Himalaya: Stories and Courses app reviews

  • This is a very bad app. 1/5

    By Lets0007
    I hope the old version of XMLY app is available in US. The international version is totally garbage. After so many years the international version is still no good as I predicted.
  • 垃圾VIP 1/5

    By i睿
  • Wrongfully Charged with Services I did NOT Subscribe to 1/5

    By _.SeventhNote
    This has been a terrible experience and deserves no stars. I am an avid reader who wants to enjoy this app but my credit card was wrongfully charged $49.99 with NO subscriptions. Because this app has NO direct customer line for any adequate support, I emailed the receipt along and explained everything nicely. The way they didn’t even care to look into it proved that the business model is built on scamming money. PLEASE BE CAREFUL FOR NOT DISCLOSING your credit card number to this app if they ask you to.

    By Acolor
    Not all the content in the original Chinese version app is synced to this international version app. I wrote an email to support but received no response. Existing content is good and I enjoy listening to Himalaya everyday. Just hope you can update and add new books more frequently.

  • Sold Out 1/5

    By F.J. Young
    Himalaya used to be the best podcast platform by far, but it seems they’ve sold out to some Chinese company and are now nothing more than a cheap scam. Podcasts are no longer updated and the app tries to push a premium subscription to their “curated shows”, which is all poorly disguised ultra communist propaganda. Truly a shame what’s happened to this company.

    They will trick you with various ‘prescribe, try x days and then pay’ deals, but you women actually get the trial, the only true part is the payment, you will get charged, but no benefits as stated.
  • Hard to filter out VIP content 3/5

    By Jean thx
    The original app has a small icon that tell people this is VIP content, i found this version is very hard to filter out the content that is FREE without having the icon, which i have to open each profile to see if’s FREE. Please improve!!!
  • Stopped Working 1/5

    By Momtanis615
    I have all my playlists & podcasts set and it completely stopped updating. No new podcasts.
  • Suddenly a completely different app 1/5

    By -.- seriously
    If you used this app for podcast as tons of people had previously done, just delete it now. Apparently they no longer have podcasts available, they will no longer be updating any podcast episodes and won’t be supporting podcasts any longer. They will be focusing completely on audio books and stories/courses as their sudden, new name suggests. Will be deleting the app after years of using it as my exclusive podcast listening platform. Sad to see it go as the UI was great and the playlists option was wonderful, but I won’t be using it for anything now and it would just take up space, so it’ll be deleted.
  • 好 5/5

    By 里昂88
  • Can’t find episodes 1/5

    By Honestly Abe
    This was a great app, but the developers got greedy. They removed functionality without any warning. It stopped remembering where you closed it so it could always advertise paid content. That was bad. But now, it won’t show or let you download new episodes of any podcast (including free ones) unless you pay! Shame on them. The number of bugs is also going up, so expect their ratings to tank. I’m never using this app again!
  • No longer loads new episodes 1/5

    By MEJA_
    The app used to be great but now it no longer loads new podcast episodes.
  • Looks like abandoned ware 1/5

    By myqwell
    Podcasts are not updated. Either the app is rescoped to paid subscription-based stories, or it’s forsaken.
  • Not updating. 2/5

    App has not updated new podcasts for well over a week.
  • Podcasts not updating 1/5

    Podcasts not being updated for over a week. Why??
  • Good but buggy app 3/5

    By nw1957
    Programs suddenly stop updating for several days at at time even if you refresh. Good selection of available content but cannot access description of episodes without playing them. No help or contact links in the app.

  • Membership still valid but the App shows it has expired 1/5

    By Leyna11
    I subscribed to Himalaya on 1/1/2022 with a yearly membership plan. After a couple of months being busy, I tried to listen to it again. however my app shows my membership has expired. When I contacted customer support, there was little help and communication stopped after one reply email. The support person said my account was still active, but in my account it actually shows that my vip status has expired. There was no useful place for me to re-enter all my info again, I’m very dissatisfied!!!
  • 内容比国内版少太多,不值得 1/5

    By FrancisJin
  • Functional but Painfully Liberal 3/5

    By Not of the Herd
    I like this app and they have a good selection of the podcast that I enjoy. However it is beyond annoying that they constantly and expressly are pumping liberal podcasts for me. Trying to get me to listen to Michelle Obama, Bill Gates, Anderson Cooper, NPR, and on and on and on. No end to this. It’s truly ridiculous.
  • 不好用 1/5

  • 試用了三天後無法後台播放自動退出,根本沒法聽了 1/5

    By 明&教主
  • Can’t listen to any material even after the subscription 1/5

    By lindalindalinda090909
    TLDR: subscribed but didn’t get ANY service I paid for the subscription and get a subscription confirmation from Apple. However i still can’t access the material. The app still keeps asking me to subscribe. What should I subscribe if I already did so ??!! Never happened to any the apps and if I can’t get access to your material, what is the point of the subscription? Super disappointed. 中文太长不看版:订阅了但是还是啥都听不了,app还是一直让我再订阅。 然后我点了再订阅又说我已经订阅了不能再订阅。 死循环无解。 要是这个功能都搞不好还有啥功能能搞好。
  • Ridiculous bug makes app unusable after a while 3/5

    By BlackBatOnTheInside
    Overall the app is pretty good. The UI is easy to navigate and looks nice, the library is great, and the annual price is excellent. However, there is one enormous, horrendous, ridiculous bug that makes the app difficult to use and impossible to recommend to less tech savvy folks -- which is itself a terrible shame, because it's exactly older less techy people who tend to most enjoy audio books. The bug is, the large, red Continue Listening button on each book page does not in fact allow you to continue to listen. I've tested this dozens of times with different situations and types of content and it always pops me to some earlier episode. Since each book is chopped into ten minute segments, that means each book has over a hundred episodes. And to make life even more aggravating, the app only loads about twenty episode titles at once. So, if I'm halfway through a book and I accidentally hit that (highly visible and misleading) button, that means an extremely frustrating scroll+wait for load+scroll+wait for load+scroll+wait for load ad nauseam until I get to my current episode. I'm currently listening to a show that has over 1000 episodes. If I hit this bug past 300 eps or so, I guess I'll just have to give up listening. Oh right, there is a second bug that exacerbates this problem: About once every two weeks, my Recently Played list just disappears. Absolutely no idea why. The Continue Listening button on the Recently Played books does in fact work as you'd expect, which is a life saver. But since these entries disappear every now and then, this lifeline is temporary. Again, I have no idea what I'll do when I get well into that 1000+ chapter book. P.S. I listen to several books at once and also have some for reference, so it's easy to forget all of what I'm listening to. This bug necessitates a manual list of books I'm currently listening to in a different place so I can get them back. Honestly, this bug is so obvious and absurd. The newest update didn't fix it. Has no one reported it? I can't imagine that this bug has survived for as long as the app has been around. Was it recently introduced? The correctly operating Continue Listening function clearly already exists. Is it somehow difficult to link it to the correct button? Please, please, please fix this problem with all haste! My month of free membership is ending and I'd love to hear some news to help me decide whether or not to subscribe. Thank you!
