Great Content but the app is garbage 5 stars for content (which is really irrelevant to the app) but the navigation on the app is very poorly executed, bad navigation. The ONLY reason I use it is because I subs five to Take A Knee and the app is the only method I know of that automatically populates new episodes. But for that, iTunes and other podcast apps are the way to go
Previous app was so much better The content is the only reason i have stuck it out with this P.O.S. app. Stops randomly, slow to sync, allows me to sign in but doesn't give me access to the premium content. I'm switching to podcast one to listen to Adam
Unbelievable amount of commercials There are so many commercials. Probably 1/4 to half the program is either cold reads or official commercials. Is it possible to make this app worse? What ugly, poorly made update. The UI is just plain tough to use. Bad. This is a review of the app not the shows.
Despite updates, the app is still crap Navigating the podcasts is a nightmare. Want to change from ACS to Reasonable doubt? Be prepared to mash the "back" button anywhere from 3-15 times.... If you're lucky. The button will just dump you to the Android home screen 3/10 times - which then makes you relaunch the app which sometimes takes you to the last episode and you can start hitting back all over again. Good luck with the nonsense circular navigation method of scrubbing through an episode. Just put the podcasts on Google Play.
Awesome content, average app The app works well for me, but is nothing to rave about. It gets the job done and I'm used to its quirks. Would have given 3 stars, but I like the content so much I had to bump it up to 4.
Carolla is fun. App is crap. As others have said, this is a terrible app. Navigating in an episode with the wheel thing is poorly done: between episodes and shows is clumsy. Often have to shut app down with app manager. 30 second back and forward jump is good.
