Needs a Fast Forward button I have enjoyed this app for many months bcz it allows me to listen to my fav over nite radio show, Red Eye Radio. I like & have used the -30 sec button. But it really needs a +30 sec button or any increment forward. Seems to be such a simple fix, but I have used this app for a long time and it has never been added, tho I do think I see it in one of the pics. I would probably rank lower for not having this except everything else is fine.
Pretty Good. I'd recommend. Outstanding selection of podcasts to listen to. Good quality sound streaming. The app is little buggy when running other apps (It has a tendency to stop working) & it doesn't save your place in the current pod you've been streaming or note which you've listened to already. If you receive a phone call whilst listening to a pod it doesn't pause automatically either. All in all, this app is a pretty reliable, simple, application for listening to podcasts.
Needs improvement The app has a few issues. It sometimes stops streaming mid podcast, which wouldn't be such a big deal if there were a fast forward option. I would like to be able to navigate back and forth through podcasts more easily. The search function is basic, which means you need to know the title of the podcast you are looking for. The biggest bug is that if you receive a call while listening the podcast continues playing, it ought to pause automatically as with other audio apps.
Nice Interface; Can't Load Podcasts This app has a lovely interface — clean and intuitive, with a simple layout and attractive graphics. The associated website has a great selection of content. However, every time I try to use the "Browse Top Shows" feature to find something to listen to, I get a message reading "Couldn't Load Podcasts." Uninstalling for now; here's hoping future updates night solve the problem.
Used to love it I really used to love this app! But I'm not sure what happened along the way. All of a sudden you could no longer see the podcasts in a category, then when you were listening to one it would force close. It's laid out great, but there are other apps that you can actually search for new podcasts AND listen to one the whole way through.
Needs Work Love the app and the podcast available. It needs work though. As many have stated it tends to crash often and then have to start the podcast all over. And while you can fast forward to some extent it's only a few seconds at a time. I also will say that it's hard to pause a podcast while in another app. It needs a feature like how most music will have a window that opens up in the drop down screen on a phone. Good app but needs work.
