I have been using the RNZ app for nearly a year now. Until yesterday, it was excellent. The app worked perfectly and the content (especially Saturday and Sunday morning) is generally very interesting. Yesterday, the app stopped working. It is not the wifi. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still does not work. I miss it already. This app goes through phases. Most of the time it is really good. Then, like last time, the blog replay simply stops working.

Great public news source, and the app is a great hub for having text, live radio and programmes all in one place. Most annoying thing right now is multiple breaking news alerts on COVID only taking you to the "live COVID Updates page". If you click on these when you get the alert, it's usually too soon for any info on the notification item to be there. If you click it later, the info on the notification item is long gone. I'm probably going to turn off notifications at this rate.

I want to love the app and I really appreciate the service it is trying for, but it almost unusable. It constantly stops and won't restart playing. When I pause it or stop my car the show won't start back up. Only restarting my phone will make the play button work again. I'm also a bit fed up with the notifications so I'll be turning those off.
