A note about data usage:
Downloading a Podcast is defaulted to WiFi only. This is to reduce cellular data usage (or offline listening). Should you switch off this option then be aware that you may incur additional data charges. It is recommended that you check your data plan before downloading Podcasts on 3G or 4G. The app will also show an alert if your selection is a large file.
Ratings and Reviews
Song playlist not accurate
I’m trying to find the name of a song that I’ve heard on SBS Chill, and both the web app and this iOS app fail to produce that info.
There is obviously a bug somewhere that stops reporting the current playlist, not necessarily a failure of the iOS app, however that “playlist” feature is advertised boldly on the main web page...
Yesterday for instance the “latest” and last song played for the day was at 5:55pm...
Hard to navigate and hard to find playlist
To some extent the app is trying to have too many features and not being easy to find features. Hard to find the playlist for SBS Chill. Hard to restrict to one station so as not to bring up another.
Who ever designed it needs to do some user use of people outside of the app studios
On my iPhone, the app skips the podcasts I want to hear and plays other stuff from the same list. The download function does the same thing. Once downloaded, I can’t listen to all of the podcasts on the list.
