This app was good as soon as the premium content recognizes my login, which resets every month, and takes like 4 days before it logs in correctly. But the past week or so, the app wont open. It says low connectivity some features may not work so i push ok and it crashes. Ive emailed podcast one with no response yet. Oh and yes i do have a good connection, tried it with wifi, and without.
I used the old version of this app every day, loved it. Upgraded because I was sick of seeing Norman Lear every time I opened the app, big mistake! The new version is terrible. It's not intuitive and new episodes don't show up for download, even though they show up on my old phone with the older version of the app. Don't upgrade unless you are forced to do so. Great app turned bloated, slow and difficult to use. Also, all my downloads were removed. Bogus
This updated app is so incredibly hard to use. Very disorganized. I have to play the podcast first then pause in order to download?! It lost all my saved podcasts in the "upgrade" too. There is no prompt letting you know that your download has been added to the queue. The buttons are all really tiny on the play screen. I want to see all available podcasts by SHOW, not by PERSON. Was this vetted/trailed at all? It crashes all the time...it says my connectivity is low...why does that matter if I am playing a downloaded episode? 10/25/17 update...goodbye, podcastone. Hello castbox.
So far, just REGISTERING on this app is frustrating. I can't manually enter my birthday? I have to click back over 400 times? REALLY? Why don't developers actually TRY using their products before forcing the rest of us to it?
App was good before update last week. Lost pause/play function with wireless headset, which is super frustrating for me. App freezes up my phone for long periods of time and very frequently. App has gotten super complicated, and not near as user friendly as before. I am a monthly subscriber, because I listen while I work, and enjoy podcasting, but don't know if I will continue to listen and subscribe if they don't fix the issues I have. Update (10/18/17) Pause/Play function on wireless headset us back, but the app has not changed much from my last review. Now, the app is unusable. I open app and it gives me an error message that my connectivity is low. Have not been able to use app for 3 days now.
This is the biggest piece of garbage on my phone. I don't know how they managed it, but almost nothing on this app works. I listen to Adam Carolla premium content, or should I say I try to listen, and it's the most frustrating experience. If you click an episode, it plays a different episode. When you go back and click the one you want, it says "this episode is already playing". When you try to delete the incorrect episode, it won't let you. I hate, hate, hate this app.
