I like the ability to pull up previous broadcasts is very nice. The links to more stories is also nice. There is one BIG fix that needs to happen. The stream is lost when your phone jumps to a different network, tower or wifi connection. This is not a problem for other streaming programs and it would be awesome if this problem can be fixed.
Keeps stopping I've used this app a for a while as my car's radio won't pick up signal. Unfortunately, after my phone (nexus 6P), updated to Android 7, it now stops every few minutes just randomly. I'm extremely disappointed that it's no longer working as well... I just want my WBEZ!
Nice design, poor performance. Every time I use this app, either to livestream or replay, playback stops for no reason. Will continue to use Stitcher instead, though I will give this another shot if improvements are made.
Buffering is terrible. During 40 mins of listening, buffering happened 6 times. And every time, the 'thank you for listening, we'll now return you to our program is process' message is sooooooo long that I miss more from the message than from the initial glitch. Please fix both of these because I love WBEZ.
Sound cuts out. There's no way to shut off the app. Today I paused to make a call then tried to go back to listen and my phone froze. I rebooted the phone and still no luck. This app needs a lot more work.
Poor design, poor performance. But a very useful product, time shifting the radio. Really should have the pledge free stream.
