I don't know why the CBC brass is pushing radio promo's so hard on this broken mess. It worked only once after install, and not once since. Error telling me I can't use it outside of Canada (I'm in Canada) and no options to reset it or change location. And as others have said, no favourites, or profile settings. Come on guys, you have this huge music archive that we paid for..let us use it!!
Such promise but such a terrible app. I barely get 20min of play time before it disconnects on my Samsung S7. No favorites menu so you have to dig to find stations, and major design inconsistencies from apple to android. Add favorites on android or chromecast cast on apple and fix the instability. Amazing its been like this for years...time for a dev team shakeup.
Good music selection, although I wish we had an option to shut it off. It'll randomly start playing and use data when not wanted. Also, an option to choose "likes" Or "dislikes" would be great to tailor certain stations to the listener. Otherwise, I use it frequently.
I live overseas and thought the app might nice to hear some new Canadian music. Instead, I had the chance to see how crappy an app can be. Limited options in app but that isn't so horrible. Used it once; chose a stream, every subsequent time went back to that stream. No more options. Very simple app so not so hard to find options, but no way to reset. Might be only an overseas problem, but come on, how hard can it be to make an even slightly world class app. So provincial! lol
It's nearly impossible to find what you're looking for without poking around in the clunky UI for ages. There's no search and mainstream channels like Radio 3 are buried in random places. It also doesn't close properly and constantly revives notification play-pause controls long afer you've manually killed the app. This app (along with Radio 3) are a shadow of their former selves.
It works a bit better each version. Still some glitches, but nothing really serious. Album art is often incorrect, and other meta data is often wrong, but that is a backend problem. The music plays well. I always want to l listen to a particular channel which is buried deep in the selections so having favorites or starting in the channel you last listened to would be good. Remembering your timezone would be good too.
