Customer Reviews


I have to agree with everyone who is complaining about these apps. I bought the complete package and not only is it annoying to have to have the content separated into three apps, but most importantly, it's missing basic functionality like 15 second rewind or remembering your spot. If I'm in the middle of a 40 minute lecture and come back to it later it is really annoying to have to manually find my spot again. With hundreds of lectures of Watts floating around that you can just put into your iTunes, and play easier than this, it is hard to recommend spending $65 on something that is harder to use than that. Even though the lectures themselves are good. I hope they spend some of our money to update and improve these. If they improve this in future updates I will change this review but for now… Fail.

5 stars for Content, 1 for lack of updates

Alan Watts is my guru. The lectures are gold. The developers need to update the app however. It slows down my phone, for one thing, but also, it doesn't have basic functionality like coming back to the same listening position when I leave the app, rewind, and other things most listening apps currently provide.

Great but...

Do NOT buy until the developer(s) update the app. I just bought the app to find out it will not function on future versions of iOS. We are in beta 5 testing(last I heard)of the next update. Once the app is updated to be in compliance of future versions of iOS and some UI tweaks, such as being able to skip ahead or go back 30-45 seconds and the ability to listen where you left off. Then this app will get 5 stars. Otherwise I will feel cheated out $35 for an app that I can't use. Dev please please fix this.
