I liked the previous version much better. The previous version acted like a radio, to let you hear the broadcast of whatever NPR station you wanted to here. This one just give you the generic NPR program. Worse still, it interrupts itself with various promotions. I have switched to a simple radio app now, and I am much happier.
The app assumes that you will always be able to stream the podcasts. Most of the time, I am driving in areas where streaming is unavailable. This would be wonderful if it allowed me to download the podcasts and then play then from a list. Since it does not, I will stick to podcast republic.
Not clear User interface is cryptic. Not clear if you can download podcasts for later listening. I ride the subway to work and Internet connection is spotty. Need to know if there is a way to download podcasts for listening while underground on train.
Love the content but you can't choose what plays next and the streamer freezes frequently I use this app every day to listen to Car Talk, and other shows. I go back and scroll through countless pages of Car talk to get back where I was. I don't mind it but I wish I could play episode 1341 and 1342 would play next. Additionally If you try to play an earlier part of the episode it will glitch and restart the episode. It happens every time I start an episode and it's very annoying. The app is fantastic other than these two things and I really wish they would FIX the latter problem.
Awkward Difficult to find stories I want to listen to. Can't seem to stream from my local station, I don't know if that is the App or the station. The app will stop streaming stories after they end and will only resume when I reopen the app. No playlist or queuing features. It's just easier to use the site and find a real radio.
Works again, yay! This app had some serious problems but they seem to have fixed them and works pretty well now! I really enjoy exploring new podcasts and stories. Great app!
