Great App The only reason I didn't give it 5 is because it crashes quite a bit if it is not playing but sitting in recent apps. That however is only when re-opening and while playing content.
The connection to WOSU is dropped when my phone goes asleep. This is a new occurrence.
WOSU always has 5 star coverage, but I would put this app at 2 stars. It literally has one job, but listening to wosu through the app is often tempermental and will quit streaming when the screen times out, locks, or you switch apps. This is on a galaxy S6, so it's not an issue with they phone's hardware. Hopefully this is addressed in a future update.
Archaic I send at least three crash reports to them a day. I've been using this app for years with no improvement. I primarily use the "On Demand" feature. It constantly gets hung up when I leave it playing and switch apps, then open the app again. Frequently stops playing for no reason. Cannot pause the app using media buttons (literally every other audio app I have does this). Does not pause for other audio (text message, alert, Google maps navigation, etc. - another feature which every other audio app can do).
All things considered, NOT on point Not possible to listen to the live stream uninterrupted for more than a few minutes without it stopping to buffer. Sometimes it just stops all together and I have to restart app. Regardless, it doesn't pick up where it left off so I'll miss half the story.
Better than the real thing. I can take NPR everywhere there's cell service. What's not to love?
Added WOSU Passport!
