Features good - Streaming don't know
I haven't figured out if I'm listening to a stream or a local mp3 that was downloaded. I suspect streaming which might be a problem when network connectivity isn't working well.
Multiple device and desktop sync works as expected.
I can read almost a show's whole title in the list and I can tap anywhere on the list item to get the details, helpful.
The ability to comment from the device I listen on is great. Typically I don't comment because because when i think of something, i forget it before I get the chance to visit the site. Facebook integration is useful but since I'm a dev integration with linked in, my professional social network, might be better.
Tag search against all episodes in the dotnetrocks lineup is very useful for when I'm telling someone about a show I once heard, I can find it easily. Plus the search tool showed me all episodes for a given SME.
Output control - Can't switch between Bluetooth and iPhone using the app
Speed controls - Can't speed up or slow down the audio
Advance rewind controls - Can't jump ahead in 30 second increments and rewind in 15 second increments
Out of date
Only has shows through August 2017....
iOS 9 crashes
Doesn't load in iOS 9 - worked great before 9
Wish it has playlist support like it does on their website
