The same head-bangingly frustrating problems exist after purported "bug fixes" in the latest update. I was disappointed to find that after owning it for over a year, and several updates, it's still full of bugs. I'm being promoted to our corporate office and I'll get a new work phone.This means aaaaaaaaall my history will go away when I delete the app.
This week, Apple unleashed i OS 9, the latest version of the operating system that runs all of the company’s i Phones, i Pads and i Pod Touches, onto the general public.
After applying the latest i OS update and rebooting their devices, many users came to find that Podcasts, Apple’s proprietary podcast app for i OS, was no longer working.
It's no longer possible to pause your listening, quit the app, and pick up where you left off. What could have possessed them to release this shoddy upgrade??!! Same thing when you tap "Download"—nothing, nada, zip! I would love to hear Ira address this problem on the show. Except, of course, we'd never be able to hear it unless we caught it on the radio. I eventually decided to delete and redownload, but upon opening, found that no episodes would display newer than May 2014, and the "Recently Aired" seems to also date from this time.
-------------------Apparently TAL can't seem to find someone who knows how to write an app that works. TAL is one of my favorite podcasts, and so I jumped at the chance to get a $3 app to hear them all. It sounds small, but it affects the experience more than I would have thought. You can only do the "10-second rewind" inside the app, not on the lock screen or from the control center. It does seem that the newer episodes can be searched, though. I have hundreds of shows marked as "heard it" on my work phone.
Users can download five shows at a time for offline listening. Like everyone else here, I love the show, but I really hate this app.
Plus a 24 hour live stream of episodes, exclusive audio, video and text extras, staff picks, searching by contributor, and more. The old version certainly wasn't perfect, but at least it worked!
Another 1.5 million people download the weekly podcast.
It is hosted by Ira Glass, produced in collaboration with Chicago Public Media, delivered to stations by PRX The Public Radio Exchange, and has won all of the major broadcasting awards.
Now I'll be working from home sometimes and have a shorter commute on other days.
I'll have to listen to one show a day verses the two a day I used to look forward to.
We have stories this week where seals, wolves and a moose drop in and show us who isn't boss.
