Unexpected Crashes & Bugs Unfixed Nice and clean interface. 2 major issues with the app: 1) While downloading a podcast, the app unexpectedly crashed and closed on its own. Upon restarting the app, every subsequent try for downloading would cause the app to crash again. The only solution is to restart the phone, which forces PRI app to shut down completely first. Sometimes it requires a clean reinstallation. It is unstable. 2) All podcasts are downloaded under their respective radio shows, needs a separate tab for ALL DOWNLOADED PODCASTS.
Disappointing Initially I enjoyed this app for the diversity of programs to which I could listen. I liked the feature that allowed me to download selected programs and listen to them in areas without data connections, but it seems to 'forget' what has been downloaded. This is happening too often. Since I installed the app, updates have added new buttons in the form of large bars that block much of the screen. Now it is hard to scroll through program lists when I am given such a tiny window to read the program episodes.
Huge bug Sometimes it randomly crashes when downloading or even opening a show's feed. I suspect or happens when it cannot load the podcasts url for any reason. I recommend developers add better 404 handling or something,instead of creaking the entire app. Sometimes it helps to clear app data/cache. But not always, particularly when the issue is a broken url.
Excellent programs. Bad app Stops playing for no reason sporadically during a segment. I like to listen on my phone at work and I have to stop what I'm doing to restart it.
The World in Words is awesome The only reason I got the app was for The World in Words podcast, which wasn't working a year ago when I first DL'd this app...but I stumbled upon this app in my library recently, and I can't get enough of this podcast at the intersection of culture and language...Thank You PRI! Merci beaucoup! شكرا جزيلا! بہت بہت شکریہ! 감사함니다! 謝謝! ありがとうございます！
Just can't play the live stream I have no difficulty in playing all of the podcasts featured in this app, but I don't know why every times I touch the play button on the live stream (and it then shows that it's playing the program) no sounds I can hear from it.
