Mine hasn't actually crashed. But it does stop (most of the time) after each track. It's a shame that Naxos doesn't care about fixing this fault. :EDIT: I have discovered that the fault can be worked around by disabling the lock screen (with the Screen Alive app). So I have upgraded my rating to two stars.

The library of music available on this app is immense and the playlist system is excellent for helping me to keep track of my favorite pieces. The UI is beautiful and (mostly) easy to navigate. Sure, we'd all like to see better support for things like typo correction, but honestly that is not important in light of some more serious issues. Namely, the app is quite unstable. Most recently, the problem is that the app will not proceed to the next track in an album if my phone is asleep. If I don't remember to wake up my phone, the app will freeze and I will need to play a different track entirely in order to use it again. Other issues include the fact that the music doesn't automatically pause when I disconnect my headphones, which can lead to a brief moment of blaring music in a public space if I forget to hit the pause button myself before putting my headphones away. Infrequently, but often enough to be really annoying, the pause button spontaneously "unpauses" itself, leading to music blaring at an inopportune moment. There's a lot of potential with this app, but Naxos really needs to hire better software developers in order to remove the bugs that keep it from getting there.

Ugh, just like the website this app is poorly put together and non intuitive to use. Even worse, the app crashes a lot and will continue playing music when crashed, requiring a hard reboot to even turn off the sound. It's a shame because Naxos is a really good service with a lot of quality recordings. Can't recommend unless you're really desperate.
