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.
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.
The 30 second fast forward or rewind feature never works and I have to restart it from the beginning. I even updated the app after initially having downloaded a year or more ago and it still does the same thing.
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.
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.
It never fully closes on my android devices, even after I attempt a force stop. It also has serious stability issues. Uninstalling for now.
