Love the station. Used to love the app. But all it's done today for the last 15min on my Galaxy S6 & my old S5 (checked so can't blame phone!) is say buffering!!!! Can vote tunes up & down. Check out website, listen to all the samples before voting (they buffer & load fine). I just can't listen live! Still bl***y buffering & I'm on fibre! Sort it out please! If you still love the station. Do as I've just done. Just go to the Jack 2 website & listen that way. Forget this app!
We're forced to listen to Jack 2 at work and all they play is awful chart music. However they bill themselves as "the only UK station that let's YOU pick the music". This of course is a lie, the app only lets you choose tracks that are currently in the charts ie pop music that gets excessively and inevitably late anyway on any other station. There are a few token tracks from the 90s and 00s but mostly pop and rnb. The only rock songs could be counted on less than 2 hands which includes Green Day, Good Charlotte and Blink 182. Not to mention voting for songs lacks any transparency, you don't know how many votes are being cast or whether the DJ is fiddling about with the songs. And it's silly that this app will stream what's currently playing and there's no way of turning it off as you could already be listening to it on a radio.
It's good, but you can only vote songs to no 3 in playlist, then seconds later it shoots down the list, so impossible to get song to play but still good
ADVERTISING OVERLOAD. Why ad advertising to the app when your station plays ads too. Time to uninstall the jack 2 advertising app.
I love jack2!!!!!
Really nice app, but v slow! I love the station and using the app, but there are lots of glitches and it's very slow on my phone, especially to update what's at the top! This app would be even better with a new design and faster use...
