So buggy for so long The app itself is cool, if it would only work. It has been buggy for years. Right now I'm listening to a full episode using it with no way to pause, rewind or fast forward. The whole download function is totally cryptic. There isn't room to describe all the buggy things about this app. I expected them to continually improve this app but they haven't at all.
Like many of the other comments here, I love the show but think the app needs work to be anywhere close to the show in production value. Yes, it's ALMOST usable. No, you can't ever quit without rebooting your phone. Downloads are hit and miss. Still, I paid for the app just to support the show and the developer. SO-Now that I've given you my $$, how about you give us an app that works? Seems like a fair deal to me. PS. Why, just why is there no way to quit the app when I'm done listening?
Exceptional & Great Program But Extremely Poorly Designed App There is no doubt that the Radio Lab programs are great. But this app doesn't even worth one star. It has a lot of issues that needs to be fixed Jumps randomly between podcasts, Jump back and forth couple of seconds every 5 to 10 mins, most of the times the downlod button & filtering options of podcast list don't work, its interface is not user-friendly & lacks lots of simple options like tracking list of previously played items. To summarize in comparison with similar paid apps it is almost the worst.
Overall, it just doesn't work well. HTC One M7. I don't have any big issues with any apps, but this one just doesn't work. I select the episode or short that I want to listen to and it plays a completely different one. When I want to exit out, it doesn't. It just hangs around in the background. I've never written a negative review and, I'm sorry, but I had to for this one. I do hope you fix any bugs soon. Let me know if it is on my end, too. Lastly, great podcast. You guys are the best!
Love the show, but the app, but the app... The show is awesome. I love the content, I love the hosts, I love the production value. The app on the other hand is TERRIBLE! Frequently crashes my android phone. I cannot close the app, stays loaded until I restart. The episode descriptions which appeared previously are now gone. There is no way to track new or unlistened episodes. The playback of the episodes frequently skips for no apparent reason with full signal. Please fix this.
Very very glitchy I love radiolab and donate every month, but the app is horribly glitchy. The podcasts will start playing with 10 or 15 seconds glitches in it. If you go back 30 seconds, the same glitch will play again. You can download the podcast and then go into airplane mode and it says the podcast isnt there. Super glitchy. Just nacigate radiolab in browser mode on your phone.
