I love this station, but this app has issues. It usually plays a video ad before the streaming starts, which is ok... except sometimes the ad fails to play and then the app gets stuck at that point and has to be forced to close from the Android task list. Fortunately, I can still use the TuneIn app to listen to WORD when the custom app just won't work properly, unlike some other stations (owned by iheart) who have pulled their streams from there. I'm also glad they're not on iheart because that platform is the worst I've tried.
This is my favorite news talk station.🎙
Works well most of the time. Can you possibly balance the audio from left to right? Stream is way louder in right channel than left.
Okay for what it does I guess for this ONE station. Otherwise, prefer Tunein because I can get other stations too. (although that app and/or servers have had connection problems of late). The 106.3 logo just fills the screen with this one, over magnified to pixellation. . Hate to admit it, BUT the best radio app is still Iheart. I detest Clear Channel BUT if I want to get the best of talk radio across the nation Iheart has it. Don't have to dl it because it's built in my smart tv. This just seems a step back for WORD 106.3 because it loses exposure to other listeners across the world. Maybe that doesn't equal demographics for local advertisers BUT it's nice to see stations like WGAC 580 out of Augusta up there with WLW Cincinnati. Maybe because WGTK is on Iheart, your ownership decided not to go there. In conclusion, App works.
This app is ok. The TuneIn app is better. It lets you pause, rewind, fwd shows and holds them on pause at the point you left off for several days. This app does not let you do any of that. The TuneIn app is the only one that you can go back and listen to Rush with, w/o a subscription. WORD allows you to stream all the other shows after the fact online except for Rush, the most important one. This app offers no capability to stream any of the shows after the fact even though they are on their website.
