    Interesting take.... I actually have been an avid user and content creator of SC for years. When they pushed out the mobile and desktop redesign, I was very displeased.

    Steering away from the desktop experience my frustration resided more on the mobile side. They pulled many many key features, that I still miss to this day. A few below-

    • track-listings (if they are legally enforcing copyright laws, they should be giving user ability to see track titles)

    • who I 'follow' (important feature, your search isn't robust enough yet to rely solely on that method)

    • private messages (gone)

    • notifications (gone)

    • playing app through Apple TV (gone)

    • record feature (gone)

    • who liked my sets/tracks (gone)

    • increasing the size of the artwork and wave stream within my feed has created an incredibly tedious task, of finding something to listen to on my morning/evening commutes
