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.
This app is great, but would be a whole lot better if it could save the location where I pause a show to listen to the rest later. I'm tired of having to hunt around to find where I left off, especially since the timeline cursor is not that accurate.
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, 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.
Marketplace is a great source for balanced and hype-free news about economics, finance, and business. This Android app offers a deep archive of audio-based stories in an easy-to-navigate format. Some stories even come with a transcript which is helpful because the audio stream does not always connect. It would be nice to have a transcript for all stories.
Good app It has all the stuff I like and want to know. Only down fall, there are no text stories to read.
