the songs that I previously had disappeared, that’s not the case with cloud beats. Although it is a simple UI, the concept works. I upload my music to a cloud drive and then I’m able to access it on any iOS device that I own. I really recommend this simple and useful app.
Valiant Eli's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
This is my music app and I like it but it has taken a lot of work to get it functioning smoothly. + I am generally happy that I’m in control of music now and able to listen to old mp3s. + developer Roman is very responsive - you have to give app access full access to a cloud drive, which is unnerving. I ended up getting a cloud storage service for music alone (onedrive). - tried Google drive first but it loses your metadata somehow which makes your library all messed up when pulled into cloudbeats. - can only save *playlists* on three types of cloud drives which is frustrating because I would have to give access to two different cloud drives (can’t store playlists on onedrive.) - interface is just a little glitchy. - have a big library and it’s taken a lot of massaging my metadata to get my library looking right.
dannymyboi's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
Fails to sync larger folders. I have roughly 60 gb of music from my dropbox and the only way i was able to sync was by individually downloading the subfolders. I tried running the synchronization over night, but it got stuck “searching for files”.
pholly's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
This is without a doubt the best music player on the App Store if you’re looking for a way to access music files on your cloud storage. I’ve tried at least 5 other apps that tried to do the same thing and they all had a horrible flaw. The only thing this app is missing is an equalizer but it does everything it needs to do wonderfully well and also has a great user interface and layout.

Jkk95's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I have nearly 30 thousand songs in my google drive library, and while it locates then all with ease, it’s trying to process them all right now on my 6s, one by one... it’s going to take a lonnnnggg time. This is a GREAT app if you small library, and the last.fm support is totally great! I bought it for that. But this updating business is really going to eat up a lot of my time, processing power, battery, etc. Consider this app if you have a library closer to like 1,000 songs or less. Otherwise it’s a great app!
Nosirrahm's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
3/25/19: I use Cloudbeats exclusively for audiobooks. It’s great for all my offline audiobook files. I do have a couple of issues which could be annoying. They are not consistent but they exist. I started to listen to an audiobook that I listened to previously. The first issue that popped up was that it holds previous playing positions for a long time so when I finish one file of the audiobook it will jump to that random position in the next file. I’ll be all confused because the story is not making sense because the story continued from some random spot in the next file (it held the place from when I paused the book a year ago even though I did finish the book it just holds this cached place). Another issue is that sometimes it will jump to a random file in the book or replay the file again. I don’t have any of those options selected - random play or repeat - it just does it when it wants. I’ve cleared the cache thinking it would drop all those old previous “bookmarked” areas. I will think its fixed until it happens randomly two files later. 🤷🏽♀️ Previous Review: I enjoy this cloud player to play MP3s from DropBox. I probably use this over any other streaming on my phone. There has been an issue with trying to back up 30sec. It will act like it is going to back up, but then continue where it was before I hit the button. It's annoying because then I have to manually backup (which is always too far back when listening to audiobooks).
Planet Lizagna's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I listen to a lot of non-music MP3s for business and use variable speed for most them. I’ve tried several apps, most of which are fine, but Cloudbeats is the very best. It is intuitive, the variable speed is easily adjustable in small increments, the transmission is very clear. It has too many features to name, but it is super user-friendly. I love it!
J_P_'s Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
At the moment it works well, but there are some things that could be improved. 1) Option to auto cache and change cache size when streaming music. Auto cache is perfect if you have spotty network connection...Apple Music, Spotify, and other music apps do this. This should be a standard feature. 2) Font under the song is squished. That should be fixed. 3) UI could be improved.

NTXredhead's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
When in offline/airplane mode it stops playing for no reason. In a effort to troubleshoot I looked at the timer. It seems to be set at 15 minutes by default. I can’t seem to turn it off and when I go to help there’s no information except to say there is a timer mode. You can’t search the web site for anything so this app has turned out to be useless for me. If my music stops playing for no reason I can discover......who needs it? Paid for it, but guess that doesn’t matter.

iPhone JP's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I really enjoy using Cloudbeats on daily basis for streaming my own music collection over cloud storages such as Dropbox, One Drive, etc. However, when playing music using Airplay 2 on the HomePods (Mono and Stereo with one or two HomePods) the playback will stop after a song or two. The only solution is to prevent the phone from locking itself. I find that very annoying because I have no problem streaming and Air-playing Spotify over HomePods, but have constant disconnect using Cloudbeats. Bluetooth headphones or speakers seems to be working just fine. Developer has acknowledged the issue is related to Airplay 2. I am looking forward for the solution to raise my Stars up.
stringmun's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I have several cloud based music apps that play continuously through the entire playlist. Was gonna use this app for a very special event to play though a list of songs while unattended that I have in a playlist I made using this app. But thankfully I tested it before the event. OMG what egg in my face it would be if the music stopped playing like it does in this app. I’m too scared to trust it after several times it stops for no apparent reason. Not trustworthy at all. Wasted money big time on this app. Geez 😡 DONT BUY! OVER RATED! I’ll even use the term garbage.

Heyber's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
The app can recognize the music collection i store in OneDrive for business. The issue is, when i play radio shuffling all my music collection, it stops after playing the first song so i’ve to push play or next song to continue listening to my collection, and sometimes it shows the wrong metadata (i mean, playing a song showing metadata from the previous one). And it repeats the same 10 or 12 artists from almost 200 (provided that there are more than 8000 songs). Also, there is an issue related with cache when on cellular connection (4g in this case), takes too much time to load songs when there is auto play mode enabled. In short, needs a lot of polish in the radio function. The great things: automatic album art, last.fm integration and the offline function.

Offbeatmammal's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I use this app every day on my iPad (and have the Android version for my phone) but get really annoyed when iOS decides to unload it randomly when not actively playing ... so pressing “play” on my headphones or in control center launches iTunes which has about 3 songs in. I don’t know if this is a CloudBeat issue or an iOS bug (feature?) but it is frustrating. Also, wish it was smart enough to know it didn’t have a connection so fall back to local only in shuffle mode rather than keep trying to read from OneDrive

If I select radio mix, it plays one song before freezing. I tried to use carplay and after a few minutes, the app kept crashing every time I opened it and it was plugged in. I unplugged it, waited a couple minutes and plugged it back and it worked. I love the carplay capability, it just needs a few bugs to be squashed.

bradleyjs2's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 8/28/19 2:00 PM
I‘ve been using the CloudBeats Music Player app for well over a year now and it’s just simply the best that I’ve found to meet all of my cloud-based music storage/steaming needs. Its easy and intuitive user interface allows for quick setup and playback. I like creating and listening primarily to playlists and this app plays all of the mixed music seamlessly with no noticeable stuttering or pauses during playback. It works perfectly on both my iPad and iPhone especially when I’m out-and-about and not connected to my high-speed WiFi. With the latest version (2.26.1) which now includes the use of HomePod as an output device, greatly increases its productivity and sound quality. I’ve tried several cloud services (OneDrive, AmazonDrive and iCloud) as storage/playback locations and have never had any issues with connectivity. So, the bottom-line is: the CloudBeats Music Player app is a “must have,” especially when having access to all of the free cloud storage that’s available. Thumbs-Up!

Stylish and easy to use, with cover art for albums displayed in app and on lock screen. My only minor complaint is that it isn't compatible with older .wmv music files.
Virtuabhi's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 7/22/18 9:23 PM
Please do not use this application to link with your Dropbox account. This app requires access to ALL files on Dropbox. For many years, Dropbox has been offering external applications to use permissions for specific folder and files. Why is this app not using them? Do NOT use this app unless you want your files to be read by everyone on the internet.

LAX20531's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 7/14/18 8:24 PM
CloudBeats has greatly expanded in both functionality and scope since its early days when it only supported OneDrive (then known as SkyDrive). The developer (Roman, IIRC) soon added the other well-known Cloud repositories to the app, along with variable speed playback and other features needed for audiobook/podcast playback, among others. All without requesting an extra cent through IAPs or new versions, as seems common with developers now. That being said, the maturity of iPhone and the saturated market make lifetime app licenses seem like a shortsighted idea that have likely contributed to the cesspool of abandonware. I’d much rather pay a patronage than have the developer discontinue an app because it ceased to be personally or economically viable. With that out of the way, I have one enhancement suggestion and I’m not sure if it’s viable. There’s an option for local cloud but can this be used or repurposed to use an SMB login to a local router and link to a folder of attached storage or its media server?

pholly's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 6/20/18 6:15 PM
Update: I found a much better app that has everything this does and everything this one needs and it’s cheaper. It’s called MusiCloud and it works great with FLAC files but didn’t work great with ALAC files for some reason, it can’t read the ID tag but you can edit the info using the app fairly easily. I really like this app but it’s missing some things that would make it great, mainly an equalizer and more sorting options or a better user interface. It’s really a bare bones media player but it works great and the downloads are quick. I also love the fact that album covers are displayed in a large format, it looks especially good on iPad. If the interface got a few tweaks and there was an equalizer added, this would probably replace Apple’s music app but it’s not quite there yet, it’s really too bad because this app downloads tracks from my cloud storage much faster than I do from iTunes. For $4.99 I was expecting better.

iPhone JP's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 5/8/18 11:21 PM
I have been using Groove Music for awhile, it has a very good interface and OneDrive integration. However, due to the lack of Microsoft further support, I have to find the alternative cloud music players. CloudBeats was one of the many options and so far it has most of the fundamental features that I want, able to connect and stream directly from Dropbox, Google Cloud, OneDrive, etc. Like many other options out there, it can also play seamless music and control in locked screen. It also works well with AirPod for pausing and resuming during phone calls where Groove has failed to do well. Thanks for the great work dev! Improvements wanted to stand out among the other cloud players: - Allow different sorting or search within the cloud storage system when importing playlist. Currently there is no way to sort, e.g. by upload date, in Dropbox for example when importing playlist. It’s very annoying when importing multiple playlists. - Allow adding songs to Playlist from Scanned Library, does not always need to start from Cloud Storage Root Folder system. - Removing songs from Playlist queue sometimes will bounce back to the top of the list when swiping to REMOVE. This is a huge annoyance. - Search: One of the improvements is to allow more flexible search after Scan. The limitation now is that it does not treat space and other symbols as delimiters, so a space after “:” or without will have totally different search results. This means if i put “Cloud:Beats”, it does not show “Cloud: Beats” when there is a space in between. - Equalizers: there is currently no EQ to enhance the listening quality especially when I want to stream music through HomePod, the bass may be too strong for night listening, lowering the bass on the fly is necessary without stopping the audio and re-casting to the HomePod to enable EQ.
Aubidle obsessed's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 5/31/18 5:04 AM
I must say that I like this app. I have used GoPlayer, Cloud Music (I think that’s the name of it), and another app—which escapes me at the moment. CloudBeats is the best one so far (at least for me). One of the coolest features that neither of the other apps possessed is the way the app lists your albums. It reads the metadata better (I think) than other apps. I have 6 albums if 2Pac’s music; not 50 because of the way CloudBeats reads the metadata. And, I would remiss if I did not mention the support you get from the developers. I originally requested a refund because the app was not syncing with Google Drive. I would get some error message. When I sent the developers an email requesting the refund, I received an email back with questions about what was actually going on. So, I tried again, and whatever the issues were, they were worked out. So far, I say great job! Keep up the good work! (However, as soon as I write positive reviews, then I start having problems...LOL. Go figure!)
rikki_boy's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 5/22/18 1:16 PM
The organization of your music is pretty straight forward. It’s best if you already have your music sorted beforehand such as all the meta info like Artist Name, Song Name, Album Artwork, etc. since you cannot edit through the app (sorting it through the iTunes desktop app helps with doing so). Drawing from most cloud storage sites, you can just stream all music directly to your device plus the option of downloading to your phone. Great app nonetheless!

It'd be cool if: —I could just see all thumbnails in a gallery —I could pick 2 or more folders for the radio mix. —I could import playlists & export them as long as they follow the current file/folder structure. *note, i see you can but not w nextcloud/owncloud.

I can make playlists, go into any of my DropBox folders and just sit back and listen to any collection I like at any time. I used the free version for a while, but had to upgrade when I wanted to listen to some larger collections of more than 20 tracks. If I had one request, is that you make a version for Apple TV.

Have been using it for three days. Can manage libraries based on directories in dropbox now. Really cool, fast and stable. GUI is simple and clean. Playlist synchronization is useful. Can write customer script to operate that file, cloudbeats_playlists.cb, but it is better to know its default place is in Dropbox/Music. Took sometime to find it. Bulk downloading and flac support is also great.

Much better than itunes. Gives me much more control of my own music and can stream from multiple sources.
GregaGenesis's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 4/11/18 2:49 AM
This app is awesome—we can now take our entire music library with us anywhere we go without expensive subscription fees or contracts—none at all! And it plays audiobooks! It is easy to navigate and aesthetically pleasing by easily incorporating cover art. I was skeptical at first, but now I am really glad I found this app—it’s one of my favorite and most valuable apps.

I have all my MP3’s on OneDrive and it works flawlessly scanning and retrieving the music. You can download the music to your device for listening offline. About the only problem I have is with gapless playback. It cuts off from 30 seconds to 45 seconds all together at the beginning and end of songs.
MildCaffeLatte's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 3/24/18 8:27 PM
Since one of the selling features of this (paid version of) app is to have songs available offline, I consider one star very generous. Otherwise fantastic app and great concept.
rossslushie's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
I’ve been using this app for a couple years now, and on one hand it’s great! I can have soundtracks I bought on bandcamp and stuff in the same place as my iTunes music! But, more recently it’s been having issues where it will start skipping over songs for no reason, and within the last few days, every time I try to add music to a playlist, when i reload the app all the music I had added to that playlist suddenly vanishes. Other than this it functions great, I’d just love to know if these are issues with my phone or with the app itself.

I have the paid version, I’ve had it for a few days, I attempt to use it for many hours daily, and much of the time there is no issue, but the bug below cannot be ignored. Sometimes a particular track will not play or download from the cloud, an attempt will be made to play, it will fail and then it skips to the next song, the next song will play. Sometime in the future, possibly a day later the track will be playable. (I use google drive & had WiFi connection the whole time). I will be happy to amend my review when I don’t see this bug again.
jkr90000's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
I rely on CloudBeats to listen to whatever part of my large music collection I feel like whenever I want wherever I am (with WiFi). On the other hand, I'm being asked to rate it again because I've had to reinstall it again. Eventually it seems its database gets corrupted, and it starts crashing mid-song. Everything has its frailties, but with >> 10,000 tracks to index, recovery takes a very long time (days). A database repair utility would be welcome. and it would be nice if you didn't have to play games with it to keep the rebuild going.

I installed ownCloud on my home ubuntu server and was looking for a good music player that can stream directly from the cloud and download some music I listen to often. I found it. Thanks CloudBeats - superb.

Best app for personal cloud streaming. Scanning is not as robust and frequently misses files.
TJ-Hamster of Thunder's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
A good, well designed, very easy to use app. The layout is simple and is absolutely perfect, I love it. Highly recommend!!! Only downside is after downloading the song to be available for offline access, sometimes it randomly undoes it and streams the file instead, making playing it choppy. Then it’s necessary to redownload it yet again until the next time.

This app is well curated.
Shiro Kusanagi's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
The app seems to steer you to a Dropbox sign in screen every so often. This bug has persisted for months and needs fixing. I have submitted multiple bug reports to no avail.
Sassyray18's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
New review: 10/16/18 - If I open the app and lock my device or switch apps, it completely freezes and I cannot get the app to work without restarting my device. It only happens on my iPod, which has the same iOS as my phone, but my phone has no problem. Old review: 4/8/17 - all these updates are nice but when you're still experiencing the crash every time you switch apps or unlock your screen, what's the point? I'm experiencing this problem on 2 devices, with 2 different iOS. PLEASE FIX IT! Old review: 2/4/17 - is the crashing problem ever going to be fixed? If I minimize this app and select another one or lock my device and try to come back, it crashes. I love this app but it's gone past ridiculous and needs to be addressed. Old review: 1/22/17- This issue still hasn't been fixed and is extremely frustrating. I updated this on the 4th and have had nothing but trouble. If I lock my device or go to a different app and come back, this one crashes EVERY TIME. This is extremely annoying. PLEASE fix it. Old review: I would like to be able to see a compilation of subfolder artwork in the main folder view and also the ability to sort by year released. (These haven't been addressed yet)
bradbelan333's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
The idea of the app is great, so good that I continue to use it. Even though the execution of the app is mediocre at best it is slow buggy hangs all the time. I sent some communication to the developers with bug reports and never really heard anything back and didn't see a fix. If you're a developer or a support person for the app reading this review please track down bugs look at performance and make it work better so I can up my rating from two stars to five stars thank you!

Finally, I can play my lossless music library from the cloud. Great app! Constantly updated too!
Ricardo Remis's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
I downloaded this app as a substitute to Microsoft Grooves. CloudBeats is one of the best apps in the market -I think- if you want to play your music stored in the Cloud (OneDrive in my case). The only important downside -in my opinion- is that the app is not capable of automatically sync the new files you upload to the cloud, so you need to scan your cloud again. There is an option to scan only a specific folder but this is not always helpful (specially if you need to scan a recent created folder). Hopefully an update in the future resolve this.
tony.o.'s Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 12/22/18 1:11 PM
Great app so far. Originally it seemed as if last.fm scrobbles weren’t working but after emailing support for the app, they got back to me almost immediately and after trying a few different things, we figured out that the tracks which weren’t scrobbling didn’t have album tags—after updating the tracks, worked flawlessly. Thanks to whoever the app support guy is!

I just wanted an app to play my music without interfering and without being too complicated (think iTunes) and this does the job perfectly! Very happy!

Been using this for years and it keeps getting better.
PlanningProcess's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 10/13/18 3:30 AM
This has been my go-to app for music in the cloud since day 1. It can handle FLAC and other formats that iPhone can’t handle natively. It’s perfect for audiophiles.
echoillusion's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 10/13/18 12:51 AM
I’ve been using this app for years and years and it’s never disappointed me. I keep all my music on google drive and it plays everything back with zero problems.
LosAngeles90631's Review of CloudbeatsReviewed on 10/12/18 5:26 AM
I have had, at one time, ALL of the music cloud playing apps, used them extensively, and can very accurately say that this app is by far, THE BEST CLOUD PLAYING APP! It saves you tons of $$$$ by being able to store music on cloud space instead of overpriced and expensive iPhone/iPad internal memory. Just buy the cheapest iPhone and store your music in the cloud!! Look at the iPhone memory upgrades when buying a new iPhone. The app is very intuitive and easy to use, sounds frigging fantastic, and you are only limited by the amount of free cloud space that you sign-up (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). I have had this app since the first week it came out, thought I might do better by trying other apps, but always come running back to Cloudbeats. It even works fantastic via Bluetooth devices (in my case, headphones and large Bose speaker). If there is ever an issue when you will not have access to a cell signal, then just temporarily save your music (physically) to the app - but that is rare (for me) because I almost always have access to cell or WIFI. Also, I have to say, I am really thankful to the developer since the app has undergone many updates and great improvements. They have NEVER dumped the app (and their loyal customers who bought it) to come out with a “new” app to sell, instead of just releasing an update. Cloudbeat - that has been noticed AND APPRECIATED. LOVE IT!
