    Oh man, I really dig the concept. I signed up and am trying it out.

    • Soundcloud only? Have you considered adding YouTube and/or Bandcamp?

    • I really dig the infinite scroll, good job :-)

    • At first I thought there was no way to sort by subcategories. It took me a sec to figure out that it was hidden inside the (+)

    • Responsive design, yeyuhhh!

    • For search on Soundcloud, maybe let users search by artist, song title, or album? I had a hard time finding an artist.

    • Given that some number of users need to browse by 'new' in order for new content to receive some proper votes, hiding it underneath a dropdown in 'hot' might not be the best option. Displaying both options side by side may lead to more users sorting by new.

    • No scrubber? You need a scrubber!

    • I can't view comments without playing the song.

    That's all my feedback. Awesome project, man. I really dig it!

      Thanks!

      • We're looking to add other sources soon (youtube doesnt allow audio streaming only, we're trying to get API keys for Bandcamp and Grooveshark, + some others)

      • Search on Souncloud should work by searching for any keyword

      • Good feedback on the new/hot dropdown, I'll discuss with the other guys about changing that

      • Also great feedback on the comments/scrubber (we're looking into ability to seek)

      Thanks a lot, Daniel.

    Good job on the site. I've been also very intrigued with the hacker/designer news, reddit, etc. model of crowdsourcing great content. I've been wondering what else could you apply the same model to. Deals/Coupons? Videos?

    This is great!

    Open source it! I want to code!

    • Users should be able to use the "save" action from the now playing view (mobile)
    • Taping list items displays the hover state on iOS (two taps needed)
    • I totally missed the slide-in actions (comment etc) in the now playing view
    • The nav open animation is way too laggy on the iphone 5 (chrome) i tested on. Consider dropping it..

    Love the concept and the simplicity .. Signed up and bookmarked !

    As for feedback, I took a while to find the play/pause/prev/next controls .. Feel as though they should be closer to the currently playing song's album art, at the top of the screen, which is somewhere I would look for more persistent UI elements such as the controls. Bottom right seems a bit far from everything you would use more often in the UI.

    Also, I just submitted a song, but missed any repost prevention system .. Not sure if you already have one, but if not, it's something I also really miss here on DN -- at least a search to see if the song was already submitted, and if so, the option to vote it up.

    You are definitely on the right ... track. ;)

      Thanks for the feedback, and agree with both of your points. We're looking into some different layouts for the play/pause controls and also figuring out the best way to handle duplicate submissions.

      Appreciate you signing up, let us know if you have any other feedback.

    Yea Helvetica Neue's not doing for me either. Especially "About" and "How it Works" which are so small and light they all but disappear (and look a bit jagged in Chrome at least). Try finding a typeface meant for screen use.

    Very interesting Clark. You have something potentially very special there.

    Really really interesting project. Bookmarked!

    That said, since you're looking for feedback:

    • your logo lacks some sort of personality + looks currently very pixelated; it's a small detail that can make a huge difference out there (hello reddit).
    • there's a one pixel difference between your header height and main wrapper (http://d.pr/i/AaWq). It sure is a detail but thought you may want to fix it.
    • I normally always fancy Helvetica Neue but in that case, I don't know... Doesn't work for me. I'd try a more rounded sans-serif.

    Good luck with your app anyways. I like it; hope more people will join.

      Great feedback, thanks.

      • We're getting a better version of our logo up soon, been focused on getting the bugs/kinks worked out first :)

      • Great call on the 1px difference, we'll get that fixed up.

      • I'll play around with some more fonts to see if we can find one more suitable

      Appreciate the notes Mathieu.

    Always on the lookout for new music. I'll definitely be giving this a try :)

    I am not sure the real value, but it is really interesting.

      The value is that we hope to be the music charts of the internet, since currently there's no way for people to decide which songs get put at the top of the charts (its influenced heavily by major record labels). Would appreciate any feedback you have on the app.
