Absolutely love Radiolab. One of a kind content. The show is awesome. The app is cool but could work a little better. The interface is beautifully designed and very unique. But it can be a bit confusing to use. Sometimes I find myself swiping around, lost in the menus. Maybe you just have to get used to it. At least its not boring.
I also love how easily you can access the older content and blog. I listen to shows over and over again. Such a great program, so much to learn!
People seem to be complaining a lot about functionality. I have no issues with it crashing or not working. Not at all. Not sure why others do- maybe the updates weren't current. I feel like a lot of work went into this app and it's a relatively inexpensive product for a top notch program.
All told, for the quality of content and the pretty design, the app is worth the price and maybe tolerating a few nuances here and there, IMO. Thank you Jad and Robert... And app devs!
Live Radiolab, Hate this App
Don't waste your money on this app. I brought it for the love of the Radiolab podcast but it doesn't really offer much more functionality than the regular podcast app. I wish it allowed me to hold my place in the playlist (I'm working my way backwards from 2015 to the when the show started), the graphics make the app slow to respond and easy to crash, and there is no sort function or filter that lets you select anything other than the type of podcast (I wish I could select the year, for instance) Save your money for when they come up with a better app :/
Take note, app developers!!!
This terrible app and others like it are what happens when app developers sacrifice user experience in order to be clever. The interface is confusing, it's graphics heavy and crashes all the time, and it doesn't work like it should. Please redo this app and make it easier to navigate and make it actually function properly. I HATE cutesy, boutique-y apps like this. It's about us- the paying customers - and not about how quirky you can be thorough your misguided app design. Whatever company designed this for Radio Lab should be fired.
