What's New in Version 1.20.17
Support for larger screen sizes
I am a philosopher, so you might expect me to like listening to philosophy. But it is not just the fact that it is philosophy. The philosophers chosen are top notch, and the interviews - dialogues - are get a lot covered in a short amount of time. I am learning a lot, even just on the way to work.
Love the update
The app now fits my screen and is super elegant and useful. I love the continuous playback on/off option.
But of course the app is only a vehicle for accessing some of the internet's best content.
I hope the show continues for many years!!
One of the most interesting and insightful reasons for having a phone ever !
