This app keeps freezing and/or crashing. It's very hard to get it to stop and start again reliably. I usually have to open app management and force a stop then open it again. I have emailed LBC/the developers about this issue on several occasions without receiving a reply. Presumably my issues are not of interest to them.

Several weeks and email exchanges later, where I have provided all information requested, this app remains unstable. It is so hyper-sensitive to signal fluctuations that if I'm out and about I listen to other stations, despite LBC being my preferred choice. This app cuts out and reconnects so often (mainly on mobile data, but sometimes even on wifi) that it becomes too annoying to listen to and I switch to Times Radio or BBC instead.

Agree with other posters. So many glitches. Turns off on screen timeout. The shortcut link shows the station isn't playing while you are sat there listening to it. When you do try to stop it from the shortcut it doesn't work so you have to go in to the actual app. Why have you broken this? Don't bother telling me to email someone...fix the ruddy app.
