Ratings and Reviews
Filter Functionality Lacking
This is mentioned in another review but I feel the need to reiterate that this app desperately needs the ability to filter out played episodes. With over 450 episodes included in my membership, it is getting really cumbersome having to scroll through to find which episode I left off on. I appreciate the ability to mark which episodes have been played but I’m disappointed this isn’t something you can filter or sort by. Please consider this update, Crime Junkie app developers!
Developer Response ,
Hey there! We really appreciate your feedback and actually are working on a feature for this currently! We would love to hear your opinions on how this should look. If you are interested, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can hear more about this.
Just Not Worth It
I had been a $10 Patreon of Crime Junkie for about 3 years up until about 5 months ago (college finances got tight). I didn’t love the initial switch over to the app, since it was so laggy and buggy when it first dropped. About a week ago I renewed my Patreon membership, and I’m incredibly disappointed. The app is still buggy (crashes, audio cuts in and out). Besides all that, I’m not getting the content I paid for. They claim you get a “backlog” of episodes, but that content isn’t unlocked because I’m paying monthly and not annually, I guess. It’s not even that I can’t listen to the episodes from between when I cancelled my subscription and when I renewed it- I can’t listen to some of the episodes I had previously been able to access with a monthly subscription. I’m upset- the Patreon membership and the app it comes with is a cash grab and not at all worth the money you’re paying for it, unless you want to pay $100+ up front.
A little work needed
I wish this app had the feature to sort through the episodes you’ve already listened to. It would be much easier to find the content I haven’t heard yet. It would also be more helpful if you could sort by downloaded episodes when you’re out of service and no WiFi to find the episodes you’ve downloaded without scrolling.
These would make this app so much more user friendly!
