There are two parts to Hearts of Space, the app and the service. The service, for the specific niche content they provide, is superb. I just want a lot of options in my chill/ambient music and they deliver. It's also great to have decades worth of shows, so you can hear how space music has changed over time. Now, the app itself is a bit dated. It works fine on my S7 Edge, but it doesn't even have the regular media player interaction that I have with Google Music or my other audio apps. No widget, play controls don't even pop up on the lock screen or in the notification field... So you have to get to the app to pause or do anything. If you're listening on headphones and disconnect the cable, HoS will continue to play through your speakers until it is paused. This is the kind of stuff that Android "fixed"(or made easier for developers to implement) years ago. Plus the interface in general feels very 2004 (though this is also true of the HoS website). Fortunately these are all hour long programs of ambient/space music so you're probably not doing too much besides starting a program and then letting it do its thing.
The app works, and it works as described, but it lacks basic features. A key feature that is missing is Chromecast support
It would be great if there was an ability to search for a episode number or the favorites list was synced with your account on the website
The app worked well... after the update the app works great! Thanks HOS team for caring about your listeners!
