I love the show and would love this app if I could use it hands-free to listen to recent stories. The favorites feature and Play-All feature is a good start but stories get stuck in favorites (can't delete and don't disappear when I deselect them as favorites). I have to uninstall and reinstall to clear the stuck stories. I would like to filter stories I've already heard and be able to select which stories to listen to (e.g, past 24 hours or past 3 days, etc.) and which sequence (starting at oldest or most recent). I want to listen while making/eating breakfast or dinner or while commuting and don't want to manually select the next story.
Good App, but currently broken This app was great for listening to marketplace podcasts until the latest android OS update. Now it randomly skips around during playback and doesn't download complete podcasts for offline listening. I hope it's fixed soon.
Crashes in landscape I love the show but the app needs some work - crashes if launched in landscape, loses its place if notifications interrupt it, etc, etc. I tend to use the website to stream on my phone now as it can handle being launched from landscape.
Good app It has all the stuff I like and want to know. Only down fall, there are no text stories to read.
Cannot Delete downloaded podcast Recently, there is this particular podcast I cannot delete from the list. It is titled "What lies ahead as Myanmar comes out of isolation." Is this a bug or something else?
Randomly stops or goes back to the beginning I like to listen to Marketplace weekend but lately I can't get the whole program to play. After playing for about 5 minutes it randomly stops and sometimes returns to the beginning of the program. If I try to move the cursor to the place in the program where it's stopped and then I push the play button nothing happens although it looks like it is playing.
