It is nice to see that so many of you have stuck with the application to see it through to this recent update. I can see from my statistics provided by Apple, that many have already gotten the newest version of the application.

I hope that you find it is more reliable, and more functional. I would appreciate any feedback you have to offer.

Many have been asking for a playlist queue, which is under development now, and hopefully can make it into your hands in the next month or two.

    Well, it was nice to see apple finally push out a version!

    Sadly, the ability to quickly get to the “hour news” just sucks…

    It takes:

    1 tap
    2 swipes
    2 taps

    and then, there is not even a “bookmark” option to help us from having to go through all that hunting just to listen to the hourly news updates. (one of the most on-demand feature provided by NPR)

    So, my biggest request for a next version…. add a bookmark link for those items stored multiple levels down in the “podcast” directory.

    Or, even better yet, add a new feature down in the “search/browse/bookmark” bar called “popular” where YOU (the developer) hardcode the most popular NPR feeds. (hourly news, weekend editions, car talk, etc, etc… ie: those things people actually listen too and shouldn’t have to hunt for)

    At this point, I’ve just created a bookmark on my home screen that links directly to the hourly news feed. Yeah, it requires Safari to open for a brief second… but that is better then 3 taps, 2 swipes, and having to hunt through multiple screens.

    All that said, I was very happy to see the new version pushed out. I have enjoyed access to more feeds a great deal. It is nice to know you have stuck with development, even given the problems you’ve faced with getting updates pushed out!
