Random shutdowns, then Underwriter message Yeah, I'm not gonna listen to the underwriter message each time after the app just randomly stops playing. It's maddening.
IPhone app is better This app seems to work better on iOS. It cuts out, doesn't buffer, doesn't handle changes between 4g and 3g while other streaming apps have no issues. Very annoying having to restart the app. I listen while driving through the grapevine, so once it goes out, I don't even bother. It's even worse now, won't even kick on
Great station, horrible app Update May 17, 2016: It still stops, skips, freezes, rewinds to start of show but won't play -- bad as it could be. Many times get "streaming error" instead of programming. An embarrassment of an app. Great content. KPCC Apple app works better.
It's getting better- still has issue going from wifi to mobile data. Update 6/8/16- The app is better than it was. Faster start time and it hasn't frozen yet. One problem still- Leaving WiFi to mobile data makes it stop playing and have to relaunch app.... Previous March 2016 review- This is my favorite radio station but it is very frustrating when the app freezes during the live stream. I try to close and relaunch the app but that doesn't always work. There have been a couple updates over the months but it doesn't seem to have helped the freezing.
Never works KPCC, when will this ever work! All reviews complain of same inability to play for more than a few minutes on Android - help us, please!
Stops The app stops after a few minutes of listening and will not restart without rebooting the app. I wish I could listen to at least one segment, but it's impossible.
This release adds the Live Rewind feature back into the app, but now with fewer bugs! Thanks to everyone for their patience while we worked on fine-tuning this feature.
