Misses the mark
2 major issues with this app. Missing songs from some of my fav artists. Ex no “Truth Hurts” by Lizzo and neither of Megan Thee Stallion’s mix tapes all of which is available on a competing app. The other issue is that the app doesn’t display complete song info. I learned this the hard way when I played a song and it was an awful remix. Then for another song I saw 2 album options appear but there was no label indicating which was the clean or which was the explicit version. Again I rolled the dice and ended up playing the wrong version. At minimum the song info should be complete and include the whole title, song time - because sometimes the album version is significantly longer than the radio edit. My local bar switched from a different vendor to this one and I hate it. I’m not buying anymore credits because I’m so irritated by initial experience. Users beware!
Update: The app company did reach out to me to help me resolve this issue. I do appreciate their prompt responses and research into the situation. Apparently this is not an annual charge. Still working on getting this resolved but had to update my review because I’m impressed with their customer service. I downloaded this app about a couple years ago and haven’t re-downloaded it to my new phone. I suddenly have an “annual charge” of $5 on my card from AMI Music which is the new name for Barlink. Not cool. I’m disputing the charge and getting a new card. Pretty sure this is not legal. Be careful where you enter your credit card information and watch your accounts.
Fake as hell, don’t waste your “priority” and money
I put in $5 and put in about 5 songs priority and 2 regular or something along those lines, which seemed great. But after an hour, not a single song had played, so I download the app. The top 5 songs weren’t a single one of mine, but that was fine. Until I saw “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC magically move from not even on the top 5 to number 1. So I downloaded the app, paid $5 again, and put in a song as “priority.” It didn’t show up even as number 5, even though at that point it would have been the second request for the same song. So it’s a scam, this is a bunch of nonsense. All they want is what they’re looking for, not at all worth your money, ever, either in the app or in person.
Library has horrible remixes
The app operates GREAT but it doesn’t show any difference between the original version and a HORRIBLE remix of the song. It happens way too often that you pick the horrible remix instead of the original song. You eventually just remember not to take the chance playing certain songs because you can’t tell if you’re playing the horrible remix or the original song. I have to take 2 stars away because they could make it easy on the customer paying for the song but they make it confusing on purpose. ON PURPOSE. Don’t believe any excuses they do it on PURPOSE.
Some improvements, Priority Play is bunk
It’s nice to see the upcoming song list, and over all it’s a solid user experience. I feel like the local caching could be better, but it’s not that bad. BUT, the priority play used to mean your song would play next (if, as I gathered from regular use, you were the last person to play priority before the current song ended). Now, I played three songs with priority and thy didn’t even appear on the next five songs list. I don’t mind if they changed they’re algorithm, it’s their prerogative. I just don’t feel like I can get my music on any more and that matters a lot, so I’d say don’t bother unless your sure the jukebox is open.
This app steals money sometimes
I think at first this App worked great and was fun. Even though I knew I was paying an outrageous price to play a song, it was fun to be able to control the jukebox and play songs from my phone. However, the last few times I have used it, it clearly did not works correctly. Many songs I paid money for to play never played. I watched people go up to the juke box and put in money not playing priory and their songs played while my sings still sat in “waiting”’ mode. I waited for hours but the songs never played. There is no one to contact to get a refund. Never again will I use this App. Save your money , done use this App.
Crap queue calculation.
In a bar with a Max of 15 people. Played 8 songs directly on the jukebox after nobody was at it for over half an hour... after checking the app, none of my songs were the current or in he next 5..... no way this group is requesting what is being played that much longer over my paid songs. Waste of money!!! Update: Again, in a bar with maybe 15 people, I paid $5 and got 15 credits, played 7 songs at 2 credits each followed by a 1-credit song to fill the remaining space... when my selections finally started showing on the playlist, it showed 2 of my songs that cost 2 credits, followed by the 1 credit song. Update2: just after posting that review, my 1st actually played, however the queue immediately shows 2 other songs before my next song... something is not right with the order/sequence of songs for AMI and I would not recommend using this service, I know I am done with it after this experience.
Worked fine at first, not unplayable.
Loved this for the first couple years I used it, but haven’t been able to access it for the past month! I get this response- Sorry, our server is not responding. Please try quitting and restarting the app. If the issue persists, the AMI server may be temporarily down. Please check back shortly. When trying to play music, trying to log in, etc. I reloaded with $20 right before this happened and I’d like either the bug to be fixed or a refund. I even deleted and reinstalled the app and same thing. I otherwise enjoyed this app!
Would love to see a "next up" feature
I can't tell you the number of times I've gone to play a song and found the same one playing after (good, like-minded company?), but it still drives me and everyone else at the bar crazy to hear the same song twice. I'd love to see some kind of "next-up" feature so I can see what's gonna play next and avoid playing the same song twice. It's also nice to have so we can follow the "mood" of the bar. Otherwise, no complaints here.
I use this app regularly, but am finding it frustrating lately. When I search through my playlist, which is very lengthy, I start at the top, play a few songs, hide the app and then come back in a little while to play a few more songs and I have to start my search all over at the top again. It doesn't remember where I left off in my playlist. I wish you guys could please fix that so it remembers where I left off in my playlist. Thank you!
AMI needs GPS
The app should not allow you to change music or pick music unless you are in the bar. There should be some type of check in or gps check. The app has made AMI worse and actually ruins the experience in bars given anyone can choose a song at any bar. I’ve wrote this review before and the response is you need to check in at the bar to pick music. You don’t. That is wrong. I just picked some songs at a bar I am not at or near. I have never seen the check in function ever and I use the app every weekend. Is there a fix for this? The app ruins the jukebox if there isn’t.
Old version was better
The newest updates for AMI make the app a little harder navigate. The background is white, which is harder on the eyes when in a dark bar. Also, when searching for an artist, the app doesn’t recognize some artist or songs spelling and then changes the words without permission, making you erase and type it all over again. Please update app again. I use this app sooooo often because I work in a bar that uses the AMI Jukebox and it would make looking up songs so much easier.
Love this app. Works well at every venue I’ve visited. However, in recent upgrades it lost some simple functionality. During navigation it would automatically take you back to where you left, now it automatically goes back beginning. Annoying when playing multiple songs. An obvious bug that needs to be fixed. Why do some songs suddenly disappear from library? How can songs be added?
How to earn brownie points
So I was at a bar playing my jams and suddenly live music happened. My music selections were put on serious hold. I wish for an option that detects when a user has left the location and puts music selections on hold until that user returns. That way users could enjoy their music picks when they came back to the jukebox. That would be great 🎀
This is a crime
You guys have literally robbed me of a good night, not only did I spend money on the tangible machine, but I paused the app and applied the play next button (with priority) to play my song up next. This is a crime and honestly I would never complain about 6 dollars, but to offer a service worth 6 dollars and claim “priority” only to not deliver on your promise is a crime and just down right unethical. At the end of the day 6 dollars is spilled milk, but if you want to grow as a company you’d need to execute on your “priorities” and promises to further your consumer/supplier base. At the end of the day you stole my money from me after promising me ONE PLAY. I’m so disgusted with this service. PEOPLE, Do yourself a favor and just bring your external speaker to a club. At least you’ll get your song played WITH PRIORITY. PS I WISH I COULD GIVE 0 STARS IM SO DISGUSTED. Never have I experienced such a lie from an app.
