    Shouldn't charge for something this prone to crashing, with confusing ui for what's saved, downloading, or not yet downloading.

    I am softening my previous review because the developer did send a reply, which is unusual (in my experience) and I appreciate it. It's good to know that the app is being actively worked on and should receive updates soon to address the functional problems. If you have not yet purchased then I would wait until at least the next update, because it currently does not work at all on my two Android de

    Want to support the product and the show so I don't mind that I paid but this app is really unstable, crashes a lot and freezes. Keeps leaving out recent shows unless I constantly refresh it shows April and earlier. I must agree, don't buy until they fix the bugs. Too many.

    LOVE This American Life, DESPISE the app- used to open no problems, now crashes as soon as I try to open the app. Their tech team is failing miserably- lots of other users having the same issue. Fix it please!!!

    This app was ok, but has become nearly useless since the latest update. I've lost all my heard and saved shows, and can no longer manually mark shows as heard. I can no longer filter. The app crashes constantly. Very poor.

    Terrible app. Loaded with bugs. Can't seem to play audio with the app in background, so forget about playing an episode while navigating somewhere. Can't rewind around the stream at all.

    The functionality of the pervious app, although a bit clunky, was great. Since the update, I can't search, filter or manually mark shows as heard. Also, a bunch of shows I had previously marked as heard have been unmarked. I will change my rating once the app has been fixed. Great show, poor app.
