As an avid SoundCloud user, I must say it's the music app I use the most. With a clean interface and intuitive menus, it really makes for a great user experience, especially when you use it multiple times each one of the seven days of every week.
Recently, though, I've found one major issue with it: it doesn't have Android Auto support. While other music apps, like Spotify, integrate perfectly with my car's display, my favorite music app (SoundCloud) doesn't. I don't know why this is, and even by reading other posts about the matter I haven't been convinced by any singlr awnser.
Now, I am aware most of the SoundCloud userbase (myself included) don't pay for the great service the company provides - I know beggars can't be choosers. The guys and girls at SoundCloud must get some kind of pay for the great work they do, obviously. I, for one, would be more than happy to subscribe to SoundCloud Pro if it included Android Auto support!
To truly contribute and not just ask for a feature like a kid who wants candy for free, I bring you this site: http://www.jeffreyhumble.com/soundcloud-for-android-auto/
. If you take a look at it, it seems the guy, Jeffrey Humble, has got the interface all figured out, as well as different controls and features for the app. Also, from what I understood from it, it appears the SoundCloud app, given its architecture, should work with Android Auto without major changes to its code (please feel free to correct if I'm wrong, as I don't have any formal knowledge on the matter to support this claim).
So, I wanted the open the discussion about this matter after seeing all the posts that talked about Android Auto support go away semi-unnoticed. I hope some of you read this and contribute with your own ideas, with hopes of getting this to the people at SoundCloud so they can give us a solution to this problem or, if not possible, an awnser.
