Something Went Wrong- but read below update
I would not recommend any friends or family to use this app.
I paid to initialize the 'extra' features when I first downloaded WAY back when first released, mostly wanting the AUTO START. I say "HEY SIRI... LAUNCH FUNNEL", Funnel launches, and the thing starts playing. First the auto thing SOMETIMES did not work, so I would just manually touch to play. But NOW the 'BBC' doesn't want to work without manual start, especially if the device is 'off'; you know, like when the button is pushed to turn screen off! If I disable 'BBC' the others auto-start. I WANT MY MOINEY BACK... but I purchased a long while back.
UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE
I deleted and re-downloaded/re-installed and it SORT of put things back to 'normal'. But soon after auto-start mostly not working AGAIN!!! And as before, still JUST the 'BBC' not auto-starting. Oh, by-the-way, to enable the 3 extra features (Auto-Play, Auto -Start & Auto-Reminder) now cost you OVER THIRTY BUCKS!!! I can't recall what I initially paid way back, but usually I RARELY will pay THAT fracking much😨.
I feel if we could 'shuffle' the placement of stations, placing the 'BBC' away from the #1 position, all might be okay, as again, it only seems to be the 'BBC' doesn't want to do the 'auto' thing.
I wish we could ADD more news podcast stations. If the included are all enabled (you can toggle each of the 8 on or off to play), you end up hearing the same news over & over, and really... there is very little difference, just the speaker. You would think that you could experience a WIDE variety of SLANTS regarding how the different regions might react, but not-so-much of that happens now-a-days. Everyone has to be POLITICALLY CORRECT, so news feeds are pretty much 'vanilla'.
I don't understand why they decided to break the "WSJ" into two separate channels. They should just be ONE.
I really wish there was the go back 5 or 10 seconds button, or skip ahead, but you CAN 'grab' the movement button and slide it either way. Just keep your eyeball on the counter time and you should be able to get where you want along the time line.
If you decide to get this app, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND not to pay for the 'AUTO' features!
Not bad... unlocked version too $$$
I like the simplicity of the interface and the news feeds update hourly. The premium cost is outrageous at $24.99. That’s just too much for what is basically a software routine that auto plays the free podcast news feeds. I’d pay $5.00 in a heart beat to have the auto play function work.
Crashes when screen goes to sleep, dev not active?
Used to be my go-to news feed for the morning commute, even paid for the pro upgrade. App started to crash when phone display goes to sleep in iOS12. App hasn’t been updated for 9 months, other apps by G2 LLC haven’t been updated for years. Abandonware.
Use Apple podcasts with stations instead. Does the same thing but works with Siri and HomePod.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
