Pros and cons of Otto - Audio books & Podcasts app for iPhone and iPad

Otto - Audio books & Podcasts app good for

Its being my go to app when I want to listen to some news and some interesting podcast combination in any time combination. Very well casted.
Let me start by saying that this is an amazing app. Ive been looking for an app that blends internet radio, podcasts, and news broadcasts together and this is it! Slick UI, easy to use and comprehend. An all-around amazing app.
This app really deserves more attention. Its ingenious design and better speech recognition than apples Siri just made me fall in love with this app. I found this app on freemyapps.com and is to this day the only app Ive enjoyed from there and have not uninstalled. Great work!
I love getting my news and fun interesting podcast form this app I cant even start on the customizations.
Finally! A smart, modern podcast app. The news and articles are gravy.
Cute and lighthearted puts a smile on my face every time I open it. But dont let cute fool you, it does great at finding stuff that falls well in the interests you choose - whether news, podcasts or both. Cant imagine anyone hating this joy on my iPhone.

Some bad moments

My interests are quite specific, and I already have discovered a handful of podcasts which cater to them. But in this app, even with extensive searching, I cant find or play my favorite podcasts with this app. Ive searched podcasts by name, host and subject matter and they dont come up. Ok, so I try to search for my specific interests and find a random episode somewhere that seems like I might like... There is never detailed descriptions of the episode, and no way to skip to the middle of the episode to hear if I might enjoy it. You can only skip ahead 15 seconds, so if the episode is an hour, its frustratingly impossible, forcing me to waste my time. Say by chance I DO like a podcast episode that comes up. FINALLY! Can I subscribe to it? Nope. So, Im going back to using Apple Podcasts, its SO MUCH easier and less frustrating. On a positive note, if you like very generic subjects and simply want background noise while you drive, without having to keep choosing new content, I guess that would work, but that certainly isnt me.
If you have the ability to listen to several news briefs at the same time, this app is for you. I had high hopes for this app, but it continually plays ALL of my news stories simultaneously.
Wow! Didnt know a copycat app of Newsbeat exists with boring stories.. The selections are so boring so does the voices
Broadcast mix keeps going back to the default...keeps flipping back to TryPod...it just wont keep MY settings.
Sad the app has gone only email or Facebook log in only. Cant use it any other way. Bye!
i love this app, even though i dont use it on my commute to or from work. i listen to Otto Radio at home when im cooking or cleaning. as someone who constantly needs to listen to music, surprisingly this app is something that breaks up the monotony. i also live overseas and its a good way for me to keep up with news [which im not good at doing] and learning new things which i love. my only regret is not having a speaker for my iphone to use with it. thanks for this, guys
