Edit: I also notice that the forward skip button seems to be cut off in the app (on my iPhone 6). A bit annoying since the app also doesn’t seem to work with iOS audio controls. I can work around this using a Bluetooth device, but it’s an annoying bug, especially if users are being asked to pay for a subscription. Original: For a few years, PaceDJ has been my go-to app for listening to music on my runs and walks. I have tried other similar apps but kept coming back because I appreciated being able to set and correct BPMs for songs saved to my phone. I originally downloaded a free version of the app and then downloaded the paid version to get premium features (removing ads, interval training). About a year ago, the free version of the app was removed or changed to paid. Now developers are switching the app to a subscription model. That’s a fine way to get revenue from new users. But the app is now set up so that people who previously paid for the app don’t have access to features they paid for. Not a great business practice. Please provide some means for legacy users to access features they paid for.
New Review: Obviously the app was better before the ads but it still does what’s intended. I’ve merely adjusted my running to make it work. Due to an issue with the app I had to shuffle all my songs which... wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. Still the app does exactly what you’d expect & has a ton of options available. Original review: I’ve posted on FB, sent a tweet, & messaged the Dev through their website. Version 2.3.1 & 2.3.2 crash upon opening on an iPhone 11 Pro on iOS 13.1.3. I even uninstalled the app & then it worked... temporarily. After force closing the app after it reuploaded my song list the crashing returned. Crashes on opening! Edit 1: In response to the developer I’ve used the “contact us” form on their website to send more detailed information. I cannot enable or send a log as the app ALWAYS crashes upon opening it. Edit 2: I did another uninstall & rebooted the phone, then reinstalled, opened the app, got my tempo uploaded & then closed the app. Crashing upon opening returned. I rebooted my phone a second time... it works! Never did get a response from the developer via email.
I downloaded a paid version of this app a good while ago. At least a year. It wasn’t perfect, but usually did what I needed it to do. Today I launch it to discover there is a subscription. Ok. Sure. 99 cents a month isn’t that bad. But I can’t seem to activate it?! I’d consider giving it a try but... I can’t. On top of that the free version seems to play the same songs. In the same order even though shuffle is on. Look. I like the app. And I’d consider a subscription but 8 need to be able to purchase one first! And please tell me that there will be some sort of 1 month trial for legacy members? I feel a little cheated paying for something and suddenly not having the same functionality without warning. I’ll check back in a week. If I still can’t subscribe I’ll be looking for a new service and a new app.
since there was no way to do some of the things i wanted... problem being that when the subscription renews the app doesn’t pick that up so i can’t so what i need to. i don’t notice there is a problem until i’m using the app... and it won’t restore to a subscription version event when i use the in app restore. the only way i can get it running as expected is to delete it (and all of the data with the app) and reinstall... i took a chance with the subscription guys but every time it renews i lose a day on it because i have to redo it when I'm at home - or , basically, not the gym or running. i gave you a chance here, at your suggestion, by subscribing even after you took away the basic functionality. i just deleted it again so that i can reinstall and use it and not be reminded about what was removed. please fix your app and how it applies subscriptions. id like to be able to use the app and not have to tweak with it all the time. it’s a decent app but, good god, do you guys ever use your own software in the real world? correction, even after reinstalling this time it still tells me to get a premium subscription...
I’m going to upgrade to premium and I don’t mind paying as long as you support the app properly now. I feel it’s been very buggy in the past. Ignoring loads of my music that it should be able to shift. So it will play 3 songs from a 200 song playlist. So I will pay and try it out. But I will cancel if it’s not supported properly. AirPod support has been less than great too. Will this be addressed? Or has it been addressed in this version? Hoping I can come back and give you 5 stars. Thanks.
