    I love this American life, but this app is pretty unreliable. I wish it wouldn't crash so much and load episodes quickly.

    I thought it was my cheap phone and mediocre coverage that was causing the daily crashes and freezes. But no: I upgraded both, and still episodes freeze, stutter, randomly go back to the beginning, randomly won't save episodes for later playback, etc. Ha

    App is super buggy, crashes regularly, cannot handle fast forwarding or rewinding the episodes. Pretty basic stuff, cannot do. Free apps work better than this but I love TAL and want to still get the episodes so I'm stuck. LAME.

    Great show but the app is a little buggy. It won't shut off when I tell it to, which makes restarting the app really frustrating.

    Prepare for crashes, playback issues and a failure to shut down. Super duper annoying Ira Glass
