I like public radio especially on the weekends, but this app is crappy. Although, once the audio buffers, the app works adequately. The app can NOT be run in the background while buffering & it can take 3min before the audio begins. I use TALK STREAM LIVE daily. TSL buffers within 30-45sec & in the background, so I know better performance is possible. The app gets "0" stars; NPR can claim the one star that the PLAY store requires when leaving a review. (Last thought: the developers can take solace in knowing their app is slightly better than nothing.)
Uninstalled It worked great for months and now will not play while on wifi at the office and at home. I'm a faithful listener but the app that was my mainstay no longer works. I've txt'd WITF about the issue and never heard back. As soon as it's working I will be very happy to download and start using their app again.
If it just never stopped... This would be just what I was looking for if you could just press play and it would keep on going. Rhapsody never stops, spotify keeps looking for a connection. I know that this can be written into and app. Also once it gets going it needs to stop when stop is pressed not keep on playing everything buffered.
Runs in the background after you stop the app. Very annoying. I know how to start up the app. I don't need a stupid task running all the time that tells me to "Just click here" to start it up again.
Frustrated The audio takes forever to stop buffering and play, if it plays at all! I rely on WITF as a source of information but this app needs to work! Please fix it.
Needs work Audio randomly stops without cause. The NPR app does the same thing, so there may be a correlation. Otherwise, a decent app.
