The app is great but recently it is not working well. The app constantly drops out and you have to reopen device and press play again or even close and restart the app. This seems to be an NPR issue because the same thing happens with my NCPR app. Both apps have been uninstalled and reinstalled, but this did not fix the problem. All other media and music apps work fine. This happens on 4g and wifi. NPR rocks anyway, just bummed about these recent issues!

I love and support WRVO and glad I can stream it, especially when I travel. But this app is a daily frustration and frequently cuts out and needs to be restarted. Even a momentary hiccup in the feed, often in the middle of a news report or interview, results in it repeating the call for support which totally kills the news info. I don't have the same problems with other streaming apps.

Clear and concise functionality. You can, quickly, catch-up at any time of day. A major drawback, though, is the tracking performed in the background. Most of which is by Google (36 different smartphone functions). One has to "force stop" in settings/apps. when not using the app. Fortunately, Duckduckgo's App Tracking Protection blocks the intrusion while the app is in use. I have deleted other apps because of their persistent tracking attempts.
