Ratings and Reviews
Great subscription, ok app
Love the subscription. The app is ok. Seems some of the bugs have been corrected (it used to stop playing if your screen went to sleep), but I still find the app lacking. My son likes to listen to a talk while falling asleep, but the app doesn’t seem to have any options to only play the one talk. It just keeps going, until I wake up at 1am to the sound of talking, just to discover it is still playing. Overall, the app has little in the way of settings, and generally I just the Browser instead.
What a treat for the heart AND mind!
I loved the paid subscription resources while I had them: these guys turned my 15-year-old into a church history enthusiast in a way that would have been very hard (yeah, pretty much impossible) to duplicate, but wow, what a help she is in our family study now!
And we’re still enjoying the many (so many, thank you!) resources on the guest version of the app, looking forward to the day it makes a little more sense to subscribe again.
Good content but not as user friendly
I love listening to the content; it is uplifting and fun. However, I wish there was an option to auto play next item or that you could just go to the “next podcast” rather than having to scroll through the entire list again to find the one you need.
