So happy the content is available! Wonderful to see. The app needs a way to navigate back to what's currently playing, however, so you can go back and pause it or maneuver the file. The control buttons are also very very small.

Thank you so much for this app! Elegant, simple, effective, just like the dharma! There are certainly improvements that could be made, and I do occasionally find a bug in which trying to remove a downloaded talk crashes the app, but the app does its job.

A lovely range of talk, teachings and guided meditations from teachers, with new material uploaded every week from different centres. I find the search function useful so can look back in old talks (there's a lot on there) and download facility for listening when off line.
