    Pros: 

    Great design / only 7 Mo

    Cons: 

    Too much lack of features !

    Stream, likes, trending & search are the only features available ! No artist view, no playlist view, no users profiles...

You can’t use this version of the application “DaftCloud” with this version of OS X. You have OS X 10.11.6. The application requires OS X 10.13 or later.

@andreyazimov Same, why is this app requiring 10.13, @docterd ? 🤔

@andreyazimov I only have a 10.13 MacBook here and a friend reported some issues with at least 10.12. That’s why decided to keep it at 10.13.

@andreyazimov @docterd Restricting 10.12 is a bad move imo, a lot of us decided to not upgrade because of the recent issues on 10.13 😕

@andreyazimov @docterd Yeah, there is still serious unsolved issues with High Sierra, so won't be upgrading until it feels safe to do so.

Wow, this is a beautifully designed app that completely fits SoundCloud's style, so props. Aside from the improvements you've already suggested, I'd recommend having it so the "Play" button shows when the song is paused and the pause button shows when the song is playing as aside from the opposite way it currently is. I'll definitely be using this app in place of the site from now on, though :) Oh, and it'd also be cool if there was a little mini floating player you could enable, like in iTunes :)

@thewrongjoshua never could wrap my head around this play/pause thing! :)

Unfortunately I'm still in review in the App Store. Not sure what I will do next with the App, but I welcome feedback. I will probably built in better playback queuing (queue track up next) and better Soundcontrol (AirPlay, 2x support, maybe EQ).

@docterd Yes, would love better queuing control.

Andy Lima@andylima
@docterd Agreeing with those priorities: better playback queuing (queue track up next), AirPlay, 2x. 😃

What this has over all of the other Soundcloud players for macOS is that this is natively built (I think), so the performance on this thing is excellent. Almost no CPU utilization (2- 3% on my MacBook Pro) and minimal memory footprint. Compare that with the alternatives that are built on Electron. I'll be using this as my daily Soundcloud client starting right now. Excited to see where this goes. You should start charging for this immediately so that you're motivated to continue improving it. Who knows, you do this right and maybe Soundcloud cobbles together their coins to buy you and make this their official macOS client, which I think they really do need.

Also, you need a Shuffle function. For both Likes and Playlists. That's key for long term daily use.

@joshuapinter I got you covered. With a little bit of luck, it will be available before the AppStore closes this holiday.
