What's New in Version 3.1
Optimized for iPhone 5 screen size
Bug fixes and stability improvements
Seems like a good idea: having all the great material available through NPR in one app. However, it's not much use when it crashes every single time I've tried to play something I've searched out from the archives.
So far I haven't been able to play a single thing.
Useless app until this is solved.
Love the app, dislike the app
Why is there no fast forward or backward function? Every time I listen to a podcast and it crashes (and it does that a lot) I have to play it from the beginning with no way og skipping to where I came from. Room for improvement!
