Like the podcasts, not the app! Sometimes, wrong titles to podcasts. Another problem, when I stop listening to a podcast and close the app, it still shows on my phone's scroll-down menu. Even after I press the stop button on the menu, it still stays there. When I do a quiz, some sentences stop midway! I used to think the problem is my phone but Ive downloaded it now on 2 phones, still the same problems remain. For an app that has so many podcasts on technology, I can't believe how poorly designed this app is!
Podcasts Not Linked to Titles Correctly This is a new problem. When I click on a podcast for Stuff Mom Never Told You or Stuff You Missed In History Class, it pulls up a random old episode that is NOT the episode I asked for. For instance, SYMIH pulls up the Grimm Brothers for BOTH of their latest podcasts. Please fix this!
Love the podcasts, not the app The settings option provides no "options"; esp. to close down the app after finishing an episode. It stays on the phone screen as an active app and when I get a phone call and whether or not it is answered, it begins playing all over again. Another annoying aspect is the scroll function. There is no way to scroll by date, no grouping whatsoever. There is not a lot of common sense ease of use to this app.
Awesome app! Only 2 things that I see could be fixed/added. Whenever a broad subject has "highlights", I am unable to click them directly, as it is on the website. Instead you are forced to go through the trouble of copying the text and pasting it into search. Secondly, it would be very convenient if the app could remember the page I left off on if I closed the app without finishing the article. Just a suggestion!
Please fix! With the latest update, there is some sort of glitch that prevents me from removing articles from the "read later" list. Frustrating. But the app is great besides that.
Getting better EDIT:Now fixed. I turned off the notifications in the app yet I'm still getting one everyday. Currently 'Today on HowStuffWorks' has just appeared in my tray.
