I am using it because I am temporarily away from the Chicago area. I will join the crowd by saying that the random "welcome" messages that keep popping up are annoying - sometimes they interrupt the live stream at inopportune times. Recently, I discovered that I need to 'force stop" to get it to stop running, simply closing the screen does not work.
Love Wbez, My Father has listened in for years. I really enjoy this station. Like Father like Son. Thank You For Everything Chicago. We love you. Smooth Jazz Was My Favorite!
Even after the update, I am still having problems with the start/stop/jump ahead glitches others have reported. And now the app will not close & I have to force stop every time I use it. Love WBEZ but this app is disappointing.
As a High Fidelity member i really want this to work! This thing never works. Locks up, drops the stream about every 10 min, and keeps running even after i close it. I end up atreaning WNYC instead. Uninstalling for now.
I get 10 minutes of a program, then it stops and plays a recorded message and then repeats the process ad nauseum until I give up and put on Pandora. I love WBEZ but this ap is awful. Edit 5/13: this week it has had a much steadier stream. I don't know if it was updated recently but I have noticed a change. It will still stop, but not as much as before.
One of the worst apps I've ever seen. Fails at the basics. I shutter to think of how much donor money was dropped on this mess.
