It was great, I loved it. Then today it just stopped working, April 1st. I see another reviewer had the same problem. It shows the arrow to hit play, then buffers and back to the play arrow. So I uninstalled. I hope they fix it soon. Update: I was contacted by them, they said they had an outage and are working to fix it. I'm glad to know it's not my device and I appreciate them letting me know. I'll try to download it again after awhile, as I really enjoy it.

Downloaded app and even when I selected option to "listen live" hearing something entirely different than what is on the air through the radio. And, when I tried to send feedback through the app it wouldn't send. Junk!

Keeps stopping after a couple of minutes. I have to get my phone and hit play over and over , every few minutes. Not at all what i expected. Rather than wait for the canned answer saying " Im sorry , blah , blah...." i will uninstall app and maybe try it another time , once all the bugs are worked out.
