I have an Xs Max still, and it has been so slow the past few days. All my vid apps keep buffering when they never did before

i’m just thankful it doesn’t take 20 minutes to load the podcast app and apple music. didn’t even notice these bugs because i was able to search and browse quickly again.

i tried going to spotify and hated the layout. couldn’t switch even though i wanted to!

The part where it doesn't take 900 years to load sounds... promising?

spotify's UI doens't bother me all that much, except I wish there was a way to click a button and find all the podcasts i follow. as long as apple does that, i'm happy to continue bouncing back and forth between all the podcast apps i use (for some reason, not all of them are in one place, even when done by the same person?)

I used PA for a long time but it got unbearably heavy for my 6yo phone, so I started using AntennaPod and I'm loving how clean, light and succint it is.
