    I'm thrilled to have this app! I like to listen to it while I take my walks in the morning. The only complaint is that every once in a while it freezes up on my Galaxy Nexus. It says it's playing but no audio; and when I close it & reopen, it acts like it

    I love this app for long car rides. We listen to these like short stories, they're funny and intriguing and give us something to talk about. Thanks, Ira!

    What can I say. It just doesn't work. Can't get anything to play. Says playing but it isn't.
