Great content. But mostly bad app

I wouldn’t use this app if the podcast feeds were updated thoroughly and promptly. But the podcast “highlights from the Pat Kenny show” for example misses many segments.

So first thing- the fast forward and rewind in iPhone control Centre and on Bluetooth controls are broken when listening back. (I don’t expect them to work while live - although that would be amazing). So whenever I tap forward or back in control Centre/Bluetooth the app starts the entire segment over again. And of course that means I can’t find my place!! Which brings me to the next thing—- remembering where we are in a listen back segment would be excellent!

Also no offline playback. That would be nice. But I do think this may be possible with an account but I am unable to set one up via the app as the buttons crash or something every time I try to sign up with Facebook or google. And trying to sign up with email doesn’t work after filling out the account form.

Anyways otherwise its kinda wonky but it works! Like you can most definitely listen live and kinda very uncomfortably listen back. It’s free so and the content is amazing so I can’t be complaining too much.

4.5 Star App

I love the Newstalk app, use it both on iPhone and iPad. I reinstalled the Newstalk app recently - working great now. Clean effective design. One quibble - the app is not “timezone adjusted” e.g. I’m in California right now listening to OTB but the screen says I’m listening to Pat Kenny’s morning show. You can do better, NT! And I’ll give you a 5* if you do. Still, kudos to all!

Seldom a reviewer. ,

Horrible app

The station has great content but the app is very slow and hard to navigate. Content is poorly titled as you will usually find everything listed under the title of the individual show with no clear sub header to explain the topic under discussion.
