Awesome program with some minor flaws This program has so many awesome features, I can't mention them all, but my favorite has to be that it remembers your location in every audio file. So even if you stop playback, play 10 other podcasts, and then come back to the first file, it resumes playback from where you left off. Winamp doesn't even do that. Minor flaws: in the latest version they got rid of the navigation buttons on the now playing screen. Why?
I got this originally to make it easier to keep up with, and listen to Star Talk Radio while at work. I've since found many more great podcasts with this. I use this every day. I've had questions and the developer has always been quick to respond to my emails and has always been helpful. It's easily worth much than the asking price. HOWEVER, ever since I got my new Galaxy Tab S2 Running Lollipop 5.1.1 the radio doesn't work at all.
This app would be awesome if it allowed me to easily get to the pause button and if it closed when I told it to. When I close a program, I expect it to close. Not for it to hang around for days on my notification bar and lock screen. It seems as the settings are meant to take care of this, but they don't work. It always requires a force stop to make it go away.
Perfect. Has what you want, and very much designed to be user friendly I absolutely love this app. Whatever public radio podcast or station you are looking for is here, super easy to use, clean and intuitive interface. Full marks. I loved it when I first downloaded it years ago, and I love it now. At one point there was a buggy update with my phone, but 1) it's long been fixed and was only a temporary blip, AND 2) in the meantime the developers actually sent to me an older version of the app that I could use while they worked on it after I complained. How awesome is that?! A+
This is a great, little app. Because I am so busy, I don’t always get to listen to all of the NPR programs I like. It’s nice that I can listen to stories I’ve missed, just a couple hours later. I don’t like apps loaded with this material design. It looks like a video game or a toy. This app is free of all of that. Very functional, and easy to get where and what I need, just with the use of my right thumb. The live radio stations don’t work, but that’s not a big deal for me. I have another app for that. As far as collecting Podcasts, this is the best app for me. Five stars without hesitation.
I even wiped my phone trying to make this work For years I used this and it did pretty good, every now and then it would buffer. Lately, not even a minute in it stops it has to buffer. I live in a fantastically strong signal area it doesn't happen with anything else and it doesn't matter what the radio program is that I pick...
