Love the app BUT!

As of iOS 12 this app crashes on start so it is unusable!

There were also some previous ongoing issues. Trying to visit your listening history resulted in the app crashing.

I will update to 5 stars if the development team can fix these issues because this app is actually excellent when it works!

Quick News From The AP

Most of this app features 1-minute-or-less audio news stories from the Associated Press. You can customize by topic, and everything automatically plays with no ads. It’s a pleasant way to get quick, up-to-date news. There’s other less-interesting content, like some business and trend podcasts from the likes of American Public Media and others.

You could listen to these stories on the native Apple Podcasts app (just search for “AP Audio Stories”) but I like this app too.
