I love this app!!! I was a traveling salesman for years and this was my link to growth in Orthodoxy redeeming the time spent in those motel rooms. Now that I'm retired I still love it! I'm convicted that I need to support it financially more than I do.
Love the app. It does have issues resuming if I get a phone call. As far as navigation, if I silence the navigation app, it doesn't interrupt or fail. Any sound, longer than normal notifications can affect playback intermittently. I use it through my car Bluetooth, and the play / pause there works intermittently. If it does fail, I have to completely close and re-open the app to resume. I am now bouncing back and forth between this app and my Pandora "Byzantine chant" station. (I prefer this AF app because the commercials are fewer and way more relevant to my life in Christ, but Pandora connects directly with Ford SYNC (rather than Bluetooth alone), and I have more controls available through the car. That would be a feature I would recommend looking into :) I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Great listening! Thank God for all that put the effort in to make this app and all those that have content on the app
Often refuses to play in the background. Went to set my phone down and listen, but turning off the screen killed the app. AFR routinely gets preempted while driving, meaning I have to futz with my phone to start listening again. Once I get it going again it will shut off when I try to go back to the nav app.
5 stars for content - love this! 3 stars for the streaming - it cannot stream in the background. Once my screen times out, the app stops. A little frustrating - I am sure that they developers are aware of this and will fix with an update in the near future.
This is a good app with one MAJOR drawback. There is not feature (or if there is it is not intuitive how to find it) to search for podcasts on AFR. There are specific podcasts that I want to listen to and download, but cannot do online nor can I even find them in the app.
