SoundCloud App Review; How to use SoundCloud on iPhone?


Music/ Software/ Mobile Application



SoundCloud has come a long way since its inception in August, 2007 by its two founders Swedish founders Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss, after its official launch in October, 2009. In May 2010, SoundCloud announced that it had 1 million users. Which subsequently progressed to 5 million registered users in 2011. Therefore, it didn’t come as a surprise when SoundCloud threatened the reign of Myspace in the virtual music industry.

Unlike other music/audio app, SoundCloud allows you access to playlists put together by your favourite artist themselves…how cool is this? Not only would you find first-hand music but also a remarkable collection of bands (popular and garage). Bedroom DJ’s. The place to discover the unknown.


You can turn this music app into anything that you want to be. A listener, creator or a star. Record and upload sounds/music from your device. Opt to share them privately or publicly, seize the opportunity to engage your audience and watch your fan base grow.

Search for incredible and innovative playlist from other creators, build an enviable playlist and share your passion with others. The ability to upload files with a unique URL, makes it social media friendly. Easily embed sound files in your Twitter and Facebook posts to make it more interesting.

Download your SoundClound app from your AppStore. Due to its online feature where you can only stream music, you will need a third party to help you download your music. Some third parties apps to look out for are Freegal Music, Beats Music, Free Music Download Pro, and iDownloader.
