Unauthorized App Violates Democracy Now! Policies This app is not authorized by Democracy Now and is unethically and illegally making money from advertisements served with material belonging to Democracy Now! Democracy Now! is an independent news broadcast with a policy of not accepting any advertising dollars. I have notified Democracy Now! and it is up to them whether or not to enforce their copyright and have this app removed from Google Play. In the meantime, please boycott this app.
Rating the show... Sorry This app doesn't look as good as a lot of other apps but the content is the most important part of democracy now. They don't have a lot of money to produce an extremely high quality app and they deserve the support! That said, I think the biggest improvement would be chromecast support, bring that please!
I like the app a lot, but after using it I often need to force close it otherwise it'll stay open forever. It is also buggy, but podcast streaming still works fine even if I keep getting a message saying that the app has stopped. There is no good way to skip the streaming audio without resetting the entire podcast. The ad placement is not good. If this app can be purchased, I'd gladly buy it but first please fix these problems.
Very buggy, often broken. Glad that I can stream news from Amy Goodman, but the app is unfortunate - does not exit gracefully - always requires a force stop on Galaxy Nexus/Android 4.3 to close. Audio player controls are barely functional. I'll try and donate more often in hopes that the app will improve.
Needs improvement (constructive criticism) Constructive criticism. I love democracy now. The app does not have its own shutoff button so you have to go into your phone's settings to do it. It also continues to play when you receive a call.
This app is unusable App will not close on my Nexus 4. Can't scroll thru program and who wants to listen from the beginning every time?
Redesign application UI and media player backend
Application designed for android v15 and above (older devices will use depreciated version, sorry)
