The German music streaming app SoundCloud was little known until recently. But thanks to an effective marketing policy and the presence of social networking features, this streaming service has become one of the favorites of the music roar all over the world. So far, most of its users are located in the United States of America, but in Europe there are more and more of them every day.
SoundCloud is available for free for Android and iOS devices. If you don’t already have a SoundCloud account, you’ll need to create a new account in order to use one. You can create one for free by logging in with Facebook, Google+, or email.
The SoundCloud platform is really good for mobile phones. The home page of the app displays a personalized news feed that shows songs posted and uploaded by other SoundCloud users you follow. Gift any track, update it, add it to a playlist, or launch a station directly from the news feed.
If you are looking for a specific user or song, you can use this app’s search feature to find exactly what you want to listen to.
On the main tab, you can click the top arrow labeled “Stream” to quickly view music and sound trends. You can also browse various music genres and forms of audio content.
You have the ability to follow followers who love to discover new music. When you click on a username, you go to their profile to see what they post and what playlists they have. You can follow them just like you would on other social networks, and the songs they post or share will appear in your content source.
You can create your own playlists. When you hear your favorite song, you can click on the three dots to add it to any playlist. You can create as many playlists as you want to be public for other users or private for your own use.
