I used the previous app 99% to listen to classical music, now I can’t even find it, if it’s still even a part of the new app? Usually a change should result in a benefit? Deleted it!

I had the old app and could listen to everything and anything at my leisure. I am a CBC junkie and this new app is terrible. Don’t waste your time subscribing.

Can’t find anything now. What have you done?

Developer Response ,

Sorry you can't find what you're looking for. Within the On Demand, CBC Podcasts and Music Playlists sections, you can search by tapping "Search Shows" (previously-aired) or "Search Podcasts" or "Search Playlists" (by genre). Hope that helps? We aim to improve the search feature so it's more obvious in future releases. Thank you for your feedback!
