Update. decided to try again. App still spotty. In addition it now give you need reports at least two a day which you can't turn off. unless I am missing something. i have tried this app again and still bad. Terrible app. As usual does not work on Android. In fact the last app was not as bad, but bad enough. C'mon guys not every one is an apple user. Fix the app for android. Uninstalled.....update. Tried it again. Still does not work. What a shower, who do not care if it works out not. Terrible
Still has serious issues. Streaming reliability is very important for people these days. Please fix it!! You can't kill this app if it's buffering. Streaming reliability is terrible. No way to turn off notifications. Horrible full page ads. The ones even Google are pushing back against. Fix the streaming. Fix buffering lockout problem. Have an option to turn off notifications. Remove full page ads.
Newstalk FM app Good app. Keeps me in touch with home while I'm abroad. Walking my dogs around Sicily while listening to the lads on Off The Ball, laughing at Sean Moncrief every afternoon and even enjoying arguing with George Hook (in my head anyway...) Latest update helped with reliability.
Live stream not working Recently live stream has ceased working, throwing up a message saying that it was unable to connect to Newstalk live stream - please try again. Newstalk TV streaming works fine. I've uninstalled & reinstalled numerous times & stream works fine on first use but then ceases to work for subsequent attempts.
A poor, unreliable app This app looks good, and has a good UI, but is very unreliable at it's core function of allowing access to live radio. It currently is not connecting at all, despite re-installing the app. Other previous faults have included difficulties in restoring the live feed following an extended pause. The access to podcasts and recorded shows has improved recently, but the main difficulty remains.
Total crap Notifications don't link to stories, they are dead links 90% of the time, can't switch off notifications, awkward layout, it's not a radio app nor a news app, it's just crap, no casting either, worst app I've used, not good enough for a station this size
