Fantastic app with the best podcasts

I’m loving the Grio’s podcasts and using this app. I have enjoyed journalism on the website before now. Would highly recommend to anyone who seeks to know more about the Black experience, especially in the US; and anyone who likes comedy, pop culture, history, and entertaining podcasts.

Great programming needs fixin’ - Here’s how

I recently watched the interview with eboni k williams and iyanla and i constantly ran into some technical problems that i feel can be easily fixed.

1. The screen automatically goes into landscape mode, and when switching apps or minimize the screen freezes and becomes glitchy and i have to force close the app. Please fix that.

2. Also there is no option to share videos via social or text in the app.. how do you expect us to organically promote? The layout of this app gives social friendly, please function as such or provide the tools at least.

3. There is no search option in the app. Or at least put a favorites or bookmark feature.
