Great content, awkward app

I love what I’m hearing and learning but it’s hard to find my way around the app. It needs to keep track of my history so 1) I can refer back to the content if I choose, and 2) I am not offered the same content again and again if I’ve already listened to it. Also, I’d like to be able to search content by key word (specific subject not just general categories) not just author or title. Not sure I’ll subscribe when my free weeks expire.

A portable best of NBIC

I have enjoyed this app. It’s well-thought out and well-planned. I love having the Book Bites, and I enjoy the podcasts. It helps me learn while walking and is fun. Best of all, when other #NBIC members recommend podcasts, they’re all easily accessible. I like having access to runners up as well as finalists. Thanks, #NBIC team.
