No update for 7 mos??? It’s crashing!

Is this App being ignored by its developers? Always crashes, won’t load, and the App Store says it hasn’t been updated for 7 months! I used to love this App, and hadn’t listened recently. I just car got a car that supports Apple Car Play, and looked forward to the ‘prime news nuggets’ you can curate according to personal interests. I’m so disappointed! My commute will truly stink now!

Umano Alternative

I love Umano, and tried really hard to find this app which does things just like that app. It is of great help for us, English learners.

App Not Working

The app hasn’t been working for over a week. Maybe it has to do with the iPhone’s most recent update.
