Good but not great. Yet.

Great app. Spectacular content. By far it’s content is it’s high point. There are few out there like it. Even putting aside the corny voices they try to do (does take away a bit from it) it is great! The voices (reenacting past conversations in events) are cringy and I find myself fast forwarding or even steering away from certain episodes. It would be nice just to have the dialog without trying to add the inflections of the original voice (I.e. trump, Skip Bayless, Henry Ford III). The conversations are brutal. Just say the say and walk away haha.

Finally the biggest downside and the reason I am stepping away is because of the app. It’s by far one of the most frustrating parts. When your in a series and want to look at another season within the series, the drop down menu works, then blinks off. Then you can’t do anything. Can’t pick another season, series, or anything. You have to shut the app down and start over. With how short the episodes are your constantly having to do this just to listen. I can get the same content on podcast app through Apple iOS and not have this issue. There are quite a few more that make it seem like a start up app and not a fully formed stable app. I do subscribe (Wondery+) but it seems as though this might be a mistake.

Thanks for the content though!

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!

Poor Interface & App Development

I love some of the shows on this platform but my lower rating lies solely on the poor app development. It’s clunky and slow. It’s a pain to try and get it to work if you’re offline, even when you’ve downloaded the episodes. I even have Wondery+ and this app is still pretty crappy. It also will kick you out and make you log in again fairly often. Even if you had it open listening to it in the morning, by the afternoon it will make you sign in again which is annoying. I don’t even have it on another device so it’s not like it’s because I was using it somewhere else, it just logs me out. Also I don’t share my account with anyone so again it doesn’t log me out related to any glitches with that. I like the shows but this is probably my least favorite interface to listen on. If I could get the exclusive content elsewhere I probably would just because I hate fighting with this app. Also, this app drains my battery fastest compared to other platforms…
