10/2/2017 updated the app and it is working better. 10/5/2017 app has been preforming better
I love the KUOW app since I no longer live in the Seattle area but can still listen to my favorite station. However, the latest update doesn't work as other users stated. Plus there is no way to send feedback from within the app. Please, fix the bugs ASAP!
Latest version (Sept 2017) stops playing when the screen goes to sleep. This is quite frustrating, as the point of radio is that it plays while I'm doing other things! Please fix this! And while you're at it, it would be great to have controls on the lock screen, like other streaming audio apps. And finally, be sure the audio stops when you're on a phone call. Thanks!
Latest version is unusable! Unable to play in the background or when the screen is off. Fails to keep the screen on (which would waste my battery anyway). No settings menu, redundant controls with icons that do not clearly indicate what they are meant to do. The new design style is appealing, modern, and quick, but this could be because of sacrifices of the content and usability compared to the previous app.
I love KUOW and can stream it from a couple of sources. I love that they have their own app, it's simply a shame that it doesn't actually work. In the last week alone I've tried to listen to it each day and haven't listened for more than 20 minutes before it crashes or locks up. My other radio streaming apps don't have this problem at all. Shame, I'd listen to them more often if the app actually reliably worked.
Update 9/14 - can't find my regular shows and it keeps dropping out in the middle of the live stream. The app for the most part of great for on the go listening. It does freeze from time to time and I get a lot of this app has stopped working warning messages but then it restarts and works just fine for another couple hours.
