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

Needs Improvement I love This American Life, and the ability to download episodes for offline listening is great. The thing that annoys me about the app, however, is the inability to play the episode with the screen powered off. Please fix this! I want to get more use out of this app.

Great content but can't remove the episode from my notification bar once played - I have to restart my phone to get rid of it.

Great show but glitchy app Love tal and this is great for getting all the shows but the app is a little frustrating and glitchy. Patience required.

Content is great, app is not Horribly glitchy. Crashes 2/3 times it is opened. App messes up when trying to download episodes for offline use. Only allows for 5 shows of offline download. I am glad to support TAL, but the developers should not have received a dime for this horrendous app.
