I really like this app. My only issue is that I cannot delete some saved podcasts.
Love it Great for catching missed episodes
Bug persists I am addicted to Marketplace, so I love the content. But if something interferes with playback, like a notification on the phone, the story can't resume, and the controls disappear except for a play button that no longer works. The app must then be stopped and reloaded, and you have to try and skip forward to where you were. Not safe while driving.
Great Content 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 written summary which is helpful.
Great Content, Functionality Could Be Better (Nexus 5 stock lollipop) I never miss an episode of Marketplace, and the app is a great way to get my fix. I recently wiped my phone, and this was one of the first apps I installed on it when it came back up. That said, the app's behavior can be a bit weird at times. Resuming a paused episode or scrubbing to an arbitrary time in an episode is guaranteed to make the stream skip around at random. The only fix is to Force Close. Not as bad but annoying still: podcasts always cut off with a few seconds left.
