About this app

WVXU Public Radio App:

The WVXU Public Radio App allows you to listen to WVXU live, pause and rewind the live audio, and view the program schedule for all the WVXU streams at once! You can explore On Demand content, search for stories, bookmark a story for later, and wake up to WVXU with the alarm clock!

• Integrated program schedules for every station. You can display up to three of your favorites at a time or flick once to see the schedules for all of your favorite stations.
• One click stream switching – flip over to the program you noticed on another stream with a single click.

The programs are great and all, but I can't play/pause it on the lockscreen, or with my headphones, which means I have to unlock my phone each time, a big problem when I'm at work - the place where I really want to use this app. Worse is that I can't functionally pause it, because pausing it doesn't actually let me play from that spot again; it just refreshes and starts from live. I first downloaded this to see if it would use less data than the TuneIn Radio app - nope. Going back to that now.

I love that I get the news I enjoy and depend on in the palm of my hand. I would give it 5 stars except that the app glitches on both my Samsungs. It won't allow me to press play from the lock screen only pause. Also the symbol identifying that the app is in use will not disappear when I close the app. Like the phone still thinks I'm listening when I'm not.

Used to be a great app. Now it only plays audio for a few seconds before it cuts out. Hit play and it plays for a few seconds then cuts out again. Or I'm standing in the shower and it stops playing and I'm not sure whether the app stopped or if Mary Ann Z just forgot her lines again.
