…The site has a new mobile app out geared not just for listening, but for creators managing accounts. And, here’s a reversal: while the app coming to iOS soon, it’s Android first.
SoundCloud Pulse is announced this week, available next (it’s in beta now). It’s a companion for managing your account. It’s already useful, if the functionality is narrow in scope:
- Reply to comments right in the app.
- Check live stats on how your tracks are performing.
- Set sharing for tracks you’ve uploaded (public/private).
- Follow users.
So, it’s the ideal app to have in your pocket when you meet someone and want to check out their music, or make some quick changes to active accounts.
On the positive side: at last they’ve addressed some of the shit they stripped out of previous versions.
On the negative side: why package them into a separate app and roll it out on the most music-creation-unfriendly mobile OS out there?
