The Moth is dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. This app is the best way to listen to hundreds of stories from The Moth’s live events, its top-rated podcast, and its award-winning public radio show, “The Moth Radio Hour,” distributed by PRX and produced by Atlantic Public Media.

The app’s minimalist design focuses on the listening experience:
* Favorite stories you want to remember
* Share stories you want others to hear
* Download any story for offline listening

Moth stories span the great range of human experience. Storytellers come from all walks of life to stand in front of a live audience and tell their funny, sad, and moving stories without notes.

Pros and cons of The Moth app for iPhone and iPad

The Moth app good for

A great app with a wide variety of captivating stories offered each week. It is addicting.
I love The Moth. This is the buggiest app on my iPhone though. Constant crashes, search only sometimes works. Just barely made worth it by the amazing content.
Cant say enough about the stories and the storytellers, so good! The app crashes frequently but not enough to stope from listening
Wish it had a snooze setting! Love listening to the stories before bed!
If you like the podcast then youll love the App. With the App you get access to hours upon hours of Moth stories.
Love love love The Moth. App is a bit sluggish at times and sometimes crashes. Worth every moment.

Some bad moments

The Moth radio app freezes up completely and you can do nothing. This is the most frustrating experience I have ever had! I do love the stories, so I would love to have somebody fix the app!
For this apps quality, it should be free. Unfortunately it is very buggy. Extremely buggy: many episodes wont even play over LTE.
Virtually useless, the app will sometimes shut down randomly but more commonly it pauses itself and when I try to hit play to resume nothing happens. I could understand if I had bad service or something but this will happen at home over wifi as well. Dont waste you 99cents on this app and find some other way to listen to The Moth. This review is for the app itself not The Moth. If other people would rate this app for what it is the ratings would be so much lower
I love The Moth ...... Hate the app. I was able to play 1 downloaded podcast now it is perma frozen. Horrible. Please fix!
I adore The Moth but this app is the worst I have on my phone. It crashes nearly every time I use it, its pretty much always sluggish, it doesnt open automatically to the most recent episode you were listening to so you have to remember and do a lot of scrolling if its not a recent one and it often doesnt update episodes properly. Case in point - I just opened it up and the most recent episode showing is more than two weeks old. I know there should be more recent ones there because Ive listened to some of them. But it wont show them, even if I pull down on the screen to update. Please fix it. Im seriously considering deleting it because of all the frustrations. Its only my love for The Moth that has made me keep it this long.
I love this app I listen to it on the way to work its made me laugh made me cry. The stories are told by real people and Ive even learned a few life lessons while listening!! If you havent downloaded it do it now!!!!!
