Came for the content, stayed for the functionality

I'm a hardcore member of the Rapapack so as soon as I got word that Michael Rapaport was moving his podcast over to Luminary, I signed up. For a long time I only had 3 podcasts I listened to on Luminary. The recent change to Apple Podcasts was the straw that broke the camel's back though. I couldn't take it for long. I switched all my podcasts over to Luminary where it isn't confusing to distinguish between what I've already listened to and what is new to me. I understand they have a lot of original content but I'm busy enough keeping up with the shows I already enjoy...I like this app even without having heard the original content. I love being able to customize the home screen of My Shows. I've got everything in groupings that are pleasing to me. There hasn't been a show I've looked up and wasn't able to find on Luminary so far. I guess my only complaint would be that the home page pushes the original shows. I'd love to be able to exclude certain things. I don't want to see Russell Brand's face every time I open Luminary. Unless some drastic change bums me out, I'm planning on keeping Luminary for the long haul.

I am obsessed with all of the spooked stories. Listening to stories while working everyday has become an addiction at this point. The only thing that I can come up with that would make It better would be to have some sort of system identifying if a particular episode is on the free subscription on the Apple podcast app- just so I don’t have to listen to half of the episode before realizing I’ve already heard It.

Developer Response ,

Hi Krystle, we're so happy to hear that you love Spooked as much as we do! While we don't have this identified automatically, there is a 'select multiple' option on the show's details page where you can then mark episodes as played to which you've already listened. If you have questions or any other feedback, please feel free to reach out to us directly at support@luminarypodcasts.com or by going to My Shows - Settings - Report an issue (or) Suggest an improvement. Thank you! — Luminary Support

Need more features

I really really wish i can sort my episodes better.
1. If an episode is already played, I don’t even want to see it on the list. Yet it’s still there and keeps randomly playing old episodes
2. I want to sort and see only luminary episodes and not the ones from the Podcast app because I already listened to all those. It’s frustrating to have to keep listening to every episode only to realize you already heard it then have to manually mark it as played and then keep going down the list but the old played episodes still show on the list.
