Customer Reviews


Adam Graham and Great Detectives of OTR is one of the better OTR presentations. This app is a step up from the basic podcast. It retains the values of six different shows a week, playing all available episodes of a series - beginning to end, Adam's intelligent presentation of his research but with the addition of app only bonus shows and the ability to personalize your experience with lists such as favorites, audio, video.

Bad Update

The app won't work since the update on 3/17. Another update this morning, 3/20 via iTunes, did not correct the problem.

The app generally works very well, the programs are entertaining and the hosts comments, opinions and trivia about each episode seperate Great Detectives from every other OTR podcast I've tried.

3/27 update - I deleted and reinstalled the app on my iPhone via iTunes. Back in business.

Great content but flawed app

Five stars for content but one star for the app.
I love the podcast but the app has serious flaws.
There is no way to filter content or hide listened-to content, which wasn't much of a problem when the program list was under 1000. Now, with over 2000 podcasts, scrolling to the middle of the playlist is frustratingly tedious.
