Ratings and Reviews
I used to love this app, but lately every time I open it it spends 10 minutes "normalizing tracks" (whatever that means), leaving me waiting hopelessly for the homepage to show up. It was never like this before. Please fix :(
**update: the app has only gotten worse since my last review. It crashes constantly. And since it takes 10 minutes for the app to even load I have to keep touching the screen every 30 seconds- 1 minute because if I allow my phone's screen to turn off before the app finishes loading, then as soon as I try to turn my phone back on it freezes. This results in several attempts to unlock my phone and the second I unlock it, the app crashes (or has already crashed). This only happens with this app. If this keeps happening I will have to find another way to listen to my radio show. I can't keep spending my entire commute to work just trying to get the app to function for a few minutes until it crashes and I have to start all over again.
Gets worse with every update.
I've never *loved* this app, but it's always been good enough. My biggest pet peeve has been that if you're a few episodes behind on a podcast and want to listen to several episodes, you can just press play and go, because it will play them in reverse order. Irritating, but workable. But these last few updates renders the app nearly useless. It just sits on the "normalizing tracks" screen for a very long time. Sometimes it loads after 5 minutes or so, but most of the time it just crashes and you have to reopen and start the process over again. I will be finding another app for my beloved podcasts.
Too many ads and a terrible overlay
Ads happen was too often and the ads are such low quality it’s embarrassing. Every once and a while I think the podcast episode stopped but it’s just an ad by a whispering nitwit advertising some podcast advert. Also, the now playing overlay is terrible, if you tap the screen even slightly it skips to the next episode
