    "This is definitely the best music app in India, especially those who are a fan or a user of Apple devices. Like what @Harini said, it might not be cheap but at least it has its vast catalog to give justice for its extravagant price. 👌"

    "Ever since i discovered this app I have stopped using the other music apps i have on my phone. Although i have to say that it annoys me that the app is configured to add songs to my ogoing playlist when u tap on a title. And even when you play songs stored on your device through the app it autmotcially adds online songs in between. "
