Not ready for prime time. It hangs when playing the live stream. Despite selecting Audio only, when listing the episodes it starts playing video. It keeps playing in the background without controls.
Absolute Garbage!!! Miss TWIT Pro so much right now. Can't choose old episodes to watch or download. I used to catch up when on the road. I used to look forward to half of the shows, had them running during work...now app is so annoying (if i tilt my screen at all, the damned thing starts playing!!!!!). I'm beginning to not care and about to delete the app and forget the show altogether. Leo, what have you done?
Can't see library of shows without starting to play You see a list of shows, click a show and the most recent starts playing with back catalog showing beneath. I don't want that, I want it to start playing when I select an episode. If I pause the video in landscape, turn it so I can select a different episode, the video starts again. This is a mess.
Great for its feature set... But.... It doesn't let you go back through the entire library of episodes. It only offers the "podcast" published episodes, which is like ten or twenty back. I want the website's ability to choose ANY OLD EPISODE no matter how old (if the website offered bookmarking where you left off, there would be no need for any app). Without this feature, this app offers nothing that Pocketcasts already doesn't do better. But to be fair, this app is very smooth and well made. Five stars once ALL episodes become choosable
Not so good The only good thing about this app is that it DOES play twit podcasts. It does not however, do it well. There is no refresh option that I could find. In audio mode, if your phone tips, it will detect and change the video aspect, interrupting the playback. I have constant trouble trying to get the playback to stop. If you exit the app, it will randomly start playing the already stopped audio in the background. I love twit but if this app were my only access to it, I would stop listening out of frustration.
There is no way to stop playback from the app, I had to use force stop. It's possible that you can use the headphone remote but honestly, I uninstalled it before I could try that, mainly because of the following scenario that made me realise this app is absolute tripe: I had been listening to a show, and decided to return a phone call. Since I had my headset on, I went to the dialer and and made the call. Every other media playback app I have used will mute itself respectfully when the user of the phone is on a call. That after all is the sensible thing to do for an app, the guest on a host device - a phone, who''s purpose in life is to allow users communicate. But not this piece of absolute garbage. No this app decided to keep playing, and send the podcast down the phone to my caller. To add insult to injury, I went to the app, and found there was no stop button. As I'm using android kit kat, I was left with having to locate the app in the settings app, so I could then force quit the app, all whilst trying to placate the person I was calling, DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP. If the app author is reading this, take it off the store. You should be ashamed of yourself
