This app is trash. I'm actually pretty upset by it, as this is the first app I've ever paid money for. I figured, 'hey, The Moth is pretty well established, they oughta be able to hire a competent programmer.' Well, apparently not. Not only are there limited episodes (which is not what I was led to believe), the UI is visually confusing, not cleanly intuitive and is an eye-searing yellow and white on a black background, I seem to only be able to download (this function is buggy and weird anyway) every other episode for later listening, and I can't even do that much (which is WHY I got the app in the first place: easy access to old stories that wouldn't eat my data) because the app crashes every minute or two. Settings? What settings? There are none. Or rather, if there are, I haven't found them. All in all, very disappointing. For shame, Moth people. Putting your name on trash like this; It doesn't represent you very well, does it? Put out a *significantly* better version/app, prove to me it works before I buy it and maybe we'll try again
I love the Moth. I really do. But this app is not worth your dollar. You will NOT find the latest episode of the Moth Radio Hour on this app. It only has episodes from last year. And there is no search feature. You're better off just subscribing to the podcast for free, but I warn you that the podcast doesn't have the latest episodes either. In order to hear the latest episodes you need to head on over to their website or wait for it to air on the radio again. 3 different sources - very unorganized.
This app keeps stopping. The Moth is so enjoyable and this app just lets you down. The bigger question to be answered is " Why does Google Play knowingly allow technically inferior apps like this to be sold." Both The Moth (Public Radio Exchange) and Google Play should hang their heads in shame over this terrible app. Neither company seems to have any intention to fix this poorly functioning app. I would have thought that accepting subscription monies on products known to to be be faulty bordered on fraud. There is ample evidence from your consumers that this app. is in fact faulty.
This app has not been updated since 2013.... Will randomly force quit in the middle of a story... then you replay the story for it to REALLY replay the entire thing no matter how far in you were... where is the update? why make an app people pay for if you are not even interested in it in the first place. i will probably delete again. :(
Love the stories; Sadly as reported soooo buggy As one of the few PAID apps I've downloaded for its great content, it's doubly disappointing to encounter so many bugs. Lately, I get annoying, frequent error messages that moth "has stopped" when I'm NOT even using the app. I've sent "reports" to no avail. Go figure.
Frustrating The content is great but the app doesnt seem to work properly on an S4. Streaming works occasionally, downloads do not play, the app won't close or respond. If this is updated and bugs are fixed it would be a nice app.
