Great App-Last update is good and not so good
This app is among a handful of my most-used and -valued apps, and I’m grateful to have it. This update made the whole experience of finding content somewhat easier-it’s visually cleaner and more appealing and makes it possible to see a much fuller description of the content of each episode. But some things that I relied on a lot are now gone (particularly being able to close the app and return to the same episode, same place I left off and the ability to create playlists of episodes for easy access on hikes or runs or in the car). And one thing I hoped would be fixed wasn’t-episodes for series are arranged so that, at the end of one episode, the app automatically plays the previous (not the next) episode. This is inconvenient on a run (especially in the winter) and in other circumstances. And I was never able to figure out how to configure playlists to avoid the problem. I hope these issues get fixed soon, but I like the app enough that it gets 4 stars anyway.
It looks cleaner, but seem to have lost all its functionality. One of the things I used most was the favorites list. I can't seem to find a way to put all my favorite conference talks in one place anymore. The second feature I used every day on the old app was that I could be listening to a conference session, hit stop when a talk was over, then the next day hit play to pick up where I left off. Can't seem to do that anymore. Now I have to remember which year, session, and talk I was listening to, click through several layers and screens to get back to that conference session and then find the talk I was on and click play. That makes this a horrible update overall when it comes to simplicity of use. In other words, the two main features I used are now gone. Why?!
Takes forever to load screens, now no audio
I like listening to the scriptures on my drive to work. I listened for a little yesterday but it took a long while for the audio for each chapter to download. Today, as well as taking a long time to download, I now don't have audio. There is no sound. The playbar shows something is going but I don't hear anything (and, yes, I do have the volume turned up :) ). I also wish they would bring back the ability to have continuous listening, from chaper to chapter. I am not sure if this is an Apple IOS issue or an app issue, but, when a chapter is over I have to 'rewake' the phone and press play to go to the next chapter. Hoping the next version will have these improvements.
