While I am sure this is a wonderful adventure (they all are) I was disappointed to find out that they do not come in MP3 format to put on a portable player. I was wanting to download a bunch of these adventures to listen to while I run. I don't want them on my phone as they would take up too much space and run down the battery (I run for several hours while marathon training). My MP3 player does not download apps and these require the special app to play. Very disappointed...I love AIO.....I'm sure it would be 5 stars if I could use it.
Love the actors especially woton funny and penny love the stories and the messages
I have listened to Odyssey's for several years and still love them! It's wonderful to have access to these stories that are entertaining but also teach about God and current issues. I am also a member of the AIO club and love that as well! My niece and nephew get to enjoy Odyssey with me now too. Its a blessing to have received a free episode on top of that!
I've been listening to AIO for years and look forward to listening to it for many years to come!! Great stories that illustrate Biblical concepts. Enjoyed this free episode!!
I have over 12 adventures and odessyses and they have never gotten old. I love how they always are themed
on the bible
I loved adventures in odyssey as a kid and would love my children to have the same experience. The only downside is that I can't just download this to my phone, to then be able to play in the car. I can't get apps on my phone, so the purchase for me is almost useless. I honestly foresee forgetting about it entirely. I understand not wanting the merchandise to get ripped off, but I wish it were possible to do a simple download
My children really enjoyed the stories, and so did I.
Just as with every other episode of Adventures in Odyssey that I have listened to, I am sure that this story is worth at least 4 stars. What I don't like is that I cannot simply download the MP3 file to my PC and listen to it as I would with any other MP3 download (like from Amazon). No, for some reason, Focus on the Family requires its customers to create a separate account with FlickRocket and then download and install a "Flux Player" before gaining access to the MP3. To me, this unnecessary software install detracts from the overall appeal of purchasing any episode of Adventures in Odyssey. I don't like clutter on my PC. When these MP3s are made available without requiring customers to jump through these extra hoops, I will happily return to purchase them to put on my kids' MP3 players.

Please be assured that we consider input like yours important, and we’re pleased to supply some perspective that we hope you’ll find helpful.
We see the Flux Player as a versatile tool for organizing and enjoying our downloadable resources. Of course, we realize that some might find this stand-alone platform somewhat restrictive, as users must now access our content within the framework of the Flux software. However, despite this additional requirement, this player serves a two-fold purpose of distributing digital products through our online store and protecting the proprietary materials we’ve invested time and resources to produce.
