Needs to be updated more often but... This is the greatest app for great old radio shows that were, sadly, before my time. Back when adventure was adventure. Comedy was actually funny. Suspense,mystery and sci-fi actually sent a chill down your spine. So many great radio shows. Definitely needs to be updated with more shows, more frequently. I've listened to literally every show, every episode on here. Multiple times. Will bump to five when more shows get added more frequently, until then, four. recommend downloading if you are an OTR fan.
Works great, for the most part. However, there's always room for improvement. Such as... Add automatic screen rotation. Every other app can do this. Having screen orientation locked down in the settings is a PITA. Add playback speed and pitch adjustment. A lot of shows were not speed-corrected when transferred from the original source material. There needs to be some way to correct it. Add "Theater Five" to the available shows. Okay, it's from the mid 60s, a bit after the Golden Age, but they're generally really good. There's over 250 episodes available.
Love love love love! These stories have a soothing effect for me. I listen as I fall asleep or when work is getting stressful. I just wish there were more episodes of my favorites but it's probably like tv these days, you find a show you like and they cancel it:( There are plenty of others to choose from though. Great variety!
Most useful app on my phone. Great app & very well done. I use it daily as I am an OTR driver. I would be lost without this app. I do wish you could make this to work with the auto rotate function of the phone. It does get annoying having to go into the settings to select portrait mode and back again. All in all, this is a superb app. Thank You...
I'm nowhere near old enough to have remembered these, but NPR got me hooked as a child and it's great to have all of these on my phone! The only problem I have is that it does not put a notification up when it's playing, so Android kills it if I'm trying to text or browse the web. Other audio apps put something in the notifications so this doesn't happen.
Great old radio show app! Great app. Love it and listen to it often. I'd like to know though why the continue playing option under settings doesn't work. Older versions did but I can't get episodes to play simultaneously. I would love to hear from the developer on this.
Some bug fixes and user interface enhancements.
This is the old version of Old Time Radio Player for those who prefer it.
Now available for Android TV! Listen to over 14,000 episodes of old radio shows.
