Podcast amazing, app could be better
This review is for the app, not the podcast. I love this podcast so much and listen to it diligently. But the app is really... not great.
Functionally fine. Never any issues launching, accessing content, no crashes.
The design is so cluttered. When you are listening to an episode, there is so much happening on the screen. There is an image with text on it that takes up 60% of the screen. Centered on top of that is a giant play pause button, which usually covers up the text on the image so you can't read it. Below the play/pause there is a timer which you also can't read because the text on the image obscures that. Then there is a giant pink ring that circles around the play/pause, covering up even more of the image. So you can't really see the image, or the feature of this enormous button because they both block each other.
At the bottom of the screen you have buttons with tiny text on them for notes, favorites, etc. then you have a ff and rewind button. And then for some reason, you can swipe up to bring up yet another menu with playback controls.
And that's just the screen for when you are listening to an episode. The rest of the app is also overdesigned with features and buttons and text. What this app needs is a heavy dose of simplification.
Also there is no way to mark an episode as played...
Excellent podcast! Perfect for brides and anti-brides alike!
Download this app to get access to 250+ episodes of a wonderfully witty wedding planning hosted by a hilarious and thoughtful Aussie. The great thing about this podcast is that it combines professional quality with a great "keeping it real attitude." As a bride who never dreamed about her "dream wedding," it is a breath of fresh air.
The app is also great from a technical perspective. I love that I can mark episodes as listened to, and favorite the ones that I want to flag for a future second (or third) listen.
Used to love but will not pay for subscription
I used to listen from almost day 1 of this podcast (was not engaged). I took a break and now that I am engaged, I looked back into this podcast and now saw that it is subscription required. I'm extremely disappointed. I would have paid a small amount 1 time fee but I will not pay $12 usd monthly fee. This podcast may cost a bit to run so I understand that but I do not think it's fair to try and make a profit off of something Alisha voluntarily started as a hobby. Will be moving on to bigger and better things.
