Great content! Ap crashes frequently. Also, the layout is cute but somewhat cumbersome.

Looking forward to a rewrite

Super happy to pay for the app, love the show This app, however, needs a do-over. It’s hard to figure out, and keeps stopping mid-episode. In addition to the ability to “star” favorite episodes, I also need a way to make episodes as “heard” so they don’t auto-play again.

Useless app

I'm going to get my money back. I can't even find episode I was looking for broadcasted in July 2016. Don't waste your money.

Love Radiolab

Absolutely love Radiolab. One of a kind content. The show is awesome. The app is cool but could work a little better. The interface is beautifully designed and very unique. But it can be a bit confusing to use. Sometimes I find myself swiping around, lost in the menus. Maybe you just have to get used to it. At least its not boring. I also love how easily you can access the older content and blog. I listen to shows over and over again. Such a great program, so much to learn! People seem to be complaining a lot about functionality. I have no issues with it crashing or not working. Not at all. Not sure why others do- maybe the updates weren't current. I feel like a lot of work went into this app and it's a relatively inexpensive product for a top notch program. All told, for the quality of content and the pretty design, the app is worth the price and maybe tolerating a few nuances here and there, IMO. Thank you Jad and Robert... And app devs!

Excellent show, horrible app

From past experience, the content is of course great, but once pressing play, nothing happens. I've never once been able to play an episode

Wonderful show, atrocious app

Why? Why would anyone make such an awful app. It’s too much, with no functionality. I just want to listen to the podcasts, not have an over-animated app with little thought put into the actual functionality.

User interface gets in the way of content

This user interface is confusing and gets in the way of the content your target audience is trying to access. Reminds me of a Flash website in the early 2000s. I'm all for an artistic playful feel but not at the cost of the primary use cases. The playback and downloading is very buggy as well. I did not see any feedback after trying to download an episode as far as anything happening. The app pretty much just felt stuck. Probably the most frustrating bug is the play arbitrarily jumping back to a previous point in the audio for no reason. I love radio lab sooooo much I wanted to support by buying this app but was pretty disappointed with all the bugs. Decided to just switch back to listening via overcast.

Doesn't work

I read the horrible past reviews, however some dated back quite a while. Since they did an update on September 1, 2016.. I assumed they fixed the issues. Nope- The interface (swipe up and down) doesn't work well. It jumps all around and won't stay on the "listen" section. The other problem is the playback. Once you rewind, it will continually jump around to parts in the story, for the remainder of the session. I am pretty disappointed but I should have just stuck with the reviews.

It needs a fix

Not being able to save your spot so you can pickup where you left off is extremely frustrating. I’m also unhappy that I cannot mark episodes that I’ve listened to. I feel like these are key abilities to make this an enjoyable app.
