Love the station, the app not so much. The app is clunky. For example, you go to live streaming which brings up the play screen and you start to play the stream. Then you get out from the app while the music keeps playing, as it should. But when you go back to the app it brings you back to the home screen rather than the live streaming page and even this is quite slow. It also doesn't seem to correctly refresh the media notification in Android 13 to display what is being played.

I love listening to WFMT, especially in the mornings and before bed. However, the app is so buggy and crashes very often. The stream cuts off randomly every 5-10 minutes, or so, and I need to restart the app. This is not how I want to be enjoying music. Please fix these bugs! Thanks.

I enjoy most of the programming very much. However, the stream uses a very low quality codec vs the terrestrial (FM) broadcast. My phone has a radio app so I can directly compare them, and did so one evening listening to a SF Symphony performance of a Mahler Symphony while commuting on a train that alternates between elevated and subway. FM doesn't work in the subway, so I had to switch to the app below ground. It's a night and day comparison. I would prefer the option to choose my data rate.
