The "update" (replacement, really), to put it delicately, sucks. I was extremely disappointed to wake up and find the app - which I used daily and was recommending to my friends - had lost the one feature that made it unique and useful: the Discover function. NPR has many great shows, but I really don't want to spend hours searching and downloading individual episodes. Please either add this feature to the current app, or make the old app available again.
I've never written a review, but this update is really bad. They removed the discover feature despite still advertising it as something in the app on the web site. I used to use this app every day, but will probably uninstall it if the discover feature isn't returned.
Just like so many other people, I used the Discover feature daily and now it is gone. Who is the bonehead who decided to remove that key feature?
WNYC is one of the best radio stations in the US. The "Discover" part finds interesting articles I can listen to offline, like when I'm in the subway.
In previous revision, it was much better for offline user to download and listen. Give us back Discovery function.
I loved this app for years, so it pains me to give it 1 star, but WHY would you remove the Discover feature? How am I supposed to know where in your 200 shows are discussions on the 8 or 10 topics I want to hear? Please give us back the whole reason for this app in the first place!!
