Ratings and Reviews
AMAZING content— the app is another story
(I will preface this by saying I am a former journalist who now works on a UX team, so my feedback is from both a personal and professional standpoint!) I absolutely love Wondery and truly believe this is best team of storytellers out there. The hosts are engaging, informative and creative, and the shows encompass an excellent variety of topics. It is clear the group works REALLY hard to deliver fresh content regularly. The music tracks are nice/not overpowering, the editing is clean, and I find the overall production quality strong, which is so impressive in the era of at-home recording. I was pumped when the app was rolled out because I devour Wondery episodes and wanted to ditch the ads (I do enjoy this perk of the subscription). However, the app is buggy and glitchy. I have to close and relaunch it multiple times per day, sometimes hourly. Playback stalls constantly, shows do not necessarily automatically resume, and the layout/navigation is not intuitive. I do a lot of fumbling and clicking. I think some simple user testing and validation would go a long way in improving the experience, so I have no doubt the developers will continue iterating and improving. For now, though, while they work out the kinks, I am not sure if the value matches the price point. I will conclude by saying it pains me, a total Wondery fanatic, to leave a less-than-glowing review here. BUT, I know the team will nail it, just like they do everything else!

Great content, terrible app
I want to like this app. I really do. But it’s a hot mess! Several issues plague this app that don’t effect other podcast players. Here’s a few;
You’re listening to a podcast & you get a call, the app doesn’t pause & resume after the call. Oh no. It resets itself & you have to reload it from the start. If you’re lucky the show you were listening to held its place. Pause a show to look up something? Full reset. Stay paused for too long? Yep full reset. Here’s another issue. The fast forward & rewind buttons don’t work when playing. You can literally wind up anywhere in a shows timeline if you make the mistake of touching those buttons. The content gets scattered all over the home screen of the app with no sense of organization. It won’t save a playlist of shows you’re listening to. No notifications of new episodes so you have to keep checking. I could go on but it’s in several reviews already. Just read up. Bottom line... I got the subscriber feed from the website & just downloaded them from there in another player. I love the content. The shows are fantastic. I’m a subscriber. But this app isn’t worth the trouble.
Fix this Wondery!!!

Echoing Robert Whites review
I was prepped to pay for the content. I really enjoy some of their podcasts. I got so frustrated during my free trial that I cancelled early. Podcasts starting over after anything happens in iOS was already enough to put me over the top. But another super irritating thing is I listen at 1.5x most the time and that would reset and you’d have to cycle back through the speeds to get it fixed but if you do that too fast it wouldn’t pick it up right. It’s like the state management in this app is completely an afterthought. I’m usually pretty forgiving as I myself am a software developer but it’s like there was zero testing done on the features that exist.
I think the primary reason I ended up dropping the subscription and why I’m writing this review is because most people listen to podcasts while driving and this app effectively makes it unsafe to use unless you’re okay listening to the same episode repeatedly and slowly due to all the bugs.
I’m honestly stunned the app has over 4 stars in aggregate. It currently fails as a podcast player which is a shame because the content is excellent.
