Lots of audio issues! If you already have it open and are listening and want to listen to the LATEST live news, you have to close the app and relaunch it. Often even doing that won't work. What results is whatever you had been listening to, continues to play OVER the live audio. So then you have to uninstall the app and reinstall it. But again, if you make the mistake of wanting to switch from the old live news to the latest, it'll all happen all over again. I gave up! Now I just read stories!

When I receive a call and it pauses automatically, and then when it starts playing after the call, it initially starts where it stopped but after some time, perhaps ten seconds or so, it annoyingly jumps to live, skipping a length. And it does not allow the user to rewind to listen to what has been skipped.

It works well, but you cannot start and stop the player in 'sleep mode,' with a headphone button, or the top menu on a phone, without having notifications allowed (which I don't want). You also have to close and reopen the app. to reload new content. The ads are tolerable and the rest of the app. works okay. It is definitely not as good as the old BBC iPlayer and you cannot save podcasts for later playing like the old app. So, while this app. is good for streaming, I still use spotify.
