It's fine. I wish I could just play Adam's podcasts via the Google Play Music app with the rest of my podcasts. And you can't cast the show to listen on another device. I think people blindly give it 5 stars because Adam and the crew are fantastic instead of rating it how they really feel. But, I could be totally wrong. Get it on...kinda.
The show gets 5 stars. The app, not so much. Sometimes clicking the back button takes me all the way out of the app instead of getting back to navigate to other podcasts. Sometimes it shows file downloading but it's not, other times file is downloading but doesn't show it. I can only download one show at a time. If I try to click multiple shows for download them the original show is real choppy, or it will only do a partial download.
I like the update and access to all of Carolla digital. I still have to push the back button several times before I get to the main screen despite several updates to the app. That is the only reason it loses a star. It just keeps cycling between available episodes and the one I was listening to, rather than going back to the main screen until I cycle through three or four times
I gave 4 stars but I really mean about 4 and a half. My only complaints are with some of the screen layout for my fat thumbs on my Samsung galaxy 7... trying to adjust some playback options is tough for me... otherwise I love ACE and Carolla Digital!
Thank goodness for this app. I switched to Android some time ago, so I needed a non-itunes option. For a while I used the Podcast One app, but an update earlier this year turned the Podcast One app in to an awful-no-good-terrible-pile-of-maggot-ridden-corpses-and-raw-sewage. I wasn't able to listen to the podcasts for months until I found this app. The Carolla app is simple, functional, and not a space hog. It works great when I am in the back country out of service range. The playback is good. The UI is clear enough. I really like it and have no complaints.
I love the Adam Carolla show, Ace on the House... But this app sucks. It used to be good. UPDATE: newest version is a bit better, but they need to work on navigating within the app.
