Works Almost Never


I don’t understand how an app can have so many bugs for so long without fixing any...usually you can only play one cast and the next one usually doesn’t play at all or allow you to skip, forcing you to close the app. Great idea that is horribly executed without any attempts to get better. Lazy.

It's great but has one big issue

Yeti juice

This app is a fantastic idea! I spend a lot of time on the road and have always loved listening to the radio. So when I learned about this app I realized I had found exactly what I had been looking for. I had grown tired of listening to podcast after podcast and this app really shook things up. Rivet is great for news, tech, sport and much more. Providing a random mix of different genres of content is amazing. The only problems I have been having is that it constantly freezes and then crashes. Also, it randomly doesn't allow me to skip things I don't want to listen to. I don't know if it is just an error with the new update or if I am somehow doing something wrong. Regardless, I love this app and will most likely just struggle through not being able to skip. A fix would be great though.

Not My Style


I've definitely seen better apps that are more organized than this one. It does give some news but lacking in the categories I usually look at. Visually needs some improvements to show full extended library with ease of finding topics. I don't like spending much time searching so I value that aspect a lot. So I would have to conclude it as a basic app with room for improvements, at least for my needs. Voice actors are definitely key too...didn't make good impressions with me. Boring and monotone a bit.
