Never worked.
Looks great. Too bad there were too many gremlins preventing it to work ever.

Horrible!!!!!!
Their lack of a detailed directory and descriptions of content is disrespectful of your time and makes this app virtually unusable. Apparently they think listeners have nothing going on in their life... So they make you look at every single show... One by one. Aaaak! Additionally the topics are just random ... Hit comedy and you'll also get news shows... And vice versa. No archives for older shows so you listen to the current news or none at all. No way to create lists of things you'd like to listen to later. If they had a decent directory... it would be a great app.

Annoying
Annoying how they pretty much force u to write a review or else they force u to click through extra screen every time u use the app

Great service, but constantly nags to rate.
Four stars for service (5 stars if more content in future). One star for constant 'rate us' messages (guys, c'mon). 2.5 then rounded up.

like it but it needs to improve self leaning algorithm
lacking like/dislike functionality also compared to pandora etc, doesn't look like it really learns well from users listening pattern, for example I always skimp sports news but it still continues showing up on the playlist great idea, execution needs improvement

Could be better
I live listening to podcasts but Swell seems to only promote the heavily commercialized radio podcasts. The whole idea of listening to podcasts is to get away from those standard radio shows. You won't find any independent podcasts. If you "search" for a subject, you'll only get podcasts from those major radio outlets. Even if you search for a independent podcast by name, you won't find it. For example: I searched for "The Rich Roll Podcast" and it doesn't find it. You'll find Downcast and Stitcher are better apps for your podcast subscriptions. Both allow you to search for non-commercial podcasts much better.

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.
