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.
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.
Constantly crashing and fails to play in the background. I'm constantly having to open my phone and fiddle with the app to get it to play. This happens every few minutes. It completely crashes once every half hour or so, which makes it a huge pain to listen to even one single podcast episode. Talk radio streaming is at such a low bit-rate that it's often painful to listen to with headphones because of how high pitched and shrill it sounds.
Since the new update, the application is not functional. Cannot stream the talk channel or music channel. Unfortunate.
Just what I was looking for!
- User can quickly access audio player via App Shortcuts (for Android 7.1+ devices)
- We made an under-the-hood upgrade to the app's audio player
- Bug fixes galore
- We've updated our minimum supported Android version to 4.1 to make best use of advancements on the Android platform
