Save currently played podcast episode and position within it between app launches

The app has a wonderful set of lectures/interviews that one can download on the iPhone before going for a walk. Unfortunately, unlike built-in Apple Podcasts, the app does not remember what was the episode that was playing when user exited the app, nor the position within that episode. As a workaround, user can always make screenshots of the app before exit, to remember the name and exact position within the listened episode. It would be nice if the app saved this data between launches. Thank you.

The CSPAN Radio app is great if you like political news. It seems they have made it much more stable. It now stays connected much better, even in rural areas.

I was using a different general radio app (on iPhone). But lately that app does not like to stay connected and very often repeats words or phrases. So the C-SPAN radio app is now a better alternative.

Want to love but it keeps crashing

I’m really enjoying being able to listen to this radio while having the screen off and letting it run while I do my work. But too often it crashes. It frequently pauses on its own and won’t resume unless I get back into the app and re-enter the stream. Other times it will just crash out of the app completely. It’s very frustrating and defeats the purpose of having it stream with the screen off. If that bug could be fixed, that would greatly improve the experience of the app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoy listening with your screen off, but sorry you are having to re-launch the stream or the app. We'd like our users' experience to be as smooth as possible and will have our development team investigate any stability issues.
