Do not download!

This app has interesting articles and videos. However, it will constantly crash in the middle of watching videos, listening to interviews and reading articles. The fact that this app has zero support and costs this much money is ridiculous. Please fix this app it does have potential.

great access to current news and information on psychological science

PsycExplorer is a nifty tool that brings together a variety of video, audio, and text sources of current information in a range of psychological science topics. It scans high quality sources to put them at your fingertips, categorized by subdiscipline (e.g., personality, therapy, cognitive, critical thinking, etc.). Allows email forwards and tweeting of entries. The only limitation I note is that you can only browse content in the predefined categories. There is no search feature. I really enjoy it, particularly when I have some free time, for entering a category and scrolling through the many entries to look for interesting new reports.

Disclaimer: I was, by way of a general invitation to a psychology professors' listserv, invited to review a beta version of this app. In exchange, I received a free copy of the app. However, if I did not like the app in the first place, I would not have installed and used it. This review, to the best of my knowledge, accurately reflects the app and does not omit any issue other than the one mentioned.
