Stunning gift to the World

The internet archive is a vast trove of live recordings unknown by most people. Also the IA’s website is such a kludge as to be almost unusable.
This app makes it easy to search or browse, and listen to the Gold Mine that is The IA. The thing that really impressed me is that as long as is not forced closed, it doesn’t lose your place! Leave and when you get back, just press play to continue where you left off! Listening history shows which track already played, partly and unplayed. Dev’s passion for this resource and App Dev really shows. GET THIS APP and SUPPORT future development! Also, check out the extensive notes about the updates dev is now posting on his website linked in the App Store

Hi, so I had over a 100 shows saved on my phone from different artists (4 months of saving) and my phone doesn’t work anymore.
Could you implement a way to create an account so that I can access the shows on my phone and iPad. Another idea is a paid subscription so that we can download the shows offline. Thank you.

A Map to Memory Lane

Great app. Makes these archives easily navigable and searchable. Really like how it provides quick notations for recording types. Maybe I’m gushing because it helped me find a soundboard version of one of my favorite shows from the Dead’s famed spring ‘77 tour that I used to listen to over and over as a comparatively poor-quality taper version. Kudos.

Developer Response ,

Oh that's so awesome that you were able to find that recording! Reading this made me so happy! Thank you!
