"CloudPlay makes it really simple to add lots of music from lots of different places to a single playlist. On top of that, you get videos, too, which was so cool, I had to turn CloudPlay off to get any work done." -- Mac.AppStorm (scored 9 out of 10)

"CloudPlay sits in the menu bar and plays while you work. It's simple, but works really well." -- Lifehacker

"I listen to music from a number of places while I’m working. It’s kind of a pain switching between [sources]. Until now. Meet CloudPlay." -- Cult of Mac

Review by mooncowtime

Great app so far! - Was playing a 2 hour set through soundcloud when i thought to myself “I wish i didn’t have to have this tab open the entire time i listened to this.” Looked at the app store and this is the first thing i found. Works great with allowing you to log into sound cloud and access your likes(Where most of my music is saved). Is very non invasive and very useful. Only thing that i might improve my use just a tad bit is a way to bring it up in a stand alone window. Just so i could search a little bit more comfortably, but that is a very small detail. Thanks for the great app guys!

Review by jarodcore

Poop - This thing is nowhere near worth the $7.99. It doesn’t even work half the time. I click on a song and it will play another song. I try to play something on a playlist and it does nothing. It’s crap. Don’t waste your money. Just go to Github and download the Soundcleod app.
