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!
Great App for Car Trips I love these stories. Nothing beats TAL for entertainment value and human interest stories. The app has some bugs. The pause/play feature skips forward sometimes but you can move the play head so it's not that much of an issue. I love that you xan download five at a time for offline use and that is automatically updates every week with new content. This is the best $2.99 I've spend in a long time!
Better than the broadcast I listen to TAL exclusively with this app. The sound quality is excellent. I download an episode I want to hear when I want to hear it (usually via WiFi), and it plays flawlessly on my LG3G. Previous android versions were frustratingly buggy, crashing constantly. Not sure if the improvement is due to the improved TAL app or android upgrade, or both, but this iteration is the best so far. That said, I haven't tried searching for past episodes so can't comment on that.
This once good app is now great. UPDATED REVIEW: Loving the latest version of this app! The audio stopping and remembered episode issues were fixed making a far more enjoyable listening experience. I highly recommend this app. Thanks so much for the improvements. PREVIOUS REVIEW: If these issues were fixed, this app would be awesome. Cons: Screen off = audio stops and you have to restart episode from the beginning. Weekly episode doesn't download or won't play when it does. App doesn't remember which episodes you've already heard.
Great show, buggy app As others here have mentioned, this is a wonderful show that deserves your support. However, the app is very buggy. It crashes too frequently, and it frequently loses your place in an episode between listens. Even during listens it sometimes stops allowing you to properly skip around the episode. But it's nice that it lets you store up to five episodes offline. I'd prefer if that number were much higher, though...it should depend on your device's storage capacity IMO.
Great show, App needs work Love, love, LOVE the radio show, and thrilled to have it all at my fingertips, but the app needs some work. It rarely remembers where you left off, and frequently crashes when you try to resume an episode. It would also be helpful if when navigating it would remember the episode you last listened to and go back there, so you didn't have to manually scroll through ten years of old episodes to find where you left off. This is by far my favorite podcast, just wish the app worked better.
