Great Content - Poor App

As a longtime Planet Money fan, I jumped on this app as soon as I heard about it. The Planet Money podcast is fabulous, but the app is terrible. Frequent crashes; long load times; and general instability have plagued this app from Day 1.

The most current release may be more stable. I don't know. They seem to have removed the ability to download episodes for later listening - likely to address the stability problem. However, now the app is pretty much useless to me, as the times when I historically listen is when I am offline (and have time to listen with the most focus).

Historically I have used the app to queue up lots of episodes to listen to, binge-style, when I am offline (e.g. Airplane rides; mountain driving; etc.), so I apparently can't do that now. Instead, I'll have to ditch the app and go back to downloading episodes the old fashioned way and then manually sync them to my phone "like an animal!" (1st world problem, I know).

Again, the Planet Money podcast is wonderful. The app just isn't great at delivering that content.

Great content, good app

I love the additional content that goes along with the stories. The audio sounds great. I haven't ran into any problems.

Great app for planet money lovers

love the offline streaming mode as well
