Love the app BUT!

As of iOS 12 this app crashes on start so it is unusable!

There were also some previous ongoing issues. Trying to visit your listening history resulted in the app crashing.

I will update to 5 stars if the development team can fix these issues because this app is actually excellent when it works!


Was a 5 Star App

This app used to be my favorite source of news and podcasts. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the developers have not kept up with iOS updates rendering it useless. I won’t give up yet, but I hope there are plans in the works to get it back up and running again soon...


Works Almost Never

I don’t understand how an app can have so many bugs for so long without fixing any...usually you can only play one cast and the next one usually doesn’t play at all or allow you to skip, forcing you to close the app. Great idea that is horribly executed without any attempts to get better. Lazy.
