There are two :jwreaders". When the brother's from Syntax pulled there's from the Google play store at the Branch's request, the people who put out "JWPlayer" started marketing their own, paid version. It is not near as good as the original jwreader which is still available through the Syntax website here:




JWreader will also do some audio, like the Bible reading.


As for JW Player" mine and everyone else's that I know has stopped working. Mine tells me I need to update it and when I try to, they try to sell me their version of jwreader, even though I paid for jwplayer. 


I think it's because the jw.org site changes their podcast feed links every now and then, jwplayer has trouble keeping up.


They may also have run into an issue with the name "JW Player" since there was already an Android app with that name.


EDIT: Yes, that seems to be the issue: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pm.jwplayer&hl=en
