TL:DR - this app is worthless. Seems like Earwolf is abandoning Howl.fm as a platform since they recommend you transition to Stitcher and this app is severely busted. I would recommend using Stitcher since it will actually play podcasts instead of crashing every two seconds. I love Earwolf but it seems like they arent willing to put in the effort of maintaining their own app. Bummer.
Everyone else already said it. Frequent crashes, random stops and restarts from the beginning, Wi-Fi or 4g makes no difference. This app simply isn't worth more than one star. The pay wall was a good way to screw over fans. This mess of an app is a good way to chase away the most loyal, those who paid. I see an uninstall in this app's future.
Such a shame. Great content but unusably bad. Won't download episodes - just launches error messages. Clunky interface. Sometimes it just stops playing. This really needs to be resolved
Ever since the most recent update, this app is entirely useless. I pay for the subscription as I loved the ability to download and play my favorite shows on the go. Ever since the integration of Stitcher, I can only get the most recent episodes and maybe 10 randomly selected older episodes. I even downloaded stitcher to see if it worked any better, and it only has those same episodes. I will be unsubscribing until this is fixed. Great job ruining your app and completely alienating your fan base!
Unplayable. I love the content, but am unable to listen to anything successfully. Even after getting a new phone. Canceled my howl membership since I can't listen to anything I pay for. I'm stuck with the few available free episode available on apps that work successfully. Samsung s8
Won't actually play the podcast, and it won't let me download episodes either. I've been constantly berated to subscribe so I can actually listen, and when I finally do, I still can't.
