I have had no problems using the app. This is a good app I advise you to get it 👍

What’s the point of being able to download shows if the downloaded show repeatedly stops after 2 minutes, requiring manual intervention (mainly restarting the app)? Not sure if this is related to internet connection, but mainly seems to happen when I’m commuting to work. Unfortunately this bug means that the app is pretty much unusable for a portable device, which is a shame. This has only been an issue since March, but each update does not fix this fundamental bug, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to report this to the app developers

Was great now can’t use headphones to play and pause

Since the new update, I am unable to play and pause using wireless headphones like beats. Once the music is paused I am unable to press play again unless I go into my phone and press play manually. Very frustrating especially at the gym.
