The app crashes at startup EVERY time! That's unfortunate because I like the new layout and ability to stream audio and create playlists. It would be helpful to have a "add to playlist" button on the stories themselves. Of course, the content is great as always.
The new update has made the app a lot worse than it was before, previously the app would not sometimes recognise my subscription and I had to go through some logging in and out and reinstalling in order to see the content. Now none of it works and it completely doesn't recognise my Google subscription. I'm paying quite a lot of money for a service that hasn't worked properly for the past 6 months, you guys have lost my subscription until this is fixed. P.S since my subscription still lasts until September the app now asks me to subscribe to view the content, absolutely appalling. Not worth £45 for 3 months.
Current version crashes upon opening in Android O beta, pls fix!!?
Bring back the old one. On S8 this always freezes when first opened so you have to quit and reopen, and doesn't save where you stopped listening to the audio. This version is demonstrably WORSE than the old app!!
New update does not recognize my Google Play subscription and locks me out of all issues. I've tried clearing all storage data and logging in and out to no avail. I would recommend that you not update if you have a Googly subscription until these problems are resolved.
The newest version made it much worse. I need to download issues twice or thrice. The app does not remember my listening location and some articles are not downloading. Very disappointed with the update.
