Tried to load an add before starting the stream which makes the app crash. You have to restart it so that the stream will start without playing the add. Anytime you switch between cell towers or WiFi Hotspot the stream stops until you open the app again, then it restarts on its own. Sometimes the stream just stops for no reason, so you have to open the app and every few minutes to keep listening. I'm a first time member this year, but as this is my primary way of listening, it's probably the last year I'll be a member too.
Avid NPR listener. This app as it's been upgraded is easier to use. The station is a rich resource very accessible. No more driveway moments as I can turn the radio on in this app as I turn it off in my car and listen to it walking to and into the house.
UPDATE February 2017: After some in improvements to streaming since my last review, the app now stops when the device locks and cannot be restarted. You need to stop the app and restart it for streaming to resume. That makes it essentially useless. I still use it mostly at home over WIFI. The app is supposed to stream KUOW radio. Unfortunately, the Android version is just plain terrible. Streaming stops every minute or so, and you need to hit the play button to re-start streaming, which may or may not work. I use the app mostly at home over WIFI, so it's not a signal problem. My husband experiences the same issues. The app is pretty much useless the way it is (not) working now. Used to own an iPhone, never had trouble streaming KUOW with it.
I've been listening to kuow since 1971 even though I have lived far away I listen to it almost every day. Part of the joy is catching up with things I've missed earlier in the day. But mostly it's the depth and breadth of the programming.
This app is great when it actually works. It crashes or stops playing every 15 minutes or so. I've updated the app and even upgraded to Dual-band WiFi, but it still won't work for long enough to even hear the end of a story.
I was so excited when I saw this app get an update, but streaming issues seem to have gotten worse after the update - now I have to completely close and reopen the app in order to get streaming started again. Sadly, I will have to stop using this app if it's not resolved soon.
