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

Love the show, love the app. The app is far from perfect but the update helped tremendously. Hopefully you're a few bug fixes away from perfection. Overall, well worth the money. I haven't regretted my purchase at all.

The worst app ever Continually crashes, only allows you to download five episodes, unable to restart failed downloads, unable to skip forward by small increments. Worst of all, developer offers no support, and doesn't appear to read feedback or attempt to resolve issues.

Great shows 5/5 Good app 3/5 a few issues with the player that could be forgiven if it just stopped crashing.
