Needs major improvement

So I was directed to this app to listen to a special exclusive podcast content. The episode is 2 hours in length. The app gives you no ability to save/bookmark your position or fast forward. So unless you want to listen in 1 sitting this is useless.

In response to the developer comment. Bookmarking the user's position in the app is a Must have and not a nice to have. People listen to podcasts when they are on the go and don't have time to be constantly fast forwarding to where they left off. Also the screen with the fast forward slider does not indicate the time stamp so even if you know the exact minute and second you left off you still need to manually find your place through trial and error.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback! For fast-forwarding, there's a bar at the bottom of your screen that lets you drag the blue dot forward and backward on a story.

Please email us at spokefeedback@siriusxm.com if we can help you with anything else.

A truly terrible app

Madave350

Like other users, I was sent here to listen to an exclusive episode of a podcast I love that is 2 hours in length.

The lack of bookmarking is terrible. I hadn't intended to listen to the episode in one sitting, just listening little by little until I was done. You can imagine how excited I was to find out I had to listen and fast forward through the podcast to find my spot again. Even having to manually bookmark would be better. Even though there is a "progress bar" at the bottom to help with scrubbing through episodes, there is no time stamp. So I had to make note of my time every time I stopped listening to the episode.

Now on to Bluetooth. I don't even know how this is possible, but the audio quality is HORRENDOUS when listening via my apple airpords or my car. The audio skips and distorts. I ONLY had this problem when listening via Bluetooth. Going back and listening to the podcast again with wired headphones is the only way.

Play/pause doesn't work at all on lock screen or on the control center. Sporadically had issues with the play/pause in the app too.

Lacking basic features

Preiman790

So I have to wonder how someone decides to release an audio app of any kind, without adding in the ability to rewind, fast forward or save your place for later? When you add in the app's habit of crashing more or less at random, those missing features go from a serious irritant to something that makes the app unusable. I'm not eden going to get into the other issues with the app, of which there are oh so many, because they pale in comparison to what I mentioned already. Last time I've seen a company fail this badly at app design was the last time I opened Skype.

Thanks for your feedback. We're always working on improving the platform. For fast-forwarding and rewinding, there's a bar at the bottom of your screen that lets you drag the blue dot forward and backward on a story. You can also use the back arrow to skip to the previous 15 seconds.
