1. A large and well rounded selection.
2. Downloadable content.
3. Able to create playlists.
The not so good:
1. If you leave the app for 2 minutes it restarts and you have to look for what you were listening to.
2. It won't continue playing after a phone call, which usually also means that you have to search for what you were listening to (as was pointed out above).
3. Should have a '30 second rewind' and a '30 second forward' button so there no need to try and scroll exactly a certain amount of time in either direction.
4. Sometimes it loses your place so it might restart 15 behind.
New Version Highly Buggy
While the old version had some bugs. The new one doesn’t let me watch shuirm and has to “restart” when this happens. It also will only let me attempt to download some shuirim as videos, not as audio only. Hope these problems get fixed soon as I think if the developers push an update it should be better than the older version.
P. S. I would have sent this review as a feedback. But there’s no option to do that on the new app.
Download needs improvement
Looks nice but harder to search and filter. Also I get an error message every time I try to delete a downloaded file.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
