A giant leap back for this app. Very disappointing.
Larger thumbnails have lead to titles being bumped off the screen, never mind the summary.
Gone is the very simple and *quick* one slide favouriting; now you have to sign in, find the programme, click through to the info then, finally, you get to be able to favourite a show! This is even more confusing when you consider that the link to the favourites folder is marked: + Favourites.
So far, favourites don't seem to automatically expire when there are no episodes available.
Basically, they've made it even harder for radio listeners to listen to what we want, when we want and we STILL can't download shows that aren't podcasts.
Top class app
I don't understand the hate for this app... Simple to use, easy to navigate around, no lag or glitches that I've found and works flawlessly in the background. Can't knock it!
Near perfect app!
I use this daily... It's my main source of music on my phone now - it's going to be even better when we eventually get full show downloads later this year!
