  • Unfair subscription policy

    By HossRadbourn
    Signed up for premium. I cancelled and should have had access to premium until 8/25. The app cut me off and there was no way to restore my purchase. Very frustrating. Aside from that, it is a mostly meh app with occasional connection issues.

  • No iPad optimization

    By Youmg Sandwich
    Trying to use the app on iPad is pointless. There are black empty bars on the side of the app and it does not transition to horizontal mode at all. I switched to the web player in Safari.
  • Bug breaks current experience

    By David Bruggink
    After selecting a podcast on an iPhone 10xr I’m unable to go back to the podcast to see other episodes. The top left and top right buttons cannot be tapped.
  • iPad?

    By Jake100000066
    App is great but seems poorly optimized for iPad, I use my iPad entirely and would love a slightly more user friendly interface
  • The reason you exist is great but...

    By rollo999
    I’m an iPad Pro owner, and this is a paying app. Wouldn’t you say this is good reason to build an iPad app ?! For heaven sake‘s, really, no iPad app?! Come on guys... in addition, the app forces you to turn the iPad vertically which is like turning your computer vertically. Why do so many developers force us to except an iPhone app on an iPad. Do you know what, it’s arbitrary, you just force all this on us. Come on, you know I’m telling you the truth. I’ll build a goddamn iPad app
  • Good content annoying app

    By 温迪在美国
    I like the content of this and enjoy some of the shows regularly. However, the forced updates are so annoying and get in the way when I’m out for a drive and just wanna listen to one episode. Think I might unsubscribe.
  • Great app, even better content

    By Holly_V7
    App works well but the content is the real star. Dozens of great podcasts across genres.
  • I love Russell Brand

    By BrookeJoy11
    I got the app so that I could listen to under the skin. It has been the most amazing experience. I absolutely adore Russell Brand and all of the guests, basically every episode is profoundly moving!
