The app needs constant internet connection to continue showing an article. When riding in metro for example, articles will disappear while you are reading them when in tunnels. Also, going 'back' after reading an article takes you back the main search page instead of continuing your selected filter search, filters are lost and have to start over each time. This app could use an overhaul. Other than that, the app appears fine.

Listen Live works just fine. Entering the contest, however, is always a problem, even with the app updated. Almost always says I entered the wrong code. Sometimes then completely closes the app, forcing me to log in again. If I decide to close and reopen the app myself to re-enter code, it logs me out, so I have to log in again.... only to see that the code had been accepted the first time.

I am using the wtop app but when I click on some weather and news stories it opens in a separate chrome window and not the app so I have to go back and forth?!? I have it set to open in app so I don't know why it keeps doing that. Do they put the stories on the web first and just point the app to them?
