I love The Current. I am a member and contribute monthly. I really want to give the app a better rating. However, the constant ad interruptions are incredibly frustrating. I always miss a favorite song because of this and then I have to listen to 3 more ads before the next song. There are more ads in this app than on the actual station. This is the third time I have tried the app. I uninstalled it previously because of the ad interruptions. They have only gotten worse. Uninstalling again.

Not sure where all the negative reviews for ad breaks are coming from, I've been a user for about 6 years now and have had no issues. I get 1-2 adds at the start of the stream and then no interruptions from there for hours of listening. I use this to listen to the current daily!

Plays for about a minute then crashes. Sometimes it teases you by actually playing for a few minutes, so you think it's finally working then... crash. This app used to work great. If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
