User reviews of This American Life
I had this application on my old iPhone 3G and it was my favorite app. Worked flawlessly. On my Samsung Epic, the app crashes immediately upon playing any audio. Back when it was functioning, (older version) all episodes would restart after 15 minutes, there was no way to skip forward or backwards in an episode, it would just start over from the beginning when you tried to seek throughout the track.

I feel just a little better knowing This American Life is always close to me. Thank you Ira - Chicago rules! SGSV

Love the show - but the app works terribly. I get cut off in the middle all the time - and if my reception dies for a minute, the program doesn't respond at all. Also - no way to pause a show in the middle and come back a few hours later at the same spot

I love the program, but the app crashes a lot, and it doesn't add the new podcast for about 3 or 4 days.

Great show, wish we could download more podcasts to listen to off line. App can be a bit temperamental but worth sticking with it to hear the shows.
