I listen to speeches while doing yard work and other jobs around the house. This app is so interesting because it includes so much more than General Conference. I love Elder Holland’s conference addresses but now I can listen to all of his BYU speeches including so many encouraging speeches from his time as BYU president. I love that I can download them too in case I don’t have great cell coverage. The controls and operation of the app have a small learning curve but it is not difficult.
Not functional yet and no way to give feedback except by this comment
Just downloaded the app and the swipe left or right feature pulls up some apparent options to perform some function, however these options only show on the screen as long as you don’t release your finger. If you do release your finger to go to engage the menu item that appeared from swiping, the item disappears/snaps back as if you had not swiped it. You also cant access the talk.
There is also currently no feedback feature to report problems. The app store does have a contact the developer feature which opens up a webpage in Safari but there is no contact information on the website. This may just be a start up glitch and I really look forward to using this app as it is intended to function.
Developer Response ,
I’m sorry for the confusion — hopefully we can clear this up with a brief explanation. The primary way to interact with a speech is to simply tap on it to begin listening to the audio file or pause it if that speech is currently playing. All speeches have an audio file, but some will have additional options, for example, if they have a link to a video file or a webpage, or if the speaker has more than one speech, then you have a few additional options. The swiping is designed intentionally to work as you found out, by swiping across the width of a speech. When swiping from left to right, this will automatically download the audio file, cancel the download if it hasn’t completed yet, or delete the file if it has already been downloaded. When swiping from right to left, you can quickly add or remove the speech from the queue. To access the other options, simply keep the swipe very short, an inch is more than enough. If you see the outside icon on either side move to cover the other options (if there are any), then when you lift your finger it will perform the associated action. A long swipe across a speech is a shortcut for a short swipe and a tap of the first button — two actions for one swipe. Again, this swiping feature was deliberately implemented to make the most common functions easier to use, much like Apple’s own Mail app — swiping from right to left will delete a message, and from left to right will mark it as read. You can see similar functionality in the Notes, Reminders, Phone, and other apps.
To sum up, a long swipe will automatically perform the first action so you don’t have to swipe and tap a button. A short swipe will give you additional buttons to press and may vary depending on the particular speech.
Thanks for noting that there wasn't a way to give feedback! I’ve created an email address and will add an option to send an email in a future update. Thanks for using the app and helping to make it better for all who use it!
Excellent and bug-free app to hear LDS speeches!
I haven’t really found a flaw yet in this app. They are very straightforward about the purpose of the app—stream, download, and listen to enjoy amazing speeches. I’ve quickly found it my app of choice in organizing and accessing LDS talks.
