User Design settings
Can you make Theme or Background changer option to Application ?
Changeable themes would be fine

After a long time updating my other app (Maps Pro for Windows 8), I am looking at the most voted suggestion and this one is the top one!
I am now wondering how to play it. I tried to take the current track’s cover but SoundCloud max size is 500×500 so stretching that to a big screen makes the image completly blurry. And when images are very bright, you can’t see the white texts/icons over it.
How do you see this feature? Would you like to point to one of your image on your hard drive that would be used as replacement for the existing background (and wouldn’t change when you change song)?
Some also mentionned themes, does that mean that you would like to change the main color (orange) to something else ?
Also, I had some feedback asking if I could borrow the style of the iPhone / Android official SoundCloud apps, what do you think?
Thanks for your help!
A UI revamp, to match the current SoundCloud interface, an option to change the background with your own wallpaper and a color scheme option (some might not like orange) would be a welcomed update!
The ui of the soundcloud website changed recently.
You might consider copying the new ui as a "light" theme.
The app "net tape" has a really nice theme in landscape. It uses a large cover art and pulls the background color from the cover art. This combination looks very nice. I recommend that you take a look at it. Actually, if you look carefully, the color gradually changes while the song is getting played (it pulls color from different sections of the cover art and transitions them).
I would recommend having a color scheme option hidden in the settings charm.
Then we could change from the orange, purple, black (which I am personally used to) to whatever preset or custom colors we like.
Been using your app for a long time. One of the only few fast and responsive apps from the Windows 8.1 Store.
1. Rather than having to press on My Profile and then look for my own reposts it would be cool to be able to customize the Home section as to how I like it. That means I can choose to put the stream, my favourites, discover new artists and reposts to the Home section how I see fit.
2. When listening to a song, it would be awesome to have the image of the song to be expanded on the Left Hand Side, and underneath a list of all the other tracks to be played, with an overall cleaner UI without so many buttons. Sort of following in the Zune aesthetics! If its not possible to expand the images as I suspect there is a picture size limit, then maybe just do that when the app is snapped to its smaller frame.
I'd like to be able to see when songs were posted and easier navigation. Fast forward and rewind buttons should be the only things that change the song, sometimes the back arrow in the top right changes the song. Love your app and use it everyday
Really like the functionality of your app. I like that you offer features that SoundCloud doesn't. But needs a UI overhaul. Consider the 'Hyper for YouTube' app on the Windows Store.
Thanks for your comment! I'll have a look at the official SoundCloud mobile apps (even if I need to support mouse navigation so it won't exactly be the same but inspiration is always good. I noticed that all official apps are on white background and not dark like Clouder is currently so that might be a big change :)
