When listening to live radio it cuts in and out constantly. The persistent issue has put me off listening to RNZ live Makes listening to the news, weather or interesting interviews pointless. Have reinstalled the app multiple times with the same result. The issue is Not my phone because I stream Spotify, YouTube, audio books and radio stations from around the world with out any issues.

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.

I like this app, but since my phone's last software update it will no longer open from its notifications. Someone else reviewing here recently had that issue too. I'd like to be able to zoom in on photos, or have a link to open the story in the browser so I can do that there. I'd also like more nuanced control of alerts e.g. to be able to exclude breaking news about sport!
