    This will take us to the Home screen, where in this demonstration we currently have the SoundCloud icon
    .
    This icon has an orange background with a cloud on it. The left side of the cloud is a series of music equalizer indicators up and down, for the music to show how high or low the notes are. The right side is the other part of the cloud, which also makes a heart shape.

    We love music, and we love SoundCloud, so let's give the SoundCloud icon a tap

    The icons at the bottom include a search option in the middle, and at the far right, a profile head
    .
    That is what we want, the profile head.

    Let's press "Cancel" at the top left corner because we are creating an account, not signing into one

    Now, tap on "Create account", and it will bring up the same screen as before when we tapped on "Sign-in"
    .
    However, this time it says "Create account" at the top. We are now creating an account rather than trying to sign in with one.

    However, before it opens Facebook we have to agree to the SoundCloud "Terms of Use", "Cookie Policy", and "Privacy Policy"
    .
    Like the majority of people, I don't normally read these. They all say more or less the same thing. If we don't accept it, which means pressing "Cancel", we can't use the application.

    Facebook will now open, and we will receive a notification that says, "SoundCloud will receive the following info
    :
    your public profile, friend list, email address and birthday".

    This allows the "Friends list" to be changed, the "Email address" to be changed, and the "Birthday" to be changed
    .

    However, it does not allow us to change our "Public profile" information
    .

  22. 22
    We're not going to change anything in this demonstration, so let's just tap on "OK" at the bottom right
    .

    Now, we will be taken to SoundCloud with our newly created account
    .
    We now have a "Collection". Our Collection allows us to add music and update additional information. This will be the first thing we'll see after we sign in, but we don't need that.

  24. 24
    We need to press on the profile option at the bottom right corner
    .
    Pressing on this icon will not do anything because we are already signed in.

    Instead, we are going to tap on the three dots, or the ellipsis, at the top right corner of the screen, which is the menu option
    .

    On the next screen, we will see, "Your Profile", "Tell a Friend", and "Sign out"
    .

    Let's tap on "Your Profile" at the top

    This will take us to our "Profile" page, and the interesting thing we'll notice is there's nothing we can really change currently
    .

    Since there are no options to change on the current page, we need to go back by pressing the arrow at the top left corner
    .

    There's still no other option to change profile stuff, so tap the arrow at the top left to go back another screen
    .

  31. 31
    Now, we are back on the "Collection" screen
    .
    The reason our profile can't be changed is that SoundCloud pulls that information from Facebook. All of that information is tied in there, and if we want to change that, then we change it in Facebook. At that point, SoundCloud updates itself.

    Now that we have signed in, SoundCloud is going to be rather empty, so let's tap back on the Home button, which is the house icon at the bottom left of the screen
    .
    As you might recall from the beginning of this tutorial, there was a bunch of music and stuff there.

    However, if we tap on that Home button now, there is nothing in our "Stream"
    .
    We've personalized it, and we've added ourselves, but we haven't told SoundCloud anything about us. For that, we need to move on to our next tutorial where we discuss how to personalize and set up SoundCloud streams, so you can hear the latest music that you would like to have.

Questions and Answers

It won't let me sign in with Facebook?

When I click on OK while singing in with Facebook it just comes up with the same page as I started with so it basically won't let me log in with it

  • See if there is an update for SoundCloud in App Store.
  • Enable cookies in Safari. Press the home button. Tap on "Settings". Tap on "Safari". Tap on "Block Cookies". Select "Allow from Websites I Visit".
  • Ensure that your Facebook account is active.
  • Connect with your mobile data not WiFi. Some WiFi networks may be configured to use several IPs to access the Internet, causing similar problems.
  • Log in with another Facebook account if you know it or ask someone to do it. Log off and log in with your credentials.
  • Open Safari and log onto Facebook at https://www.facebook.com.
  • Soft-reset your phone by using our tutorial. No data will be lost.
  • You can also submit your problem to the official SoundCloud community.
