Hypebot’s piece on SoundCloud’s new iPhone app has got it just about right. I do hope that SoundCloud are listening, because this has upset a lot of people.
It’s interesting though. I remember talking to SoundCloud about their strategy late last year, and at that point they were talking about doing more for the listener. Which I remember thinking was a good idea overall. However, I think that they’ve done exactly what Hypebot has said, they’ve thrown the baby out with the bath water.
What do you think?
