What happens???? I give up on this one. It doesn't quit, but the stories just stop. As if only half the story is available. Very disappointing as I love the show.

Horrible Wow what an example of lazy development and no testing. The app is unusable, once I start a station there's no way to change it, even to stop it. I got off of my car and the app not only kept going, but the pause button didn't work. The immediate solution was to mute my phone, bit the permanent solution was to kill the app. What a potty because the stations are pretty good. I uninstalled the app and won't use it again.

Radiolab rocks. App is horrid I love radiolab with a passion. But this app is just awful. A good app is something that does what it sets out to do easily, efficiently, and without unnecessary bloat. This apps approach is similar to gimmicky branded bloatware. If they put half as much energy into optimization, stability, and functionality, as they did into aesthetic design and "cool factor" slick animations and transitions, we'd have something in the realm of acceptable.

Aagh! Why can't I close this app! I have had success listening to radiolab which, alone, makes the app worth it. The app looks cool, seems like it should be cool, but in the end, is a bit confusing. I can't figure out how to quit the app for example.

Never been more disappointed with an app I rarely buy apps. Almost...never. I buy so few apps that I could easily "switch ecosystems" (between Android and iOS) every year and not feel a financial hit. I made an exception for this one because my love for Radiolab runs SO DEEP. I feel so duped. This app is EXTREMELY buggy. It crashes ALL THE TIME. I thought I'd be able to click the download button and load a bunch of shows on my phone for a roadtrip (into places with no cell coverage) but it never works that way. It seems like you can only download a show to your phone once you've listened to it. And then, what's the point? You'd be better served just going to the radiolab website on Chrome and manually downloading episodes and then playing them back on your mediaplayer of choice. Takes only a minute or two per episode, which makes going to the radiolab website about 100X faster than using the custom app. I help off on reviewing this app, hoping things would get better, but they only seem to get worse. FOR SHAME.
