WBEZ is great but this app isn't. One big problem I have is that it sometimes decides to play at about half volume. Plugged into my portable speaker, I can't hear it clearly at work when it does this. Another big problem is data usage. I listened to about four hours today and burned over half a gig. My work doesn't have WiFi so I'm gonna run outta data before the week if I keep using this app. Are the Pritzkers gonna throw down another generous donation to fix this app? My ten bucks a month isn't gonna be enough.
It stops playing very frequently. Why? I just want my Wbez. :(
App keeps crashing in the middle of streams.
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.
