Great program, but terrible App
I find this app to be very difficult to use. The articles are constantly auto-refreshing and bringing me back to the top, which then causes me to repeatedly have to scroll back down to where I was. Changing the orientation of the screen causes this as well. There is usually *a lot* of extra space between top images and the transcript (which is usually what I look for), so I end up having to scroll a lot just to begin. Honestly, I hardly ever use this app because I find it to be so frustrating. I read the news provided by the AP and NPR apps regularly, on the other hand; maybe you can get some ideas from their formatting.
I have young children, and find it easier to get news quietly on my mobile device when I have a moment, rather than tuning in and running the risk of exposing my children to unsettling stories.
I'd appreciate it if you could release an update that addresses the technical issues I mentioned. Thank you.
Can't play while screen locked?
I can understand why the app might not play in the background (harder to program and somewhat locked down by Apple) but....
Why can't I lock my screen and listen? If screen is locked and dark playback is audio is stopped even for podcast downloads! This is bad for battery life as well as security - screen on all the time takes down my battery, plus I can't put it in my pocket 'cause the controls are live. Lastly, the Play button is ludicrously small especially for the News Hour's demographic.
Love the news hour, but hate all the current implementations of podcasts. sorry. Hoping for improvements soon.
Fix This App!
I feel like this app deserves less than three stars, but out of respect for PBS newshour I couldn't bring myself to rate it any lower.
This app has many issues!
PBS if you ever read this, FIX YOUR APP
This would be an awesome medium to receive news on a mobil platform, but it almost has too many bugs to make it worth it. I would love to use this app as my main source of news, though it crashes on such a frequent basis that I can hardly stand to open the app anymore. Please do your program the huge favor of fixing this app, I guarantee that your daily audience would increase exponentially.
