Ratings and Reviews
A usage I've needed! Lacks some features
High 3 star
Love the look of the app face, the color, within the app. It fulfills a usage I have wanted and needed. Fabulous app. I give a lower rating because it lacks features so far. In other words, what makes this app awesome is the play lists and starring/favorites feature, and most of all it provides access to all these talks in place by linking up these websites. The content found through the app will always be excellent. However, strictly looking at it as an app, it is somewhat underdeveloped. Here's what I would hope for: the chance to search a page (a talk) for certain words and phrases, as I would if I were on the website itself. (I've actually needed to go to the actual site to do this already.) I see no ability to sort when looking at talks. For instance, tap into the BYU speeches section. Could we add the option to sort by speaker or sort by speech title? Also can we sort by date given, newest to oldest and vice-versa? In the search option could I filter by BYU-I, GC, and so on? Also, I did notice I could not find a certain speech, either by the search function or by looking alphabetically by speaker, or by sorting by speaker. It is Boyd K. Packer, Ordinances from Feb. 3, 1980. I do enjoy the audio playback options for skipping or speeding up. Thanks for this app. I hope this review helps!
Nothing like it
I’m sure I’ve listened to hundreds of talks with this app since I downloaded it and recommended it to many people who have enjoyed it. Many talks I would have never heard due to not knowing where to find them or it being too tedious to get there on a phone. One can open the app, find the speaker they want to listen to and see virtually all of there talks. There are talks dating back to the 1950s that are available. I have enjoyed phenomenal talks from BYU Idaho and Provo, commencement addresses and devotionals. When Richard G. Scott died I felt the need to pay tribute to him by listening to all of his gospel messages which was very easy to do with this app. It has been a wonderful app and I look forward to future updates that will improve functionality and ease of use.
Looking forward to enhanced features
I’m enjoying this app. I’ve had it for several months now and use it almost daily. The random speeches is a favorite of mine; it will give you four random speeches to listen to. There are some improvements I’d like to see though: the app refreshes every time I leave the app and come back to it, or after listening to one of the random speeches, so I don’t get to listen to the other three random speeches it pulled up. I wish it would save what I was on so I could leave the app and come back to the same thing later. I’d also love to see speeches from BYU-H and other places. I understand that the app is probably a work in progress, but it’s a great idea and so far I like it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
