These stories stick and change the way I see the world Whether it is appreciating how to stock vending machines on an aircraft carrier, how to babysit your brothers, sell a mango, educate our children, catch a fraud, live like a beaver or survive summer camp, the stories stick to you. The team at TAL have changed the way I see the world. The app is a great way to keep up with the latest and favorites. My daughter and I share stories so a way to join a group and keep up with a listened to list would be great.
Fantastic for the content, but app needs work Kudos to the app for making these great podcasts so readily available. The app itself has some issues: the app doesn't update to show the new podcasts, and a more updated list is shown on their mobile site vs the app. If the podcast is interrupted by a call or exited, the app will not save your position. Th app sometimes has issues playing a podcast, as well. Good job on fixing which podcasts have been heard; keep the improvements going and it will be a great app with amazing content powering it.
'Love' This American Life, but just 'Like' their App I live This American Life, but their App needs a little work. I have a real hard time saving shows to listen to offline... They only work 1/3 of the time. The rewind and pause button often restarts the whole act or show instead. I'd love to have a feature to check off all the shows I've watched online instead of just on the app.
Great Podcast. Buggy App. I love This American Life. That's why I was more than happy to pay for the app, despite reviews that mentioned it crashing and having bugs. Sure enough, I've encountered plenty of those.. But if I just push play and don't touch the app until the podcast is over, everything usually works out just fine.
App is a great value for the content, but still some bugs The app us much better than previous versions but still has some bugs, such as disabling other apps from using bluetooth audio controls until you reboot after playing an episode. Nonetheless a huge improvement over the last one I had installed. No fundraising interruptions!
After years still lacks basic features. I purchased this app hoping to be able to play episodes like any normal podcast app. But it doesn't even get the basics right. I can't control playback with my Bluetooth headphones. When I pause and play it restarts the episode from 0. Also it limits downloads to 5 episodes at a time. The content itself is good but you might as well download the episodes in mp3 format and play them with some other player
