I love the content on KERA but I thoroughly despise this app. It can't transition between networks like all other apps do. If I leave my home while on the wifi, it comes to a dead stop and can't continue playing on 5g, and vice versa. I have to restart it and sit through about 2 minutes of reconnecting before I get back to the story i was listening to, usually at the end. It is very aggravating and has been like this from the start of this app many years ago.

The app goes in and out more often than not right in the middle of an interview or story that I'm very interested in. It will either just last for 2 seconds so you'll miss the sentencing in a statement or it'll just drop totally for 2 3 4 minutes come back on sometimes never comes back on. Other than that love the station love the stories and love everything the app needs some work. Thank you.

I absolutely LOVE KERA radio & their programming which is why I am giving the app an extra star (and why I donate to the station). But as far as the app goes.... It has been stopping audio out of nowhere (sometimes it comes back on it's own but most of the time I have to go back into the app & press play several times) and it is extremely infuriating. All I want is to listen to my favorite NPR source but this app (since the update) has just been nothing but a pain! Please fix it!!!
