Does almost what it should When I listen it's reliable and works well. I like the updates and the headlines. The only thing missing is the ability to sign into my insiders club account, input bonus codes, enter contests, just like the website. As it is now, I can't even do that from a browser because the site is optimized for computer, not tablet or phone. Itd be a nice feature to have.
Designed for puny screen?? Update for August 2016. The app is just as bad as 2 years ago. Come on, don't admit that that's the best you can do. This app looks like it was designed for prehistoric smartphone when screen size was only 4 inches or smaller. Why is the font so huge and only one quarter of the screen is useful is beyond me.
680news Until recently got email notification on phone that would let me go to full site and insider's report. Now no email and can't get to insider's report. Know it's optimized for my tablet but sometimes want it on phone too.
Very ad heavy. Full page ad at application launch, extra banner ad when listening to traffic report, full screen video ad (no skip feature) when launching live radio.
Good until the "Test" messages Good for important messages, but in the last day, I've received over ten TEST Messages or repeated news notices. Annoying.
Annoying audio issue Live news audio keeps cutting out saying "no internet connection" even with full bars on WiFi. Please fix this issue as its the main reason to use the app.
Minor bug fixes.
