Playback is good but too demanding for low end systems Big fan of LBC in general. This app plays audio at a good quality and rarely buffers. However I had to give it two stars because it is far too demanding on system resources even when playback is halted and just running as a background process. I was hoping when they gave this app a facelift they would improve its performance but no, moreover, I can stream video on other apps like YouTube and BBC iPlayer without the same performance problems.
Great Radio Best presenters: Iain Dale, Nick Ferrari, Steve Allen, Darren Adam, Ian Collins, Shelagh Fogarty & Lucy Beresford. lolbertarian bigots with tuneless shows: O'Brien and Nick Abbot. The App is very good. I couple it with my car radio using Bluetooth and listen to it while driving.
Always have to uninstall and install again I listen to LBC most of the day, but I'm getting tired with the app stalling. It only starts working again if I uninstall it and install again. Please fix as it's been like this for months.
Awful reconnect when training in London App constantly disconnects then closes if the signal drops for a minute or passes between towers even on 4g. Then needs to be manually reopened and watch a long add causing you to miss the show your listening to.
A good app, but... LBC is a commercial station (with on-air ads). Why put more ads in the app!? I often find myself sitting through an app-ad to get to on-air ads, to get to content. Not good.
Live great. Archives don't work. Live radio works just fine. The streaming starts automatically a few seconds after starting the app. But if I try to play a recording the app crashes and closes.
