A decent update. Still has many holes 3/5
By Lee Wheat
Glad to see the app updated with something other than compatibility tweaks. Worth getting.
Still a phone only app. iPad support is not present so the app runs as a phone app installed on a tablet. By this time, the app should recognize it's on a tablet and provide an enhanced UI that takes advantage of the bigger screen.
Additionally, the app does not handle landscape orientation well. Landscape requires the phone to be positioned so it sits on the volume buttons. It does not reorient the display if the phone is rotated to where the volume buttons are on top. Also, the home indicator on a iPhone X is on the right side of the screen. This means that Springboard thinks the phone is in portrait rather than landscape orientation.
When VPN is active, the app thinks there is no network connection and pops up a dialog box. After tapping ok to dismiss the box the app works fine, but it ought not think there's no network connection.
Some Features Are Gone? 2/5
I am a Rush24/7 Member for years. I learned to enjoy the apps, but I do want to ask where is Rush’s Stack of Stuff? His articles that he pulled from? I once was able to access audio from older shows even years back? Now, With some searching I found audio for about a month back. The video 3 hour show goes back 10 shows.
Am I missing a link or something? I just found a Rush 24/7 ad online and it mentions
The Stack and archives. I enjoy Rush but after about a year on this “new improved” app .... I miss the old app. Will you add these features back in for the future?
Loading loading loading.. 1/5
Love Rush.. hate the app. The app looks ok, but they spent zero time making it work. forget multi-tasking while listening to Rush. If you move to another app the Show stops and just sits there, loading. I had to reboot my phone 3 times before it would continue playing the show. And if you get a phone call while listening to Rush, forget it. It totally freaks out and will not play the show again.
App works sort of 3/5
The app seems to work to play the audio which is all I do with it. BUT if you want to try to replay an already played segment it automatically skips to the end of the time segment and then goes on to the next segment. You can’t re-listen to a segment without a huge game of trying to catch the playback cursor before it jumps to the next segment to slide it back to further previous in the playback segment. It can’t restart from the beginning.
Painful to use for show audio 1/5
I am addicted to this show. My primary use of the app is for the audio / podcasts. This audio routinely just stops to where I have to close the app and reopen it. If I get a phone call, audio stops and can’t be restarted following the call. If I play audio from another app, or if I change my Bluetooth connection, same thing. I also can’t replay an hour segment after it’s been played all the way through. Very frustrating. Sorry Rush. I hear you touting this app as the best. It’s just plain awful. No worries though. Listening to your show is worth the pain of using this app.
Audio unorganized 2/5
I work nights so I joined Rush 24/7 so I could listen at work. Recently the organization seems to be mixed up. The label will show as hr 3 but is actually playing hr 1 of the previous show. On other days the audio doesn’t appear to be uploaded. Please get this cleaned up!
Great show, terrible app 1/5
This app just doesn’t work the way it should. I download shows and they won’t play. I just go listen to the Hannity podcast instead. I’ll delete it soon, if it’s not fixed.
Rush, please fix this piece of junk. I would be ashamed to have my name associated with this app.
Can you just explain to us why downloaded episodes won’t play? Why does it constantly tell me I’m not connected to the internet when I clearly am?
Rock solid! 5/5
BRAVO!! I’ve been using the app on my iPhone since it first came out and it is fantastic! Everything I want and completely reliable. Never crashes and extremely easy to navigate. I listen while Rush is live—no problem. I stream the podcasts of the show or I download them and then listen—no problem. Video of Rush is great, both dittocam and morning updates. I can even mirror the video on Apple TV and see Rush on the big screen. Even the look of the app is great. Really like that true black. Not only looks great but saves on battery usage. Great job!
I am also at my wits end, on this app. I love Rush And I love the show, but all I want is to be able to listen to it without the video and the acoustic chewing gum music that plays for the adds. AUDIO AUDIO AUDIO, Why can’t you guys get it through your heads, IT IS WHAT WE THAT HAVE FOLLOWED RUSH FOR SO LONG WANT FROM THE APP. The old app was buggy, but at least it had a speed control and didn’t screw up the dates on the all important audio section. BTW While I’m on rant, I don’t appreciate paying for the 3rd hour commercials for sheets, security, or other sheeny garbage.
By Herod Lowery
Love Rush, been listening since 1989. Bought his ice tea, bought his books, 24/7 member for years. Rush is all class. Except for this app.
Hate to say it but this app is a terrible pile of crap. When it works (rarely), it’s good but it hardly ever works correctly, it’s wildly inconsistent.
Shows update sometimes a day or more after the broadcast, sometimes 10 minutes after each hour. I have to restart my iPhone 8 a few times each day to get the show to download.
Got plenty of signal but it’s the same problem on cable WiFi at my house.
Good content, rotten, terrible app. Just like the last one.
Love Rush! President Bush dies and I want to hear Rush’s stories on him but nope, can’t listen to anything past November 28.
Great show, great man, awful app.
I quit subscribing because of the app. 1/5
I couldn’t get the show to download! No fast forward on the random chance I got it to play! The app is way too complicated. I miss the old way when the shows would automatically download through the podcast app and my place was saved from where I left off. Bye.
Great App 5/5
This is a great app for a great show. The app makes it easier to listen to Rush anytime, anywhere. Combined with a membership, this is the perfect audio app.
The spinning ball 2/5
I use three apps to listen to these podcasts. Because, at some point, the one I’m using stops working. Two days ago, the Rush app started the spinner going, and it hasn’t stopped. It’s now useless. So, I’m using Stitcher. But, in a few days, it will fail to show all the episodes in each day until days later. Then, I’ll try Apple’s Podcasts for a while. The same thing will happen. Is it Rush or the apps? Don’t know. I only know it’s frustrating. The one that starts working all the time will get my five stars.
Update broke login 1/5
Suddenly the app constantly pops up to log in via iTunes when I have a 24/7 membership. No matter what I do, pop-up logins everywhere.
App removed. It just forced me to listen to God awful muzak during breaks anyhow.
Great App 5/5
Works great. Nice having Rush letter etc. at my fingertips.
Rush baby 5/5
Dear all app storians, greetings. This app is wonderful and amazing and rush Limbaugh has changed my life. I used to listen to crazy conspiracy theories, but lots of those were created by the democratic left in order to instill fear and hatred towards the republicans. Rush Limbaugh is almost always right on target with his analysis, and he has made me a smarter person. Rush 24/7 was easily the best few dollars that I spent, knowing that it has made me smarter, brighter, and more happier in life. He is able to sift through the torrent of news with the help of his amazing EIB network, and he actually cares about his listeners and those who use the app. Absolutely stupendous! Thank you Rush!
Can’t download podcast to iTunes?! 1/5
I love you Maha Rushie, but this update removed the ability to download the podcasts into iTunes podcast player? Sorry Rush, but what the hell? I loved listening to you through my iTunes podcast app. It is WAY more convenient than the app and frankly, the sole reason I’m a 24/7 subscriber. I’m probably going to drop my subscription if I can’t listen to the show through iTunes podcast app. #MAGA!
Love Rush, but 1/5
By Cilla Vanilla
This app is garbage. I’m a subscriber and have had to delete and reinstall this new app, as per troubleshooting email response, dozens of times on my iPhone and mini. Virtually impossible to listen to. Podcasts always a day late have to listen the next day, absolutely NOT why I pay to be a member. EVERY time I try to open it, it tells me we are 99.9 percent something went wrong. Honestly, not sure it’s worth the money any more. I specifically like listening to the podcast on my way home from work, commercial free. Well, can no longer do that. Pity, really.
Dangerous mistruths spread by Rush. 1/5
Listen to Rush if you desire to be less informed about the state of the world.
Consuming lies and fear does you no good.
Snap out of it.
Can not download or maybe break the code to find and use this enigma
Junk, disrespectful to Rush! 1/5
Absolutely junk. Using a brand new iPhone Xs and the app locks up routinely and phone must be restarted! App only refreshes properly when phone is restarted or a new day! App is down right aggravating!
Rush Limbaugh is the greatest! 5/5
Liberalism eventually is the death of any society.
I see a lot of liberals writing reviews calling the show stupid and just lying about this to put this in a terrible light. This a great app and a great show that tells the truth the liberal socialist democrats don’t want to hear.
Love Rush, hate the app 2/5
Incredibly unreliable app if you listen to podcasts of Rush. Unfortunately Limbaugh seems to have made downloading his podcast anywhere else impossible. The problem with that is that this app very often doesn’t play the podcasts.
Love everything Rush! 5/5
Love this app- Love Rush - MEGA DITTOS !!!
Quick question... can you guys do an update? Every time I open the app it’s telling me I’m not connected to WiFi when I am. Also, when I play the podcast I’m having issues replaying once I have already listened. Like if I’m done hour 2, and want to go back to hour 1... it won’t let me do that.
Put simply- it doesn’t work well. 1/5
I’ve been an iOS user since iOS became a thing, and a Rush 24/7 subscriber since day 1. The old app needed some work, but I can’t even get this one off the ground. My sole purpose for using this app is to listen to shows I’ve missed while traveling. Now I continually get a “Hey dittohead, you’re not connected to the internet” message when I try to listen. Well, the fact is that I AM using cellular data and have cellular data enabled in both my cellular settings as well as the Rush app itself.
Additionally, I don’t care for the fact that the user must scroll significantly in order to access what I believe to be a primary benefit of this app: to access audio.
This needs major work. Looks are nothing if there’s no productivity to go with it. What’s Rush said for years? “Substance over symbolism”. That philosophy would go far here!
Thank you to the Developer for getting the streaming issue worked out. Can’t figure out for the life of me why there are THREE different a locations to enable streaming but that works at this point.
But, that brings up another issue. When moving from WiFi to streaming data, the broadcast keeps restarting on me. Additionally, almost every time I get into the truck and start it, whereas before it would usually pick up where I left off, now most of the time it begins the program again at the beginning. Buffering wasn’t great before, but it seems much worse now.
I’ll give them a couple of weeks to get an update to fix some of this, but in its current state, my 24/7 subscription is worthless to me, I’m sad to say.
I’m still really disappointed in this app. Rush keeps touting how great it is on his program, and promises updates to make it even better, but I’m just not seeing it. Ronjon12 nailed all the primary issues. No rewind/ff option, audio is harder to access, no description without selecting a program to listen to...
Yes, the app has a nice look. Who cares?! I want something intuitive to use.
First of all, let me applaud some recent steps forward, such as the 15 second FF/RW that makes it much easier to navigate through the stupid commercials for security systems and sheets and the like. I do appreciate the controls.
Now, I honestly don’t know if it is the app or the release of iOS 12, but the app has turned even more frustrating as of late. Why in the WORLD can someone not create a means of remembering where a person stopped listening??? Believe it or not, many 24/7 subscribers ARE subscribers for the very reason that we can’t sit down and listen to the program for 3 straight hours. As a result, maintaining our location in the program is essential. Now it seems that even a short break away from the program and when I return to the app, it reloads and totally ‘forgets’ where I was. As a result, I have to take a ridiculous amount of time trying to ascertain the last point of audio.
Rush, you continually promote yourself as an Apple aficionado. PLEASE get more involved in this app and make it more user friendly. It’s still terribly frustrating to have to wade through so much visual garbage just to find the list of episodes. Last week you had no trouble putting a caller on your show touting how great the app is. It would be WONDERFUL if you could make sure the app is everything you say it is, as truth be told, right now it isn’t even close.
Would be 5 stars if it had proper scrubbing 4/5
I love the app in so many ways, but I do have one desire to fix: scrubbing though audio.
The app needs to have a proper scrubbing feature such as Apple's music player or other well known apps such as YouTube. When I place my finger on the current playing progress bar and try to move ahead or back, the current time duration doesn't change so I have no idea where I moved it to. And to make matters worse, after doing this, sometimes it will freeze and and never continue playing until I close the current audio and restart it.
Also, the time played on the lock screen will stop moving while the audio is playing.
Fix these issues and I will be happy to change to 5 stars!
Good content - app not consistent 2/5
The daily show updates are spotty requiring a delete and reinstall of the app. Back to the drawing board.
Love it 5/5
The updated app has been around for about a year now, give or take. What I love is that I can download previous episodes to listen on my own time. I’m usually working when Rush is live on the air, so this app helps me keep up!
Please please please fix this app!!! 1/5
This app has been on the same day for almost a week now. This has happened in the past and it took a couple months for it to be fixed. Tried everything on my end to no avail. Please fix.
Awful music on webcam. 2/5
I can’t even watch anymore because I’m so annoyed that the commercial break music is soooooo bad. I may have an epileptic attack from those drumbeat and I don’t even have epilepsy. Love you Rush and love the new app but please spend a few cents more to improve the commercial break music for the webcam. Btw, The audio commercial break music is tolerable, but should be changed up a little. For those of us who pay and listen for three hours daily, I think we should get a pleasant experience. But this is the highest maintenance app I’ve ever paid for.
Pay to play 1/5
Why can you not stream for free? $6.99 per month. Please.
Love the new app!! 5/5
At least communist apple hasn’t deleted this app yet
By Jason in Nola
Like I’m going to pay to listen to a podcast lol immediately deleted
It’s ok👌 4/5
So I have changed my opinion on the app I admit the app has gotten way better after using it after a week and way better overall there are good things to this app like hour 1 and 2 and sometimes 3 go like fast as a lightning when your downloading them with a ok internet connection overall it has gotten better overall.
Love the Content /Mediocre Delivery 5/5
Typically, I PAUSE Rush during the half hour of a LIVE conservative show, that begins at 5:30EST.
Unfortunately, the Rush app is currently unable to resume play from PAUSE, upon my return.
Please augment the power of the PAUSE feature & thereby end this inconvenient dilemma of my attempting to resume my Rush playback from my last position.
Excellent app 5/5
By Texan Forever
I have used this app ever since it was released and it is great.
Great Content. Terrible App. 1/5
Delivery and playback of the radio broadcast is constantly glitchy. Plays a portion of audio then skips to the next hour broadcast on multiple occasions. Downloads then freezes and requires additional download. The UI itself is convoluted and way more complex than it needs to be. Too many clicks to get to the audio desired. I just want to download and listen to the show if I miss it live. That should be the first priority of this app and it doesn’t seem to be. I expected more excellence from EIB and Rush.
Improve Features Needed 3/5
The show content is great, but the app needs help. First the email interface is terrible. It requires inputting a lot of personal data and then requires typing text into a very restrictive text box. When the show is live you can only join it live not at the beginning of the program. The fast forward and reverse controls don’t allow easily skipping past breaks or jumping to 1st, 2nd or 3rd hour. Not compatible with Chevy CarPlay.
No streaming available 3/5
I like listening to Rush on the radio whenever I can.
When I heard a pitch for the app claiming that live audio streaming is available even for non-members, I downloaded it.
Rush always describes himself as “right 99.98% of the time.” I guess this is that .02%.
So bad...why does EIB provide this junk? 1/5
The menu is not very intuitive. One must scroll often just to find the live show and the hour. No summary is irritating! But I repeatedly get “an error has occurred” when attempting to login to live show.
Is the some restriction to number of access points? The only way I have received the show is through live radio streaming from 4 states over!
How could EIB provide this junk. I downloaded to my iPhone two days ago and have had nothing but junk and trouble since! Do not download this! Avoid the app and avoid the stress. I honestly do not think Rush even knows the crap his app developer has foisted on the audience!
Avoid this app, if you have an iPhone!
DS, a listener for years, both in USA, and internationally.
Like it, but lots of connection problems 3/5
Love the Rush Limbaugh show and listen to it every day. The one complaint is that you still have to download the podcast every day. And even if you have the podcast downloaded you have to open the app and hope for a good connection with the Internet. That seems to be where some of the problems arise.
Deleted app after 3 minutes 1/5
Nothing free on it at all butt text. And butt is nott a typo.
Downloads expire and disappear after 24 hrs ... 3/5
I got behind and downloaded several days worth of shows. Downloads went fine, but the next day they were gone. Happened the other day with just one day of the show.
Love show, hate app 1/5
This might be the worst app I have ever used for streaming and that is saying something. Rush, please fire the developer and hire someone that understands how regular people listen to a radio program.
Very Poor 1/5
Too cluttered, inconsistent, difficult to use. Should be designed with logical, sequential selections.
Love Rush Show 1/5
Terrible App After I Setting Up An Account For Rush 24/7 I Can Not Access The Features Too....Bad But I Still Listen To Rush On The AM Faithfully John Guadian
"Rush Limbaugh" search in App Store, can't find it 5/5
By Commentary Geek
Rush promoted this today 01-11-2018 but when you search for "Rush Limbaugh" it is no where to be found. It only shows up if you link directly from the Official Rush Limbaugh website.
Do we dare say conspiracy or suppression? Weird since Rush is likely the biggest Public Figure promoter of Apple Products in the USA.
Search for Rush Limbaugh in Apple APP store still does not find this app. You still have to link to it directly from RushLimbaugh.com.
Finally has all I'm looking for 5/5
It's finally got the podcast interface right, so I don't have to leave the app for podcasts.
One minor nit pick. When speeding up the playback speed of podcasts to, for instance, 1.5x, when the episode changes, the speed changes back to 1.0x even thought the display shows the correct desired speed 1.5x. very livable bug.
After using it for a while, there are a couple more severe bugs:
If you try to download a podcast while listening to one crashes the app.
There is no way to refresh new podcasts. The app had to be killed to update the list.
