Fix the Glitch
Initially, this app was the best thing ever. It's a brilliant idea and I was a daily user. Now, however, I can't listen to a single podcast without the app pausing playback and giving me a spinning ball and a constant "connecting…" banner. Needless to say, this happens regardless of my carrier signal. So sadly, Swell has become something I can no longer use reliably.

Great app
Didn't know what to expect but every story is more interesting than the last. Try it out.

Good
The pre-buffering does not always allow itself enough time, so it can cut out on a slower connection. Other than this, the app is great.

Pandora of News and Talk Radio
This is a very intuitive and easy to use app to stream news and Podcasts. It is seamless and when one stream ends it automatically starts the next one. It intelligently chooses which Podcasts and news to provide based on a variety of factors. Alternatively you can search news and Podcasts and bookmark the channels you like. The app could be a little better with a little more organization of your bookmarked and thumbs upped podcasts and channels. I would definitely have to recommend this app to anyone who is a serial podcaster or listens to talk radio and news. The interface is easy an the app looks great.

great concept
Unfortunately, the app delivers a lot of very good podcasts with great content, but not relevant to what I like. Self-help, health, and social engineering podcasts that I subscribe to aren't being played, but other content is. App is great if you don't know what you're in the mood to hear, but to get tailored suggestions I suppose takes some time. Also couldn't figure out high or low-speed (1.5x, 2x, etc.) playback, which I've become accustomed to using on the apple podcast app. Great app, just doesn't work for me like I thought it would, but if it helps get all these great podcasts that exist out to more ears, then that's a good thing.
