I love and support WAMC but this app is very problematic. The big issue is that it simply stops playing at seemingly random moments. It will restart but you need to manually restart it and listen to the opening message. By that time you have lost the thread of what you were listening to. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update.
Discovered this app when the older version, WAMC Mobile, stopped playing live streams. This one works fine, however, has a few quirks. First, it is super annoying to listen to the same ad at the beginning of live stream. I understand that WAMC is a non-profit radio and needs all the support from sponsors it can get, however, it could be frustrating to listen to the same message when switching from HD1 to HD2, especially as often as I am. Perhaps it could play once per day. Second, the auto-play function when choosing a Program should be an option in settings. Sometimes, you just want to browse through the wonderful programs you've missed and then select the one you want to listen. Third, it would be great to display the name of the program during the live stream. Thanks.
LOVE the radio station. Hate the app. When it works, it's great, but it cuts out frequently, often making me miss the rest of an engrossing news report while i turn the app off & back on & then listen to the sponsorship message. So frustrating!!
This app stops randomly. It looks like it isn't just me. I reinstalled so should have the most current version. Why hasn't this been addressed? I am a loyal fan and member of WAMC.
I'm a big fan of the station and happy to have this app to stay connected, but why does it need so many permissions just to stream audio? The developers claim it needs fewer permissions, but this update still requires contacts, camera, microphone, etc etc. Why do you need any of this to stream radio?
App stops working in 10 minutes. Useless. A reviewer mentioned that in March 2017. Not fixed. Needs upgrade badly. Samsung galaxy S6 4G.
