      "YouTube works great for streaming my favorite music. It doesn't work as well as Spotify because I can't really create my own playlists as easily. There is also no option for offline play. I still use it all the time, though."

      "This is a terrific idea! Just about any musician in the world or anybody else who has something to say uses Soundcloud to upload their audio. Soundcloud itself is free, as is this app, unless you want to upgrade to a premium service for $10 a month. You can also use this app to upload your audio. So, for both creators of unique and truly indie sounds, and their listeners, this app should offer long hours of exploration and enjoyment."
